And thank you for this forum and this great community. Hope you have a good one!

Here is a virtual cake:

Game Reports / Games where BMU would have beaten you
« on: March 23, 2015, 05:16:17 pm »
Sometimes you just don't play that well.. but dragging a game with no attacks to 30 turns has to be a new personal best.

Code: [Select]
Courtyard, Embargo, Alchemist, Advisor, Bureaucrat, Smithy, Thief, Wandering Minstrel, Tactician, Fairgrounds

I don't know what happened. I hope someone has something worse to show, just to make me feel better.

Game Reports / To engine or not to engine?
« on: April 01, 2014, 06:42:44 pm »

After deciding on boring courtyard-bm, I started focusing on facebook and mafia and didn't give this much attention. When I had three provinces to one, I kind of wrote this off as a win and started focusing even less. There were some decisions as to how to use my coin token (that turn 8 province should have been a gold?), and I likely want a third courtyard at some point, even with the potential for island in the future (or were they a mistake altogether? I thought I could clinch 50% VP before he'd get there) and I drew 7 a lot, but still.. is this really an engine board? I didn't think I'd be asking such a question these days, but courtyard-BM is quite good and the engine has like nothing going for it.

SCSN, enlighten me!

... apparently, despite my 10000 posts, I'm a noob and don't know how to use the kingdom displayer.

.. just started!

So excited, who else other than me and TwistedArcher is watching?

Game Reports / Minion engine or fool's gold?
« on: July 28, 2013, 01:24:12 pm »

For minions, there is golem, market, vineyards and doctor for trashing. Storeroom is awesome with fool's gold though, and venture isn't half bad either after FG runs out. Which is better here?

I won't spoil what happened yet, but I encourage everyone to analyze the board, I think it's a good exercice!

Game Reports / Sometimes a draw can feel like a win
« on: June 09, 2013, 05:47:29 pm »

The seventh province was bought on turn 13 and the game went on for 28 turns total. Explorer truly was my shining knight! We also have scout making a contribution.

Game Reports / Getting destroyed by adventurer
« on: May 29, 2013, 06:44:45 pm »

You should post that one publicly. Definitely one of the weirdest games I have ever seen. Adventurer and Wandering Minstrel as Tunnel activators? Dark, dark times we live in.

So, opponent was someone reasonably good, I think rating 5300 or so. I thought it was a fairly straightforward stables-game with a single junk dealer, but lo and behold, wandering minstrel + adventurer for tunnel enablers and I'm crushed. What just happened?

Game Reports / To engine or not to engine?
« on: February 24, 2013, 05:34:21 pm »
Two games against the man, the myth, the legend, Robz888. We are playing battleship-style.
I try to ignore ambassador, but my embassy-bm with horse traders support gets smoked by Robz's city engine. He ambassadors the last border village to me to activate his cities mid turn, nice little trick there.
So, there is strong silk roads support with nobles, hoard (and contraband). For the engine there is masquerade and king's court, not much else (well, nomad camp for the buys). Again Robz goes for the engine, but this time my silk road strategy is just fast enough to eek out a win. I should have gone for cellars on turn 22, that was dumb of me.

But yeah, interesting boards with diverging strategies. I still don't like the engine on the 2nd, the cards are just too weak and the masquerades become a real problem kind of fast. What do you think?

Game Reports / If I was any good, this would be a dominion academy topic
« on: January 25, 2013, 07:21:53 am »
Eh, just played this very interesting board with Greytips. Cards in supply: Chapel, Cutpurse, Duke, Farming Village, Potion, Remake, Spice Merchant, Steward, Tactician, Vineyard, and Worker's Village.

We go first. What's our play here?

Duchy-duke is a consideration on a board this weak. There is also chapel, tactician and a lot of villages for the engine, maybe even some double tactician thing, but the actions are pretty weak. Vineyards is there as the only potion cost, but again, support for a big action chain is hardly very good. The best province-based big money option would be remake or cutpurse I suppose, but I doubt anyone was going to suggest that. So, how to proceed? Does it matter what our opponent does? I'll hold off from posting the log for now, but it's pretty interesting.

I got the lucky silver in the beginning and everything, and still had pretty much no chance at any point. Why?

Game Reports / VP chips degeneracy
« on: January 03, 2013, 09:22:19 pm »
MrEevee has 89 points (77 ▼ and 2 Provinces) and took 22 turns.
catfishalomar has 78 points (60 ▼ and 3 Provinces) and took 21 turns.

.. and no goons this time. My deck came together ok in the end so I guess I played this reasonably well. A very nice and unique board!

Help! / masq-bm vs pirate ships with no +buy
« on: December 22, 2012, 01:44:20 am »

I thought masq-bm would be best on this board with no +buys. Well, apparently it wasnt. Am I underestimating pirate ship? Or did I just paint myself in that corner with some bad moves?

Game Reports / yet another mint opening into big money
« on: November 25, 2012, 06:59:23 pm » I like cute mint tricks. 5 colonies and a province in 17 turns seems pretty good too.

Game Reports / I play big money
« on: November 23, 2012, 01:34:28 am »

i don't think i've ever only bought silvers, golds, provinces and duchies before. should i have deviated from this at any point?

Help! / First time trying Herbalist + Philosopher's Stone
« on: November 20, 2012, 08:29:42 pm »
So I was playing some level 0 guy (who played a lot better than I'd expect a level 0 to play). I know I won the game, but 4 provinces, 4 duchies and 2 estates in 21 turns with very little attacking (that actually only benefited me) seems awfully slow and this was supposed to be a very good combo on it's own. What did I do wrong, apart from not drawing my potion with my herbalists in the early game?

Game Reports / Ambassador-city-KC insanity

.. that left my opponent with 45 coppers and 86 cards. No idea how this board should be played though.

So it's 15.2 celsius (59 fahrenheit for those of you who don't know the metric system, as a side note you should learn it)  INSIDE here, don't even want to think what it's like outside (probably not that cold, no idea why they aren't heating this place at all).


Game Reports / Opening mint to play big money
« on: October 22, 2012, 08:23:14 pm »
First time for everything. It was pretty strong for a big money strategy too. Nice little interaction I hadn't thought of before.

Game Reports / fun with scrying pool and secret chamber
« on: October 04, 2012, 11:12:18 pm »
Everyone probably knows this combo already, but this was the first time I got to use it to the fullest. Featuring buying a woodcutter for $32 and a secret chamber for $24 (I probably misplayed it rather bad, as I said first time doing this).

Opponent (level 33 or something) went for the gardens-secret chamber opening, which didn't quite work out this time. I'm glad he let me play it out though.

Here is the log:

Introductions / It's me, Eevee!
« on: October 03, 2012, 11:43:04 pm »
I've been meaning to do this for a long time, and since I'm busy procrastinating at the moment, it's finally time. It seems I registered here in the beginning of this year, I think I was reading the articles for a couple of months before that. I recall registering to participate in a tournament, in which I took a hilarious beating losing every single match. It was really fun though, and got me posting on the other areas of the forum as well (well, I haven't really posted that much if you exclude the forum games section). I used to be really excited about dominion, but don't play nearly as much these days (combination of goko and forum mafia and maybe me starting to suck at the game for some reason). Nowadays my dominion playing is super casual, I tend to explore fun and interesting strategies rather than maximize my win chances. Back when I "played well" (peaked at level 44), I was a big money / alt vp - type of a player, probably because I learnt everything I knew from WW's videos, so it's not exactly a wonder this "building fun engines" style doesn't result in that many wins. I don't own any of the games physically and have never tried Goko, so I've never played any dark ages, would sure be interested though. Would anyone happen to know if getting a copy of the dark ages to Finland would be possible already? I'm sure none of the stores have it yet as it hasn't been translated. I'd even have a friend who is better than me at the game, (doesn't post here), so could definitely be tons of fun.

Oh yeah, backwards intro post is backwards, I'm 21 years old, surprisingly male and from Finland. I live in Helsinki (the capital) with my girlfriend and play poker for a living (heads up, 5-10 to 10-20 for the poker players around). Surely love my job! For hobbies, I started a floorball team with some friends this spring, and also do some racket sports (mainly table tennis and padel, also some tennis but I suck at it / think it's too hard to be fun). Because of the poker thing, my sleep schedule is often super wacky (typing this at 6:33am, haven't slept yet). I probably drink a little too often, but it is so so very fun. One of the more time consuming hobbies lately has also been forum mafia, which is also a big reason I still spend a lot of time on this site, despite semi-losing interest in dominion. This community is awesome though, so this is definitely not one of those farewell posts. It also got long, but ohwell, I'm sure it'll still earn me an upvote or two.

Oh and if you've never tried forum mafia, I highly recommend it. It's pretty awesome!

Game Reports / A semi-ok 3card combo
« on: September 20, 2012, 04:36:35 am »
Starting to get back to playing dominion again after not feeling it for a while, thought I'd post a game here too even though it isn't anything too exciting.

I open loan-salvager, buy a lot treasuries (over gold on turn 7 and over province/gold on turn 8) while getting rid of bad cards, finally salvaging the loan and utilizing salvager to end the game before my deck stalls. I generally despise loan in non-engine decks, but this felt pretty cool. There probably isn't anything faster on the board this time anyways, so maybe this particular game isn't a very good example, but I'm thinking this would maybe be competitive against all but the very strongest big money strategies.

Game Reports / 35 turns
« on: July 28, 2012, 07:41:49 pm »
Featuring both players buying a potion and getting grand total of 1 alchemist combined. It was really cool just buying nothing turn after turn, always topdecking the schemes even though they were the only actions that did anything anymore.

Might've been the longest 2p game I've ever played.

Game Reports / Since i posted one where Obi Wan owned me
« on: April 14, 2012, 01:34:09 am »

I somehow always feel especially good after winning with a card that's usually garbage. This was probably my first time actually getting anything out of counting house, and oh boy was it good for me here.

MrEevee's turn 28
   MrEevee plays a Counting House.
   ... putting 12 Coppers from the discard pile into the hand.
   MrEevee plays a Silver and 14 Coppers.
   MrEevee buys a Colony.
   (MrEevee draws: a Colony, a Counting House, and 3 Coppers.)

MrEevee's turn 29
   MrEevee plays a Counting House.
   ... putting 14 Coppers from the discard pile into the hand.
   MrEevee plays 17 Coppers.
   MrEevee buys a Colony.
   (MrEevee reshuffles.)
   (MrEevee draws: a Worker's Village, a Monument, a Colony, and 2 Coppers.)

Game Reports / golden deck not so golden?
« on: April 09, 2012, 01:22:26 pm »
Didn't really see myself losing when I got my golden deck up and running by turn 8. But then..
