Oh no, what have I done?

Rules Questions / Re: Poacher question
« on: September 17, 2017, 02:51:16 pm »
It is meant usually as a disadvantage. The longer the game goes, the weaker Poacher gets. That is the whole point of the card. If you have green cards to discard anyway, good for you, but you might not. So always be careful not to get too many. Like if you get 9 Poachers, your opponent might just grab the last one to make your 9 Poachers worse.

There are several scenarios where this might even help you though.
1.) Tunnel: You can discard it to gain a Gold
2.) Draw-to-X like Library, Watchtower and Jack of All Trades: These draw dependant on your hand size. So you can discard a bad card to hopefully draw a better card instead.
3.) Menagerie: You can discard duplicate cards to draw more with Menagerie

There might be even more scenarios, these 3 were the obvious ones to me. One thing you can also do is when you have drawn your deck and some good cards are unused like let's say 2 villages. Then you can use Poacher to discard 2 villages and play another card that draws one card to guarantee that you start next turn with one village.

Chancellor/Silver into a Big Money strategy that gets 1-2 Tributes if you hit $5.

While I agree that for new player they should for terminal draw with +3 cards, +2 cards terminal draw engines can be the right thing to do, mostly if both the draw card and the village can easily be gained, e.g. with a Workshop variant, or even only one of them. And of course you need trashing, but that should be obvious. Like for example if the opponent plays a BM variant with an attack, then building a Moat engine is quite a reasonable thing to do as you are save from his attack AND can attack him every turn with this specific attack as well.

Inb4 someone argues they are called villages and not splitters.

Variants and Fan Cards / Re: Asper's Cards

There are more. Spice Merchant, Sentry and Appentice notably, also Mercenary and Sacrifice, to lesser extent Amulet where you likely trash at the start of a turn and then with your other Amulet again as you will likely want to draw in between.

Do you put the -1 Card token there immediately and can it trigger more than once a turn? If yes, then this is pretty bad with let's say Rats or Upgrade as they remove the token and trigger again and over and over. Then I would suggest to either limit to once a turn or just let you put the -1 Card Token at the End of your Buy or the Start of your Cleanup Phase.

Dominion Articles / Re: Occasionally Relevent Rule Edge-Cases

Very handy summary. I'm pretty sure a few things could get added, like Mission+Outpost+Possession cases or Possession stuff in general which always confuses me.
Other suggestions: Tokens on Travellers, Throne Room variants on Durations, Black Market specialties (Travellers, Encampment, Young Witch, etc), Summon edge cases (Border Village, Death Cart) or when two cards want to go to different spots (Transmogrify into Nomad Camp, Armory a Villa)

Also I would add: "If you play Capital + 4 other Treasures that give at least $7, you can buy Mandarin + Province every turn until the Provinces or Mandarins run out." which matters especially in 3p games or if the opponent tries to deny.

In Germany, the "last" in the title is plural, sounds like bad news for you.

I don't think I tend to confuse cards that often.
But what might be worse, I often talk about a card while recording so much that I thought I already bought it, later wondering why it isn't in my deck.

I might be interested to play as this would mean I won't lose 0-6 against drsteelhammer again.

I think he means to seaway earlier and then buy Villa in that turn in question and play it.

It's about banning the union of the 5 most disliked f.ds puns from the forum.

Today, I played a game where I used Annex to gain debt to make my opponent's Possessions useless.

Oh my, not again one of these. Possession with Debt is the worst.

Last year 2nd edition cards weren't included because 1.) you couldn't play with them online and 2.) they got announced very short time before the rankings/ratings.
So I agree to include Nocturne.

I can organize it, no real work required, but I won't do nice presentations or write ups

Not sure if serious, but if yes, there are 2 second places.
