At this point, the only real information I can think of that would be of more than passing interest to me would be to find out that the leak was really a hoax and it was never Venice and/or the Shoshone to begin with. But that contingency is so remote as to not really even be worth considering. I'd have preferred the leak hadn't happened, since I hate to see NDAs violated and I don't actually mind anticipation, but the fact is the announcement of Venice and the Shoshone is a mere formality at this point. And all the other questions we have (How many extra tiles do the Shoshone get? How exactly does the Pathfinder's ability work in practice? Will Venice get a Merchant of Venice or nothing if they choose the Collective Rule policy? Will G&K Ethiopia be in the Scramble for Africa scenario? etc.) are simply points of clarification rather than major news. Personally, I'd have liked to have seen the leader screen intros up on the website by now. But two weeks from tomorrow I'll be playing the game, and then I can see all the leader screens and have the answers to all of these questions anyway. In other words, the drought is still on, but the storm clouds are already on the horizon. Whether it drizzles a bit more before they get here is no longer so important.
