Dominion General Discussion / what's up with cursed gold
« on: January 17, 2018, 11:45:25 pm »
how often should you play it?

3
To be fair, the fact that ehunt opened Leprechaun leads me to believe early Gold gaining is very important.

I would love to agree but my memory is that my play was indefensible.

ugh terrible draw...

Turn 2 - ehunt
e plays 3 Coppers.
e buys and gains a Steward.
e shuffles their deck.
e draws 3 Coppers, a Steward and a Leprechaun.

...
didn't turn out so bad!

Turn 3 - ehunt
e plays a Leprechaun.
e gains a Gold.
e takes Haunting.
e receives Haunting
e topdecks a Steward.
e discards Haunting.
e plays 3 Coppers.
e buys and gains a Steward.
e draws 3 Coppers, an Estate and a Steward.

the thing is, vampire isn't a very good card at all. it should be in the bottom third.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: How good is Goat?
« on: December 24, 2017, 09:10:49 am »
My sense is that Goat is a phenomenal card. Even if it didn't start in your deck, it utterly smokes, say, Loan. Is it worth skipping Chapel if Goat's on the board? Skipping masquerade?

But Loan cycles and is effectively worth 1$ more than Goat when trashing copper. Is the fact that Goat can trash Estates and doesn’t trip over Silvers and other copies of itself really enough to say that Goat smokes Loan?

I am talking about hypothetical Goat that you can buy, obviously Heirloom-Goat is a lot better than non-Heirloom Loan.

Good point on cycling. Trashing Estates is huge though, and Loan hitting a non-copper is really annoying -- although maybe it's roughly equal in probability to drawing Goat with nothing you want to trash?

Dominion General Discussion / ambassador + groundskeeper
« on: December 19, 2017, 09:02:41 am »
Apologies if this has been discussed before. Playing on an Ambassador board with limited +buy (bridge troll, but no extra actions, so max 3 buys on a turn, and then one foregoes playing Ambassador that turn). Groundskeepers split 5-5. My opponent resigned, but it isn't clear he was behind. Strategies for advancing such a board? I stupidly closed the window and have forgotten one of the kingdom cards:

Pilgrimage

Groundskeeper
Den of Sin
Bridge Troll
Advisor
Skulk
Secret Cave (+Magic Lamp/Wishes)
Wishing Well
Ambassador
Beggar

Rules Questions / Re: Poverty Hex
« on: December 18, 2017, 11:47:38 pm »
You discard at the time the Hex is received -- which, as you point out, is rarely going to have any effect on you given that it's the buy phase already and you've played all your treasures -- Poverty is a pretty lucky Hex to draw when you're buying your Cursed Village.

As a general principle in Dominion, you just do what a card says literally, even if the result seems to go against the flavor of a card.

« on: December 18, 2017, 08:33:13 pm »
anyone else having connection problems?

I think this is about as much as you can hope to get out of a Charm

e plays 3 Silvers, a Loan, a Charm and a Copper.
e reveals a Silver.
e discards a Silver.
e buys a Sprawling Castle.
e gains a Province.

why do Envious and Deluded have their respective names? I would think you'd have to be awfully deluded to confuse Silver and Gold with copper.

i'll start

Ghost is good but it's so much work to get with either haunted mirror or exorcist. in the former case the fact that there's only one can be really painful. I'm just not sure ghost is worth it. Still, really good card.

Wishes on the other hand, man, that magic lamp.

Rules Questions / River's Gift + Forest's Gift
« on: December 10, 2017, 03:08:34 pm »
These two boons are to be kept until cleanup. What is the practical effect of this? Does it affect how many times you may receive the same boon? Does it mean that your opponent can "steal" the boon? Or is it pure reminder?

Rules Questions / Blessed Village + Moon's Gift + Changeling
« on: December 10, 2017, 12:43:32 pm »
In reading the log below, am I correct that rphilip could take a Changeling for free (i.e. not give up the Blessed Village)? He tries to exchange, but Changeling's abstract ability has lost the possibility of finding Blessed Village? Or does "exchange" necessarily require the trade to actually take place?

Turn 1 - rphilip
r plays 4 Coppers.
r buys and gains a Blessed Village.
r takes The Moon's Gift.
r receives The Moon's Gift
r looks at a card.
Changeling loses track of Blessed Village (it moved).
r topdecks a card.
r discards The Moon's Gift.
r draws 5 cards.

I buy Annex in sloggy games when I am hopelessly losing and can't afford the Duchy. I think I have always lost these games anyway, but not because of the decision to buy Annex.

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere!

1) are logs available now?
2) any data trove for questions like "how many games involve Tower?"

Search me why you would want a changeling instead, but hey, edge cases abound.

curse pile is empty and opponent's swindler hits your familiar....

sorry

Rules Questions / Re: Prince + Necromancer
« on: November 19, 2017, 01:52:46 pm »
Thanks guys. Same question for if Necromancer plays Encampment in the trash (and Gold/Plunder is not revealed). Does the Encampment in the trash try to set itself aside and fail?

This is actually addressed in the official FAQ. :)

mea culpa, i am lazy and haven't bought the irl expansion yet. Still confused about the official rule that's happening. Is it Lose Track, or something else? A card can't lose track of itself, right? I guess it's the same as my original question for Prince, even though I understand the behavior.
