Okay, I get to use Blue starter, which I’m comfortable with, but it’s also…uh…lackluster in certain regards. I see we’ve got a Fruit Ninja on the board and that seems telling and also mildly threatening. I think we have to be worried about HASTE and sneaks! Maybe I go for a Tower and Eyes of the Chancellor? I’m going to be worried about Spark taking out my Inspector so we go for a Tower straightaway.

@bansa’s turn!

Since Tower is your first tech / add-on, it costs 1 more gold to build.

Oops. Poor Tower.

I’ll Build Tech I instead and move the Building Inspector’s Patrol.

Okay, maybe we’re slightly okay? They can wither the Spectral Hound for 3 gold. That seems perfectly fine for me.

Well, I’ve cocked this up royally.

You only spent 2 gold to build Tech II.

I’m counting 17 cards from your economy and board info. Looks like you are missing a card in your discard? My guess is Lawful Search? I miss that one quite often.

No, it’s actually my Scribe. I have no idea how to fix that.

Oh I see you had to reshuffle when you drew for technician

I think you rewind back to beginning of T5 -> add Scribe to discard -> reshuffle and draw for technician before tech cards -> tech cards -> redo T5 would be the correct order @charnel_mouse or @FrozenStorm can you please advise?

I agree, redo the reshuffle and go from there.
