Man, that reminds me that I haven't even seen any Innovation-related yo mamma jokes.

Your mama's like the metric system, cause she always splays for green.

Innovation General Discussion / Innovation etiquette

Is there some etiquette around chatting and endgame play that someone could lay out for me?

I was recently in a game (with an opponent not-to-be named) where they were a stronger player, but I had a lead in achievements. We had previously exchanged pleasantries (e.g. gl hf) and one funny exchange. On my second to last turn, I said "I think I have you here," or something to that effect. Then there was a big pause, so I asked if they were thinking. The immediate response was that I was being rude, and should calm down.

So... where did I go wrong? I've certainly played enough lower ranked games that I've seen people resign or raqequit rather than play out the last turn.

Thanks all,

I think this would be an awesome idea. It might make automatch a bit more tricky though.

Would this be only for proposed games, or would you want to integrate it into automatch?

Err, sorry.  I do not mean to imply that all apples are bad players.  I am sure that some are very skilled.  I am not an applist.

Surely you mean, "They can't all be bad apples."

I have to credit WinterSpartan for this one.

After playing 60+ games of innovation on iso, last night I walked into my FLGS and bought the box game. I'm looking forward to breaking out the real cards.

Thanks to Chris and Dougz for introducing me to the game. We'll see if the wife likes it.

Big Layoutski/Brutalitops 4 - Hlennartz/Liberion 1
Brutalitops 110, Liberion 95
Colony, Council Room, Gardens, Golem, Hoard, Hunting Party, Island, Margrave, Platinum, Potion, Shanty Town, Stash, and Watchtower on the board. This one was a long race. My hunting party+Margrave enabled by Golem caught up to his early start with Margrave, Hoard, and Garden deck (cleaned by Island). Liberion had the lead for most of the game, but eventually the golems put together bigger turns than his hands full of gold.
Brutalitops 78, Liberion 60
Baron, Colony, Counting House, Feast, Gardens, Laboratory, Mandarin, Philosopher's Stone, Platinum, Potion, Rabble, Talisman, and Treasury on the board. Liberion used treasuries, lab,  and Mandarin to buy a lot of platinum. I use laboratory and baron with a few treasuries to put the pressure on early.
Liberion 40, Brutalitops 21
Bazaar, Expand, Gardens, Inn, Loan♦, Moneylender, Noble Brigand, Remake, Swindler, Tournament, and Young Witch on the board. I attempt to ignore young witch in favor of trashing with remake. It doesn't work out so hot. Liberion's moneylender gets him to $8 for the first province, and tournament carries the game.
Brutalitops 38, Liberion 29
Bank, Black Market, Laboratory, Militia, Monument, Peddler, Possession, Potion, Treasury, Vineyard, and Watchtower. We both open silver/monument, and both of us ignore the black market. This was not a spectacular game. We buy labs and gold. I buy a potion, but don't get the chance to buy possession. I get two $8 hands that are gold, silver, CCC, and that put me ahead.

I didn't get the fifth log. I won this game by a fairly hefty margin.
It was a colony game with goons, cities, smugglers, library, and silk road, and haggler. Mint, Militia and monument were also both on the board. I got the city break 6/4, and I picked up some libraries, which helped me recover from goons. Liberion picked up an early mint, at the cost of one of his silvers, but it didn't seem to help his cycling. My haggler helped me quite a bit.

Good games Liberion!
