Tide Pools is also interesting with Duration draw. You can fail to discard before you choose to activate your Wharf/Haunted Woods etc, so some of the downside is mitigated. Like, a deck with 6 Tide Pools and 4 HWs starts with a hand of six cards and gets to play 3 double labs per turn. It that worth it? It sounds pretty good. Maybe someone can do the math and prove me wrong.

I mean, smaller setups are also a thing if the community really is shrinking.

I predict that Trade Route will be removed (no need for coin tokens) and we will get more +VP cards to make use of the VP tokens. Although that raises the question of whether the update pack will have tokens in it. Probably not because it's assuming you already have Prosperity 1E.

You can get a lot more with Overlord, BoM, and Necromancer on Voyage.

I just realized, I think Lich is the first way to gain OGE and Hovel.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Is Rebuild ever fun?
« on: April 15, 2022, 10:38:51 am »
I personally have never played with Rebuild in person, since it's on my ban list in my randomizer app. It feels like it would a lot slower, as all digging cards are. For people who have done it, was it bearable?

Overall, I don't hate the card as much as I did maybe 6 years ago when I first got into the game. But I would still rather play a game without it than with it, so it's on my banlist online as well.

I gave you the mod robe on discord, so feel free to start adding channels.

Also, the rules post says there is no plurality exile, but the setup post says town cannot no-exile, which seem to be in conflict.

I've updated the vote count spreadsheet with an option for final vote counts, including flips.  The link is now in my signature.  Would people be interested in a short guide to the spreadsheet?

That was exactly the intention. The idea is that you draw your hand and then decide if you want to take another buy phase. The concept came from taking an extra turn where you start in your buy phase, but I thought it was simpler to just give you another buy phase in the current turn (because it avoids questions like "does this skip the start of my turn" etc). But I guess these questions show it should be more clear that it's after drawing your new hand.

I've made all the channels visible so people can read the Mafia QT and others.

how do support cards work with stuff like Voyage? do they count as one of the three cards you can play?

Yep, you play them from your hand.

Wow, it's been a long time!  But I was inspired by some new mechanics, and I wanted to make more cards.  I still like the idea of Support cards, and think they work well with the Allies-style split piles.  Here's a rough idea, the Puppets:



Quote
Puppeteer
Support/Puppet - $2
The host card is now an Action in addition to its other types. You may rotate the puppets.
Quote
Marionette
Reserve/Puppet - $3
Put this on your Tavern mat.

At the end of your turn, you may call this to return to your buy phase and +1 buy.
Quote
Puppet Opera
Duration/Puppet - $4
At the start of your next turn, you may play any number of treasures from your hand, and then draw until you have 5 cards in your hand. Until then, when you play a Support card, the host card is a Treasure in addition to its other types.
Quote
Backdrop
Victory/Puppet - $5
%2
+4 Cards

The idea is that you need to line up the later puppets with the Puppeteer.  It's probably really weak, but I think something could be done with this.

The second one is a Treasure-Duration, which is cool.

I've made the speccy and Mod QT public.  If anyone wants me to not make their channel public, let me know, otherwise I'll make everything public in a few days.

Here is the spreadsheet.  The options under config should be pretty self-explanatory; I added some new options that aren't in the original.  You can make a copy of it for yourself if you want to use it, although I might add some more features.  I was trying to add support for making someone a double-voter, but in the end I just did it manually.

Also, could people tell me if they can't see the arrows in that last vote count?  If it looks like boxes to anyone, I'll change it back to the ASCII arrows that were there before.

Also, being a mod was really fun. If anyone wants to use the Google sheet I used for vote counts, I'll clean it up and post it. It was adapted from this spreadsheet, but I had to change a bunch to get rid of the l-word and make it work with our urls and customs.

So, a few things:

1. Scum played a really good game here. Even with the best hatches, town would have had trouble. Nothing else I say should detract from that. Being amongst everyone's top town reads was entirely their doing.
2. Math hatched N1 as the tree stump. I knew from testing that the tree stump hatching N1 (and then getting endgamed, no less) was bad for town. I thought the setup favored town enough in other ways and this wouldn't be a problem. If I were to do it again, I wouldn't have the tree stump role. It was the last remnant of an earlier version of the setup where different roles had different triggers for hatching, but it's not really interesting and gives town too much of a disadvantage in the hatches.
3. Any game where scum kills the cop N1 is going to be hard for town to win. What makes it worse is that that was town's only useful hatch N1 (as the other was a tree stump). And that's one of the risks of this setup, not giving PRs a chance to play differently so as to avoid the NK. On the flip side, it makes it impossible for scum to PR hunt D1, so I'm not sure if that's really that good for scum.

I wonder if we should ask theory to change the name of this section? Something like "Forum Feedback" might be more clear. There's probably a better wording I'm not thinking of.

Yeah, I still believe that the only types with intrinsic rules are Action, Treasure, Night and maybe Duration.

I don't think that's true. For instance, the type Looter has the intrinsic rule "Ruins are in the supply for this game"; Liaison means "everyone starts with a Favor and you have to choose an Ally".

I'm not sure that that's really an intrinsic rule for Looter though. Nothing would be lost if Looter weren't a type. They're just cards that give Ruins, but other cards that give out certain cards don't have a special type. You don't need, for example, a special type for "cards that give Spoils" to know that you need to have Spoils in the kingdom when you have those cards

The difference is that Ruins are in the supply. Looters couldn't give out Ruins without an intrinsic rule because there would be no ruins. That's not the case for Spoils or Horses; they're theoretically always there but don't matter if nothing gains them.

To clarify, there are 7 alive, and it takes 4 to exile.
