Kind of related to the Black Market thing: Does the button "Exclude cards I don't own" trump my wish to play with Adventures? Yesterday I had no Adventures cards in 2 out of 3 games, which seems very, very unlikely to have happened randomly.

I suspect something is up with this. I've been getting in a lot of games with no Adventures Kingdom cards but Events included, leading me to believe players I auto-match with are disallowing cards they don't own but Events are being stuck in regardless. However, it could just be randomness so I don't want to call this anything but a suspicion.

I even meant games with neither Events nor Kingdom cards. That 50 randomizers drawn out of 280(?). I haven't done the math, but it doesn't look very likely

Your sample size is too small, it's almost like saying "I had no Adventure cards in 1 out of 1 games". :)

If you Prince a Traveller (say, a Warrior), the exchange UI won't differentiate between the princed Warrior and other Warriors you might have in play. This means that if you first choose to set aside the princed Warrior (as we all do), then you click once on exchange Warrior, it will try and fail to exchange the set-aside Warrior. Thus, you won't exchange anything, even though there was a Warrior in play that was ready to be exchanged. You need to click twice: fail to exchange the first, and then exchange the second.

This is techinically following the rules, though certainly a bit irksome.

The grand scheme follows the rules, but I believe the rules would let you choose which warrior to try and set aside first, while MF doesn't.
And instead it chooses for you the first one you played, which in this case is the one which will fail to be exchanged.

You know I had to tell them that Disciple can't gain Traveller upgrades?

No, but if I had to bet on it, I would have bet that somebody had to have told them.

Instead of saying "anyway", you lot say "any road". Like that makes any sort of sense at all.

I tried discipling my teacher in a game and was confused that it didnt Work since on the card it just says "you may play an Action card from your hand twice. Gain a copy of it."  So it seems that it's not restricted to supply cards, but when you look it up in the FAQ it is. I think it would be better if that were explicitly stated in the card Text, but it's too late for that apparently :D

No, it needs to be explicitly stated in the text if you can gain from locations other than the Supply. When the location is not explicitly stated, it's always from the Supply.

Why would you want more than one Teacher, anyway?

All cards that say "gain" always mean from the Supply unless otherwise stated. You would have to add those words to like 1/3 of the cards in Dominion, probably more.

Yeah i guess youre right i never bothered trying to gain something that is not in the supply. With disciple you can play any card though so i thought the gaining bit would also apply to that, but that would be inconsistent

I played a game today where I was using Coin of the Realm specifically to make Diadem worth more.

Also, Scheme loves + card token.

Distant Lands is new favorite Alt VP.

Ball is my favorite Event.

 I have yet to really enjoy any of the cards/actions that use the Journey token. Even had a game that featured all three cards (MakingFun can't be truly randomizing these cards can they? I have yet to play a game that didn't feature at least two cards/events from Adventures).

Ratcatcher is probably favorite that uses the Tavern Mat.

^And of course the above is subject to change. Don't hold me to this a couple months down the road.
