@AaronGleeman: Coulda sworn I just heard Gladden praise Sano for not over-exerting himself when he knew he'd be out on a DP ball.

Oh, Hampton Inn, why did we forsake you so long this vacation? We should never have strayed.

@TychoBrahe: Shoot, just a few months of playing DOOM (keyboard-only, mfer!) was enough to rub the paint off my new keyboard's arrow keys...

But there's a 1 in 6 chance to be able to use the tuna boats in the first place (roll a 10-12), then a 1 in 36 chance to roll a 12 after that. So that's a rare scenario.

Yeah, but if you've got 3 tuna boats you have a 50/50 chance of getting more than $20, which is a fantastic payoff when the two most expensive cards in the game are $22 and $30.

Then somebody uses their tax office to take half of your coins or the business center to take the tuna boats you've been hoarding.

Of course, they first have to acquire one of those buildings (each of which are rarer than tuna boats.)

I'll just chime in and say we used to play base Machi Koro all the time, and have always (except for the very first play) used the 10-card rule from the expansion. Loved it. Then I got The Harbor for Father's Day, and, well, we've played it maybe half a dozen times and it's probably been a month or two since the game's been touched. Basically every Harbor game has come down to me abusing my tuna boats and then buying the airport and then it's over. Granted, it's down to a lot of luck that I (and only I) always had the money to buy the tuna boats when they appeared, and luck that my tuna boats get rolled, plus more luck that they pay off well; I just happened to get "lucky" every single time.

We did try mitigating the luck-of-the-draw by using 12 piles (10 was fine for the base game's 15 establishments, but Harbor adds another 10, so I figured 12 piles was a decent compromise.) In the future I might consider ditching the airport altogether, and maybe the tuna boat. The new purple buildings also look overpowered, but they haven't gotten enough play yet to tell whether that's the case.

@KHome1990: At some point I'll get to it. I was supposed to play it for the Megawad Club after ConCERNed, but only got through the latter.

@KHome1990: Oblivion and Hadron are definitely on my radar; I loved Flashback to Hell and quite enjoyed ConCERNed.

@KHome1990: Also, I'm going through a phase of being slightly weary of DOOM2; I'm enjoying DOOM1 maps much more at the present moment.

@KHome1990: I haven't actually finished Valiant yet (only episode 1) so Monument takes top honors so far. Valiant *is* fantastic, though.

@AaronGleeman: Listening, I can't help thinking that the point is that 6 weeks of quality play was the aberration, not the recent tailspin.

Sliced my lip shaving, and now I'm doing duckface in the mirror to assess the damage.

1. I printed mine on full-sheet sticker paper, folded each sticker around an index card, and trimmed.

2. My intention when designing them (and presumably what happycamper, from whom I got the idea, also intended) was that if there was a rule question on a card, you could pull a single tab out instead of having to dig for a rulebook. (My box has no place to hold the rulebooks, so putting the FAQ text on the tabs was a must from the start.)
