Variants and Fan Cards / Re: ALCHEMY 2
« on: July 27, 2020, 02:04:26 pm »
I have tested very carefully new alchemy cards starting with principality and county.

No offense, but if I remember correctly from the German forum, you test your fan cards with your wife. I believe you, when you say you two have a great time. And that's nice.

But other people have another level of experience. People who played many 1000 games online. They might have a different point of view based on many years of playing Dominion.

And another thing: When posting cards on a board like this, you have to accept that people judge your cards based on what's established in the game already. If you make up your own rules like adding two new base cards, that's totally fine, but most people here want to play according to 'Donald's rules' and thus be able to mix and match everything.

I didn't even get Archive and Triumphal Arch ...  :o

How about discarding cards during another player's Clean up phase?

This already existed... call a Coin of the Realm right after playing Caravan Guard on an opponent's turn, or call Duplicate after gaining a card on an opponent's turn.

Yes. Somebody pointed that out earlier. It probably never happened in my IRL games, therefore it didn't occur to me.

Note that you can now put the +Buy token on the Estate pile using Seaway.

I think you can't - the Estate pile is still not an Action card pile.

Seaway doesn't check the pile type, you just have to gain an Action card from the pile.

Oh, right, I misremembered Seaway's wording.

Rules Questions / Re: Reserve cards + Necromancer
« on: December 09, 2018, 11:51:16 am »
Quote from: Necromancer
Play a face up, non-Duration Action card from the trash, leaving it there and turning it face down for the turn.

No that phrase only stops the card from being moved into play. What stops the card from moving itself is apparently that it has already Lost Track of itself due to being played from an unexpected location.

Necromancer stops the played card from being moved to "in play," and that's all it stops. However! A card that for example trashes itself from play is looking for itself in play, and won't move itself if it's not there.

As the quote you quote says, it's not because it's being played from an unexpected location; it's because it wasn't moved into the play area when that happened. Vassal e.g. plays cards from an unexpected location too, but since it plays them to the play area no losing-track occurs.
Ah, thanks for that quote. Makes sense this way.

Shouldn't Treason say "Victory card" instead of "Action card"?

Is this a theme or machanic inquiry?

Your image in the German forum said "Punktekarte" and I assumed that was the right version. Otherwise the 4th player would have a huge disadvantage in the first round, wouldn't he?

EDIT: Oh, nevermind. I read the card wrong. In this case, the Action version probably is the more interesting one.

Refinery should be a Duration card.
ABC, Buy phase comes after the Action phase.

Capitalism...

Rules Questions / Re: Is '$3, $4, $5 or $6' the same as '$3 to $6'?
« on: November 17, 2018, 09:21:55 am »
Well, those are all the integer price points from $3 to $6, and we don't have fractions of coins.

...yet.

But can '$3 to $6' include debt and/or potion costs?

No.

Citadel + King's Court is just crazy.

Finally, a Treasure Chest expansion!

15
Is Acting Troupe actually playable online at the moment? In all my games I got either Recruiter or Sculptor.

EDIT: Ah, finally, in my 15th game or so. :)

16
There are, however, some Nocturne cards which have different names in the recently published German physical edition. It would be nice if the online cards in question could be renamed.

17
I hope for more bald people in the artwork.

Wasn't it that they accidentally neglected including it in the 2nd edition copies? If that's true, it's more of a "fix" than it is a promo. (similar to English Pathfinding, but a worse mistake)
No, but the cards in the German Upgrade pack (Base+Intrigue combined) didn't fit onto one printing sheet, so they had to produce one card extra and decided to give it away as a promo card.

In a game with 8+ heirlooms, which do you use?  :P

Which is why I would have translated it as "Teufelswerk". It's a pun.

Nice one.

The English version is called Dismantle

Wow, I didn't expect to guess the right name.

Dismantle
Trash a card from your hand. If it costs 1$ or more, gain a cheaper card and a Gold.


The German publisher just revealed this card. It will be in spielbox magazine in November. I don't know about the English one (and my translation of the title is a pure guess).

Simon Jannerland and Simon Samuelson are the same person.

The app is great, thank you!

Did you consider adding other languages? I would be glad to do a German translation.

One feature request: It would be quite nice if I could select any propability for Colony/Shelters rather than only 50 percent. Otherwise the app is just perfect for me.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: German translation
« on: February 05, 2016, 12:41:12 pm »
Mainly I want to adress the German forum members who support Altenberger with the translation. I thought they might be more open for a discussion (as they know about Donald's effort tfor the visibility of women) than the publisher. My suggestion is to use female job titles when there's a woman in the picture.

We suggested some changes to Altenburger, but there wasn't much we could do about card names; they wanted to stick with their choices.
