Fun variety of plays; all

Fun variety of plays; all cards useful! Played twice; once as two-player and once and three-player. The two-player game, all kingdom cards were used; the second time, Upgrade was never bought. The most useful cards were Smuggler, Masquerade, Governor, and Steward. Several ways to avoid the Embargo penalty by gaining a card without buying it. Some familiarity (6 or more games) with Dominion required to do well at this.

I also liked this because the "recommended sets" don't include any with Seaside and Intrigue, and I really enjoy many of the Intrigue cards.

Overall one of the most fun Kingdom setups I've played!
