Dominion General Discussion / Help! I've become too good!
« on: November 16, 2011, 10:59:54 am »
Ok, so not exactly. Only rank 7 on Iso (can't seem to get past 10 :( ).

Long story short, I've played about 200 games more than my girlfriend. She's not the worst player in our group, but I consistently beat her in 2 player games. She has no interest in becoming anything more than a casual player. I, on the other hand, am quite cutthroat and have an extremely difficult time not being so.

I'm stuck on the concept of "If I can't beat BM, then why play?" when choosing strategies.

What can I do to make the game more competitive between us? Is there a good way to "play down" in Dominion, without it being obvious? And, how can I help my gf become better, without coming off as an asshole? ("Are you sure you want to buy that?" doesn't work too well with anyone. They bought, obviously they wanted it.)

Dominion General Discussion / The Decline of My Dominion Skills
« on: September 29, 2011, 10:37:52 am »
So far, I've played well over 200 games between 2-player Iso and 2-6 player AFK. When first learning the cards, I was a horrible player. After discovering Iso and this site, however, my game increased tremendously. Now, however, it seems that I am making very similar mistakes to those I made when first learning to play.

I seem to be stuck in a rut. Usually, I don't pick up on the best strategy on the board until about turn 10. It's at this time I realize that I'm going to lose the game since my strategy was invalid due to the rest of the kingdom (i.e. Gardens strategy with no +Buy and only 1 non-terminal action).

Here's my council room profile for everyone to laugh at some of my mistakes, but moreso maybe be able to provide me with an insight to why my game is deteriorating.

Dominion General Discussion / Storage Solution for Dominion
« on: September 27, 2011, 12:35:28 pm »
I am now the proud owner of a complete, sleeved set of Dominion cards. All I need now is a box to put them all in. I've spent hours pouring over the BGG forums, files and images and haven't found a solution that will fit everything into one elegant looking box. The majority of elegant looking solutions seem to only cover a portion of the released expanions, or contain no room for Hinterlands.

What I am looking for is a solution that will be cheap, effective, easy to set and clean up, and be mostly self contained. So far, I'm leaning towards the tuck box idea. Though, I'm still unsure how I'm going to put them all into 1 box. The Amazon Big Box just doesn't seem strong enough to hold the weight.

What are your current or future solutions to hold Dominion and its expansions (At least Hinterlands incl)?
