I have a few questions and proposed answers that need confirmation:

- Is the gold label for the secret recipe used?
Answer: No, it is effectively replaced by the 5 rep. That also means the Marketing Specialist would not score for that recipe

- Can you brew more than one batch of the secret recipe?
Answer: Yes, as implied by the use of the words "When you first brew the Recipe"

- Does the recipe become public after it's sold for the first time?
Answer: No, the recipe is still secret even if the beer isn't

- Does the recipe count as Advanced Recipe for the purpose of scoring the Tour & Tasting Room (and thus the Tasting Room Manager)?
Answer: Yes, that sounds reasonable

Thank you

Thanks for your questions. You are absolutely correct on all 4 answers.

1. Correct, the gold label is NOT used for the secret recipe, and the Marketing Manager would not apply.

2. Correct, you can brew more than one batch of the secret recipe. You only get the 5 Rep bonus once, though.

3. Correct, the recipe is yours alone for the entire game.

4. Correct, it absolutely does count as an advanced recipe.

Thanks for your questions, and enjoy!

Ben,

Here's as good a thread as any to which you've replied, to say, Thanks!"

Thank you for being involved with your game's players here! It is always comforting to know that a designer cares enough about their game to monitor what players are saying and asking, and especially for them jump in the conversation!

As a counter example, I've recently been playing a lot of another favorite game which shipped a couple months ago. The game's forum is littered with questions and a lot of "Hmmm, I think it goes this way" responses by the players. But not a peep from the designer (or even the publisher). And even on the designer's Blog, where he proclaims to keep on top of his games, not a peep is heard from him. He's alive because he posts blog posts all the time about gaming theory and such, but he hasn't interacted at all with his game's fans.

Sorry - that was longer than intended... the point is that you are just the opposite from him and I'm very glad for that!

It doesn't seem to say it explicitly in the rules, but the secret recipe is still an advanced recipe and you need to brew the basic recipe of that type before you brew it, right?

Yes.

Justification: Remember, there are ONLY three basic recipes, and they start every game in play. (The Secret Recipe does NOT start the game in play). And by definition, ALL other recipes than the basic are advanced, and thusly can't be brewed until you've brewed the basic recipe of that type.

Also, IMHO, I think the rules are explicit in this case... The section on developing a Secret Recipe (pg 13) says specifically to take an advanced recipe from the box [which do not start the game in play]. And the section on pg 10 about Processing Beer (paragraph 3) also specifically says that to brew an advanced recipe you must have previously brewed the Basic Recipe of that style.

But the way you asked the question indicates you already knew this and just wanted to make sure it also applied to the Secret Recipe action. Based on the references above, I'd say it does!
