By popular demand, we are playing this again!

COIN is an asymmetric strategy game with open information. Every faction has some small (and not-so-small) differences in how they play. Not only will you have to know what you can do, you'll have to keep in mind what can be done to you.

The Rules: http://www.gmtgames.com/fallingsky/Fall ... -Final.pdf
Playbook/Tutorial/Strategy Tips: http://www.gmtgames.com/fallingsky/Fall ... _Final.pdf

COIN is a game for four players, one playing each faction, which are:

Roman Republic: Hail Caesar! He has decided to go on a little Gallic campaign, taking several of his legions with him. Rome plays the most differently from the Gallic factions. While the Roman legions are a powerhouse on the battlefield, the Senate is not as enthused about this whole thing as Caesar is, and they must be kept happy or they might decide to stop giving him those nice soldiers.
Arverni Confederation: Led by the ambitious Vercingetorix, the Arverni cannot abide Rome coming in and bossing the place around. He must unite the Celts to drive Rome away! The Arverni can amass greater numbers than any of the other Gallic factions, and move them at a speed matched only by Rome. Finally, he can bring devastation to any region Caesar has his greedy eyes on.
Aedui Confederation: The closest thing Rome has to an ally in the region. Or at least a problem they don't want to have on top of the Arverni. And heck, the Aedui's goals aren't that far away from Rome's. Working together can be profitable for both factions. On one hand, they are militarily the weakest, and have no leader piece. On the other, they are the one player faction that can't lose theirs.
Belgic Tribes: What's that? A big war? Heck yeah Ambiorix wants in on this! Let's make with some murder! Oh and I guess you can help out the Arverni while you're at it. Don't want Rome subduing everything and making things boring. With Ambiorix leading the charge, your Warbands are twice the soldiers that any other Gauls are, and can even go toe-to-toe with Rome's Legions.
Germanic Tribes: The Germans are NPC-only. They were led by Ariovistus. Then he died. Like any good NPC, they tend to interfere with everyone's well-laid plans. And also like a good NPC, they can sometimes be pointed at people you don't like.

Sharkmafia, Toastghost, and MetalSonic are playing, and the rest of you can read along.

We will need to pick a scenario for this game, though.
The Great Revolt: 45 events with 3 Winters. The exact same setup as last game, except if the Belgae are controlled by a player, they will have Ambiorix instead of his Successor.
Reconquest of Gaul: 60 events with 4 Winters.
Pax Gallica?: 70 events with 5 Winters.

And you can still pretend to be a talking horse general.

If someone in the audience wants to jump in, please say so! There's room for one more. If you catch this game part way in, that's fine, you can replace the NPC.

They will place as many Allies as possible, first in Suebi, then others in Germania, then elsewhere. Then they place as many Warbands as possible (including where Allies were just placed, and in Germania even if no Germanic Allies are there). They choose among equal possible locations randomly.
March (3.3.2, 3.4.2)
Purpose: Move and hide Germanic forces.
Location: Regions with Germanic Warbands.
Cost: None
Procedure: Each Region, flip Germanic Warbands to Hidden (or remove Scouted). Then Germanic Warbands move from there into adjacent Regions.
They march from Regions with more Germans than are needed to maintain Control. They move as many Warbands as possible without losing Control, their largest groups first.

⏵Select non-German Faction present to Defend.
⏵German Warbands cause ½ Loss each. Defender removes 1 piece per Loss, half that if Citadel or Fort (round total down). Remove Allies, Citadel, Fort last.
If Caesar is Defending, roll a die: if 4-6, each Loss on a Legion, Leader, or Fort removes it only on a die roll of 1-3; also (if 4-6), Romans Counterattack—remove 1 German piece for Caesar, 1 per surviving Legion, and ½ per surviving Auxilia (round down). Remove Warbands then Tribes last.
⏵All surviving Hidden participants to Revealed.
They will battle wherever they can that will inflict an enemy Loss, targeting players before NPCs, otherwise at random. Battles will be performed in random order.

Winter Card (6.0)
Last Event Card before Winter: Frost—no March (2.3.8, 3.2.2, 3.3.2)

Victory? If any Faction has met its victory condition (7.2) or if it is the final Winter (2.4.1), the game ends; determine Victory (7.3). If not, continue.
Germans: Germanic Forces Rally, then March, then Raid, then Battle.
Quarters: Factions may transfer Resources during this phase.
⏵Germanic Warbands in Devastated Regions without German Ally move to a random Germania Region.
⏵Belgae, then Aedui, then Arverni may move Warbands and Leaders to adjacent, un-Devastated Regions that they—or another faction that agrees—Control; then roll a die for each Warband that they have in Devastated Regions without their own Ally or Citadel, and remove it on a roll of 1-3.
⏵Romans may move Legions, Auxilia, and Leader to adjacent, un-Devastated Regions with Roman or an agreeing Faction's Control; then they may move Legions/Auxilia in Supply Lines (3.2.1)—then Leader from any Region—to Provincia; for each Legion and Auxilia outside Provincia, they must either:
-Except for 1 piece with each Roman Ally and Fort, pay to keep it in place—1 Resource if a Region with Roman Ally, 2 Resources if not, or twice that amount (2 or 4 Resources total) if Devastated.
-Or, roll a die and remove the piece on a 1-3 (Legion to Fallen).
Harvest: Each Faction adds Resources. Factions may transfer Resources during this phase.
⏵Romans—Add Roman Resources equal to current Roman Victory score (Subdued + Dispersed + Allies).
⏵All Gauls—Add Gallic Resources equal to 2 times the number of each Faction's Allied Tribes and Citadels.
⏵Aedui River Tolls—Add a further +4 Aedui Resources (always).
Senate:
⏵Senate Shift?—If the current Roman Victory score is below 10, shift Roman Senate marker 1 row up (toward Uproar); if 10 to 12, shift to Intrigue; if exceeds 12, shift 1 row down (toward Adulation). EXCEPTION: Do not shift down (including to Intrigue from Uproar) if any Fallen Legions. A shift off either end instead flips the marker to Firm; a shift from Firm instead flips the marker to normal.
⏵Legions—One half (rounded down) Fallen Legions remain in the box, the rest go onto the Legions track. Then place any Legions from the Legions track at or above the Roman Senate marker into Provincia.
⏵Auxilia—If the Roman Leader is in Provincia, place 3 Available Auxilia into Provincia if the Senate is in Uproar, 4 if Intrigue, 5 if Adulation.
Spring: Factions place any Successor Leaders from Available onto the map with their piece or Home Region "Rally" or "Recruit" symbol. Move all remaining Fallen Legions onto Legions track. Remove all Devastated and Dispersed-Gathering markers; then flip Dispersed Tribe markers to Dispersed-Gathering. Remove all Scouted markers; then flip all Warbands and Auxilia to Hidden. All Factions to Eligible. Play next card.

Victory (7.0)
Romans: Subdued plus Dispersed plus Roman Allied Tribes exceeds 15.
Arverni: Off-map Legions exceed 6 and Arverni Allied Tribes and Citadels exceeds 8.
Aedui: Aedui Allied Tribes and Citadels exceeds each other Faction's (Gallic, Roman, Germanic).
Belgae: Belgic Control (not Dispersed or Suebi) plus Belgic Allied Tribes and Citadels exceeds 15.
Upon final Winter: Closest to goal wins (7.3).

Sequence of play
First Eligible: Command only → Second Eligible: Limited Command*
First Eligible: Command & Special Ability → Second Eligible: Event or Limited Command*
First Eligible: Event → Second Eligible: Command & Special Ability
Pass: Gallic +1 or Roman +2 Resources; next Eligible becomes new first or second Eligible

*Non-players receive full Command & Special Ability, not Limited Command (8.1.2)

Reminders
A Supply Line (for Roman Recruit and Build, Aedui Trade, and Roman Quarters Phase in Winter) is when there is a line of provinces connected to Cisalpina, Controlled either by yourself, nobody, or a Faction that agrees.
If you want an agreement at the start of an action and do not get it, you may do something else. Agreements are binding for the duration of the action (or Quarters Phase).
While executing an Event or Command, you may remove any of your pieces from the map, or downgrade a Citadel to an Allied Tribe. (Rome's removed Legions go to the Legions track.)
Any effect that would Hide a Scouted Warband removes Scouted, but keeps it Revealed.
You may March without moving your pieces to Hide them.
Hidden Auxilia or Warbands help guard against Ambush and may cause Losses for Roman or Vercingetorix Marching, as well as hamper Roman Seize.
A Devastated region cannot be Recruited/Rallied in, doubles Command costs, stops March, Roman Seizure, and some Raiding, and hinders Quartering during Winter.
An Ally cannot be placed on a Dispersed Tribe.
Resources may be traded to another player during the execution of either's Command, Special Ability, or Event, to a limit of 4 per execution. They may also be transferred (in any amount) during the Quarters and Harvest phases of Winter.
A Special Ability can be performed before, at one time during, or after a Command. (E.g. Averni Marching with Vercingetorix can March one space, Devastate several spaces including his own, then March to the second space.)

62 Cards Remaining
Current Event
Balearic Slingers
Ro Be Ar Ae
CAPABILITY

Sharp skirmishers: Romans choose 1 Region per enemy Battle Command. Auxilia there first inflict ½ Loss each on attacker. Then resolve Battle.


OR

Reliance on foreign contingents: Recruit only where Supply Line, paying 2 Resources per Region.

Tip: Any Ambush counts as a Battle command. The Loss can be inflicted even if the Battle is between two other Factions.
Next Event
Aduatuca
Be Ro Ae Ar

P. Sextius Baculus—Heroic Roman defense: Remove 9 Belgic and/or Germanic Warbands from a Region with a Fort.

OR

Sugambri strike unprepared fort: March Germans to 1 Region with a Fort. They Ambush Romans there, 1 Loss per 2 Warbands.

Tip: The March is from adjacent Region(s). The Ambush is possible despite any Hidden pieces. The Fort does not halve losses.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/39ahrb9j9tatb ... 1.jpg?dl=0

This game's deck setup: 16 events, one of the final 6 is Winter. Repeated three more times. The "Cards Remaining" counter doesn't include the current or next event.

So the first Winter will appear somewhere between 53 and 48, the second between 37 and 32, the third between 21 and 16, and the final between 5 and 0. You might want to write that down.

There was some confusion over the nitty gritty of battle, so let me lay out how it works.

Losses
When someone inflicts Losses, here is how:
Each Warband and Auxilia inflicts half a Loss.
Each Legion and Leader inflicts a whole Loss.
If Caesar is in the Region and he belongs to the Attacker (i.e. the Faction that initiated the Battle), then his Legions inflicts 2 Losses each instead.
If Ambiorix is in the Region and he's the Attacker, then his Warbands inflict a whole Loss instead.
If the Defender (i.e. the Faction that the Attacker chose to Battle) has a Fort, a Citadel, or is Retreating, the number is cut in half.
The grand total is rounded down.

When someone takes Losses, here's what they do:
One at a time, the Loss-taker decides which piece to take each Loss, with a restriction:
If the Loss-taker is the Defender and they are Retreating, then Allied Tribes, Forts, and Citadels must be chosen first.
Otherwise, Allied Tribes, Forts, and Citadels must be chosen last.
If a Warband, Auxilia, or Ally is chosen, the piece dies.
If a Leader, Legion, Fort, or Citadel is chosen, the piece has a 50% chance of death. If it survives, it still counts as taking the Loss. You may assign multiple Losses to the same piece for as long as its luck holds out.

The Battle
The Attacker first chooses a Faction to Defend.
The Defender gets to choose whether they will Retreat or not (provided they have mobile pieces). They may Retreat to a Region Controlled by themselves or a Faction that agrees to take them (but not No Control).

If they Retreat
The Attacker inflicts Losses on the Defender (but only half, remember).
If the Attacker is Rome and the Defender is a Gaul (i.e. Arverni, Aedui, or Belgae), the Defender may keep any Hidden Warbands and/or their Leader in the Region.
Otherwise (or if the Defender decides not to), the Retreating pieces move to one adjacent Region and the Battle ends.
If there are no legal spaces to Retreat to, the pieces are killed instead.

If they don't Retreat
The Attacker inflicts Losses on the Defender (halved if the Defender has a Citadel or Fort).
Any surviving Defenders Counterattack, inflicting Losses on the Attacker (but no Leader doubling or Citadel/Fort halving).
All surviving Auxilia and Warbands flip to Revealed and the Battle ends.

Ambush
If the Attacker is German or used Ambush, a few things change:
The Defender cannot Retreat.
Leaders, Legions, Forts, and Citadels do not roll to survive.
No Counterattack happens.
However, if Caesar was with the Defenders, he has a 50% chance (33% vs the Belgae) of canceling out those last two parts (so everything except the 'no Retreat' line).


The short version: It takes 2 Warbands/Auxilia, 1 Legion, or the Leader to kill each piece. Double if they have a Fort/Citadel or you think they're going to Retreat. Caesar doubles the power of Legions and Ambiorix doubles the power of Warbands, but only if they start the fight. Bring extra if you want to try to take down a Leader, Legion, Fort or Citadel. Ambush is good and you should use it whenever you can.

In Nervii, the sharp skirmishers take out a Warband, then Ambiorix and the remaining three kill both Auxilia (because the Fort halved Losses).
In Morini, the attack kills both the Auxilia and the Legion.
In Remi, the attack kills the Auxilia, but Belgae doesn't have the firepower to take out the Allied Tribe.

I'm just going to go on the assumption Rome wants me to prioritize Auxilia->Legions->Leader when it comes to Losses. If you have something else in mind, lemme know. Ditto Warbands before Leader for the Gauls.

The ambush kills two Auxilia, but the Legion and Fort remain.

e: The skirmishers would have killed one of the eight Germans, so the last seven can only kill one Auxilia.

Okay, here's what I do:
##March
Caesar goes with 3 legions and 4 Auxilia through Sequani towards Treveri
He leaves two auxilia in sequani, rest goes to Treveri.
The two legions from nervii go to Remi.
Then:
##build
A fort in Sequani and A fort in Remi.

OR

Rival requests legions for the East: If the Legions track has 4 or fewer Legions, Romans remove 2 Legions to the Legions track.

Tip: Either way, only Legions on the track are used/counted. The shift to Adulation can occur despite any Fallen Legions.
The Aedui ##Rally, placing two Warbands in Mandubii, and one each in Bituriges and Aedui. They then ask to ##Trade with Rome because their little movement into Sequani cut off their supply line and Resources would be nice. Unfortunately the AI isn't smart enough to comprehend the prospect of offering anything in return.

Rome accepts, so the Aedui become 8 Resources richer.
