Ooooooooo, I just HATE IT when folks do that! In the MML at GASP, I am percieved as the best player with Killer Decks galore! But some other player with a non-descript non-focused deck will play Apocalypse and no one ever responds or retailiates. I play first turn Tropical Island then play BoP and all the *Oink!* comes flying my way until I'm dead brfore I can even get started!!!!! I once read somewhere that "Polictics" in Multiplayer are an inherent part of the game since it involves 3 or more players. In a duel, I don't think you CAN use politics. Here's an interesting way to play with three folks: Siamese Twins The active player vs the other two players. Obviously the "Teams" are in constant flux since in one turn, the person next to you, is your team-mate and then the next turn they're your enemy .
