Dominion General Discussion / Re: is royal seal underrated?
« on: June 24, 2018, 08:33:18 pm »
Itd be fine at $4.
It would, except, as Donald X once said, "look, I can't make a Treasure that gives $2, has some other effect that is always beneficial, and costs $4; that's just better than Silver, and people by Silver for $4 all the time".

And then he made Delve.
The main problem with Silver-with-a-bonus for $4 (for games where people want Silver and aren't gaining it with a Silver-gainer) is that the pile just automatically empties. It's also not great that then you have that bonus in your deck, but didn't care about it at all, weren't making a decision there.

Delve has neither issue; it hits the Silver pile rather than a new 10-card pile, and those Silvers have no other abilities.

I don't know. If Royal Seal cost $4, would players drain the pile in most 2-player games it appeared? I tend to think not. The top-decking is not an ability that stacks, for one thing... i.e., having multiple Royal Seals in play confers no additional benefit.

The only episode I've seen was Nosedive. It did not make me want to see more episodes.

I think my favorite think about Nosedive was President Allison Taylor's cameo.

Okay, I've seen them all. Black Mirror episodes, ranked:

19) The National Anthem
18) White Bear
17) Playtest
16) Men Against Fire
15) Arkangel
14) Metalhead
13) Be Right Back
12) Shut Up and Dance
11) The Waldo Moment
10) Black Museum
9) Nosedive
8.) Million Merits
7) The Entire History of You
6) White Christmas
5) Crocodile
4) Hated In The Nation
3) San Junipero
2) Hang the DJ
1) USS Callister


Reading reviews online, it seems I liked Crocodile quite a bit better than other people. Also, I don't know what it says about me that my three favorites are three of the only ones with broadly "happy" endings.

I liked that Black Museum added a potential "shared universe" element to many of the stories, perhaps even all of them... although I think that comic book might be suggesting 15 Million Merits is fictional, even within the Black Mirror universe. Which makes sense, since it's definitely the one that fits with the others the least.

Several had premises I thought were fascinating, but then went in boring or predictable directions: Arkangel and The Entire History of You are probably the most egregious offenders.

I just watched San Junipero and Hated in the Nation. Those were pretty good episodes.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Ambassador and When to Buy Curses

I would say that I buy Curse in the majority of games where I buy Ambassador.

Governor is great. Why do people even complain about Governor? They can't all be the most straightforward $5 card ever.

Dominion League / Re: Season 27 - Signups

I would like to join.

I am technically re-joining the league, because I did play a season, but it was so long ago I don't remember which one it was.

I like that Skulk comes with a Gold. Having a Gold in your deck makes up for the lack of +coin provided by Skulk.

Where have you been, man? Golds are basically curses, with occasional utility as tfb fuel.

What can I say, Im old school. I was not buying Scouts before you were born, son.

The Hexes are more hurtful than the Boons are beneficial, though. Or at least it seems that way to me.
Yes, but the Hex-dealers suck (apart from Vampire), and the Boon-givers are all kinda good.

Skulk seems good enough.

Unrelated, Moldugas are awesome.

In fact, I am glad I left the Gerudo region for last. The whole thing is fantastic, and I wish other regions had received the amount of attention that one has. Gerudo town in particular oozes charm.

No Gerudo valley theme, alas...

Lack of Gerudo valley theme really killed it for me, sadly. I think the Rito village is my favorite village-ish area, but they don't give you nearly enough reasons to keep coming back to it.

I got the bike!

I agree the new Shrines were of much higher caliber, as was the new dungeon and boss fight.

Incidentally I had never played a Zelda game previously, and loved BotW.  I love Kakariko Village.  I would totally live there.

And yet the game only lets you buy property in Hateno Village, sigh.

The Zelda location I would most want to live in is probably Skyloft from Skyward Sword, though.

The wife and I just started watching Electric Dreams, which is available on Amazon. I'm surprised it hasn't attracted more attention; it's an anthology series (like Black Mirror) based on Philip K. Dick stories. It's exceptionally good, and features an all-star cast in each self-contained episode: Bryan Cranston, Steve Buscemi, Liam Cunningham, Anna Paquin, Maura Tierney, Greg Kinnear, and others all appear.
