 May 28 comment Trash an Estate or Curse your opponents? Full Version Agreed. The question is where to draw the line. I won't bother cursing against a Chapel or a Jack of All Trades. I will certainly curse against a Remodel or an Island. I'd like a more quantitative / objective way of evaluating the choice. May 17 comment In Guillotine, do Noble abilities work from the score area? No, that was all shooting from the hip--which is why I only made it a comment. May 17 comment In Guillotine, do Noble abilities work from the score area? With Master Spy, the movement doesn't depend on where he is in line, but the key word move is the same. To be wholly consistent, it could be phrased "move this card from where it is in line to the end of the line", but I think the authors chose a reasonable, natural-sounding phrasing instead (not even assuming it was a deliberate choice). May 17 comment In Guillotine, do Noble abilities work from the score area? I think the word move implies a reordering, not adding and reordering. Generally, movements in line are relative to the initial placement of a card (move it forward or backward `x` places in line), which clearly doesn't affect cards that aren't in line.

In this pattern white's diagonal is very weak, as mentioned in the first diagram here.
