Dominion General Discussion / Re: How carefully/slowly do you play?
« on: October 19, 2017, 05:57:41 pm »
Go back to some old AI (the person, not the computer) games for some slow games. I can't find the link quickly, but there was that one game that lasted an hour I believe

Thank you! Any tips for where to start on here for a new forum user?

This thread. Read it from start to finish; it should get you at least 30% caught up on what is going on around here.

That was the thread that got me introduced to the forum

Yeah, this problem is literally the worst thing that has happened to me. I hope I don't have to deal with it before next Friday.

I agree.

Now I have to question everyone who says something is bimonthly or biweekly?

Avoid ambiguity- say twice a month, every other week etc.

Man I don't get people. I ask awesome questions on Tinder like "would you sacrifice me to the volcano gods in order to have your favorite food in infinite supply" and I don't even get a response.  :'(

Way too in depth for tinder. Well, from what I hear, not from experience

For the past week I was wondering just how can they cram Stephen King's It into a 2-hour movie. The answer is that they cannot. I was unaware that this is only Chapter 1. That does make sense, and I'm not mad, bro.

The film was very competent. There were some pretty good shots, and the actors all seemed to do pretty well. As to be expected, some scenes did not make it into the movie, and I missed them terribly, but a newcomer likely wouldn't notice.

So far the gripes I have about it are few. Due to the setting change, Richie's fear was also changed. I understand why they abandoned the Wolfman, but they could have chosen a better target. Also, the lone "beep-beep" line was really out of place since they changed that up too. And finally, the resolution was more physical than spiritual. Leaving this vague for anyone not familiar with the story, but let me just say that the battery acid will be missed.

But pretty good movie. Will watch Chapter 2.

As someone who has not seen/read other versions of the story, I thought the movie was very well done. Maybe it was the atmosphere...there was an overwhelming majority of 14-18 year-olds in a packed theater. When the jump-out-at-you scary parts happened we had our fair share of shouts, etc. But I could definitely tell that this was a well crafted story based on a good book. It wasn't too funny, too horror, too serious, but a well balanced story that touched on several emotions throughout the story. I had no expectations of really enjoying it going in, but I was pleasantly surprised by it and enjoyed the movie.

What's going on in this thread?

I never really know what's going on in any thread. I just post a bunch of stuff, kind of winging it

When talking about development as a dominion player, I think it is important to realize that different people learn different ways. When I started playing I really didn't read anything in the articles section, I just played a lot of games and posted/read in the game reports section.

My growth as a player was learning how to play by experience, rather than being taught through articles, etc. Now, don't get me wrong, I picked up on a lot of that just by spending time on the forum, but i wouldn't say it was how I got to where I am as a player. I find it much easier to learn through experience. But some people learn through articles. So, "depends on the person" I guess. Haha

All that to say, I think there is significantly more streaming (analogous to YouTube videos that used to be posted more) than there ever has been. The live interaction with the game may very well contribute to the decrease in articles. Take the "cage matches" that occur. Take seprix's recent article on lurker. He had a sample kingdom, it was challenged, played out live (streamed on twitch), and corrected. That is the evolution of learning dominion.

But there are people who don't learn that way, and I think you are totally right. Articles are essential in their development. I am not entirely sure what point I was trying to make, but yes. You are totally right.  We may be losing out on an audience that needs/wants those articles. And also no, learning how to play dominion has evolved and reaching people it would not have simply through articles

I think that it has very low moral status because it has f*gg*t in it

I'm always confused when people use censor characters in a completely legible word online.

Yeah, if you are concerned about language you should just use moat      . spoilers

All I see is that if I post in this thread I get at least 4 respect. I like it

...that would be Mint, not Mine?

(I feel by pointing this out I may be overlooking some obscure meta-joke.)

You know how people go through phases? Like, maybe you were in chess club for a year or two, then you did something else, etc. f.ds went through a "mine/mint" joke phase similar to                                         moat.                                       . Some people still haven't grown out of it.

Hasn't this thread been made somewhere else before? Meh. Too lazy to look it up.

I joined the forum may 2013, was playing on isotropic a while before that. (I joined the forum to play in gokodom) I think I had a good 6 months on iso before it got shut down.

I think sauna/avanto is more important than the scrying pool split, as that is your only source of +action. Also think it is important to have count so you can continue to gain a copper to trash with a forager for +buy after you have trashed down. But not really as essential to use as a trasher.

Forager/silver might actually work well as an opening. Then pick up a second forager and a sauna on T3/T4.

Or prebook Sanderson.

I would say this is an acceptable option, but Sanderson has his own book problem. He has the stormlight archives to finish. And that will take a while. I would trust him to finish for GRRM though. He likes having multiple projects at a time

Now, GRRM, I am trusting you won't do this, but I don't mind you taking your time to finish the books. No need to rush through story lines to finish.

Just don't go all-out wheel of time on us and not ever get around to finishing.

Like, 5/2 I go upgrade first over rebuild. I would have to play it out against someone to see if it actually works

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Silly boards you got from randomisers

Fishing Village, Philosopher's Stone, Fortress, Plaza, Worker's Village, Rebuild, Royal Seal, Upgrade, Hoard, Forge [Potion, Colony]
Heh. Is that at all interesting, or does Turbo Rebuild just crush everything in sight?

How you get to rebuild can be interesting. Haven't looked too carefully, but fortress/upgrade could be very nice in getting duchies/rebuilds. Once you get ahead probably try to pile provinces before your opponent catches you, no need to go all the way to colonies (depending on how the game goes)

I deleted 180 gigs worth of stuff.

I do that fairly routinely.

Today at work I received over 10,000 emails within a half hour.

that seems excessive

Ah. And I've had the bug where jumping to the first unread post takes me to the second post so that I have to scroll up to see the first unread post.

I suppose it's time to start Random Stuff IV.

We (as in, a mod) should sticky all the random stuff threads. It's a part of f.ds that everyone needs to know about.

And why can't GRRM finish the books already?
This. So much this.

It's this phenomenon that happens occasionally when playing people who think they are better than they are and can only lose if they have bad luck.

You did get fortunate playing witch on T3 rather than T4 (which made it miss the shuffle for him). But that isn't the end of the world. I wouldn't advise going familiar here after opening witch, but meh. It worked. You gained an advantage and exploited that advantage. Which is good play

What?  Boondock Saints was completely realistic and totally safe in all gun usage.  Haha
