Last night 3 of my buddies and I tried a test run on T.I. I got a few questions that hopefully may clear up some thing for us...
We are playing a 4 player game, and we have everything setup occording to the rule book.
1.) Strategy Phase - does each player select 2 strategy cards during this phase?
2.) Action Phase Order- Does each player get to choose which Action they want to take, or does the person starting first select the action and everyone complete that until everyone can pass.
Example: Player 1 has the speaker token, so he chooses to do a Strategic Action; once he has completed that action the person next (clockwise - player 2) does his Strategic Action, and so on until each player has complete his Strategic Action. Then it is back to player 1, where he then chooses Tactical Action, and ever player then completes theirs.
Is it Player 1 has the speaker token, he chooses to a Tactical Action - completes the steps. Then Player 2 chooses to do a Strategic Action, Player 3 - Transfer Action, Player 4 - Tactical action. Now player 1 can choose either Strategic Action or Tranfer Action? And then each other player completes what they can if not pass?
3.) During the Action Phase - Strategic Action:
a) Is the order determined by the numbers on the strategy card, or is it determined based on who has The Initiative Strategy card and then the flow of play is determined clockwise?
Example: Player 1 has The Initiative Strategy card, Player 2 (who is on the left - clockwise) has Technology Strategy, Player 3 has The Warfare Strategy, and Player 4 has The Diplomacy Strategy. What would be the correct order of play - clockwise of the initiative or the number based on the cards?
b) In a 4 player game each person has to grab 2 Strategy Cards... so does that mean each player can player can play one or play both?
Thanks for the questions... and I think I may have more once these are answered.
