Dominion is a great game.
Agreed.

This implementation of Dominion makes players jump through a lot of unnecessary hoops in order to enjoy the game.
I wouldn't even know. It looks nice, but I haven't really played online much since isotropic. (even then I didn't play online much. But I was able to solitaire a few games on my iPod Touch, which was nice for trying new cards between IRL game nights.)

If I didn't order a bunch of other stuff from CSI, I'd probably grab it on Amazon to get it for my birthday.

So we're just going with supply types, and ignoring types that are not in the supply?

Start several turns after them. Vocalize your strategy. Stuff like that.

Boons as a whole would be cooler if the deck order was face up.
I'm probably going to do that the first few times I play anyways, same with Hexes as well. At least until I know what to expect when playing.

Online is a different story. And I haven't played online in almost 2 years, so I'm the wrong person to ask.

We’re approaching the Dominion anniversary. Do you have anything planned for that?

I bet my advice on how to win would ultimately lead to you losing more. At least, when it comes to Dominion.

If you put sleeves on Events and Landmarks, do you use card sleeves?

I love these discussions that don't actually go anywhere useful. :)

I don't think I ever realized how little attention I paid to the artwork until now.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Asking for Undo
« on: November 14, 2017, 12:15:20 am »
Do you find it poor manners to be denied an undo?  There are situations where it is an obvious mistake, such as pressing the end turn button instead of the end actions button.

I have gotten back into the game recently since I left at the end of the iso days.  I haven't had problems with impolite players on .games until today when I had two players who refused undos.  I am fully aware that I might be the asshole by blocking those people, but I'm not aware of the conventions.  Is that not an asshole move to refuse a quick undo?  I'm happy to follow the norms of the community, no matter how cutthroat it is or not, but I want to know how people stand on refusing an undo.  Am I doing these players wrong by resigning and blocking them?  Is it normal to refuse an undo and still be someone people want to play with?

I can see games where I grant Undo even with them gleaming knowledge.  Some of the best and most fun games I've played were ones where I lost.
If I didn't have fun in games where I lost, I would have never bought 10 boxes full of Dominion cards.

This might be meaningful to someone:

Thursdays release will have Nocturne fully implemented

Huh. I routinely play Dominion with unsleeved cards, food, drink and cats.
That's an interesting way to play a 5p solo game ...
They can't all be the best 5p solo games

Dominion Online at Shuffle iT / Re: Is it okay to buy Possession?
« on: November 12, 2017, 12:19:12 am »
I wonder how broken it would be to replace a Copper with a Potion if Alchemy cards are out? You aren't at risk of missing the shuffle that way.

Pretty bad/broken/awful.

1) It kills the potion mechanic (potion is an opportunity cost, the strength of the potion cards revolve around having to invest into potion first, otherwise they'd be super strong)

2) Sometimes you want Potions late, and it's irritating why you would have to start with them in those games (aka vineyard,golem, posssession)

3) Hitting 3 Potion is already annoying on the second shuffle, but imagine one player getting a Familiar and one player getting nothing instead.
I guess I was figuring the starting deck would be EEECCCCCCP, and like Shelters or Heirlooms the Potion would not be a supply pile. Now your opening hands can get those Potion cost cards without worrying about missing that shuffle. You don't pay the opportunity cost on a Buy, but you are stuck with it unless you trash it. I'm going to try it next time Potion cards come up, just because I want to see how much it affects those first few turns.

1. So I agree with this, they would be strong, but its equal for everyone. Maybe this version of Potion would be like Cursed Gold, where you gain a curse by playing it...

2. It's irritating to start with Estates and Copper, too right?

3. It really just deflects that randomness to the opening hands instead of that first shuffle. Starting hands would be 2/4P, 3/3P, 4/2P, 5/1P instead of the 3/4, 2/5 of a non-Potion game.

I think at least one person is using "synergy" to mean something along the lines of, "when X and Y are used together, extra function Z happens."

I would contest that cycling cards and villages have synergy because they can't really be an engine on their own, but can create an engine together.

I'm pretty sure the Cultist was the first to ruin Dominion.

The Black Market Treasure-variant would be stronger, though.

You know, technically this thread isn't about nothing. I mean, we wouldn't spend 3 pages arguing about what the word "nothing" means, right guys?

Please start a thread about "nothing". Not about nothing, because that's what this thread is. Try not to be ambiguous.
I know when my girlfriend says "nothing" that a whole lot of something is about to be discussed.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Male and female cards (again)
« on: November 09, 2017, 03:33:43 pm »
A Warlock would give out 1.266 curses when you played it.

I figure he would do equal work, but would cost 6.33 coins.
Using the first post, I came up with average values:

Male: $3.90 (135)
Female: $4.33 (55)
NA/Both: $3.35 (165)

(Note: The card list I used included Landmarks, which drops the average values as they have no cost.)


[In RSP style, women make less than half what men make, because there's less of them.]

Justice League says there's no way in heck I'm getting off that weekend. Would have been fun, though.

This is great. Not only can I use these ideas to teach more friends how to play well, maybe I can learn something too! :)
