Tiber727: This game has a special card that goes on the top of the deck. The card on top of your deck is not in your hand, but counts for going bust.

atrociouslyambisinister: Anyway lrrGREED
Dovakey: @Tiber727 thats what it was. thank you kindly
RatherWT: Works every time!
samuraitiger19: decay is the worst
cthulhudude23: spoiling is damn brutal in this game. like all press your luck games, you kinda get a pass on doing it early game, but if it happens late game, you're pretty much toast
Dedwrekka: There's a card counting aspect to the game as you have a set number of decay marks in your deck
PMAvers: Man, imagine if Adam was around for this, he'd be pushing his luck all the time.
samuraitiger19: @cthulhudude23 preety much yeah
Rhonlore: @PMAvers Muttering something about justice in this world
RatherWT: lrrADAM Spin the wheel baybeeee
coriolis_storm: Beej is correct
samuraitiger19: but 5 mana next turn is amazing for Serge early game
samuraitiger19: he got really lucky on his draws there
Dedwrekka: The tricky part is when you add in the effects of Extra decay marks and Negative decay marks
kusinohki: I want to say there are cards with 2 decay, but I could be wrong...
Tiber727: One thing even the rules suggest, don't put multiple decay on the same card. You can bust even when drawing your starting hand.
Dedwrekka: Yes, a fair number of the most expensive cards have multiple decay symbols on single enchantments
coriolis_storm: @kusinohki IIRC, there are 2 cards with multiple decay in the base game

kusinohki: I found the strat choice of "filling your blank cards, vs loading 1 card with 3 things quickly" rather interesting
ninja_theory_ashrams: Haha2020
Dedwrekka: Depends. Some cards combo off of specific symbols so you don't want to spread them out
kusinohki: I vaguely remember trying to load one card with as many helmet symbols as possible
kusinohki: don't remember if it worked well or not...
RatherWT: Oh cool!
Dedwrekka: Yeah, the helmet symbols usually combo out
samuraitiger19: @kusinohki there are some cards that can do insane things with defenders
dangerous_safety: dryad is a gambling wizard

samuraitiger19: nice hand

RatherWT: Chieftain switch confirmed.
samuraitiger19: yeah I remember me and my friends just start decay counting
raven534: I kind of want to see a game like this but top and bottom are interchangeable, making middle slots much more valuable
kusinohki: no
RatherWT: This is the kind of crazy modular card game I wanted to see ten years ago.
kusinohki: I forget... the other symbos (green, yellow, etc). they're only used to buy vales?? they don't count as mana to buy cards correct??
RatherWT: Right
coriolis_storm: @kusinohki COrrect
kusinohki: ty
Tiber727: @RatherWT It's an amazing concept, that this game doesn't fully utilize. The designer made a different game with this concept, but I've heard reviews were so-so.
samuraitiger19: very risky to do that though. you better have a good reason to do so.
RatherWT: I'm sure it would work well in an online environment too. If it was a trading card game or something.

BasilBrushOff: Happy birthday Matt!
RatherWT: Just get two fridges.

HorusFive: A prop fridge
samuraitiger19: @nigouki no.
Earthenone: pride51 these are for a bit, but also help you eat?
RatherWT: Judge! Ben's popping off!
HorusFive: Not to be confused with your fridge prop- which is a non-functioning shell of a fridge
Pazzix: why is it always bufferugbdf[hd
AranMathai: @BrowneePoints Wolf and Fox are also options.
kusinohki: start labeling your food - "ian's lunch" "beej's dinner" "LRL bit"
ContingentCat: gesundheit?
ninja_theory_ashrams: benginCop benginPun benginCop
HorusFive: Probably with a secret door in the back
damn_i_am_pretty: Oh Serge. The hubris
simriel: @RatherWT Not my game, but J'll allow it
Tiber727: @LoadingReadyRun Right. Drawing a blank when pushing is functionally the same as not having pushed, unless you slot a tile into that card this turn.
RatherWT: lol
BrowneePoints: @AranMathai It's just an lgbt in joke that "30 is Gay Death" and Fox is specifically "Silver Fox" which is 50+
samuraitiger19: HUBRIS
damn_i_am_pretty: sergeOffByOne
kusinohki: @Tiber727 the card 'on deck' doesn't count for mana and such. pushing and drawing a blank adds that card to the pool
antonaqua: Always use protection
Earthenone: always be pushing
RatherWT: lrrSERGE - It's got serge protection.
thundervoice_1: lrrAWESOME_TK Happy Birthday Matt
atrociouslyambisinister: Serge protection
samuraitiger19: no grab the vale!
HorusFive: "Never Tell Me The Odds" Dery
LoadingReadyRun: Tiber727 because you stop on the cursed land, you at least get that one extra mana
egyptcraze: just get the vale beej
ContingentCat: Stop cursing him Ben!
Tiber727: @kusinohki Actually, you're right. I forgot about that.
samuraitiger19: you fool now you can grab a vale this turn
Despoiler98: CALLED IT

Sogheim: wheelerHub waiting...
cdutson: full-on Snerge in tonight's stream
sharkfinnigan: Welcome to the highlights
atrociouslyambisinister: it's pronounced HUB-ris
tknocker: beej was pushed into pushing.
AranMathai: @BrowneePoints I faced that death myself, two years ago. >_> I wasn't aware that Silver fox was 50+, though. Learned something new today :)
RatherWT: Oh, like the other players were sabotaging him.
kusinohki: think I had a deck once with 2 of those 'push protection' card and at least 1 discard card. could almost go through my entire deck every turn. pretty sweet!
ContingentCat: laughterwards: when you can laugh afterwards
Sarah_Serinde: sergeIntoTheSea
Rhonlore: kusinohki thats my kind of deck
RatherWT: That's why the call it Serge Protection. He protected Beej and now he's exhausted.
Earthenone: hootie!
Rhonlore: ^
kusinohki: who dee?
RatherWT: There should be a hootie emote.
CWaltz86: i miss hootie already
ContingentCat: Hootie is such a good member of road quest

kusinohki: "and I thought it smelled bad on the outside!"
Mysticman89: I quite liked cedric
Mysticman89: Na'vi on the other hand
Sarah_Serinde: HorusFive Hootie's been on the LRR set pretty much since they got back from the trip though
Juliamon: Hootie has been on-set for a year now. It's not a spoiler, it's yall not noticing.
clawso2: Howdy
antonaqua: Does the game come with those sleeves or is it custom
RatherWT: It's like a Chekhov's Owl.
Despoiler98: Please Dont Beej
Earthenone: so much mana!
samuraitiger19: @antonaqua come with sleeves
Tiber727: Technically speaking, Hootie is mass produced. It could be one of those goldfish dying situations.
matufin0: and he still has lotus

Earthenone: mystic vale
minecraftdude131: ok thx
sithenin: I like this game. Last time we played I managed to negate all but 3 curses so I got to play my entire deck each round
samuraitiger19: high risk but great rewards come end game
samuraitiger19: @sithenin I love it when that happens
RatherWT: And then Beej wouldn't have to expend the extra mana.
kusinohki: start player?
PMAvers: Also so I think everyone gets equal number of turns?
samuraitiger19: vales are awesome
ninja_theory_ashrams: paying 2 for that means you can keep that mana for next turn
RatherWT: Exactly, bank it for a better turn.
the_one_and_only_kim: is Serge talking entirely in memes today?
RatherWT: Hey. It's free real estate.
CWaltz86: i really wish i understood what was going on :P
minecraftdude131: same lol
CWaltz86: i get some of the purchasing parts
ArcOfTheConclave: the way this builds your cards is interesting
CWaltz86: but not the pushing part
RatherWT: It's so cool!
Tiber727: @CWaltz86 They're trying to get mana (blue symbol on left of card and not get red symbols.). Mana lets them buy things. They can push to try and draw more cards, but they lose everything if they draw another red.
minecraftdude131: huh
coriolis_storm: @CWaltz86 @minecraftdude131 Basically you flip cards until you reveal 3 red symbols. You can then buy cards with the blue symbols
CWaltz86: are the cards on the left of the table near matt the VP?
kusinohki: pushing - there are 'decay' symbols. hitting 4 decay 'spoils' which mean you lose your turn. players reveal cards until 3 decay. they may 'push' to attempt to add more cards, but risk busting

LRRbot: Quote #4659: "If everyone except you is having a bear problem, you are the bear problem." —Paul [2018-02-07]
CWaltz86: is this a bit lower on the interactive side?
azureHaights: So, I don't know if this is the same for everyone who uses Win10, but my login screen picture just now was taken in Victoria
kusinohki: but if you put growth on the same card as decay it basically cancels the decay on that card...
azureHaights: Thought that was neat
HorusFive: I believe the proper improv is "No, But"
JonnyGlitch: Not sure I can bear these puns
BrindleBoar: This is my totem, this is my bear. One is for fighting, one is for fun.

RatherWT: This is the Platonic Ideal of Bear.
ContingentCat: !findquote yikes

PMAvers: To be fair, the druids attacking each other doesn't really make... sense? They might be competing to repair their areas, but they don't want to muck up other's progress.
coriolis_storm: @kusinohki That's the ideal situation, but sometimes that's not possible
samuraitiger19: there is a hero in one of the expansions that's all about the decay

Sarah_Serinde: Well they didn't start right on the hour, and the first several minutes were the opening talk and explaining how the game works
ContingentCat: so the cards are like ogres?
kusinohki: first time playing, rules explanation, sponsor housekeeping, plus stream entertaining... things will always run long on afk
Sarah_Serinde: And games go slower when you're still learning them
coriolis_storm: @CWaltz86 No. The nearest is some inserts that allows you to remove a card from play or from your deck
Tiber727: This game also starts really slow and goes really fast by the end.
kusinohki: they're also not playing 'simultaneously' - one person buying while the prvious player is drawing their cards. that speeds the game up considerably
coriolis_storm: Especially the base game

CWaltz86: @kusinohki ive only played three player star realms once and it can get messy
CWaltz86: fun though
brainiac4: Arctic Scavengers has an interesting take on deck-building and interaction. There are two phases, scavenge and skirmish. Cards not used in the scavenge phase are used in the skirmish, when everyone is vying for a single "contested resource" card. So there is interaction, but it's limited.
MaxLSilver: Friend of mine introduced me to this game last year. It's surprisingly relaxing, and I love the overlay thing.
RatherWT: You could put it on a cursed land and make it... blank?
CWaltz86: i keep meaning to buy arctic scavenger cause its p fun, but i keep seeing it when im buying too many other tings i "need"
RatherWT: DM I do that
kusinohki: "just blep it" - serge

kusinohki: @LoadingReadyRun any chance of a VP supply count down for the overlay?
PMAvers: So if Beej wins, will he do the Dance of the Nine Veils?
CWaltz86: veils go into the deck?
RatherWT: No, seems they stick around. Like Emblems.
samuraitiger19: @pmavers are you trying to get this channel shut down?
ContingentCat: what could go wrong?
kusinohki: I think vales just stay in play and either give a permanent benefit or simply points at the end

chesul: CWaltz86 mana is money in this game, you need it to buy card additions.
orbitaltuna: is that a curling stone?
RatherWT: You don't make the mana until your turn. That's Beej's hand for next turn.
RatherWT: Because he can still press his luck on his turn and maybe lose the hand.
green2008: 57
Loonatic93: Do you have any bear paws?
kusinohki: "wait a minute, I'll go check"

samuraitiger19: this might take a while cause the game doesn't end until the VP pool is gone
Kwannon23: Thanks for the Haha2020 @formerlyboredgamer
chesul: samuraitiger19 as they were saying, once that pool starts actually draining, which it will soon, the game ends very quickly.

seenoham: the term is Hat Trick
coriolis_storm: @chesul The first expansion helps a lot in that regard. Smooths out the power curve by adding more options, especially for the lower-tier inserts
chesul: coriolis_storm does it fix the deck thinning problem?
RatherWT: Oh wait, that middle green also eats the mana.
mrverbal: @kusinohki couldn't stand legendary for exactly this reason
samuraitiger19: ooo matt finally joined the engine game
RegisTKM: Some of matt's cards are also negative mana
mrverbal: game was nowhere near good enough for the time cost
coriolis_storm: IIRC, it doesn't have any effects that allow you to remove cards, so only those from the base game exist (and therefore more rare than the base game)
chesul: anything with green trees is the best.
seenoham: Bear seems just generally good
mrverbal: green trees OP in this right?
chesul: sadly, in my experience, with the base game, green trees are better than literally anything else.
samuraitiger19: yep
Phailhammer: Subs get ads now?
Juliamon: Prime subs get ads now.
Phailhammer: I'm not Prime
Juliamon: Hm
seth_erickson: what a horrible disincentive to sub with prime then

PMAvers: Like, Grasslands is pretty nice since it just turns a Cursed Lands into a blank card.
Ba_Dum_Tish: That makes prime a worse option
kusinohki: yeah, the 3 camera angles aren't connected it seems... (vp supply total)
egyptcraze: @loadingreadyrun for some reason as you switch cameras the total pt pool is stuck at 30
PMAvers: Oh jeeze, playing against the computer in the digital version, I just had a turn where I got 19 mana.
LoadingReadyRun: think I have the VP overlay fixed now
egyptcraze: thanks paul!
Juliamon: Yeah, it's not worth investing in Prime if you're specifically doing it to sub, but it still comes with free games and you can always use the sub for channels you just want the emotes from and don't plan on actually watching.
kusinohki: sorry for being so demanding Paul. lrrHEART
samuraitiger19: I think beej might have this.
LadyAtarka: benginHi
samuraitiger19: beej now has ygdrasil
djalternative: @Juliamon can you link me to the prime subs get ads now documentation?
Dedwrekka: I think you can go over the alloted VPs if someone triggers end game but gets more VPs than are left in the pot
Juliamon: Sure, give me a minute
chesul: growth tender is probably the most broken card in the game if you can set it up at all.
ninja_theory_ashrams: @ladyatarka benginHi Haha2020
kusinohki: @Dedwrekka probably? vp supply just triggers end game
djalternative: Also, the "you get free games so you get shit all from other twitch services" is complete bullshit for mac users which still don't have access to the games YEARS LATER
samuraitiger19: holy crap that sucks for prime subs... like the benefits are practically gone...
coriolis_storm: @djalternative Right there with you, although I do enjoy Prime Video, so worth it to me for that
Juliamon: Note that the article is from 2018. This has been in place for awhile now.
kusinohki: got him! (poor serge)
samuraitiger19: push it! push it real good!
kusinohki: as dark as the sun?? did I hear that right?
samuraitiger19: windmill slam buy right there if you have the mana.
ThatLooseCake: Looks like Ben still hasn't drawn the player reference card he accidentally shuffled in
CWaltz86: ah man is Matt gonna loose on his birthday?
UrlorJkron: darken the sun
Earthenone: dont talk to beej or his 4 suns ever again
djalternative: @Juliamon right. that article is completely inaccurate. What they took away was ad-free viewing for every channel subscribed or not. When you do subscribe with prime, you do get ads removed from that channel.
damn_i_am_pretty: C'mon Beej, you got this
kusinohki: "conclave of the endlings!!"
samuraitiger19: get in my belly!
Laurence72: Get in the deck, Shinji!
samuraitiger19: I mustn't spoil. I mustn't spoil. I mustn't spoil.
RegisTKM: You actually all went different builds! Beej is on Symbols, Matt is on Card Quantity, Ben is on Big Mana, and Serge is on Guardians.
Pal_Friendpatine: @djalternative thanks for reading the details! That’s how I thought it worked now. Check channel sub details. If the channel has not turned on “ad-free” viewing for subs then it doesn’t matter the form of the sub. (I have a prime sub channel like this. I see ads)
Gekyouryuu: in new "wanna feel old?" news, I just saw it pointed out that we're exactly as far away from 2050 as we are from 1990
kusinohki: maybe push just to try to get the on deck card??
kusinohki: it has room
samuraitiger19: @gekyouryuu no! no! bad person! none of that! shame on you...
Asimech: @Gekyouryuu Well. F.
ArmadilloAL: Oh man, I love this game.
Gekyouryuu: @samuraitiger19 I was born in 1990, you think I'm HAPPY about this?
Gekyouryuu: because I am not
kusinohki: I don't need help feeling old thank you very much!!
ArmadilloAL: There's nothing like spending the game working on canceling decay, then flopping your entire deck on the field at the end.
samuraitiger19: @gekyouryuu I was born in io
coelopteryx: it makes me feel neither particularly old nor particularly young, so i'm ok with it

Asimech: @Gekyouryuu It's one of Jupiter's moons. Surprisingly good healthcare there.
samuraitiger19: @gekyouryuu lol it's all good
RegisTKM: He's popping off!
ArmadilloAL: I once built a deck with two Cleansing Rain, but managed to never fire them off.
ArmadilloAL: Every time one was on the bottom of the deck, so it had nothing to discard, and then when I shuffled, that one was in play and the *other* one went to the bottom.
samuraitiger19: @asimech yeah but the temperatures that are worse than mercury make it so bad to live on.
ArmadilloAL: I did not win that game.

ThatLooseCake: only 5, he just got the tree
ninja_theory_ashrams: groovy
JonnyGlitch: shop smart at Fantasy Cosco
darkalter2000: 3 wild right?
Earthenone: a hootie emote would make sense, there is a history of owls, and would be a nice reminder of RQ when it is over
Juliamon: I wouldn't object to an emote of a very concerned owl. I still think Gibb deserves an emote first though.
Asimech: @ContingentCat Isn't that just how most eagle-owls look? I mean, when they're not looking like disapproving parental figures.
Sarah_Serinde: I would use a Gibb wave emote
Sarah_Serinde: Maybe that's not the best fit for his personality but I want it anyway :P
seenoham: Matt has a free growth doesn't he?
seenoham: so he goes to 4
kusinohki: baby turn do do do do do do

ninja_theory_ashrams: power of friendship
Drakas: gibb frump
ContingentCat: @Asimech fair, I'm not that familiar with eagle-owls
Asimech: Though now that I think about I think eagle-owls almost always look like they're disgusted with what you've done with your life and the "abject terror" look is only momentary.
oyleslyck: LUL

Ba_Dum_Tish: sergeSnerge
coriolis_storm: LOL
Juliamon: At least it's not the first time Serge has unintentionally stolen a meme.
Grevas13: every day I learn more about how Serge is.
Asimech: Oh, Hootie would be a "horned-owl" b/c apparently that's the term for the American ones while "eagle-owl" is for the "old world" owls with the brows.
coelopteryx: @Asimech yeah, i mean, i'll admit to having an amount of "oh hell i'm [age] what am i doing with my life" but i'm doing my best to internalize "i'm not actually Old™ yet & i have time to figure shit out"
Asimech: Also look at this "slightly-tired-derpy" owl:
JonnyGlitch: "your deck is like mine, but bad"
TemporallyAwry: !sass

oyleslyck: the video Beej is referencing -
RatherWT: I mean, Sound of Silence is amazing, and it's all (name of singer).
kusinohki: @samuraitiger19 I've watched handelabra streams playing it. I can barely keep up...
ContingentCat: yeah the Sound of silence is great, but why are we bringing up Simon and Garfunkle songs?
Gekyouryuu: @trident042 I play that with my friends occasionally. tons of fun. I REALLY enjoy playing Absolute Zero
D1cey1: That Simon and Garfunkel cover of it was really good. Kappa
chesul: yea, Matt is almost definitely going to win at this point.
DipneaDragon: I thought he had no chance :) :)
RatherWT: They're going to call Vales Matts at this point.
kusinohki: @Gekyouryuu AZ is on of my faves. I get angered when I read about people calling him "the worst hero" or whatever...
ArmadilloAL: They're Matt-styic Vales now.
Ba_Dum_Tish: @kusinohki AZs issue is Ra bones him and is a favoured hero
chesul: this is the problem with the game, the person who goes with deck thinning wins, almost universally.
Gekyouryuu: @kusinohki really? that's surprising, because I have a WAY easier time playing him than anyone else, and while I admit that sometimes I need support from friends, I still REALLY hammer most enemies with him
samuraitiger19: My friends and I played a Sentinels game where all of us played heroes with the most opportunities for shenanigans. My friend who played argent adept had to make a flow chart and the villain barely even got turn to play.
djalternative: Matt = Ral
egyptcraze: @chesul thats kinda the case with any deckbuilder tho, to be fair
Ba_Dum_Tish: At least in my playgroup
MaddogM: so I just got here to hear "You've still got a grass" a bit accusatory there Ben :P
seenoham: he has an extra growth
chesul: egyptcraze sort of, most games don't have it even close to as badly.
ninja_theory_ashrams: doesn't really matter, but Matt didn't shuffle after searching
Ba_Dum_Tish: Our group has a rule that we consider legacy as easy mode for bosses
samuraitiger19: lol which legacy?
kusinohki: legacy - good for the team... kind of boring to play
chesul: egyptcraze in this game, a mediocre thinning deck will beat a perfect deck of any other type 8/10 times.
Ba_Dum_Tish: Base one. It makes all multi hitters strong. If you have Ra to covert damage you just become invulnerable
ArmadilloAL: Yeah, I've wondered why they even printed cards with decay symbols in the stock, because no one should ever buy them.
whales9001: heyo how goes this game?
MaddogM: Hootie survived Road Quest? spoilers!
chesul: ArmadilloAL you can definitely buy them, you just need to buy something to counter the decay symbol at the same time.
samuraitiger19: @ba_dum_tish lol yeah I figured. there are just so many variants for so many heroes now. and my friend has them all.
whales9001: also is this a co-op game or are they playing against themselves?
ContingentCat: @MaddogM hootie's been on the set for a while
chesul: whales9001 it's competitive.
holir_: whales, vs.
Earthenone: competitive, but not interactive
kusinohki: @whales9001 non co-op but kind of multi-player solitaire-ish
whales9001: interesting
Ba_Dum_Tish: @samuraitiger19 I have all the hero alts as well. Everyone draws one tacyon is super strong too
djalternative: three bears in a trenchcoat
ContingentCat: that's going to be a huge trenchcoat
Ba_Dum_Tish: 3 moon wolf
kusinohki: freedom 6 tachy... so good. tend to only use her for unlocks in the video game
samuraitiger19: @ba_dum_tish ah tachyon is one of my favorites. alongside unity and setback.
chaostreader: Too bad there aren’t four bears.
chesul: whales9001 are you thinking about buying the game?
whales9001: maybe it looks like it could be like a fun time @chesul
kusinohki: I struggle with setback unless I get "looking up" in play
LoadingReadyRun: I feel like 3 bears in a trenchcoat are unclear on the purpose of the trenchcoat :P
ancientspark: Well, the 3 bears need to look cool, right?
kusinohki: are you sure it's not "3 trenchcoats in a bear"?
Ba_Dum_Tish: That is one heck of a trenchcoat
samuraitiger19: @kusinohki looking up is very key in setback's strategy
ContingentCat: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:43:05.
Earthenone: 60-90 minutes
djalternative: @LoadingReadyRun maybe they have a different purpose for the trenchcoat
Laurence72: That's a bog trench wearing a coat
kusinohki: always double the box time for a first game
Laurence72: big*
AranMathai: Well, this vod will be cursed.
chesul: whales9001 in all honesty I wouldn't recommend it, it's a really interesting game with a cool and fun gimmick, but it has a major flaw that makes replaying it hard. definitely play it a time or two if you have the option, but I think it has a quick dropoff after that.
ArmadilloAL: Except Beej literally can't buy anything.
SketchyDetails: did he forget to push?
ArmadilloAL: @SketchyDetails Can't push until his turn again.
SketchyDetails: oic
ContingentCat: this is not your blessed savanah
whales9001: @chesul interesting thanks for the info I'll probably just see if one of the lsgs around me have it so I can try it out
kusinohki: doesn't matt have a wild symbol or is that one of the bears?
JonnyGlitch: this is also a computer game right?
Laurence72: The best way to counter three bears is to Goldilocks them
PMAvers: With all that mana generation, that's probably a good point to start buying some of the powerful cards that have some decay on them.
ArmadilloAL: Yeah, you set up while the other players are going, but pushing is part of your turn.
Tiber727: Ask Goldilocks how that worked out.
chesul: whales9001 definitely do, and your play group might find it more interesting than mine did, I'm just telling you my experience with it.
ArmadilloAL: Oh right, that's the card that lets you buy a decay card.
whales9001: @chesul thanks for the info!

samuraitiger19: matt essentially has infinite mana
tergonis: the coolest
chesul: Matt has grasped the winning strat of this game.
ninja_theory_ashrams: PJSalt lrrBEN PJSalt
kusinohki: I'm guessing most of the vp cards include decay and everyone avoided the decay cards...
RassilonDND: yes, we get it matt, you like pasteries (bear claws)
Sogheim: yay this art is pretty
ArmadilloAL: VP points are not limited.
chesul: kusinohki it's more that the cards that give VP from the pool are either tiny amounts, or very expensive, and the best way to ramp cash is to get growth.
kusinohki: doesn't everyone get = turns?
ArmadilloAL: If they run out of VP, you pull more out of the "box" until it goes to start player.
PMAvers: Ben moves to Cheat Step

ArmadilloAL: "End of the Game When the tokens in the pool run out, finish playing the current round so that each player gets an equal number of turns, then the game ends. If tokens in the pool run out and a player would still gain , take them from the tokens that were left in the box."
ArmadilloAL: Copy/paste from the rulebook.
PMAvers: So Matt *will* get his turn.
Dovakey: the pool limit is just to set the end game timer basically
PMAvers: I forget if it's in the core or the expansion, there's a upgrade that's worth more points at the end of the game the more blank cards you still have in your deck.
Laurence72: It's free real estate!
kusinohki: @PMAvers guessing expansion since I don't remember seeing that card

SydPreviouslyHeadache: Thanks for the stream, and Happy Birthday Matt
Serpens77: where's the Ian animation
