Title: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry
Post by: Thisisnotasmile on July 28, 2011, 10:59:40 am
Okay, this is a thread to post games where you did something that made you actually feel sorry for your opponent. Post the game, explain why you are sorry, and let discussion ensue. Here's one to get the ball rolling:

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110724-031944-b624ac7c.html

The score graph says it all. I build a Scrying Pool deck that can comfortably draw itself every single turn, with King's Courts thrown in for good measure. I then pull the only Possession out of the Black Market and proceed to play 4 times as many turns as my opponent does for the rest of the game. Rubric3, I am sorry. Thanks for sticking it out until the end though!

I have a fondness for decks with 3-4 Torturers in them...  I always feel a little bad for my opponents when I get them going (particularly if they're newer/lower-ranked and it may be the first time it's happening to them).  Sucks to be consistently hit with multiple Torturers every turn.

One game from a long time ago: KC-Saboteur-ambassador-pirate ship stuff. I forgot what was the card that tied them together, but I am at a point where I can feed my opponent 6 coppers a turn, pirate 3, and sabotage 3 times. The game went to a point where the card he bought was immediately sabotaged and he could almost never draw it in hand, while my pirate ships grew to $10 or something.

I remember once reducing my deck down to chapel, pirate ship, bazaar, saboteur, saboteur. My opponent was ostensibly winning and it would have been a risk for me to buy any cards since my opponent could potentially sabotage my pirate ship and leave me without any spending. On the other hand his deck wasn't progressing as I could sabotage and pirate each turn. He quit in rage eventually, which is rather sad as he should have won by buying a high cards, letting them sabotage down as victory points, and exhausting three piles.

Yes, I feel immediately sorry for the Torturer scenario.  As soon as you see Torturer + a source of 2 actions... you know with 97% certainty that the game is going to be ugly, and one player isn't going to want to play dominion again for a while after it.

Losing due to torturer lock is one of the few times that I'll break my rule of "never waste a loss by ragequitting"

So I really like double-Tactician decks, but of course they require cards with +$ on them otherwise you're going nowhere. Well I was playing a game where I wanted to go for such a deck, and the only virtual cash Actions were Pirate Ship and Mountebank. Salvager (technically also virtual cash I guess) and Upgrade were available for trashing, and I chose the more reliable and harmful Mountebanks for the cash. The village du jour was City, and the +2 card effect never mattered; may as well have been a normal Village.
Working with just Mountebanks for money you need 4 to buy a Province, so that's generally what I was working toward, but I didn't exactly figure out I should get 4 Mountebanks and stop playing Salvager; I bought a Gold near the end that just got Salvaged the next turn before figuring that out. Really this just dragged it out for my poor opponent, since I was playing multiple Mountebanks every turn...and then there's the real kicker: Ghost Ship. Every turn. He resigned once I bought my fourth Mountebank, and at the time he still technically had a lead of 5 points.

tl;dr: My double-Tactician deck used Mountebanks for cash, and I also was playing a Ghost Ship every turn, before the Mountebanks of course. My opponent resigned once I bought my fourth Mountebank.

Naturally you'd be wondering who would let me do all that without picking up a Ghost Ship or Mountebank for themselves...turns out it was the Larry (http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=263.msg5140#msg5140).

Game log (http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110110-092130-ba4d7c09.html).

[Edit]
I think just looking at the contents of my final deck does just as much to describe my opponent's pain as my whole post does...
[13 cards] 4 Cities, 4 Mountebanks, 2 Tacticians, 1 Ghost Ship, 1 Salvager, 1 Province

One more game, but I can keep this post short. This one was against mikemike, and the three relevant words are...King's Court, Ambassador. My final deck had 1 Copper and 28 other cards, his final deck had 10 Curses, 46 Coppers, and 28 other cards.

But isn't it only rage quitting if you post some hate/smack talk before quitting? More often now if I'm clearly losing and watching my oppenent play a 10 card chain and leaving me with nowhere to go I'll simply congratulate them for playing well and resign (only in 1 v 1, quitting in a 3/4 player game often affects the outcome).

I can take being beaten (it happens very often) but if there is nothing to learn I don't waste my time.

Perhaps we need to adopt a term for resigning gracefully to counter rage quit.

I often build Torturer-based draw decks and when my opponent's nag about them, I always tell them: "I need them for the draw!".

It's annoying after the Curses run out and they still have to pick if they want to discard; I guess this is only useful with:


I probably forgot some...

Harakiri? Maybe some ranking penalties for rage quits and no penalty and a nice text for graceful defeats?

I do my best to resign gracefully (unless I tell my opponent I intend to resign, and then he continues to play another 5 minute turn), I meant rage quitting from the perspective of being so angry I close my browser, instead of going back into the lobby and using my 1st player advantage to challenge some unsuspecting high level player.

I don't think it's THAT rude to play as if the game was carrying on until it's natural conclusion even if your opponent has told you they intend to resign. I mean, if you want to resign, go ahead when it is your turn. But there's no chance I'm dropping the Torturer lock so that you can decide you're not actually going to resign because now you've got a turn with 2 Fishing Villages and 3 Torturers in your hand.

Post by: shark_bait on August 03, 2011, 05:00:05 pm
I just finished one of these.  I don't think I've ever felt more guilty playing a game of dominion before.  I had my opponent in a KK/alchemist/pirate ship/spy lock.  They didn't get on the bandwagon fast enough.  Every turn I played KK on alchemist/spy to draw my deck and find their treasure.  Then I played the KK/pirate ship to steal the treasure from their deck.  The most painful part was that there was no plus buy.  So even though my pirate ships were worth $12ish, I could only buy one colony per turn making it a slow and torturous (discard 2 or take a curse anyone...) game for them.

I completely dismantled this poor person's deck with a kc/sab.  I think most of us have been on the losing end of kc decks and it is a very disheartening way to lose.  On the other hand, I do not pull punches with newbies that accept auto-matches with me and it was, in my opinion anyway, the dominant strategy in this kingdom.

I've been that person (the one who gets told that his opponent is going to resign, and then takes a long turn).  It's a little hard for me to figure out what to do.  I mean, yes, he told me he's going to resign, and that's great and I try to play fast.  But it's some random dude on the internet, y'know?  How am I supposed to know if he'll keep his word?  I don't want to throw away a winning game because my opponent psy-opped me.

Post by: WanderingWinder on August 08, 2011, 05:10:51 pm
I agree. If there's some way to keep a stable advantage in a quick turn, I'll do it. Or, if it's someone I know, like you, Frisk, I'll just trust you. But generally I'll play my turn.

Post by: rod- on August 08, 2011, 05:19:04 pm
If you're in a situation where your opponent could possibly win by you skipping a turn, you're probably not in a situation where your opponent will claim he is resigning.  If you ARE in one of those situations, go right ahead and take your 5 minute turn, the game's not over yet.
Title: Re: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry
Post by: WanderingWinder on August 08, 2011, 05:56:53 pm
rod-, the situation I'm thinking of is some kind of mega-pin (or maybe just a big alchemist or scrying pool chain). If you let them out of the pin, there's no telling what they could do.
Title: Re: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry
Post by: Epoch on August 08, 2011, 06:12:48 pm
I think that there are plenty of games where you can go from essentially 100% chance of winning to, you know, 80% chance of winning by skipping a turn.  Sure, I could skip my mega-turn, and still PROBABLY win, but I want to DEFINITELY win.  I agree that that's kind of ultra-competitive and lame of me, but I'm not sure that there's an alternative.

(I note that I've played against Captain Frisk and agree that he's a gentleman and I would be happy to take his word for a resign.  But random handle I've never met?)
Title: Re: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry
Post by: Mean Mr Mustard on August 08, 2011, 07:54:51 pm
By all means, play your last turn against a random player.  The flip side of this is to truncate your megaturn any time you can safely end the game with a win.

I also don't pull punches with newbs who accept automatches with me. And this was the first time I'd ever gotten all eight colonies, so it made me pretty happy. I appreciate the guy for hanging in there and letting me have that feeling.

Post by: Superdad on August 09, 2011, 10:41:22 am
I come from a very competitive background (Varsity/minor league baseball growing up, competitive cards, and even the competitive workplace)... so the very thought of giving my opponent a break simply does not register to me.

IMO, if it's a "rated" match, it qualifies as a competitive environment. There is nothing I would ever do to reduce my winning percentage (excluding ethics/moral issues, such as declining to abuse some programming bug, etc).

If someone is playing anonymously for a non-rated game, then sure, I'll skip my turn, heck I'd even resign myself and in my head know that I won. But if it's a rated game, even though there's really no money involved... it's rated, it's competitive. 

Someone says they'll resign on their turn? Sure go for it, but first you are going to sit through my turn, because I'm going to quad-province after my 2 min combo. If you don't like it, go take a bio break and resign when you get back, but I'm not giving away any edge. Life is tough. Nut-up Sally.

Speaking of beating up on Newbies, I am quite sorry about this game: 

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110807-183008-d931a3d1.html

It is never a good thing if one player gains all 5 prizes.  I was mildly disappointed that I didn't manage to get more buys on my last turn.  I should probably have used Princess on my last KC, but it only gives more buys, so I was hoping for better.


This other game I am sorry about mostly because I stumbled into this combo on accident. 

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110717-141335-8fd56ee6.html

I didn't realize what I was doing until I was already doing it.  The game started out with me thinking I was dead in the water on turn 3 drawing $1P (and all my Estates) on a Familiar board.  I was happy to take my consolation prize of back to back $5 hands which got me two Minions.  I got my first Familiar on turn 6, and then proceeded to draw all 3 Estates again.  I picked up a Lighthouse with my $2 hand, but being the mediocre player that I am, I didn't realize just how amazing it was in this setup until I started playing it.  From that point on, I blocked all incoming Familiar attacks, cycled to mine using Minions and drove the Curse split to 6-2 before my opponent decided it was over and resigned.

Dear Opponent,

In re http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110809-110704-5b121eed.html I'm sorry...

- that Scrying Pool turns take so long to play
- that your Swindler was somewhat unlucky in the early game
- that I failed to notice I could end the game on turn 15, simply by Ambassadoring you the last two Throne Rooms at the end of the turn
- that it'll probably be awhile until the next time I see Scrying Pool + University + Throne Room on the same board

- My opponent sticking around the entire game and watching me buy 8 Colonies and even saying "gg" afterwards

Dear opponent,

I am deeply sorry I trashed ALL of my treasures and let you keep buying pirate ships and thieves for some time before I pointed out the fact that I had no treasures. I'm also sorry I proceeded to buy all 8 colonies after doing so.

I didn't feel bad until the engine halted for a turn with only 1 torturer and nothing else and my opponent was unable to do anything anyway.

Just had my house mate rage quit on me in real life. I had Chapeled everything except action cards, and had a Village chain going (Some were Cities, but no piles had gone). I was drawing my deck almost every turn, which contained 3 Mountebanks, and also a couple of Bridges. He had decided against buying Mountebanks in favour of Cities and Festivals, had been trashing with a Lookout, and bought a couple of Estates to support his Baron. Suddenly, after I Mountebanked him for about the 9th, 10th and 11th times, he stood up and said "I quit! There's no point playing if you're going to draw all your cards every turn." And he started packing up the cards.

We've both got into Dominion in the past month or so, and have been playing nearly every day. Although I'm now wondering if he'll play with me again any time soon...  :-\

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110816-195801-745c9500.html

I Tortured 16 times, including 5 in one turn, 3 in one, and a couple of 2s. I finally won the game when my opponent took the last Curse, with Torturers and Villages already gone.

He finished with 9 Curses.

In the game I just played:

mqs's turn 16
mqs plays a Potion, a Harem, and 2 Silvers.
mqs buys a Possession.
(mqs reshuffles.)

Your turn 16
You play a Jester.
... You get +$2.
... mqs draws and discards a Possession.
... You gain a Possession.
You play 3 Coppers.
You buy a Duchy.
(You reshuffle.)

Yes, that was his first possession.

Winning the game 70 to -2.
That King's courting bridges, swindling his opponent's bridge into a curse, and remaking Golds into Provinces all happened on the same turn (the turn where he gained two Provinces, bought 4 more Provinces, a Colony, and 4 Duchies.  Ouch).

Not usually. Masquerade is just SO good. The game's going to be so short. If they go for possession, they'll get to play it... maybe once before the end of the game? And then they have to hit a hand where I have the masq. And I'm probably up enough that that swing isn't necessarily going to swing the game anyway. But I mean, it is on my mind. If there is something else that looks good, I'll go for that to avoid this issue.

I've searched a bit and expected to find some games where you went straight Masqu + BM against Possession.
But I wasn't very successful ;-)

This example is about reversed roles (however he didn't go for direct Masq + BM):

I don't have any idea what I was thinking in the first and third games. The second game is more of my point, though a bit lucky for me to get that good of a version of it. These games are all months old (the first one is a little over three months, the second one about 7 weeks, the third one 4 months), which is a function of 1) a specific two cards being in a set is rare, and 2)people don't want to play with possession.
Also, I rarely go 'straight' masq w/money, against anything. My comment was meant to be how I would play on a generic board with those cards today, as clearly I don't necessarily think what I've done in the past is best - who opens gardens?!?! I mean, I love gardens, but really???

I'm sorry I carried out the rest of my last turn in our Univ/Bishop/Rabble game earlier today. If I'd been thinking about the score at all I'd have realized I was ahead and just hit "End Turn" the moment the third pile emptied.  But thank you for not only sticking around but also chatting about the board post-game!

Dear (everyone I've played on isotropic the past week or so),

I'm sorry I've been a whiny/snippy jackass. Playing atrociously or even getting unlucky is no reason to be a bad on-line human being.

What is pictured here: Me winning partly due to going first, and mostly because drawing 2 copper + 3 estate on turn 4, then Bishop and no estates on turn 5 really really hurts.

What is not pictured: I literally spent at least 2 minutes, probably closer to 4 minutes with an action in between, trying to figure out how to make $22 on the last turn. It's too bad you can't see my hand in the log...Let's just say that King's Court + Bishop + Horse Traders + a big enough hand that playing even one more card than needed could make me discard a Platinum I needed for the $22= really big AP.

(If people are curious my hand after KC-KC-Rabble was 2x Horse Traders, 1x Bishop, 1x KC, 1x Haven, 1x Plat, 2x Silver, 1x Copper, 5x Victory cards. I thought I was out of treasure, and I could only get up to $21. Eventually just played the Haven and ended up drawing another Plat, rendering all the previous minutes pretty useless)

Although he managed to take a huge lead by gaining four duchies in a turn (with Remake and Tournament), I manage to draw Possession again near the top of the reshuffle and buy the last two provinces.

I'm also sorry that my shuffle luck (Workshop-Copper-Potion-Estate x 2 on the first shuffle and your Thief trashing my Potion on the third shuffle) wasn't enough to make the game closer. Oh, and I'm sorry that you hadn't seen the Secret Chamber-Scrying Pool trick before.

I opened Masquerade/Silver earlier today and had 4 Provinces by turn 9. The most perfect shuffle luck I've ever had. I was about to apologize for drawing so well when my opponent resigned and promptly left.

I would probably have won anyway since they opened Chapel and aggressively trashed all their bad cards (would have very shortly had to start passing me good cards on my Masquerades), but still.

I introduced dominion to some of my relatives recently.   After a few intro set games, we played a base + seaside game where I crafted a council room/fishing village/militia engine (4p).   While not the cruelest engine, it had the 'hope given ... dashed' factor.  Eg, boosting their hands up to about 7-8 cards while I drew my entire deck, then forcing them to discard down to 3.  We made it through about 3 hands like this before there was a group rage quit. >:(

Needless to say, this was probably a poor choice for introducing beginners to dominion, but at least I was able to convince them to play again a few days later.  ;)

I would apologize to the guy I played yesterday (in my one episode of good luck... no, my one episode of better-than-nauseatingly-bad luck for the day) when I opened with Vault across from Council Room and got Gold at turn 3 followed by Provinces at turns 4 and 5, except that he ragequit and made me wait for the timeout so he's just a terrible person and I hope he dies screaming :-\

That's really not a great board for buying pirate ships. Bazaars, conspirators, cities, bridges and oases should make for a very action heavy deck. Having someone pick your coppers out for you can only make it faster.

Our game from today (http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201110/27/game-20111027-131235-13107260.html) featured a board with King's Court and Goons, and a Black Market from which you were fortunate enough to get a Masquerade on turn 4. You were one turn away from pinning me when I won the game by emptying 3 piles on a turn which netted me 93 points.

The simulator will play Chapel instead of Jack and then only trash 1 Copper, or play a Jack and not trash the Chapel when most of the trashing is done. So I wouldn't conclude that double Jack is better than Single Jack/Chapel based on simulations.

Hunting Party + Tunnel looks pretty good, especially if you can manage to skip Silvers. Obviously you really need an early Hunting Party here. If you don't get the 5/2 opening, something like Mining Village or Feast might be a good opening buy in games with HP + Tunnel.
Ah, Hunting Tunnels. I don't know, on a 3/4 opening you might not have the luxury of skipping Silvers; although Monument/Tunnel looks plausible as an opener too, hoping that everything turns out right for your first HP. But Turn 3 drawing 5 coppers after a 5/2 opening is just brutally good, and definitely worthy of this thread!

Dear Opponent,

I'm sorry I got the 5/2 split with Torturer and FV on the board... then pulled 5 Coppers on T3 for a second Torturer.  I would have resigned after 8 turns against that as well.

Dear nxo004, I am sorry.  I only intended to use the Governors to gain gold, then Watchtower hands full of Gold.  I swear this was just spur of the moment.  I'm not even a good player, I promise.

Well I won't defend my play that game, which I don't think was the best, but I will say this. When you have a worker's village to peddler rush and you lose out on the peddlers badly, your deck of worker's villages suddenly becomes pretty terrible. But you certainly deserve credit for grabbing 7 colonies in 15 turns.

Would he have won the game if your saboteur would have been a duchy? That is (Duchy on your side against his Province) against (nothing on your side against Duchy (?) on his side), no difference.

Dear Gherkin,

I'm sorry that I gained 5 gold on turn 13 through governer/KC combo, then trashed 5 gold for 5 provinces on turn 14 through the same combo.

And to make matters worse, you had a misclick and trashed a province on accident.

One game went like this:
First turn, I buy a Tunnel, she buys a Noble Brigand, revealing a Tunnel and a Copper, giving me a free Gold right before my second turn which made quite a difference. Now that was nice. :)

My last "turn" says it all.  I KC'd and TR'd a Possession and developed my Platinum into a province (so him possessing me wouldn't be effective any more, then took 5 turns in a row using his deck.

Cheers to Basia for being a great sport and congratulating me on a well played hand as I apologized for taking over like that.

I tried to explain it to you twice, but you apparently don't read the comment box.

I probably would have won anyway, but it sure helped that you donated 16 VPs to me - and trashed some money that you could have been spending.

Talking about luck:

How I managed to buy 2 Witches before my 2nd reshuffle (T3 & 4) and NOT have them collide once, is beyond me.
They almost collided, but Trusty Steed saved the day.

My poor opponent who though about getting a Familiar ended up with 9 of the 10 Curses, managed to trash 2 of them, but got obliterated anyway.

Then there was the case of the lucky Tournaments: I had 1, he had 5, I ended up with 3 prizes. Then again, I had more Provinces of course. :) I took the Followers to give him the last Curse and eventually Princess to get that last Province. And of course he played Witch on his turn after the Followers hit, but the Curses were already gone. :p

In fact, I didn't have terminal collision once, except for two Expands, but I simply Expanded the Expand, so it wasn't like I had a completely dead Action card.

It suprised me my opponent didn't ragequit and managed to squeeze out a 'gg'.  ;D

This goes both on the boneheaded plays and the 'dear my opponent, I'm sorry' lists:

In a Worker's Village, Bridge, King's Court game, my opponent gets ridiculously bad luck - never managing to draw his King's Court with anything useful.  On turn 13, I double King's Court my Bridges.  Instead of buying out the Provinces I immediately conclude that I need to 3-pile to end the game.

Only to realize I can't 3-pile.  But I don't have enough buys to get the Provinces anymore because I've now wasted a bunch. 

Despite my idiocy, my opponent STILL can't draw his KC with a Bridge and is unable to close out the game.  So I, like the blind chipmunk who somehow still finds an acorn, stumble to victory by 3-piling it on the next turn.

I got the King's Court +Masquerade part of the pin going, so I was trashing pieces of my opponent's hand every turn, but there were no discard attacks in the kingdom, so I couldn't completely lock them down.  Which meant they spent a huge number of turns sitting through my long-drawn-out Highway>KC+Masq turns, watching their deck be slowly trashed, trying desperately to see if there was something they could do to stop me from destroying their whole deck...and they did slow me down; each card they Masqueraded into my deck was one less that I could trash from their hand on the next turn, and at one point they even forced me to pass them one of the highways I wanted to keep, but really, I think they were doomed.

First time I've ever used KC+Masq...it's stupid.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201201/08/game-20120108-105848-9ae24b01.html

Dear NDOG332,

I am completely sorry that the first four times you played a Young Witch, I had one of my two Pawns (bane cards) in hand, while you never had one of your numerous Pawns in hand any of the eight times I played Young Witch.  That is the sign of an unjust God if ever there was one.

Sincerely,
Epoch

I got the King's Court +Masquerade part of the pin going, so I was trashing pieces of my opponent's hand every turn, but there were no discard attacks in the kingdom, so I couldn't completely lock them down.  Which meant they spent a huge number of turns sitting through my long-drawn-out Highway>KC+Masq turns, watching their deck be slowly trashed, trying desperately to see if there was something they could do to stop me from destroying their whole deck...and they did slow me down; each card they Masqueraded into my deck was one less that I could trash from their hand on the next turn, and at one point they even forced me to pass them one of the highways I wanted to keep, but really, I think they were doomed.

First time I've ever used KC+Masq...it's stupid.

I pulled off the pin for the first time a couple days ago:

First turn that I left my opponent with 0 cards in hand, he just said "wow." He was somewhat new; said it was his first game with King's Court. I was quite happy to get it. :)

KC, Alchemist, Scrying Pool, Jester, only 1 Buy and NO trashing.
What do you get? A game like this: http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201201/09/game-20120109-133939-a9bb4a0d.html (http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201201/09/game-20120109-133939-a9bb4a0d.html)

I'm sorry my deck exploded so soon, giving me 4 consecutive Provinces in turns 12, 13, 14 and 15, nagging some great cards with a KC'd Jester.
I'm even more sorry my deck crumbled shortly after, making us go through the motions of grabbing Gardens, Duchies and Estates until finally, at turn 30, you bought the last Province to put us both out of our misery.

I could have probably played more humane by buying some hard needed cash or other cards when I grabbed an (almost due to Gardens) unassailable lead.  I switched to auto pilot instead and just bought greens.  ;)

I let the other players know what I was up to too, right from the start. That they didn't try the same thing, meant I felt pretty confident about steamrolling them.

I probably should've started trashing a lot earlier, but I wanted to see if I could finish the game with all my Coppers and Estates remaining in my deck and no additional treasure. I couldn't get to that point though :( I really wanted to Workshop a Province too.

For those interested, I have the chat room log attached.

It was after midnight, and I wanted "just one more game".  I opened Silver/Moneylender, got a Turn 3 King's Court, and the best target I saw?  The lowly but flexible Pawn.

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120110-224006-9086c343.html

I then proceeded to buy 8 over my next 5 turns, while Moneylender cleared out my Coppers.  Apart from the inexplicable Coppersmith purchase at Turn 11 (yeah it helped my Horn of Plenty get to $7, but Herbalist is clearly better in a copper-free deck), I think it was a good strategy, and I probably was in a very good position.

BUT... it meant I was playing a ton of pawns every turn (14 on my last turn!).

And with my Horn able to nab more KC's, it was only going to get worse.

Now, I try very hard to avoid analysis paralysis (AP) on Pawns -- I think it's rude and saps fun from the game.  My strategy is usually clear enough in my mind that I know exactly what I want from my Pawns.  Even so... playing on my laptop with no mouse, it took a fair bit of time to click on everything I wanted to do.

My opponent resigned after my 14-Pawn, KC + double-Province turn.  Despite my dominant position, I was thinking of resigning myself, just because moving the trackpoint was so tedious!

That reminds me of Annotated Game #5 (http://dominionstrategy.com/2011/03/15/annotated-game-5/), where DG crushes me with KC + Quarry + Pawn.  It's a pretty great strategy, I think, but totally not in my playstyle, and definitely has a ridiculously high time/turn ratio.

A different kind of sorry.

I'm sorry, jonts26, that I declined the auto-match proposals for us to play a game.
It's just, sometimes I pull up Iso to play a quick game without having to think that much, just to relax; it's nothing personal.

And I know that after I play a game with you or any other top 10 player, my brain will be hurting all over and I won't be able to sleep for a few hours.
This wouldn't be a problem if it wouldn't cause my wife to also not be able to sleep.  :P

It's not a habit or a strategic thing that I won't play against any higher level, but sometimes I'm just not looking for that kind of game.

Dear my opponent,
I'm sorry you are not an experienced player... but the pattern native village / bridge is simple enough to be predicted...
And yes, I was really really a bad guy, letting you come closer to empty 3 piles, but having the experience of "... picking up 22 cards from the Native Village mat."

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201201/18/game-20120118-042956-aa93d5f8.html

yes, 8 bridges played in the same hand (7 would have been enough) and yes, 8 provinces taken for 0.

not a good choiche for you, my dear opponent, to go for gardens too early :)

Dear my opponent,

I am not sorry, but actually very jealous of your sportsmanship.
You typed "!resign" after turn 7, but your Chrome plugin was not running and even if it had, I don't know if that command is actually supported.  ???
I explained how to resign with the regular buttons, but you stuck with it and completed the game anyway.

And it wasn't even that big of a wash, only 55 - 31.

Dear Wandering Winder,

Sorry about our game, as I said before the match started, I'm a big fan of your articles, and the match happened to be Duke/Horse Traders, which happens to be one of the first articles that I'd read and tried to simulate. As the writer of the article you of course see it, and the only reason why I one was your awful shuffle luck. Thanks for accepting my match, and I did enjoy playing you, though I cringed when looking at the log showing your hands.

A fan,
Ferrouswheel

I am also sorry, that I didn't end the game on 3-piling with Great Halls, but I sadisticly bought some Hoards and was preparing for a mega turn later. I was really enjoying that end, sorry...

We both started down the obvious copper-enabler synergy route, only to realise we were lacking things like good draw.

Lots of apology-worthy games for me recently.

Dear NinjaBus, I'm sorry for playing literally pure big money and somehow buying my 4th province on my turn 11. That just should not happen (it's a 0.11% chance on a 4/3 split, according to my simulations). I thought my luck was bad when I didn't have $5 to spend on either turns 3 or 4, when I was planning to buy Trading Post to follow my Silver/Silver opening. Instead it ended up as among the luckiest games I've ever played. Log: http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120209-163506-7ee9bdea.html (http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120209-163506-7ee9bdea.html)

Dear zaubererer, I'm sorry for buying Black Market and pulling out (among others!) King's Court, Saboteur, Torturer, Remake, Salvager, and even a Fairgrounds, when the only attack in the original board was Rabble and the only trasher on the original board was Forge. Also, Village was in the kingdom (and I pulled several Village variants from the Black Market). With my deck reduced to an engine that played multiple Rabbles per turn and King's Courted whichever of Saboteur or Torturer I wanted to abuse that turn, I'm sure play in the late game was horrible, and you had no chance to build a similar engine yourself. The worst is that the points were quite close for a long time so you probably felt you needed to stay in.

To get us back on topic, and to add to the "Dear WW, I'm sorry" notes:

Dear WanderingWinder,

I'm sorry that you had to play from 2nd position (because you killed me) on a board featuring Hunting Party, Governors, and Militia.  Piledriving colonies on you should be a special achievement on councilroom stats pages.  I lost the log, but I'm pretty sure that the "Bully" achievement is pretty close.

To follow it, I'm extra sorry I tournament [redacted] you in the follow-on match, in which I didn't really do anything different from you, but had banes when I needed them, and had provinces when you didn't want me to: http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201202/14/game-20120214-091016-535869b7.html

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201202/18/game-20120218-091400-a7c50ec9.html

The last turn is slightly disgusting: his economy is pretty much gone, he's trailing by 7 points and is first player, so he needs 8 points to win, he has only one Worker's Village, one Oasis and one Menagerie, yet plays them all in that final turn drawing 3 from Menagerie (of course), plays the Monument and has enough money to buy an Estate AND a Province for the win.
Title: Re: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry
Post by: philosophyguy on February 18, 2012, 12:58:47 pm
Geronimoo, can you say a little bit about why you went for Oasis in that game? I understand how Oasis is useful in games where you are liable to have lots of dead cards (curses and green) or when you want to rush Duchies and so $5 is plenty, but I don't see what you were trying to do with them in a Province race. To be clear, since writing online strips away a lot of tone, this is an honest question rather than snark; I'm genuinely curious how you hoped to play them out.
Title: Re: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry

Post by: ftl on February 19, 2012, 09:03:05 pm
Less to apologize for there than you think. Opening Potion when Possession is the ONLY potion card around is really slow - that potion is a dead card for a few shuffles. He drew 2p on his first shuffle (a useless hand) and then on his second shuffle. Whereas you did the right thing and bought a potion only later, when you were ready to use it to actually buy Possessions. So while the first-possession-right-after-tactician was pretty lucky, overall the fact that you got the Possession first and used it first was entirely unsurprising and deserved.

Gotta love those trash for benefit cards. Had trashed a single Province with Salvager or Apprentice before, Remodeled, Expanded or Forged a single Province into another and of course Ambassadored the occasional Province away, but nothing like this. :)

I was playing a chapelled Big Money deck and bought the first three provinces before opponent had any, so I chappelled them away so I had only gold and chapel in my deck reasoning that if I had got the first 3 that quickly, I should win the race to the next three out of 5 easily.

Didnt quite work out like that....

Indeed.  I noticed my deck was just about to the point where I would not be guaranteed 4 Fool's Golds when I played Envoy and I was already up 4-0 on Colonies, so I figured why not.  Ultimately, it is unlikely it would have played out any differently if I had left it.

Post by: The 9th Doctor on February 22, 2012, 05:49:04 pm
Dear avenger,

Monument/Chapel is the #25 best opening, which usually would be pretty nice for you.  Unfortunately, I started 5/2 and was able to open Mountebank/Chapel, which is the #1 opening.

Consider that there were also Cities and Bridges on the board and the result was not pretty.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201202/22/game-20120222-144335-6a0f5e98.html

While it was pretty much inevitable given the starting hands, I would have to think that opening Swindler/Chapel or even Swindler/Swindler is the right move here as the 4/3 player.  Seems like the only chance is to hit one of the opening buys of your opponents before they have a chance to play them.

It's nothing really new, so I decided to put it here instead of to game reports.

KC / bridge is well known to be able to get 8 provinces in one turn if you have
2 KC, 3 bridge
in hand.

I wanted to play exactly this to get all provinces at once in a colony game, but look what it resulted in (t15) ;) :

Yes, it was. Apology accepted. ;)

EDIT: By the way, I hate Smugglers. But the true culprit here was Menagerie, which you triggered almost every time you played it despite minimal trashing, no hand-management cards (warehouse, etc.), and a strategy that relied on using a few key cards in multiples (i.e., minimal variety).

Dear egg,
      I am sorry that I was lucky enough to get both Goons and Menagerie from the black market deck. Menagerie probably would've been the closest to a counter to Goons, and considering that I got both, it left you in a lost position the second I got Goons. Even though I did one bad decision breaking my chain from going off, I still was able to end it with a bigger chain.

I hope you can forgive me,

Dear Bazinga!,

This is one of those games where a typical player wouldn't even notice how absurdly unlucky you were. Both of your opening buys came on turn 5, which happens with 1% probability.  The powerful cards were $5, and you repeatedly hit $4. Without attacks or "swingy" cards, the game was over by turn 6.

I'm sure it wasn't fun for you. http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201203/11/game-20120311-143712-0f0692f8.html (http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201203/11/game-20120311-143712-0f0692f8.html)


I would've said "Mind if we switch computers? You play as me I'll play as you ;) " if I had to face that.

Sounds like that calls for a new card:
REPOSSESSION: If you have two Goons, send them to repossess opponent's computer. Then finish whipping own your sorry butt playing as him.

Dear Kreacher:

I'm sorry your tribute flipped two tunnels on your first play, allowing me to amass 7(!) golds on my 7th turn. I'm also sorry I drew the optimal 8$ 4 times, drew gold-remodel-copper (1$ over) once, and warehoused a sixth province in an obscene 13 turns. I've never seen warehouse-tunnel go so optimally before.

Dear Snuggles, I am sorry. http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201203/25/game-20120325-092601-5e8e8a72.html

We both went for Young Witch (Bane Cellar), with some help from Fishing Villages. I felt pretty good about myself, cycling my deck as much as I could after every Cellar buy in the first few rounds to improve my odds of protection. But then it just got weird. Snuggles had 5 curses in no-time, and somehow I got my Cellars in place every time. I believe I handed Snuggles the final Curse on turn 13; I got zero. No skill involved. He was a perfect sport and sat it out to the end, announcing he reached his personal goal: going positive :)

Dear yuuna, you got the dream swindler hit in this game, trashing my potion in a crazy kingdom before I could play it and replacing it with a Treasure Map at a point when I had committed to Witch and Swindler. Instead of doing the sensible thing and taking a replacement potion, I thought "ahh, what the hell" and then...

yuuna's turn 5
   yuuna plays a Swindler.
   ... getting +$2.
   ... perdhapley turns up a Potion and trashes it.
   ... replacing perdhapley's Potion with a Treasure Map.
   yuuna plays a Silver and 2 Coppers.
   yuuna buys a Witch.
   (yuuna draws: an Estate, a Potion, a Transmute, a Curse, and a Copper.)

perdhapley's turn 6
perdhapley plays a Swindler.
... getting +$2.
... yuuna turns up an Estate and trashes it.
... replacing yuuna's Estate with an Estate.
perdhapley plays 3 Coppers.
perdhapley buys a Treasure Map.
(perdhapley reshuffles.)
(perdhapley draws: an Estate, a Witch, 2 Coppers, and a Silver.)
   
perdhapley's turn 7
perdhapley plays a Witch.
... drawing 2 cards.
... yuuna gains a Curse.
perdhapley plays a Silver and 3 Coppers.
perdhapley buys a Witch.
(perdhapley draws: a Swindler, 2 Treasure Maps, an Estate, and a Copper.)
 
perdhapley's turn 8
perdhapley plays a Treasure Map.
... trashing the Treasure Map.
... trashing a Treasure Map from hand.
... gaining 4 Golds on the deck.
(perdhapley draws: 4 Golds and a Copper.)

...This was followed by me trashing your Witch (via Swindler) on turn 11 and your own Swindler on turn 14 (before you even had the chance to hit something else of mine) while avoiding collision with my four terminal actions on all but two turns, leading to a 7/3 curse split. I have never seen a strategy so driven by dumb luck, and I'm truly sorry you had to be on the receiving end.

Dear pk_Brooklyn,

I'm sorry that when my late game Possession finally turned up (at the bottom of my draw deck) it was after you had spent 3 turns buying Silvers and saving your Treasuries up. And that your hand finally totalled $8 on the turn that I Possessed you, leading me to buy that Province and send your Treasuries back to the discard. Thanks for being a good sport; I would have been pissed.

I'm sorry for possibly playing this sub-optimally, and yet still cruising to a victory you just couldn't compete with by opening Mint/FG:

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201204/14/game-20120414-110336-e587ded7.html

That's a ridiculously strong opening, and while I thought that gaining a few Council/Throne Rooms would make it that much more devastating (I should've grabbed a Steward with my first 5, to be honest), I forgot that Fool's Gold best friend is slim thin decks.

You did well to allow me only 6 Fool's Gold, but there still wasn't much contest, and it wasn't your fault.

I'm sorry.

I got King's Court -> Masqueraded a couple weeks ago in a deck where it enabled him to just trash all my cards. Is that the "pin"?

I also won a pretty nasty Highway/King's Court -> Feast game today that was just completely inappropriate (one opponent said "oh hell no, this is just ridiculous"; the other one said "what just happened???"). I'm sorry!
Title: Re: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry
Post by: ftl on April 16, 2012, 02:04:04 am
Yep, that's the pin.

(Well, typically the pin is something like King's Court+Militia+Masquerade, so that you're stuck at zero cards in hand even before your whole deck is dead)
Title: Re: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry
Post by: blueblimp on April 16, 2012, 05:21:55 pm
It's only a pin if it's actually trashing you down to 0 cards in hand, every turn. Otherwise, it's more like a forced Chapel, which can still be annoying but isn't at all a guaranteed loss.

(In such a situation, pick up a Masquerade and play it, which will usually break their combo. Some boards may offer other ways of breaking the combo.)

Assuming there was other support, the correct move would be to (well, just don't play the HoP, but assuming you already screwed that up) gain a Copper, wouldn't it?

Dear RomaNorgy, sorry for only getting to $7 on the last turn when you needed that Province. Looked like a nice comeback after my lucky Mint hand:

I'm happy personally since it ended the most insane losing streak I've ever had, one which I'd previously have bet good money I would never experience:

(http://img856.imageshack.us/img856/5540/resultsb.jpg)

On that note, thanks to Fabian for helping me to spot a way to victory in the game I played against him (the 8th of his consecutive losses, I believe). 

I was pretty sure I could only draw and commented about it and he expressed doubt, thinking I could beat him by 1 point.  I then looked a little harder and realized I could Mine my Gold into a Harem, then Salvage a Platinum and buy the final Colony.

It takes a very good sport to be in the middle of that kind of bad run and still be generous and friendly.
Title: Re: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry
Post by: Fabian on April 29, 2012, 08:05:28 pm
Yeah it looked to me like you would either lose by 1 or win by 1 (the most straightforward way to win would be to Mine a Harem and buy the last Colony). Getting 10 points or 12 points seemed "easy" on that turn, getting 11 ($13 and 2 buys) seemed not as straightfoward (2 Mine and 1 Salvager in his deck, so getting extra points from Harem was more on my mind at the time). Anyway yeah if I keep my mouth shut for 2 seconds in that game, maybe I get to stop at 7 losses :D

Dear Bengoshi, I am truly sorry for what happened in our game (http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201205/14/game-20120514-115018-3f8e368f.html).

I really had no idea how to play this board... I was kinda operating in zombie cruise control mode, and so I wasn't making some well-thought-out brilliant move when my 2/5 allowed me to open Native Village and Library.  Honestly, with all seriousness, I don't even know if that really works on this board (thoughts from the peanut gallery?).

I mindlessly played my NV with no regard for my deck composition or what was coming next or anything.  I didn't even buy more of them, just the one.  I lucked into putting coppers and estates on the mat, and having enough on my Library turns to buy golds.

What makes my apology even more poignant is what happened between us in the chat:

14:46 paddyodoors: hi gl hf
14:49 Bengoshi: nicely played
14:49 Bengoshi: but f*** you
14:49 paddyodoors: thanks... just got lucky though
14:49 paddyodoors: however, I don't think you're doing yourself any favors with the insult, as it doesn't hurt me
14:50 paddyodoors: sorry to hear that you feel that way about a game :-/
14:50 Bengoshi has returned to the lobby.

Since it was my turn when I was typing those last lines, it is quite possible that you disconnected before you had a chance to read them, and I only saw your return to the lobby after I finished my turn.  I am sorry that my lucky play was enough to set off your equilibrium to the point of insults.  :(  If you read this, maybe we can try again soon and patch things up?  No joke, serious offer.

It's a KC-KC-KC-Lab-Scheme-Scheme-Scheme-Saboteur-Saboteur lock. Then I hope my Lab and Schemes draw enough treasure to buy a Province.
Funny thing is that my opponent actually had Followers which I couldn't destroy and it could have broke the lock, but he never managed to draw it as he kept downgrading to crap (10 Estates and 20 Coppers). His reaction when I first topdecked everything was a desperate "really?", I felt genuinely sorry.  :'(

I wonder if he could have salvaged things by taking Crossroads instead of (some of) those Estates, and maybe taking "nothing" instead of some of those Coppers.  The idea being a desperate attempt to get to Followers to break the lock.

On a board comprised of villages, universities and torturers it's basically a game of roulette with our old friend shuffler.
I am sorry to tell you, Niuz, shuffler owed me one that game.

Still, I must say some decisions are better than others. (Like say, discarding curses instead of accumulating them until the pile runs out)

Crushed in 14 turns into a negative score:
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201205/23/game-20120523-064553-40386b4a.html

Agreed, it was a randomfest. Which called for non-linear thinking. Throne room/Feast was the only way to get something vaguely resembling buying power.

Dear sonnyset, I am sorry that A) The first time you played Torturer, I KC-Ambassadored the curse back to you. B) That happened twice. C) The third time you played Torturer, even though I forgot that there were no more curses and I discarded, It was noneffective. http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120529-081539-3f730682.html (http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120529-081539-3f730682.html) Oh, and, the reason why there was a mysterious Pawn/Island rush was because I wanted to end the game; I had to go somewhere.

Heh.

Frankly I think you were both crazy to go for cursing attacks in an Ambassador game, and for potions in a King's Court game. Torturer was an especially silly choice though, as its not even a compulsory curse.

As a rule of thumb I'd say that the priority in a King's Court game is getting to $7 as soon as possible. A pure game of ambassador, king's court and pawns could easily have been enough, I think.

Dear F'ing New Guy

I'm sorry you vetoed Tournament and then watched me pull it out of the Black Market along with Wharf, Rabble, Bishop, Apprentice, Salvager and Hamlet in a game that already had King's Court available. Needless to say you had little chance despite finding some decent cards in the Black Market yourself (Margrave, Remake, Worker's Village among them).

Sorry to DomDeLouise. I had a game against him where I pulled a tournament from the Black Market  on turn 4, then got a province on turn 6, and connected my one tournament with my one province on turn 8, all with no enablers besides a single oasis and money. I really felt bad about that.

I'm so sorry that you didn't hit $6 until turn 19, and only hit it once more during the game. That was some really rotten luck. You blamed buying two quarries but even with that, you had some *terrible* luck. Thanks for being a fun opponent and a great sportsman!

Dear mazer, sorry for this game , where I forced you to possess me with swindling your mining village into a potion turn 6 (these were the only $4s), and when you bought an upgrade turn 6 I immediately changed it into a venture.
And because of other swindlers, most of them were kingcourted, and venture, you couldn't possess me... oh, yes, you did it after your turn 19 and you got a colony, but one turn later you would have got a kc+swindler hand to fix your deck i've so destroyed...

Still thanks for having played this game, it's my first time in about 500 games all platinums were gone.

It reminds me of another game few days ago, in which I had much kc+jesters, but I didn't keep the log... sorry for the player, anyway ; I also remembered I had kc+cellar in hand once as only action cards and I played cellar only, without even discarding kc, and still won with an huge lead.

Swindler-related :
Dear Final Fantasy, first you've a nice name, then, as we played 4 games together and we both won and lose 2, I won the 3rd one thanks to my swindlers who always used spells like Flare, Meteor, Death...
Turn 3 : quarry (your $4, of course) -> coppersmith
Turn 6 : Worker's village -> coppersmith
Turn 9 : Smugglers -> chancellor (and I bought a 2nd swind)
Turn 16 : I dealt you the only curse in this game like this !
http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120704-015832-86e3d091.html

King's court related :
Dear daaaaavid, I'm sorry first for buying an early KC (turn 5 !!!) and gambling that they would collide with one of my two mountebanks... they did turn 11, and you had no curses !
And I'm sorry for this 9-3 platinum split, as on your turn 22 you margraved me, which allowed my KC, mint and plat to meet each other... these were the 3 cards I kept in hand !
So... thanks for this game !

As for resigning, I believe if you just click: exit, the server should handle it gracefully and not cause problems for your opponent. Just don't close your browser.

Could someone correct me if I'm wrong?

If I'm right, then there is no need to wait for someone's mega turn to resign, and no need to ask them to skip it, if you are truncating the game anyways (which I don't personally mind).

Dear Ravnica,

I'm sorry.  I really should have ended this game sooner, but when you see an opportunity to get the Silk Roads/Gardens/Estates triple piledriver, you really just have to do it.  I'm sure if I'd timed things right I could have gotten four piledrivers including workshops or great halls, but even I am not that cruel.  Not that I even played this well -- somehow I didn't see Workshop there until after the first turn.

Oh, and I piledrived provinces too...

Why replace Chapel with Herbalist?  At that point, he'd already trashed most of his starting cards, so Chapel was approaching uselessness anyway.  Estate would be even more worthless, except for SR on the board.  But he trashed his starting Estates anyway, so SR was less likely his plan.
Title: Re: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry
Post by: mgallop on July 30, 2012, 11:15:05 am
Possibly a mistake at that point, but my goal is to junk up his deck with as many terminal actions as possible, and so my thoughts are that allowing him to remove woodcutters/coppers/curses seems less useful than just continuing to clog the deck. And herbalist as the only action seems pretty miserable. I could be wrong tho, estate would also hurt.

Thanks for seeing the game through, though.

You're right.  I'm still relatively new to Dominion.  After my first few Torturers I realized that the power of Torturer is in playing multiples, and there was no action chaining on that board, making Witch the better card.

Sorry to Fnovd (I play as SpaceSquirrel)

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201208/30/game-20120830-193700-e7644f12.html
Black Market, Colony, Develop, Duchess, King's Court, Mine, Pawn, Philosopher's Stone, Platinum, Possession, Potion, Scheme♦, Spy, and Tunnel

KC+Scheme+Possession is bad enough.  To make matters worse, he pulled an Ambassador out of the Black Market deck.  Was pretty clever to topdeck like this when he expected my possession (which did come):

Fnovd's turn 18
[...]
Fnovd puts a Sea Hag, a Mine, a Black Market, a Black Market, and a Tournament back on the deck (first on top).

Unfortunately for him, my Possession did connect with a KC.

The ultimate in "sorry" was the next to last Possessed turn (the possession had yet to be played).  He may have already resigned before this happened:

... ... ... and plays the King's Court a third time.
... ... ... ... and plays an Ambassador.
... ... ... ... ... Fnovd reveals a Possession.
... ... ... ... ... returning it to the supply.
... ... ... ... ... SpaceSquirrel gains a Possession.
... ... ... ... and plays the Ambassador again.
... ... ... ... ... Fnovd reveals a King's Court.
... ... ... ... ... returning it to the supply.

Dear ijskol,

We both saw Quarry/GM/KC and ignored Scrying Pool and Vineyard fairly reasonably... sorry I got my deck streamlined with a few Apprentices, then suddenly ended the game on piles with 10 buys (5 of which were KC), buying an Estate to win 1-0 in what you probably expected to be an engine-based Province rush.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201208/31/game-20120831-232604-bd65bbfe.html

And to avoid double-posting...

Dear Qu,

We both saw KC and picked up a Quarry to get them more easily, and Upgrade to thin decks early. But I have no idea why you ignored Tournament. Sorry I grabbed a bunch of them and started building a massive engine that would eventually start Upgrading KC->Province, while getting the prizes and using a spare buy from Princess for Vineyards... I don't blame you for not seeing it through to the end...

Nobody else is posting to this any more? :(

Dear Riley,

I... um. I truly am sorry. This was just brutal. I got unlucky to open 5/2 on a board where we'd vetoed both the $5s and there were no $2s... I opened Ambassador/nothing, used Scrying Pool to win the Ambassador war, and then gradually built up an engine that could reliably double-Curse (while they lasted), multiple-PS, and Goons you every turn. Although I guess giving you Copper and then trashing mostly Copper with PS cancelled out...

I didn't even end it as quickly as I ought to have been able to.... should have just picked up another Potion or two and run out the SP and villages :/

Dear Astaro,
I'm sorry you ignored Saboteur like a decent reasonable person after beating me to King's Court, and I'm sorry that there were sufficient alternate victory cards that I could just keep ignoring them for so long to make sure I kept ripping apart your deck... And I'm sorry the game ended with 3 of your Provinces and 4 of your KC's in the trash...

Dear I pooped in my boots,

I am sorry that you bought shanty town instead of masquerade. They draw the same amount of cards that first shuffle, but you have nothing to do with the actions, and masquerade improves your future hands? I'm not sure why you didn't buy it, but that is the reason my quarries racked up into some very fast grand markets. I shouldn't have even bought that silver i think. Anyways thanks for the game.

Bazaar(multiples), Laboratory, (multiples) Chapel (just one), Goons (four), Bishop (two).  I just kept buying Bazaars and Laboratories so long as I could draw my deck and play all four Goons and both Bishops and trashed out Laboratories with the Bishops until I had an optimal number and then bought provinces and trashed them.  I have no idea what they were doing, but I feel a little less bad for them because they didn't buy any of the above cards and just let me do it.  The final score was 100+ - <10.

So I'm sorry, but also curious what their plan was.

I'm sorry I got literally perfect shuffle luck (http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201210/20/game-20121020-161421-c01ba4bc.html) for a Chapel/Bishop golden deck.

Open Chapel/Silver.

Turn 3: Chapel, Copper, Estate, Estate, Estate => trash Copper and 3 Estates.
Turn 4: Silver, Copper, Copper, Copper, Copper => buy Gold.
Turn 5: Gold, Silver, Copper, Copper, Copper => buy Bishop (and trash Copper to opponent's Bishop).
Turn 6: Chapel, Copper, Copper, Copper, Copper => trash 4 Coppers.
Turn 7: Bishop, Chapel, Gold, Silver, Copper => trash Chapel, buy Gold.
Turn 8: Bishop, Gold, Gold, Silver, Copper => trash Copper, buy Province => Golden deck.

Seriously, how often do you draw your Chapel with a Copper and three Estates on turn 3, and again with 4 Coppers on turn 6?

I forgot the ancient maxim: "Don't ever underestimate Highway/Wharf, even in a Colony/Mountebank/Bishop game."  My grandfather taught that to me when I was little, but for some reason it slipped my mind until a few moments ago when you amazed me.

I thought for sure I had the game locked up, and then your brilliant comeback reopened my eyes.  Alas, you did not deserve to fall short by just one point after that amazing use of Highway/Wharf/Farmland, 87pts. to 86.  Sadly, it was a win that went to the lesser man.

Dear joebiz,

Sorry that I had to make a heavy Goons game so painful. If I'd been thinking more clearly, I probably could have ended it faster by piling Estates - but progressively building the engine was just too attractive. I actually misclicked once and failed to play the Outpost; although actually I didn't get it in hand as often as I thought I would.

But yeah, next time, don't underestimate Alchemist in a Goons game, okay?

I'm sorry I said "gg" to you prematurely, and that I pulled off a baffling comeback a few turns after you had a guaranteed win. You got to open Vault/FG and I didn't, so I was behind the whole game. I was so desperate towards the end I violated PPR, not knowing your next hand was Vault-Gold-X-X-X. You inexplicably discarded to my Vault and didn't have enough money for a Province. We then traded Duchies and Estates until I luckily got a hand of Gold-FG-FG to eek out the win.

The first post of the thread says "Okay, this is a thread to post games where you did something that made you actually feel sorry for your opponent. Post the game, explain why you are sorry, and let discussion ensue." In the game you quoted, I actually did feel (at least a little) sorry for my opponent for winning when I shouldn't have won. I see this thread as a broad "sorry that..." ;)

I'm also sorry my King's Court found my Ambassador on turn 8 and my Mountebank on turn 10. I was kinda surprised you even hung around that long.

Dear --Underdog--,

I'm sorry that I failed to buy a third silver.  That drew the game out way, way longer than it should've gone. I mean, you clearly didn't respond to Ambassador correctly (Scrying pool was a questionable choice), but I spent some 20 (!) turns doing nothing but ambassador-ing (playing like 5 hamlets every turn) the ever loving crap out of you before getting a gold.  And it didn't help that I proceeded to go for colonies from there.  I'd have resigned well before turn 32.  That was pain.

Dear ihstax,

I'm sorry I said "gg" to you prematurely, and that I pulled off a baffling comeback...

On behalf of ihstax, I accept your apology.  ;)

This is my biggest iso pet peeve. If you are really giving up, resign! Otherwise, keep your cool, and play it out.

I did this once in a Goons game...said I was resigning and then drew an incredible hand and just barely won. As long as you tell them never mind you aren't resigning its okay, right?

I do this all the time. Didn't realize it was that annoying.

For example:

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120811-103220-1194ba07.html

A board with both Mint and Fool's Gold. I said "gg" as soon as I saw my opponent's 5-2 start.

Somehow, my Salvager/Fool's Gold opening proved to be sufficient.  :)

My meanest game ever had feast, wharf, and kings court on it.  I was cruising to a pretty easy win with my engine set up long before his. 

Then he goes and buys a saboteur on me. I was like, "Oh hell no, I was going to be nice and just finish you off, now it's time for the pain."

the next turn I had a spare feast laying around, so I kings courted it into 3 sabs and played them.  The next 3 turns (until he resigned) I sab'd him 9 times a turn reducing his deck to mostly silver copper and estates.

Stealth Tomato --

I'm sorry that in our game last night where I wasn't even all the way focused on the game (watching Breaking Bad with commentary), I won the Curse split 8-2...after you opened with the Bane (Pearl Diver) and ended up with more of them than me. That was a really ugly game that I really only won thanks to shuffling.

Playing Cat Daddy. Opened 2/5, went Fool's Gold (only 2 option)/Hunting party and went nuts from there. King's Court really makes Hunting Party just insane. This was a typical turn for my six of my last 8 or so. Game ended on Turn 18 when I trashed a KC /w Salvager and bought a colony with the +7 and a platinum in hand.

I was thinking about this as I watched the video yesterday.  You were going on about how fun engines are, and I just kept empathizing with your opponent.  I watched it just after your "three player hell" video, so maybe I was more sensitive to long turns.

I saw KC-Masq-Monument on the board and saw a pin opportunity. I trashed down 2 KCs (later became 3 because of his masq play), 2 monuments, and a masq. He was never really able to get anything going but he stuck it out until all of his cards were gone.

Dear SirBobbyTee,

You must have never played with Ambassador before.  You must have though I was being nice giving you estates and coppers, but you should have realized when I was giving you two coppers each turn that you should have picked an Ambassador up to return this favor.  Finishing the game with 22 points and 23 coopers must not have felt good.

Sincerely,

Unlinked

P.S. I had no more time to keep playing, and only had $6 on my final turn and needed the game to end, that is the only reason I gave you Province with my Ambassador.

I considered it, I was thinking about the purple piledriver accomplishment once i got the engine going. A early few turns i had enough buys but not enough points to do it in one turn. As i got the provinces they blocked me from drawing my deck and getting enough buys.

I played a game yesterday with goons  tactitian and villages and chapel in the kingdom.
I must say i feel very sorry for my opponent who didnt go for a double tactitian deck.
I played the game so horribly, buying explorers and stuff at start and when i converted into double tactitian 4x Goons
i even played worse: trashing my second tactitian twice with chapel by accident, playing all cards so my second tactitian didnt trigger
and buying more coppers with the goons than i could chapel away next turn.
He had a huge lead and could have won if he would have spent his 11+ $ hands on provinces instead of colonies. I already gratulated him for the win and asked if we yould play another game on the same board so i could really play the deck i failed so hard on this game.
In the end i still won by 3 points. Didn't make me feel good after all.

Dear spice merchant, I'm sorry you fell just short of ending the game in time, and that you had never heard of this combo before. It must have been deflating to have your 80 point lead annihilated out of nowhere.

by some freak of luck I got this kingdom in a pro game:

King's Court, Masquerade, Outpost, Grand Market, Woodcutter, Highway, Mining Village, Smithy, Vault, Harem.

Log: http://dom.retrobox.eu/?/20130628/log.50f5fe6be4b03946044c8a82.1372448857841.txt

Well, I looked at that and decided that I mean, I just can't pass up this opportunity...

And it almost didn't work. I played fairly badly I think. He got 18 full turns before I finally got the pin to work. He managed to get 7 colonies, a province and two duchies. If he had gone for provinces he would have won. From turn 19 on he had 0 card hands, from playing KC-masquerade with no cards in deck, discard, or hand, both during my regular turn and in my outpost turn. He stuck around for a few rounds though before quitting. He had never seen the combo before, and thought it was hilarious. and since my deck was full of cantrips, not just a 4 card deck of "KC, mining village, masquerade, outpost", my turns took a long time.

I'm sure most of you know the pain of getting a 4-3 start and watching your opponent open Mint/Fool's Gold.

It turns out that Butcher/Fool's Gold is also pretty painful. I'm sorry.

Just played a game with perfect t3/t4... that just opens up strategies otherwise unplayable.

Opening Jack/Wishing Well
t3: necropolis, jack (discard hovel, trash overgrown estate), wishing well (yes copper) use $6 to buy Nobles.
t4: necropolis, jack (discard copper), wishing well (yes copper), nobles for cards, use $8 to buy another Nobles, trash hovel.

It's kind of his fault for buying an extra potion, especially with Stonemason on the board, allowing you to gain two Universities at once. Maybe, that is why he went for the extra potion, but a mistake nonetheless.

That combo seems more like a nombo to me. You bought your 5th Duchy on turn 15, and at the time didn't have any Dukes. I'm pretty sure straight BM can do that well or better, then be in a better position to buy Dukes afterwards. (Although to be fair, there's almost nothing to help out BM+Duke here. Hamlet or Market to pick up extra coppers, maybe?)

This has the look of a great set of cards.  My opponent opens potion/masquerade.  I open herald/masquerade.  I think he probably should have won, but my herald hit my masquerade on turn 4, which drew my potion that i had bought turn 3 into my hand to buy a university before he could.  I couldn't have had better shuffle luck, and for that I am not sorry, but I do feel sorry for anyone who loses a game not based on skill, but on luck.

Thief+BM is better than straight BM, and your opponent's play was pretty questionable (a few times buying Masterpiece with $3...), so not that crazy. I wonder though if Thief+FG would do better, or how Trading Post -> Masterpiece+BM would fare.

Is there a black cat on the Remodel card?  :)

Bad luck for him that you got the 5/2 start, but he didn't help himself by opening Swindler/Remodel. Mountebank is such an important card here; he needs to maximize his chances of getting one on the second pass through the deck. I think he should've opened Swindler/Silver.

Dear rajeevbat:  With a junker out, you really should have gone Chapel here.  However, I'm still sorry that I was able to play KC-Mint on Platinum three times during the game.  That was probably overkill, and I guess the last one was pretty gratuitous.  It was also dumb luck to get KC-Mint to line up three times.

10 Platinum is never overkill. I don't understand what you mean.

In this game, my opponent got possibly the most brutal Swindler luck I have ever seen.
http://gokologs.drunkensailor.org/static/logprettifier.html?20140420/log.5066a4d70cf20e086dc89e71.1398006772445.txt

It starts bad: he gets 5/2 (opens Apprentice/Lighthouse, which imo is a bit questionable with shelters) and I get 4/3 (open Swindler/Swindler, which in hindsight is probably a bit overaggressive given that Lighthouse is present).

It gets worse: his Apprentice misses the shuffle.

It gets awful: On T4, my Swindler play hits his Apprentice, turning it into a Duchy. (At this point, he's incredibly far behind.)

Game over: On T6, he buys a replacement Apprentice, and on the next turn (my T7), my Swindler hits it and turns it into a Duchy.

Keep in mind that through all of this, not only are my Swindlers hitting the best possible target, but they're also dodging his Lighthouses.

The worst of it was that it wasn't clear at all where it would go or who would win, so resigning wasn't really an option. It got so silly there should be a couple of memes in there, but I haven't figured them out yet.

yed   plays Ambassador
yed   reveals Copper
yed   returns Copper to the Supply
yed   returns Copper to the Supply

This was turn 25. The crazy part? It was me, possessing yed, robbing him of his coppers.

After lunch, we played again and I set up an amazing engine, got Tournament (and all five prizes) from the Black Market, and crushed him with all eight provinces.  He said he would never play with me again.

Did isotropic not allow you to resign on your opponent's turn? I know if my opponent told me "I plan to resign" I'd still play my five-minute turn (if that's what it takes to play the turn optimally). If you want the game to be over, just resign.

Played a match of two games at a boardgaming tournament(vs 2 opponents).
First game: Torturer engine, but I trashed all of my money, so it was me buying Silver/engine parts while each of them takes 2 Curses a turn or discards their whole hand. I started numbering the Torturer plays to make sure they didn't miss one. Got to like 5 in a turn by the end.
Second game: I pulled out Goons/Watchtower as ammo after a Wharf/Bazaar engine, but I just couldn't empty those 3 piles. First turn I showed it to them, I picked up 10 points(one guy bought a Colony after and said "10 points, the old fashioned way"), then 24, then 50... I ended up with 176 points. People started looking over from the other tables when I started using Coin tokens as 50 VP chips.
Both opponents left the table before I could get their first names for the scoresheet.

He can still win easy.  IW/Gardens is present which is a large source of points.  The larger deck size will significantly mitigate the damage of losing the FG split 6/4.  Can also IW/Feast to turn into Duchies.  You were certainly in a better position but your opponent clearly hasn't played enough Dominion to learn that that you could still draw 5 FG in a single hand that also misses the reshuffle.  Luck happens in Dominion.  Early luck is usually snowballs a game but by no means is it game over.  I could't count the number of games I've won after not resigning due to an opponents early luck.

I am not that sure about that odds, my guess is more 60%-40% but I would need simulate that from given hand to get exact numbers. He  could get province on turn 5 which is nice. Likely followup is getting embassies which likely get province regardless of having 4 or 6 fools gold, what matters more is if playing them causes reshuffle or not. I would gain embassy+fg on turn 4 and would get tempo for lossing split 4-6. At turn 5 its hard to tell if province or getting embassy is better but one could try to get lucky 5 in turn 6/7.

I'm not sorry I had 7-8 Fool's Golds within 4-6 turns after opening.
I am sorry that you raggequit as that rash action of yours denied me the ability to have some fun with 7-8 fool's golds floating around in my deck, as I'm sure it would've clogged at some point, as the board was not conducive to having large deck drawing engines.

Dear My Opponent: sorry for making you go through such a frustrating game.

But in fact, if you had let me buy that Warehouse, the game would've been a tie. I'm guessing you were banging your head against the keyboard after that.

Yesterday I had a game where I drew Copper, Copper, Estate, Prince and Copper. My opponent played a Vault turning one of my Coppers and my Estate into a Militia.

I'm sorry you spent so much time dicking around buying Pillage instead of Gold that you totally wasted a 7-3 Ruin split AND terrible Chapel luck by me.  I imagine you smashed in your computer after I ended the game with back-to-back mega turns that took the score from 0-30 (5 Provinces) to 31-30.  If your computer still works, next time buy Gold instead of Pillage.

Without checking the log, it sounds like your opponent played poorly, not that you had especially good luck (or that they had especially bad luck) for which you should be sorry.

Well I did have good luck setting up the megaturns, but yah mostly he played very poorly by buying Pillage instead of Gold 3 times.

I agree that he played poorly, but not buying Golds and buying Pillages is one of the things he did right. He didn't have turns like

Michael Sobin: turn 22
Michael Sobin   plays Cultist
Michael Sobin   draws Cultist, Province
Michael Sobin   plays Cultist
Michael Sobin   draws Cultist, Cultist
Michael Sobin   plays Cultist

Michael Sobin   plays Spoils
Michael Sobin   buys Market
Michael Sobin   gains Market
Michael Sobin   draws Fortress
Michael Sobin   shuffles deck
Michael Sobin   draws Market, Province, Cultist, Market

because he didn't have Golds in his deck and had bought Pillages instead, he had them because his engine was horrible. Note that you wouldn't have had that Madman if he had Pillaged you every turn, like he should have.

He was WAY ahead, and could have won any number of ways.  Buying Gold was the simplest path, but I suppose there are even faster ways. When he bought the first Pillage, I certainly expected him to buy one every turn thereafter, which would have been painful. He did not.  I suppose buying all the Markets was the biggest error.  Those just clogged up the deck when drawn in by Cultist.

I felt like I sold a small part of my soul doing this.  I also knew that I would get most everything as he had 4 cards in his draw deck at the end of his previous turn making it highly likely that all of his treasure was in his draw pile.  Still, I don't think I'e ever used Noble Brigand so effectively before by stealing almost all of my opponents treasure in a single turn.

Given the presence of King's Court, that was actually a lot more gentle than it could have been.  I've seen KC-KC-Possession3x.  Since then, KC+Possession has been a banned combination in my Kingdoms.  It's not just that it's powerful, but that it's powerful in a way that's really Not Fun for the victim.

Dear opponent:

You were kicking my ass.  Up 41-14 with a much better deck, 4 Colonies left.  You even knew to junk up your deck because I had two Possessions.  But for some reason you kept adding Advisors and I even swindled your Count into a Butcher in hopes that I could Possess you and use the Butcher.  But me drawing both of my possessions at the same time on a fat deck was totally lucky, I then I proceeded to take the last 4 Colonies on the two turns I possessed you.  It must have hurt, and I'm sorry.

I am sorry that this nightmare board had three different semi-stackable discard attacks that could be spammed every turn.

I am sorry that I got 8 bandit camps and you only got 2.

I am sorry that there was no plus buy, so piling provinces was more dangerous than three piling after you were pinned.

I am sorry that I didn't have the terminal space to continue adding torturers after emptying curse and bandit camp, so I had to buy a potion and empty alchemists instead.

Dear jaybeez,

I'm sorry you had the worst luck any opponent I have ever played on turns 3-5.

I'm sorry my ambassador came into hand on turn 3 while yours missed the shuffle. I'm sorry that on turn 4 I was able to buy a minion, while you, despite having the ambassador not in hands 3 or 4 did not hit 5. I'm sorry that on turn 5, your ambassador finally in hand, my minion instashuffled in, allowing me to discard your ambassador.

I'm sorry that you were forced to switch to bureaucrat as your only possible comeback means.

The shuffle luck gods had a good laugh and cried tears of injustice. I'm sorry.

Seriously, seriously, why would you choose not to resign here?  I would be gnawing through my cheeks in frustration.
So I have a tendency to hang on in goner situations, maybe to work on my card play or find out if my engine ever really did catch. But even I would be so lunging on the Resign button here:

1zzzzz   plays Alchemist
1zzzzz   draws Curse, Curse
1zzzzz   plays Alchemist
1zzzzz   shuffles deck
1zzzzz   draws Curse, Curse
1zzzzz   draws Alchemist, Estate, Bandit Camp, Copper, Torturer

Okay, so one of these days you do get to play a decent hand, maybe. But at what psychic cost.

Dear Jerry Thomas,

I am sorry that on turn 18, certain you had me on piles at any moment yet finally holding a playable hand of TR-TR-Moat-Scheme-Scheme in a Cultist/Rebuild game I was behind the whole time, I said "Behold my awesome engine", only to line up a TR with my Rebuild on turn 20, trashing Duchies into Provinces and buying the final Estate for a 1-point victory. I hope you realize I was mocking my deck and felt a bit of an arse snaking out the victory.

Shouldn't invite nasty comebacks emptying remaining Estates lest you, I suggest, win even after Rebuild.

While I do agree that he did not play optimally, his first two potion hands were 2P. He already lost that game at that point regardless of what he did. Pretty much any Dominion player, regardless of how good they were would have lost that game hitting 2P like that.

So I really just had to do it and princed away all the prizes. Unfortunately that gold flood junks up your deck quite a bit on a board without villages so I had to compensate with some princed Adventurers.

Dear opponent to the left of me in a 3-player IRL game,
I'm sorry I deliberately gave our mutual opponent good draws with his Advisors just to ensure that he got his share of the Provinces away from you so my alt-VP strategy could beat you.  It may have been good tactics, but I don't blame you for being annoyed by it.

And yes, I've already apologized to her in person; she still doesn't want to play with Advisor anymore (she already didn't like it much).  The upshot is I didn't even need to do this because I wound up getting enough points that I could have beaten her even if she'd gotten a couple more Provinces.

Dear opponent,

I definitely feel some guilt over my game 7 tournament win. I was first player on a board with Goons, King's Court, Council Room, Plan, and honestly I overlooked it before turn 1, Fishing Village. You outplayed me for the first few turns, but after I was the first to get 2 King's Courts, on the first turn I connected them with a CR, I hit exactly enough buys to empty a second pile and buy out the Curses. Crazy finish to a fun, tough series.

Was like who is that bad and is matched up with dingan. Man this match maker sucks.

The trouble is, he only lost by 5 points. So, he's going to think that his strategy was pretty good, and he lost only because of bad luck.

Yesterday I played a new player (he had only one previous game recorded on gokosalvager) in a board that featured King's Court, Scheme, and Sabouteur. I'm very sorry for making you believe, like many begginers do, that Sabouteur is actually a good card. That was the first time in my almost 3000 games of Dominion where I believe, Sabouteur was actually good for anything else than a desperation gamble (which has never worked, by the way...). I'm afraid that the experience might be quite a setback in your evolution as a player (and maybe even in your enjoyment of this amazing game) and I feel truly guilty for that.

Sab wasn't horrible, you just usually have better things to do with the space it takes up (card, terminal, cost). If you can throw it in, why not?

I'm glad it's gone though, I hate that it hit Provinces.

I once got hit HARD by Sabateour when I ran a Stables/FG engine. Every time it hit a Stables, until I got some Border Villages and Silvers.

Just had a game with university, possession, gladiator, caravan, and a bunch of other stuff, I can't remember it all.

Turn 1:
Bought gladiator

Turn 2:
Bought potion

Turn 3:
Play gladiator, revealing potion, opponent cannot reveal the same. Play 3 coppers, buy possession.

Opponent immediately resigns.

Saboteur was one of those cards whose utility increased dramatically with the frequency with which you could play it. It was, for that reason, a monster on King's Court boards.

I'm sorry/not sorry for building an engine that ended the game with a score of 56 to -1 in a game with only the base set.  I wish you were Lord Bottington, but alas, even LB would have ended up with more green cards than 5 meager estates...

OK but seriously, the new client has two GIANT RED Xs, and a big red "1" on two different piles, how did you not three-pile to beat me for the last four turns, agh.

Prince is only up to $4 cost actions. Even if you could, it might not be better than topdecking a new Counting House every turn through Travelling Fair. But you can't Prince it anyways, not an important discussion.

I am curious what the mirror is like on this board, does it degenerate to whoever plays a Counting House first?

I cant recall the exact game anymore, I just know that it had "Donate", "Cultist" and "Page" in it.
As soon as my opponent was able to exchange his "Hero" for a "Champion", he bought the "Donate" and got rid of all his spam cards. Just to have me play 5 cultists, to receive all the remaining ruins, in the last turn where he was unprotected.

And I am sorry for him, cause I encouraged him in the chat to rather use donate sooner than later. I had ment "far sooner", but that way, the timing was horrible.

Dear My Opponent, I'm sorry the Black Market had Overlord, City Quarter, and Fortune in it.  And that it combos with Museum.

... And that you neglected to buy any BMs.

Dear my opponent, I'm sorry you didn't open Page/Knight like you should have on a 2/5 opening, and didn't pursue either Knights or Travellers until I had a Champion, multiple Warriors, and most of the Knights.

You got two Provinces early!  Which doesn't help once I've turned your deck into two Provinces, 4 Coppers, and 2 Royal Blacksmiths.

Dear my opponent, I'm truly sorry that I discarded your Sea Hag with mine on the first shuffle. And on the second one. I guess the third time in a row was the worst, though.

Turn 3 - drsteelhammer
..
d plays a Sea Hag.
M discards a Sea Hag.
M gains a Curse.


Turn 6 - drsteelhammer
...
d plays a Sea Hag.
M discards a Sea Hag.
M gains a Curse.

Turn 7 - drsteelhammer
....
d plays a Sea Hag.
M discards a Sea Hag.
M gains a Curse.

Dear DrSteelhammer, I'm sorry man.

You got to open Junk Dealer, I was down so many points with only 2 provinces to go, your deck was so much better than mine and I had no hope in the world. I threw my last hail mary, taking a Province and I was sure you would snag the last one. Somehow, you managed to get 4 Provinces in hand with a highly consistent deck.

Basically, with no other trashing on the board, you don't want to be the sucker who gives the other player (nearly) free trashing, right?

You can be the sucker if you're Governoring an Estate into something you actually need for your deck, but Bishop only gives you +vp and otherwise the effect is symmetrical so you only want it if you want those VPs.

In a game against Cave-o-sapien, with Scrying Pool, Swindler, no way to play more than 1 terminal a turn, and no +Buy.

Step 1: Start building.
Step 2: Hit Potion with Swindler, turn it into Death Cart.
Step 3: Start buying Pools while Cave doesn't have a Potion, using Pool's attack to force a Copper topdeck so that I can guarantee Swindling into Curse.
Step 4: Win Pool split 7-3, then use my Pools to hunt for Cave's remaining Pools to Swindle them into nothing.

I ended the game with 6 Pools. Cave ended with 1 Pool. Oh, and I ended up turning 5 of Cave's Coppers into Curses.

It was not pretty.

Another Spanish word, really. 'Plata' means silver, 'Platina' is a diminuitive form that could be translated as 'little silver'. Yes, it ends in an -a, but it's singular. Either way, 'plata' was never a classical Latin word; the Latin word for 'silver' is 'argentum', which can be seen in French's 'argent' ('silver' or 'money'), as well as the chemical symbol Ag.

If we're going to do this, then I may as well participate.

'Platinum' in this sense, is arguably a proper noun. It means "a card named 'Platinum'". It's even capitalized in the game log. Usually, in English, the convention is to pluralize proper nouns simply by adding an 's', ignoring whatever other conventions might exist for common nouns.

For example:

"How many Toyota Camrys do we have on the lot?" (i.e. you don't write 'Camries')

"How many Kennedys have served in Congress?" (you don't write 'Kennedies')

By adding "s" or "es," yes. Dominion has some fun examples. I gave him eight Ruinses, then bought out the Nobleses.

However! The rule doesn't come up much for most people. But for gamers, for a few decades now, it has come up plenty. And this group has not chosen to follow that rule; they pluralize the proper nouns as if they were the thing they refer to, leaving them untouched if already plural - my deck has 4 Llanowar Elves and 4 Cities of Brass, not 4 Llanowar Elveses and 4 City of Brasses.

Since they're the ones actually pluralizing proper nouns and that's how they do it, the trend is for that to be the new rule.

None of this affects Platinum of course. I think when people started saying Platina they were just being silly; if not, man, guys, what? Some people now though may be used to seeing people saying Platina. The actual plural is of course Platinum, or if you want, Platinums. But people saying Platina do communicate clearly.

I got a lot of treasures from bm, and then my uncle got thief from bm. It was horrible.

I guess you're posting this on your uncle's behalf? :P

Either that, or you feel sorry for your uncle for buying such a bad card from the Black Market.

To be fair, "opponent has got good alt-treasures from the Black Market" is actually one of the better situations for Thief.

Disciple is pretty often stronger than Teacher and it's not at all unusual in high level games to go for Disciple and not get any Teachers.

You have a good point but I won with all four tokens on different supply piles, so in that case I think teacher was better.

Um. Buying Peasant, upgrading it in four steps to Teacher, then putting it on your Tavern mat four times and calling it four times has to take at least 13 turns. Probably several more, unless you do a preposterously extreme trick like Summoning a Peasant then Donating your deck.

Given Big Money wins on turn 17 or so, you need to have some really strong justification for playing Teacher so many times instead of doing something that gets you VP and ends the game quicker.

I opened 3/4 while my opponent opened 5/2 on a Mountebank board. He wins the Curse split, but then he plays big money and greens way too early, while I clean up with Lookout and make an engine with KC and Catacombs. This is the chat from the game:

La-Ya:  hi

Opponent:  you too

Dear opponent:

I'm sorry that you're a bad player and I crushed you,

Let me tell everyone about it.

To clarify, this thread is really for "I'm sorry I chose a strategy/tactic that's particularly unpleasant to play against" (painfully slow engines, pins, milling provinces, etc.) or "I'm sorry I got really lucky and/or you got really unlucky," not "I'm sorry you're bad at Dominion and/or I'm good at Dominion."

Yes, we chatted some time afterwards and they told me it was the first time they saw "the damned thing". I did nothing different in my first game with the card, although we were 4 players with two of us trying out the same thing so it wasn't that bad, but I certainly got the five rats-hand before it dawned on me you can't just use it as a usual trasher..

What rating had this fella? I'm always surprised over how these sorrow people never seem to check the ratings before they insult someone like this. "Yeah, I'm like ten points over you, don't you think that my win here was.. I don't know, like.. probable?"

Instead this nonsense about luck, annoying as heck.   

Edit: And oh, I kinda like humble/crumble as a opening, at least if I plan to go for Castle heavily. Maybe I have just been, ahem, lucky when that have seem to work out for me..

Like the one who opened Page/Potion and whined how his "Strategy" was foiled by Page not reappearing until 2nd shuffle. Called it "worst possible shuffle" even though he got an Alchemist (as the only potion card in the kingdom) after 1st shuffle. I shudder at imagining the amount of his whining if Potion had met two Estates.

Dear bparnold31;

I'm so sorry.

Yes, I did buy 9 Border Villages and 6 Torturers to go with them. And yes, I had to keep playing them for deck control. And yes, I was not really close to ending the game yet.

If you would only have gained a curse once in a while, you might have actually had something to do after turn 12.

I'm so sorry you were stuck in this abusive relationship.

Sincerely,

The first 2 Castles seem like traps to me. At the very least, whenever my opponent goes for them and I buy better stuff it opens up the possibility for me to grab the far superior Small, Haunted and Opulent Castles.

This game was played using the physical copy, so no link.
Kingdom: Haven, Highway, Lost City, Saboteur, Goons, Hireling, KC, probably a couple 3's and 4's. Some trasher, maybe Dominate?
This is probably the most sorry I have felt because of a game of Dominion:

a) getting the first 5 coin turn, allowing me to buy first Saboteur
b) proceeding to play it on my opponent incessantly, due to a KC later that same shuffle
c) using all of this in an engine with really long turns
d) throwing goons into the mix, so that I
e) drove many piles down to one card left, knowing they could do nothing about it without any remotely decent cards


The turn when I finally decided to play nine highways (only nine because I didn't want a third pile to run out) and run out the colonies only ended up making around a quarter of my score. Final score was 317 (mostly VP chips from goons) to 7 (3 starting estates, 1 duchy trashed from opponent's last turn province (their deck was only mostly useless because of haven), and 1 VP chip from when they briefly had a goons). All because of a couple lucky shuffles with Saboteur and KC.


My opponent had chosen to include Saboteur, so I was afraid of my deck getting destroyed. I am pretty evenly matched with this particular opponent; I got lucky here. I definitely could have ended the game earlier and put them out of their misery, but once I started, I got carried away trying to see just how many points I could get. Needless to say, we are never playing with Saboteur again, or probably goons (although the goons is a shame).

Dear -dg-, I am sorry.
I managed to Prince (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Prince) a Tracker (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Tracker) quite early. By this, I fully realized the benefits of topdecking.
The Kingdom also contained Secret Passage (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Secret_Passage), Harbinger (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Harbinger) and King's Court (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/King's_Court).
For Payload, I then used Butcher (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Butcher) and Rogue (http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Rogue).
Playing all that stuff gave great deck control, but took way too long...

Dear my opponent,

It's not your fault that I got Swindler from the Black Market deck and took out Dame Natalie with it, leaving with you with no way to stop my one remaining Knight. And it's definitely not your fault that I then got, among other things, Scheme, Lost City, and Mountebank from the Black Market, enabling me to draw my deck and play Dame Molly, Swindler, and Mountebank each turn. I don't blame you for resigning.
