Important music video note: all three videos feature the singers singing to unexpected things. In "Notion," Caleb Followill sings passionately to a brick wall (the best representation of a Nashville live music audience I've ever seen). In "Bone Jam," Jake Orral sings dispassionately, presumably to no one / someone off screen, but I'm pretty sure his lyrics are directed to the floating slice of pizza behind him. In "Here Comes my Girl," we can clearly see that the true romantic subject of the song is the absolutely fiery chemistry between Tom and Heartbreakers drummer Stan Lynch. Just look at the way they look at each other. Just look.

Maze Rats is a beautiful game! Too many games ask the DM to "wing it" but give them no support at all.

Maze Rats: "you've found a (roll) 'encoding' (roll) 'vortex'. Okay, cast it and learn all the spells in this library."

Great work Andrew- looking forward to more.

Tom Petty has some killer tracks. I wouldn’t call myself a fan and I don’t hav any records, but there are definitely a couple of tunes that I like to spool up on Spotify occasionally.

I really think Shards of Infinity is simply an unlicensed Star Realms clone with questionable balance. The rules are exactly the same, the overall play is the same and even the "buy and play at the same time" cards are taken from it or other games. But the cards are worse. There's waaaaay too much card draw and many cards are undercosted. It's one of those games that give the players what they want, not stopping to think whether or not they should want that, much less have it.

I don't think Dominion is the greatest game ever made. But the more deckbuilders I play, the more I respect its design. Just compare Laboratory (+2 cards, +1 Action, cost of five) and compare it to the same card in other games.

Love it! I was sure that shards was going to have Talking Heads "Once in a lifetime" as the song.

Great points. It should be noted that any strategies you can use successfully in other deck builders you can import directly into Shards of Infinity without any sort of modification. Get cards that let you draw cards --> win the game.
