Thoughts

That’s a pretty passive start. I’d like to capitalise on it, but it probably means Hardened Mox is coming out next turn, and frenzied Wisps can’t help get past that. Rook can, though. The alternative is to lay down Rich Earth to respond in kind. I’ll try opening with Birds again.

Thoughts

What do I expect to see? Stewardess of the Undone would get a patrolling Wisp out of the way for the Mox to do some real damage. Stewardess + Nullcraft doesn’t quite let the Mox kill Rook, so I think having him in Squad Leader is still safe. 7 gold lets him play double Stewardess and worker. Maybe Seers to make use of Battle Suits, but I doubt it. I don’t remember Shadow using them much, but my memory is pretty hazy on that.

With all of that, I think I’m fine to put Rook in Squad Leader, and have the Wisp in a bonus slot in case of Nullcraft. I can keep the rest out of patrol, in case Shadow decides Forgotten Fighter is worth it for a change (probably not). I see no reason to change tech plan yet.

I’m not sure what to worker here. It’s probably between Spore Shambler and Forest’s Favour, since I’ll probably be favouring weenies. I’ll keep Forest’s Favour: Shadow’s probably taken a Stewardess, so the Shambler is a liability.

I should have put the Tiger Cub in Lookout. Oh, well. I think I can hold off of Tech II for a turn, I’ll only be drawing one card after the reshuffle.

Thoughts

Killing off the crash bomber to play around kidnapping, I don’t think they have another way of breaking my tech 2 this turn (outside of crazy blood lust plays, and I think I can beat them with resources then)

@charnel_mouse action to you, rounds waiting on ya :wink:

I think I might just fold, actually. I’ve been too busy to focus on the last game or two, and it’s not fair for me to keep dragging things out. I don’t think I’ve teched very well, and I’ve given Shadow a lot of free kills, so he’s probably about to steamroll me. Good game, Shadow, sorry to duck out. @FrozenStorm

(My technician draw was a Kidnapping, if people want to know.)

Hope everything is okay IRL, np for ducking out, real life always takes priority.
Thanks for the game :slight_smile:
