Begin turn Hacan:

CC-TAP: 2/3/3-0/0/0

Moved carrier and three troops to claim the Rigel system.

CC-TAP: 2/3/2-0/0/0

I'll be available all day if we happen to get to my next turn.

OK, now everyone needs to decide if that are following the Tech card or not. I believe that should start with the person to the "left" of me, which is N'Orr.

I am not exactly sure how they handle this in other games, but I have seen a 24 hour limit imposed.

Once you three have responded, it will be N'Orr's turn again.

In one game I am monitoring, they are going ahead with actions and simply stating in their actions whether or not they are following.

So, N'Orr's turn, whenever Ryan is ready.

I could be okay with that. I will not be using tech. I will also post my turn tonight. I thought I was going to get some free time but my children have decided I don't...;)

NP. That is expected when playing by forum. Most games install a 24 hour limit to post your turn, unless you notify of an extended absence beforehand. Not sure what they do if you miss your turn...

I am assuming that there is a planet in your home system (since newly acquired planets are acquired exhausted) that provides the 4 resources needed to build those units and that you exhausted the planet(s).

I can't see the log files till I get home from work.

If that is true, Hacan is up.

Ryan, I just noticed the names of your log files.

I just want to make sure that you know in a 4 player game, turn order is based on the highest card value that each player has. So, you are 1, Hacan is 2, 1X is 4 (so 3rd), and I am 6 (and last).

All log files look good. Waiting on Hacan.

Thanks, I guess I should look at that section of the rules a little closer. I will do that tonight.

cheers

We're all newbies here :) I like that about this game, we are all learning both the game and the interface...

Begin HACAN Turn 2 (Trade)

CC-TAP 2/3/2 - 0/0/0

Activated TRADE strategy Card

Received 3 TG

Trade Negotiations Open

CC-TAP 2/3/2 - 3/0/0

End Turn

L1Z1X, SOL: I see we are close together, would you like to make a trade agreement for the betterment of our respective peoples? In return I would ask for military protection and free passage through your systems.

I would definitely accept that trade, although I can not guarantee free passage. As the Hacan, surely you can see that the best financial benefit to you comes from acquiring one of my 2s, and N'Orr's 2.

As for your trade with 1X, I can see how you would want some type of assurances against their military aggression. However, please think before you give them easy access to more resources. Once they build up a fleet, they will have no need to respect the agreement.

As for my other trade token, I offer it to N'Orr as a 2 for 2 trade, unless you can convince Hacan to accept your 2, in which case I will offer a 2 for a 1.
