Here's a relatively formulaic challenge which I present mainly for amusement value:

Play a Smuggler before the player to your right has had a turn.

Play Pouch, Cursed Gold, 3 Coppers. Spend Baker coffer, buy Borrow, Innovation, Smugglers.

Play Pouch, Cursed Gold, 2 Coppers. Buy Innovation. Advance Necropolis into Smugglers.

Dominion League / Season 33 - Signups
« on: February 06, 2019, 02:56:47 pm »
Season 33 will run from Monday, April 1 until Sunday, May 12 and you can sign up until Wednesday, March 27 at 19:00 UTC.

If you are a returning player, we encourage you to sign up before Sunday, March 24. Depending on space, you may be required to play a placement match or return at a lower level.

As of Season 31, we are requiring all new and returning players to join the Dominion Discord before signing up. If you arenít familiar with it, Discord is a messaging app for gamers, ideal for real-time chatting with your opponents in the League. It is a lively community of players of all skill levels with regular discussion of Dominion strategy, fun tournaments, and playful banter. It also allows you to listen to live commentary of many matches. The League has been mostly conducted over Discord in recent seasons, so this change is just making it all officially required.

Staying in the league
If you are playing in Season 32, please don't post here, but fill out the Returning form that you should have been sent in a PM. Itís also pinned in your division-specific channel in Discord.

Returning to the league
If you last played in the Dominion League some time in the past year (Seasons 27 through 31), please post a message here stating your dominion.games username, your timezone*, your Discord username (formatted like @___#___), the last season you were in, the division you played and the place you finished. If you last played earlier than that, simply sign up as if you were a new member; see below.

New to the league
Welcome to the League! To join the League, you must first have accounts on both dominion.games and the Dominion Discord. Once you have both of those, please post a message in this thread with both usernames (Discord formatted like @___#___) and your timezone*.

Please make sure to state the exact spelling of your usernames (upper/lower case, special characters, and so on). You will be placed in an appropriate division according to your rating on dominion.games as seen in the client or here. We recommend playing at least 10 rated games before the League starts so that your rating can be appropriately calibrated.

Please check the welcome thread first and read the rules to make sure you're comfortable with the format and the time it takes to play a season. If you have any questions be sure to check out the FAQ. You can also ask questions about the League at the dominionleague channel on Discord.

You will also receive a personal message on Discord from one of the league moderators within a week to confirm your signup. You must reply to this message within the specified time frame (2-7 days, depending on how close to the signup deadline it is) or your signup will be removed. In addition, we require all players to "check in" during the first week of the season or forfeit their place. This consists of filling out a very short form to confirm that you plan to play the season that will be sent at the start of the season. If you fail to check in promptly, you could be removed.

The Google Sheet in the following post will contain all Signups as they are processed by the moderators and then confirmed. Please check back again in a few days to make sure your signup was entered correctly.

*When specifying a timezone, please use one of these common examples or use the same format and look yours up in the complete list.

If there is no space appropriate for you (given your level and timezone), we will instead invite you to sign up for next season! You should hear back either way by Sunday, February 10.

I feel the reaction to this is a bit harsh. The artist took a real person's likeness as a basis for an illustration. So what? A real person isn't copyrighted. The person whose photo was taken didn't agree, so I guess you could claim infringed privacy, but, well, it's an artistic rendition, and based on a public appearance, too. And what apart from the people should be copyrightable in that picture? I kinda doubt it even fulfills the threshold of originality principle. If anything, it's the clothes he wears you could complain about - just that, those are standard run-off-the-mill (pseudo) medieval clothes, no big art to be stolen here. I mean, it's intransparent, and of course he could have done a better job conceiling the model, so I agree this is NOT something you want. But being "disgusted" about it...? Really? Many world-famous artists have gone much further there.

The photograph itself is copyrighted as well.

Modifying a card's instructions (Lamp)

Yes, but also BoM, Overlord, Inheritance and arguably Envious.
Inheritance modifies your cards based on name, the same as Lantern.

Oh sure, I forgot about Envious (and Coppersmith).

does it mean cheaper than the card discarded, or cheaper than cannabal?

Not to mention there may be more than one card discarded. Does it mean cheaper than all cards discarded? Any one of them? Cannibal itself? Also, "from the supply" can be dropped.

Rules Questions / Re: Capitalism and Keep
« on: December 16, 2018, 08:07:58 pm »
If one or both players buy capitalism, do the actions capitalism makes into treasures count for keep? The obvious answer is yes since they are treasures, but it isn't obvious to me what happens if only one player buys capitalism. Might it depend on which players turn it is when the game ends?

At the end of the game, it is not anyone's turn, so those Actions aren't Treasures when scoring.

Rules Questions / Inheritance and Border Guard
« on: November 08, 2018, 04:28:25 am »


If I Inherit a Border Guard, the consensus seems to be that I do not get to use the abilities of the associated artifacts with it. The Horn lets me topdeck a Border Guard during cleanup, and an Estate isn't a Border Guard, so I can't topdeck an Estate. Seems clear enough. Likewise, the Lantern causes my Border Guards to reveal 3 cards, and Estates aren't Border Guards, so that doesn't work either, right? Hold on, not so fast! Lantern works on all my Border Guards, including the one with the Estate token on it... which is the card my Estates gain their abilities from. The thing the Estate is copying reveals 3 cards, so the Estate also reveals 3 cards. To me, Lantern is statically modifying the abilities of all my Border Guards at all times, and my Estates should inherit (pun intended) those modified abilities. For it to work the other way, I would expect Lantern to be worded something like "When you reveal or discard cards with a Border Guard, reveal or discard one more": an ability that replaces one event with another as it happens.

Variants and Fan Cards / Re: Weekly Design Contest Thread
« on: November 05, 2018, 03:00:03 am »
Ok, I'm throwing my hat into the ring.

Here are four cards inspired by the four special cards in Tichu:



The Little Bird rewards you for correctly guessing a card in the next player's hand. It only works once because they have to reveal to confirm your guess, and after that it would be trivial to get the bonus.

Dominion players are well aware of the principle that one great thing is better than two good things. This is the case in Tichu as well, and the Dog is a card that weakens your own hand but strengthens your partner's. Cards that hurt your current turn to help the next one are a well-explored design space in Dominion, so I had some trouble creating something new. While making this card I kept reinventing Gear, Tactician, and Secret Cave. In the end I settled on a gainer. The synergy with Faithful Hound is a nice bonus.

Phoenix is a wish you can buy! Tichu's Phoenix is a wild card worth negative points, so you get a curse when you play this.

The mighty Dragon has a powerful effect and is worth points, but you don't get to keep him when you play him! This Dragon is a little nicer; you can appease him by feeding him Victory cards.
