This one is a lot of fun for

This one is a lot of fun for two or three players, where some are trying to buy out three piles before others can race to more Victory Points. It has a couple of different strategies to try, and the winners are generally those who disguise their plan for the first half of the game, then go crazy on buying out provinces or on buying out three piles, such as estates, silk roads, and great halls.

We played this again last

We played this again last night, and my wife was about ready to burn my Ill-gotten Gains cards. Hey, the title gives you a hint about that blackbird.
