Rules Questions / Re: Inheritance bug in shuffle it?
« on: September 14, 2018, 07:04:37 pm »
It's correct that the +1 token can go on that pile. But your opponent's Estates should not get that bonus, because the Estates are not from that pile. (Any cards that are from that pile, get the bonus of course.)

I don't know if this works correctly on Dominion Online, I'm just saying.

I believe I've tried this once and it failed to work, as it should have.  Silly me.

Does anyone else get a Hitchhiker’s guide to the Galaxy vibe from the description?

Have you not read all of the other box descriptions?  They all have a touch of Adams's humor.  Only one of them involves a life-size statue made of baklava, however.

Hearthstone / Re: Boomsday Project

None of what any of you ahve said made any sense, which suggests I've been away from Hearthstone for too long.  Probably a good thing, that.

6. Exorcist brings 4 uniques (note that ghost is always brought by an unrecoverable treasure and you cant waste a slot on masq, and the kingdom pile with it is only 1/3 of a unique effectively)

Why not get it from a Vampire instead?  You only need one of them.

I am unsure what you are asking? Vampires can neither gain ghosts, nor can it recover a haunted mirror from the trash, nor can it take a haunted mirror from the opponent. Vampire as a pile only adds two uniques to the count. That's an easy bar to hit with any number of piles.

My point was that you can only gain ghosts via exorcist or haunted mirror. Gaining one via exorcist also allows you access to two other unique piles: imp and will-o-wisp. With the exception of gaining will-o-wisps from cards with associated heirlooms (So fool and...? I think it might just be fool), no way of gaining those brings more than 2 piles to the table so exorcist is the most efficient way.

The other way of getting ghost is truly bad. You lose the treasure so there was no change in unique numbers. Or you include Masq as a pile which lowers the average uniques/pile. And even so the pile that brings that heirloom is a card worth 2vp so its effectively only 1/3 of a unique.

Oh, I misunderstood what you were saying.  I thought you meant you'd need to trash a Gold to get a Ghost. (Most common Ghost play with Exorcist.)

Variants and Fan Cards / Re: Royal Seal fix

I feel like this is a reasonable place to say "What's wrong with Royal Seal, they can't all be the best $5 ever."

How would you feel if the next dominion expansion entirely consisted of nerfed versions of existing cards that you ignore in most games? You just wasted your money. Card quality matters.

In addition to being bad, it's boring.

Royal Seal isn't a nerfed version of anything.

I don't know why people are pretending that engines with treasure payload are rare.
It's still jarring to hear the pros have gone out of their way to avoid Silver and even Gold

I mean, sometimes/often it's a good idea.  And sometimes it's terrible or impossible.  The pros have gotten good at distinguishing the two!

Ruined Shepherd: +1 Action, Discard any number of Victory cards, revealing them. +2 Cards per card discarded.

Shepherd is not Scout.

Puzzles and Challenges / Re: The Boon challenge

I'm no good at these challenges, so consider my 16 as an initial lower bound:

6 copies of Druid are set aside with 6 copies of Ghost.  You have 4 copies of Druid in hand.  One of the set-aside Boons is +Action.
I can say that the Boon in my solution is not set aside by Druid, and my lower bound is higher. (I think 16 is actually the maximum number of times you can play Druid with Nocturne only, unless I missed some shenanigans involving Necromancer).

Yes, I'm pretty sure 16 is the upper bound on what my solution could do, so like I said, a complete lower bound for any other solution.

General Discussion / Re: Aging
« on: June 28, 2018, 01:39:25 pm »
I already experienced that in the military since I entered a few years later than most other people so a lot of the corporals were younger than me. It wasn't a very big difference though since it was only by like 1-2 years.

The aspect of aging that I'm the most worried about is hearing. Just a while ago, I was shocked to realize that my mom literally doesn't hear anything above 8 kHz and then I was further shocked to realize that it's normal for people of her age.

What was that? Speak up, I can't hear you.

(Actually my hearing problems are neurological, not age-related, alas)

Rules Questions / Re: summon + death cart vs. summon + nomad camp
« on: June 26, 2018, 08:06:48 pm »
Obviously the best idea instead of the lose-track rule would have been to create a second discard pile that contains only cards you gained this turn, which you're allowed to look through, but have to put into your regular discard pile if you shuffle.

There's no way that could become confusing, right?

Whereas you can't tell your friends, "I like Sheep, let's play with it," because there is no card Sheep.

*surreptitiously places pile of Sheep cards from Catan next to the kingdom piles*

At least we have Goat and Shepherd!

Thief and Pirate Ship are... not widely regarded as game-distortingly strong.

But Thief could cause exceptionally-rare contrived stalemates that forced Donald to add the "whoever starves first loses" rule!

Sims for pure big money suggest bidding 17

Out of interest, this was BM vs BM, right?

But engine vs BM there are two possibilities.  If BM gets Province first, what does engine bid, and vice versa?

I always bid a non-integer, non-fraction number.  People think I'm irrational when I do it.

how Puerto Rico magically had Chuts and 3Sug.

What are those?  I've never seen those in relation to Puerto Rico.

And so that newer people who are scratching their heads about the bacon thing don't think we're all just crazy:

B) Would bump it out of the bottom 10%

But then we would have a different bottom 10%. Wouldn't we have to fix that next?

I feel like there's a bacon analogy here somewhere.

I had ten strips of bacon yesterday...

Would you say that one of them was the worst of the ten?  And was it still tasty?
