I like the incredible Balance. I play a lot of other games, and Dominion is amazingly well-balanced. Yeah, some cards are better then others, but no strictly-worse cards.

My goal is to get at least 1 of these. Obviously they won't all follow the horror theme.

Thank you! Any tips for where to start on here for a new forum user?

Welcome to the forums! If you haven't already, the card articles section is pretty great.

Sometimes it can be fun to create a kingdom with an obvious strategy, and then a second, less obvious one. Then see which one is better.

When you consider "throne", "king", "crown", "disciple", "procession", "chapel", "bonfire", "farmland", "ironworks", "workshop", and "alms" to be verbs.

When you internally groan when hearing about a country Rebuilding after a disaster.

New verbs are really among the best reasons to start Dominion.

Hey, I've had this idea for years and never see it in an expansion...

EXECUTIONER

Cost : 9

Action, Attack

"Each opponent reveals their hand and must trash one card of your choosing."



Cool, yeah?  Expensive, terminal, and ugly.  :)  Putting it at an above-province cost makes for a hard choice, I think, as when you get to province buying levels, what boards would support a terminal card this aggressive?  And what if you hit this with a king's court?!  Moats and reactions are suddenly immensely more valuable, as are fast strategies to keep opponents from buying this card (and shuffling it through their deck to be played).

I have to agree with Theta. This doesn't really work for everything already mentioned. Warrior and Knight are already kinda hated, this would be a million times worse.

Welcome to the forums!

Really good article Titandrake! I feel like this really gets at the essence of basic Dominion strategy. A invaluable read!

I think they are both deceptively good. I actually rank Cartographer higher because of how effortlessly it combos, especially with some seriously strong cards (Cartographer/Scrying Pool is brutal).

Forum is definitely better, because you get the benefit immediately. With Cartographer, you have to wait until you draw those cards before you get the benefit.

True, but isn't a lot of Dominion about delayed gratification? Setting your next hand is a really strong effect, worth about .

How did you arrive at that cost?

Not disagreeing, but genuinely curious.

The first comparison that comes to mind is Scouting Party. Granted, event costs aren't directly applicable to card costs, and Scouting Party is weaker, but it only costs . Is Cartographer's effect that much better?

I figured since Cartographer is a cantrip with the effect, and a cantrip is basically free, the sorting should be worth or .

It is also quite a bit better then Scouting Party. Apart from the fact that it is more flexible, it sorts during your Action phase, making it invaluable for combo setup.

This is the card picker I use: http://inprogressgaming.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/dominion_picker140.html
I find it to be far and away the best. Play around with this a bit and see if you get something cool.

I often violate the Penultimate Province Rule because I think my opponent probably doesn't have 8 and I don't want to play through a dragged-out, increasingly sloggish game. I usually regret this.

Death or Glory!

Is it considered rude when people leave the table immediately after I win without saying gg? It always seems a bit rude to me.

Whenever I play against my wife, I feel really guilty when I put together a big turn. I don't she means to make me feel bad, but it happens. Doesn't usually stop me though.

Reminds me of a 4-player game where no one was paying attention through my long turns. I basically had to say "hey guys, pay attention this time" because I was going to do a bunch of Upgrade tricks and end the game (and no one else realized we were even close to that point yet).
I hate it when nobody pays attention.  Sucks the fun out of the game.

My dad asserts Scrying Pool turns aren't half bad if you bring along a book.

I used to never buy Sentry, but it is actually kinda good. Trashing from the top of your deck does not keep you from buying cards on a turn you trash, and sifting is handy at a point in the game where many trashers become obsolete.

Edit: 1000th post.

It will be a normal size expansion.

It will contain cards.

At least one of the cards will have the word "Action" on it.

Most of the cards will have "Dominion" on the reverse.

Not if the a future Dominion expansion uses dice!

It will likewise contain meeples, a spinner and monopoly money.

Each of us only had one Sea Hag.

Ah yes, the Sea Hag Knock-out.

I think you have a lot of good points here. "Depends on the Kingdom" plus all the edgecases leads to really useless advice. When some new player asks a specific question, they don't want to hear about the one crazy time where the advice you gave them is not useful.

glhf is fine, why do people complain about glhf? They can't all be the best salutation ever.

This thread has one of the highest respect/post ratios on f.ds.
So I should post here to get more respect. Right?

You'd think so, wouldn't you?

25
Because it's polite?  Because it's good sportsmanship?  Because playing a good game is more important than winning?  Because you can cheer on your opponent if they're playing better than you are?  Because you're not a spiteful, narcissistic asshole that wallows in their own filth demanding that they win everything?

I mean, I dunno.

This.
