Dominion General Discussion / Worst Kingdom Design Thread!

I don't think we've had a thread like this since Hinterlands. I challenge anyone to come up with a kingdom half as annoying as this one.

Dominion General Discussion / Courtyard-Explorer
« on: February 24, 2012, 07:30:59 pm »
I got a 5-2 split on a big money board that had these two, and I realized that they're absolutely dominant when put together.

Courtyard loves to join with any strong terminal non-drawer, because there's zero collision risk. My belief is that Explorer actually becomes a strong terminal non-drawer when paired with Courtyard.

Explorer gets a lot of hate because it's hard to get it to generate the Gold (and when it generates the Silver, it's not worth its price.)

But with good deck-counting, you know (1) whether your Explorer is left in the deck, and (2) whether your Provinces are left in the deck. Courtyard's ability becomes critical there, because you can actually put a Province back on your deck, instead of treasure, if you know the Explorer is coming.

I feel, in my heart, that this has to be significantly stronger than a pure Courtyard and money strategy. I can't get simulator results to back it up, but I don't think the simulator would play the strategy well.

I'd love to hear thoughts from some of the better big money players.
