hmmm, interesting. the tower throws me for a loop. wasnt expecting him to suspect me.

well, all that does is delay breaking the other tech buildings. i REALLY need an earthquake next hand.

at least no gunship next turn. and hopefully my flagbearer ninja strategy lasts one more turn as well.

well, here’s hoping he doesnt have kidnapping. this is the best i can do without drawing earthquake - which would have been game.

#106

Those sets levels won’t fizzle, they’ll go to Jaina (or Drakk if you want to re-order your turn). Does that change anything?


#107

woops, lvls to jaina.

Well this was on a knive’s edge, but I managed to find lethal. GG WP!

#109

uhmm, am i wrong or MM is redundant? the tanks alone deal 16 dmg!


#110

Haven’t you ever played a Final Fantasy game, Legion? It’s called Overkill, you get bonuses for it :slight_smile:

But yes, I couldn’t remember if the tanks were +3 or +4 to buildings. Really need autocard to get fixed, it’d be awesome if the dev open sourced it!


#111

dahhh! nice play. for some reson, i thought the tower could only detect a single instance of targeting. my bad.

i dont even feel bad about that one.


#112

GG WP! You had me on the ropes, looks like an unfortunate miss on Earthquakes was my saving grace (and not patrolling Rook, that would have saved you from lethal)

That damn Flagbearer was not something I was prepared for! You can see I had a Kidnapping in the deck and ready, but I was 1 gold shy of killing the flagbearer AND taking the GN. In hindsight, Chaos Mirror would have been better


#113

yeah, i stumbled my way into that end game strategy. i would have teched teh School earlier had i thought of it, plus included an IPN.


#114

Well I’m game to play again whenever, shall I start? Same deck for you?

yeah, lets keep it going.

Thoughts

i think IPN and fox den’s school would be a good combo. guards against kidnapping without the tower, which means ill have to be willing to go for his tower anyways.

with his opening, my hero’s never survive. and no grappling hook next turn…so i think ill try something different. viper to sq to make hi use dog there, and smoker in scav to at least get a gold back. ill play this like green and just try to benefit using rewards and my gold advantage.

My Thoughts

Hmm, tower, interesting. I think I just want to float a ton and go hard next turn? I could Hero’s Hall but more likely I’ll fast-tech?

I can shove w/ Zane, kill Rook, and break his tech 1… tempting but I don’t know that it buys me as much.

Generic Chaos Mirror and Kidnapping added to the deck to deal with various possible circumstances
