Sometimes it isn't your day for Swindler

I'm not actually sure which side you're saying got unlucky here. Having 3 Golds replaced with 3 Farmlands could either be good or bad depending on when in the game it happened; the results could have ended up either far better or far worse for either player.

How often do you have an empty Gold pile?

Now yours doesn't make much sense. How can a house be raced anywhere?

Maybe it can, if it's complex enough.

Something different I encountered today: check out this sentence. It has both correct grammar and sensible meaning

The complex houses married and single soldiers and their families

this was incredibly confusing to me, I'm not sure if others have an easier time with it. Resolution: [The complex] houses [married and single soldiers and their families]

Somewhat less confusing: The horse raced past the barn fell. Resolution: [the horse (that) raced past the barn] fell. Apperently they're called garden path sentences.
[the house (that was) raced past the barn] fell.  The way you have it has a different meaning than the original sentence.

The house?

All of my hobbies and interests are exploding with excitement all at once.

Making babies is one of your hobbies?

ILL-GOTTEN GAINS is a powerful copper that can act as a cursing attack instead if necessary. Oh, and it's ALSO PROMPT.

No comment yet about how Fair is a Travelling Fair that doesn't travel? Such great flavor choices. Makes me hope that there is a project called "Minstrel" that just gives you +1 action.
I don't know how international it is, but in the UK, "Minstrels" are a brand of chocolates that resemble black Go stones.

So if we do get Minstrel as a project giving you +1 action, then I would be tempted to put a bag of Minstrels on it. Each turn you may take a Minstrel from the bag and use it as a Villager, for the duration of that turn only. During clean-up you eat the Minstrel if you haven't used it.

gkrieg, I am completely lost by your clues. What does FL even mean? Florida, Liechtenstein? Careless clues would normally go with overlooking a connection (like my horrible Bane clue in the first match), but yours didn't even steer me anywhere.

Well FL had to go for multiple things so it was the postal code of Florida.

For the record, I would have guessed beat, crash and bug first.

Are you sure you played against a human being?

Also, while it might seem like Lord Rattington is playing with Rats for the first time... it isn't, it just likes to do that.

i'm with u.  How is this even close to that low. It thins ur dek, turns estates into useful cards.

It doesn't thin your deck, it replaces stop cards with other stop cards, and it is itself a stop card that requires you to get another stop card (Potion) before you can even get it. Turning Estates into Gold is not as great as it sounds when you can only start doing that on your third shuffle after adding in two glorified Curses to your deck.

I would like to hear what was the infamous

real algorithm for this game

haha wow look at all of the replies. that's amazing

i wonder how many people have read about these ratings then. i remember reading the qvist ratings and thinking that i wanted to compare cards of different costs and then i found these and it worked well.

i wondered why the qvist ratings arent presented in a combined form like this. where cost is factored in. is that data available somewhere i think i would like to compare and see where things fall out.

do we know if its the same people voting on each list. sorry i have so many questions haha

AdamH's rating forms got posted at least on the Dominion Discord and reddit.

The reason why Qvist's ratings aren't presented like this is probably that the method of rating is different. Whereas AdamH's version asks you to rate each card on a scale from 1 to 10, Qvist's version asks you to order them from strongest to weakest. Qvist's website allows you to do the ranking within each cost category individually, or by ranking the entire list of cards at the same time, but probably most people only do the former. As a result, it's pretty impossible to know whether the weakest $4 is weaker or stronger than the weakest $5 since they're both just the weakest card on their respective list, but on AdamH's list, if one had an average of 1.3 and the other was 1.9, you can do the ranking easily.

It's not the exact same people, but probably a lot of the same people on both lists.

Man, I really don't get why people continually antagonize Donald X.  It's almost like you all want him to stop answering questions on the forum again.

Donald X. is fine, why do people even complain about Donald X. They can't all be the least your-mom-joke-using game designer ever.

Two of the things I noticed was how low Raider is listed (I've always thought it very nasty) and that SCOUT ISN'T THE LAST CARD!!!!!

How exactly is Transmute under scout?

People voted it worse.

The main thing to note is that this is one guy's opinion, while Qvist is an aggregate of many people's opinions, weighted by ranking.

It's not one guy's opinion, it's also a popular vote based ranking. AdamH's own opinion would probably be significantly better than his list or Qvist's list.

I would agree on Standard Magic but think Magic still has an edge in older formats like Legacy.

Yeah, there's a much wider range of competitive strategies in something like Legacy.

Witch is a powerful terminal +2 cards that can act as an Attack instead if necessary. Oh, and it's ALSO PROMPT (if you have Innovation).

Seems like a good place for me to make sure I know how to use this fancy Chrome Extension.




All right, I guess I don't know what the kingdom button or the card image button do.

The kingdom button requires you to type each card name in the kingdom.

After reading through some more various threads that weren't actually talking about Dominion cards, I think the solution is to consider capitalization for matching card names. Way too many uses of words like "fair" and "page" and "haven't" that shouldn't be matched. Probably better to err on the side of a Dominion card being not matched than a non-Dominion card being matched.

Haven't we had enough of Dominion cards not being linked? Is this Fair to the card names we forget to capitalize? I say there's nothing nothing wrong with linking words to Dominion cards when they're not being used to name the cards. These Pages are on the Dominion forums, after all.

You mean the Dominion Forums.

Most of the obscure bugs are known about, and are just a much lower priority than the other work. And in most cases, what people would encounter arenít actually bugs at all, so I donít think this would help. They donít have the problem of not enough things to do.

Really?  Wow.  I thought that Rio Games bought Dominion and I was assuming that under that corporate umbrella it made sense. 

So is shuffle IT independent of dominion, or just like a third party contractor?

Shuffle iT is Stef, he has some kind of a contract with RGG.

From a strategy perspective, Dominion has been arguably more complex than Standard Magic for a long time. From a rules perspective, Dominion is almost certainly never going to get even close to Magic's level.

Though that probably just means I spend too long here and not enough time doing more important stuff, so maybe I shouldn't be bragging. )-8

I don't think that's the case.
