Turn 3 Klintanistan

First some game news. From this moment on I will be processing turns in the order they arrive.

This means several things. Firstly the international arms market does have a very finite level of resources. And they will be dealt with on a first come first served manner.

Secondly attacks (should there be any ) will also be dealt with in this order, so if you plan any hostile actions. Say for example you want to blow up another players assests perhaps a mine. If that player has already had his turn processed they will still get the money from the territory. This also applies to military attacks so if you want to attack an enemy BEFORE they attack you the turn reaching me first will strike first.


And it is a "big but and I can not lie!"
Yes this was a real tank of the period!
And yes it is on a two wheeled trailer.

If you want to spy on another player you will get MORE information if the turn was later  than the person you want to spy on. As I will have not written their turn when I process yours if their turn comes in after your turn.

So from now on it is up to the players to try to balance and second guess what other players might, or might not do!

  • I hope this makes it easier for me.
  • makes each player plan their turns a little more as the time element is now crucial. As players determine if they want international aid more than information about an opponent.
Rumours and Gossip.

  • The GIMP is the saviour of the nation.
  • Secret Police are watching your leader.

  • There is not and never has been any spies. They are just the 5th column
  • Some countries really want to buy more aircraft but no one is selling any.
  • America has allied with a country. Don't mess with the Yanks.
  • Maulisia is a hell hole do not go their they are likely to eat dodos or so I have heard.
  • Canukistan is concentrating on building schools in preference to making an better army.
  • The worm is slowly turning.
  • At least 2 countries are close to a revolt by the.... Gulp ssshh don't say any more the secret police are everywhere.

  1. sounds like plan. cheers, another top week

    1. Thank you Martin. My secret hope is that I can get some turns done and out the way each week before the deadline.

    2. Not so wise really, I should have thought of it before.

  2. Thanks Clint - I like the tweak in the rules

    1. Thanks Miles. The tweak may work and it may not, but it does give players one extra thing to think about.

  3. Nice twist to the rules.
    Come the Winter months, those of us with limited cash (due to seasonal crops) may be only able to afford 3 actions a turn. So this should also help to keep the work down for you.

    1. Thank you Roy, some players are wealthier than others and I do anticipate the less wealthy countries cutting back on some things.

  4. Good rule tweaks, Clint. As winter draws in I'm feeling all rosy and warm. Must be the porridge oats we eat. That and throwing the odd peasant on the fire!

    1. Thank you Bryan. I am sure for any rules tweak some will approve and others not. At the moment though it does work for me.

  5. I recognise some of those lies... or do I ...

    Cheers Clint .. new processing rules give an interesting twist .. good fun!

    1. Thanks Dave. I would guess that all players will recognise something or somethings. But which ones are real and which are false. When I woke up this morning not even I could remember!

  6. Well, that's all pretty vague. And you call yourself a news service :-) ...

    1. Thanks C6. It is only vague if it does not concern you! Until there is some hostile action I cannot give much away. And No I am not a news service, just "Rumour control".

    2. You're basically Clinty Mail then? :D

  7. Thanks for the clarification re processing. Now, back to the horse racing...

    1. Thanks Millsy. Yes the Millsy Cup is a fine event attracting runners and riders from all nearby lands.

  8. Are you the General Secretary of UMBIER?

    If you are then Centralandesh will find you and we will give you a rather stern telling off! Telling lies about us, indeed.

    And the same goes to the foreign chaps influencing our banditry! We are quite capable of robbing from each other in Centralandesh ... We don't need any instruction on how to suck eggs from anyone!


    1. Thank you Roy, I think! I Fail to recall who is te general secretary of Umbier, All I know is it was not me . As for everything else, who knows.

    1. Thank you Fran. If you knew the half of it!
