Let me just note for the record that I categorically deny any allegations of misbehavior by the brave members of the AUC. We just want what's right for the AUC for our bank accounts for Columbia.

The United Business and Farmers Cooperative would like to point out to the help the AUC that they might want to spell the name of the country correctly first.

After all, we are here to help.

No, that was the correct spelling. AUC is on the board of this fine institution:

¿Qué?

You guys discuss spelling. We, in the meantime, mind our own business. It's already past noon and we still haven't kidnapped anyone today. Time to get to work!

Will have the first turn up tonight on Dropbox.

Cartels are up first and play Ops+Special activity in order to rally in four spaces: Cali, Guaviare, Meta East and West. We then cultivate a base in Putumayo into the Amazonia dept.



Government man is up as 2nd eligible.

The government has been carefully checking the Law of the Land and is pretty sure that the 'cultivate' action to move a base to Amazonas is illegal. It has to be a dept. with MORE THAN 1 population, where Amazonas has none.

Just trying to maintain order in the new Colombia.

Well heck, we wouldn't want that. If the government man does not mind, please move that base to La Guajira-Cesar.

Ok, so I hate to do this but the second part of the 'cultivate' action says that the department not only has to have pop. >0, but also more cartels guerrillas than police. So if 0 cops, there still needs to be 1 guerrilla.

Pick again narco-fiend.

To quote our dear friend wifwendell,



Let us get rid of the base in order to pay for part of the rallies I did. The price was four resources and now it is 1.

The MAN has decided to pass on this card with the hope of greater opportunities ahead.

2 questions:
- Nik, am I supposed to apply any corrections to your turn?
- I'm probably just stupid but I don't quite get the naming convention for our files.

These shouldn't stop me from doing my move. FARC takes the lim ops and does a rally op in the mountains of Huila-Tolima.

Next card:




AUC is up

1)No I did the corrections to the Cartels turn.
2) The Naming convention is AA-Card-Turn-ActingPlayer-NextEligibleplayer,so Wif would call his save: AA-2a-AUC-Gov

Government will pass AGAIN.

Gentlemen, sorry for the delay. I'm currently on the road dealing with some problems that arose out of my transitional personal situation. I'll be back in our game shortly. Hopefully later today.


EDIT: Just finished my move. I took the event, did some sabotaging north of Antioquia and some shifting in Antioquia. The Cartels are up next.

Aha!

Just a note, I don't think edited posts show up in subscriptions. Cartels might not even know it's their turn.

Onward, towards a new Colombia!

You're right, they don't. At least not in threads - they do in geeklists, though. Weird.
