Wesley's STCCG card of the day #155

Hi, folks,

so some people seem to be REALLY addicted if I start getting "What's up" mails after three days. Let's hope the sender hasn't already gone mad for lack of COTD's.

And there was another guy who made a short and rather impolite request for more Romulan cards. I won't call names here, and his mail has already fallen prey to the big rm, but people like him should remember that nobody pays me for this. Next person to bug me this way will be forcefully brought to review 155 SPELLFIRE cards.

So, here's today's ish:


Dilemma, either, uncommon AU.
Subtract X from your total score, where X = the number of personnel in this crew or Away Team.
"The Parallax Poet's cosmic lesson for Alexander was, 'Every moment requires a purpose. Every purpose requires a plan. The Higher... The Fewer."

At first glace, this does not look that great. Killing some 5 or 8 points off your opponent's score is not that big a deal, but let's consider this chart:

Points per Mission      # of Missions
60                      1
55                      1
50                      1
45                      3
40                      7
35                      23
30                      18
25                      3
20                      1
15                      1

Hmm. Most probable three-mission victories? 35-35-35 = 105. 30-35-35 = 100. 40-35-35 = 110. 40-35-30 = 105. 40-30-30 = 100. Add the occasional 5 points from some Dilemma and you get a score between 105 and 120 pts. Decrease this by 3 x 8 (assuming you seed lots of these) or just by 2 x 8 (assuming you just used some of them) and you're below 100 requiring your opponent to do a fourth mission thus gaining quite some time.

Even better: Don't just stack six of these and seed every mission with it, but be satisfied with two you strategically place under the 35'ers. Remember that 3 x 35 = 105 but 3 x 30 = 90 !

Convinced ? Good. Want to buy some at $10 apiece :-) ?
