Title: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: BaruMonkey on December 16, 2011, 01:24:42 pm
EDIT: To get in on the fun and embed images in your post, paste a direct link to the image itself's web address within the img tags.  For example, embedding an image generated from quickmeme will look like this: [ img]i.qkme.me/3pwx53.jpg[/img]. Just remove the space in the first img tag and change 3pwx53 to your image number. (Right click > Image properties, or whatever it's called in your browser.  You can then get the direct link.)

I just got the idea, and I had to make it a reality.

Post by: mischiefmaker on December 20, 2011, 04:08:25 pm
Yeah, I know -- Farmland triggers on buy, not on gain.

I really meant "...farmland your farmland into a province (on a later turn)", but it didn't have quite the same ring to it.

It was an exaggeration, and the game was in person, not in iso.  Still felt like fifty, though.

You're right! Take all the women away for safety!

5 hours later
Villager: uhh... Sir?
Me: Yes?
Villager: Well... we told the women to go away and well...
Me: Hmm?
Villager.. They all went away... to the Ponies....
Me: WHAT? NOOOOO! Please tell me we at least kept the Witches.
Villager: Well... one stayed... but uhh....
Me: Yes?
Villager: She wants gifts or she will leave too.
Me: Fine... tell the Witch she can rig as many competitions for herself to win as she wants. Free of charge bla bla bla. And, if anyone reports her or w/e she is allowed to do whatever she wants with them outside of lethal action unless they are obviously with the ponies. Also, be warned, teenage boys have been infected by the Pony Plague. Just check out this scout report. But be warned... it is terrifying.

Technically, it shouldn't have to, though it probably could use a clarification.  Possession specifically indicates that you gain any cards the possessed player would have gained.  It says nothing about any sorts of tokens.  If you played a Pirate Ship while possessing your opponent and used the attack, your opponent would gain the PS token too.

Good Guy Greg just doesn't work in 2p in terms of in game interactions.

Anything good for you is bad for him and vice versa.

(Game situation)
Smoking Face
(Takes supotimal move)

My inner game theory knowing nerd can't let this fly.

What non-zero sum good can Greg really do?  Encourage opponents to resign when he knows he has them beat with a torturer lock down, rather than encourage them to suffer?  Not play at one move per 2 minutes when losing?  Gently explain an opponents bad decision after the game?

Of course, 3p+ can be more interesting:

plays Spy, has you discard Tunnel repeatedly, later steals some Gold from you.  You both might get an advantage over the 3rd player in that situation.

Plays Militia after your Council Room in 3p+?  The 3rd player discards 3, you only discard 2.

As far as I can tell, BM/Milita beats Milita/Tunnel (followed by money and possibly more Tunnels) on 4/3 openings pretty comfortably according to the simulator. I feel like I'm allowed to ruin the joke as I had a leoinception joke of my own ruined by the stupid simulator earlier ITT :)

If you say it's true, I'll believe you (never having run anything by any simulator before).  +1 internets for passing along the joke-ruining.   ;D :P

What bots did you use? If I just take the default militia bot in geronimoo's simulator and add in a single tunnel before silver, it appears to crush the default militia bot nearly 70/30.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: Geronimoo on January 24, 2012, 03:46:22 pm
Yep, Militia+Tunnel crushes Militia+Silver. Maybe you're using an older version (with a bug?). Here (http://users.telenet.be/jeroenaga/dominion.jnlp)'s the latest release.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card

Out of interest, how does Tunnel + Silver fare against either of the above?
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: HiveMindEmulator on January 24, 2012, 06:11:51 pm
Tunnel with no militia beats militia+tunnel, since the militia guy's tunnel is useless. But if you open militia/silver and don't get any additional militia, the tunnel guy can't reliably use his tunnel and is behind.

More concisely:
single militia > single tunnel > militia + tunnel > mass militia > single militia

"Single tunnel", if faced against single-militia-BM without tunnels, will either buy additional tunnels or buy a militia, transitioning out of single tunnel.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: HiveMindEmulator on January 25, 2012, 01:04:50 am
Of course it depends on what there is to transition to. Single militia should add some other stuff too. But I think it's better to have an extra militia than to be buying tunnels (from the start) with the hope of activating them off of your opponents single militia.

It does. It's basically perfect. Takes a second maybe to program in the buy rules (I don't want anybody disputing me on that fact now) but it's a worthwhile download. Here you go: http://dominionsimulator.wordpress.com/

Just for the record:

2.  Largely because I didn't expect anyone else to think that hard about it either.

3.  Engine might beat BM+ on that board, when played well, but nobody has ever definitively proved that Leo plays Dominion well.

4.  The point of the meme wasn't supposed to be that simple strategies beat complex strategies, but to capture that feeling you get when you've played a whole bunch of cards in your turn but it ended up as something of a damp squib,  then your opponent has a much simpler turn that is ultimately more successful.  I'm sure we have all been on both ends of that one.

Better than turn 5.
Why?

Not challenging, just trying to learn.

If I had to take a stab, I would say that on T5, the collided cards stay in your discard for longer as the deck was reshuffled to deal out the entirety of the hand that turn.  Is that correct?  Or is there something else here?
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: jonts26 on April 17, 2012, 03:30:22 am
I mean like, you miss both cards on turn 3/4, having them collide on 5. That's pretty much worst case scenario.

In general, likely turn 3 is worse because early bad luck is worse than later bad luck.

That's pretty much it.

Cards you draw on T5 "miss the reshuffle", because you have to shuffle to draw your hand of 5. Generally, you get to play a card you bought once per deck cycle (ignoring weird cases like Scheme). If it misses the reshuffle, you get to play it once in both deck cycles.

Bah someone else can probably explain this better. There's a Deck Control article somewhere out there that goes into more depth.

EDIT: Ninja'd whyyyyyy.
Idk if turn 3 collision is any worse than turn 4 collision though. Later on early collision is probably worse, but turn 3 vs turn 4 collisions probably don't matter?

Ah, now I get it. I (and I assume paddy) was thinking that you got one of them on 3, the other on 4, and then they collided on 5. This would better than collision on 3, while getting neither on 3 and 4 would be worse.

And, to answer the most recent question, I assume that collision on 3 is absolutely equivalent to collision on 4 (excluding any weirdness with other cards).

source (http://councilroom.com/goals) (it's called BOMminator)

edit: realized the original (http://i.qkme.me/3p10ud.jpg) was technically incorrect about "win rate".
BOMminator allows for cards such as Ill Gotten Gains...which probably makes up much of that small percentage.

One of my first councilroom "achievements" was this, and I wondered how I got it.  Then I remembered one of my first Isotropic games was my brother and I playing with a custom Kingdom with no actions, haha.  It was actually pretty fun to play one game like that.

I'm perfectly comfortable with multiplayer Dominion - just have to realize that piles empty faster.  I feel like your doggy more when playing Magic:  Who do I attack?  Is he gonna spell away my creatures?  What am I doing?
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: michaeljb on June 24, 2012, 06:45:45 pm
I feel like there's more to it than just watching piles, because the game as a whole just goes faster*. You don't have quite as much time to get a good engine firing.

edit: Also the way Attacks play is quite a bit different and more dependent on seating order.

*especially in 4p where there are only 3 Provinces per player instead of 4.

The banned card was trusty steed.  The updated ban was gold, and I didn't buy it, although I would have for sure.

Edit: Game Link:

         Captain_Frisk plays a Contraband.
         ... pkbrooklyn prohibits Captain_Frisk from buying Trusty Steeds.
         Captain_Frisk plays 3 Coppers.
         Captain_Frisk buys a Duchy.

In retrospect, I should have bought a fairgrounds.

I think he said on the AMA that he wanted things to function exactly as written where possible, there was a victory card that counted instances of a card you named, donald wanted it to automatically choose the best one, but dougz says as written you choose a card so he made you pick a card. So in a few places iso will let you do things that you wouldn't normally do because well, you can.

All Contraband says is "name a card".  Just like Wishing Well.  You can proscribe "Black Lotus" or wish for "the Ace of Spades" too.  Sadly Isotropic's interface does not include a text field for such situations ...

And this is why it is so funny - that he's gone out of his way to include 1 subset of cards that can't be purchased, but exclude others (all dominion cards not currently in the game)

I think the next time someone plays contraband in real life I'm going to name Phoenix.

I suppose it is because the same logic is used for Wishing Well. It would be more going out of your way to have two different name-any-card functions.

Black Lotus

Trash this card

Next time I play with Contraband in RL and I have no idea what to proscribe due to the excess of choices, I am going to proscribe the Ace of Diamonds. And, when I've drawn my deck and play wishing well, I will totally wish for the Queen of Spades.

Just to be overly pedantic and destroy everyone's good time here... I'm pretty sure that "a card" within the rules of Dominion is defined as "A Dominion card." So while you can proscribe (and wish for) cards that aren't in the Kingdom, or ever cards from sets you don't have, you do still have to choose a Dominion card.

MTG sort of covers this concept when talking about how changelings are "every creature type." It is specified that this means it is any creature type that has ever been referenced by any magic card anywhere. But it is not a creature type of "Young Witch," because "Young Witch" is not an MTG creature type.

Luckily for us MtG rules do not apply to Dominion.

I've seen DXV mention somewhere that you can wish for/proscribe anything you want. Does not have to be a Dominion card.

After some trouble trying to make attractive graphs with Dominion cards as points.  This was so nice/easy with Race for the Galaxy (with context, the top graph actually makes a lot of sense if you've played the game 5 times).

The only other one I can think of is a stretch - you "gain" a win, which is "ill-gotten" by using that strategy.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: Kirian on July 15, 2012, 07:59:21 pm
I was referring to the fact that IGG, the card, and I GG, the pun, are both answers to the question as posed; the card is the only method of performing the action described.  As opposed to Harem/Cellar, where there is only wordplay and no relation to the game.

Someone find me a better word than entendre here, please; I guess I could just say it works on two levels, as opposed to the other puns which are just plain ol' puns.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: clb on July 15, 2012, 08:24:40 pm
I think you are right, Kirian. Puns are generally a form of a double entendre (or a skewed version at least). I think it would be accurate to call it a meme with a double entendre (double entendre means "two meanings", right? IGG the card, and I GG as in you win).
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: theory on July 15, 2012, 08:54:33 pm
I thought you meant it as, "IGG" as in "igghhhh, I can't believe your luck!".
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: HiveMindEmulator on July 16, 2012, 12:46:47 am
I thought you meant it as, "IGG" as in "igghhhh, I can't believe your luck!".
lol. I also thought of that after I posted in and saw it. The idea was that IGG is both often the correct play (since obviously your opponent is going IGG) and that you might also "gg", but I knew someone would read it as an onomatopoeic sound of frustration.

I think what Kirian is trying to say is that I didn't just put some random scenario as the question and have the humor in the fact that IGG is both a card and something you'd say, but rather I chose a question such that IGG the card could also be a reasonable answer in the absence of a pun.

Anyway, that's a lot of analysis for a bad pun coon. In retrospect, I should have perhaps also replaced "you" in the question with "I". I'd update it if it were an article on IGG puns, but it's just a bad pun meme...

I'm sure this has been discussed before but I don't feel like searching back >_>. I had to use some convoluted method involving Microsoft Paint and Imageshack. So yes, a better method would be preferred.

Right click > Image properties, or whatever it's called in your browser.  You can then get the direct link.

If that is what you're doing then I don't know, because it works for me.

Technically false because TR, as worded, forces you to play the Poor House twice, each one giving -$5.

Isn't there a risk of schemes blocking golems in the combo ? I mean, if you've one golem + one scheme in hand, if your golem immediately draws scheme + CH (or without discarding the whole of your deck), it is blocked, right ?

Why not? 5 FG is a single Province buy. Gold provides $1 less than an activated FG, is more consistent, and $9 today and Gold-Gold-3x??? tomorrow is a great position for consecutive Provinces. The only thing that might give you pause is if you're in a Colony game.

I was referring to the fact that IGG, the card, and I GG, the pun, are both answers to the question as posed; the card is the only method of performing the action described.  As opposed to Harem/Cellar, where there is only wordplay and no relation to the game.

Someone find me a better word than entendre here, please; I guess I could just say it works on two levels, as opposed to the other puns which are just plain ol' puns.

I think what you're saying is it's an actual pun, and this thread has lowered your standards.

It's not supposed to go in your hand. Trader makes you "gain a silver." It doesn't care what you were going to gain before, or where it would have gone. All that matters is following what Trader says at that point, and "gain a silver" always means to your discard pile.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: jotheonah on August 11, 2012, 01:15:14 pm
So the moral of the story is, if you play Explorer (or Bureaucrat or JoaT) and reveal a Trader to gain Silver instead of Silver just to be funny, the joke is on you.

Sounds like they took a page from WotC's playbook.  Before the official announcement of 4e, the WotC webpage was replaced with a timer, which counted down to a massive failure as the website crashed from the traffic and couldn't be brought back up for 3-4 days.

The difference being that with 4e, at least you could buy physical copies of the books.  WOTC's web presence wasn't the core of their business.  Goko's... is.

The problem here is that an MMO involves high-intensity server code and hundreds of thousands of people. This is a card game for which only 7,858 people previously had an account to play online. It's not like they're being inundated with unprecendented traffic that would be sufficient to knock out 90% of sites on the Internet.

That number is way too low - it's just the number on the iso leaderboard RIGHT NOW. Which doesn't include people from other sites, or people who haven't played in the last X (maybe 7) days. Well more people than that have played dominion online.
On the other hand, yeah, MMOs are waaaaaaaaaay bigger.

It's not that their servers are being overloaded or anything like that. Right now, the public can't enter at all, but the private beta is still running smoothly, last I checked.

It's hard to guess what problems they're having. Maybe account registration is having trouble? Or maybe expansion-purchasing is broken, although they could still opt to launch with just the base set in that case.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: Taco Lobster on August 16, 2012, 07:17:01 pm
Sometimes I forget how pedantic this place can get.
 
Okay, work with me and let's see if we can identify the salient points of the analogy.

The public launch of goko is like the launch of 4e in that they both were announced at GenCon, both directed people to a website and both caused the website to crash.  The public launch of goko differs from the launch of 4e in many material ways, including the fact that they happened in different years, were done by different companies, were different products, and are completely different games.

The public launch of goko is like the launch of an MMO in that they are both software products, subject to heavy traffic at launch, which can cause delays or failures in using the product.   The public launch of goko differs from the launch of an MMO in many material ways, including the fact that MMOs are typically of a much larger scale and have much more complex code.

Nonetheless, I would submit that the salient feature of goko for purposes of the prior posts (it doesn't work) is similar to the salient feature of the WotC website at the 4e announcement (it didn't work) and MMOs at launch (they often don't work), likely due to either (a) unexpectedly high demand for the product or (b) poor preparation for regular demand.  Given that Dominion has helped spawn/inspire an entire sub-segment of games, that there are multiple Dominion clone apps available on various platforms that seem to be doing fairly well, the launch was announced at one of the largest concentrations of their customers on the planet, and that many of us have waited for baited breath for an official version (no disrespect to Iso intended), I suspect that goko is a victim of Dominion's own success.

Edit: Great, and now blueblimp has to go and post something that disproves my snotty post.  Maybe I should listen next time the forum says "someone posted something that makes you sound like an idiot, are you sure you don't want to read it before hitting submit."

I've checked several FLGS in the greater Seattle area, and none of them have copies, yet. I know there are a few other forumers from around here - anyone know who might have a copy now? (I'm hoping to play this weekend before going out of town next week.)

My guess is that some combination of goko / Jay / DXV need to approve such a release.  My guesses are that the chances of that approval if it was fully up to each party would be 0% / 25% / 50%.

having dark ages at release was supposed to be a big feature of goko. isotropic having it as well, especially with some of goko's problems thus far, would pull users (especially this community!) away towards isotropic. and goko really needs that solid user base, especially early on, to attract more people.  people paying for a product will want to see lots of other players in the lobbies.

But you'd still another Tactician so you can draw the extra cards from madman in a tactician turn.
So yeah, you need a Necropolis in that playing area. I just didn't care about that, because I thought it was self-evident and I don't have fun cutting out more card images so everything I played is in that play area.
It is more about the concept then about how exactly one manages to get there.

Edit: I understand now what you mean, but actually this is supposed to be the turn where you gain the Madman and topdeck it with Royal Seal after playing a Tactician and buying nothing.

@Grujah, from a Hermit. It is not in the playing area because the player had to trash him by buying nothing to get the Madman.

I you Steward for +$2 to buy a Gold, the opportunity cost is not trashing 2 Coppers, and a $2 buy. So if you trash 2 Coppers and buy a Cache (for $2), that's basically the same as if you +$2 and buy a Gold.

And the point of my remark about trash-for-benefit cards was that with them being present a Cache card for $5 is not as good as a Gold card for $6.

So I remember a good bit of discussion about what's the best Scout option in that scenario... it sounds like the argument here is that you obviously should take the Gold; because if Cache is balanced at $5, then it should be worth using your otherwise $2 turn to get the equivalent?

Of course, my counter-argument would be that going from 7 coppers to 9 coppers in your deck is not as big of a change as going from 7 coppers to 5 coppers. Percentage-wise, at least.

You're trashing 2 copper then buying the $2 cache, you'll have 7 coppers either way.

You're trashing 2 copper then buying the $2 cache, you'll have 7 coppers either way.

If Cache literally did cost $2, yes. But it doesn't, which means you will be buying some other random $2 (or likely nothing). The comparison then is between buying a Cache under normal circumstances, and buying Gold with Steward + 4 copper.

Coppers aren't all bad, they're better than Scout most of the time.  ;)

I love the Ruined Scout which I believe someone posted earlier:

Ruined Scout - Action

+1 Action.

Reveal the top 4 cards of your deck. Put the revealed Victory cards into your hand. Put the other cards on top of your deck in any order.

Open Thief/Swindler
Turn 3: Play Necropolis, Swindler and Thief.
And if my opponent opens Mint, I might pick up a Thief. I think that's not a bad play.

I think I would ragequit Dominion forever if that happened to me. Terrible. You'd be left with a deck with just 2 Copper and 3 Shelters.

If Swindler hits Shelters and Poor House isn't out, do they just die?

Yeah. Same thing happens if, for instance, Mining Villages are the only $4 card in the kingdom, and the pile's empty.

Speaking of which, Swindler probably got a bit worse on the whole, now. I haven't played with it in a Dark Ages game, and it still sucks to lose a great card to Swindler, but... Dark Ages cards do mitigate the punishment.

Possession technically gives your opponent an extra turn.  In particular, if they then play an outpost on their real turn after the possessed turn, they do not gain an additional turn.  Although they also clean up their outpost and only draw a hand of three cards.

The best is to play multiple Possessions, and then on their last possessed turn, play their Outpost.  Then they only get three cards for their real turn.

@The last one:

Why would it be particularly mad to get rid of a Necropolis by putting it in the way of a Swindler? Sure, Overgrown Estate is even more attractive for it, but getting rid of a Necropolis should improve your deck in most cases as well - and even if you'd rather like to keep it if you had a choice, it will still often be the best alternative - the Swindler is an attack card which often hurts, after all.

But I thought that you put up to 4 VP cards in your hand so you can reorder either 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 cards which means that there are 1 + 1 + 2 + 6 + 24 = 34 ways to reorder 0 to 4 cards.
I didn't count 0 at first.

That was my fist guess how you arrived at 33... ;D

And indeed IMO you are right (now), 34 should be the number!

It is a different thing to put 4 cards back than to put 3 cards back and leave one in your hand.
So that makes 4!+3!+2!+1!+0! = 34 different possibilities to put cards back.

However, I guess one could argue that you can't "choose" the 34 possibilities yourself because you *must* put all revealed victory cards in your hand.

So ChocophileBenj's wording is ambigous!

You never have a choice between 33 options, because you can't choose how many cards you can put back. So you'll either have only 1 choice, or 2 choices, or 6 choices, or 24 choices, depending on how many victory cards you find.

That's very true.  I was thinking if you could manage to get KC/Trader/Silver/Silver/Silver in a later turn, you turn 3 silver into 9.  Which feeds Feodum even more.

With the fortress example, you'd get even more.  You would effectively play Trader 6 times, getting 4 Silvers each time for a total of 24 Silvers.  But hey, I was trying to modify Qvist's into a beneficial use of KC-KC-Beggar-Beggar.

I'm afraid I don't get SirPeebles version at all. Why would playing KC-KC-Beggar-Beggar-Trader have any significance for Fedoums? Trashing Coppers with a Trader doesn't gain you any Silvers.

KC-KC-Beggar-Fortress-Trader wouldn't do any silvery good either, by the way - the Fortress would have to be KCd after the Trader(s).

You play beggar with trader in hand to gain silvers instead of coppers. So you'd gain 18 silvers with KC/KC/Beggar/Beggar/Trader.

But not 18 silvers in hand.

You still gain 18 silvers for feodums which increases their value by 6 each...

That's very true.  I was thinking if you could manage to get KC/Trader/Silver/Silver/Silver in a later turn, you turn 3 silver into 9.  Which feeds Feodum even more.

This is worse than using the Beggars though.  You would play Trader three times on three Silvers, gaining 9 Silver but losing 3 for a net gain of 6.

And with your one buy, grab a Copper, but reveal Trader for a 19th Silver instead  ;)

With the fortress example, you'd get even more.  You would effectively play Trader 6 times, getting 4 Silvers each time for a total of 24 Silvers.  But hey, I was trying to modify Qvist's into a beneficial use of KC-KC-Beggar-Beggar.

So you trash Fortress 6 times for 24 silver, then still get to play it with KC, getting three more cards and six extra actions?  Dang.

Ah, right, King's Courts *may* choose actions and don't have to as Throne Rooms. (So you don't have to play the Trader as a fifth card.)

Let's assume you play this !!!

In that case it might still have been a good and not that much of a Brian-y thing to play it:
1. We don't know if the opponent couldn't have activated his Menagerie with 5 cards in hand as well (so that the Goons would have potentially hurt him). That would have been less ambiguous if he had played f. e. Festival+Library instead of Menagerie.
2. But even if it doesn't hurt the opponent, Procession-playing the Goons has earned Brian +$4 and two extra buys that turn. Which might well make trashing the Goons worthwhile. 8)

You were actually kicked out?  I don't think you missed much.

I left in week 3, after my first overnight campout. As the FNG, I got assigned the breakfast dishes. No prob, but an Eagle scout gave me the cast iron skillet back to wash again, saying it was "greasy".  I figured that if an Eagle scout didn't know how to properly maintain the seasoning on a cast iron pan, he didn't know much about his gear.  I juxtapose this with your comment because I find the irony delicious.  All of the gay men (and women) in my life knew how to treat a cast iron skillet at an age younger than this nimrod.

In all fairness to younger people like myself (I've gotten an idea of your age elsewhere) (and I'm not all that young), most of us didn't use cast iron skillets as kids.  That's no defense of the idiot in your troop though.

Sorry, sometimes I forget how old I am.  My story is from the 70's.

Picture a frying pan, cast out of pure iron, so it's heavy.  In the days before Teflon (TM) or other non-stick pans, it was the Lexus of pans. (Many are treasured (and fought after) family heirlooms, passed down for generations, and a lot of that is because it takes a while to properly "season" or condition one).  Once properly seasoned, they are non-stick, and their heaviness ensures very uniform heat distribution.  However, using soap to get rid of the "greasy" would get rid of the seasoning, and make the pan virtually useless.

ENOUGH OF THE SCOUTS AND CAST-IRON SKILLETS!

This post is entirely in jest. I do not mind scout jokes, and I enjoy beating boy scouts over the head with iron skillets. However, on behalf of the majority of people on this thread, I am here to say WE WANT MORE MEMES!

I thought it was funny since we first learned the company was called Funsockets but then the company changed to go by Goko. It's not very funny, but this thread was in desperate need of a meme, and it's the best I had at the time. Now we're analyzing meme's again, man, this thread isn't what it used to be.

It's saying opening Embassy to give the opponent who opened Mint a Silver (thereby giving him more than $2 to spend next turn) is insane.

The issue is opening Embassy after I open Mint; that Silver you're giving me means a lot more than it normally would.

It's specifically in response to the opponent's Mint opening. Your opponent just completely screwed his game up by ensuring that he could do nothing at all for a couple turns. By opening Embassy, you save him from his horribleness. It might not quite cost you the game, but it will probably turn a sure victory into a regular contest.

According to the simulators, Mint wins about 28% of the time. That's with Mint always going first, both players always getting 5/2 in that order.

I briefly tried adding in some Copper buy rules, but it only made it worse, and that already went against the spirit of Insanity Wolf so I stopped trying.

Yeah, but what would the sims say about Mint / nothing vs Silver / Silver, instead of vs Embassy / nothing? I'd assume Mint has much less than 28% chance then.

The sim doesn't Insanity-Wolf-play Embassy correctly.

Congrats. Over the past week I have begun to believe for the first time that I can make it to 40. I hit 38 a few days ago. Both 2 days ago and yesterday I had a good win-rate against pretty high-level people on average, (including beating Rabid!) which I thought for sure would push me to 39... but nope, still 38. :(

I'm pretty sure 40 is my ceiling and very happy with it. I mean, there are ~8000 registered users on the leaderboard - all active since Iso removes inactive accounts - and being in the top 50 or so is quite an achievement for me.

What makes getting a high ranking even harder is the fact that you have to sidestep so many mine fields. I mean, I accept pretty much any registered match and even lvl 1's can beat me if they open 5/2 Witch over my measly 4/3.

And then there are diminishing returns. Going from lvl 1 to lvl 10 is super easy, from 10 to 20 so-so, from 20 to 30 you need to at least know which cards might be good, from 30-40 increasingly difficult and so on. And because the higher you get, the more opponents are below you, the more difficult it gets to increase your lvl.

Since I had a good run yesterday I'm even at lvl 41 now, woohoo!!

And just in time, too. I don't think I will be playing on Goko much when it goes live, so at least I've had a good run.  ;D

That's a rather potent combo.  Even against a skilled player, I feel that Bishop Fortress can easily be the dominant strategy.

In reference to the Inception above:

You buy something before you gain it.
The Mint effect and the Talisman effect happen at the same time.  Therefore you can choose to resolve the Talisman first.  So you do get two Mints.
However, Royal Seal says "when you gain."  The Royal Seal is trashed when you buy the Mint, so it is no longer in play when the Mint is actually gained.  You can't put the Mints on top of your deck.

When you buy something, you also gain that card, so the moment you buy Mint, you have also gained it. So, all abilities go off at once and you choose the order to resolve. So, yes, you can use Royal Seal to put Mint on top of your deck, but the treasures are still trashed. At least, I think that works.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: michaeljb on November 19, 2012, 12:43:06 am
-play Royal Seal, Quarry, Talisman
-buy Mint
-choose Talisman's buy effect
--gain another copy of Mint (it only costs $3 thanks to quarry)
--royal seal is in play, top deck that Mint
-do Mint's buy effect, trashing the treasures
-gain the Mint you bought

Net result: quarry, royal seal, talisman in trash, one mint in discard, one mint on top of the deck.

Net result from Goko's faulty implementation: treasures in trash, one mint on top of the deck.

Talisman gains you the extra copy right when you're resolving it; it doesn't wait for you to gain the card you bought.

Inception Leo is only expecting one mint to be top decked, but he should still be gaining two Mints.


Edit: how Goko does it:
-Play the treasures
-buy mint
-can top-deck mint with royal seal
-treasures trashed

Another edit: tl;dr: you buy a card (and handle when-you-buy events) and then you gain it (and handle when-you-gain events)

When you buy something, you also gain that card, so the moment you buy Mint, you have also gained it.

No, buy time is separate from gain time. When you buy something, you *then* gain it, *assuming* it's still okay to gain it after resolving all the on-buy effects. That's kind of why cards bother to make the distinction.

In fact, these timings aren't even necessarily consecutive: the "when you would gain" effect of Trader can trigger in between.

i.e. I'M RIGHT.

edit: Except one copy WOULD go on top of your deck because it's gained when you buy Mint.  The copy that you actually bought would go in your discard pile.  Because it's gained after your buy it.  I SWEAR THIS MAKES SENSE.

I didn't say "the Gold pile never empties"  I was skeptical that the Gold pile could empty, yet Remodel was present, at least one player purchased it (and if it was such a slow game, both players purchased Remodel if there was no better way of exploiting Gold gain, and if there was a better way of exploiting Gold gain the Provinces are even more likely to be gone) yet no one had Remodelled more than 6 of the 30 Golds into Provinces.

I prefer to think of it as a feature. Because otherwise, you have to choose to resolve Alchemist cleanup first, for every single Alchemist.

I suppose there's a difference because your Potion can't be discarded off the top of your deck if you play it right, but whatever.

99% sure the books never say he died. they repeatedly use language such as "fell" instead. that tipped it all off to me pretty early.

ex:"'Alas! ' said Aragorn. `Gandalf the Grey fell into shadow. He remained in Moria and did not escape.'"

Yeah, I saw the movie before I'd read the books (read all 3 before Two Towers came out though), and I never thought for a minute that Gandalf was dead, mostly because of what a major character he was in both the Hobbit and LOTR.

If you read The Hobbit first you wouldn't think Gandalf was really that strong, and you wouldn't put it past tolkien to get rid of the last character from that story after leaving bilbo behind.

If you read The Hobbit first, you'd never think the Ring was an Evil Device used to control the world that had to be destroyed in a volcano. Just a magic ring with a super nifty ability and no drawbacks. Then you read the LotR-trilogy and you can't even put it on without being noticed by some creepy eye in a tower.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: Davio on December 01, 2012, 02:59:01 am
Well, if I recall correctly, even in the beginning, the power of the ring wasn't known.
Gandalf spent several years coming to the shire and leaving again, diving into all kinds of books, until he founds out.

Of course, he immediately recognizes it in the movie.

And when Bilbo used it as a "party trick" (my book knowledge is inadvertently mixed with movie knowledge, so sorry if I get things mixed up) and I don't think he was spotted by evil then. If so, he might have mentioned it to Frodo: "Here's this ring, but if you put it on, you see these creepy zombie kings of old."

With regards to my original spoiler: I know that the movie is old, but as he didn't seem to recognize Alan Rickman I wasn't sure whether he's seen it and didn't want to spoil the "big reveal". :)

Some movies are more spoiler dependent than others though.

But hey, here's another: In the last season of Lost, they didn't successfully fix the timeline and live happy ever after, they're in some sort of purgatory/heaven

vs
bitwise: Seed 157, skill 44.174±22.58

(http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/271/219/cab.png)

There really is a LOT to be said for using the basic mu score rather than the mu-sigma rating from Trueskill for seeding tournaments.

We had this discussion briefly, actually, and I voted in favor of Level.

There are tough cases on both sides (does 40 ± 1 really lose to 41 ± 10) but this solution errs in favor of those that play more games.

I think in general, after a certain number of games, mean skill is a much better predictor than level. I'm not positive what that number is. 100 games? More? Anyway one problem is that we have so many people below a reasonable game threshold. So then say someone who has 1 game and is ranked 25 +/-25 would be seeded higher than say a guy whos played a number of games and might be like 23+/-13. So on the low end of the spectrum, I think level is likely more fair.

I think that using the 99.1% uncertainty is probably a little extreme, and that's the issue. If it were say 1 StD instead, you could still encode the uncertainty of player skill, but it would be a much smaller factor, like ± 3-4 for most people instead of ±10.

What's really annoying for me though, is my uncertainty is pretty high, so I'd have been double better off using flat raw skill. Uh, Theory, did you just change the sheet? I can't see players raw skill and uncertainty any more for some reason... wanted to check what my seed would be if it was using that.

I hide the columns containing that data so that it can fit in this topic: http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=5687.0

I suggest going to the spreadsheet itself: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AuZ91-6FOcw_dHp0Yy0tM2hSelp2TFZwYlpqb2k0UVE and then making a copy to get all the data

The doc is linked to the forum listing, so for presentation purposes, the columns where that information is stored is collapsed. You can just copy/past the entire sheet into a new doc if you want to have something you can see and edit.

Oh also, it's 99.8%.

As an aside, if it were done by skill rating instead of level, I'd be seed 80, and my progression would look a little nicer. Ah well.

Rosebud is the sled.

King Kong dies at the end.

The kid is the evil honcho in the future.

Bella gains telepathy.

He sees dead people.


Not even kidding, I only know #5.  #2 must be one of the King Kong movies, but I don't know if it is referencing a particular one because I've never seen them.

(edit: thinking more, is #3 Star Wars Episode 1?)


Citizen Kane

King Kong

Looper

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2

The Sixth Sense


The last one is the most interesting "spoiler" to me because it was supposed to be a big reveal at the end of the movie. Really, go watch it again. It's never explicitly stated that he sees dead people until like Act 3, but then the marketing guys decided to put that scene in all the previews.

That's Success Baby. He's excited because things are working out better than expected. If it was 0 actions it would be Bad Luck Brian. If after getting the treasure maps with an action he explained to his opponent that on his next turn he's going to have 2 buys and 7 cards, 4 of which are gold, and his opponent played minion, that would be the Leonardo DiCaprio Inception macro.

That seems unlikely compared to the actual best option.  Perhaps edge cases where crazy1 is better than crazy2 and vise versa would be easier to find.

Wait, there's a question? The second is obviously crazier.

Watch out -- edge cases incoming.  Can you think of when the first would be crazier?

The real question for the edge case experts is to find a situation in which each of them is the best play of all possible plays.

You want that to be the best play? Alright.

You had just played Golem and drawn Lookout/Moat (don't ask what the heck is going on in this deck okay it just is). You have in hand a Scavenger, Vault and two Estates are ahead by 7 points and the Colony pile has 1 Colony left. You decided to resolve Lookout first.

How do you guarantee yourself $11? You need the extra actions, and the Platinum in your discard. So you trash Tunnel (2 points is meaningless), and put Fortress on top of your deck to be drawn. So you draw Fortress giving you Scavenger, Fortress, Vault and two Estates in hand. You Fortress, then Scavenger, putting Platinum on top of your deck, giving you $2 and Vault, Estate, X and X in hand. You play Vault, drawing Platinum and discard the other four cards, giving you $11, you buy the last Colony and win.

There. Edge Case'd

Why not trash the fortress to put it in hand, discard the tunnel put the plat back, then moat to draw 2 cards, including the plat. Then play fortress. So you have those two estates, a third card drawn from fortress and the plat and another card drawn from moat. So play scavenger for $2 and vault to discard the two drawn cards, 2 estates and 2 other cards plus the plat is $11 anyway. No need to trash the tunnel.

Second one is a little harder to make optimal, but it did make me realise a fun little pet trick while working it out.

Play Farming Village, reveal Tunnel, Watchtower. Watchtower goes into hand, THEN Tunnel is discarded. Use watchtower to give that deck some Gold. Decks love gold.

Why not trash the fortress to put it in hand, discard the tunnel put the plat back, then moat to draw 2 cards, including the plat. Then play fortress. So you have those two estates, a third card drawn from fortress and the plat and another card drawn from moat. So play scavenger for $2 and vault to discard the two drawn cards, 2 estates and 2 other cards plus the plat is $11 anyway. No need to trash the tunnel.

If you take the time to post something, whether explicitly Dominion-related or not, that I found was:

thoughtful

The general idea with the insanity wolf image is that he gives you really bad advice, or advice that you would have to be insane to follow. So playing King's Court-Golem while Possessing your opponent is a great example (assuming that you know your opponent's deck has Possessions and attacks in it; it's a terrible thing to do).

So it's more for giving stupid advice, not for pointing out things that are stupid (like how it's stupid that Iso incorrectly plays Coppers).

Confession Benj :
I play too much dominion, because when I discovered the English name from "Grolem" was "Golem", all I thought to was "Like the dominion card." And yet I was a huge Dominion fan.

And when I wrote this, I was wondering myself : why not a topic "You play too much Dominion when..."
Let's start with this :
You play too much Dominion when you visit a chapel in order to get rid of some junk.
You play too much Dominion when you are pursed by somebody and believe you will get protected by hiding behind a moat or in near to a lighthouse.
You play too much Dominion when you can't stand scouts.
You play too much Dominion when while going through a tunnel you are disappointed not to find gold.
And when you expect governors/traders to give you gold/silver, too.

...Okay, I don't know, maybe we can start to make a tread ?

Confession Benj :
I play too much dominion, because when I discovered the English name from "Grolem" was "Golem", all I thought to was "Like the dominion card." And yet I was a huge Dominion fan.

And when I wrote this, I was wondering myself : why not a topic "You play too much Dominion when..."
Let's start with this :
You play too much Dominion when you visit a chapel in order to get rid of some junk.
You play too much Dominion when you are pursed by somebody and believe you will get protected by hiding behind a moat or in near to a lighthouse.
You play too much Dominion when you can't stand scouts.
You play too much Dominion when while going through a tunnel you are disappointed not to find gold.
And when you expect governors/traders to give you gold/silver, too.

...Okay, I don't know, maybe we can start to make a tread ?
Great idea! Make a new thread with this (I would do it, but it is your idea, so I don't want to steal it). Here ist another:
You play too much Dominion when you don't want your Estate (in a very nice neighborhood) anymore.

I don't fall into this category, but some people indeed visit a chapel to give up their "junk" in RL - they give their cares and burdens to their god during prayer. (I'm not trying to derail this to RSP.)

The 12 chosen cards are Coppersmith, Cutpurse, Explorer, Fool's Gold, Fortune Teller, Haven, Island, Laboratory, Minion, Saboteur, Wharf, and Young Witch.
GwinnR vetoes Fool's Gold.
Inflatable Toaster vetoes Minion.
Before he vetoed Minion, Inflatable Toaster asked me, if he should veto Minion or Saboteur. Thanks for this nice gesture, that's why I let you win ;-)

If Governor is not on the board, my GF often asks me what card I would like her to veto, regardless of who vetoes first.  I still can't seem to win very often, but at least Possession is never in our games. (Unfortunately, neither is Governor.)

Alternate VP cards like Duke, yes, but I think Fairgrounds is an exception.  It might be worth more than a Province if you've been buying from the BM. 

I think the worst-relative-to-normal-buy is TMap, Peddler, then FG/Duke.

I thought it was to prevent abuses if Gold were swindled into a Farmland (what a nightmare...) and forcing the attacked player to remodel a card. But it's true it seemed me weird, why not on gain, because remodeling several $4 into farmlands this way would have been uncommon... before Fortress !
I wish the on-gain part were : "When you gain this and didn't gain another farmland immediately, you may trash a card from your hand. If you do, gain a card costing up to $2 more than the trashed card".

And then, two another ones :

It so happens, I bought exactly 1 Fool's Gold in a game I played today.  The reason was that it was a game with Tournament and Tactician, so I designed a deck that I could draw entirely and then have exactly 8$.  Tournament was one of the cards I counted for this, but then my opponent got an early Province, and used it to stuff a Tournament on my Tactician turn, leaving me with 7$.  I bought Hunting Party/Fool's Gold, because Fool's Gold is strictly better than copper and I wanted to be able to cycle quickly so I didn't want to buy Gold.

Then his Province lined up with his Tournament, and all this scheming didn't matter much.

Hunting Party + Copper might be better to keep variety down, especially because Tournament prizes make Hunting Party less reliable. I think it's pretty close though.

Not sure if trollbait or just ignorant... but well you can complete all the campaigns easily without paying any real money, and heck most of them you can get through without using a Zap if you're good. And the AI is very, very good considering how diverse every kingdom can be. There's a few quirks still (like buying Ruins sometimes) but mostly it's decent.

This was not always the case with Adventure Mode/Zaps.  It used to be pretty much impossible beyond the first half an act or so without buying zaps.  I believe that Donald mentioned Goko originally hoping users would spend gokoins on zaps, although this hope was abandoned long ago, and the adventure mode is greatly improved now.

"Fans want an official online Dominion app. What features can we put in it?"
"A campaign mode that requires paying us to do well!"
"A bunch of crappy AIs!"
"A good multiplayer UI which conforms to the community's suggestions."

Not sure if trollbait or just ignorant... but well you can complete all the campaigns easily without paying any real money, and heck most of them you can get through without using a Zap if you're good. And the AI is very, very good considering how diverse every kingdom can be. There's a few quirks still (like buying Ruins sometimes) but mostly it's decent. Obviously not amazing, but it'll beat most newbies and intermediates pretty handily. And yes, they are adjusting multiplayer to conform to what people on F:DS want.

This was not always the case with Adventure Mode/Zaps.  It used to be pretty much impossible beyond the first half an act or so without buying zaps.  I believe that Donald mentioned Goko originally hoping users would spend gokoins on zaps, although this hope was abandoned long ago, and the adventure mode is greatly improved now.

Yeah, this is exactly what I mean. The company clearly has some money-loving jerkwads at the top, but at the very least, they react to what the fans tell them, and are constantly improving things.

Were zaps a RL-money only thing back then? Since I play at Goko (October) it was always possible to buy zaps with Dominion coins you get for playing games. Using those coins I have already bought all adventures and 100+ zaps which I hope will get me through at least enough Adventures to unlock one promo.

I confirm.

Initially they were hoping that some people would buy so many zaps that they would spend money on gokoins on dominion coins on zaps. They wanted a "consumable" and came up with zaps as that consumable.

This plan had two huge flaws. First was that you didn't get to play Dominion in the adventures; you were just paying to beat the level. They sucked compared to just playing random games vs. the bots, and the fix was going to have to be, making the zaps just a thing for people who were stuck. Second they never had a system where you could possibly spend money; dominion coins are too plentiful. If zaps had cost fantastic sums of dominion coins, whatever, no-one was going to pay for them for the joy of spending them to slaughter an adventure level.

I argued these points and pushed for content to be what was sold, and they seem to have come around. I expect they will try to sell campaigns at some point. I have no problem with that; it could totally be worth the price to buy one.

My point was just in the context of the comic.  It seems fair to make a comic where a Goko employee suggested selling zaps at a brainstorming session.  Thankfully they've wisened up since then (not that making money is bad, but the zap plan was.  It probably was worth exploring, though).  Anyhow, I'll make a meme later to make up for all of this text.

Actually the Counterfeit is unnecessary. Play the Adventurer first so you have a larger handsize and thus are more likely to Cellar/Warehouse into your Black Market.

If you have Contraband and lots of coins worth of treasure, you might want to keep the virtual coin count low in hopes that, say, Grand Market isn't blocked.  Now we're getting into mind games though.

Hmm.  Well, I have spare actions, and through of many possible scenarios am about to gain a Contraband to the top of my deck and then draw it.  I still see Contraband as the best chance at constructing an edge case.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: AdamH on January 16, 2013, 10:40:55 am
In either case, though, all the cards revealed to your opponent are exactly the same. The only difference is that you have less (or equal in the best case) virtual coin.

Looks you can construct a case where having less virtual coin could help you here, and it looks like it would have to be with Contraband:

Adventurer finds two treasures, decreasing your PH by $2, and needing the Contraband play gets you that extra $1 you need to buy your card*. Either that or you really really need the extra buy.

Either of these cases involves suboptimal play by your opponent -- it's not a mind game at this point, I believe it falls under suboptimal play; which means this 'edge case' boils down to "if I play suboptimally then maybe my opponent will play suboptimally as well and I'll come off better out of the exchange."

*Incidentally, if you only get one treasure with Adventurer and decrease your PH value by $1, your opponent must know how much money you have at the end of your turn (or do they? Is there any way to discard or trash during your turn where your opponent doesn't know what is in your hand?)

...or, you can just gain two more (different) treasures later in your turn and draw a portion of your deck. OK, nevermind. You can get treasures in your hand your opponent doesn't know about and still only lose $1 to the PH if that's what you want.

Man I just spent 15 minutes typing up an edge case that I thought worked, and then saw this... I had been forgetting that Adventurer would reveal the drawn cards to your opponent. So you aren't giving your opponent more information by playing Adventurer first. :(

No, because if you'd played Poor House first, then your opponent would know that you have $6 without Copper. By playing Adventurer first, your opponent only knows that you have $5 without Copper, and $6 with Copper, so he's more likely to proscribe Gold instead of Grand Market.

In that situation, if you had played PH first, you would not need to play the Contraband in order to buy your GM; you lose nothing in this case by playing PH first.

BTW, If you get to claim knowledge of the rest of your turn before making the PH/Adventurer decision, then I do as well.

---------------

You and your opponent both know that you have a chance for virtual coin and you've turned it down (with no other benefits at all). Then some other stuff happened on your turn. Now, best case, you've played a Contraband and nothing else, and your opponent has no idea what your spending power is.

Now, convince me that an opponent who does not proscribe the card you want the most would be doing so because you turned down the virtual coins. I assert that your opponent is playing suboptimally in this case.

You can edge-case anything if you assume your opponent will play sub-optimally as a result of it. Since you have to use Contraband here, I think it only counts as an edge case if your opponent continues to play optimally, and his best move would change as a result of your having less virtual coins. Without that logical step, you can have stuff like this:

"It can be beneficial to [do Bad Thing], because then my opponent will start to play sub-optimally and [Do Even Worse Thing] and lose!"

In that situation, if you had played PH first, you would not need to play the Contraband in order to buy your GM; you lose nothing in this case by playing PH first.

Just replace that Gold you drew from Lab with a Talisman, or other $1 non-copper treasure, and it works.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: AdamH on January 16, 2013, 03:39:05 pm
So you turn down up to $2 in virtual coin and your opponent doesn't know what's in your hand. Your case is you don't want to show $6 in non-copper treasure when you play Contraband. If your assumption is that your opponent will proscribe GM in this case, then I assert it would be at least as sub-optimal for your opponent to not proscribe GM as it was for you to take the risk in the first place.

In fact, even if you know it will turn out this way and your opponent doesn't, you'll be at the mercy of your opponent to not proscribe GM in either case, and it's still sub-optimal for your opponent to proscribe anything but GM.

So what this example shows is that you can hurt your buying power on a turn in order to feign weakness using Contraband. But a competent opponent will (at the very least) see you voluntarily turn down virtual money and know something is up. That breaks your assumption that an (incompetent) opponent would blindly not proscribe GM when you are showing less than $6 in non-copper treasure and still have at least one playable card.

Yeah, I have to agree.

Edge case... you are winning, it's your turn, there's 1 Province left, and you have $8 to spend. When should you buy Duchy instead of Province?

You're playing adventure mode on Goko and need more points to get 3 stars.
Title: Re: Homage to the Best Card
Post by: eHalcyon on January 16, 2013, 03:57:24 pm
OK, your hand is Shanty Town Smithy Golem Copper Estate.

You play ST and then Golem, finding PH and Adventurer.

In the example we've been talking about, Adventurer draws Copper and Contraband.  But we can't know that beforehand.  So this is a problem in the example.  But let's say you are really good at tracking your deck and there are only two cards left; Golem and Adventurer flipped through everything else so you know that the last two cards are Copper and Contraband.  This is an edge case.  This is allowed.

So you know your Adventurer will draw Copper and Contraband.

A) If you play PH first, you would get +$3 virtual coin and have in hand Contraband, 2 Copper and a Smithy that you can play.  You have $6 in non-Copper coin and your opponent knows it.

B) If you play Adventurer first, you get +$1 virtual coin and have in hand Contraband, 2 Copper and a Smithy that you can play.  You have $4 in non-Copper coin, plus 2 Copper on top of that.

You play Smithy.  Who knows what you have now!

You are still building your deck, so forget about buying Province.  You prefer Grand Market, then Gold, then other things.  And your opponent knows this.

In case A, your opponent knows for sure that you can afford that Grand Market by playing Contraband.  It's an easy ban for the opponent.

In case B, your opponent doesn't know that!  He thus has a choice:

1) Ban Grand Market.  You buy Gold, possibly something else thanks to your Smithy draw.
2) Ban Gold.  Best case for him is that you still can't afford GM, and now you can't buy Gold either.  Worst case for him is that you did indeed draw a Silver or something so you can now buy GM.

I don't think either 1 or 2 is clearly more optimal play for your opponent.  He doesn't want you to get GM, but even better if he prevents you from getting Gold as well.  It's a risk.

Note that your own play here is a bit of a risk as well because you don't know what you'll end up drawing with Smithy either.  but again, I don't think one way or the other is clearly optimal.  By playing Adventurer first you give up the chance of (most likely) getting Gold for sure in exchange for a chance to get GM.  Your opponent has a choice of letting you have Gold for sure or possibly keeping you from both GM and Gold.

Easy edge case.  In Guilds, there is a reaction for when you reveal the certain card from you hand it lets you draw a card.  You know what your top card is and want to draw it instead of discarding it with Adventurer.

No, I have no idea of Guilds cards.  Yes, I did make up a card just to try and create an edge case.

Oh BTW my favourite number is 157. It's not a fake, and it was even my favourite number before I learned this was the number of kingdom cards within the sets from base + hinterlands, and plus the 5 promos !
And I'm near 157. (now I said this respect will rush until I reach... 158)

And BTW, 151 is the number of Pokemons of the first generation ! Nostalgia, yeaaah ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15gPu7e9XOU

This shows that the things that are usually bad in Dominion, could be very helpful in real life.

There has been much more experience with hinterlands cards for most of forum members as it can be played on iso + it's been available several months more.

Or is there some irony I haven't got?
