kusinohki: oh, hey... I've played this!
Rytel: So many bits... love all the pieces
Nigouki: The Building demands sustenance!
volraths_bane: can a single resource count towards multiple buildings?

kusinohki: you don't 'commit' to the building until you build it, so you can have a yellow and brown in such a way that it can be half a farm or 2/3 of a tavern(?) to give you flexibility
Nigouki: does each player get to name their town?

TheWarbo: To restate slightly clearer, the name "Tiny Town" is because all of your residents (on the cards and the game box) are small forest animals.
silenceaux: I missed it, can you build the patterns in any rotation?
dmark312: yes
LathosTiran: @silenceaux yes

TehAmelie: tunnel vision is the worst disease that can happen to a city planner
gruulmagebeast: look at all these brothers in alms
kusinohki: I get tunnel vision in just about every game
kusinohki: I come up with a plan. do the thing, and then totally forget to score the points or trigger the ability that was the whole point of the plan
plummeting_sloth: having personal boards rather than one big board can definitely reenforce that, I feel though
TehAmelie: heh, have you heard this Sim City dev talking about how they wanted to simulate realistic cities but the amount of parking lots made it boring
plummeting_sloth: "A Wish for Wood" is gonna be a very sad final book in the Game of Thrones series
kusinohki: @plummeting_sloth hrm, wonder how this game would work with a shared board... sounds very tricky though
TehAmelie: i'll assume the dragons have burned all the wood
kusinohki: *squeak*
ContingentCat: sergeSqueak
plummeting_sloth: @TehAmelie heh, yeah I saw some urban planners talking about aht, hoping it would lead to a young generation that hates parking minimum zoning

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Fenrikson! (Today's storm count: 230)
TehAmelie: i hate Cities Skylines where you design your city around roads even though it's just realistic
Tiber727: This game strikes a great balance between being simple and being deep.
gruulmagebeast: gonna need some alm-ond milk to go with all these houses
Alness49: Does the cottage group need to touch the greenhouse?
plummeting_sloth: I do love a town so committee to social infrastructure that they built serval poorhouses before actually getting any citizens
Diabore: oh wow
ThyHef: limmyHeadshake Painful
TehAmelie: it's almost christmas, time to jazz up the nut milk again. shall we go with L'eggume this time?
TehAmelie: eggnog-nut-milk i mean
TehAmelie: almond based eggnog
chaostreader: Is it bad to make another millstone for Ben?
TehAmelie: i know words
plummeting_sloth: 0, a strictly better negative number
kusinohki: 0 is not -1?
Dezinkled: I just tried a coconut nog the other week and it was very nostalgic
TehAmelie: it sounds fun
LoadingReadyRun: Dezinkled NOGstalgic?
headdeskdev: The markets include themselves right?
plummeting_sloth: man, the warehouse is so interesting. The more useful, the more pain it causes you
Gobukiller: That pun made me nogtious
KeirenH: is there any way to reduce the number of things in the warehouse?
gruulmagebeast: triple abbey
Veraphage: 4Head
plummeting_sloth: off by one... and by one I mean glass
kusinohki: "don't think of a pink elephant serge"
ContingentCat: Classic Whiskers
noSmokeFire: that can't be the right way to use "forehead"
TheMoatman: No but it is a right way to use 4Head
TheMoatman: Maybe
plummeting_sloth: Serge can mill down all the alms those houses are giving out
LathosTiran: yeah, blue mill has really stagnated the meta
TheMoatman: The annoying thing about twitch emotes is that there's no way to escape the string so it doesn't print the emote. Does \4Head work?
plummeting_sloth: hey, you can mill down lots of things! You can flour anything if you believe
TheMoatman: Well that doesn't print the emote but it does print the backslash
TehAmelie: millers know all about the daily grind
LathosTiran: well the test is there if you select and copy a post. its the twitch chat viewer replacing it in realtime
LathosTiran: text*
TehAmelie: we built this city on rock and alms
Veraphage: Alms well that ends well Kappa
TehAmelie: well if we learned anything from Desert Bus it's that charity works
plummeting_sloth: what I like about this game is something I like about Puerto Rico. You only interact with other players by giving them things, so what you do is try to be the dickishly charitable as possible
TehAmelie: i wonder if you can play it like a potlatch
kusinohki: sounds like you've never suffered from someone calling captain to ship the coffee you want to trade...
plummeting_sloth: yes, but that's still giving you a point. They are "helping"
TehAmelie: kill your enemies with generosity
plummeting_sloth: "Oh, you didn't seem to use teh glass I gave you. Please, have some more glass, I think the issue is you didn't get enough the first time"
TehAmelie: i guess that's not exactly potlatch-y
TehAmelie: that's when you give better and better gifts until someone either is ruined or has to concede the moral victory, valuing material goods over ideology

Banrael: Wait, who has marbles? Are they good marbles?
TehAmelie: are you ready to take it to the next level; Small Cities?
Banrael: I need to get some new ones, lost my old ones :(
plummeting_sloth: ooh, i like that
Banrael: Corgo100
plummeting_sloth: yes, quite literally wild
TehAmelie: random idea: extend the game by just using multiple copies, expanding each player's area
Vilun: but can you still chain them?
LoadingReadyRun: Vilun yes
TehAmelie: i bet that'd work about as well as my invention Double Chess
Vilun: cool, so 8 fountains side-by-side makes 16 points and covers only half the board?
ContingentCat: Narrator: Serge infact had the same plan
Rockario: I would be so tempted to play an entire game mirroring an opponent
plummeting_sloth: hey, at least he's not calling glass "bluey-s"
LoadingReadyRun: the nice part about the monuments is that it stops everyone from being exactly the same
noSmokeFire: "Picture Vitu-gazi"
slazer2au: lrrAWW
Fruan: Reading the Ben explains the Ben
LariatWest: OR, you just leave all the cubes there
ContingentCat: Reading the card explains the card
ozzybrat: reading the card explains the card lol
silenceaux: DM I don't do that
Dread_Pirate_Westley: So you cast Levitate?
Alas_Babylon: @noSmokeFire I sacrifice four lands and animate my only remaining land. Prostrats.
Juliamon: We can unbuild it. We have the technology.
LoadingReadyRun: reading the WHOLE card explains the card
LariatWest: You still got 10 spots to work with
slazer2au: we have a rule in my board game group which is Read the whole card first, then make your move.
slazer2au: So many mistakes before we made that rule.
Vilun: ah, the Ian Flemming statue

Earthenone: ben dident do anything
Alas_Babylon: @MrQBear His special building gives him VP equal to the number of other buildings in his town when he builds it. His building was going to be his very first building...
slazer2au: MrQBear he didn't read his whole card.
Earthenone: he took it back
ContingentCat: fill this grainary with...grain
MrQBear: OH.
Alas_Babylon: So uh... one point!
ContingentCat: I feel like Serge is having a personal breakthrough
Alas_Babylon: But thankfully the players were cool people and let him unbuild into the base resources he had. So all's good.
oyleslyck: Serge " lrrGREED " Yager
plummeting_sloth: so, question is this Tripletown rules where the building has to go down where the last resource was placed?
silenceaux: cinder blocks...
BlightningHelix: I mean, gray bricks are a thing.
slazer2au: Do you not have turquoise bricks?
TehAmelie: ooh Cindertown is the name of my fictional city now
Despoiler98: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Play it Forward (Ian takes over Play it Foward and he's checking out Shenmue 3. Game: Shenmue 3) at Wed 08:00 PM PST (1:09 from now).
Alas_Babylon: Wow, stopwatch dot com is in fact not a stopwatch applet at all, just some weirdo upcoming social media thing
Alas_Babylon: I was bamboozled
gawag_: gross
plummeting_sloth: ah, you want stopwatch dot edu for that
TehAmelie: bah, such a what is the time dot com ripoff
Alas_Babylon: ah, thanks friend, but alas, it is too late
ContingentCat: only very slightly subtext, laying juuust below the text
LoadingReadyRun: plummeting_sloth nope, you can put the building on any of the resources used
plummeting_sloth: tx!
plummeting_sloth: hmm... I guess you would still wantt the trading post centrally located so it ends up in more lines
TehAmelie: how much wood
kusinohki: black granary - one of my favorite super heroes...
FinalShowFilms: Well it took less than 20 minutes for Ben resume dunking on his friends
ContingentCat: Granary where you store your Grans
plummeting_sloth: ah, thats where they store Grandmothers for the winter
Rockario: A Grainary, a library for grain
TehAmelie: what does a vegan zombie say?
TehAmelie: grraaaaaiiiiiiiiinnnnns
kusinohki: GRAINS!
TehAmelie: we got there
silenceaux: Theoretically 3 of you can win
kusinohki: What do we want? BRAINS! When do we want them? BRAINS!
plummeting_sloth: plus, Serge you sould be comparing to Ben, not Kathleen for feast halls. I like that because you can theoretically have 3 bonuses for that
Legokman: Ah yes- I too tuned in late and don’t know what is happening-
Himyul: got it, 7
plummeting_sloth: get a dice for it
EscherichiaCole: 3
tergonis: -3 points for ben, got it
orimazer: ?
headdeskdev: It was 8 right?
orimazer: 6 i think
ContingentCat: 69
NotCainNorAbel: i got the nnumber 8
slazer2au: 6 points for Ben. Got it
Legokman: What are we remembering?
CamelAttack: 46 it is
MrQBear: 2.3
Alas_Babylon: No, it was 10
klace26: guys it was 9
Izhuark: Or you can write it on the sheet right now ?
Vilun: chat is not siri
IbunWest: Minus 50 points to House Ben
oyleslyck: 420 got it
NotCainNorAbel: sure is too bad he only got 12 points
theneatestburrito: Points? Best I can do it 3.50.
plummeting_sloth: surely there must be a die-6 somewhere in that room
erloas: so we know, Ben's points will be whatever number chat *never* says
noisyblizzard: i am sure it was at least 3
Naarius: We're consistently inconsistent
Sheikun07: Ben got pi points
Legokman: We have an infinite amount to choose from
Dog_of_Myth: Why not pi?
Veraphage: !advice
LRRbot: Heal yourself before you heal others.
klace26: good work guys
Naarius: !badadvice
LRRbot: Add "lust" to "hangry."
Alas_Babylon: consistently inconsistent but incredibly credible
MrQBear: Wait, an INFINITE amount of numbers to choose from? I thought it stopped at 10!
Alas_Babylon: @MrQBear ACKTCHUALLY 10 isn't a number :V
TehAmelie: are integers infinite or arbitrarily large? discuss (don't really)
slazer2au: Legokman we get infinity^2. 0 to infinity and negative infinity to 0
Dog_of_Myth: I chose i
Alas_Babylon: Integers ARE infinite but CAN BE arbitrarily large is my answer
MrQBear: @Alas_Babylon Oh. That's true. Now I don't know what I know.
Alas_Babylon: I don't know either.
Alas_Babylon: Other than that you are a cool person.
plummeting_sloth: oh man, Matts building would have combo'd great with teh Almshouse
MrQBear: Wh- Aw shcuks.
kumatsu: Yeah Serge gets confused, usually he Glasses his electronics instead of Bricking them
BlightningHelix: I mean, glassing your electronic *might* brick them.
ContingentCat: sergeSqueak
kumatsu: sergeSqueak
chesul: they both break bones.
slazer2au: chesul lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
markaci: elfunkPopcorn
plummeting_sloth: tiny town: A command Economy
ContingentCat: "But sir, people are starving can we please have wheat" "No, more brick"
slazer2au: It's OK Ben, you are on an amount of points.
gawag_: as an architect, yes
gawag_: thats me literally right now lol
ContingentCat: turning?
control_rig: It's the Snerge!
erloas: Snerge
NotCainNorAbel: Snerge
Sheikun07: Snerge is reterning
Dog_of_Myth: Snerge is loose
plummeting_sloth: how many levels of house are you on, my dude
damn_i_am_pretty: Serge and Snerge are two poles of a Alignment grid. I argue there are two more Serge-utations we have yet to name
BloodnBullets: nicole gets it!
MiniM7rk: My good friend Pete made this game! This is awesome to see you enjoying it.
TacitusVigil: That's strong words from Traitor Ben. Kappa
SnackPak_: The facade fell
BloodnBullets: Ive said it for years!
TacitusVigil: So is Snerge the natural ally of Weej?
ContingentCat: I mean Serge did spend months building a volcano as a fun way to dispose of extra villagers
oyleslyck: "Are we the baddies?"
Eklinaar: The Ferengi in the mirror universe were all super nice and good.
TacitusVigil: @Eklinaar Except for Nog.
Dog_of_Myth: So what were the Borg like in the Mirror universe?
plummeting_sloth: I hope my mirror twin is French. Like, this isn't a mirror universe where everyone is French, just for some reason I am French in that universe, which means the me in this universe must be anti-French
TacitusVigil: In one of the novels, pretty much the same except they had a Diamond instead of a Cube and they had a Borg King
BloodnBullets: Cam has been making ground on that traitor title, unwillingly.
silenceaux: Wowwwwww
Banrael: #TeamOrder
TacitusVigil: In the Mirror Universe, Picard goes by the name Luc. Yes, I know too much about this, why do you ask? :D
klace26: so you are british plummeting_sloth?
chaostreader: @plummeting_sloth Are you English?
klace26: great minds think alike
ZeroArcana: we're looking at a Serge of Chaos
chesul: I mean, really, Serge is the biggest asset to Team Chaos.
mtvcdm: Just about everyone on the crew has their moments of betrayal tbh. It's a matter of how often and how dramatic.
NotCainNorAbel: The chaos with Team Order is that in order to get all those order numbers they have to use chaos numbers.
AzureShok: @NotCainNorAbel The ends justify the means B-)
