My problem with estimating centimeters is that because I'm in the United States, the only time I use centimeters is in science, and in those cases the actual values they quantify don't really matter, and I end up thinking of centimeters as short inches.  However, I've noticed that in my mind I sometimes think of it being about 1.5 centimeters to an inch, not 2.5 centimeters to an inch...

Yeah, it's obvious that Bureaucrat is the strongest card in all of Dominion.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Would you trash an estate worth 2VP?

Personally, I think if the estates were provinces it would still be the best move to trash them a significant portion of the time.

I guess none of us can play with him now, sadly...

Rules Questions / Re: Inheritance and Nomad Camp
« on: February 11, 2018, 04:30:19 pm »
I thought Donald said somewhere that things like Nomad Camp change the rule that says things are gained to your discard.  It's just that it's gained onto your deck rather than your discard, so other effects can change it just like they change normal gains.

Poor Scout
$1 Action
+1 Action
Reveal the top 4 cards of your deck. Put the revealed Victory cards into your hand. Put the other cards on top of your deck in any order.
Reveal your hand. –$1 per Victory card in your hand.
(You can't go below $0.)

House
$4 Action

It should give +$4.

Crap.

How does Black score?   Boons don't go into anyone's decks, or do you keep track how many have been received?

It just says "per Boon".  Not "per Boons you have in your deck" or "per Boons received", just "per Boon".  That means that it's either worth 0 points if Boons aren't around, or 24 points if Boons are out.

White Card: Computer-generated cards

Okay, fine then, replace it with a d10.  I just said what Dingan said.

12
Echip
Action–Duration|$2
+e Cards.
+1 Action.

Strictly better than Laboratory

But requires you to destroy some cards *and* make good estimates of what 0.718 of a card is.

Toss up your thousand Echip tokens. If 718 or more of them landed heads-up, draw a card.

But...that's not e cards.  That's just 2.718 cards.

How about this: Toss up your ten Echip tokens.  If less than 7 landed heads-up, draw a card.  If exactly 7 landed heads-up, repeat this process, but with 1, then 8, then 2, then 8, and so on...

I was dying.



(video shows a player having fun with the physics and AI of BotW, nothing I would consider spoilers)

No joke, I just came here after watching a bunch of his videos.

I also like to liken it to coins, too.  "Actions" is a currency that you use up when playing an action card.  "+N Actions" just adds that much to your Actions currency.

15
Counting Market
Types: Action
Cost: $4
You may reveal an Action card from your hand. If you do, discard it or trash up to 4 cards from your hand.
+$2
+1 Buy

This is actually an interesting concept.  You can only trash if you have an action in your hand.

i've never got the point of these.
is there some sort of feedback that eventually gets the computer to learn and make good cards?
or is this just going to create things that don't make sense forever like robo-rosewater does for magic cards?

I think that given a huge dataset (thousand or even millions of (good) cards), this could make good cards.  However, with such a small dataset, it will probably make bad cards with the occasional okay one until it starts copying real cards.

The Zelda location I would most want to live in is probably Skyloft from Skyward Sword, though.

I would be so scared of falling off for my entire life.

Alright Awaclus, I'll help you not feel lonely.

Here's me singing in a Christmas choir:



I'm the furthest guy on the left in the front row wearing the plaid shirt.  I'm singing bass, if anybody wants to try to pick out my part.  It might be more interesting to head to 8:37 in the video, because there we do a couple Pentatonix songs with a smaller group.

My mom was wondering, what's the translation of "Sizilianisches Jagdlied"?  She thinks it's Sicilian Hunting Song, but she just wants to be sure and google translate isn't perfect.

Did she ask you to ask the random stuff thread?

No, but I suggested it, for fear of being wrong.  Even though it wouldn't have been me that was wrong.

I just did an entrance randomizer key-sanity run.  4:26:38, but I got pretty unlucky with several things and made a few mistakes.

This is definitely a topic that needs to be discussed, but couldn't it be split into a meta thread or something?

Also, the whole "I see him strike his true enemy" thing was super on-the-nose, but ok whatever.

If I recall properly, Snoke was basically reading Kylo's mind. He was taunting Rey that he knows everything his apprentice is doing. So I view that scene as Kylo manipulating Luke's lightsaber as he held his own so that Snoke saw his intent but was focused on what was ahead of him. It reminds me of the murder plot of the Minority Report movie. To mask the true intent, he mirrors the actions in order to commit the actual act.

Not that they said anything about that, so maybe I'm blowing smoke out of my ass. But if Snoke is pulling that directly from Kylo's mind, then it makes sense that he would frame it as "my true enemy" and not "Rey," since he had no intention of killing Rey. And he sure as hell couldn't telegraph killing Snoke.

I get that Kylo was trying to muddy his thoughts so that Snoke wouldn't see what was going on. I don't have an issue with that.

It's the phrasing Snoke uses, "I see him strike his true enemy" (if memory serves right) that bothers me. What the hell did he see, that the best way to describe it is that? The "true" in particular is weird, why would Rey be his "true" enemy? As opposed to whom? If anything, that refers to Snoke much more than to Rey, who was the obvious enemy there, so how come Snoke doesn't get even a bit suspicious if he sees that?

I don't know, it broke my suspension of disbelief.

I thought that Kylo was purposely thinking something like "I will strike my true enemy", and Snoke just paraphrased it.

White card: how finishing that article on Prince

Darn it, I was going to say something as how, but I forgot his password.

The truth comes out after all these years.

Or are you bluffing? Beware, the real how can show up without notice to defend their honour.

I admitted it back then somewhere.  Someone made a first world problems meme about it, probably in Homage to the Best Card.
