I play at being a board game designer every now and then, and I'm so delighted when I can take a concept/idea/mechanic from a discarded game and insert it brilliantly into a new one that might actually have the potential chance of maybe working, sort of, if it doesn't suck. But if it does? More meat for the grinder. It's all sausage in the end. But I've had some darn tasty sausage in my time.

So should we watch out for their more modern version, the neo-professionatals?

It's irresponsible to make up words on your own; Please leave that up to the professionatals.

I'm deriving an odd amount of entertainment by listening to the MP3 sync'd up with the YouTube video.

I lived in my Island Sanctuary. Behind my Moat, if at all possible. I loved those cards. I combined that with: Tetravus (flying artifact 1/1 with 3 1/1 counters that could become flying creatures), Castle (all untapped +0/2), Life Chisel (sacrifice creature during upkeep to gain life = toughness) and Argivian Archaeologist (recover artifact from your graveyard to your hand). My favorite game was when I got to 230 life before my opponent gave up. When it failed it was a quick death, but when it worked it was so much fun.

+1. I highly recommend Dominion. Amazing replayability. The expansion I'm not sure on yet but the base set is mad gold, so to speak. And I used to have a full set of Unlimited MtG cards... with some of the cards being from the Alpha or Beta release. I sold them for farrrr too little. And it the game's younger days (Arabian Nights) our local group had a deck called the Funky Trapezoid: Lotus, Moxen, Birds of Paradise, Manabarbs, Power Leak, etc. Take damage if you play land, tap land, or don't tap land. It was evil. And would be worth mad bank today.
