Title: eight Coppers?
Post by: ipofanes on June 10, 2018, 02:40:01 am
Somebody please look at game #15084154, especially my turns 1 and 5 where I trash a total of four Coppers in two Bonfires, and draw another four at the end of turn 5, without me gaining a copper in the meantime.

Am I missing something or is tjis a bug?

Note that the issue is already present on turn 3, where you play 3 Coppers, and draw 3 more Coppers without reshuffling after trashing 2 to Bonfire. No idea what's causing this though.

It seems that your first Bonfire play only trashed 1 Copper from your deck, even though the log says that it trashed 2.
Stef is going to look into that soon.

In order to make it more like real-life Dominion, ShuffleIT allows your opponent to sneak a Copper into your deck while you arenít looking.

Sounds rather like real-life Munchkin to me.

Thanks for reporting this one, sure is a weird one.
Your client instructed the server to trash the same copper twice. Two things:
1) This shouldn't be possible assuming you use our client.
2) The server should not consider this a valid response.


re 2: is actually a serious issue. The server should check that all the answers from the client are different but apparently it doesn't on list-questions.
It should reject this answer like it rejects any other invalid answer from the client. Bonfire has the optional trash anyway, but this probably means you could currently cheat by writing your own client and trashing only 1 card to Trading Post.

re 1: I assume you didn't hack the client, and it's actually our client that generated this answer. It shouldn't, but there wouldn't be a real issue if the server would just reject it.

re 1: I was using the Shuffle IT client.

The better way to make it more like a real life board games is to mimic poor shuffling :p

See here (https://www.pagat.com/marriage/marias.html) under "The Deal". I was mildly shocked to read this.
