Wow, a rule I've gotten wrong this whole time.

I always thought everyone's first turn only involved one action, and that's how I've taught the game. Reading the Echo rules, I thought 'Weird, why did they change it?', and then I noticed, they didn't ... I have just been teaching it wrong.

Only the first player gets 1 action on his first turn (in a two or three player game), and the first two players get 1 action (in a four / five player game). After that play is two actions.

See, this is why ingaming is bad. It tends to result in higher expression of deleterious recessive rules interpretations. You should encourage your group members to game more with other groups.

That's an odd statement to make.

There's about four different unconnected groups I game with regularly. Only two people in those groups have this game (myself being one), and so I'm the one who teaches it (I tend to teach a lot of games).

Seems like a perfectly reasonable statement to me:

playing with more different game groups = playing with more different people = more chances that someone besides yourself independently purchased / learned the game

I would guess that 95% or the people on BGG play in a more limited gaming group than Kirk.

I'm pretty sure Ian was just making a pretty funny joke about inbreeding, not actually criticizing anyone's play group.

This. I had genetics on the brain and saw an amusing comparison, nothing more.
