I have concluded one last deal, 2 of My Tank Factory Tanks for 2 of Blue's Oil. It is now Blue's trading phase.

After he's done, I'll re-up the map.

Trades so far(recap):
5 Green Food for 5 Red Planes
3 Green Food for 3 Yellow Tanks
2 Yellow Tanks for 2 Blue Oil.

Commodities that are in country and can therefore be traded:
Red has :11 Planes, 2 Tanks, 6 Oil, 6 Food
Green has: 9 Planes, 16 Tanks, 3 Food, 8 Oil
Yellow has: 2 Planes, 15 Tanks, 5 Food, 4 Oil
Blue has what yo can see on the last map.

Have at it, Blue!

All moves from Red's Plane Factory:
1 plane to Blue's Oil factory
1 plane to Yellow's oil factory
1 plane to yellow's inner R&D factory bordering the Yellow oil/Plane factories.
2 planes to yellow's farthest R&D factory bordering green's lands
1 plane to yellow's plane factory.

Red expends all of his Oil on an unprecedented attack on Yellow!

In the Yellow Oil Factory:
forgemeister rolls Red Plane Attacks Yellow Tank (3d6): [2 + 5 + 1] = 8
Kill! (a squeaker!)
In the "close R&D Facility:
forgemeister rolls Red Plane Attacks Yellow Tank (3d6): [4 + 6 + 1] = 11
Kill!
At the remote R&D Facility:
forgemeister rolls Red Plane Attacks Yellow Plane (3d6): [3 + 5 + 2] = 10 forgemeister rolls Red Plane Attacks Yellow Plane (3d6): [2 + 2 + 5] = double kill!

At the Blue Oil Factory:
forgemeister rolls Red Plane Attacks Blue Tank (3d6): [6 + 3 + 2] = 11
Kill and two auto-kills on Labor Units!

At the Blue R&D Facility:
forgemeister rolls Red Plane Attacks Blue Tank (3d6): [6 + 5 + 6] = 17 forgemeister rolls Red Plane Attacks Blue Tank (3d6): [6 + 4 + 4] = 14
Killed him twice!

Its doom for Yellow! New map:

Red also earns an additional 10 Labor Units at the start of next turn!

Its Green's move and attack... will he mop up what is left of Yellow?
:D

Okay.. I am interpreting a bit here, so this map may change... I got Green's turn...

Moving all 8 Planes

2 Move to Blue Factory (should make it on the diagonal)
2 Move to Yellow Food Production
2 Move to Yellow Labor Production
2 Move to the other Yellow Labor Production

That is all 8 planes and all 8 oil
and have interpreted them thusly: (new map)
Image

Another devastating blow to Yellow!
Green will also receive 5 extra Labor Units at the start of next turn for taking the Yellow Food Factory!

Let's see if Yellow can survive! (my turn...)

Tad- make sure I got your turn right (correct) - if not, I will make changes before my move/attack.

Green has confirmed that I posted his move correctly.

So here I go...

All Tanks are moving from my Tank factory.

2 Tanks move to retake the Yellow Oil Factory.
forgemeister rolls Yellow Tank Attacks Red Plane (2d6): [5 + 2] = 7
forgemeister rolls Yellow Tank Attacks Red Plane (2d6): [3 + 1] = 4
double Kill

2 Tanks move to retake the Yellow Plane Factory.
forgemeister rolls Yellow Tank Attacks Red Plane (2d6): [4 + 6] = 10 forgemeister rolls Yellow Tank Attacks Red Plane (2d6): [4 + 2] = 6
double Kill

2 Tanks move to take the Green Oil Factory.

2 Tanks move to take the Green Plane Factory.

New map:

That's my 4 Oil. and I am done. This will need a quick recap, I'm thinking...

Red still gets 10 additional Labor Units at the start of next turn for taking factories. As it currently stands, he'll also get 5 R&D commodities! He still can not trade (for) or produce tanks as he does not have a Red Tank Factory.

Green will still get 5 additional Labor Units for taking the Yellow Food Factory. As it currently stands, he'll also get 2 Labor Units for Med Facilities, and 2 R&D commodites. He can't trade (for) or produce either Planes or Oil as he does not have a Green Oil or Plane Factory.

Yellow will receive 20 Additional Labor Units for taking back his two factories, plust taking two enemy factories. He gts no R&D commodities or med facility bonuses. He can't trade for or produce Food as he has no Food Factory.

Whew! Blue, you're up :D

In all of the above cases/examples... IT IS possible for those countries to trade commodities that they can not trade for (I can trade my remaining Food for other stuff, I just can't receive Food - it would go to Green) so long as those commodities are still within the country. I can no trade my planes that are in the Red Plane Factory, for instance, as they are no longer in my country... but I could trade the Tanks that retook (is this a word?)my Oil factory.

Last word... You can choose commodities that you no longer have factories for... but if I were to TRADE for food, it would not go to a commodity R&D facility, it gets delivered to the factory, where, I am sure, Green would gratefully accept the fruits of my labor :D.

SO... If I want Food next turn, or Red wants Tanks, or Green wants Oil or Planes, we have to choose them as commodities from R&D facilities.

Hope that makes sense.

...and yes, currently, when it comes to food, I am boned. :D Thank goodness I still have 5...
Go get 'em (us) Blue! (Your move and attack).

A question has been put forth concerning movement, and I will explain this in the simplest terms I can so as to cover any related questions.

The phase we are in is the Move and Attack phase. It is so called for a very specific reason: Once you have attacked, anywhere, you can no longer move for that turn.

I hope that makes sense, but if it does not, HOLLER! :D

One heck of an aggressive turn! Blue burns all of his Oil in an all-out assault!

Blue captures the Red Food Factory! (5 additional Labor Units at the start of next turn)

Red attacks Blue's R&D facility!
forgemeister rolls Blue Plane Attacks Red Plane (3d6): [2 + 6 + 5] = 13
Kill

Red attack's Blue's other R&D facility (the one with the tank)
forgemeister rolls Blue Plane Attacks Red Tank (3d6): [1 + 3 + 4] = 8
Kill (barely)

Red moves to retake his Food Factory! (and does getting 5 more Labor Units to start next turn)
forgemeister rolls Blue Tank Attacks Yellow Plane (2d6): [2 + 5] = 7 forgemeister rolls Blue Tank Attacks Yellow Plane (2d6): [3 + 3] = 6
double kill

AND he moves to retake his nearby R&D Facility!
forgemeister rolls Blue Tank Attacks Red Plane (2d6): [2 + 3] = 5
Kill
forgemeister rolls Blue Tank Attacks Red Plane (2d6): [2 + 3] = 5
Kill

Holey smokes! New map:
Image

You'll note I took the liberty of having everyone do their "end-of-turn-eating"... Please let me know if you planned to starve some Labor Units instead of feeding everyone (and thus saving some food).

...and that ends the turn. Green will place first this coming turn, then Yellow, and so on.

Green will place 15 Labor Units + 5 Labor Units (for taking the Yellow Food Factory) + 2 for Medical Facilities for a total of 22 Labor Units. Green also receives 2 free commodities from R&D.

Yellow will then place 20 Labor Units + 20 Labor Units (40 units total) but has no R&D or med facilities

Blue will then place 19 Labor Units + 10 Labor Units (for taking back his food factory and taking Red's food factory) for a total of 29 Labor Units. He also has 3 R&D commodities to decalre.

Red will then place last: 29 Labor Units + 10 for taking two factories +1 for Medical Facilities for a total of 41 Labor Units. Red also has two R&D commodities to declare.

Green - Place your Labor Units!
Report to follow...:D

In a month of unprecedented violence, factories all over the world, and Research and development and hospital facilities were attacked by the various nations of the world.

"Its Armegeddon," spoke a representative of the Yellows," and we're going to survive it!"

"Our people have been pushed around long enough," commented Blue, "and we're pushing back!"

"Blue's deleterious use of 'free trade' channels to enslave world populations had to be stopped," Red asserted," and we're the ones who will save the world from this kind of terrorism."

"We are simply trying to re-organize world economies to benefit the poor," Green was heard to attest, "its for their own good!"

This reporter is merely bewildered at the violence and can only hope that this will all end soon... and that peace will reign once again.

I am Hugh Betcha, reporting.
