Rules Questions / Re: Changeling: rules bug?

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....


Rules Questions / Re: Prince + Necromancer
« on: Today at 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.

Rules Questions / Prince + Necromancer
« on: October 30, 2017, 11:51:19 pm »
If Prince is in the trash, Necromancer-as-Prince can't be set aside, so in particular, can't set a card from your hand aside, right? This is consistent with the online implementation, but I'm not sure what the underlying principle is. (It's something like: Necromancer's specific instruction to leave Prince in the trash outweighs Prince's instruction to set Prince aside.)

devil's workshop ---> devil's haircut

Like: it's the best 2p strategy game there is. It's everything I like about Magic minus the cost and the RPS feeling. Multiplayer is also really fun.

My only dislike is that I can't predict how long a game will take before I sit down to it.

this isn't that good, but is satisfying: if you get messenger and sir martin, your opponent gets nothing

Game Reports / Counting House without Traveling Fair or Mountebank
« on: September 12, 2017, 08:41:40 am »
Here's a board where I went for Counting House. I got very good shuffle luck, but I still think it was the right move. Can anyone think of a better strategy? I would note that Magpie and Border Village gave significant shuffle control, which made it easier to avoid the dreaded "Counting House on top of the shuffle and now I gotta wade through 6 turns of copper" problem.

game #6795959. Estates, no Colony/Platinum.

Dominion General Discussion / Minion vs. Diplomat
« on: September 12, 2017, 06:57:11 am »
When the opponent plays Minion and you use Diplomat's reaction, note that you will have 4 cards in hand, so you are immune from the Minion attack. One might say that you have.... diplomatic immunity from it.

Dominion General Discussion / Dominion Confessions
« on: September 09, 2017, 01:27:31 pm »
I never really know what's going on on Possession boards. I just buy cards and build a deck for a while, then kind of wing it.

I support maintaining strategy advice on the Wiki (along the lines of "this card is important/powerful/not important/not powerful" and "this card has particularly explosive and perhaps non-obvious combos with that card"), with links to longer articles.

There is tremendous value as a brand new player to the simplistic "Chapel is good/Chancellor is bad" type advice, even if it's generally not enough to make you a top 500 Dominion player. For that matter, even as an experienced and not-bad player, I find that I improve a lot when I learn from the Qvist rankings that a card that I've been undervaluing is highly valued by others (Groundskeeper comes to mind).

Keep too. Always gotta go for that Silver/Humble Castle opening (replaced of course by Silver/Copper in games without Castles).

is that really always a bad move? you only get one crack at the Humble Castle.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Banning 5 Cards
« on: August 26, 2017, 11:49:16 am »

if there's no strategy to it:

Sauna/Avanto (does that count as two??)

It's more interesting if you get to change each game. Generally you want to eliminate high skill cards and cards that require strong tactical decisions if the opponent is better than you, and you want the opposite against weaker players. Also, if you know you are second player, you should ban cards that greatly benefit first player (Governor comes to mind), and first player should ban cards that favor longer games. I suppose first player should also ban Tax.

Dominion General Discussion / Farmer's Market + Defiled Shrine
« on: August 22, 2017, 06:12:48 am »
This is an interesting pair of cards to dance around. With Defiled Shrine, you can deprive the opponent of the ability to cash the Farmer's Market for points by buying a Farmer's Market when there are four tokens. I played a game just now with these two and Villa, which somewhat eliminated the usual consequences of overbuying Farmer's Market. Strange times!

Dominion General Discussion / Re: What would you open here?
« on: August 17, 2017, 10:43:39 am »
Thanks for the feedback. I hadn't even considered Sauna/Forager. I wound up going for Sauna/Silver and my opponent split 5/2 and had some bad luck drawing his Count, so we didn't really get a test.

One argument against Potion/Forager is the relatively low payload for Scrying Pool. There's no extra actions, the best payload is Count (which is not slim pickings), and the only cantrip around is Sauna (besides Upgrade, which will force a trash).

I think the decision is not easy, whether you split 5/2 or 4/3.

No colonies, no shelters

« on: July 09, 2017, 11:15:35 am »
If we're gonna say "names for things in Dominion are stupid" about terms like Trash for Benefit, the term Golden Sombrero is far far far dumber.

the golden sombrero is funny because... why is it called that??
