comment Does mixing decks in Agricola reduce the chance of synergies?
On the other hand, the Harrow and Juggler probably have more chance of interacting with another card when all three decks are mixed together.

comment Which boardgames need expansion sets before they work properly?
Would be +1 for the main post, but I want to give a -1 to the Agricola comment, so it cancels out at +0. Our group has played Farmers of the Moor a few times, and it's certainly good, but we rather prefer the original Agricola. The diversity of strategies facilitated even by the E deck, let alone the I and K decks still in the base game, just feel more appealing. Farmers of the Moor seems to be going in a different direction to where we like Agricola.

comment What is a good opening in Blokus?
Yes, this is the way I always try to play: use the pieces that touch diagonally opposite corners of a 3x3 square to get to the centre as fast as possible. I'll occasionally slow myself down slightly by including the X as 2nd or 3rd piece (not allowed to place it 1st) because I find that one particularly hard to shift later.

comment When should you avoid a third bean field in Bohnanza?
Yes, this is my experience. In all the games of Bohnanza I've played, the first place was almost never more than 3 coins ahead of the second place, and I've pretty much never seen someone who bought a third field win.

Yick, Treasure Map is broken enough on its own, isn't it?
