(To explain the joke further: You don't know which Hex do deal out before playing Werewolf, so arguing which one is better is pointless)

I could have discarded Werewolf for Arena points but instead I gave my opponent Miserable.

You are right Forest Gift doesn't work, I missed that part. But Mountain+Earth Gift works and should easily solve this issue.

I had planned something like this for a long time. Glad you are doing it now. Nice.

Few suggestions:

Not sure what exactly the limits of your series are but I would expand it to talk about main combos build around a certain card. Like video 2: Market Square. You could show off Hermit/MS or Apprentice/MS.
In the same vein you could show off Double Tactician decks with Tactician/Vault and Tactician/Black Market for example.
You could show off Bridge combos, e.g. Royal Carriage/Bridge, Native Village/Bridge and King's Court/Bridge in general.
Same thing with Highway, like Highway/Market Square or similar.
You could show off Golden Decks, e.g. Bishop ones like the Bishop/Chapel one or the Bishop/Fortress one.
Interesting are also Alt VP decks like with Beggar/IGG/Count/Ironworks together with Gardens/Silk Road/Duke or Trader/Masterpiece with Feodum.
Other intesting combos to show off Mandarin/Capital Golden Deck, Lurker/Hunting Grounds, Scavenger/Stash (not online unfortunately) and PhilStone/Herbalist and maybe Mint/Fool's Gold.

Something I would suggest is to alway to talk about Synergies and Counters. You did talk about counters in the Counting House videos. Synergies are kind of rare with combos, but talking about what makes a combo even stronger is certainly worth it, like how much better Counting House/Travelling Fair is with Colonies and how it explodes if you add a Bank to the mix.

Like I said, not sure how loose you want to have your combos definition, but if you run out of stuff, you could always talk about certain deck types that you play quite often, like how to play Ambassador Tennis, how to play with Rebuild and its synergies (Tunnel/Rogue etc.), how to play Draw-up-to X decks like Hamlet/Watchtower, how to play a Multi-Possession Deck and which cards to avoid adding to your deck when Possession is on the board, how to play with the Traveller lines and which cards combo with them.

I either enjoy deck building as part of a bigger game as in Mage Knight or in a total different way like in Kashgar. Both excellent games.

The only "Dominion clone" that I quite enjoyed is Friday a solitaire deck builder filler game.

I also quite enjoyed Automobiles which is a Bag Building game.

Yes, give me some time. I need to change some code for that

Other Games / Zachtronics Games
« on: January 08, 2018, 03:51:15 am »
Who else is playing Zachtronics games? For those who don't know. They are all puzzle games from one company with the target audience of programmers or those who want to learn programming.

I recently discovered Opus Magnum and the puzzles are so awesome. Optimizing and getting better scores is really a lot of fun. Now I reached the point where solving the puzzles is already quite a feat, let alone optimizing them. I avoided spoilers so far, but would love to compare scores with you guys. PM me if you play it so we can add each other as a friend on steam.

Which other games from Zachtronics would you guys recommend next? Shenzhen I/O is maybe a bit too programmy for my taste on first look. Can anyone confirm? What about the other ones?

That why ordering or rating is recommended. Matching is probably more fun, but yeah it takes a lot of time.

Last 2 days guys. Make sure to finish your lists and MARK THEM AS FINISHED.

Don't use the copy feature for now. It seems that the web hoster can't handle the load that happen when doing that.

Dominion General Discussion / The Dominion Cards Lists 2017 Edition
« on: December 07, 2017, 02:48:02 am »
Five years have already passed since the first Dominion Card Lists were compiled, the skill level of all players raised and a lot of new knowledge is gained. Again a new expansion was released and also the second Edition came out, so everyone is eager to learn how the new cards rank. That means it's time for the 2017 edition of the Dominion Card Lists.

What do you have to do?
If you like to contribute, go to http://www.qvist.de/dommesh for the best cards list, http://www.qvist.de/dommesh_fav for your favourite cards and http://www.qvist.de/dommesh_art for the best card art.
This video from last year walks you basically through how the web app works or just read on:


I'm not the best web designer to make it look nice, but it works. You have 3 options to submit your list. You can 1.) compare two cards at a time or 2.) order the cards all at once in a big list or 3.) rate them with numerical values. If you do the first option, the app will tell you when you're done and no new "card duel" is available anymore. Internally option 1 and 2 is stored in one list and option 3 in a separate list. There are 2 links for exporting one list to another, so you can for example first give each card a numerical value for a rough estimate and then copy the list and fine tune it by either ordering them or do the remaining comparisms. I didn't include a registration or anything like that for this simple app. You can just login by your ShuffleIT name and any password you like. The next time you login you just have to remember the password you've set on your first login. I expect that nobody will trick me by using a user name of anyone else. If you have no ShuffleIT account, just use a user name of your choice. If you don't know an expansion very well you can choose to leave it out. But be sure that if you want to include a card of a specific expansion, you have to rank all cards of the expansion. There are no restriction with Promo cards, so if you don't know e.g. Summon very well, you can leave it out.

To clarify as there is much confusion apparently: You can vote in any of the 3 methods. Therefore a S, A, B, C, D, E, F voting works as long as you convert that to a 7 to 1 rating in the "Rate" method. Also: Don't forget to mark your lists as finished when you are.

Cards are only counted if they are kingdom cards. If you want to look up the card texts and also the last year's lists, just go to our wiki. http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com
If you submit your list, you also agree that I may give this to third party, like theory or rrenaud. If you don't agree send me a PM.

If you've submitted last year, I will not take your last submission into account.

I included extra lists for Prizes, individual Knights, Ruins, Events, Landmarks, Boons and Hexes. These are optional, you don't have to rank them if you don't want.
For Hexes, the "best" one is the one that is the most harmful.
You can also if you want rank all the kingdom cards in one big list. This is also optional as this takes a lot of time.
Dismantle is not included yet as most are unfamiliar with it.

Usual disclaimer: This list should cause discussion not hassle. Of course it's difficult to compare some of the cards because pretty much every card has some situations where it shines and situations where it doesn't. This isn't a scientific list, just a compiled list of the community's opinion of the best cards.

What else?
Submission deadline is the 31st of Dececember 11:59pm UTC.
Each card will get a percentage value based on the rank. So your best card gets 100% and your worst gets 0%. This will result in a compiled list of all of your lists.
As I don't have much time this year, results will get presented by a group of people with the upside of the results being presented in a much shorter time frame. Thanks for all the volunteers.
If you encounter some bugs, just send me a PM and I'll fix them ASAP.

Let's see how many submissions we get this time. The more we get the better the rankings will be. I can't wait to get your submissions. If you have any questions, ask them here.
