Here are the rules.

Here is the errata. (Although, I will admit I haven't read this yet.)

Here is the page to download the Vassal mod. Please use version 1.3.

I extort the hell out of all of you.

I will negotiate to help out people now and then. As the crime syndicate, I may or may not end up with many resources...

In my face to face game last weekend, the Syndicate snuck in a victory at the last minute.

Hi everyone. Our game is set up and ready to go. I have shared the dropbox file with all the players.

26July is the first faction.

That's only because Castro had no idea what he was doing.

Ryan, thanks for setting up.

Can I suggest a new naming convention for the files?

001-Setup-26j indicating file number(increases by one each file-how did something-who's up next.

So the next file would be as an example

002-26j-Syn Saying 26j did their turn and Syndicate is up.

This way you can see at a glance who is up next too.

It has worked well in my previous 3 pbem's.

Government for the win!

26j is up

I understand what you mean, and I'll think about it. However, I find that naming system super confusing. Maybe that's because I don't go by the file names when I am determining who's turn it is. I go by the forum.

In our Thunder Alley game, it really throws me off. I feel like my turn should say yellow (not black) because it indicates that the log file is yellow's turn.

That's why I went for a straight up number sequence. That way the only thing to worry about is the next number.

However, as I am typing this I get your system much better. The first bit is the number, the second bit says who's turn it is, and the third bit says who's next. Still, it just doesn't look right to my eyes.

Either way, I'll put it to a vote. Chris and Justin, what do you think?

I like the file telling me who is up next, so I can quickly check dropbox instead of looking at the thread.

Shortening my proposal to number and who is up next might be better?

Now that I've been thinking about it, I like Stig's method better. I will make the changes.

Comparing Cuba Libre and Thunder Alley, I can see you don't like it in TA, as the turn order is fixed there. In Cuba Libre the turn order is all over the place.

This system works better in this type of game.

Yeah, I totally get it now. Thanks for the help. This is the kind of thing I figured I would mess up my first time "hosting" a Vassal game.

By the way, I might not be able to rename the files until this evening, but it shouldn't really make a difference.

I'm not really bothered either way. Whatever method has me clicking my faction when it's my turn is good with me. The order will be changing constantly so doing too much will get confusing.

Also I'll probably not be able to start until tomorrow. Sorry!

I know it doesn't matter, but the other two will get to pass before we go to next card, correct?

Just don't want them to forget... like I would. whistle

No.

They don't pass at all.

Only 2 people get to act in each card.

Interesting. I thought every eligible faction got to do something. Guess I need to reread some rules.

Nope.

only 2 eligible actions really get to do anything.

As soon as 2 factions have acted, the card is over and we go to the next one.

If the second eligible player passes, they get a resource (or 3), and the next one gets an option to take a turn, or pass.
