Possession looks fun!

Yeah but unfortunately it seems thereís no way of determining what happens if you play possession while possessing someone so itís bound to cause issues.

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).

The more bothersome thing for me has always been the different shade of blue on the background.

Iím a big Raptors fan, even when they make me cry against Lebron

Poor raptors.  They're actually one of my top teams as well.  But man they just don't show up in the playoffs.

The end of game 1 was Raps v LeBron in a nutshell. Itís like they believe in their heart of hearts that they canít beat him and get the yips even when they should have the better team.

I don't follow soccer much, but I do look forward to once again cheering on the good old U.S. of A. I'm sure that a cursory Google search would tell me that they aren't favored by the "experts" to come out on top, but I'll prefer to remain hopeful.

Dominion Articles / Re: Villa Quarry: A PSA
« on: April 26, 2018, 10:25:26 am »
I had a game once where I got the cost of Villa down to 0, piledrove the Villas, and then used the $8 I'd thus generated to buy Pathfinding and put it on Villa.

Funnily enough, I did rather well in that game.

That is amazing

Yes! Iím a Celts fan specifically but I watch the entire league as well. I have also occasionally had to clear space on my phone when it has filled up with a backlog of NBA podcasts.

It was too bad you guys didn't get to see my man Hayward playing.  That injury was gnarly.

Yeah, I wrote off the whole season 5 minutes into the first game. I thought it was impressive how well they did without him, and then to see them with a good chance to win a playoff series without him or Kyrie is just ridiculous. I'm excited for next season if everyone is healthy. Tatum and Brown and even Rozier have been surprisingly awesome.

I don't watch NBA at all; but am always happy when I hear that the Celtics are doing well; so a quick Google search tells me that I'm happy! Cuzz, are you from Boston?

Iím from NE and lived in Boston for almost 10 years but have since moved to the Midwest.

Maybe we could just congratulate GendoIkari on his upcoming fatherhood instead of whatever the hell else is going on here.

Congrats, Gendo!

I'm a former semi-competitive magic player, and so I start by reasonable announcing:

"three, six, eight treasure, buy a province..."

and then because I want the winner to win by skill, not by forgetfulness I continue

"...5 provinces left"

I visibly count low piles too.

I try not to be obnoxious about it, and people don't seem to mind.

That's more or less the same thing I do, except I don't often Count piles. When I do, I announce the amount, though.

Huh, not sure Iíve ever seen Count pile. Could make sense with Obelisk I guess.

Shepherd + Tournament
Grab Followers, be happy about getting engine components instead of junk from it.

Okay but Shepherd/Tournament seems likely to lead to tough tactical decisions:

Hand is Shepherd, Estate, Province, Copper, Copper. Do you discard the Province or not?

Depends on the shuffle

Missed it by 10 days. I picked a terrible ever to not check this board.

Sauna/avanto is one that everybody skips a key factor of. They have an avanto but no sauna and then they can't play any more actions.
Really? My experience of online games with this pile is that they tend to end up in mirror matches where both players get at least two copies of each.

I mean...it's pretty clear this dude is trolling at this point, right?
Chase Adolphson is just very young.  Be nice, etc. etc.

arite, arite, sorry. thought maybe it was a Ken M type of situation

I dont think that the expansion would need to include all the necessary supporting pieces.  (another copy of Runes, Boons, etc etc).
Players would get to use the cards that match the expansions they already own - and then would be inspired to buy the missing expansions :)

I think this part is a non-starter. People won't want to buy an expansion with a bunch of cards they can't use.

It feels like this should be gained to your hand.

seems like it would compare better to summon that way

The speed runs of this game are crazy. The fact that there are these ways of moving through levels that you wouldnít find or use in an ordinary play through, but that they are somehow there by design and not a glitch is really interesting. They basically all look like a TAS run.

I think the grip strength element involves  ďmaintaining speedĒ to some degree though maybe thatís not what they mean.

I did think it was cool in the video above where the creator talks about the ďmultiple approachesĒ and making hard levels that arenít reduced to just a sequence of precise inputs. Thereís always a cushion even if it is very small.

By the way, this GDC talk by the game's lead dev is a really interesting watch: One of Celeste's many strong points is the excellent level design, and the talk gives a behind the scenes look at how they did it.

Nice, I'll have to check this out. I really enjoyed the Game Maker's Toolkit video about its Assist Mode specifically, which is how I learned about the game in the first place.

Made it to the end and heading back for B-sides now. I suck so I'm already at over 20 hours and 6k deaths, but as someone who plays like 3 games a year at the most I'm really impressed with just how much it's sucked me in.
