I bought a couple of cards. Woodall is up.

Also Woodall, you may have missed it but we're playing with open hands since who has what cards is trackable. It's just easier for everyone to keep their cards shown so people don't have to track it.

Also, my character seems really shitty. 3 extra gold once vs half price the whole game? What's the catch?

Your character would've been better had Mike not cut everyone's gold by 1/2 (rounding down) at the start of the game. So basically, you only got 1 of your 3 gold. Often, the 1/2 off is better than it looks. It only applies to one type of card, so it's only helpful if you need that type of card. To really take advantage of it, you have to commit to a strategy to exploit that type of card. So the benefit lasts throughout the game, but it potentially limits your freedom of action.

Where at?

Dallas.

Ok, looks like I may have some time to do my turn tonight, packing is going well.

Are we putting played cards on the main table?  Has nobody played a card to the table yet?

I believe we're playing cards to the table. No one that I've seen has played one yet. I used to live in Fort Worth, nice place!

Ok, I bought a card and sold a card, then speculated.

Blue / l'amour is up.
