Crusade Map-Space Hulk - week 11

Week 12 Summary

While the Purple Team have been focused on expanding their hold on the Space Hulk. The Red Team took full advantage and have fought their way into Purple Team‘s back lines, taking Emberbrook, Saltmarsh and Rouge’s Refuge, leaving Purple with a single town on the surface! The only Map buffs they will get going into Phase 4 will come from the Space Hulk!

Although there isn’t any buffs from controlling towns, the Red Team get full bragging rights for holding exactly half (8/16) of all towns on the map. It would have been 9 but someone nuked Ironridge.

Blue Team have expanded their control into both the Orange Team and Green Team‘s lands, cutting the Orange Team‘s territory in two. While also taking the Solaris Citadel off of them.

The Yellow Team also moved in on Orange, taking one of their hexes next to Bannerman’s Rest.

The Green Team pushed back the Reds, claiming the ruined monument of The First Settler. They also still control the last nuke (having fired the previous two) and have decided to sell it to the highest bidder in a blind auction. Which seems to have started a small bidding war, we will no doubt find out what happens on Thursday.

The Orange Team and Green Team have both been fought back to the point to qualify for the Desperate Holdout rule from the start of Phase 4. Which means it will be harder to take land off of them on the surface map.
