DJ Teflon wrote:A possible solution = have the 6 radio stations as fixed starting positions that revert to neutral for 8 player games. Where do players start then? On 8 additional 'external' territories, maybe roads into town or something, that can all attack some territory or other? That would keep the lottery assassin once-a-week tribe happy and leave the 6 stations as the major feature for 6-player-or-less games. They could all be DeeJays ( ) - each with a house they can attack (as there are 8 buildings with a neutral 2-value). If they start with one neutral then it would realistically be round 2 before they can attack their house - meaning they probably dont get used much in 6-player-or-less games (but they are all the only starting point in 8-player long wait lottery games).
DJ Teflon wrote:Am I right in thinking this is the gameplay scenario:
6 Radio Stations & 2 Pirate Stations are the starting territories.
In 1-7 player games:
Both pirate stations are one start position. So, in 1 v 1, one player has 3 legit stations, the other has 2 stations and 2 pirate stations.

DJ Teflon wrote:Option 1
If the pirate stations are the least preferred stations then setting the normal stations as starting positions and the pirate stations as the only 2 'ordinary' terits (with everything else neutral) means that they would be neutral in 1-6 player games (as the xml cant share 2 terits between 3 or more). In a 7 or 8 player game, the normal radio stations would become 'normal' terits, so each player in a 7/8 player shoot-em-up would get 1 of the normal or pirate stations. I think (I could be wrong)! Still, option 2 is my preference as the antenna come into play.

Perhaps the DJs at the side could be faces, or records or some other kind of icon? It seems wierd that they have house icons as though they are a house attacking their house.
DJ Teflon wrote:Would players start with a DJ and house, or just a DJ? Just a DJ would be interesting (as it would realistically take 2 turns to attack in shoot-em-ups) and probably fairer with the houses at different proximinities to the sponsors and dishes. Plus,in a 6-or-less-player game it would render attacking from the DJs a less attractive option and keep the gameplay focus on the original idea.
