    You want a Mars deck?  Seven out of my eleven decks have Mars!  I'm tired of Mars!  Clearly, I need some of YOUR luck.  I'll send you some of mine once I figure out how.

    If you think of Sanctum as religious zealots, it all makes sense.  As long as there are enemies to distract her, she's great, but without someone to fight, she just starts looking for people on her own side that don't live up to her high standards of purity and honor.  And if she's alone, then clearly it's time for her to atone for her own sins with a hair-shirt and maybe some self-flagellation.

    Suttkus got a reaction from Derrault in Question about "Purging"/"Destroying"   
    Purge wins.  Even if you consider Bad Penny destroyed, she's destroyed as a consequence of being purged, and the purge rule is, "Purged cards no longer
    interact with the game state in any manner."  So Bad Penny's text won't be executed, that would be interacting with the game state in some manner.

    I had to buy a sixth deck before I got one without Mars in it.  That's how random works.

    People have this idea that random should be smooth.  It isn't.  Ask someone to make twenty dots on a piece of paper randomly and they'll almost always make a very smooth, even arrangement where the dots aren't clustered at all.  Ask a computer to put twenty random dots on a piece of paper and clustering is something that will happen a lot.  This phenomena is a real challenge to scientists who sometimes have a difficult time determining if something that looks like an unusual cluster IS unusual, or just random stuff randomly clustering.  There are entire branches of mathematics dealing with this problem.

    The human brain is just terrible at statistics.  It wants to find patterns in everything, even where they don't exist.

    I loved Guardians.  Probably the only CCG that they stopped making sets for DESPITE strong sales.  The designers didn't want to dilute the game.  Seriously?  I don't think they grasped the CCG model. : - )

    I need to dig out my Guardians cards and throw some exploding pigs at my gaming group.

    Suttkus got a reaction from TwitchyBait in How do we become a judge?   
    When Netrunner first came out, digital board games were a minor part of the industry.  Today, apps are everywhere and boardgame apps are big business, and FFG is inching into the realm.  Thanks to the development of app-dependent board games (Mansions of Madness), they now actually have staff for this stuff.

    I'm not saying that they will.  I am saying that it's far more likely than it was with Netrunner.

    Suttkus got a reaction from sabrjay in Registering decks that aren't yours   
    I sent some feedback regarding the app to the developers, and asked the following question:

    "What happens if someone else tries to scan a deck I've claimed?  Do I have to unregister my deck as mine before I give it to someone else?"
    And I received the following answer:
    "As for your question – yes, decks can be scanned multiple times and be registered under multiple users at the same time. (Only the first registration gets the aember shards though!) Our reasoning (as you pointed out) is that players may trade decks or they may want to follow tournament scores of friends/rivals decks."
     
    There are a number of interesting implications here. 
    Each deck is tracked by itself, not with regard to any player.  Don't leave newly opened decks around unscanned, or someone might swipe your precious æmbershards! I had a third, but I've forgotten what it was.  Typical.

    Suttkus got a reaction from Kilroykilled in Questions about Masterplan   
    Since no rule covers what happens to the card under Masterplan, CLEARLY it must be left face down where it was and never touched again.  It can never be restored to the deck and is lost forever.  Even if you go to play a new game, you must leave the card there!  : - )

    But in the absence of any RAW or rulings, common sense suggests it goes to the discard pile.

    The Archon name random generator lurches from producing awesome names to producing sublimely ridiculous ones, to just nonsensical.  I think I've found my new lazy-Sunday-I'm-so-bored go-to spirit-raising activity.
    I thought I'd look for "unfortunate pairing of words", and I thought I'd start with "love"!  Didn't find anything truly unfortunate, they've scrubbed the database pretty good, I guess, but these amused me.

    On an unrelated note, there are 57 results for “misteress”.  Is this some weird combination of syllables that comes up a lot, or did the people making the database not know how to spell “mistress”?


     
    "Hate" turned out to have fewer interesting names than I hoped for.  All I've got is:

    Suprashank, Volcano Doctor
      No, doc, don't clear it's throat!  RUN AWAY!  HE CURED ANOTHER BLOCKAGE! Arbitrarily Blood-Stained Octovia  Is this better or worse than being blood-stained in a very specific pattern?

    And a few more random observations: Der super „***“ Wilhelm
      I'm sure this name is just fine in whatever language it's from. The Impersonator that Supervises Dice  Well, the tournament policy against dice makes sense now.
