Dominion Online at Shuffle iT / Re: The Dominion online 2017 thread

I second these questions, and esp the ban list point - I HATED when people quitted games because they were losing, or they were unhappy that I was lucky enough to get a 5 copper hand (seriously, people resigned over that), and Ipersonally would choose to avoid playing those players again.

I don't understand this. Quitting a game that you are losing is the respectable thing to do. I have never "ragequit", per se, but if you play enough games you can tell when the game is out of reach. Resigning allows you to have a rematch with your opponent faster, or to play other people faster.

Sorry if this has been answered already. The email I had used to make my account is no longer active; it was from my high school. Is there any way I can continue to play Dominion?

You know I actually had the thought of "does this belong in General Discussion?" before posting this here, and then I thought "nah, it's about Dominion! Of course it belongs in Dominion General Discussion.

What I've learned is that I should never underestimate F.DS's ability to take a thread about Dominion and turn it into a thread about as many different non-Dominion things as possible. It's a truly amazing skill we have here.

I asked my wife if this thread is everything she wanted, she said yes but I think she was just saying that to get me to shut up. She saw the thread before all of the pictures of moths were posted, though, so I don't think she'll want to see the updates.

Oh yeah, and this:

they're dad to her

Yeah, my father has a hard time staying out of my personal space too.

It took me a while to realize why this post had so many upvotes then I realized I typed "dad" instead of "dead." This was actually done on purpose, I'm not sure anyone reading this thread knows the reference I was making. Anyone?

There you have it, amother thread derailed.

Goko Dominion Online / Is anyone else having this problem?
« on: December 03, 2015, 09:45:05 pm »
So this is getting pretty frustrating. I've gotten this message about 5 times in the last 8 games. It has always come on the last turn, right as I bought out the last province or the third pile. I'm not even sure if it's counting it as a win or not. Anyone else seeing this message? Is it something with my computer/browser or is it something with the site? Let me know what you guys think.

Who told you that you can reveal a reaction card multiple times, in response to the same event?

I have one: Buying Estates to trash a turn 1/2 Hovel... Generally not a good play IMO. I'd say 4 out of 5 times you are better off without the estate.

What did the hippie say when I asked him to get off my couch? Namaste.

Can someone explain this joke from page 1?

Pretty high, if you use the preset kingdoms.

So in other words, basically 100% after the first 2 games of playing the "First Game"? Dang I had no clue haha

I suppose I should add that you are picking a set of 10 from a set of 180 or however many kingdom cards there are. I guess you could throw in YW's bane card but I'm guessing it's negligible.

Dominion General Discussion / "Odds" question
« on: August 17, 2015, 04:10:49 pm »
If I have played 5000 games with all the cards (not counting Adventures), what are the odds that I have played the same kingdom twice?

I think for starters, I should try to recall how many kingdom cards there are altogether (not counting Adventures).

As an added bonus, at what point (after how many games) does it become a 50% chance that I have played 2 games with an identical setup?

Duke blows

Duke is an awesome card.
it was a joke based on my avatar. You see, my avatar is a duke, so presumably, I am fond of duke (I am).
I figured it would be humorous if I feigned dislike of duke while my avatar indicated quite the contrary. Based on the number of upvotes I got, I was wrong.

Dukedom good didn't you

Check out this back and forth battle. It was a case of PPR to the max. I was lagging behind him the whole time, trying to keep up with him.

Chancellor isn't weak.  Insta-shuffle is a thumbs up in my book.  It's just that it's weak relative to other $3 terminals.
I wouldn't even say that. I think it's fairly average compared to most $3 terminals (there really aren't many). The problem is it doesn't measure up to any other terminals - it's not the cost that's the issue, it's the fact it has to compete with all possible terminals. That's why most $2 are cantrip-like.

Would Chancellor be decent (almost too good maybe?) if it had a +Action?

At $?! Yeah, it would! That's like a Silver that can discard with little downside limited to edge cases.

Like Smithy and Witch?
