That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

Less related question: anyone have any idea when will it arrive to European shops?


"Mainland European" I don't know, but it has made it as far as UK shops.

I've usually been buying a Potion in my first two buys or not at all. I've been playing with 3-5 Alchemy cards though.

I've had success with Swindler/Potion, Herbalist/Potion, Steward/Potion, and Woodcutter/Potion, off the top of my head.

The final decks vary a lot. The last game I played went with 4 Familiars early, and then shifted with 1x Ironworks and a ton of Treasuries and Conspirators to start consistently cranking out good stuff. One or two Herbalists were in there too, and I think 1-2 Golems. It was a weird and long game, largely because of my early Familiars.

Woodcutter/Potion? Why not Silver/Potion?

+buy matters a lot more when Alchemy cards are in play. And since most of them give +action, Woodcutter sucks less.
