      Hmm, that sounds familiar. After all, if she's not going to play it,
      then the space it takes up doesn't count, right?

      Mark followed up with this about Marracash:

      And to take this thread full circle, results like this are precisely
      what I hope to avoid this year by playing games at least twice. My first
      attempt at Mexica, for example, gave me plenty to work with during my
      second play a week later in which I surprised everyone (twice!) by
      spending extra action points and bringing the round to a close.

      The experience with Primordial Soup has proved quite so helpful yet, but
      at least now I know to avoid the combination of Substitution and
      Struggle for Survival.
