A life, some would argue, is a series of problems. There’s no denying the truth in that – but why get lost in it? Why not rise above the truth… and lead a good life? Shouldn’t we all look at problems as a chance for us to find… solutions?

Welcome to the Moscow comrades!






Players starting in Moscow Round 3:

namyzarc
FATNOOB
interessovat
SailingChris
MaytheOdds
Rhanddom
Mmazala*
Itai
ranapue


*: Mmazala has been exiled from Leningrad and may not be transferred this round.

Starting leader
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Brian Thomas (FATNOOB)


“The arbitrary power of the Government was unlimited, and unexampled in history; freedom of the Press, of opinion and of movement were as thoroughly exterminated as though the proclamation of the Rights of Man had never been. The Communist Party apparatus was the most gigantic mafia the world has ever known.”

The duly appointed and rightful governor of Moscow as decreed that revolutionary garb be worn by all in order to best honor the death of comrade Lenin and show unity with the workers of the world. All citizens will adhere to this order by wearing outfits signifying their fervor for the Revolution. Those who do not will be brought in for questioning. Players may not public color reveal or color share.

The leader of this room must choose TWO PERSONS to transfer from MOSCOW to LENINGRAD. Leader, bold that you've chosen hostages to the room thread, and PM me your choices. In addition you must send me your executive decision (choose one) and any conditionals, including preference of transfers, in the case that your chosen transfers are not viable.

Your deadline to do this is Thursday, 10:00 BGG time (CST).

Executive Decisions for Round Three:

Default - Internal Security Screening - You know how many of each color is entering your room next round. You do not know to whom they belong however.

NKVD Interrogation - Signify one of your transfers to be interrogated. They must answer one YES OR NO question truthfully as if they had been a victim of the interrogation power.

Assume additional powers - You may discard your own role card for one of the buried role cards to be decidedly randomly. This new role will always be the same color as your original role.

If you have a rules or role question, geekmail me.

Please remember: All players assigned into a room MUST NOT CHEAT and look at the other room's thread. They may only read and post in their assigned room and chambers.

Locked Votes: Due to the nature of Lobbyist and other roles in this game, Locked Votes may not be unlocked during the round, unless a power forces them to re-lock a vote.

Hello Comrades ! How can I help you ensure that our Nation takes its rightful place as the dominant one so that it can then ensure the victory of socialism under its authority in the entire world ?

The current fashion in Moscow is to private color reveal to me, after which I private color reveal back. And then things get interesting.

Both Greys are in alliance with my team - although they don't know that about each other. There is a fair prospect of this game not ending in a coin flip.

Greetings Comrades! I bear excellent news from Best Korea. Though the movement is still underground, there are many prominent leaders who are very amenable to our suggestions. I can only hope that these leaders manage to spread Communism throughout their land. With luck, we may yet see our ideology take roots around the globe and displace the disgusting amounts of greed that capitalism brings to the human race!

Because the Revolution is alive and well and spreading, everyone has been outfitted with Revolutionary garb. That means no public color reveals or color sharing - we are all in this together!

Friends from Leningrad - any good news from the West? In the wake of the Revolution, postal service has been suspended so we know very little about the happenings in the great city of the Baltic.

Mmazala - your compatriots are all checked into the National Hotel, just across the street from the Kremlin (more private tours are available today!). However my agents have noted that you are renting an apartment, suggesting you may be with us for a while? I have a few questions for you:

What type of vodka would you like served while working?

Would you like your office to overlook Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, or the river?

Who are you working for?

also, oops about the color share.

There is nothing to share, we are all red at heart.

Rhaddom, I will consider accepting the offer if someone else can vouch for the fact that terrible things will not happen to me.

There is no role power that is triggered by a private color reveal, if that's what you're asking. Six out of eight of my fellow Muscovites accepted a similar offer yesterday, and received in return a complete and accurate transcript of votes and card transactions in Leningrad in Round One. If you take me up on it now, then whatever I do wind up offering in terms of information this round, you'll be included.

Next up? In fact, it might be wise for everybody to private color reveal to me again; a Grey might need cover, especially if the Ghost showed me somebody else's card yesterday. The Ghost can do that, right - private color reveal using any card he/she has vacuumed up?

namyzarc, SailingChris - there is no point in not private color revealing to me unless your card has been taken by a Vacuum or the Ghost (or, I suppose, you wish to make it appear as though that has happened). If you wish to discuss the point, feel free to whisper to me.

Private color reveal to me and I'll fill you in, at least partly, whichever team you're on.

Correct. Lenin's ghost does the following: You keep the card of any player that private reveals with you. You may show any player any stolen card.

Rana, while I appreciate your vote, I don't believe you have to vote for the leader. It will take 5 votes for someone else to usurp me, otherwise I remain leader.

This is how I read the rules - someone that has played this more could confirm though
