Ouch! What madness is this!? Fisticuffs right out of the gate! You wound me, sir!

Also, all your numbers seem to line up, so it seems like everything’s going smoothly on the technologistical front so far. (:

Well. That’s a lot of stuff to deal with on turn 2. I couldn’t efficiently afford to get rid of multiple dudes, so I decided to wall up a little and get to tech 1. I was seriously hoping you wouldn’t draw the building inspector on turn 1. What a pain.

I remembered that Drakk’s midband will make it easy to kill Quince, so I’m hoping he frees up Zane for me w/o the need for a HH. If I built the HH, he would for sure kill Quince, and then I wouldn’t need it.

I built Jail because I remembered how much it sucks to be running Drakk with a Jail on the board.

After the draw… no CM, though I have a 2/3 chance of drawing it when Quince dies; if Quince doesn’t die, all the better. Aven isn’t terrible either, as it’d be another oppressive target for CM.

You, sir, forced me into a tough situation. I’m now regretting starting Drakk. The plan was to get him killed off quick for the extra damage from his top band, but I should have gone straight for Vandy and her shenanigans. And now, thanks to the jail, I had to go down a card. Oh yeah, and there’s the issue of the wide open patrol zone. Ah well. At least I cleared you out a bit. Playing in the forums, while not nearly as good as IRL, is surprisingly fun.

Drakk went to Lv. 3 when Quince died. Would you like to spend your float to midband and heal him?

Oh yeah…thanks. And no. I floated for a different reason I’ll fill you in on after I see if it works out how I want. I was thinking about when Drakk dies how I’ll need to level up your hero, but somehow forgot that mine gets that deal as well. You’re a prince among peasants.

It’s not required, but I like to bold anything I do that affects my opponent’s board or their ability to play cards, build buildings, etc., so they don’t miss the most important stuff.

I drew a CM!
It took me a long time to figure out this turn. Manufactured Truth with a Fencer in play, CM, Zane’s own shenanigans all gave me a ton of options. I could have midbanded Zane, CM’d Newsman and Fencer, had Fencer kill Drakk to max Zane, then have Zane+TD take out Tech I. But he has useful Tech 0’s, he has 3 ATK on the board, and it sounds like he’s got Vandy tricks up his sleeve.

Ultimately, I decided that Jail-neutered Drakk ain’t that bad, even with his midband, unless he has units. And he’ll have to play another Fencer or Rambaster plus something else (going down further on cards) to get something with haste out. If he could kill my patroller, max Drakk (for 3) could take out my Jail, or midband Drakk could take out Zane, maxxing; but Bombaster can’t kill TD because TD is untargetable. And this gets me a worker and Tech I. Also, TD won’t kill Drakk, leaving him stuck with the little goblin if he doesn’t play a haste unit.

I’ve teched in two 1-cost Tech I units who both play well with CM: Hound gives me half-decent attack to swap onto my weenies; Calypso sidelines after a CM is played. Both leave plenty of money for spells and hero levels, and Quince and Geiger are both cheap and fun.

After the draw… A Hound and I re-drew the first CM. If he has the 2nd Fencer/Rambaster in hand, and if he’s willing to go down on cards to take TD out, and if he kills Zane, then this will be disappointing. He’s certainly got options at that point. But if Zane’s still alive, double-CM is insanely efficient, especially with the Hound drop.

I thought I had maybe worked myself out of a hole last turn. Alas, not. That Chaos Mirror trick was sexy. BTW I floated that gold last turn in the hopes that I might get a little extra done this turn so I didn’t feel pressured to make a worker if I wanted to build my hand up. I had lofty plans on killing that jail with the Rambaster. You know what stopped me? The untargetable on Traffic Director. I couldn’t sac Bombaster to kill him, allowing the Rambaster to get to the jail and taking it out. So as it stands now I STILL couldn’t make a worker cuz I need the cards and didn’t accomplish what I needed either, other than removing Zane.

I’ll now stop with the long descriptions and just play the damn game. :wink:

Thought of something I totally should have done before floating that much gold. Is there a way at this point I can make that change now that it’s already paid me for my float? Am I allowed to just manually change my gold amount and build a heroes hall as an addition to the turn above? I promise there will still be a little left over for the Gunpoint Taxman should you have him and be able to use him. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Well, you’ve already seen your next hand. So if this were a tournament game, you’d go into File -> Revision History. Then you’d open up some drop-downs on the right side and find an earlier version of your spreadsheet before you ended your turn. Then you’d add in the action/cost for creating the Heroes’ Hall (noting 4 HP in the appropriate cell of the Miscellaneous Data column), then hit Discard/Draw again, which would re-randomize your deck before drawing, so you don’t know if your next hand would be the same.

Of course, in this particular case, you had exactly 4 cards left in your deck, you knew what they were before drawing, and you drew them all. So even in a tournament game you could get away with just editing your turn and updating your spreadsheet in this situation.

Since this is a casual, I would have been fine with you just editing your turn even if you had already seen your hand and didn’t know what it would be ahead of time.

So yeah, edit it when you get a chance to add in the build a HH action, and adjust the float to $2. Make sure you add a line in the Buildings section for your HH (you can look at the text before your Base and Tech I for how to input the Heart icon if you don’t want to dig through the emoji menu). And edit the Gold line near the bottom. Then don’t forget to edit your Get paid + float line in the Action Gold column and the HP in the HH cell on the right. (:

I’ll take my turn assuming the HH is in place.

Well, since he skipped a worker as P1 (it’s like watching myself last fall), I’m going to try to punish it by teching a Detonate and a Marauder for Anarchy Tech II (I’ll probably have a few turns). Unit spam!

It’s too bad he (smartly) killed Zane. The Chaos would have been crazy otherwise.

[/details]

Thank you sir. I think my sheet’s all set. That will be my only takeback…this one’s quickly getting out of hand anyway. And yeah, I know killing the jail kills the guy inside, but it has to go.

Question before I go…you looked at my hand with your spell. How did you actually see the cards? Did that get built in? Or do you need me to type my hand out for you?

Another quick question… it doesn’t apply to our game, but it looks to me based on the fact that Jail specifically states “from hand,” that forecasted creatures circumvent the jail. Am I correct?

If I chose to look at your discard pile, I would have had to ask you and wait for your response. But for hand, I just look at the “Next hand” detail in your last post.

You are! (Side effect: they also don’t jibe with Drakk’s maxband.) But yeah, apparently it’s hard to imprison people who haven’t been born yet.

I never even noticed that “next hand” thing. Cool. Except could anyone do that at any time if they wanted to cheat? Is it just a gentlemen’s agreement that you leave it alone unless you’re allowed?

I have an event to attend. I will have to take my next turn this evening.

Yeah, there are a ton of ways to cheat, so everything’s honor system. (:

No worries. When I first started, I found that one turn a day was best for my mental health, 'cause it was taking me sometimes several hours to work out really complicated turns. The beauty of asynchronicity is you can post as often or as infrequently as you like. (:

Man, with MT, CM, and Zane, there are so many ways this turn could have gone. I could have played defensively, teched up, then gone for Detonate+Marauder next turn. But where’s the fun in that when you can get so many efficient kills, cards and $!?

I was having trouble deciding between board-wiping, breaking Tech II, and breaking HH. I could even have broken HH and hit Tech II for 3. This is a weak compromise. I ultimately decided that Drakk is too scary with a Fencer on deck, esp. if I leave Rambaster out, and his HH will feel demoralizingly worthless with two heroes dead. 3 damage on Tech II puts it in Aven range for next turn. He’ll be able to kill or break at least one thing with Fencer coming out, but he’ll have to decide between Zane and Jail. If Zane survives, I can still Detonate.

I decided to tech Ready or Not because I’m rolling in $ and I’ve never used it, and it seems fun with our board states. Argonaut to get some beef out on my side as long as I’m loitering at Tech I for a while.

After the draw… Redrew that same CM. It is the gift that keeps on giving, even after I had to worker one last turn. I really hope Zane lives. If he doesn’t, Quince+MT is the poor man’s CM, and voila, my BI or TD is a Fencer.

Maintain, maintain. Delay the plan, but keep it going.

Side note: I love this deck. It might be one of the most fun to play that I’ve tried, even when I’m losing.

Side note 2: If he ever does get TQ on the board, Quince Midband and Chaos Mirror are both capable of abusing it. Mind Control is also an expensive possibility.
