"Graverobber:

    Bot/Stuck: When the AI plays a Graverobber, it may become stuck. This is similiar to a previous problem with the AI playing Lurker and may have similiar reasons (one of both 'modes' not doable).
        Workaround: none.
        exists in 1.3.14: #15260318 as webnesto. The AI will play Graverobber, but then not proceed to do anything."

Dominion FAQ / Re: Upgrading to Silver or Gold?
« on: August 29, 2019, 11:44:46 am »
Another reason to trash Copper over Silver is if you only have a few non gold treasures remaining.

GGGSC to GGGSS vs  GGGSC to GGGGC

This way on the next shuffle you have less chance of drawing Mine without a target.

Dominion Online at Shuffle iT / Re: Possible Lighthouse glitch

My best guess is confusion with the reaction on Diplomat.
When Lighthouse "Blocks" an attack, you still get to trigger your reactions.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Taking Notes - Against the Rules?

IMO it is the difference "Dominion Online" vs "Dominion Real Life Simulator".

Dominion Online -- Dominion adapted to be a fun digital game.

Dominion RL Simulator -- See Table Top simulator

Some of the RL rules are to make the game more fun in RL.
If the rules need changing for digital play to make it possible or more fun, then change them.
I think that goal should not be "replicate RL play as closely as possible", but rather "create a fun digital game".

Loaded game seems fine to me.
I don't think you ever had cards in hand to trash?
Do you have a turn number for where you think it didn't work correctly?

Rules Questions / Re: Capitalism and Black Market
« on: November 15, 2018, 11:55:36 am »
Would it be worth thinking about changing Black Market?
So that it allows you to pay off debt?
I think a lot of players expect to be able to.

About that expectation of players: Are you talking about a 'normal' Black Market in the Action phase or specifically about a Black Market in the buy phase?

For the buy phase Black Market I'd agree, based on the current online implementation and the fact that repaying debt 'too early' had no real benefit before; but that has changed with Renaissance.

I mean on all plays of Black Market, in any phase.
You get to:
Play treasures
Repay Debt
Buy up to 1 of 3 revealed cards

Graverobber is a known bug for the AI.
Doesn't happen often, as it doesn't usually buy it.
Usually happens when it gets passed one with Masq.
In this case it was a Black Market buy.

You can use the load game feature.
But the have the same random seed.

You can copy paste a comma separated list into the kingdom card selector.

Try private tab, or incognito mode.
Then "kick and resign".

I think you need to draw lots of cards with Den of Sin if you want to buy Dominate.

17
The interface for ambassador can be confusing.
If you only have one card in hand it auto selects it.
So you then click on it and return, when what you mean to do is reveal, but not return.

You are only forced to reveal a card with amb, the return bit is optional.

What do you do in real life if someone plays village, draws, then realises they forgot to call ratcatcher to trash curse from hand?
It is an information undo, but I would expect most home players to allow an undo.

In most normal situations, I (and the people I play with) wouldn't allow that sort of undo... the person has seen a new card; the general case is that that new card could have given them information they used to decide to call Ratcatcher... even if they weren't basing the decision on that new card; the person should understand that they can't really "know" for sure that the decision wasn't influenced. We would allow it if it's a new player learning the game or something like that.

Interesting. My play group found those sort of strict rules slowed down the game too much. We find it more fun to play fast and be generous with undos.

The test we use is not: ""know" for sure that the decision wasn't influenced".
It is: Does the group as a whole have more fun is we allow this undo.

19
I don't generally play online, but my policy would be the same policy I use in any real life game of any board game... allow undos as long as no new information has been revealed. And honestly, I feel like the software should enforce this... automatically allow undo without needing to request it in those cases, and don't ever allow it in other cases.

My guess is that it is harder than it looks for a computer to identify no new information undos.
How about the case of known (but forgotten) cards in deck vs Wishing Well.

What do you do in real life if someone plays village, draws, then realises they forgot to call ratcatcher to trash curse from hand?
It is an information undo, but I would expect most home players to allow an undo.

An alternative might be to feature more of the regular season games.
Pick a "game of the week" to make a big deal out of and provide commentary.
