  1. With Episilon's consume power, and two free military worlds, he could go the opposite of blind trading. He could just settle/settle early without needing to trade and get card flow from leaching others consumes.

  2. I think JR sounds brilliant and I just posted this interview to my twitter feed

  3. Does he want to settle the windfall world turn one? You know the player to his left will pick trade to draw four cards. I do like settling the military production world on turn two because the player to his right may produce for JR.
