This thread is for the negotiation, threats, and unseemly begging that the players of Andean Abyss Vassal Game #3 will undertake in order to defeat all comers and emerge top of the Colombian pile.

I'm looking to improve on a rather horrendous losing margin of -21, despite being in what I imagined was a position of growing strength I actually came last.

The factions of Colombia have engaged in some musical chairs and are now arrayed thus:

The Factions

The Government:

Unfortunately the Glorious Leader of the Revolutionary Forces of Colombia is quite busy at work so if somebody else wants to set the deck and board go right ahead.

Good luck to all.

Set up and first action done, as AUC got the first card.

I've put it in the AA game 2 folder for now. Perhaps someone with greater 'puter skillz than I could start a new dropbox folder, because that's indistinguishable from magic as far as I'm concerned.

Ha!

It was Demobilitazion. AUC moved some of our Government friends troops, and put a couple of Guerillas in cities.

Op Millenium is up next.

It looks like a Propaganda card got left behind in the deck preparation window, that may be a problem...

So it did. I have no idea how that happened, as I created the deck exactly as I've done before, and exactly how it should be done.

Best start again then.

I'll do a new one now.

It wouldn't be a proper game unless we had to re-do the deck at least 4 times.

I think you need to redo it again, and keep redoing it until a Cartels event comes up first.

As we set out on this new adventure, I just want everyone to remember:

I'm from the government. I'm here to help.

Right now I'm going to help myself to some very generous foreign aid.

Government takes the event.

Cartels up next.

AUC take Terror and Assasinate, hitting FARC early, and letting the Cartels know they are around too.

El Comandante Shauneroo has decided that he's beholden to no one, poking all 3 other factions...a bold move, Comandante....

Cartels takes the event. FARC is up.

FARC rally and extort.

Large show of strength by FARC but it's more like firing AK47s into the air than actually developing any bases.

AUC up.

Newspaper, TV and radio ads trumpet: "COLUMBIA NEEDS HER SONS! COME JOIN THE ARMY AND NATIONAL POLICE!" A massive recruiting drive by the government sees a lot new troops and police flooding key cities. Increased police presence along with community outreach sees approval for the government grow in the important city of Cali.

Government Trains and Airlifts.

And in the grasslands, the ominous sounds of helicopter herald the arrival of new troops to pacify the recently terrorized countryside. Let the enemies of Columbia beware!

AUC is up next.

AUC take the event.

Sensing that the time may be right to make a Financial Killing rather than some political killings, AUC place their free guerilla and base into the mountain region of Cesar-La Guajira.

Our informant within the Government Treasury had better be right about those coffee prices...

Cartels Rallied and Cultivated. Government, pay no mind to those green cylinders, those are just junior middle-managers in training. We actually hate the communists as much as you do.

Government is first eligible on Coffee Prices, with Tres Esquinas on deck.

Love the banter in this game and hate to do this but...

It is COLOMBIA not ColUmbia.

Cheers,

Thanks for the correction. I keep worrying someone from Colombia will read this thread and be offended by our rather broad portrayal of a difficult period in their history. The least I/we can do is spell the name of the country correctly.
