Your scoreboard that you placed in the bottom left corner blocks how many cards are left in your deck and blocks part of the vp counter as well. You could probably re-position it higher up and narrower ("DB" vs. "R") to avoid blocking these.

The right side of the log/chat is also getting cut off. We want to see your splendid wit!

On behalf of Mic Qsenoch, who is too shy to tell you himself, I want to compliment your choice of background art.

I'll just have to close my eyes while I watch.

Thanks JW, I'll be sure to make the window formatting even more obtrusive for next time :)

Most people cover the top of the log with things, but that is the opposite of what you appear to be going for. My recommendation is to place this on top of the province pile.

Actually you should put it in the center of the screen and make it really large. It is hard to see everything on it at this size.

Isn't it pretty much fine to cover the play area though? There's no information there that isn't also on the log.

Game 2, Dan Brooks opens Hermit / Magpie. He only ends up with one Sauna, buying e.g. Pawn over Sauna. The first time he can get Avanto, he gets Festival instead. He ends up with 1 Sauna 3 Avantos to his opponent's 4 Saunas 2 Avantos. He goes on to win the game, for all the world like the presence of Sauna / Avanto didn't make this a dull luckfest.

Well, Sauna isn't that good in the early. So if you can trick your opponent into buying most of them, you can often take away most of the Avantos with a stronger deck.

That game, I think I should have gone for an overdrawn Festival/Hunting Grounds deck to threaten an early Estate pileout with 1 Sauna and at most 1 Avanto.

Also, here's a Mandarin/Capital video:

There was a discussion on the fastest way to make the engine go "boom" on this board - and go "boom" it did!

That's insane. I don't think I would have ever been able to piece that together.

Some interesting games in the ro32 match against RTT. Lots of messy decks and playing around piles.
