Dominion General Discussion / Revalation
« on: August 24, 2012, 01:01:38 am »
From the Dominion description:

"You are a monarch, like your parents before you, a ruler of a small pleasant kingdom of rivers and evergreens. Unlike your parents, however, you have hopes and dreams. You want a bigger and more pleasant kingdom, with more rivers and a wider variety of trees. You want a Dominion. In all directions lie fiefs, freeholds, and feodums. All are small bits of land, controlled by petty lords and verging on anarchy. You will bring civilization to these people, uniting them under your banner. But wait. It must be something in the air, several other monarchs have had the exact same idea. You must race to get as much of the unclaimed land as possible, fending them off along the way. To do this you will hire minions, construct buildings, spruce up your castle, and fill the coffers of your treasury. Your parents wouldn’t be proud, but your grandparents, would be delighted. "

So, from this, we've just seem foedums.  Petty lords = knights? or perhaps the players.  Minions, buildings, and treasuries have already been dealt with.  Rivers and evergreens as well as buildings = victory cards.  So, are fiefs and freeholds concepts/cards we may see in Guilds?  Were these cards lying under our noses all along?

Dominion Isotropic / Staying up or what?
« on: August 18, 2012, 02:20:35 am »
Seeing as we have no Goko, it seems fair to leave Isotropic up (and why not?).  Not only that, but there's bunches of Dark Ages copies out and we know Dark Ages is on iso, so can we see those too?

Shut it down when Goko actually comes online (still not ideal, but as long as we can play Dominion online, that seems fair).  Words from the powers that be?

Dark Ages Previews / Procession Interactions
« on: August 17, 2012, 02:39:44 pm »
Please help me figure out if these rule assumptions are correct:

I play Procession with Pillage.  Pillage attack happens and I gain 2 spoils.  I trash pillage.  Pillage happens again (like Feast) and I gain 2 additional spoils.  I gain an Action card costing $1 more.

I play Procession with Madman.  I get +2 Actions and return the card to the Madman pile, getting +1 Card for each card in my hand.  I get +2 Actions again (from the second play of the Madman), but no handsize bonus because I cannot return the card again.  I gain an action card costing $1 more.

I play Procession with Forager.  There is a Copper and Gold in the trash.  I trash a Copper and get +$2.  Forager happens again and I trash a Silver, getting +$3.  I trash Forager (due to Procession) and gain an action card costing $1 more.

Simulation / Dark Ages on Geronimoo's Dominion Simulator
« on: August 17, 2012, 03:17:19 am »
No rush Geronimoo (ok, just a little), but when will we start to see some cards in there?  I know a lot of them look like a pain to implement.

Feedback / Goko on Player Profiles
« on: August 16, 2012, 12:41:36 pm »
I imagine "Isotropic username:" should change to "Goko username" or something similar when it launches.

Goko Dominion Online / Conqueror Bot plays Golden Deck
« on: August 14, 2012, 08:41:50 pm »
And I got beat ... going to a golden deck myself.  Somehow it built up to a Colony golden deck by the same turn I was able to build a Province golden deck...  I've just been on auto pilot against the bot - perhaps I made a silly purchase somewhere.

Still, pretty cool.

Title says it all.  PM me for info - we're allowed to ship on August 18th, so as long as Jay gets us the games on time, which I'm sure he will, all is good!

We don't make much money off this - consider it more of a community service, seeing as it looks like we'll be getting it a bit earlier than everyone else.

*Free shipping within the USA, but we can do international as well.

Council Room Feedback / Number of Games Played Decreasing?
« on: July 09, 2012, 12:20:15 am »
I was looking at a player's profile and their stats for number of games played (the graph) shows over 4000 logged games dropping down to 0 - how does this happen?  On my own page, there's a small dip after May 8th which also looks odd, but it's not big at all.  Any idea?

Dominion Isotropic / Are Identical Start Games Ranked?
« on: July 05, 2012, 01:41:06 am »
Are [forced] identical start games ranked?

Dominion General Discussion / Should Chapel cost $3?
« on: July 04, 2012, 02:02:50 pm »
Why or why not?  Has this been discussed before?  It seems like it'd make many of the power 5/2 openings more balanced and have almost no other effect.

Dominion General Discussion / What expansion do you play best with?
« on: June 19, 2012, 03:00:37 pm »
Inspired by the "What card is worst for you?" thread.

I currently have an 8.98% favor for Intrigue, but play at -6.58% with Cornucopia, -5.96% with Base, and -3.66% with Prosperity.  My promo favor is an astounding 15.92%.  Hinterlands, Seaside, and Alchemy are 2.06%, 1.48%, and .78%.  It feels weird, because IRL I purchased the sets in the following order: Base, Prosperity, Cornucopia, Seaside, Alchemy, Hinterlands, Promos, albeit all within a fairly short time period of each other.  This is a mystery I just haven't been able to figure out.

What expansions do you play best with and why do you think that is?

Rules Questions / Discard Pile
« on: June 07, 2012, 08:26:13 pm »
I just checked the original rules which state that the discard pile is placed face up with the top card visible (which is also how I play IRL).  Why does isotropic not allow the top card of a discard pile to be visible?

Dominion General Discussion / Promo Card Release Schedule
« on: June 03, 2012, 07:34:35 pm »
Is there a list somewhere of when each promo card was released?  If not, does anyone know the order they were released in?

Much appreciated!

Introductions / Hi everyone!
« on: April 25, 2012, 01:59:22 am »
Just started playing Dominion a month or so ago.  Currently a level 20, but it seems to go up whenever I play so we'll see whereabouts I end up.

I'm excited to get competitive!  Looks like a fun time.
