Dominion General Discussion / Re: Interview with Donald X.
« on: November 19, 2017, 12:21:11 pm »
Is there a functional reason why Wish is not a Spirit or is it mostly to be thematic?

Exorcist?

Right, that’s exactly my question, like is is specifically important for exorcist not to be able to gain it? There are these four non supply cards that you can get via other stuff, and three of them are grouped together as the ones you can get with exorcist, and I was just wondering if there was an interesting reason for that. (I know Bat is similar too but that clearly has a specific relationship just with Vampire)

This all makes sense for Bard, but then it seems kinda funny that it costs $4 while Tracker can cost $2.

I mostly just don't get why we have both Tracker and Bard in the set. Have there ever been two cards with such similar effect in the same expansion?
Are you saying that the ability to put cards on your deck is really similar to nothing?

I don't think I am, but maybe I should have said "on-play effect"

No one saw Jack of all Trades, Rebuild or Ill Gotten Gains as single card strategies when they first came out. They were first thought to be weak, neutral and useless, respectively, IIRC.

And then it swung to, these are OP single card strategies that are impossible to counter when they are out and are ruining Dominion.

How many times has Dominion been ruined now? I've lost track.

Dominion itself can't get ruined by specific cards. Games with specific cards can well be.
Nah man, ever since Silver it's just been downhill all the way.

The Silver Test: If your copy of the game came with Silvers, return it for a refund.

Other Games / Re: Cookie Clicker?

Yeah I think I basically tried the things they suggest. The people who were stuck there had trillions of drifters; I had far far more than that. I ended up using the Javascript hacking solution; just to set my number of probes back to where it was before I lost them all.
Yeah I think it's legit to sometimes use console cheats, since the game has some issues like that. In my playthrough, I had a problem with misallocation of processors vs memory that I fixed with a console cheat, although I realized later that it probably would have been possible to fix it legitimately.

Yeah you’re screwed if you get > 30 processors before the end of stage 1.

I'm currently putting an article together about self-synergy and I'll probably ignore everything in this thread.

You'll miss nothing by doing that.

I remember after a week or so when Cookie Clicker first came out I finally had an existential panic about what I was doing with my life and had to do a sudden scorched-earth cache-clear to break the spell.

"What do we got?"

"An idea."

"What idea?"

"An idea for the thread."

"I still don't know what the idea is."

"It's about nothing."

"Right."

"Everybody's doing something, we'll do nothing."

"So, we go into f.DS, we tell them we've got an idea for a thread about nothing."

"Exactly."

"They say, 'What's your thread about?' I say, 'Nothing.'"

"There you go."

(A moment passes)

(Nodding) "I think you may have something there."

Lurker + Squire

I think only Rebuild got this sort of language applied to it. The advice with the other two was that it was strong, but that there were better things to do depending on the kingdom, and that you had to be on the lookout for them. For Rebuild, the usual piece of advice was (is?) just to mirror.

I was thinking about this post http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=1338.msg21617#msg21617

How often do people say 'gg' to (primarily) literally mean that it was a good game? To me, it's equivalent to shaking hands after a face-to-face game.

It's the equivalent of saying "good" when someone asks you how your day is going. It's the automatic polite thing to do regardless of whether it's true or not.

it does look like 8 7 for 8 on people currently engaged in academia, though. apparently Skies is a poker player

gamesou is 36 and posted a link to a graduate level textbook he just published, so I'm doubting that he is a student as well

I like Theory's idea. Simply put, there are so many cards now, we need a faster more efficient way to rank cards, especially if we are going to try and get a strong voting population.

I like theory's idea a lot. It seems pretty fun and efficient, and doesn't require a huge commitment from any individual. I think it also requires a little more thoughtfulness than just 2 cards at a time.

Yeah, I don't think a kingdom card should get more points just because it has a powerful Heirloom. You should take synergy/anti-synergy with the Heirloom into account when making your own rankings though, since it's guaranteed to be present every time.

It absolutely should get more points for a powerful Heirloom. That’s supplied with the card every time, and a consequence of the card’s presence in the kingdom. The same way Baker is made better by giving you a free Coin token. I don’t think the model some people use of “how good is it to buy this card” as a proxy for total strength is really the full picture of a card’s strength anymore. I think “how much stronger is the average kingdom given the inclusion of this card” is a lot more powerful of a metric.

Look at Events. Events that you only buy once or never, for a marginal effect at the time, can have a huge impact on how the board is played, and we don’t say the event is “weak” just because it’s influence isn’t explicitly borne out in every game it’s present in.

Do people actually take the extra coin token into account when evaluating the strength of Baker? That seems really odd to me. It has nothing to do with your decision whether to buy the card or not.

21
I really like the Werewolf art (for the official card). That dude's chill right now, but you know he's gonna start some trouble when night falls.

Actually, all the art for this batch of promos is pretty great.

Yeah this art is my favorite so far, and I think the cards are as well.

Seems funny that Blessed village lets you save the boon for next turn and idol doesn’t.

24
So if Druid and eg Blessed village are out, then the Boon pile for Blessed village only has 9 and it can’t access the set aside ones?

Like imagine if there was some kind of non-terminal Action that would sift through the top of your deck and draw all the Victory cards into your hand

Would have to cost $8 at least and then it competes with Province. Should probably check this thread before you post these things: http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=699.0
