I'm guessing there will be one for large and small deck sizes.

This is terrible since my local gamestore always has board game specials on long weekends (a few days before the 25th in this case).

I still don't get the concept of having a favorite color. That's like having a favorite musical note or a favorite letter of the alphabet. It's not really anything on its own, it only becomes something meaningful when it's combined with something else (like a shape, or another color).

I had a blog once on people's favorite letters of the alphabet:

Empires Previews / Re: Empires Previews #1: Debt
« on: May 09, 2016, 04:49:41 pm »
After thinking about it, it's pretty clear that overall Possession is getting a buff, just based on the information we already have.

Yes, you can get into debt to shut down a turn of Possession. If that is the only reason you are getting into debt for, you might have some problems with the deck.

Imagine an engine that uses capital to make a bunch of money and then plans to pay it all off on the next turn. It would have to be reliable enough to not be a defense against Possession to be effective as an engine (a crazy sentence, but I think the flow is there).

With empires it is now possible to become the villa idiot.

And the City Quarter idiot doesn't have quite the same ring to it...

Scout goes best in Prosperity, with Goons.

Hoepfully with a new online developer, they can start to modify some of the terrible cards.

It seems it would need to be a 2-cost kingdom card based on the comments above.

For flavor, the name will have to change to fit the remodel theme rather than the ruin theme.

I like Repurpose, but it's not actually a word (tell that to my board of directors). The other option is Refurbish.

Repurpose is a real word...

phpBB underlines it in red... If phpBB doesn't know it... it ain't worth knowing.

The guy on the right has a degenerative brain disease and is not planning on paying the loan back. Although, Rocky has had a degenerative brain disease since 1990 and he's still ticking!

This seems like a great place to post my personal ad:

There's a cafe a few towns over that plays diddily-dee Irish music on every other Wednesday. I will drink espresso, you can have local craft beers. Afterwards, we will go to a hockey game. I claim it's important, since you are visiting Canada. You say "we aren't in Canada, we are in Siberia". I realize you are right. This has been a dream all along. Now, quick, we must escape the beet army. Except you aren't you anymore, but a parallel timeline version of me. It seems I was at the wellspring of my life. The Butterfly Effect was a lie all along! Time travel is permissive, the great man theory of history holds. As long as you don't kill Napoleon or someone, you can do whatever you want. While at the wellspring, I made every mother and grandmother in my family tree a bit more ... eager. I ended up being born 130 years earlier. Now our date is impossible, as I am stuck at the Industrial Revolution and you are stuck at the Global Civil War. I leave this message in a bottle, hoping you will find it. Then you wake up... I am the man of your dreams.

No matter what game I play, people right from turn 1 tend to attack me, even if its a game I've never played before. I rarely win Catan for this reason, but still have a reputation for being a winner.

YMYOSL applies to Catan as well as Dominion.  The problem is that the shuffle luck in Dominion  has enough game time to equalize, whereas roll luck in Catan does not.

Roll luck in Catan has such a small impact compared to shuffle luck in Dominion that it doesn't need that much time, either. Like I said, I play a lot of Catan and I haven't lost a single game in years.

Nobody gangs up on you? You must be quite the charmer.

The architecture was designed with a focus on online play, not offline or pass-n-play. Personally, I'd love offline play. It may happen at some point. But it doesn't make sense right now for the business. [...] So, offline won't happen any time soon. You know what? It is OK to play Ascension when you don't have internet, ...

It's not OK to play Ascension when you don't have internet.  Ascension sucks.

I've never played Ascension, but this is the only proper response of a true Dominion believer. That MF guy is sprouting blasphemic nonsense and should, according to custom, be burned on the stakes.

Dominion: Where Witches and Mountebanks get the utmost respect, but any outsider gets burned alive!!!

Variants and Fan Cards / 2-cost weak Remodel (formerly Ruin-Fixer Upper)

Trash a card, gain a card with the same cost

I envision it as a counter to Swindler mostly but it might be too powerful to be a ruin.

EDIT: The card is now a 2-cost kingdom card entitled Repurpose or Refurbish.

I feel like if he would have gone with a real company (i.e. EA Games)

Really?  Really?  You pick EA Games as your standard of a professional company?  The most hated "professional" game-making company in the business?

I'm out of touch with software... it's the only company I could think of that makes games. I'm not sure why people hate them but if Dominion was a pogo game, it would probably turn out better.

EA destroyed SimCity.  That's enough reason to hate them right there.  But as I understand it they've also destroyed a bunch of other good franchises.

What is "pogo"?

It's EA board and card games' website.

EDIT: removed snarky comment that added nothing.

Has DXV ever commented on why he chose Goko to make the official implementation? I feel like if he would have gone with a real company (i.e. EA Games) they would have offered him less money for the license but produced a much more solid game.

It's really disappointing that the game feels so luxe (extra randomizer cards, lots of tokens and playmats, quality box for storing cards) yet the app feels so cheap. It's like if instead of randomizer cards the game came with advertisements (or even worse - time-limited coupons) and instead of slots in the box, everything just jumbled together and if there were only 10 kingdom cards to start and all the graphics were crappy xeroxes but it was still the same price it would feel like the app.

This is truly a failure of capitalism here. I think the reason it's online only is so you can't hack unlock the game. God forbid somebody play the campaigns without paying. Raise your hand if you bought the game for campaigns...

Although, the new update does have new art for the campaigns - instead of the same map for every act, now there are real maps. You still can't observe the maps without the splotchy shields all over them, and they still make no sense (rivers don't flow downstream, they bisect land only).

What is Gold?  Is that kind of like Scout and Royal Seal?

It's a card that, strictly speaking, passes the silver test.

Mic Qsenoch's youtube channel has all of his league matches in the A-league against other top players, which makes it a particularly valuable resource. https://www.youtube.com/user/MicQsenoch/videos

The opportunity cost of watching videos is way too high, since I have a deck with good reading speed.
