Finally, Prince of Pirate Ships!

Although, not very realistic.

Hmm, coming home from the Austrian Nationals, where there was a game with pirate ship, i think Prince of pirate ship is vialble in 3-player and a real beast in 4-player games.

i had the same problem two days ago. You can find a link to the goko salvager extension on the chrome web store if you go to the dominion online resources page (use the link in ragingducks signature) and click on chrome. then reinstall. That solve the issue for me.

It's really weird playing without the extension, once you are used to it.

I have absolutely no idea why this happened.

don't worry. it's my fault not yours...

let me explain. somehow the extension did not load. Usually you just have to refresh the browserpage and then it loads. It did not. I cleared the cache, reloaded a couple of times, then went to the chrome extensions looked for updates, and while fiddling around there i accidently hit the trash bin button. and suddenly goko salvager was gone :o

When i tried to reinstall i couldn't find the extension in the chrome webstore. That was what i was referring to when i said i had the same problem as RTT. maybe RTT has a similar confession to make.

Tournaments and Events / Re: 3-Player Tournament?
« on: February 04, 2014, 02:16:12 am »
well, there could be a test run with players from only one timezone (e.g. europe).

The much harder problem is determinating seating order. For everybody to have a fair chance they should sit in position 1,2,3 equally often. That means rounds have to be a multiple of 3.

and the way goko handles seating right now, there will be a plethora of restarts before the correct seating order is achieved. Any thoughts on how to solve this?

thats a cool idea. I really like 3p-dominion, and such a tournament could really help raising it's popularity. I also think there is still undiscovered 3p stategy. Count me in.

i like theese rule of thumbs. They are basically a Dominion 101. So i will use them for new players to give them basic guidelines to weigh difeerent options Action/money/VP-cards against each other.

Of course they are not the be-all-end-all guidelines for the hardcore players out there. And they don't even want to be that. They help to play a sound BM game, without getting distracted with buying too many actions, even more so in 3+ player games.

Engine building comes later. At this point you can throw theese rules out of the window. You don't need them any longer then. Until then those rules will help you along.

In the later adventures you start with 5 copper/ 5 curses against 7 Silver / 3 Provinces. I've burned >20zaps/game in the later stages. and the AI in the boss levels is definitely working together to screw you.

i play via chrome on my pc and my phone. when i open goko.com on my phone i'm automatically logged in.

i use an asus padfone infinity. However the screen is cut off on the left side when i'm looking at goko.com in phone mode. when i'm using it in tablet mode everything is fine (but slower than the pc)

i just checked. google play has still the app available, where you can play agaist a rather weak AI. There are all expansions except guilds.

There is also a cool app called randominion by doug z, if you are looking for an randomizer when playing IRL.

And of course if you have a VERY stable internet connection, you can play on goko.com. I have tried that and it works quite fine. It would be my favourite way of playing dominion, if there was only a way to get the extenson running.

here's one for the veteran's.


This game is not a money game,
this game is rebuild, bloody rebuild

I can't believe the board today
Oh, I can't close my eyes
And make it go away
How long...
How long must we play this card
How long, how long...
'cause tactic...there can be just one
this game...

Opened silver silver turn one and two
engine pieces are a dead end street
But I don't hit five turn three and four
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

rebuild, Bloody rebuild
rebuild, Bloody rebuild
rebuild, Bloody rebuild

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within the piles
And engines, slogs, big money games
Torn apart

rebuild, Bloody rebuild
rebuild, Bloody rebuild

How long...
How long must we play this card
How long, how long...

Game Reports / Re: Interaction: Hermit / Governor
« on: December 10, 2013, 03:24:32 pm »
this is not about adding Governor to the Hermit / Market square combo. Look at the kingdom. There is no market square available. This is that governor can substitute Market square, to reach a similar result. I just wanted to hear your guys opinion, whether this is a fluke, or a real thing.

Game Reports / Interaction: Hermit / Governor
« on: December 10, 2013, 01:57:20 pm »
i just killed time with the bots before TV, and played this match against Lord Bottington.

http://dom.retrobox.eu/?/20131210/log.50955175e4b013548a3d58f0.1386700710453.txt



Code: [Select]
Hermit, Wishing Well, Baron, Treasure Map, Band of Misfits, Governor, Inn, Laboratory, Market, Border Village
I realized that governor gives you gold. So maybe a hermit/market square gameplay could work. I got myself 5 Madmen before i cashed in. Much to my surprise i had 6 Provinces after turn 11. That's blazingly fast.
What do you guys think. Is hermit / Governor a viable strategy?

just add talisman, and you are there:

turn 1: buy watchtower
turn 2: buy talisman
turn 3: play talisman + CCC buy treasure map, gain treasure map
            topdeck both with watchtower
turn 4: profit
Just open Stonemason/Treasure Map/Treasure Map (with Baker of course) after your opponent opened Noble Brigand. Draw 3 Cards, reshuffle, draw 2 Treasure Maps.

Turn 2: Profit!

No need for Watchtower or Talisman.  ;D

that's another way of doing it. I just wanted to mention this combo, since we there once was an article about it on the front page of the blog, and we're discussing watchtower combos possibilities, and nobody has mentioned it so far.

something that seems to work is to try and go to an empty room, while the rooms lobby is still loading. you have to refresh maybe once or twice.

Once you are in the empty room you can create and play games, without delay. Not the most fun in the world, but at least you can try out whacky strategies.

this way i got a couple of games running (even yesterday evening).

Goko Dominion Online / goko system Update 9/20/13
« on: September 23, 2013, 04:32:12 am »
it has finally happened. The rating decline has been set to normal speed. This should cause all the ratings go up. Good times for the more occasional players, as they have no longer have to run to stand still.

https://getsatisfaction.com/goko/topics/system_update_9_20_13

"We updated the rating system so that it loses confidence in its estimate of your ability at a much slower rate. It's back to what it was originally. What this means in practice is that the rating you see will naturally decay at a slower rate, but also that the amount of points you can gain for a win will be smaller following a period of rating decay."

Is there a way to make goko dominion salvager work on an Android tablet. I just got myself one and goko works quite fine on the chrome browser.

I looked for a way to install the salvager extension, but it seems that you cant't. Does anybody know if/how its possible to run the salvager extension in an android enviroment?
