Dominion General Discussion / Which card takes the longest to play?
« on: August 11, 2011, 05:40:10 pm »
I'm a pretty fast player(maybe not to by benefit) but I have a couple of IRL friends that are a bit slower than me. Especially with a couple of cards that make them sit there and think. Forge comes to mind.

Which card, do you find, takes the longest to play?

I haven't played Cornucopia IRL, but I can imagine KC-> Hunting Party must take a nice chunk of time.

Game Reports / A game you're proud of, and a game you're not.

Here are two games, both against highly ranked players Blooki and mikemike. One of them I play well. The other I start out well, but it does not end well.

Against Blooki:

His superior deck thinning creates a devastating engine that I'm just not used to seeing, at that time I had not played seaside that much.

Against mikemike:

Buying Labs instead of Cities early is the deciding factor in this one I believe.

Both pretty interesting games I think. I encourage others to post in the same format, a game you're proud of and a game where you can see a mistake that really blew you out of the water.

Dominion General Discussion / I have a problem
« on: July 15, 2011, 01:08:48 pm »
A serious problem, which makes me lose games.

Hell, my name's HockeyHippo and I'm a engine addict.

Too often I try to make a huge engine that wins the game in one turn. Especially when I'm playing IRL. In 4 player games I simply get torn apart by attack cards.

Sometimes it works and I love myself, other times I cry myself to sleep.

Why can't I just play a normal game and buy a province one at a time? Why must I buy two Grand Markets with 13, rather than a Province and  Dutchy?

I need help.
