In the rule “Directions”, replace “being allocated to each Institution that Cycle” with “being allocated to each Institution and/or Player that Cycle”.

In the rule “Cycle Resolution”, after “but not how any Players specifically Directed their Resources.”, add a new paragraph:-

Then, combat is resolved. During a Cycle, each Player has a Defence score equal to the number of Marines they control who were not Directed anywhere during that Cycle (excluding any Marines gained during that Cycle). Each Player who had more Marines Directed at them by other Players during a Cycle than their Defence score for that Cycle is Overrun. When a Player is Overrun, their Credits and Marines are halved, rounding down.

Trying a second version of Send the Marines, which timed out at 5-5, including South’s suggestion that defence is automatic.

for Simpler and better. Personally, I think it would be good for marines sent at a person to also block their incoming marines, as if they were meeting half-way.

against still too powerful. Threats and counter threats are fine up to a point, but eventually the necessary analysis becomes so complex that it becomes merely luck of the draw who comes out ahead.

Is that consistent with conspicuous Gumption?
