General Discussion / Re: 2018 FIFA World Cup
« on: Today at 10:05:51 am »
This has been the most miserable year for soccer in a long time.

I think the worst year for football (of recent years, that is) was 2010, when Qatar won the bid for WC host.

This year, no event I remember strikes me as particularly bad for football. Video ref'ing was introduced last year, and while I am critical of it I don't think it's the end of the world. My favourite club again failed to promote, but that's expected and another story.

A mediocre team (Real Madrid) again wins the Champions League because a bunch of "good" teams like Bayern Munich fail spectacularly to get their act together. In the WC, all the good teams are playing like garbage, the only top teams that are playing well are Spain and Ronaldo. Poland (my favorite) is probably getting eliminated.

Brazil over Germany in the final.

If the tournament was based on talent alone, France would win.

Has anyone played this game? I'm thinking about starting an Imperial or Scum fleet, and I'm looking for advice.

I hope this is the first thread someone finds on f.ds.

Now if only RGG would send free second edition Adventures to those who bought the first edition and are stuck with extra bendy cards.  :(

(This wasn't intended to be a criticism of RGG; I wouldn't actually expect them to do that. But it is annoying to play with those cards IRL).

This looks amazing! Nice to see a completed fan expansion.

Also where is the contest that McGarnacle was talking about

http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?board=32.0

That's fan card creation, not kingdom design. This is a kingdom design contest.


But that's for 2014. Where's the one for 2018

There hasn't been one.

People don't really care about kingdom design here, at least not as much as they used to.

Chase, may I suggest the f.ds extension for chrome and firefox? I makes the kingdoms a lot easier to read.

Also, I like your kingdoms, I wish more people played non-randomized sets of 10. We have some threads with thematic kingdoms, kingdom design contests, etc.

I think people are correct that the key is to realize that the trashing effect is not supposed to always be a drawback. Still, I think this card is weak, especially when it is so similar to Margrave.

Avatars say a lot about you as a person.

So what does my avatar say about me?

You have a Star Wars avatar on a Dominion forum. It shows you don't like to play by the rules. You are independent and creative.

What exactly are you trying to suggest about me?

Fortress is impossible to trash. You are a persistent and reliable person.

What would be really awesome is if there is coppersmith and cursed village, and then you buy a cursed village and get greed.

Whats Coppersmith?

Jester is really thematic. Always surprising, sometimes effective.

the thing is, vampire isn't a very good card at all. it should be in the bottom third.

Couldn't disagree more.  I ranked it first on my list.  It non-terminally gains s and attacks.  Is there some other you want on the board?  There's absolutely no reason why you shouldn't grab Vampire first.  The fact that you only get that every other play is a downside, but Bat is a decent trasher, and there's no reason not to get multiple Vampires.

I agree. Gaining 's is huge, especially when it also attacks. You also need to consider the fact that bat trashes, meaning that Vampire can do pretty much everything. I find that if you are drawing your whole deck, its nice to have 1 Bat and 1 Vampire so they just switch off every turn.

Her dress needs to be red, or at least not the same color as the background of the card.

I would probably buy countries villains performers and royal markets and then colonies. I usually build my deck a whole bunch and then buy 4 colonies every turn

Yes, you build your deck a whole bunch and then buy 4 Colonies at once. The problem is, you would lose to players who do not do that. All of your cards are based around the way you play. And thatís fine; those cards might be just fine if played by you. But you need to understand that if you actually want to win games of Dominion, then playing that way doesnít work.


Actually that strategy usually does work

I'm a bit confused here. What was your original intention in posting cards here if you refuse to except any of the advice or suggestions people give you?

Philosophers stone: your decks get pretty big, so this is a really good card.

Actually it's maybe the single worst card in Dominion, besides maybe Transmute.

Harvest begs to differ.

1. Cornucopia : My love for cornucopia is a bit irrationnal. But this little set is very solid. With the exception of tournament, I like every single card in it.

Even Harvest?

Harvest!

I don't get the harvest hate really. Mainly, it's a very fun card to play with because the money you'll get from it depends on your deck building. It's a predictable random parameter and I like that.
I know that terminal money is very situationnal, but with some tricks you can make very clever uses of Harvest, discarding the crap out of the top of your deck.
It happens often that you have no cards to discard, but in this case, you just don't buy Harvest so this doesn't impact my whole appreciation of the card.
Yes, it's a weak card, but there is nothing wrong about that. However, it's no way as weak as transmute.

Harvest is really good for getting coins but the reason I hate it is because you have to discard the cards

Well, its good for getting coins if you like getting + out of a action. Even when you get , its still not great. Harvest sucks, which is too bad because the art and the idea are cool.

Good Article! I also like the idea of just a few paragraphs on a card if, like me, you don't want to sit through a few pages on a card. I'll see if I can right some of these myself.

Didn't realize he was trolling till the Moat part.

I feel like Seaway is pretty great. +Buy is one of those things I seem to wish I had more often.

Dominion General Discussion / Margrave vs Tragic Hero
« on: January 01, 2018, 09:27:54 pm »
Is it me, or is Tragic Hero way worse than Margrave? Margrave's attack is good, which Tragic Hero's extra effect is more neutral; I see when it helps, but it hurts perhaps more often.
