Great game between Argus (me) vs Andy (opponent) yesterday. It Involved two things that were pretty fun.
First turn when andy puts down a Temüjin and names archives but still needs to install a bunch of stuff? That’s when you shove your shock(s) in archives and watch as she decides how much she wants her credits now. Good Times.
As the game developed, it turns out she was on the citadel power tap plan with a boatload of economy. (temu, kati, dailycasts, desperado, sec testing, power tap, and citadel). We are at a turning point in the game where she’s about to outpace me on money. I’m sitting on about 25 credits and she is at 18 or having just stolen an agenda on her last click out of R&D (2-2) letting the citadel trace fire. What she doesn’t know is that I have my man bryan stinson sitting in the remote masquerading as a prisec, so I spend the 19 credits or so like its nothing. Worried, that I have the kill combo in hand, she matches me to prevent the trace. This is just find and dandy since I rez brino stinson to hit hedge, restructure, restucture in archives for 39 credits. So at the end of my turn I’m sitting on 45 credits and she is at like 2. Say what you will about the man but Bri Bri Stinson is absolutely hysterical.
As it turns out, I can’t find agendas for ages and she has time to recover . I do have 2 prisecs in the remote though and finally install advance advance oaktown behind a double Veritas. She runs 3rd click with only one mongoose gets hit with 3 tags and 4 meat damage, but can’t clear all the tags in time. End up trashing citadel and double scorching her, so all’s well that ends well.
I think that’s likely to be my last hurrah with Argus for the foreseeable future, so it was good to go out with a bang. (heh) Aaron Marrón proved to be the straw that broke the camels back for this deck.
