DISCLAIMER: I didn't cross-check this specific scenario with a turn (although I know the general concept holds) so I might be a bit off about the intricacies of turn order.
So ChrisCMU explained it best in an earlier thread I'm too lazy to dig up- you're basically creating a new "bucket" each time you use a Priority or Delay card- Priority card bucket just takes your first move from the Standard Bucket (+ flips/rotates natural turn order in the Standard Bucket), while Delay card takes all moves that would've been after the card. If you use a Delay card, you're creating a bucket of moves that are going to take turns after everything in the standard bucket (not delayed) is exhausted. If you use two, then you just created two buckets.
So say we have this scenario, with Player A having natural first order:
- plays Order Priority, creating Priority Bucket 1 and moving Player A - Move 1 into it (Player B - Move 1 is now the first move in the Standard Bucket)
- makes 3 moves (all except first go in the Standard Bucket)
- plays Order Delay, creating Delay Bucket 1 and shifting all remaining Player A moves into it
- has 2 small delay moves (Delay Bucket 1)
- has one real move (Delay Bucket 1)
- plays another Delay, creating Delay Bucket 2 and shifting all remaining Player A moves into it
- has a move (Delay Bucket 2)
- plays Delay, co-creating Delay Bucket 1 and shifting all Player B moves into it
- plays Delay, co-creating Delay Bucket 2 and shifting all Player B moves into it
- makes 6 moves (all of which go in Delay Bucket 2)
Here's the order everything will be executed in:
[Priority Bucket 1 - created by Player A's Priority Card]
Player A - Move 1
Player A - Move 2
Player A - Move 3
[Delay Bucket 1- created by Player A and Player B's 1st Delays]
Player A - Move 4
Player A - Move 5
Player A - Move 6
[Delay Bucket 2 - created by Player A and Player B's 2nd Delays]
Player B - Move 1
Player A - Move 7
Player B - Move 2
Player B - Move 3
Player B - Move 4
Player B - Move 5
Player B - Move 6
(Order Priority also flips natural turn order in the Standard Bucket each time it's played- so if B didn't play those delays, their first move would be first in the Standard Bucket).
So makes no difference to use it in 1st 2nd or 10th order if the other plays one too ?
That's essentially the case- if you have 8 orders in the middle, that's just going to make your move go later within the Delay Bucket- which is only useful if your opponent also plays a Delay. I always move my Delay card to right after the last urgent move, just in case my opponent plays a Delay too.
I've only really ever had
to pull a double Delay once, in a game against MotD. It's rarely ever necessary, unless both you and your opponent absolutely have to delay a move and you just want that increased guarantee that you'll actually go last.
