Dominion Isotropic / Thanks everyone
« on: July 24, 2011, 10:51:24 pm »
At least those of you who try to behave like adults.

Between me basically hitting my skill ceiling, and then steadily and quickly declining over the last 2 weeks, which is more frustrating than fun for me.  And then the kicker - today getting told "You Suck!" after getting beat (in a pretty close game), I think I'm done.

It was fun up until recently, now I just end up angry every time I log off.

I'll miss many of you...thanks for the games.

Dominion Isotropic / Frustrated
« on: July 20, 2011, 11:27:03 am »
I wish I could figure out what my problem is..  The last 4 days I've consistently lost to pretty much everyone.  Level 0 or level 40 doesn't seem to matter.  I've dropped from 25 to 21, and lost to several low level players this morning, so I'm sure I'll be 20 or 19 by tomorrow...

I'm not frustrated because I'm losing, that happens...  what's frustrating is that I can't figure out a good reason *why*.  Obviously I've changed something about the way I'm playing for the worse, I just can't pinpoint what it is.

Dominion Articles / Combo: Hamlet / Watchtower or Library
« on: June 21, 2011, 04:34:08 pm »
This might be one of the more obvious combos that there is (It has to be!  I stumbled on it without being told about it or watching someone do it first.), but I havenít seen anybody mention it, so I figured I would.

Itís interaction is immediately apparent.  Hamlet lets you discard up to two (hopefully green, purple, or low value coin) from your hand, while providing you with useful +actions and +buys.  Then Watchtower fills your hand back up.

Basically you trim your hand down to only the cards you really want, plus a watchtower or Library, and repeat, until you either donít draw any more hamlets to discard the junk, or watchtowers/libraries to refill.    If youíre running a deck with +$ cards, itís sometimes possible to play them & discard down to nothing except a single watchtower in hand, and then fill back up & grab some more hamlets, and +$ cards.

Itís a pretty simple strategy, but at least in few games I've played them together it seemed very effective, especially if you can get the majority of the Hamlets.

This combo seems to strengthen some other kingdom cards that donít give you extra cards, but give you coin, and especially +coin +action, (Festival, Minion might be interesting, Pawn?)

Iím just an average player, so I easily could be missing some way for an opponent to shut it down, or some flaw in my logic, Iíd love to hear what the lvl 35+ guys think about this interaction.

Dominion General Discussion / Keeping track of turns...
« on: June 18, 2011, 05:16:22 pm »
So when you guys play "in real life" without the benefit of the computer counting your turns, and cards like outlook / posession are out, causing an potentially widely varying amounts of turns, does anyone have any brilliant ideas on keeping track of who has taken how many?  Or do you just write them down?

I tied with someone the other day in an outpost game & knew I had lost because my opponent hadn't even bought an outpost, and I knew I had played mine, but I didn't know for sure how many times I had, so it got me thinking about it.
