Who on here is trainer name lifeshonanstyle? I can't remember.  Anyway, we are lucky friends now LOL.  Does us no good since we have to be near each other to trade.

That's me.  I saw that.  I have a number of lucky friends I don't know IRL who live in other countries.  Funny though.

Yeah it's lame that we can't trade over distance when we're lucky friends.  And I'm not a spoofer either so I can't "fly" to you.

I probably wouldn't buy axe as it is. Too risky. Maybe it could say "Reveal the top card of your deck.  You may trash it.  If you do trash it, gain a card costing up to 2 more than it; if you don't trash it, put it back." I'm sure that can be worded better but you get the point.

I like the idea of your tool attack cards.  I personally think sword is too harsh. Not only is it a militia every time it comes around to start your turn, but it also is a junk card in and of itself. Once someone is dealing out multiple of these, people won't be having fun.

Okay thanks! You're right I see the icons, I was just being dumb I guess.  Looking forward to the fixed version! It should make these threads with the new cards much better

I just read the Invest event.

I have not...mind editing the text into the OP?

Check out the Chrome extension for card autolink! Especially useful shortly after a new set releases.

I have the extension but I don't see the card links in peoples' posts.  What am I doing wrong? I have version 1.33.  Oh, please talk to me like I'm 5.  I'm not a computer guy.  The extension doesn't actually seem to be doing anything.  It is turned on for all sites.

I'm 90% sure that's not how that works, but then I'm 70% sure that's the joke.

I don't think it works either, but I still got a chuckle out of it!

This is what I thought of immediately.  Glad there's another Phineas and Ferb fan out there

Seems like Changeling could be a very useful card with Exiling.

Can you explain why you think this? I'm not doubting you, my brain just isn't making the situation work in my head haha.

Just played some games, and I have no idea how to use scrap right apparently.  Either it isn't a very good card or I'm not very good with it (I'm assuming the latter)
I tried to make it work with Rats, and it was fun, but not the best.  It was pretty handy with flag bearer too, but not amazing.  I guess that's what I should expect from a $3 TfB

I'm impressed by the simplicity and elegance of these cards! They are simple to understand and read for the most part, yet they create very interesting decisions within the game.  I love them!

I hope there is a platypus card.

In all seriousness though, I'm so pumped for more Dominion content.  There are already more expansions than I originally anticipated, so each new one is just gravy.  I love it.

FWIW the blacklist button also reports the player.
It's true, but half of the people I blacklist aren't because they are rude, and I don't want them to be banned or anything. I just don't want to play with them anymore for one reason or another.  It would be good to have a separate "report" option.
As one of the two mods who can even see this data, I assure you you don't need to worry about us not being able to tell the difference. Blacklist liberally.

Well then maybe a solution would be to make this information known through dominion.games so everybody knows exactly what blacklisting does.

Almost all of the poor sportsmanship experiences I've had were in mid-level play. People who are really good and people who are really bad tend to be civil. Once you get above level 50 it's not an issue really.

This is usually true for me too.  I have gotten the occasional high ranked player who complains about my luck or their bad luck, and then proceeds to be angry the whole time. But usually it is a good experience.

I recall Thunderstone had a mechanic you could invoke when you received a crap hand. I cannot remember it though. This was back in original Thunderstone. I understand itís gone through some changes, but I certainly canít speak to that.

I did like how thematic Thunderstone was, and the rules were okay. It had a lot of currencies to track though. You needed to pay attention to the car cost, sure, but also the strength required when attaching a weapon, how much light you produce, and your combat total. It had a lot of moving parts, and I canít fault someone if they feel that this produced more bloat than good. I was okay with it, but it certainly did weigh the game down more.

That being said, I liked the ability of training characters. You didnít have to start from the beginning though. You could wait until all the level 1s were gone and then start recruiting the level 2s.

While the rules for the original were not really elegant, the game was dripping with theme. It felt like a dungeon crawl, which was fun but also could get as tedious during the bad parts of a dungeon crawl. Iíd be interested in play the new version to see what all was streamlined. While I enjoy Thunderstone, I think Clank! scratches that itch better.

Yeah you can take a whole turn to trash a card from your hand.  Not a great turn, but better than nothing.  I liked the rule, although I wish it let you trash 2 cards.  Agreed, leveling up heroes was way fun.  Some of the heroes were painfully unbalanced though.  We house ruled a lot of them.

25. Pirate Ship
26. Navigator

Some of these bottom ones seem odd to me.  Cutpurse, Island, and Embargo seem much more useable to me than Treasure map and Explorer. (Rank 18-23)

Island is higher than TM or Explorer.

Yes I can read.  I'm saying it seems much better, and that that general cluster of low ranked cards seems odd to me.

I grew up playing thunderstone (before Dominion) and I actually liked it a lot.  Since I've gotten into Dominion I've hardly played it though, so who knows what I'd think about it now that I've been enlightened by Dominion.

I loved how thematic it was. I also felt like I could trash enough cards usually, which was an improvement from most deck-builders.  I liked the fact that you have to pick to go the the village or dungeon.  The main issue was there was almost literally no draw cards, so you are at the mercy of RNG to give you a good hand of 6.

My friend wanted me to play the cooperative Harry Potter deck builder with them.  I played the first two books then stopped.  It just pales compared to Dominion.  You don't have any control over your deck! You're lucky to trash a few cards throughout the whole game.

I don't think that Captain is a $7.
Agreed
If you play around with it you can easily see that it is weaker than KC. For example Captain-Peddler has net effects of +1 Card, +1 Action, +2 Coins whereas KC-Peddler has net effects of +1 Card, +2 Actions, +3 Coins.

Weaker than KC =/= shouldn't be a $7.  KC is OP AF.  I still agreed that it's fine at $6, that's just not a good argument

23
So you can play Captain, then play the last workshop in the pile, and that workshop can gain itself since it is still there, right?

Captain + Encampment!!
