Forum Games / Re: Invitation to the Mafia Championship (season 6)
« on: April 10, 2019, 10:06:20 am »
I just want to be town this time. If I get scum for the third time in a row in these championship games, it's not going to be good for someone.

By someone, are you referring to yourself?

I'm not sure I'll go with a popup as it might be difficult for it to work well across screen sizes and with varied post lengths, but how best to refer to replied to posts is definitely on my radar. Highlighting the post if it's on-screen is a cool idea.

I'm not sure if it's unreasonably difficult to implement, but that's a pretty standard image board feature.

So that you can link back to the previous one? What about instead a view that shows all the votes?

That could work too.

Here are some feature requests:

1) optional e-mail notifications for (each as a separate option):
 - game starts
 - new game phase starts
 - new votes
 - new posts

2) in each post, display links to all of the replies to that post

3) when you hover your cursor over a post link, highlight that post in a slightly different color if it's visible on the current screen, otherwise display it in a popup where your cursor is

4) when you click on a post link, instead of reloading the page, just jump to that post if it's on the same page

5) Make it possible for a post to be a reply to multiple posts

6) Consider making each vote count a reply to each previous vote count

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Competitiveness
« on: April 08, 2019, 01:12:39 am »
Are you competitive, i.e. does winning (or your ranking) in Dominion matter to you? Why or why not? Are you as competitive in other areas in your life as you are in Dominion?

To whatever extent Dominion matters to me, winning matters to me. Specifically, I want to lose rather than win, because that usually means improving faster, whereas you can't always learn anything from a victory.

Variants and Fan Cards / Re: Weekly Design Contest Thread
« on: April 07, 2019, 11:56:30 am »


It's a budget Smithy.  It will be great if you can keep the silvers out of the way. Hopefully not too good.

This card is... incredibly weak. As the Fan Card Creation Guide says, the difference between $3 and $4 is negligible, so this card is far too weak to only cost $1 more than Smithy, with both an on-play and an on-gain drawback. Heck, I'd give it +4 Cards instead of 3 and price it the same.

It doesn't have an on-gain drawback, it has an on-gain attack.

Maybe Donald can shed some light on Tormentor and Devil's Workshop? Others that maybe were based on instructions could be Plan, Wild Hunt, Skulk, Flag Bearer, Hideout and Barracks.
If the women all had chainmail bikinis, I suspect someone would be complaining about that too.

I mean, someone is already complaining about the needlessly sexy Vampire.

My deck contains a Throne Room, card X and otherwise only base cards (no Ruins). There are no Adventures tokens placed anywhere. I play Throne Room on X and draw 7 cards. What is X?

It's Hunting Grounds but you only have 7 cards in your deck/discard pile.

It has and it's called Enchantress.

I'm pretty sure that the "don't urinate on the cards" rule

Also known as the "don't take notes" rule.

I would take a shot at this again, if you guys are ok with that. afair we didn't have any formal selection process last time.

I'm fine with it.

Simulation / Re: BM + Flag Bearer
« on: April 03, 2019, 01:20:45 am »
Why does buying the first Flag Bearer put you at a disadvantage?

What trivialknot said is true, but on a more general level which is applicable to human games too, buying the Flag Bearer when your opponent has the Flag has three effects: removing your opponent's Flag, taking the Flag, and gaining a terminal Silver. Buying the first Flag Bearer only has two of those effects, which means that it's a weaker purchase that enables a stronger purchase for your opponent. Concretely, if both players buy exactly one Flag Bearer and never trash it, the one who bought it first just paid $4 for a terminal Silver and the one who bought it last also still has the Flag.

Updated role call:


1. Uncle
2. Swan
3. DebatePro
4. Galz



4-player Prisoner's Dilemma?


Don't know how to play... reading.

The way it works is that everyone votes for Shared Victory and then you hope you're in the setup without the Goon.

In. Where do we see our roles though?

You get a PM with a number and then the game start post explains what role everyone's number corresponds to.

Oh, the no alcohol thing is just because I don't like because it tastes horrible... it's unrelated to the veganism thing :-P

What do you mean it tastes horrible, it tastes great. If taste was the only factor to consider, I'd drink alcohol all the time, but unfortunately it's expensive and unhealthy and I don't like the feeling of being drunk.

No fair.. I don't think bribing the mods should be allowed because I'm too far away to offer anything materially interesting :-P

We're cool with friendship bribes.  We lame.  Or just promises to try those awesome M&M's if you see them.  They good.

Is it a friendship fail if I don't try the M&M's... I don't think I've ever seen a vegan M&M :-(

Pretty sure this M&M is vegan: https://www.getgooddrums.com/products/modern-massive-pack

Okay, it's emus.  But not the creepy ones.

If it's an emu themed Mafia game, then scum has to be Australian military.

You don't have to announce intent to hammer in this game, there are no town PRs so everyone is just going to claim VT.
I'm a noob, so you don't announce your intent to hammer for any reason other than to enable someone to claim?

Yeah, pretty much.
