Variants and Fan Cards / Re: Kudasai's Random Dominion Cards
« on: Today at 07:27:23 am »
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.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: What is the best knight to inherit?

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.

General Discussion / Re: TV shows
« on: March 25, 2018, 03:14:50 pm »
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.

when it's late in the game and you draw two and you're like should I get an estate, first check if there is Baths

And then fail to notice that all the tokens are already gone because your opponent noticed baths way before you did.

Obvious silly case: They're in the Black Market.
Edge case to the edge case: Peasant in the Black Market, no +Buy on the board.

Add Museum to boot.

I find Teacher most ignorable when Peasant isn't in the kingdom.

Oh, glad this is public now, I can update my fan cards this wording if I ever get around to it.
There was playtesting for second edition specifically or something?
No, I just mentioned it to ThetaSigma once while we were exchanging card templates. As the guy who mocks up hundreds of fan cards, I thought he might find it interesting.

And it's been bugging me since: You know your cards have a problem that you need to change, but you can't change it now, and you don't want to go back and change it.

So, like Port then?

T1 Open Expedition. T2 Play Cursed Gold, 6 Copper, Baker, Borrow for $11 (or alternately Alms for Villa instead of Borrow).

How do you open Expedition if you aren't drawing any Estates/Shelters on T2?

Good Catch. If you use Alms for Villa you can open 2C+Villa > Expedition T1 and 6C+CG+Baker+Villa > Colony T2.

T1 Open Expedition with 2 Copper and Alms for Villa. T2 Play Cursed Gold, 6 Copper, Baker, and Alms for Villa for $11.

Edit: Whoops, good catch SamE. You can't Have a 3/4 open, you need to use Alms for Villa twice.

I thought ehunt was replying to himself at first.

This really confused me because I didn't remember commenting until I noticed it's just that SCSN and I have the same avatar. It's not even like it's that odd a choice.

Aaaaand it's come full circle!
