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.

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.

Just to make a point regarding my previous posts

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.

And this is why the champion line sometimes ain't fun.

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

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.

Opening Doctor on a 3/4 is so sad

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.

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.

I think you have a typo. That should have read "Turn 3 - ehunt plays a Steward, trashing two Coppers."

Who skips a turn 3 Steward play to gain Gold? I have Awaclus voice echoing in my head, "Trashing a card is equivalent to gaining a Lab." Is it really worth trashing two Labs to gain a Gold?

Yes, trashing on that turn would make it harder to hit $5 in the next few turns, but my guess is that $5 wasn't a critical price point to hit quickly in that kingdom or you would have opened Steward/Silver instead of Steward/Leprechaun.

Yes, you got super-lucky in the process of trying to not make your own shuffle luck.

Wow, now Awaclus voice is echoing right out of my fingers on to my keyboard. It's like a disease. I gotta go get that looked at.

In a game against Lord Rat, I Inherited Page, then messed around with Goons and Groundskeeper.

On my final turn, I played a bunch of GKs and 3-piled by emptying the Estates. Then I auto-played the Traveller upgrades, which accidentally returned all Estates I'd played that turn to the pile. Had to play 2 more turns to actually end the game.

If I wanted to, I could have gotten infinite VP off Groundskeeper and Goons by buying and returning Estates indefinitely.

today I bought a second fortune....for the +buy.
it was the only +buy, but we had crowns, so it changed my buy from +2 to +4.

it allowed me to end the game on piles 1 turn earlier.

I kind of get the impression that a lot of people do this? I've never done it, but I think it was discussed before. How common is this?

for me, the frequency is like 1 out of 10.  I haven't played with fortune enough for it to have happened a second time yet. i would have bough literally any other +buy first.

In the absence of other things that matter, getting the second Fortune for the +buy is very slightly better than just going straight for the Provinces if Provinces are untouched.

That's actually pretty rare.  will probably only happen 0-1 time in most player's lifetimes.

i might have achieved 6+ provinces in three turns...and that would have been a win, but the game would still be going.  my way the game had more modest points, but was over in the three turns including the second fortune purchase.

I unboxed Dominion: Adventures twice! Bought the English version (I already owned Dutch Base), unboxed it, decided mixing languages was ugly, chose the Dutch version of Adventures as a prize after finishing third in the Dutch Championships in 2015, unboxed it, sold the English version.

Early game, before you have any trashers, that could be true, given how automatically one would trigger the "discard hand to trash this" version of Hovel in the first two turns. If we're talking mid-game it depends, because the Hovel trash might not pay off as quickly as getting a 4-cost Village or something. And getting the opportunity to trash 2 Hovels means Masquerade is on the board already right?

Sure, but you never know for sure with the shuffle luck.

At any rate, maybe I'll think twice before passing Hovel with Masquerade.

Nah.
Continue to pass the hovel unless you have a curse or a ruined village in hand.  Before the passed hovel, the player had 1 dead card in his deck that he'd be able to remove eventually.
After the passed the hovel, he wasted a turn buying an estate and still ended up with 1 dead card that is more difficult to remove than a hovel. Seems to me that the pass was sufficiently annoying.

Keep is the go-to response for these kinds of things. The bizarre stuff I've had to do for Keep points.

There could be other reasons for getting so many Talismans however. The presence of Cultist indicates a three pile ending should be possible with all those Talismans.

Just won a game 3-1. No victory cards were bought.
Many years ago, I won a game by having the least negative score. The cards I remember were Torturer, Grand Market, Quarry and Outpost. The Grand Markets had all gone and our engines were revved up ready to go, but I figured since I'd taken by far the fewest Curses it was safer to end the game at once on piles (Grand Market, Torturer, Curse).

I even had to buy the last couple of Curses myself!

My opponent gave me a free prince with Lurker. It's terrific how even level ~50 tends to play lurker without thinking.
Later, I could have Princed a Farmer's market, which with a little skill (making sure that other famer's market would take the VP instead of the princed one) could work but I felt it was risky. So instead one of my heralds played Prince, and luckily I had another Herald in hand.

It seems REALLY impressive to pull that off before your opponent can get a champion to protect themself.  did they get unlucky, or just not push very hard for the champion?

But why does the game record discard three warrior'd cards at a time pre-shuffle, but then discard two cards individually post-shuffle?
Makes me think I'm missing something.

No - was an IGG/Wall game - I was planning on using it to get rid of Curses and/or pick up a Duchy or 2 but it never connected. In hindsight, it was a bad decision, but my opponent ignored IGG which I think was a worse decision.

The order of Hexes is not randomized again after revealing them all once, right? So you could know that Miserable is coming if you've tracked the Hexes succesfully.

No, you shuffle boons and hexes if the pile is empty and you need a new one. But if there's just 1 left in the pile, then you could have tracked that the one left is Misery (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Misery).

Quote from: The rules
If the Boons deck is empty, first shuffle the discarded Boons to reform the deck
[...]
If all Hexes have been used, shuffle the discards to reform the deck

Also if you're loading an old game from a replay code, the boons and hexes will always be in the same order as they were in the original game, and the mid-game shuffles will be the same as they were in the original game as well.

I just did the "play treasures, buy Mandarin from Black Market, topdeck treasures, draw treasures, play them again" routine. It's what got me to the $24 I needed to empty the Provinces when I only had $18 in my deck.

Yesterday evening I played the fastest BM ever (for me personally). We all know Triple Gear is nuts, but what if you add Trade?

T1-3: Gear
T4: Silver
T5-6: Trade, trashing 3 Estates and 1 Copper for 4 Silvers (in total)
T7-12: Province

6 Provinces in 12 turns :)

Not every board is a megaturn engine.

The board I played didn't have any form of +Buy or gainers, as well as weak trashing. I don't think there would have been any engine fast enough to beat Gear-Trade-BM here.

Z plays a Silver, 2 Coppers and a Gold.
Z buys a Fortune.
Z takes 8 debt.
Z gains a Fortune.

Somewhat amusingly, I actually won this game, but only because I was the first to hit the Provinces: I bought 3, then he bought 3, then I got the last 2.

Hovel doesn't have a pile to be returned to, so you can't actually transfer them using Ambassador. Masquerade would work, though.

I had that situation come up in an IRL game, where one player passed the other his Hovel (can't remember if it was me or my opponent) and then the other bought something like Great Hall to trash two Hovels.

In the early game, buying an Estate to trash two Hovels is likely the best play you can make, to the extent that you certainly should pass Overgrown Estate and possibly Necropolis over Hovel if you can, only to prevent your opponent from doing that.

I'm pretty sure this is a joke. Masquerade alone gives you both the ability to trash OE for the +1 Card and a use for Necropolis.

It's not a joke. Getting rid of a dead card in your deck is stronger than Necropolis or a one-time +1 card.

Yeah, buying an Estate with 2 Hovels in hand is basically the same thing as buying a Laboratory (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Laboratory). So there certainly might be better buys; but really depends on how much you have to spend on the turn that you drew both Hovels (which is very likely to be less than (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/images/thumb/7/7d/Coin5.png/16px-Coin5.png)).

But in order to trash both Hovels on an Estate buy after playing Masquerade, you need to forego trashing one of them on the Masquerade play! You could choose to trash a Copper instead, but then we'd be talking about a Peddler + (whatever else you would have bought) versus a Lab. If there's really nothing you want to buy for $3 or $4, it could be better, but that's hardly the power play that Awaclus initially made it sound.

I still think I'd prefer to have two one-shot Labs than an opportunity to buy a Lab for $3. Especially early, when the extra card can potentially help me hit a key price point.

Well, in this case it's better than a Lab because Masquerade can't draw that "Lab" dead.

Depending on how long it had been since you loaded the page, it might not be surprising to see the number increase by more than 1.

bought a cursed village after having put my cube on innovation. I get to choose the order of receiving a Hex and play Cursed Village. Didn't really care so chose to get the Hex first. Oops:


e buys and gains a Cursed Village.
  e takes Bad Omens.
  e receives Bad Omens
  e moves their deck to the discard.
  Innovation loses track of Cursed Village (it was covered up).
  e looks at a Cursed Village, 2 Estates, 3 Coppers and a Silver.
  e topdecks 2 Coppers.
  e discards Bad Omens.

I just creamed someone with Palace points. I played a Treasure Hunter right after he activated his Lamp, gaining 5 Silvers, then I could get Golds with my own Wishes. I didn't even plan this; it just ended up that way. I ended up with exactly 5 Coppers, 5 Silvers and 5 Golds.

I'm not actually sure which side you're saying got unlucky here. Having 3 Golds replaced with 3 Farmlands could either be good or bad depending on when in the game it happened; the results could have ended up either far better or far worse for either player.

Indeed that did occur to me. If we're to assume that Gold was still available, then clearly the Swindler-player felt that he was getting an advantage out of playing Swindler; that the Farmlands were worse than just another Gold would be. But even so, The question is still is it "not your day for Swindler because you lost 3 Golds"? Or is it "not your day for Swindler because all you got out of playing it 3 times was trashing 3 Golds"? In either case, things could have gone much worse for either the attacker or for one being attacked.

*Edit* I mean either way, it is indeed a semi-interesting moment, simply based on the fact that it hit 3 copies of the same card 3 times in a row. I just wasn't clear on the intended meaning of the comment.

Nothing here suggests that the Gold pile is empty. As you can see, the acting player buys a Gold after performing all the attacks. It could be that that Gold was the last one in the pile, but we wouldn’t know that, unless we witnessed the game being played.

Drawing cards, gaining +actions, and using them to play cost reduction and +buys (also known as an "engine") is a legit strategy. Perhaps it isn't an optimal way of playing that deck considering the apparent high ratio of Markets/Menageries in their deck and the questionable number of Coppers given that Count is also in the kingdom, but that's far from "buy all the things".

It feels incredibly late to be buying Inheritance, for one. And if they're trying for a Bridge megaturn it seems they haven't thinned enough and have bought too much distracting cruft. Conversely, if they're not trying for a Bridge megaturn, do they really need even one Bridge in a kingdom with Market, and shouldn't they have started greening by now?

Plus, that doesn't look like the kind of deck Menagerie will work in.

Any number of Bridges is better than no Bridges in an engine regardless of Market's presence in the kingdom, Menagerie works in any engine, and all of the cards that are visible in that log are either starting cards or cards that positively contribute towards the engine strategy.

Post by: Erick648 on March 20, 2019, 05:22:01 pm
If nothing else, having an abundance of Markets, coupled with Bridge, Talisman, and seemingly having already bought a lot of cards, creates the possibility of three-piling the moment you get the lead ("With 3 Bridges, many Markets, and a Talisman in play, I buy 2 Provinces, then buy several cheap cards, gaining copies with Talisman, and ending the game due to three piles being empty.").  True, a fast strategy might be able to gain too much of a lead for this, but without knowing what Wolphmaniac was doing, we can't say whether that was a danger here.

Yeah it’s the classic BoM + Throne Room + Feast question basically. If you Throne Room a BoM normally, then Throne Room plays the BoM a second time except it’s not a BoM anymore, so you can’t choose a new card; you’re just playing that card. But if you use it on a one-shot, then when you play it again it’s back to being a BoM again, so you choose a new card when you play BoM.

IRL, I play with a modded version of Wild Hunt. But I just played an online game with Wild Hunt with no villages and only two non-terminal actions, but it also had the Peasant line. So I put the +action token on Wild Hunt and destroyed my opponent.
(A big reason I don't like Wild Hunt and Farmer's Market is they heavily favor the person who's already ahead. First person to be able to play a few Wild Hunts in one turn has a huge advantage.)

On another note, it's hard to find an even match online. That game I destroyed my opponent. The game before that I got completely crushed. It's seems to go one way or the other most of the time.

I don't know if you know this, but you can click on "Advanced Options" to adjust the min and max rating of your opponent. The default is +10 and -10; I set it to +5 and -5, and I feel like I usually get pretty good opponents that way. There is of course still some variance in how good people are who have a given rating.

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.

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.

Plot twist, his brother was stacking the deck and swapping cards with sleight of hands.

if you Procession with Way of the Turtle out you can Turtle the second play and then you don't have to trash the card

Oh, that's pretty cool!  It's almost like it makes the action into a "now and at the start of your next turn" Duration!  Plus it would still gain a more expensive card!

Way of the Turtle + Bounty Hunter + Castles

I just had a game where all three of those were in play.  Also Replace, but that was a much less significant card.  I bought several Bounty Hunters, and simply kept them aside when not needed.  Then, whenever I'd draw a Victory card in my initial hand, I'd use a Bounty Hunter on it.  Castles became a viable strategy.  And since the Castles all have different names, Bounty Hunter would get a $3 bonus each time it Exiled one, making it that much easier to buy the next Castle!  Replace added a bit of a bonus, too.  Trash copper to Estate, normally not a very useful move, but since Estate would get Exiled quickly, they didn't weigh my deck down, and the cursing of my opponents helped.  And Replace also helped to get some of the more expensive Castles as well.

Ill-Gotten Gains, especially if you have a source of extra buys, makes it really easy to pick up Wayfarers, at the cost of gaining one copper

And if you happened to also have Monastery in your hand, even that extra copper's not actually a cost, since you can immediately trash it

Populate (on the right boards, of course) helps power up your Horn of Plentys (though you have to get those separately).

On a board with no buys, the extra Province I got from this put me over the top.

Played a Bounty Hunter and Exiled a Cavalry for $3.  Then, went into my Buy phase and bought another Cavalry, discarding the exiled Cavalry and getting +2 Cards +1 Buy and going back into my Action phase (with the Action I had left over).  The cards I drew were a Copper and an Estate.  Played my Cavalry, then went back into the Buy phase and played the Copper I drew. The Copper I drew and the +$3 I got from Bounty Hunter thus paid for the Cavalry, so I netted a free Cavalry along with what I would've bought anyways!
Title: Re: Semi-Interesting Dominion Moments Thread
Post by: Gherald on March 22, 2020, 03:36:38 am
But did you really want a free Cavalry? It's strictly worse than Sleigh unless you're trashing it for some benefit.

Excluding the on-gain abilities, Cavalry and Sleigh are just a weird way to use up an action into a delayed net of +2 cards (or horse fodder for trashing, if you have need of that; there are games where the horse pile runs out)

So, eh, getting one for "free" is often quite a skippable deal unless you're flooded in actions. The best time to get a Cavalry is when the on-gain +2 cards is going to let you continue playing a meaningful turn.

Way of the Mouse was Improve, and Flagbearer was in the game.  So, I could get the flag by buying Flagbearer.  And then later, I could play it as Improve, trashing itself, gaining a $5 card, and also taking the flag back (but even if the flag hadn't been taken from me, Flagbearer's not that useful in your deck, so replacing it with a $5 card is still good)  And since both Improve and Flagbearer have +$2 as their on-play ability, it plays the same way

So, in a multiplayer game, if you play Gatekeeper, and then another player plays a Cultist or Marauder, you end up being the only one who actually gets a Ruin in their deck, because the others get to Exile the Ruin (unless the other players have already Exiled the specific Ruin they're gaining, of course)

Just had a game with Familiar, Flag Bearer and Werewolf, no trashing, no villages, so a proper junkfest.

I have the flag, after a fairly hard battle, and am 4vp in the lead, just need to pile out 4 estates for a win (the set has pawn so some +buy).

My opponent plays Werewolf as a night, hit's Locusts. Trashes a Curse for me. Sweet.

Next turn, I play a Werewolf as a night, hit War, and it trashes one of my opponents flag bearers, giving him the flag.

With his 6 card hand, he plays a Werewolf as an action, and just hits a Province... he won by 1 vp.

I've had this happen once in a real game with 3 total players. The other players weren't great, but it was still interesting. I don't remember the entire kingdom, but it at least had Forge, Magpie, Remodel, Raze, Settlers, and Worker's Village. I mainly got a bunch of Magpies and used Forge to turn them into provinces. My final deck was Remodel, Settlers, Duchy, and 4 Provinces (I think I remodeled Forge into Province on my last turn).

One time, a Grand Market of mine fell to an enemy Bandit, but I scooped it back up with Treasurer only after playing Forager.

Even before the errata, trashing Pillage was not optional. The errata only makes the attack and the Spoils gain dependent on the trashing, but in any version you have to trash Pillage when play it.

Yeah, but using something like Necromancer would actually get you the benefits of the old Pillage--since the attack and Spoils weren't dependent on the trashing, you could get the attack and Spoils by using Necromancer on a Pillage in the trash.

No, to exchange a card requires returning it to its pile. It is impossible to return the Vampire to its pile in this case because the Vampire pile is not part of the game.

So. Merchant Guild + Haggler + Cavalry.

Setup: play a lot of Merchant guilds and Hagglers.

Buy cards. Gain coin tokens via Merchant guilds. Gain additional buys and cards via Cavalry's. Return to your buy phase, which allows you to spend the extra coin tokens.

Bonus: have about 20 horses in your deck. Then you can buy Mechant guilds and play them in the same turn. This gives you even more coin tokens and more buys.

There was 1 province left and it was my opponents turn. Opponent played a rabble and made me topdeck a province, ensuring I would have a dud turn (I only had a village and 4 coppers in hand). I had a small points lead, so my opponent ended their turn buying duchies.

But... before they ended their turn they played a werewolf, revealing the locusts hex. It trashed the top of my deck - the province - into a duchy. This meant my turn was no longer a dud, and I was able to draw a hunting party and win.

Ironically, if they had bought the last province, they would have won from the locusts hex hitting green.

Just played an IRL game where Transmute was the key card on the board.

Kingdom: Rogue, Royal Seal, Hunting Lodge, Courtier, Bank, Silk Road, Quarry, Merchant, Masterpiece, Transmute

with Academy and Way of the Horse.

The strategy was to get Transmute to trash estates for golds and coppers for Transmutes, then using those transmutes as Way of the Horse for draw. I ended up buying a masterpiece to fuel my transmutes so I could get more, and Rouge and Courtier were for more money and buys. Academy was just a bonus for villagers with every transmute gain.

Title: Re: Semi-Interesting Dominion Moments Thread
Post by: Gherald on July 10, 2020, 04:26:19 pm
Not that I recall, my targets for Teacher were

Sanctuary +Cards  (only draw engine on the whole board)
Peasant +Action

There wasn't anything else to do with the Teacher

My opponent put +Action on Knights but I think that was wrong or desperation; I had Dame Molly anyway

Looking back I should have waited to exile the Estate instead of trashing it, I was just happy to finally have a moment to get rid of it. Decks still didn't have much economy nor engine components at that stage, it had been a long dragged out Knight war with no enablers.

Way of the Turtle + Citadel functions like a quasi-Prince.  Once you Turtle an Action card, then it's automatically the first card you play the next turn turn, allowing you to, on your next turn, play it for its standard Action, and then Turtle it again for the next turn!  You can thus play the same card at the start of every single turn, like Prince, except that it's not restricted to a card costing $4 or less!  And even better, unlike Prince, you're not stuck using the same card every time - you can swap out Action cards at any time, and if the card's action is one that you would not want to always have to play, you can simply use Turtle for both plays

Bought Cathedral in a game with Goons.  My thinking was "Hey, this'll be great!  I can buy coppers for the VP and then trash them with Cathedral!"

... Completely overlooking the fact that my opponent would also be buying Goons.  *facepalm*  I kept ending up with two-card hands after my opponent's Goons attack followed by Cathedral's trashing.  Thankfully my opponent made the same mistake of buying Cathedral, and so we were both in the same boat, making for a rather slow game

Triumph + Black Cat

The Triumph-ing player gains an Estate, then gets an extra VP for each Curse that comes their way. Maybe you play your Cats anyway for the draw, maybe the junking still hurts, or maybe you give them the win if trashing is strong.

I just had a game that I kinda felt bad about taking the win.  With one Colony left, my opponent was ahead by 9 points.  Going into their buy phase, they had exactly $11.  So, I expected that the game would be over.  Instead they bought ... a Platinum.  I was like "... what the heck?" Then my turn, I had $14 going into my buy phase, bought the last Colony and won by 1 point.  I was so surprised that I asked in the chat "Why didn't you buy that Colony?  You would've won!" but they didn't answer, so I don't know what their thinking was behind buying a Platinum instead of ending the game 19 points ahead.  They should've had that game, I almost felt guilty taking the win

Hand: Gold, Gold, Silver, Animal Fair, Transmogrify; & a transmogrify on the tavern mat.

One Province left in the supply, no empty piles, six points down.

You would think this hand can get 7 VP and win. I thought so too, but eventually gave up and ended the game in a draw.

Reason: WOLF DEN.

More of an amusing quirk than anything useful, but I've had a few games with both Goons and Gatekeeper.  If you play Goons after your opponent's played Gatekeeper, the first time that happens, you can buy a Copper for the VP and not have it in your deck.  Of course, that only works once, and assumes you haven't Exiled any Coppers before then, so it's definitely not a useful interaction.  But I do find it a bit amusing

If +buys are plentiful, then Advance + Looters is an interesting combo.  Had a game where my opponent kept giving me ruins with Marauder, and I'd turn around and use Advance to turn them into $5 Action cards.  The Ruins still slowed me down a bit, of course, since they took up space in my hand, and took two shuffles before I could use said $5 Action cards, but it was still a useful way to deal with them

Post by: ipofanes on October 29, 2020, 08:30:57 am
I am wondering often which kingdoms would most heavily discourage looters. Way of the Horse has been discussed, but Advance is also very high on the list. Action trashers like Sacrifice and Zombie Apprentice are also good counters, even if not as ubiquitous as the two card-shaped things. Way ot the Turtle would get Ruins out of the way (pun intended) at the cost of an action. Way of the Butterfly rids in a similar fashion but returns Ruins so Marauder will have ammunition till the end of the match. Scrying Pool makes ruins almost transparent, though a Ruined Market on top of an Estate is worse than an Estate as the top of the draw pile. Library sort of mitigates the impact of Ruins though it probably wouldn't discourage opening Marauder.

Don't get greedy.
Let's say you have 7 targets of $4 and 3 Provinces in a 30 card deck. So 20/30 ties, 7/30 wins and 3/30 losses. 7-3 = 4. So your EV (expected value) is positive and you should go for it. If however you have a lower rating than your opponent, a tie is worth more than 0 and your EV for taking the risk might be lower than not taking the risk.

Beats me, but then we can just add in "How much do you care about the rating system?" to the set of relevant questions.

I don't care about the rating system, and I respect the fact that according to the Dominion rule book a tie is equivalent to a win; so my judgment about whether to go for the risky win over the certain tie in that scenario might be different than someone who assigns different values to those factors.

Since the Dominion rules don't give any sort of indication of a proper ranking system, that's completely up to the implementers of any such ranking system, and I don't see any problem with awarding "you both win" differently than "you alone win". And then whether you show that to the user as "both win" or as "tie" is simply a meaningless wording choice.

So, I just had a game with Orchard, Rats, Transmogrify, Hireling, Marauder, and Piazza, along with a bunch of other non-terminal Actions (plus one alt-VP card).  It ended up being a rather interesting game.  Rats would turn junk into more Rats (and it helped that my opponent used Marauder quite a bit, giving Rats plenty of fuel), then Transmogrify would turn those Rats into other Actions.  Hireling helped to increase the likelihood of lining up a Rats with a Transmogrify, while Piazza occasionally hit a Rats, but by using Piazza after the Hireling draws, I avoided having to trash any good cards.  So, I was careful to keep the number of Rats right around 3 while racking up Orchard points with Transmogrified Rats.  At the end of the game, I had *32 points* from Orchard alone, and the trash was full of Rats, Coppers, Ruins, and Shelters, and a handful of other cards

With one Province left on the board, I was 6 points behind.  In my hand I had a Province, a Count, a Copper, a Silver, and a Gold, and also one Coffers, and a Transmogrify on my Reserve mat.  I found myself wishing I had an extra Coffers so I could Transmogrify my Count into a Duchy and still buy a Province to win instead of tie.  Then I realized - I could Transmogrify my Silver into an Estate and still have $8 after using the Coffer and the Count, winning the game by 1.  Probably the only time I've ever Transmogrified a Silver into an Estate rather than the other way around!

Had a game with Quarry, Grand Market, and Ball.  Quarry drops the price of GM to $4, allowing it to be gained via Ball.  And since GM's copper restriction is for buying, not gaining, it became very easy to gain GMs early in the game.  Taking the -$1 token was a very small price to pay in this situation!

My opponent had played Gatekeeper on their turn.  On my turn, I had an empty discard pile, with $4 and 2 buys.  Fisherman was on the board.  I bought a Fisherman for $2, and since there was no Fisherman on my Exile mat, that went into Exile, meaning my discard pile was *still* empty, allowing me to buy a second Fisherman for $2, getting the first one out of Exile.  So, their Gatekeeper let me buy 2 Fisherman for just $4, ironically benefitting me

Villa was in the kingdom which would have allowed some cool shenanigans with playing those golds, but the pile was empty.

In a game with Grand Market, Bustling Village, and Livery, I completely emptied out the Horses pile on my last turn.  With 4 Liveries in play, and a huge amount of coins and buys, I bought something like 3 Provinces and 5 or 6 Duchies.  With 4 Horses coming along with each buy, that completely emptied out the Horse pile.  My opponent only had 3 Horses, and I'd played all of mine before going into the buy phase, so there were 27 Horses left.  Of course, since that was the last turn, those Horses didn't do me any good, but still, it was pretty cool to see the Horses pile go from almost full to empty (this was an online game, IRL I wouldn't've bothered since it was the last turn)

Keep Game.

Black Cat + Replace can lead to some amusing interactions. You give your opponent a Curse when you gain a Victory card, but then they react with their Black Cat to give you a Curse too. Or, actually, their Black Cat's reaction would come first, before you give out a Curse, so if there's only one Curse left, they could end up not getting a Curse

This doesn't work though.  Found that out when ambassadoring estates.  The other player only gains a curse when it isn't your turn.  Unless it is someone else giving them Replaced Victory cards in a 3+ player game. Though you do get to play the black cat for draw in the case of ambassador.  If it's Replace they only gain a curse, not Victory Card.

Yes, and when you are playing Replace to gain a Victory card, it usually isn't your opponent's turn, so you do gain the Curse from their Black Cat.

That's not what I was saying.  What I said was this:

Player A trashes a Gold to gain a Province
Player B reacts with their Black Cat to give Player A a Curse
Player A's Replace then gives Player B a Curse

(And in a 3-player game poor Player C ends up with two Curses, one from Player A's Replace and one from Player B's Black Cat)

So the person who played Replace ends up getting cursed too.  I didn't mean it as "this is a useful interaction", but as "this is kind of a funny interaction"

In a game with Idols and Trader, and lots of +buy, both my opponent and I had trashed all of our Estates, and I'd gotten one curse, while my opponent had none.  There were two empty piles, and one (Engineer) with 4 cards left.  Near the end of my Action phase, I had 4 buys and a total of $15, with two Idols, a Trader, and the Curse I'd gotten earlier from their Idols. My last Action of that turn was to trash the Curse with my Trader.  Then I played my treasure, gave my opponent a Curse with my Idols, and bought all four Engineers, winning the game with a score of 0 to -1!  My opponent had a much stronger engine, so if I hadn't managed to end the game there, I would surely have lost. But I managed to end the game before their engine could kick off

yeah i do this all the time. Same with provinces. The use a salvager to take the last two provinces out is a favorite move of mine...

Played a game with Flag Bearer and Way of the Mouse, where the card played by Mouse was Improve. It was an interesting interaction, since Improve and Flag Bearer have exactly the effect when you play them, but then at Clean-Up, you can trash the Flag Bearer for a $5 card, allowing you to take the Flag both when you gain the card and at Clean-Up after playing it

Improve is one of the few cards that would be significantly stronger if it cost more. I think it shares that property with Band of Misfits,

My opponent's Locusts hex hit my Duchy, in a game where I was going for Dukes. So, in addition to the 2 points lost from the Duchy itself, each of my Dukes was now worth 1 point less.  I ended the game with 5 Dukes, so the total cost of that hex was 7 points

Turn 1 - ehunt

e draws 2 Coppers.
e plays 6 Coppers. (+$6)
e buys and gains a Gold.
e shuffles their deck.
e draws 2 Coppers, a Hovel, a Necropolis and an Overgrown Estate.


tbh gold wasn't a great open on this board but had to do it for the novelty of it. There was also Mint, so i could've started turn two with exactly mint, copper, and the three shelters, but novelty only gets you so far.

Had a game with Way of the Mouse as Church, Caravan Guard, and Margrave. If I happened to have a Caravan Guard in hand when my opponent played Margrave, then I could react with the Caravan Guard, play it as Church, and set aside three cards, leaving only one remaining. Then Margrave makes me draw a card, and since I still have only 2 cards, I don't discard. Meaning that the net result is I got +1 card! That didn't happen a whole lot in that game, but when it did, it was a rather fun interaction. Not often that your opponent's Margrave leaves you with more cards than you started with ...

Although, the server did have a weird glitch here. It would discard the Caravan Guard at the end of my opponent's turn. The duration effect would still apply properly - the cards would be returned to my hand at the start of my turn and I'd have the option of trashing, but the Caravan Guard would be in my discard pile.

I got a turn 3 Province with Shelters + Way of the Owl. On turn 1, I had a Necropolis and 4 Coppers. I used Way of the Owl on Necropolis, and drew two Coppers, buying a Gold on turn 1. I forget what happened in turn 2, but in Turn 3, I had Necropolis again, with 4 Coppers. Played Necropolis with Owl, and drew that Gold plus another Copper, for a total of $8!

It really wasn't the most sensible thing to buy that early in that particular game, but I couldn't resist the novelty of a turn 3 Province

If you're in the lead with 7 points or more, but don't have $8 to get the last province, you can Ambassador it to your opponent, keeping your own Province of course. Your lead can be smaller if you can buy/gain another Victory card (like a Duchy) on that turn.
I remember this trick from games with more than 2 players, because then you can suddenly empty the Province pile by handing out several Provinces.

Not a combo that I'm likely to come across again, but:

I had a game with Way of the Horse + Collection + Magpie + Storyteller, which allowed a truly ridiculous number of VP tokens to accumulate: Horse let me continuously refill the Magpie pile, and by playing a Storyteller with Collection, Magpie's self-gaining acquired even more tokens, so I just kept gaining VP tokens from Magpie

Way of the Horse + Collection can be pretty useful in general already, if there are cheap Actions, and Storyteller + Collection works great with any Action-phase gainer, so the combination of all these cards was pretty sweet

Not that this is surprising, but with a couple collections you can get bonkers points in a supplies game. Just play the collections first (and the +buy helps you acquire more supplies too).  Mine was wall game too, which was great because the horses allow huge draws to get more supplies and collections, and the horses evaporate to essentially give another VP with wall in play.

Huge draws? Unless there are KC or Mastermind in the Kingdom, Supplies does not net draw anything.

it does draw more supplies and collections, though additional draw does help. when you play 2-3 collections and then 3-4 supplies, the near stampede effect allows you to do the same thing one the next turn too, but now you are 6-12 vps points richer.  Plus there are many cards that shine when there +action/draw cards are waiting for you. In my game I had 7 supplies and 5 collections and ended up with like 40-50 pts in a wall game before they resigned.

was playing someone in a villa/chameleon deck and they bought a province with 10 coins, then almost immediately requested an undo.  I thought maybe they decided that they didn't want to green yet and get  a villa and a 6.

They then proceeded to villa and chameleon to a mega draw hand.

Yeah that sounds annoying. But I get that they changed their mind, and sounds like it was still their turn when they did the undo. I probably wouldn’t block them myself, unless it seemed like a deliberate troll/BM play. (or more to the story than you communicated here)

Gotcha, that makes a lot more sense. The way you said it painted a different picture, since in a Villa game “almost immediately requested an undo” would imply they hadn’t hit the “end buys” button and checked out their new hand, which is a more more deliberate move.

yeah I see that. But what I meant is that very often someone buys something and almost immediately undoes it.  Even though they technically saw their cards for a possible 1/2 second, usually it just means a quick buyer's remorse, desire to buy a different card and I'll almost always undo.

I just had a game where I managed to Inherit Destrier in a Kingdom where the only other possible Inheritance target was the non-spammable Bounty Hunter (Supplies, Anvil, Fishing Village, Monkey, Bounty Hunter, Investment, Festival, Hunting Lodge, Mine, Destrier, Inheritance, Way of the Ox, Colonies).  I used Supplies and Anvil to get the required two gains (I also had Festival, but didn't wind up needing to buy a Copper), and then used Anvils to gain more Estate-Destriers.  It should be noted that the player to the left of me didn't think to go for Monkeys, or that might have given me pause about gaining so many cards a turn (pointing out that possibility at the end of the game got Monkey vetoed from future games by the player to my right, since she couldn't have benefitted from Monkey like the player to my left could have).

I also discovered a minor synergy between Exile thinners like Bounty Hunter and Inheritance:  Normally, Inheritance games make you choose between trashing your Estates to reach Inheritance faster and keeping your Estates for when Inheritance kicks in, but Bounty Hunter lets you thin your Estates from your deck short term and still get them back once they're actually useful.  It might not be too helpful on faster boards, but it's still better than trashing your Estates.

Way of the Worm works really nice there, too. Use Worm to put a few Estates in Exile, and then discard them all once you've bought Inheritance and gained an Estate. You can even do that after you get Inheritance, as long as you make sure to avoid Exiling the last Estate

With the new Tax, Black Cat can give your opponent debt (assuming it's reacting to a Victory card they bought or otherwise gained during their Buy phase)

I'm not sure if that would ever be a particularly strong effect, but it's certainly a novel one, since up till now there's never been a way to give someone debt (the -$1 token being the closest thing)

If you can then trash your opponent's last money or gainer, this can serve as a pin, albeit likely too difficult to be a problem.

It's not strictly better because it costs 2 favors to gain a cheaper card and guildmaster only gives one favor when you buy a card.

With one Province left, I started my turn with a Gold, two Coppers, and a couple of Victory cards in my hand, with 2 Coffers. Not quite enough to buy the last Province

But, then I realized, I had two Favors with Crafters' Guild as the Ally. And I'd bought the Guildhall Project. So, I used Crafters' Guild to gain a Silver, giving me an extra Coffer, and now I had $8 to buy the last Province!

This was one of the better turn 7 wins I've seen.  While he technically didn't end it on t 7.  This game was over t 7.  Early on when he gained a villa over trails n stuff I thought "why is he doing that?  That seems kinda dumb.  I was very very wrong.

Really impressive.  Props to PopperMcgee for whipping my ass.  :o

This is wrong. Guildmaster gives a favor when you gain a card. So if you play Guildmaster, gain a card, and use Architects' Guild to get a cheaper card, you spent 2 Favors and gained 2 Favors. Since you start with a favor, you can already do this the very first time you play Guildmaster.

Had a game with Tent + Way of the Mouse being Secret Cave. You could use Secret Cave's duration, but then also topdeck Tent, so you'd get the duration effect without the card staying in play. Fortunately it was an online game, but in an IRL game, tracking would probably be pretty tricky. This would apply to any other Duration card as Mouse, and to Merchant Camp, Walled Village, and Border Guard with Horn (the other self-topdecking cards have the self-topdecking as part of their on-play effect, which would be replaced by Mouse's effect)

I had a 5/2 opening in a game with Summon, Horse Trader, and Berserker. So, turn 1, bought Summon to gain Horse Trader. Turn 2, play that Horse Trader, discarding two Estates, leaving me with $5, which I used to buy a Berserker, and since I had Horse Trader in play, that meant I got to play Berserker on Turn 2. Not often you get to play Berserker in the opening!

There are several other combinations with Necropolis that would do that trick, too. I can think of Necropolis + Ways of the Sheep, Horse, Monkey, Mule, Otter, Owl, and Seal, and sometimes Mouse, depending on which card is set aside. Also, Necropolis + Cursed Gold and Necropolis + Baker

Necropolis + Nomad Camp + Way of the Butterfly or Necropolis + Trail/Villa + Way of the Butterfly could work as well

just played a swindler tax game.  funny to tax curses and then give a debt with curse on the next turn.  JOAT was also on board.  Taxing the silver becomes a pretty strong attack, especially if you don't get a JOAT yourself.  But in that game he swindled me one b/c he was so sick of me doing it.

With the new Tax, Black Cat can give your opponent debt (assuming it's reacting to a Victory card they bought or otherwise gained during their Buy phase)

I'm not sure if that would ever be a particularly strong effect, but it's certainly a novel one, since up till now there's never been a way to give someone debt (the -$1 token being the closest thing)

just played a swindler tax game.  funny to tax curses and then give a debt with curse on the next turn.  JOAT was also on board.  Taxing the silver becomes a pretty strong attack, especially if you don't get a JOAT yourself.  But in that game he swindled me one b/c he was so sick of me doing it.

With Tax you only take the debt if it’s your Buy phase. So Swindler, JoAT, and any gainers/Attacks played in the action phase won’t give debt.

Just had a game with Haggler and Guildmaster + Architects' Guild. One of the few times where you actually see one card being strictly better than the other.

...and then my opponent went for Haggler and just to make sure I would not go for the inferior version too they Taxed Haggler three times  :o
It's not strictly better because it costs 2 favors to gain a cheaper card and guildmaster only gives one favor when you buy a card.
This is wrong. Guildmaster gives a favor when you gain a card. So if you play Guildmaster, gain a card, and use Architects' Guild to get a cheaper card, you spent 2 Favors and gained 2 Favors. Since you start with a favor, you can already do this the very first time you play Guildmaster.

Now imagine you could merge these two boards and you have a Guildmaster in play with architects guild. :0

Had a game with Tent + Way of the Mouse being Secret Cave. You could use Secret Cave's duration, but then also topdeck Tent, so you'd get the duration effect without the card staying in play. Fortunately it was an online game, but in an IRL game, tracking would probably be pretty tricky. This would apply to any other Duration card as Mouse, and to Merchant Camp, Walled Village, and Border Guard with Horn (the other self-topdecking cards have the self-topdecking as part of their on-play effect, which would be replaced by Mouse's effect)

weird.  seems like you shouldn't be able to top deck it with the card moved thing or something.  this is kinda huge. thanks!

I am pretty sure that you gained the tax when you gained the silver, but I'm high a lot so I may be misremembering. Maybe it was something else that caused the silver gains as I definitely know the debt got assumed.

i think I may be confusing two games here.  I think they actually swindled me a swindle b/c I had loaded up on so many market squares. I still coulda swore the JOAT took the tax on the silvers, and I am almost positive that I've taken debt with gainers under the new rules. Gonna have to watch this again next time closer.

Actually it seems like it be a bug, since if you played as Way of the Mouse, you wouldn't discard it from play that turn (if you used Secret Cave's duration benefit). From the wiki:

Quote
If the set-aside card is a Duration, then a card played this Way will stay out as long as that Duration would

And Tent's below the line:

When you discard this from play, you may put it onto your deck.

That's a good point. That's definitely how it played online, but now that you mention it, it definitely shouldn't've worked that way

eta I think the gains were coming from Lucky Coin which I still think of as a gainer, but it does gain from the buy phase, and I just didn't notice that all the tax gains were still coming from buys.
