Hello everyone,

I would like to organize another PBF base game of Quartermaster. The game will be played in english and the rules will be quite the same as the games before (no mp, open discussion allowed, etc.). Tournament rules (no 2 capitals victory but immediate victory if one side is 30+points ahead of the other side at the end of the US turn) and Resources reallocation will be used though.
The original version of the cards will be used, not the French one, but I will use the french board (and its own scoring track) as I already have it and am used to it (and there are no gameplay-related differences with the original one).

Inscriptions are open until sunday September 4th 23:59 (BGG time?). If there are less than 6 people who are interested, we will leave the inscriptions open for a little longer. If there are more, 6 of them will be chosen at random. Newbies are welcome, provided they read and understood the rules (it's better to have played the game at least once beforehand though).
Once these 6 are chosen, we will see how we handle the nation/side preferences: people's choice or random (although I prefer random).

I'm interested. Lots of experience with the game, but this'd be my first forum game after watching a few.

Re: New PBF Game ? New PBF Game. [Base Game] [recruiting]
Sorry GrandBeus, but you are a bit late

I intend to handle another PBF game after this one and you'll have a saved seat on this one if you are still interested...

So we have 7 players for 6 seats, time to draw at random who is eliminated. The unlucky one will also have a reserved seat on the next PBF table.

Sorry, Heikki Laakkonen, but the dice has spoken Like I said, if you are still around for the next PBF Game, you'll have a reserved seat.


Alright, now let's see who gets to play what nation... How do you want to proceed? Like I stated, I would be in favor of random, but feel free to state your opinion on the matter.

Re: New PBF Game ? New PBF Game. [Base Game] [recruiting is over]
Alright. Let's see what the dices tell us:

bakija will play as Germany
Hammy will play as the United Kingdom
mdrog2 will play as Japan
senik will play as USSR
Oakfed will play as Italy
pgkashmir will play as the USA


I'll send you your starting hand by geekmail. Please send me back (by geekmail) the 3 cards you choose to discard and don't forget to mention which card is on top of your discard pile.
Now with the rules, here they are and as you'll notice I shamelessly stole them from an opening post by senik:

Communication is free in this thread. Feel free to roleplay if you like, or not to if you don't. PMing your team mates to coordinate strategies is cheating and will ruin the game for everybody so don't do it.
Try to post your turn within 24 hours after the previous player's turn. If you cannot, try to mp me or post a message here, thanks
I will try to make board update as often as I can
Tournament Victory Rule in Effect: If a team leads by 30+ points, at the end of a round (after the US turn), they are victorious. There is no victory awarded for holding two enemy home spaces.
Reallocate Resources Rule in Effect: Discard 4 cards from your hand to search your draw deck for a card and add it to your hand. Only Build Army, Build Navy, Land Battle, or Sea Battle cards can be chosen. Reallocate Resources is only allowed at the beginning of your Play step, before playing a card, and can only be used once per turn.
If you wish to discard any cards during your Discard step, please publicly post how many you discard. If you do not say anything, it will be assumed that you didn't discard anything. You will obviously also need to PM me to let me know which cards you discarded.
In order to speed up the game, a player may submit "conditional" moves to me (via GeekMail) in advance of their turn. Those orders will be processed when it is that country's turn.
Most important rule: let's all have fun together!

I'll add just this bit: try to post your turn like this to make it easier for other players/me/the cheeering crowd to follow the game:

[Name of the nation] Turn X
Play Step: Tell us which card you play. Some cards allow you to choose between options, so don't forget to be precise.
Supply Step: Everything ok or this/these pieces are out of supply and removed
Victory Step: X victory points (precisions if it is not obvious)
Discard Step: No discard or I discard X card(s)
Draw Step: I draw X card(s)


(if like most people including me, you are lazy and copy/paste another post, don't forget to double-check to see if there is nothing wrong.)
There will be a map update at the end of each round (after US turn).


Once I received everyone's discard choices, I'll post the opening board and Germany may begin.

Re: Phony War [Base Game] [recruiting is over]
Random was fine with me, so that worked out :-)

Now need to get in character for playing Italy... maybe I should brag about our flying battleships?

Is it for Germany, Italy and Japan to sign their surrender?

No it is from that nice man Mr Hitler who says that there will not be a war and there will be peace for our time.

Re: Phony War [Base Game] [recruiting is over]
Unfortunately no, I'm still waiting for one discard list.
This player seems to be very fond of RP and right now, his interpretation of a sleeping giant is stunning
I hope he finds a terrible resolve soon so we can begin though.
