A note about what Tom said regarding the Bridge:

Bridge also adds +1 to your money, so 6 money and a Bridge is enough to buy a Province.

To see the true power of the Wishing Well, play the second recommended set-up. Wishing Well with Scout or another Wishing Well, and you're not guessing, you're stating!

Scout, yes, another wishing well, no. The first wishing well lets you know what is on top of your deck (assuming you guess wrong), but when you play the second one, the first thing you do is draw a card, so you draw the card you knew and you don't know what's under it.

Of course, with the scout you can set up to the top 4 (depending on how many victory cards went directly into your hand), so that works...

I think the Saboteur means that you take a card costing up to 2 less than the trashed card, not 2 or less period. So that means if your Province is sabotaged, you can gain a gold, or a nobles, or a duchy, or an estate, or whatever, but not more than 6 (which is 2 less than 8).

You're right - that's what I meant. Sorry if I wasn't clear in the video.

For the non-mathematicians out there: Google is your friend!

52 choose 10
