The configuration for selecting backgrounds ('Preferred Background') should show you a preview of what the background is. (You select by an enumeration (that isn't explicitly exposed).) The only way to find out seems to be to start a game.  Also, an option to randomize would be nice.

If you type /bg # then you can see each of the backgrounds

It's ok heron.  We can go public about our via email flirtations.  Theory won't ban me for soliciting myself to another forum user.  He's already forgiven me so many other things I know it won't happen.

It would be cool if the log said "Awaclus trashes Dame Molly" instead of "Awaclus trashes a Dame Molly" (and similarly for other unique cards). Not an important thing by any means, but it would be cool.

Could you have cards that get gained (and played/"used") by a player be automatically added to that user's the "familiar cards" list? That way the "2 unfamiliar cards" thing can be a great way to ease into the game or a set gradually.

Also perhaps include a "minimum unfamiliar cards" option for that.

A lot of people (including me) won't remember cards after using them once.  Maybe asking if they're familiar will work after the game, but that sounds like too much work for a tiny not-really-needed feature.

I think there's an appropriate N, N >1. 4 seems beyond plenty and like a direct improvement over no automatic additions at all.

I thought cards were marked as familiar after them merely being present in a kingdom for the first time. Is that not how it works?

This seems like the best place to put this: the teacher/event tokens need a rework imho. As is, coin is a bare text +1, which could mean anything. Use a coin sprite for this if possible.

It's the best way to introduce new cards in lieu of a single player campaign, which is important

Cards should be "familiar" after either one or two games with them. One is obviously easier to implement. It's not a problem if users aren't actually familiar with all those cards yet. The point, presumably, is to not dump 10 new cards on a user at once. Making a card "familiar" after one play accomplishes that just fine. Never automatically making cards "familiar" means that lots of players will never become "familiar" with any card.

How do you name a card not in supply?

Not currently possible  :(

IMO until this gets fixed "name a card" cards should be banned like Inheritance and Stash. I've played 2 games now where the Mystic pile ran out, meaning you can't use Mystic to name Mystic  (unless you have a Mystic in your hand), which is especially annoying when the last Mystic you played reveals a Mystic on top of your deck and you can't use a Mystic to draw your Mystic.

I remember when Goko had the bug where you couldn't name empty piles. Can't remember when it was fixed. Might've even been before MF took over?

I think you might be able to name mystic by clicking an instance of it the log.

One of the things I miss about isotropic is the "are you sure" notification that can pop up with plays. That would be really helpful for some situations like buying Borrow before playing any treasures.

I'd like to see that, but devil's advocate, you could set your familiarity tolerance to 0 and set that you don't know anything about Mystic.

Another test for "Are you sure" - playing Crown in your action phase when it's the only Action in your hand.

The Undo feature is nice but if there was no new information revealed (eg didn't draw or reveal any cards, didn't play an attack that could trigger a reaction etc.), you shouldn't have to ask for permission. IIRC isotropic was like that.

The only thing you could undo on Isotropic was the automatic playing of all Treasures at the start of your buy phase.
