Supplies can be delivered wherever you have room to hold 'em. Ships can be delivered to any med/large colonized island.

Minor nit: Since you might not get a large, medium, small on the dub oceans, the schedule of blockade opening needs to change to "Hunter first place", "Sage second place", etc, rather than "Hunter large" (there might not be any :-).

Mmm... I just came here from annoucements. Has Fandango announced an intention yet? Can someone deliberately win and say "We choose for no island to be opened"?

Indeed - we're talking about 24 hours of sinking goodness...all which leads to new islands being opened, which will lead to more sinking goodness.

Seems Garnet gets look over for yet another large island. Good work ringers.

Also a sinking blockade to decide and then a sinking blockade to take the uncolonized island. Sounds like this could be a real snoozer event.

If its a real snoozer of an event, One could imagine a flag camping with a sloop if nobody else bothers. Either way, I can also imagine there would be atleast one or 2 flags from each ocean there for the glub glub and glory, with the selection of the Island an added bonus.

Either way, I could also forsee a flag winning the thing, and then auctioning of the selection prize rights.....

Edit: Didn't read the rules carefully enough, it's specific sizes or smaller, not the specific sizes, which changes my reply a bit. I've tacked a new post on at the end with the updated response.



Well, the sizes of islands opening are specified, so I'd assume that selected islands are limited to the sizes remaining to open after other winners choose their island openings.

That'd also provide solid justification for first chosing first on the Doubloon oceans, as that'd be the only way to guarantee that you get to open the island you want to, barring it being the only island of it's size that qualifies, which means it'll be getting opened regardless. If it were just 3 islands, I'd say have third choose first, and so on. Since sizes are specified, and the list doesn't change with new selections, it needs to be the other way around so second and third risk not getting to open the island they want most, rather than first and second.

Could we get a blockade on Ice at noon on 9th to make it more than 24 hours? :p

If not, I'll do it on King's, but that would probably mean non-sinking.

Hail the queen of booches <3

Your opening schedule still has Hunter opening one of each instead of LOO. I guess it's safe to assume the first medium is the first outpost.

One does not need to have more than a passing knowledge of the history of Viridian and Hunter to see what could be. I assure you, I know more than you having not set foot on Hunter on a main in months.

Currently, only large choice on Viridian would be Cabo de Hornos. Unless I missed something somewhere, there are no other uninhabited large islands adjacent to currently inhabited islands.

Does that mean the winner would have to rely on 2nd or 3rd place to open an island adjacent to open up choices?

If that is the case I see no reason why anyone would want to take first.


The rules state that choices do not expand your options so if there is only one large island at 1st place there will still only be one large island choice at 3rd place.
Artemis says:
 
Only uncolonized islands directly adjacent to a currently colonized island are up for grabs, the set of available islands is the same for everyone , it does not expand after a choice has been made.
- The islands being chosen do not have to be as large as possible , we could open LMO, MMO, OOO, etc.

This means you win first place you get to choose either a large, medium or outpost to open. 2 place gets to choose from what is left or smaller than that.

Ok, since I misread the rules, and missed the bit about being able to choose smaller than the specified islands, I can see justification for a rules modification as follows:

Allow First place to reserve their choice until after second has chosen and so on.

That way, if the First place flag has a specific Large island they want, they can pick it. If they've got a specific other size of island they want, they can let the Second place flag choose and then make their choice, thereby opening the possibility that Second would choose their first-choice island and allowing them to open their second-choice island instead. Same thing with Second and Third, though in the unlikely event that both First and Second pass, First would get the option to choose or pass again before Second had to choose.

On the other hand, I can also see justification for leaving it the way the rules have it, as this method effectively increases the value of taking First if you're not interested in the Large islands available.

I'd like to see the rules amended so that the first place winner can choose any large island, even if it's not connected to an already open one.

Malach, I appreciate what you're trying to do, but that's just going to make things really confusing, which I'm trying to avoid. Nice and simple, first place gets first pick, etc.

The island opening schedule is approximate and assumes the largest possible islands will be chosen, if that doesn't hold we'll just fill in as seems best appropriate.

While we're on the topic of clarifications, I was wondering about this:

 
Can the winner pick a "no more island openings" option?

Will you be able to choose an island that is adjent to island that was already picked? For example, on Hunter, the first choice is Saiph and then one of the next ones is Ix Chel?

Nope, Jack. Selection is based on the current layout of colonised islands.
