It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.

I also was traumatized by the Haunted Mansion. I put it on the mental list of things to be avoided and entirely forgot about it. Until over 20 years later until my kid wanted to go on it and I found myself being snippy and irritated.

Listened to the episode earlier, but wasn't able to write down Rob's MTG:A username... what was it again?

Need some new blood fresh meat sucker friends to play against

FWIW, I started playing a few months ago, for the first time in 20 years.

That's being kicked back as invalid. Not sure if it's case sensitive, but I tried both.


Edit: My display name is Banerunner, but my profile ID is Banerunner#71933. I think the number needs to be present.

Thanks for the requests.

Feels like this could turn into a league...

EDIT: If anyone needs a code for 6 Thrones of Eldraine packs, shoot me a PM, I have an extra code. It's one per account.

I'll have to go find my ID tomorrow, I've played (mostly) off and (a litte) on for the last 20 years, sold my physical collection a few years ago and just started arena, it's great!

As MtG players, I'll point out for others that a lot of drafting does go left/right/left (alternating) and that this actually encourages hate drafting by allowing you to see what the person to your left is passing you so you can block them better in following rounds.

That being said, there is a science to hate drafting that is finely tuned for both each unique game and also the player counts. For instance, hate drafting in a 2-player game is perfectly acceptable because every point taken away from your sole opponent is essentially of equal value as a point gained..... However in a 4 player game, you only have 3 opponents, so hate drafting against one of them is far less effective, not only because it isn't always easy to prognosticate whether that particular opponent will ultimately be your direct competition for first, but because a hate draft often means an opportunity cost that your other two opponents aren't missing if they don't also hate draft (which you really can't count on). As a general rule, I'm find hate drafting a card that is universally good for all other opponents but I RARELY hate draft a card that is only good for one of my opponents unless the situation is uniquely that they and I are the only two actually competing for 1st place.

Late listening to the podcast, but was disappointed in the Pegs' meh response to Barenpark which I found to be a delight. The expansion adds a monorail which is the greatest thing ever. Just look at it:
Board Game: Bärenpark: The Bad News Bears


The base game was a breezy easy game to play with a bit of puzzley think. What were the ones that the Pegs thought it didn't do enough different from? I heard Indian Summer so perhaps it is just which of those you play first becomes the gold standard and you only need one. Mine had bears. (Though I do have Patchwork too and I like both but think Barenpark is just a bit more appealing).

Ok, I can get behind a monorail expansion for pretty much any game.

Just as an addition, by coincidence I taught Barenpark to a friend, just base game and it was very slick and easy. Then we reset and played with grizzlies and monorails and it was a lot more thinky. It does ramp it up quite a bit.
