If we're talking about problems with this forum, how many accounts is this for you now?

It's getting hard to count the banned ones.

Oh man, this is a good trivia question. I remember Tristan, then Weety4, then I go blank. Lemme research to find the definitive list.
  • Tristan
  • Weety4
  • Q
  • yougotsomeseriousissues
I feel like there was a fifth one recently though, anybody have any ideas?

That distinction, by the way, is a factoid that has been relevant to my life exactly one time.

You all totally missed this one, guys. A "factoid" is not a little fact, it's something that seems like a fact but isn't.

Not necessarily, most dictionaries give a secondary (in some cases primary) definition of factoid as "a brief or trivial item of news or information" or some variation thereof. That seems to be the meaning Screwyioux was going for.

What about a permanent cost reduction?

Well, there's Prince and Bridge. I mean, at this point the answer to "permanent X" is Prince + X.

"If they don't catch you, it's valid" is a crap rationalisation, I think that's pretty obvious. That being said, if people agree on it beforehand it's cool. And I'm personally lenient on some of the rules in games like this, LOVE for GLOVE doesn't sound that bad to me, I wouldn't mind in some contexts.


Also, this reminds me of a question that came up when playing Taboo recently, if somebody says "United States" when "United Nations" is under taboo, is that legal? I was arguing that it wasn't and I'm pretty sure I was right, but I'm curious if anybody else disagrees with me.

I've played it a couple times, as with most games I really don't pick it up often because of a lack of people to play it with. The game itself is pretty fun, but most of the enjoyment comes from building your fleet. Also, the game is a black hole for money so I'm a little glad I didn't get into it.

And if you want proof that "intelligent design" is utter bullshit, look no further than these two systems and ask which the world looks more like!

Those be fighting words

Agora looks bad. Festival is already kinda meh, and this just seems like a worse version. Villages + Silver gainers don't usually go well together.

Army looks horribly broken to me. It's not clear what blockade is trying to do, I reread it three times and I'm still not sure how it's supposed to work, it clearly needs a rewording.

Here's how I interpret Blockade: At the start of the game, both players secretly name 3 action cards, and their positions in the deck, i.e. "The 10th lab", "The 3rd Baron". When the 10th lab in the pile is gained or the 3rd baron is, the player gets VP equal to what number card it was. So 10 VP for calling that the labs will empty.

That's a good point. I like you're thinking, but you can just buy a bunch of villages before you do inheritance.

Nah, just inherrit Village, that's much easier.

Banquet/Triumph
It was my opponent who found the interaction, unfortunately...
But it only works if you have +buy.

True, but at least one source of +Buy is common enough in most games.

Charity costs nothing?

The cost was TBD. Seeing how long the thread has been dead, I doubt there will be one officially determined anytime soon.

Soon to come:

- edge cases
- more edge cases
- edge cases involving loan
- someone will explain why loan is underrated

Neat puzzles that seemed easy when you thought of them

Or more accurately:

"Interesting card interaction you dreamed up that was reverse-engineered into a puzzle"

You can read up on infinite loops here: http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=18378.msg752424#msg752424. They're all pretty nifty and most of them can give you an unbounded amount of .

I'm guessing the challenge is to design a kingdom with the highest maximum finite amount of money? There are plenty of loops that can go infinite.

It's not about difficulty guys, it's about length.  Nobody feels like starting a new topic just for a weird convoluted interaction problem.

Doesn't need the , see Charm.
I wouldn't like to change Investment's coin icon until I know they changed Horn of Plenty, too.

Ha! I feel vindicated. Too bad it doesn't matter anymore...

Feast yer eyes on the high-res Coffers mat:



Between Ryan Laukat's art, the font, and the scroll text boxes I would swear it came from a Red Raven game if I didn't know better.

(First of all, this has been bugging me for a while, it should be +1 Bonus, not +1 bonus. Capitalize the word.)

I like your take on LaLight's weather cards. What I would suggest though is having about half of them be "Clear Skies" or so that has no effect. Constant changing effects every turn will make the game far too unpredictable and probably too much to handle, whereas the occasional scattered effect would be nice. Also, maybe have it so you can see ahead so nothing comes upon you too fast. And probably try to keep the effects simple and not game-changing, like the Vanilla Boni ones could just have one bonus apiece, a free Lost City/Grand Market might be too much to give.

See, I really want to watch Black Mirror but I'm really turned off by the fact that it's TV-MA. The show sounds good but I don't need all that crap with it.
What's the problem? that it's too dark?

Well, I don't particularly prefer dark things but I don't always mind them. I haven't researched it thoroughly, but I know there is plenty of language and occasionally sexual content (explicit or not). Unless there's a really good reason, I watched the Trials and Nurmeburg, it's not worth it.

Also, I don't want this to devolve into a discussion on my standards for why I wouldn't want to watch a show with half a dozen f bombs.
