RE: Cosmic Encounter - PBP: Slower than dark
We send five ships from Hacker planets A and D to Warpish planet A to visit with them, despite the fact that no Warpish are even on it right now.

We wish to negotiate another deal. But hypothetically, if the Warpish have no remaining cards to negotiate with, we would greatly appreciate if they let us know beforehand and played a weak attack card since they don't actually have any ships to lose in this battle.

RE: Cosmic Encounter - PBP: Slower than dark
Four is the maximum ships, so you'll send only that many. (Also i am sending two from Warpish planet D and none from B because you would have 0 ships left on B, so you would be unable to return there).

I assume you are not inviting anyone.

Does the warpish invite anyone?

PLANNING PHASE.

Warpish has no encounter cards in his hand, in fact, no cards at all. He gets to draw 8 entire cards.

Now you may send in your encounter cards.

The Warpish played: Negotiate
The Hacker played: Morph

The Morph copies the Negotiate!

You now may attempt to make a deal.

We wish to trade a colony for a colony, naturally. We are also willing to make a fair trade of anywhere from 0 to 3 cards if the Warpish are up for that.

The pact is sealed.

Both sides, where do you land and with which ships?

Warpish, what card do you give? I assume fair trade also means that the Hackers will give a card too, so what card you give in return?

I am returning the remaining two ships to Hacker A and Hacker B.

Cards exchanged. Every single player is now at 3 planets. Victory at hand for someone. Will lady luck and/or sir strategy shine on them?

Will Fido return one of the discarded cards? Discarded cards are Morph and Negotiate.

Apologies for the deception friends, we needed to make sure that the fiendish dogs and misers would not try to interfere with our plans. Join us, and together we can rule the Warp and the Galaxy alike.

We offer to trade a colony for a colony.

And thus ends, Cosmic Dealcounter. Out of the 8 encounters, 6 were deals. A galaxy of negotiation remains. Winners are Hackers and Warpish. But how will the story continue? Only time will tell...

Thank you all for playing!

Not a bad comeback all things considered.

Sorry Pala and Pharma, I would have tried to joint with one of you if the cards hadn't just decided to send me and Anomaly to each other's doorstep for the THIRD TIME IN A ROW.

I know right?

It was a little annoying that I never received a single interrupt card, and so was basically powerless outside of my own turn, but what can you do?

(note: I played Miser with a critical misunderstanding of how many flares you can play, otherwise I wouldn't have left my 30 and 40 up for grabs and thus been forced to negotiate almost every play ;-;)

I think the only thing I would have have changed looking back was my original decision to back Anomaly instead of Pala in the first battle. I didn't realize that allies also picked up a free colony too.

Alas. Perhaps next time we can play on tabletop so the game won't take forever and i can clarify things in real time and/or in advance ; -;

And yeah this is one of the few games where going first is not an advantage at all.
