RandomTrivia: You said no crankin' it on stream!
RandomTrivia: Oh ok, fair enough :D
PharaohBender27: Daaaang, lrrCORI just checkmated @RandomTrivia there
ghyllnox: Well then, by all means, crank away
RandomTrivia: The downside of referencing one of my own clips is that Cori *also* saw that clip because it was in the Reel :D
Twilight_Spark: The artisans are not compensating for anything, because they are the best.
Saxpython: 18 to go, we're in the endgame
ButButTheJesus: ok its past my bedtime, goodnight folks and happy cranking
Saxpython: <3
Twilight_Spark: Not THAT fishman!
ContingentCat: lrrGOAT !
kusinohki: I think it has to do with the tiles adjacent to the leader on the board
PharaohBender27: Cheer150
RandomTrivia: LUL
Saxpython: :(
kusinohki: Knizia play tested open info. it created information overload and massive analysis paralysis. hiding the scores made the game take an hour less (or so I've heard)
Mashamino: I also hate when scores are trackable but also "hidden," just makes me feel punished for having a bad memory
LoadingReadyRun: HDBS - High Density Baby Storage
HadesLeprechaun: In the same way that in MtG competitive players might make you keep track of known info, friend groups will just let you ask information that you could know
TheDailyMapleSyrup: quote Cori "homeless baby's are a burden on the state!"
Saxpython: @Paul: Is Death Stranding LDBS

Mashamino: but yeah, I've also heard the argument that it can make you overanalyze the scores
PharaohBender27: lrrHEART lrrMATT lrrHEART
Asimech: When you make something hard enough to do most people will stop trying to do it. But some people are so good at remebering and mentally tracking info that those people will have an advantage.
kusinohki: should I post the link to that article again??
RandomTrivia: "On today's episode of CTS - Ian does a war"
coachNelly: give er
insanecat6mtg: I guess if scores were open it might lead to some people trying to sabotage other players more rather then focusing on raising their own.
Asimech: But personally I prefer games where either the info is not trackable _or_ the info is public and there's not enough of it to overload people.
Saxpython: Fry 'em up :(
RandomTrivia: LUL
Asimech: @insanecat6mtg Yeah, that's also a thing, whether that played a conscious part in this game's design or not.
PharaohBender27: lrrWOW

SydPreviouslyHeadache: alternatively. Cori threw incredible shade
PharaohBender27: @TheDailyMapleSyrup It really stinks it's pretty much impossible to search for a clip that was made in a given channel, but not by you katesRage
insanecat6mtg: You can also put enchantments on each others permanents.
RandomTrivia: LUL
kusinohki: @PharaohBender27 are clips even saved for that long? it's been 2-4 years now...
Saxpython: lastest
TheDailyMapleSyrup: last unless it isn't
DeM0nFiRe: Did you guys know Final Wandersong XIV has a free 60 day trial
RandomTrivia: There's a woman who's a giant meanie, if that counts
Saxpython: FBtouchdown <3 FBtouchdown
SydPreviouslyHeadache: i would cower in fear of a drawing horse
RandomTrivia: benginChaos
ContingentCat: as long as its not a good self portrait it's fine, it's Can't draw horses club not don't draw horses club
PharaohBender27: @kusinohki They are saved for at least 2-3 years, but the only way to look up a clip from longer than a month ago is to search "All time," which is sorted by views, and once you get to like 250 views, the search bar just stops, i.e. if the clip you're looking for has less views than that, you can't find it that way
Saxpython: :)
RandomTrivia: It ends with a mulligan, Matt, we'll just roll it back and try something else :D
