Swamp Hag doesn't distribute Curses when buying from the Black Market :(

It should.

It did in the game I just played

Looking at the log, it turns out that my opponent didn't actually buy something. But due to past performance, it seems I automatically assumed it more likely that MF got it wrong.

If you have $7, and there's just one Province left (and you want it) -- buy Borrow!

But play your Treasures first, because otherwise you might end up with just $1 and a -1 card token on your deck.

The card Gear isn't gear as in machinery, but gear as in camping or military gear.  I hadn't looked closely at the artwork before.

What would the machinery Gear have to do with Adventuring?

Have you ever been a DM/GM?  The shit that PCs shove into their bags "just in case" is amazing.  1000 candles, bucket of lard, an entire handy haversack full of lamp oil... yeah, half a dozen cogwheels wouldn't be surprising at all.  Especially in Eberron.  Everyone remembers Eberron, right? <crickets>

Well, if you give the players something, they're naturally going to assume you're giving it to them because you have also designed a use for said item later on in the game.

No man, this is stuff they bought in town.  Hard to tell them a city of 20k people wouldn't have those things for sale.

That's weird then. I usually play with much stingier players who never buy anything unless it's armor (myself included when I'm a player).

This time, I found a real bug!

Trade Route/Inheritance. If you gain Estates after inheriting, the Trade Route token is not removed from the pile, leading to this funny game where Estates are empty, but still have their token on them:

Unless I'm being thick, I think I'm right in saying that BoM as Gear should be discarded at end of turn if you didn't set aside any cards.  Correct?  In which case I should report that as a bug.

The funny thing is that with Making Fun, you can never be too careful with reporting bugs because you never know when they might actually implement the wrong rules as a result of your bug report.

Don't think about your bad experiences. Don't worry about your lack of matchmaking. Just look at the floating heads, gliding in and out of existence. Look at Salvager's face, bless his soul. Look how phased out he is, floating with the misty crystal ball residue. He is your Teacher. He is your Master. Learn from Salvager. Become phased out. Do not think about your miserable experience with Making Fun. Only think about how pleasant Salvager's eyes are, how they gaze into your soul. He can see the potential. He can see the peace inside, just waiting to be used. Let go of your anger. Let go of your hatred. Become one with the Salvager. You can do it. Do not think about your miserable experience with Making Fun. Let go.

And then Salvager disappears and is replaced with Thief.

I've learned that people really don't like to let you play out your complex Adventures turns, and the number of resignations seems to have skyrocketed. Anecdotally, a lot of these are on the last turn just seconds before finishing.

Of course this may be just a rush to go explore the new cards more after the game is out of hand. Regardless, I understand and I don't hold it against anyone, it's just something I've noticed.

I've learned that 'learnt' is equally valid as 'learned'.
Only in American English, I believe.

I'm late, but we have a lot of language fans.  I use learnt, and dictionaries tend to list this as more common in British English.

Yup. Most noticeably this happens in page/peasant games

CRAZY bug.
Just played this game: http://gokosalvager.com/static/logprettifier.html?https://dominion-game-logs.s3.amazonaws.com/game_logs/20160510/log.0.1462901128150.txt
My Spy discarded my opponent's Champion! Did those MF...people actually implement Champion as being the top card of your deck when it's not your turn instead of being in play??

He never played it; it was actually the top card of his deck.

Duh. For some reason I was sure he had been playing with it for several turns.

Well, there's a simple test. If he had played champion then the spy would have no effect on him. Champion blocks attacks.  8)

You can play Coppers, then buy Bonfires to trash them, then (assuming you still have $6) buy Grand Market, because your Coppers are no longer in play.

(I had just figured I wouldn't buy one that turn because getting rid of the Coppers was better.  This was a nice surprise.)
