Rules Questions / Re: Enchantress on a Ghosted Enchantress
« on: February 07, 2018, 12:09:27 am »
Ghost:
Reveal cards from your deck until you reveal an Action. Discard the other cards and set aside the Action. At the start of your next turn, play it twice.

Enchantress:
Until your next turn, the first time each other player plays an Action card on their turn, they get +1 Card and +1 Action instead of following its instructions.
At the start of your next turn,
+2 Cards
----

So your Ghost is holding your Enchantress, and your opponent plays Enchantress.

Now, because they have Enchantress in play:

Play 1. +1 Card, +1 Action

Play 2. Until your next turn, the first time each other player plays an Action card on their turn, they get +1 Card and +1 Action instead of following its instructions.
At the start of your next turn,
+2 Cards

Throne still plays the card, even if it was trashed on the first play.

Is this a dog theme, or did you purposely spell "rough" incorrectly?

There could be a Treasure that gives X-factorial amount of money.
Maybe we could call it Bank!

In fact lots of Dominion traffic has moved to discord (thus, not being here), despite it not sorting posts by how approved they are, and despite the presence there of both Awaclus and Chris is me.
The world is just moving too fast for me. I still haven't been to Reddit and stuff is already going somewhere else? I like my comfort zone. (That comfort includes real cards with established friends, instead of playing online with people I do not have personal relationships with.)

I'm a little disappointed it doesn't have events. I love how you can add them to every set.
I too was hoping that there would be "set independent" components here, with the top candidate being Heirlooms.  For example, P/C don't require Prosperity cards, and Shelters doesn't require Dark Ages cards.  However, it turns out that they need to be paired with their respective Kingdom cards.

I did inquire about just how independent they could be as a variant to have more of the other Kingdom cards be non-Nocturne stuff, while still having many to all of the Heirlooms....

I feel like Haunted Mirror and Secret Cave might be problematic*. The rest could probably be used with a lot of different Kingdoms.


*They include using other Nocturne cards

there is definitely an application gap when you only play a few battles per week.
I'm lucky if I play once a month...

Haven't seen anyone include the animated Clone Wars film, either.

(Which, honestly, I saw as a huge missed opportunity to jump into the 3D market early)

I just got Nocturne and Empires a couple weeks before Christmas. So far, I've enjoyed the Nocturne cards a bit more than the Empires cards, but I'm enjoying both a bit less than Adventures and Dark Ages.

Although, my Adventures cards being warped/curled still bothers me quite a lot.

Man, we shifted our policy so that everyone has to work at least until 4:00. I adjusted my schedule for that, and I'm feeling so antsy sitting here this late in the day. It's going to take some getting used to.

I also don't like coming in late at 7:30. All the good parking spaces are taken. *whine*
I either work 10-6 or 5-1. I'm usually in bed sometime around 2-3am daily.

It was not self-sustaining at $30/mo so they kept increasing membership costs until people stopped using it. They were then bought by a data-mining company who dropped the price to $10/mo which saw an influx of 150k subscribers in the first week or so.

And paying theaters a portion of the ticket price would not work for exhibitors. The studios get their millions of dollars from those ticket prices. Theaters have to pay out fees and taxes from their smaller portion of that ticket cost. Would the studios benefit by funding this program? I'm not sure. They already spend $200 million to make and market a movie, how much are they willing to shell out before they are guaranteed a return.

Advertising money. They're just selling user data to advertising agencies.

I'm terrible at ranking things, but I think they went something like this:

1. V
2. IV
3. VII
4. VIII
5. VI
6. RO
7. [Solo or IX will be better than I,II,III, guaranteed]
8. III
9. I
10. II

Amazing. Every word of what you just said was wrong.

They used to do that, and they have been talking about doing it again.

AMC locations are very rarely VIP style theaters.

Again, they are just selling your information to advertisers. The subscription cost is to add supplemental income (and to prevent a huge pushback from theaters for that perceived value argument.)

10 year ago I had a plan for a "season pass" type loyalty program at my theater, but the amount of data collection we would need to prevent misuse was well beyond the effort I was willing to put into the program for a single 16-plex. We have since gone to the simpler "punch-card" type program that doesn't require any data tracking, or sign-up.

I'm still fighting against the push to go to assigned seating, but I know the trend is going to push me there eventually.

Because of the "vanilla" nature of +Cards?

23
Five years ago it was $30 a month. Now that they're owned by a data-mining company, they are just using all the sales data to sell to advertisers.

They WILL upgrade your account to a "premium" if you use it too much.

AMC is fighting it because it devalues their product.

You cannot use it on premium cost showings or at VIP style cinemas.

I could care less, honestly. Just don't expect the theater to help, or even know how to help. Exhibitors have less information about the program than consumers. It's just a MasterCard on the theater end.

Well, you can only discard a card once, so my bet is you simply choose to discard via Haunted Mirror (gain Ghost) or discard via Market Square (gain Gold) but I would be shocked if you were allowed to gain both from a single discard.
