Here's where we can organize and communicate for our game.

We'll be following the AH advanced rules except for the tie-breaking system. High roll on a dice will determine any tied influence.

The biggest difference is we can't exactly announce influence changes whenever we feel like. So between phases where it's relevant we'll have open influence changes. This is where you use your google document to make changes. Once everyone has checked in as being done with influence changes then we'll move onto the phase where no influence changes can be made. You'll have to be on your toes and jump in if you want to use one of your cards.

I kinda GM the game so I'll keep things moving. Let us know if you'll be gone for awhile so we don't wonder.

Here's the google document we'll be sharing to see results: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ns5BOFjHYhlgdnEAFXCg...

You each should have your own google sheet for your faction.

Questions?

I have our game setup as:

Red Army: Abiezer Coppe
Stalinists: Mark (me)
Evolutionists: Luis A. Fernandez
Expansionists: Andras Nemeth

We're currently just doing setup now. When it's your turn load the .vsav file in dropbox into vassal and pick your faction. Then click on the faction name and drag your assigned influence to the politician of your choice (except not on politician A). Then draw your 3 cards. After you're done save the file and let us know you're done. You can do that here or if you make a comment on the file in dropbox we should all be notified of that. Make sure then you copy the influence you assigned on vassal to your google sheet for your faction.

The setup order will be, Abiezer, Luis then Andras.

Looks like we're holding for a bit. One of our players isn't able to start yet. If you want to do your setup first Luis go right ahead.

yes, load the latest .vsav file in our Kremlin dropbox. Assign your influence and then draw your cards. Save it again but change stalinists to your factions name. Also match what you assigned in vassal to your google doc. Then post here when you're done.

excellent. Now we just need one more player unless Abiezer can get his technical issues resolved.

Okay it looks like we're up and going.

Here's our factions:

Mark J- Stalinists
Abiezer- Red Army
Luis- Evolutionists
Andras- expansionists

-----------------------------------------

Here's our google sheet we'll be using to see who's declared influence

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ns5BOFjHYhlgdnEAFXCg...

You'll see on your own google sheet in column B, row 7 there is a new declaration button. Click on the little triangle and declare whether you're still declaring influence for the particular phase or if you're done. Once we have everyone saying they are done declaring then we can move on with that phase.

--------------------------------------------

We're currently at the Purge phase and awaiting to see who will declare on politicians. I've already started with 1 on our KGB Head.

You can load the latest log file on vassal to see how the cure phase went. It's nothing to see though as the only thing that happened was the Party Chief aged one.

What we need to get used to doing is going to our google sheet and selecting whether you're declaring or done declaring.

That way we know when we can move on to the current phase.

Abiezer is the only one currently done declaring. I declared 1 on politician X and am not done because I don't know if the other two will counter that or not.

Also, if you haven't already, make sure your google sheet matches the influence you assigned over on vassal. I know it's a bit to keep track of but once we get the pattern down I think it'll work fine.

I went ahead and did the Purge phase. I think I gave enough time for people to respond. See the vassal file to check-out the results. We're back to declaring influence prior to the spy investigation.

Is everyone here and on board, playing? Each one of you did respond to my private messages so I'm hoping to see activity from everyone here and on the google sheets so I know we're all really going.

How do I load and read the logfile?

(I'm currently seeing no changes. Did you pass?)

It's ok, got it! (Fast forward for other people who've not previously used Vassal)
