By day (and night, far too often) I'm the Operations Manager at Digital Motorworks.

Most of the rest of the time I'm with my family or gaming, or thinking about gaming.

Currently playing a 14th level Shifter Paladin in a 4th edition DnD campaign. I'm also just starting to run a campaign of my own.

Willing to play boardgames whenever I can find people willing to lose to me :)

I picked up the app for my iPad due to a recommendation here, I think from you. Thanks! I bought the boardgame the next week.

Can't reroll skulls in multiplayer? Ooops! I see I have to reread the rules a bit closer. Thanks!

Good list! I'd add Apothecary (non-terminal) as well on the plus side.

@keithjgrant - you are correct. I substantially reworked my answer to clarify my point that coppersmith will beat "big money" and removed the confusing/untrue copper for silver substitution. Thank you for the feedback.

@Rob - Erk, that line is actually the odds of getting $6+ from a hand where smithy and silver were bought on turns 1-2. Nuts - originally I was comparing coppersmith to other cards before simplifying my argument. I'll edit the post to clarify that for now and will try to run the numbers again soon.

@Rob - that's a good question, pulling up my google spreadsheet. It is entirely possible that my 3:30AM analysis was flawed. Yes, last night I was completely affected by this -> xkcd.com/386

comment How can I effectively use the Coppersmith?
@Rob - I've included the odds for Big money to get $6 or more during turns 3-4. As you can see, having a Coppersmith+copper gives a 70% higher chance of entering turn 5 with a gold. Gold leads to more gold. More gold leads to provinces. Therefore I believe this strategy will beat big money (on average).
