Well, I think they didnt really grasp Wihing Well's power, they decided to ignore the fact that a single one already gives unlimited options.

No, he specifically said they were going to be conservative and limit it to the cards on the table. These guys do raise a lot of good points though, it's now clear to me I've been overbuying Torturer.

I'm probably not as big an NBA fan as I once was, but playoffs mean a new season of Game of Zones, so that makes me happy.

Dominion General Discussion / A quick Temple tip
« on: April 17, 2018, 03:48:09 am »
1. Temple scores a point when you play it
2. If you are down by 6 with 1 province left, you can play a temple, then play 8 coins to buy the last province and win.

That is all.

Actually being serious for a second, after 1000's of games I've discovered two major bugs in dominion.

BUG 1: The starting player has a huge advantage. In roughly 100% of the games I've lost as player 2 have been because my opponent got an extra turn than me. When both player's skill is similar this happens too often.

BUG 2: More often than in most games, the more games I play the more I've found that, when two player's skill are equal, the game comes down to good strategy and tactical play much less. After 100's of games, I think it's more down to luck.

Because a lot of people aren't going to get the joke:

In the rule book it says that the type curse means it is worth negative points
Well, no, the rule book says that "These are bad cards worth -1". It also says that Curse cards are base cards that are always included in the supply. If you want your cards to behave differently, you need to explain how (like how the rules for Dark Ages explain about replacing starting Estates with Shelters), and how they interact with cards that already reference Curses since you've now created a distinction that leads to rule questions and you didn't initially explain how to resolve them.

Gendo, I salute you for still having the patience to critique these batches of fan cards. Well done!

Finally someone likes my expansion
That's ... not what he said. At all.

Also, please go back and read rinkwork's guide.

Maybe that's not what he said but it wasn't crap like everybody else has been giving me

When people post here, the unspoken rule is that all criticism and feedback is allowed and encouraged. Many have shown off their cards here, and the responses always range from "This needs work" to "Good start, but this needs work". So while your cards could definitely use improvement, you're not alone - nobody ever gets an immediate "Awesome! Good to go!" no matter how good the cards are. Those who are too lazy and/or don't want to be criticized very rarely post here (Like me  :D) Read here for more info.

You should be grateful that Gendo took the time to read and give you advice on all of your cards - lots of people wouldn't bother. Read it, consider it, and try to incorporate some of the suggestions.

Also by the way: don't name a card "Terrorist". I hope I don't need to give too many reasons.

Plus 3 of the only 5 “just Smithys” on a board is huge...

But then your paying one extra for a smithy! That is a RIP OFF!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh boy. You've got a lot of learning ahead of you.

Did I miss some new forum rule by which only nonsense threads may be started from now on?

But this one's in general discussion, so it can't be locked.

Graverobber gets my vote. I get that it doesn't help build the engine great and can be clunky to fit in since it doesn't give +action or +cards, but it ends up being solid endgame payload that also can regenerate its fodder if needed. Like, if people are fine with remodeling Golds into Provinces, then Graverobbing 5's isn't much different. Or use it to turn weakish engine components into strong ones. At the very least, 95/111 is absolutely too low.

Champion + Tormentor

"After I play Champion, I'll be able to play Tormentor first every turn and get all the Imps I want!"


Bonfire to the rescue!

Seems thematic enough ŕ la Joan of Arc.

Therem's last turn in game 2, Spice Merchant for +buy wins it.

Sacrifice + Rats

It's been pointed out before, but in my match vs jonts, I passed over both Ambassador and Masquerade for it to see what happens. The answer is: insanely fast cycling that doesn't draw things dead.

Tracker > Bard

Considering some of the Boons gain Gold, Silver, or Will-O-Wisps (basically Laboratories in the early game), Tracker's topdecking ability is way more valuable to me than $1 extra from Bard.

Considering some of the cards in the game cost €5, the extra €1 from Bard is way more valuable than the topdecking.

I feel like Bard is somewhat effective in money strategies, making it better for hitting Province later in the game. Tracker is more of a utility card for engines that you pick up on a spare buy.

Bard/BM is probably okay, but I think its main utility is definitely that it's very good at hitting €5 after the first reshuffle. I agree with your characterization of Tracker.

Another card whose main utility is that it's very good at getting you $5 cards after the first reshuffle is Feast.

Hi everybody; good luck to you all!

Next week is not happening for me, but the next 3 weeks after should be very free, so shoot me a message and I'll be able to find some time.

Have fun!

With Scout gone, we need a new thread devoted to wins depending on Annex...

And I have one! A slog board, no trashing and yes Familiar. I got a Fortune while my opponent just went for Provinces. I was playing from behind, then I decided I wanted to see my Fortune again soon, so I Annexed to get it back in my deck. Managed to put together a solid enough turn to get the win.

After one League Match with them:

Bard seems really bad. I'm not even sure it passes the Silver test.

On the other hand, Silver/terminalSilver + Night Watchman on a 4/3 guarantees a $6 on turn 3, which is really nice (I still lost that game).

Why are you guys trash talking them so much? They clearly know some advanced strategy, since chainmail guy bought a Villa (because how else would you play an Action card after Treasures).

For the last "Don't", I feel that sometimes, it's faster to play some cards to be sure you have sufficient resources to win than it is to carefully count your hand to see if it's exactly enough for a 1 point victory. But really good overall, and it would be nice to see more players of all skill levels follow that point in particular; same as in sports, chess, etc, when the game's over, it's classy to end it quick  :)

Good idea overall.

Hexes and Boons definitely should get their list.

Ranking Starting cards is kinda funny, but in all honesty kinda wonky the way you put it. We all know which Shelter is #1. Ranking Heirlooms is funny, even though their position should be weighed in ranking their Kingdom cards.

Non-supply cards ranking is probably too messy to be any good.

We should make a list for Castles though. They were probably too hard to understand for last years ranking.

I second all of this
