While we're waiting for all this backroom stuff to resolve, can I get  a rundown on provincial forces?

I've got:

Gallia Cisalpina - 4 Militia / 10, No fleets allowed.
Sardinia et Corsica - 0 Militia / (too small), 1 Fleet / (too small).
Sicilia - 2 Militia / 10, 1 Fleet / (too small).

Both Hispanias: 0 Militia / 5, No fleets allowed.

JP can you correct / fill in the blanks?

My understanding is that most of the 1st edition scenarios were poorly balanced. I hope they learned their lesson and more vigorously playtested 2nd edition.

Oh wow. And I almost beat him at his own game 3 years ago at WBC. Almost. I was in the tournament and there were an odd number of players so he stepped in to play me. I had a good early run and then the card gods abandoned me.

We just played the boat scenario from the latest expansion, Horrific Journeys.  We didnít know it was a hidden traitor mission so that threw us for a bit of a loop.  Ended in failure for both sides due to the mission timing out (we were one turn away from escaping in a lifeboat).  Interesting scenario but itís was too easy for the traitor to win as they donít suffer any penalties for not implementing their nefarious plans.  They just have to escape alongside the rest of the players to win.  Makes it too difficult to figure out who the traitor is.

The last time I saw my best friend he came up here for a weekend visit a couple of weeks before moving to Cambodia. My wife and I played the 1st edition with him. I was the bad guy controller, DM, whatever it's called (no app), and they were the investigators. Tom was a bit frustrated because my wife kept solving the puzzles faster than he could.  :DD Last game I ever played with him.  :'(

I'm tempted to buy 2nd edition but so far there are too many other games demanding my money and time.

Slight updates:

1.) Discussions are happening in the backfield, invisible to the public. So the game hasn't stalled out (yet ;) ).

2.) In reply to an occasional question, yes I'm planning to do a video AAR, and I have started the first steps in its production. I don't have a schedule yet but roughly speaking I expect to act on this sooner instead of later, long before the game ends.

3.) In case I forgot to report it upthread -- because I think I did forget to report it! -- the other three Players who haven't signed onto the Contract yet, would potentially represent a -1 majority against any Proposal vote in the Contract if they agreed together against any particular point(s).

We finished one of the shorter scenarios this weekend.  She had a very good time.  It is a fun, spooky, intense cooperative game.  She plays some "girl games" on her Ipad that have puzzles.  The easy puzzles in Mansions were similar to what she played.  The hard puzzles in Mansions were far, far harder than what she was used to.

If you spouse likes murder mystery shows or puzzle solving girl games - this may be something you can enjoy together.  My wife is familiar with the Cthulhu mythos from reading, some TV (like Supernatural) and some audio dramas we listen to on long car trips.
