I have given it a couple of tries on Tabletop Simulator, solo but with multiple spirits, to get a feel for the game. Once I actually figured out the rules, it's still a long game (playing solo, about 2h per spirit/board, depending on their complexity and interplay). Best I can give to speed things up is to only plan your fast powers, and avoid overthinking slow powers : too many options to work through otherwise, given fear cards / events / explore actions can make it hard to predict what the board will look like by then.

I am really enjoying it too. Ep 6 in particular was something else.

Upvoted the original post just for the sheer audacity of the "copper strategist" phrase. ClouduHieh, if that's the way you enjoy playing the game, then all the more fun to you!

I struggle to see why Magnate costs 5$, when it's rarely better than Smithy, and often worse. I'll be curious to see what the consensus on the card is after people have had time to play with it.

I get what you mean. I did need a walkthrough for a couple of puzzles for the reason you stated. In all the cases, I basically had the right idea, but implementation was slightly off, and waiting 10 mins to try again was too much to ask for me. But I felt that was only a problem for the final hour of the game or so. Before then, you can just go explore elsewhere during those 10 minutes, then try again.
I also found the freedom to explore anywhere pretty well realized, not overwhelming: no matter where you go, there is stuff to uncover. There is no *wrong* choice. Plus, you’re expected to visit most places multiple times as you get “hints” for how everything works, so it’s fine to miss stuff the first time around. The hollow planet is by far the densest, so I could understand feeling overwhelmed if you start the game there and try to 100% it before moving on to the next, it gives you the wrong expectation about how “big” everything else is going to be.

I feel like splitting between just Support (draw/actions/sifters), deck building (trashers/gainers), payload (coins/+VP/attacks) would be a better split. Some cards would be straddling categories, but that's what orange is for. Not saying these three are the only way to split it (e.g. is Duchy payload? I would argue it isn't, it's a stop card. It doesn't do anything for you once it's in your deck), but your distinctions were too narrow / numerous.

Even then, it can still be redundant depending on the other categories in the round. If you put cards in, and you find out it gives +3 cards, you don't learn anything from also figuring out it's a Support card.

Treasure Trove

I think "purpose" is too vague a category, unless you list all possible categories ahead of time.

That was the card!

I didn't want to change the second category into Actions/Villagers/Plays because it would have heavily implied it was a command-like card, of which there aren't that many. And Cards/Horses was arguable too, since the card pulled by Ghost never actually reaches your hand. My bad on the fourth category though, I copy-pasted it and didn't notice it included "discard" until fairly late.

I should also remind about this:

Kind of an odd one for at least one of the categories, but I don't want to edit them to not give it away too much. Hopefully you agree with my calls after the fact?

In particular, I've been marking one category based on a common interpretation of a "mechanic", but didn't want to add a keyword to the relevant category because it would almost fully give away the card. If you need an extra hint, I can say what category that is. You're honestly pretty close to figuring it out.

Soooo... a question that has been rattling in my brain since you announced Guilds wouldn't be the last expansion:

Personally, I would be disappointed if the 15th box is not codenamed D:XV.

Hmmm I'll lead then:

Cost; Actions/Villagers; Buys/Gains; Cards/Horses; Trash/Discard/Exile;

It's orange for actions for the same reason ratcatcher is orange for actions. I'm assuming courtier is doing everything, since it can always do one of the things it can do. It would probably be orange if the correct number of Buy/Gains is 2, since it can't always give a buy and gain a Gold.

Aaah ok that makes sense. Thanks!
