Dominion General Discussion / Some ideas for the Strategy Blog
« on: October 07, 2017, 09:31:07 am »
I'm glad that the strategy blog is back, some ideas for things that are littered through the forums that have helped me and I think would be a good fit for the blog:

-Annotated games

I've been recently playing through some of the old annotated games and some that have been posted on the forums by myself against a bot or some random person. The notes and ideas presented help me get an understanding of various strategies and power levels between cards.

-An article on the strengths and importance of attacks or the viability of weak engines vs BM decks

meandering mercury made a great post in this thread: about how long certain decks make the game, and it literally changed how I thought about Dominion and helped me think about timing. A longer article that details certain boards, and how different types of decks run at different speeds, would be fantastic.

-Kingdom of the Week Challenges

Release a Kingdom of the week like the dominion subreddit, usually tailored around unique challenges, strategies, and/or learning ideas and then post analysis of the kingdom within the next few days. (Example: Post a Kingdom on Tuesday, post an analysis on Thursday). Similar to the first suggestion, this'll help work through strategies, but instead of where the annotated games were more exposition, this is closer to exercises.

Nicholas Tran - draws Silver, Develop, Ambassador, Possession, Potion

---------- Seprix: turn 20 ----------
Seprix - duration Lighthouse
Seprix - plays Possession

---------- Nicholas Tran: turn 20 [possessed] ----------
Nicholas Tran - plays Ambassador
Nicholas Tran - reveals Possession
Nicholas Tran - returns Possession to the Supply
Seprix - gains Possession
---------- Nicholas Tran: turn 20 ----------

TL;DR I sent the opponent's only Possession via Ambassador (on a lucky collision for me, not for him) back into the pile on my first Possession play, he immediately resigned.

Purely speculating, but sounds like your opponent should have Develop'ed away their Ambassador(s) once they were thin.

Absolutely. I don't know if he had Ambassador collisions, and he pretty much never was thin, but he had Lighthouse up every turn pretty much, so he couldn't have been that junked.

I'm just learning the game. I mostly resigned because you were sorta a jerk in chat :(
