Dominion General Discussion / Re: New German Promo 'Abbruch'

Quote from: The Secret History of the Dominion Promos
Altenburger also wanted the world champion for this coming year to get to make a card. We said no! We are willing to put their face on a card, that is as far as we will go. However, as it happens, Adam is the current world champion. So a world champion did get to design a card.

So Dismantle is AdamH reading the "Neat and potentially useful card interactions" thread?

Fun fact: Chairs first post was made to correct a post of mine - although as it turned out IIRC I was correct anyway, or at least his correction also needed further correction. I'm somewhat confident therefore that Chairs named himself because of me.

Actually as far as I can tell his first two posts were to /in for Mafia games, although this is relevant:

do you know Tables? :P

No, but that name -was- the inspiration for my own.  I was reading the guild preview, saw his username, and decided if we had tables we must need chairs.

I just realized that we have both chairs and tables on f.ds!

Wow. How long have you been here?

Both players have no economy/gainers/etc and the Coppers and Curses have run out.

The temptation to click on the STAR WARS thread is strong.

There aren't any blatant spoilers there that aren't blacked out... but man will that stay true before I get to watch the movie!

I feel like once I'm there the temptation to hover the blacked out spoilers will overcome me.

This is stronger then it looks, I promise! It's really quite flexible, although it's still not that strong maybe it should give +2 actions when you discard.

I actually think it looks very strong when you have Victory cards; Lab + Fugitive is a pretty good deal, with some flexibility to boot.

Yeah of course they're Durations so you count both turns. So having 4 and playing 2 per turn means +8 Cards every turn. Playing 3 per turn means +18 Cards (if counted at start of turn).

Beginning of next turn. No way it's playable otherwise, I don't think.

I'm not sure I agree.

Is the number of Kontors you have in play counted when you play each one or at the beginning of next turn?

Also you give me too much credit, moving Ice tokens around like that was not something I had thought of, I might have to steal that idea!

Go ahead! I guess the next step would be giving them to or stealing them from the other players, although the risk with that would be that it would devolve into Ice token tennis or that you'd be able to keep your opponents' cards perpetually frozen.

Also I just realised you are not ashersky (Shanty Town avatar). I was surprised to see him post Dominion-related content.

I guess a vaguely important point here is that when you reveal a card, you are not revealing it to the other player/s, or interacting with them at all, you're adding the identity of that card to the set of public information, which is by definition available to all players at all times.

16
Online, if you Moat an Ambassador, and no copies are returned, you don't see what is revealed.

I was going to make a bug thread, but then I realized there's a left field interpretation of the rules where that is correct???  Maybe???
"Reveal a card from your hand" is how Ambassador starts. You reveal a card!

Maybe there is an argument to be made that, because of moat, you are unaffected by the attack, and having the card revealed to you is an effect of the attack.

I think it's a bad argument, though.

By that bad argument, once you've Moated you have to close your eyes (and block your ears if the Attacker is announcing their actions) so the Attack can't affect you by making you witness what it does.

I think Venturer is super cheap with any kind of support to help with the Coppers. Especially if you can combo it with Frozen Cache/Cold Storage etc. Maybe not too cheap, I don't know. But really cheap.

Huh, I somehow didn't realise that Venturer thaws its own Coppers. That makes it a lot weaker than I thought. Probably fine at $2.

I also really like the Ice tokens.

I think Venturer is super cheap with any kind of support to help with the Coppers. Especially if you can combo it with Frozen Cache/Cold Storage etc. Maybe not too cheap, I don't know. But really cheap.

Question: when you gain Venturer, do you put 5 tokens on a pile of 3 Coppers, or a total of 15 Coppers, 5 on each? I suspect the latter, since the former seems inconsistent with "remove 1 Ice token from each card". If the latter, Venturer should probably read "5 Ice tokens on each".

Here's an idea:


Ice Mage - $4 - Action

+1 Card
+1 Action
Move an Ice token from one of your cards set aside with Ice tokens to another.
-----
When you gain this, gain a Copper and a Gold and set them aside with 5 Ice tokens on each.


I'm sure you've had similar ideas, but I think it's interesting.

How are we counting "a game of Dominion"? Does it count if somebody resigned or quit? Does it count if you played against bots? Does it count if you proxied fan cards/custom rules? Does it count if you accidentally played the wrong rules? What if it was a playtesting session for a set? Food for thought.

I think the only one of these that would have any appreciable effect on the result is the question on bots. I tend to think those should count.

What about games with only bots, including the 1000s of games played each time a simulation is run?

20
Here's another vaguely related question: How many games will continue until the heat death of the universe? How long until the total time of these games is more than the total time of all other games?

... the kingdom is, I mean.

Silver is not a kingdom card. Do you mean the supply? Do you have any Ambassadors? Are there Silvers in the trash - what about Graverobber or Rogue?

I don't understand the confusion?

RGG now expects stores to get copies Thursday or Friday (Nov 16-17), depending on where they are in the country. There won't be a "street date," they will just be allowed to sell them when they get them in.

That would be the announcement I missed. Thanks! :)

Thursdays release will have Nocturne fully implemented

Does this mean what I think it means?

Is Thursday's release ambiguous?

There are lots of Thursdays. I guess I was just surprised to see something more concrete for the release (physical or online) than "probably some time in November".
