Title: Semi-Interesting Dominion Moments Thread
Post by: Seprix on May 17, 2016, 07:37:57 pm
For those moments which were intriguing, but not the best moments ever.

I played an Ambassador game, and Adventurer actually became very good when the decks became choked with Provinces and Duchies. Semi interesting because Adventurer was actually good.

I played one of those recommended kingdoms from Intrigue with a mixture of Base set cards once. That game was semi-intriguing.

After opening Potion-Silver in the hopes of getting one of the 3P cards, I did not hit 3P until the 5th shuffle. I should just have resigned at that point.

Playing Adventures, I quickly got up to Champion right before a shuffle.

Champion ended up being the bottom card of my deck.

My opponent played their newly upgraded Warrior and discarded it.

Last weekend in a Familiar/Apprentice IRL game against my 12 yo brother:
I split 5/2, and opened Apprentice/nothing (I really like to live dangerously).
First shuffle, Apprentice-c-c-c-c hand, buy Potion and be sad.
Second shuffle, Apprentice-c-c-c-c, trash a Copper and be sad.
Later in the second shuffle, e-e-c-c-p, be very sad, start to take in Curses.

We played it out, it ended on Curse-Market-Apprentice piles, the score was 30 to -5, and I never managed to trash two of my Estates.

Not sure why I'm posting this here, but it was intriguing to watch, I guess.

Is this the misclicks thread now?  I took a long break from Dominion and got into Ascension instead.  First game back was a 2/5 opening with Save.  I saved a Copper on my first turn.  There was a 4 I wanted, so I played one of my 6 Coppers and bought Save again.

I printed out a few proxies of Empires cards to fuck around while I wait for the game to come out. Some highlights:

- Fortune doubling my money so I could buy two Dominates in one turn

- Early game trashing becoming almost impossible against an opponent who opened double Enchantress

- Miser is a lot better when you double your money, especially because a $7 Miser is exactly half the cost of Dominate

- Wandering Minstrel putting Crown back on your deck as the second card, then Magpie both drawing it as well as gaining another Magpie

I just spent the Baker token in order to open Duchy.

I won.

EDIT: In a row against the same opponent, I just played a game that I won because I managed to prevent Bandit Camps from clogging up my deck by trashing 8 of the Spoils (the rest were in my opponent's deck and he was gaining them more or less as fast as he was using them too). That allowed me to build an engine with Ghost Ship as the only draw and Monument as the payload.

But Bridge Troll does still interact with Summon in a pretty powerful way. With Bridge Troll in play, as long as you have $5 to spend, you can Summon a card that normally costs $5.

I didn't play my Potion on T12 specifically to put it on top of my deck via my opponent's Haunted Woods (and then also not topdeck my 5 Alchemists), just so I could remodel it into a Duchy when they played their Governors the next turn.  Forget the exact circumstance, but for some reason I had to do it.  Was semi-interesting.

I played a game against eigensheep where he drew his deck, playing TR-Masq with no cards left in hand to trash two of my cards. He apologized and said I was free to resign. Next turn, I pull King's Court out of the Black Market, draw my deck, and KC-Masq him back to trash three of his cards, saying he could do the same.

(He had a Guide from the Black Market, which might have been enough to stop my pin, but he disconnected before we could find out.)

But when we played, we were thinking that the cost of summon was reduced as well. With the number of +buys I was getting from my bridge trolls, I was summoning six or seven cards per turn, and still buying a province, when in reality, as mentioned previously, I stll should have been spending $5 per summin like normal. Tl;dr: It shouldn't have been as insane as it was.

Possession can be annoying, but it's hardly as busted as Donate. And what's wrong with the Page line? Champion? At least by that point, it's been about 12 turns and the game is typically on its way towards the end.

We've come close to banning Rebuild, but I enjoy the challenge of trying to find a way to beat it on a given Kingdom. I just don't foresee having the same feeling towards Donate.

I don't understand. Even if Donate is extremely powerful, both players have universal access to it. You can buy it with zero money on the table and at any time in the game. I don't see how it could be broken, just super powerful for both players.

To me, Donate is that Event that means the better player will win. It reduces luck more than any other uh card-shaped thing. It's all about having a better plan for how the opening turns will unfold.

So, the idea that Donate is "broken," well you have to explain what it means to be "broken." I think you can argue that Dominion is best with a certain amount of luck, and Donate is over the line there, it reduces luck too much. Complaining about its power level doesn't make much sense to me otherwise.

Just because everyone can access it doesn't mean it's not broken--at least as I construe what it means to be "broken", which is a card that is wildly imbalanced.

I think you can argue that Dominion is best with a certain amount of luck, and Donate is over the line there, it reduces luck too much. Complaining about its power level doesn't make much sense to me otherwise.

For the amount of power Donate offers, it doesn't seem to have a cost that's aligned. You derive an instant amazing benefit at the expense of (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/d/d4/Debt8.png/18px-Debt8.png) to deal with on your next turn(s) (and more realistically it's (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/9/90/Debt4.png/18px-Debt4.png) or (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/2/21/Debt5.png/18px-Debt5.png) since you'll pay down some of the debt immediately). I don't think, for example, that one should create a card that costs (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/f/f7/Coin1.png/16px-Coin1.png) that reads "+6 Cards, +4 Actions, +3 Buys, +(http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/7/7d/Coin5.png/16px-Coin5.png), +8(http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/9/92/VP.png/16px-VP.png)" and then claim "well, it's not really 'broken' because everybody can afford (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/f/f7/Coin1.png/16px-Coin1.png) on Turns 1 and 2, you just object to the card's power level." (other card design principles aside, this is what I feel Chris is me's response inevitably leads to)

I didn't resign because I would have lost--though I probably would have, my husband is a better player than me--I resigned because the end was so inevitable and ridiculous the second Donate was purchased that for me it sucks all the fun out of even playing. Even in games when I lose I still have fun, but when Donate is on the board the Kingdom itself feels like it becomes almost irrelevant and the game degenerates into a race; in my opinion, it's a race to the bottom. I feel this way about almost any Kingdom where there is one clear strategy, it's just less enjoyable to play; much more fun is seeing how two divergent strategies play out.

Donate seems to be the biggest manifestation of this issue for me. It becomes a "must-buy" for everyone and it makes deck management irrelevant. "Am I going to line up my Curse with my Chapel? Have I put myself in a position where I'm pretty likely to end up with a total cost of (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/d/df/Coin11.png/16px-Coin11.png) among cards I no longer need so that I can Forge them into a Colony? Aww, screw it, now I can just get rid of all the stuff I don't need anymore indiscriminately instead of cleverly!" Like, at that point why not start each game with 7 Golds and 3 Provinces?

Hm, maybe my gripe really is just with the mitigation of luck. Luck isn't a huge element of Dominion, but the fact that it lingers on the sidelines is part of what makes the game interesting.

I could probably go on, but I'd mostly be repeating the same thoughts using other examples. This was posted in Semi-Interesting moments and it seems I've sparked a discussion that is more than semi-interesting. Sorry, folks!

I am 100% never the guy arguing that "everyone can access it thus it's not broken."

"Broken" to me is entirely about what game experience you get. It is okay by me if a card essentially changes the rules, provided that the game-with-changed-rules is fun.

Like, at that point why not start each game with 7 Platinums and 3 Colonies?
Donate pushes skill; starting with 7 Platinums and 3 Colonies pushes away from skill.

As always, feel free to hate cards for whatever reason and not play with them for whatever reason. I'm not trying to talk anyone into liking Donate.

Played wishing well 18 times.
Guessed correctly 15 times.
No scout, apothecary or any other deck examination involved, just sheer luck.
One of the incorrect guesses was when I guessed a card not in my deck because I wanted to leave the top card for my next hand.

Even in games when I lose I still have fun, but when Donate is on the board the Kingdom itself feels like it becomes almost irrelevant and the game degenerates into a race; in my opinion, it's a race to the bottom.

The game is a race though. That isn't a very solid argument, for the entire point of the game is to win before the other player does.

However, you present another argument which is much, much stronger.

Quote
I feel this way about almost any Kingdom where there is one clear strategy, it's just less enjoyable to play; much more fun is seeing how two divergent strategies play out. Donate seems to be the biggest manifestation of this issue for me. It becomes a "must-buy" for everyone and it makes deck management irrelevant. "Am I going to line up my Curse with my Chapel? Have I put myself in a position where I'm pretty likely to end up with a total cost of (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/d/df/Coin11.png/16px-Coin11.png) among cards I no longer need so that I can Forge them into a Colony? Aww, screw it, now I can just get rid of all the stuff I don't need anymore indiscriminately instead of cleverly!" Like, at that point why not start each game with 7 Golds and 3 Provinces?

And this is why I may end up hating Donate, much like I despise Champion currently. It doesn't feel like Dominion anymore. Donate looks like tons of fun, but Champion also looked like tons of fun to me before. I won't know until I play with it, but Donate has that same potential to warp the game too much. I don't think it will be as bad as Champion, as you still have to build your engine, and you still have to decide when it is best to buy Donate, and you still have limited Actions. I don't know how it will be yet, but this second argument is a lot stronger. Is Donate too monolithic?

You know, Champion is basically a card that (overly) simplifies the late game but early game decisions and luck still matter. Donate on the other hand (overly) simplifies the early game.

In practice, I don't mind the effect Champion has on the game. I might mind how Donate affects the game.

Played wishing well 18 times.
Guessed correctly 15 times.
No scout, apothecary or any other deck examination involved, just sheer luck.
One of the incorrect guesses was when I guessed a card not in my deck because I wanted to leave the top card for my next hand.

One of these days we should see an article specifically about how do use "name a card". I find those to be really cool, and I feel like they are more strategic than they are given credit for.

I haven't played with Donate yet. I'm less inclined to hate Champion now. It's sort of like Cultist and Rebuild games, where I'd rather not play them because they are so pervasive and dominating. My biggest objection to Champion is that playing all of your Actions willy-nilly doesn't feel like Dominion. I think if Making Fun didn't make it so that there were so many instances of Adventures cards popping up, I would probably dislike Page less. I feel like I'm playing with Page once every 3 or so games on average!

I used to hate Urchin and Tournament games, but I am fine with them now. Yes, they're very strong, and sometimes they are unfair, but you still have to have a strategy to win. They are not strategies in themselves.

Does Donate really simplify the early game? You've still got to figure out when to buy it, what cards you're adding to your deck to keep, etc.

Put another way, I think that Donate isn't any more "broken" than Chapel. They are both super powerful trashers that are usually must-buy and thankfully easily accessible in cost. They don't constitute a single dominant strategy in and of themselves because all they do is trash. They give you super slim decks with exactly what you want in them, but they don't dictate what that strategy is. Donate is not "one clear strategy". Like Chapel, it opens the door for a variety of other strategies.

1. Seprix draws deck. No cards in draw or discard.
2. Seprix buys Nobles. Now Nobles is in the discard.
3. Seprix buys Doctor, overpaying by 1. Overpay happens before Doctor gets gained, so Nobles is still the only card in the discard.
4. Reveal Nobles to Doctor overpay, put it back on top.

This guarantees the Nobles will be part of the next hand, which protects it from Swindler attacks.

If I had to guess, it was probably some kind of Mountebank slog game.  Buying Raid is not a bad idea when you're getting three silvers and a free attack in.  His opponent probably bought too many Watchtowers or something, and wasted time with Familiars when Mountebank was the better option on the board.  The real surprise would be if bought Raid not once, but two or even three times.  That would just be crazy.

Seeing as you played that game against me, you would of course know.  ::) I didn't understand you going for Familiar, and if I recall correctly, I had 3 Watchtowers. I had a lot of them. If I remember correctly, you were trying to build when I ended the game. You way overbuilt. I took all the Duchies and Estates before you could even buy 3 Provinces.

I recently played a Colony game with Governor and Mine and trashed 3 Platinums into Colonies on the final turn.  It was fun using Mine as a patch to make Governor's Province trick (gain a Gold, then remodel it into a Province) work with Colonies (by Mining the Gold into a Platinum before remodeling it).

Mint works too, funnily enough. Just Mint extra Platina.

I read that first Mint as Mine.

I'm not joking.

Well, yes. Ghost Ship is by no means the best card for doing something like that though. The first Ghost Ship you play is a strong attack, but any further Ghost Ships are just expensive Moats. Moat, incidentally, is a pretty nice target for the +1 Action token - $2 Labs are pretty cool.

My opponent and I both had 2 Possessions and 2 Ambassadors.

(This was actually an incredibly interesting game -- I was trying to Transmogrify my Ambassadors away before he could play them.  And I even considered not playing my Champion, in hopes of eventually Ambassadoring his things to myself, which Champion prevents.  And I think Amb/Amb is by far the better opening than what we did.  But I digress.  This happened...)

Possession is not a very strong card, it doesn't need a nerf. It shouldn't be an Attack either because in a vacuum, it benefits the possessed player.

Revealing reactions to the attack of Possession could be beneficial to the Possessor if the Possessee blindly plays reactions. However, with a competent player, the Possessee can retain some dignity, and maybe make Secret Chambler... *gasp* ... VIABLE.

I also thought it was a really nice fun kingdom to play. Ferry was important as I think the key is having the -2 token on the right card at the right tine.

Yes, right, I meant always-missing Mystic.  Still good for $3.

Non-terminal +$2 at a cost of $3 sounds pretty good.  Hmm, maybe it could be a Treasure instead of an action. ;)

If you're going to post a Hot Take the least you could do is defend it.

I agree that Awaclus drops one-liner non-advice a bit too often, but this one is pretty obvious and has been discussed plenty in other discussions about the card.  In a vacuum, the net effect of Possession for the possessor is just a convoluted gainer, while the net effect for the possessed player is that their deck cycles some.  The possessed player doesn't really lose anything from being possessed.  Your current hand and possibly some cards from your deck get discarded and maybe reshuffled, but it's replacing one randomly drawn hand with another randomly drawn hand.  And in a vacuum, cycling is actually a good thing for you most of the time.

The problem is, selective memory means that people remember when their hand is "downgraded" more than they remember when it gets better, plus there's a psychological aversion to being "controlled" by the other player.  And of course, there are a few card interactions that can actually make Possession a lot more dangerous (e.g. Ambassador).  Moreover, it's not fun when the other player is taking multiple turns in a row, even if it's not hurting you.

In a post-Adventures world, I don't see how Possession is simply a fancy Workshop anymore. There are too many cards now that work beyond simply gaining a card this turn -- Durations, Coin Tokens, Reserves, Madman/Mercenary, Event Tokens to name a few. Possession is much stronger with decks that rely on any of these.

Loosing all your coin tokens, gettinf your -1 (card or $) token, loosing your durations, loosing a +1 something token on a good card,... All if these genuinely should count as attacks.

It's unclear to me that when you are buying victory cards, cycling is a net plus. At that point, cycling is neutral.
Title: Re: Semi-Interesting Dominion Moments of 2016 Thread
Post by: eHalcyon on August 19, 2016, 12:08:01 pm
The ways that it hurts are still a minority, and it is usually easy to play around. Opponent gets Possession? Time to spend your coin tokens. Maybe it was a bad idea to get the coin token cars in the first place, but you should have seen that coming! Likewise for most other interactions. It's mostly just Amb/Masq that are tough to deal with because your opponent can give you one to abuse.

Cycling is worse when you are greening, but it is positive before that. It'll be a positive most of the time. Overall I wouldn't call it a major benefit; Possession is just neutral outside of uncommon interactions, most of which you should be able to see coming and work around.

It never was a fancy workshop. It's just a way of looking at it. I would say Possession is more of an Outpost/Mission on your opponent. Thinking of Possession as a Workshop is very helpful in determining the usefulness of Possession, but it is not quite a Workshop.

Both my friend and my dad had a time where they bought fortune, but forgot to actually gain one. Apparently, the high price is so distracting that they forget to pick it up from the supply and put it in their discard pile. When I bought fortune, I did not forget to gain it. I won.

tldr: don't forget to gain the card you bought when playing IRL.

BoM is played as RC, which gets +1 card/+1 action. Then it instructs "put this on your Tavern mat". It moves to the Tavern mat, and as a result, leaves play, causing it to turn back into BoM. Now you have a BoM on your Tavern mat, which does not have any instructions that allow you to call it, so it is there for the rest of the game.

Was it a Familiar game where you failed to hit 3P on the second shuffle?

Nope! It was a Scrying Pool board and I hit 2P :)

So I could post about it here, of course!

On a more serious note: It was a weak SP engine with no village, no trashing besides Transmute and not the strongest payload. My opponent managed to Embargo Scrying Pools, so I switched to Transmute-Lab BM

Transmute, huh? I remember using Transmute once, ever. But to this day, I have still never used Scout. Heck, I've played Ruined Village more for usefulness than I have played Scout.

Does anyone else set themselves odd challenges when seeing a board you are playing against a bot?

The cards I noticed on the board were Sea Hag, Masquerade, Wharf, Fishing Village and Peddler. Knowing the bot would obviously buy Sea Hag, I thought could I win buy only buying the other 4 cards, using Masq to bat the Sea Hag curses straight back at the bot. Could I pile out before the bot makes up the points deficit from the curses?

The answer was yes, but it was tight. When I got to pile out the bot was on 0 points from 6 Estates and 6 Curses.

I will post the log when available.

First game with Dominion second edition, we decided to pick 4 of the 7 new cards and 6 other cards from the set. And we got Cellar, Vassal, Workshop, Militia, Poacher, Bandit, Library, Market, Mine, Artisan.

Poacher all-star board (2 players)! Bandit was weakened by the power of Poacher, but I still got a Bandit on my first $5 and it hit a Gold the first time I played it. My opponent’s Library helped counter my two Militias. I won by a point when power-card Market let me Province-Estate at the end. At least the next new cards game will have a trasher!

I mean, not necessarily.  We have to edgecase this properly, and the edge case here is pretty obvious.  What if you have 1 Scrying Pool, 46 green cards and 3 treasures?

I don't think Great Hall and Mill will be on the same board very often.

Maybe Island and Distant Lands are in there?

IRL game where having to keep clear track of trashed cards, when exactly they went to trash and when to shuffle was a must;
Rogue, Junk Dealer, Procession, Scrying Pool, Noblemen, Peasant, Salvager, and Courtyard. (Noone bothered with Talisman or Counting House).

No, seriously, Discipling Processing Rogues when SP/Noblemen draw the deck is a headache.

And it's the first time I've seen someone Salvaging Teachers as their final turn.

So, I see this board yesterday with Native Village and Bridge Troll, and, well the combo probably doesn't work for Bridge Troll, but then I notice Duplicate, and think... Well this could make it work...

So my opponent is playing somewhat unfocused, making the game seemingly under control even with some rather suboptimal playing from my part, the combo looks somewhat nice though, could definitely work, though I think if it was Bridge Troll/Duplicate with some engine support it would be quite a bit better, but there's not much of an engine in this board. Anyway, the time to kick off my megaturn is finally there!

Well, I certainly think that it would be a nice gesture from him, but I don't blame him for not doing it. Misclicks like this can be considered a part of online Domínion and if he thinks like that there's nothing wrong in taking a win from my mistake. I do admit I waited for about a minute after explaining in the chat what happened to see what was going to be his reaction, since he didn't respond I just quit. I have only myself to blame for this loss though... (And maybe I can blame MF a bit too considering how many times I have seen players make mistakes with this particular interaction though...)

On the other hand I believe there might be some kind of joke in this post that I'm missing... Hehe...

"Hm, no way to trash starting cards and no +Cards? There's Possession but eh. I'll just gain lots of Ports and a few Processions, gain a ton of Distant Lands, and figure it out later."

Some point in the middle of the game: "Oh right Lost City is kind of +Cards. Well, screw it let's just get more Distant Lands. Maybe I can outrace Possession? Who knows."

Turn 9: Ports empty
Turn 10: I gain my 5th Distant Lands
Turn 12: Distant Lands empty

I have a healthy VP lead, but my opponent has a lot of Lost Cities and Possession, and is going to wreck me in a few turns if I don't end the game.

"Darn, 1 buy a turn, and most of my Ports got trashed into Distant Lands so I don't have ways to empty a 3rd pile. Oh wait lol Embargo tokens were a thing this game."

Gain 5 curses in my last 2 turns for the win.

Games like this are why I think it's funny people assume I have a plan for each game. Sometimes I just YOLO and see what happens.

MikeRoLoVe   buys Lost City
MikeRoLoVe   gains Curse
MikeRoLoVe   calls Duplicate

The interaction here is Duplicte/Embargo though and, by that time, you had pretty much won the game already, since the point difference was pretty insurmountable, considering how close the game was to the end.

I was finally able to get the Cost-Reduction Warrior Carpet Bombing to work.  When Adventures first came online, I thought this would be a thing:  Use Warriors and Bridge Troll (Bridge or Highway work too) to systematically trash your opponents entire deck (except for cards costing 2 or less).  Trash the 3/4's, then play a couple bridge trolls and trash the 5/6's, etc. 
It was then pointed out to me that Champion blocks this (and every Warrior game has Champion in it), and it's too slow to set up with all the treasure you're gaining.  All true.

In this game I used multiple Counterfeits to trash the treasure, I had Margraves for extra draw, I Inherited Page (which allows me to play a bunch of travellers before even starting to play my Warriors).  I kept the Pages rather than turning them into Treasure Hunters, there was no Estate trashing in this game.  Once I got this going I trashed a bunch of his 3/4's and then played my Bridge Trolls and trashed his Champions.  He resigned right afterwards.  I actually goofed the playing of the Bridge Trolls, playing one too many, so I missed trashing his 5's.  I would've got them on the next pass if he hadn't resigned.

In a page/peasant game, a warrior trashed my fugitive. And that's literally all she wrote on that. It's basically insurmountable.

Even though I think Transmute is the worst card (http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=14594.msg560640#msg560640), I bought it over both Scout and Counting House in this game (http://gokosalvager.com/static/logprettifier.html?http://dominion-game-logs.s3.amazonaws.com/game_logs/20161127/log.0.1480263228353.txt).

In this game (http://gokosalvager.com/static/logprettifier.html?http://dominion-game-logs.s3.amazonaws.com/game_logs/20161127/log.0.1480232296981.txt), my opponent and I both bought Mandarin and Adventurer, and given our decks at the time I think these were actually the right moves. (The Mandarin buy was sketchier than the Adventurer buy, but buying it let me topdeck just a Counterfeit.)

Mandarin is generally an OK card when the kingdom is weak like that.

It's 2017, but I don't want to open a new thread.

What's worse than hitting Estate with Swindler?
Hitting Estate with Swindler when Battlefield is on the board.

This was an interaction I wasn't expecting, I was laughing so hard in the game I just played.

But doesn't it really lose track at the end of turn 10? Confused by the placement of that message.

Yes it does. The message is definitely in the wrong place; either end of turn 10 (when it fails to set it aside) or start of turn 11 (when it fails to play it) would make sense to me.

semi-interesting base only game (except two events) with seaway on throneroom and a market/councilroom "engine":

E buys and gains 25 Coppers, an Estate, 3 Duchies and 6 Gardens.

In a league match in December (only base set), I chapeled my deck down to 5 cards and Throne Room->Remodeled my way to a 13-12 win. Final deck = TR, Remodel, Province x2, Estate. Drained the province pile by replacing 2 per turn. Might have officially done it twice in same match if one of our connections hadn't dropped. My opponent conceded the previous match point once he saw how the deck worked after I used it the second time, so I won 2 match points using identical decks.

This deck actually has a name. It is known as the turbo remodel but has been mostly forgotten since it is rather weak compared to other combo decks.

That's what it is called! I knew I had heard it named the first night I played dominion with some really good players back 5ish years ago, but had long since forgotten its name. Since it was a base only game I decided to go for it. It ended just in time because his engine had just started to draw the whole deck the turn before I ended it, so if it went any longer he would have had it for sure.

I almost won a game where I was down 1 Province to 5 Provinces, with no alt-VP, and with Trusty Steed as the only +Actions card in the kingdom.

Copy-pasted the log but I don't think it's very readable. The key idea: I was down 4 Alchemists to 6, and with the limited +Actions that put a hard cap on my handsize. So to catch up, I bought a Mint to trash all my treasure except 1 Gold, 1 Counterfeit, and 2 Potions. That let me play Torturer or Followers every turn (unfortunately I never drew both in the right order), and I was catching up 1 Duchy at a time, which I gained through Artificer/Tournament to avoid having to add any treasure to my deck. It was actually very, very close. I made a mistake on my last turn but it wouldn't have mattered, on my last turn I could at best tie in VP while going 1st, which would have been a loss.

If I had managed to pick up just 1 more Estate on an earlier turn, it would have been the best comeback I've ever done. But I didn't get there, so it's just a loss.

I recently played a 3-player game with Tomb, Bandit Fort, Lurker, Stonemason, and Mining Village, among others (but no viable alternative sources of coin), and won with a trashing rush.

Because some games, you don't care about the Victory cards. Some games, you just want to watch the Kingdom burn.

That's one of the cool things about Empires: more ways to win, and thus more possible deck subtypes.

My friend won the Catapult split (3-2), and was cursing the hell out of me.  I had picked up a Treasure Trove and Bandit Camp early, and I won only because I grabbed some Storytellers.  They let me draw my entire deck, and still have (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/6/6d/Coin.png/16px-Coin.png) left over to buy Provinces.

Just made an opponent resign after one turn on a board with no good 3/4 cost cards while drawing a 4/3 split.  The key cards were page, ratcatcher was only trashing, cultist (and maybe to a lesser extent royal carriage). I played 2 out of my 4 coppers out of my first hand for a page and he resigned thinking I hit the 2/5 split haha.

board of feodum, squire, jack, island, city, conspirator, don't recall rest as it didn't help. I did obvious squire-jack  Opponent got two islands and tried to make squire-conspirator chain despite no draw. As expected for squire-jack I got 3 provinces vs his zero on turn 11 where he resigned. That was uninteresting part. Interesting part was how he commented his squire-conspirator thing.

For the first time ever, I just got a second Champion.  It came in a Feodum game after the Silvers were gone -- didn't need/want the Hero anymore.  I could have also Upgraded it into a Gold (or Harem), but didn't even want to do that.

I think what Chris is trying to get at is why did he upgrade a second traveler past treasure hunter in the first place (meaning, why did he have a hero)?

Post by: Dingan on March 16, 2017, 02:25:49 am
If I remember correctly, I had 2 Treasure Hunters and 3 Warriors at one point.  So, already had enough Treasure Hunters, and Warrior was good for the draw.  Then once I was thin enough, didn't need the draw as much anymore, hence 1 Warrior->Hero.  Or something like that.  Keeping more Treasure Hunters would have slowed me down mid-game.

Post by: GendoIkari on March 16, 2017, 11:11:24 am
Played a game on ShuffleIT yesterday, wish I'd saved the log. My opponent's 1 Witch managed to give out more Curses than my 3 Witches combined (6-4). Partly due to him playing his Militia on the 2nd Shuffle while I had 5 Coppers in hand.  Then my Witch missing the reshuffle every time. He was buying Markets while I bought more Witches. And his 1 Throne Room lined up with his 1 Witch, while my 1 Throne Room never lined up with any of my 3 Witches.

The craziest part.... Towards the end I had several Gardens, and the score was actually neck and neck. On the second-to-last turn, I bought the second-to-last Gardens, even though it was extremely likely that my opponent would then buy the last Gardens for the win. I also accidentally bought a Copper, even though I had (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/3/3d/Coin2.png/16px-Coin2.png) more for an Estate instead. Then, by some miracle, my opponent could only come up with (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/3/32/Coin3.png/16px-Coin3.png) the next turn. So then I bought the last Gardens.

I lost by the tie-breaker because I'd gone first. If I had bought the Estate instead of the Copper on the second-to-last turn, I actually would have won.

I just played a game in which I was so much ahead that the best play was to buy Donate just to trash 5 Provinces from my deck since that 100% guaranteed the win (I had all the Grand Markets so I could triple Province for sure as long as I didn't have the stop cards, and he didn't have extra gains so he couldn't have ended the game in the meantime).

4P game. Started building a modest duration engine: Two lookouts, two Walled Villages, two Haunted Woods, two Squires, two Golds. Other players started following a similar path, trashing their Estates and emptying the WV/HW piles. Piled out Squires for a 3/2/0/-9 win.

I went for Mercenary. My opponent didn't because they were on 5/2, so to compensate they gained 7 Tunnels. I decided to stop playing Urchin + Mercenary and beat them the old fashioned way with Wharf-BM.

But they couldn't easily buy one the next turn before I could get 4 of them into their deck.  Obviously after that it's pointless.

Isn't it pretty pointless anyway? Your opponent didn't shuffle on his turn 21, so even if he had gotten a Curse on that turn, it wouldn't have entered his deck any sooner than the ones you gave him.

I just won a game with Triumphal Arch where I desperation-bought a 3rd Enchantress on my last turn when I had 3 Ruins -- didn't know which Ruins (yes I could have determined it, but didn't want to) -- and basically no other action cards, and viola I got 3VP to pull ahead by 1.  I had won the Ruin split 7-3.  Turns out I had 3 Survivors.

Have two princes activated. One with harbinger, one with vassal.

Used the harbinger to topdeck teacher. Used the vassal to play the teacher.

Turns out you can call the teacher immediately because it's still the start of the turn.

This is even easier with a Princed Throne Room (or Procession, although Princing Procession is a risky move; Disciple also works if you have cost reduction, and is always available with Teacher), since you just need to have it in your hand instead of on top of your deck.

You got 2 actions and a coin for (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/2/2a/Coin4.png/16px-Coin4.png), so it's like you added a villa to your deck for (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/f/f7/Coin1.png/16px-Coin1.png) without spending a buy.

Yeah, we each had a Province, and my Golem from the previous turn put another two Transmogrifies on my mat with the other three.  And I was fortunate enough to draw my one Province in hand with enough money to buy another one while milling the rest.  Wasn't my plan exactly, but it ended up working out!

No. Was a Colony game. They had bought a few of those, and were accumulating Curses. And there was Scrying Pool, which I got 8 of, and which were helped out by my opponent's 1 terminal per turn which was Pirate Ship. Needless to say, I had plenty of time to build and control the end game.

I won after Princing a Remake

There was Bank in the kingdom so I could push cards up a chain, plus Bandit (and Devil's Workshop) in the kingdom to help me start at $6 more often.

Speaking of Remake: I can tell you from first-hand experience that Remake is not a card you want to find with your Ghost.

Used Necromancer to play Imp. Out of several actions in hand, the only one Imp could play was another Imp.

After he put hours into last week's Engineer / Throne Room / Secret Passage / Bazaar / Ghost Ship deck, trying to get it to compete with Rebuild, Crown / Moat with Forge and Save and other stuff helping out was a cakewalk.

I was losing hard (83 to 0, I believe), and wasn't even trying anymore, just buying random stuff from the Black Market. We were joking in the chat about how badly I was losing. Then I Cursed him, and told him 'I win, you have the most purples now'. And then.. He resigned?

It was a weird experience.

An IRL game with no trashing where we both ended up with enormous, bloated, miserable decks.

And we _still_ managed to hit each other's single Fortune with Swindler.

m wishes for Wishing Well but reveals Wish.

K plays a Wishing Well.
K shuffles their deck.

So much for "no wishing for more Wishes"

Tax and Mission on the board.  What to do on boring Mission turns?  Spend your +buy from Wharf to tax Province, and deny your opponent points.  Province had 24 Debt tokens on it at one point.

Fortunately, Monument and Artisan were in the kingdom, so it didn't turn into a stalemate.  The game ended with Farming Villages, Wharves, and Duchies emptying.  The game was practically over when I lost both the Farming Village split and the Wharf split, but it was fun to carry on nonetheless.
