I am pretty sure, there will also be a line: "When you buy or gain this, +1 Action tokenď. This would allow some 'crazy villa magic' for all Workshop variants.

That line gives you a total of two tokens when you buy it (and then gain it as a result).

No it wouldn't, it says "or". This isn't code/logic talk where "or" means one or more. Certainly buy or gain is redundant, but it wouldn't grant two tokens as far as I could tell.

If I find out that that phrasing wouldnít give out two tokens then Iíll be starting my own ďWhy Iím quitting DominionĒ thread...

I do find Walterís extended family kind of (really) annoying at first, though only Marie stayed that way throughout the series, and I loathed any scene with her in it.

Among my favorite things about the show is how well-planned and interconnected it seems, as though the writers and showrunners had every single plot strand mapped out from the beginning with every element affecting everything else in the show. The one weird exception is the Marie shoplifting subplot that takes up way too much time early on and is never mentioned again and has no discernible effect on anything. Even the Schwartzes came back in a crucial way at the very end.

I came away feeling not like this was something great that just isn't my cup of tea, but that it was something overall bad that might appeal to a few people. Despite this, it's one of the most critically acclaimed TV shows out there, and honestly, I don't really get it.

I think the evidence then suggests that it is merely not your cup of tea, and not something overall bad that might appeal to a few people. It's definitely fine if it's not your cup of tea, but that's really all one person's opinion can establish.

Seriously, though, watch the full first season and see if you still hate it. It's still my favorite drama series of all time, and for me nothing else is even close.

Governor + Aqueduct

Aqueduct usually doesn't come into play that much, since who buys Silver and Gold these days?  But in a Governor mirror, Aqueduct can become an easy way to take a significant surprise VP lead, at the cost of gaining an early green card. 

Every time you use Governor to gain a Gold, it also distributes a Silver, potentially adding 2VP to Aqueduct with each Governor play (and more in games with 3+ players).  If you time it right (e.g. after your opponent used one or two Governors for Golds on their turn), you can get a nice VP payout of 10 or 12 VP by playing several Governors for Golds and then buying or remodeling a treasure into a green card to take the Aqueduct points.  Your Governors don't mind the extra Golds so much, and the early VP swing will make it harder for your mirroring opponent to catch up.  This synergy is improved even more when there are desirable Action-Victory cards available such as Mill or Nobles.

Just re-discovered this, and it's quite nice!

Possession looks fun!

Yeah but unfortunately it seems thereís no way of determining what happens if you play possession while possessing someone so itís bound to cause issues.

Now if only RGG would send free second edition Adventures to those who bought the first edition and are stuck with extra bendy cards.  :(

(This wasn't intended to be a criticism of RGG; I wouldn't actually expect them to do that. But it is annoying to play with those cards IRL).

The more bothersome thing for me has always been the different shade of blue on the background.

Iím a big Raptors fan, even when they make me cry against Lebron

Poor raptors.  They're actually one of my top teams as well.  But man they just don't show up in the playoffs.

The end of game 1 was Raps v LeBron in a nutshell. Itís like they believe in their heart of hearts that they canít beat him and get the yips even when they should have the better team.

I don't follow soccer much, but I do look forward to once again cheering on the good old U.S. of A. I'm sure that a cursory Google search would tell me that they aren't favored by the "experts" to come out on top, but I'll prefer to remain hopeful.

I had a game once where I got the cost of Villa down to 0, piledrove the Villas, and then used the $8 I'd thus generated to buy Pathfinding and put it on Villa.

Funnily enough, I did rather well in that game.

That is amazing

Yes! Iím a Celts fan specifically but I watch the entire league as well. I have also occasionally had to clear space on my phone when it has filled up with a backlog of NBA podcasts.

It was too bad you guys didn't get to see my man Hayward playing.  That injury was gnarly.

Yeah, I wrote off the whole season 5 minutes into the first game. I thought it was impressive how well they did without him, and then to see them with a good chance to win a playoff series without him or Kyrie is just ridiculous. I'm excited for next season if everyone is healthy. Tatum and Brown and even Rozier have been surprisingly awesome.

I don't watch NBA at all; but am always happy when I hear that the Celtics are doing well; so a quick Google search tells me that I'm happy! Cuzz, are you from Boston?

Iím from NE and lived in Boston for almost 10 years but have since moved to the Midwest.

Maybe we could just congratulate GendoIkari on his upcoming fatherhood instead of whatever the hell else is going on here.

Congrats, Gendo!

I'm a former semi-competitive magic player, and so I start by reasonable announcing:

"three, six, eight treasure, buy a province..."

and then because I want the winner to win by skill, not by forgetfulness I continue

"...5 provinces left"

I visibly count low piles too.

I try not to be obnoxious about it, and people don't seem to mind.

That's more or less the same thing I do, except I don't often Count piles. When I do, I announce the amount, though.

Huh, not sure Iíve ever seen Count pile. Could make sense with Obelisk I guess.

Shepherd + Tournament
Grab Followers, be happy about getting engine components instead of junk from it.

Okay but Shepherd/Tournament seems likely to lead to tough tactical decisions:

Hand is Shepherd, Estate, Province, Copper, Copper. Do you discard the Province or not?

Depends on the shuffle

Sauna/avanto is one that everybody skips a key factor of. They have an avanto but no sauna and then they can't play any more actions.
Really? My experience of online games with this pile is that they tend to end up in mirror matches where both players get at least two copies of each.

I mean...it's pretty clear this dude is trolling at this point, right?
Chase Adolphson is just very young.  Be nice, etc. etc.

arite, arite, sorry. thought maybe it was a Ken M type of situation

I dont think that the expansion would need to include all the necessary supporting pieces.  (another copy of Runes, Boons, etc etc).
Players would get to use the cards that match the expansions they already own - and then would be inspired to buy the missing expansions :)

I think this part is a non-starter. People won't want to buy an expansion with a bunch of cards they can't use.
