BEST AGENDA of 2017: Government Takeover scored by @Marsellus:

  • during Euro Championships

  • while on the stream

  • scored the hard way, IIRC behind double Archer

  • when he was on 0 points so that the game continued

  • and with a click to spare, so he could use the click for Takeover’s ability
