We're super stoked we got such a positive response on the series, and believe you me we will be continuing. We want to ramp into doing Classic reviews soonish, but that's probably a ways away right now!
Yeah, Cloud as the current mechanic makes sense; we were just saying that that would have made Spike make more sense. I'm not super convinced that the "focus" interpretation works; it doesn't explain why only icebreakers can contribute to the spike, and it also doesn't make sense of the upcoming cycle, decoder and killer, with the same ability. Flavour has to be just as cohesive as mechanics, after all
And yeah, Paige is clearly a reference to Silicon Valley. We hadn't seen it, but I checked out the pilot yesterday, and that's clearly the case. Good to get that mystery solved!
