Avalon Hill's Dune - Play Thread


#647

Hmm could be us. We need to voice publically first right? Let me check rules…


#648

Looks like BG vs Emperor

Then

Fremen vs Atreides


#649

•The precise sequence of activities in a battle is:

  1. Bene Gesserit and Allies issue the Voice command,
  2. Play Karama to cancel the Voice.
  3. Atredies issue the Prescience question,
  4. Play Karama to cancel the Prescience.
  5. Answer the Prescience question (if not canceled).
  6. Atredies Play Karama to view entire battle plan.
  7. Play Karama to cancel Kwisatz Haderach.
  8. Play Karama to cancel Sardaukar or Fedaykin bonus.
  9. Commit battle plans.
  10. Reveal battle plans.
  11. Resolve the battle.

Sorry got distracted by a bit of torture there. Purifying minds and all that. BG issues the following Voice command:

Emperor must play a Shield.

@PangolinPaws, will you play a Karama to cancel that?


#651

No, I will not be cancelling that.


#652

Ok for presience, I think you submit plans to carrot and I ask one thing you played. You can cancel that too, so let carrot know if you do.


#653

All done. Over to you @Oly and @CarrotandStick


#654

Have PM’d carrot with my question. In the mean time, I reckon @Knish and @IsAnythingReal could get started on theirs with Atreides using Voice, unless you want to see what happens with us before deciding?

Actually, maybe better to wait. If I lose then it’s all down to that battle.


#655

That doesn’t seem likely right now, though…


#656

Traitors… traitors lurk everywhere…


#657

Good to hear you’re confident of my victory though, I’ll inform the troops. They’ll like that.


#658

Oh yes, I’m very confident, you’ll be fine, perfectly fine.

…traitors really are everywhere though, aren’t they


#659

@CarrotandStick waiting on prescience reply from you.


#660

Hello everyone, sorry I’ve been absent, my new job is…cerebrally demanding =P
I’ll try and have something up tonight!


#661

Okay, I’ll get onto combat now, but first please behold the token stack redesign and tell me if it’s better or worse. I think better?


#662

Rules stuff:
“When resolving battles, the first player is named the Aggressor until all battles involving their Army Tokens have been fought… Then the player to their immediate right then becomes the Aggressor and so on, until all battles (in an area) are resolved.”
So my understanding is that the Emperor is the Aggressor (“Ties are won by the Aggressor.”) as he is before me in the player order, even though I moved into an area to initiate combat. Let me know if I’m wrong there.


#663

That is, indeed, correct.


#664

Does that mean we’re waiting on me (I’ve lost track again)?


#665

Waiting on :carrot: now. The battleplan submission and presience bit is done on my side.


#666

For sure a worm got him. @PangolinPaws we may as well see who won. Here’s what I submitted to @CarrotandStick, who can confirm latter if he gets out of the worm’s belly:

Defense card: Snooper
Attack card: Poison

Troop strength: 0
Leader: Wanna Marcus (5)
