Okay. Please deploy as follows:

7 on Alabama
4 on Pennsylvania

Attack Pennsylvania to New York to Connecticut, do or die. Then attack Alabama to Tennessee to Arkansas to Oklahoma to Colorado, do or die. End turn.

Santorum is asked "Have you gotten the itch to get back into politics?"

Absolutely. I canít sit here and watch our country decline in stature as dramatically as it has in the last five years and not be concerned about the future of America. I just look at the overall culture of the country and see a lot of people who are fearful, donít believe that good times are coming, feel like there are people out there left behind. Thatís a very dangerous thing for a democracy.

In the same interview, he attacks Rand Paul on foreign policy, and says that he (Santorum) would've beaten Obama in 2012, had he been the nominee rather than Romney(!).


lol

Ah darn. I didn't break his Northeast bonus. Oh well. Tongue

I'm done. No re-fortification.

As of now, I'm inclined to say Paul. It will be a disaster.

You also control Iowa, meaning 2 extra battalions there as well.  Wink

I edited my post to reflect that so everything's in one place for ya. Thanks for catching that. Smiley

This game is now essentially down to luck, I think. Sound strategy from Hagrid.

I think the decisive factor now is the dice + how the card sets pan out. If my calculations are corrects Vosem might be able to hand in 2 sets at once next round, while Hagrid will hand in 1. But how many armies will those have? So many questions, so few answers, etc. Tongue

Before his last turn I was pretty sure Vosem had five and Tmth had two. So when Vosem cashed in his set, it brought him down to two. He took Tmth's two and earned another, bringing him up to five... so I'm pretty sure he only cashes in once. I hope. Tongue

All right. I control Arkansas, Wyoming, Iowa, and Indiana, so please put two armies on each. On top of that, Iím pretty sure I now have 26 battalions to place. Please deploy those 26 armies as follows:

6 (+2) on Arkansas
9 (+2) on Wyoming
11 on South Carolina
(+2) on Indiana
(+2) on Iowa

Attack Arkansas to Texas, do or die. If this attack fails, stop and await further orders.

Next, attack Wyoming to Colorado to New Mexico to Arizona to Utah to Nevada to California to Oregon to Washington to Idaho.

In the east, attack South Carolina to North Carolina to Virginia to Maryland to Delaware to Pennsylvania to New Jersey to New York to Connecticut, do or die.

Attack Indiana to Ohio, do or die.

Not sure I can say for sure that Iíll want to end my turn here, so please await further orders after you've done these rolls. We'll see how this goes.

Wow.

Sorry Franzl... I needed to go for the cards, or else I think Vosem would've been a shoe-in.

FF. And I still think pardoning Nixon was the right thing to do.
87  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: RISK Domination X: Round 5 (Hagrid) on: March 18, 2014, 02:33:21 am
Okay, great. I guess I'll move three from Delaware to Maryland and end it there.

I am incredibly torn on this issue.

...how so?

On the one hand, I support marriage equality and generally believe in the philosophy "live and let live." On the other, I feel like there's a lot of potential for abuse in group marriages.

I believe that means I get 18 armies. So here we go. Please deploy as follows:

1 on Oklahoma
4 on Maryland
13 on Tennessee

Attack Oklahoma to Arkansas, do or die. Attack Maryland to Delaware, do or die. If any of these fail, stop and await further orders. If not, proceed.

Attack Tennessee to Virginia to West Virginia to Kentucky to Indiana to Illinois to Missouri to Iowa to Nebraska to Wyoming, do or die. If I get that far, I want the maximum number of troops in Wyoming. Either way, stop and await further orders.

Whatever I do, itís going to be tough. Might as well see if I can make something from nothing!

Does obliterating two distinct regions with years of culture and accomplishments not qualify as "scribbling on the Risk board"...?

Well, nothing of the sort would be needed, assuming one hemisphere of the ideological spectrum wouldn't hole themselves up in two of the other regions for years on end, leading to persistent issues for the regional dynamic. Maybe one day, that hemisphere will champion ideas of its own that'll allow it win outside of its fiefdoms, instead of cowering safely in 40% of the country!

I know you're unfamiliar with this principle, but we actually don't tell our members to move somewhere based on political expediency.

Oh, I thought we were still talking about Risk. Because everyone knows the best strategy is North AmericaóSouth AmericaóAfrica.

Starting a land war in Asia would be a better comparison.

So it's just a big waste of time, then? Tongue

One tiny, obscure tidbit from a giant piece of legislation is hardly an example of significant disconnect between the Federalist Party and the People. I'd rather be in our position than yours, because the country basically just rejected your entire worldview.

That's a novel interpretation of these results, to say the least, and an extraordinary amount of weight to place on an Atlasian poll in any case. What happens in the Senate is far more important. Wake me up when your party begins to get substantive bills passed.

What I take from that is basically that TNF is the entire Labor Party (which I don't reject; it's a convenient interpretation for us, too). The thing is, his legislative victories don't reflect a systematic or institutional "win" for the Labor establishment; y'all just lucked out with an extremely productive member.

Unless you think stingray conservation and department renaming are pressing issues?

Well, it looks like the country just rejected a lot of Labor proposals.
