Dominion General Discussion / How good is Goat?
« on: December 23, 2017, 02:35:15 pm »
My sense is that Goat is a phenomenal card. Even if it didn't start in your deck, it utterly smokes, say, Loan. Is it worth skipping Chapel if Goat's on the board? Skipping masquerade?

Dominion General Discussion / ambassador + groundskeeper
« on: December 19, 2017, 09:02:41 am »
Apologies if this has been discussed before. Playing on an Ambassador board with limited +buy (bridge troll, but no extra actions, so max 3 buys on a turn, and then one foregoes playing Ambassador that turn). Groundskeepers split 5-5. My opponent resigned, but it isn't clear he was behind. Strategies for advancing such a board? I stupidly closed the window and have forgotten one of the kingdom cards:


Den of Sin
Bridge Troll
Secret Cave (+Magic Lamp/Wishes)
Wishing Well

anyone else having connection problems?

Dominion General Discussion / list your big nocturne secrets
« on: December 11, 2017, 09:48:04 pm »
i'll start

Ghost is good but it's so much work to get with either haunted mirror or exorcist. in the former case the fact that there's only one can be really painful. I'm just not sure ghost is worth it. Still, really good card.

Wishes on the other hand, man, that magic lamp.

Rules Questions / River's Gift + Forest's Gift
« on: December 10, 2017, 03:08:34 pm »
These two boons are to be kept until cleanup. What is the practical effect of this? Does it affect how many times you may receive the same boon? Does it mean that your opponent can "steal" the boon? Or is it pure reminder?

Rules Questions / Blessed Village + Moon's Gift + Changeling
« on: December 10, 2017, 12:43:32 pm »
In reading the log below, am I correct that rphilip could take a Changeling for free (i.e. not give up the Blessed Village)? He tries to exchange, but Changeling's abstract ability has lost the possibility of finding Blessed Village? Or does "exchange" necessarily require the trade to actually take place?

Turn 1 - rphilip
r plays 4 Coppers.
r buys and gains a Blessed Village.
r takes The Moon's Gift.
r receives The Moon's Gift
r looks at a card.
Changeling loses track of Blessed Village (it moved).
r topdecks a card.
r discards The Moon's Gift.
r draws 5 cards.

Dominion General Discussion / farmer's market is pretty good

not clear why nobody likes farmer's market. definitely not clear.

Conclave is better than Vassal

Dominion Online at Shuffle iT / Shuffle IT data

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere!

1) are logs available now?
2) any data trove for questions like "how many games involve Tower?"

Rules Questions / Prince + Necromancer
« on: October 30, 2017, 11:51:19 pm »
If Prince is in the trash, Necromancer-as-Prince can't be set aside, so in particular, can't set a card from your hand aside, right? This is consistent with the online implementation, but I'm not sure what the underlying principle is. (It's something like: Necromancer's specific instruction to leave Prince in the trash outweighs Prince's instruction to set Prince aside.)

Game Reports / Counting House without Traveling Fair or Mountebank
« on: September 12, 2017, 08:41:40 am »
Here's a board where I went for Counting House. I got very good shuffle luck, but I still think it was the right move. Can anyone think of a better strategy? I would note that Magpie and Border Village gave significant shuffle control, which made it easier to avoid the dreaded "Counting House on top of the shuffle and now I gotta wade through 6 turns of copper" problem.

game #6795959. Estates, no Colony/Platinum.

Dominion General Discussion / Minion vs. Diplomat
« on: September 12, 2017, 06:57:11 am »
When the opponent plays Minion and you use Diplomat's reaction, note that you will have 4 cards in hand, so you are immune from the Minion attack. One might say that you have.... diplomatic immunity from it.

Dominion General Discussion / Dominion Confessions
« on: September 09, 2017, 01:27:31 pm »
I never really know what's going on on Possession boards. I just buy cards and build a deck for a while, then kind of wing it.

Dominion General Discussion / oh man, I was just thinking
« on: September 06, 2017, 04:55:11 pm »
anyone remember Goko?

Dominion General Discussion / Farmer's Market + Defiled Shrine
« on: August 22, 2017, 06:12:48 am »
This is an interesting pair of cards to dance around. With Defiled Shrine, you can deprive the opponent of the ability to cash the Farmer's Market for points by buying a Farmer's Market when there are four tokens. I played a game just now with these two and Villa, which somewhat eliminated the usual consequences of overbuying Farmer's Market. Strange times!

Dominion General Discussion / What would you open here?
« on: August 16, 2017, 05:45:16 am »
I think the decision is not easy, whether you split 5/2 or 4/3.

No colonies, no shelters

Dominion General Discussion / any journey token combo stories?
« on: February 11, 2017, 06:17:04 am »
Anyone played a board where more than 1 of the journey token cards appeared and did something smart?

Rules Questions / Do you have the right to shuffle your hand?
« on: February 10, 2017, 03:26:38 pm »
Jackie plays Artisan, gaining a Silver. She wants to topdeck the Silver, but she doesn't want her opponent to know that she is doing this. I believe that in the Shuffle It implementation, she nonetheless shows that she is doing so (unless she has a different Silver she can topdeck, of course). Is this correct?

Rules Questions / when does the action phase change to the buy phase?
« on: February 08, 2017, 04:58:27 am »
Example: Sarah Crowns a Crown, first Crowning a Smithy, and draws only treasure. My understanding is that she cannot say "this is now my buy phase, and so I will use the second play of Crown on this Gold." Is this correct?

The wiki says further that if Sarah Princes a Crown (somehow), she cannot say at the start of her turn "this is now my buy phase, so I will Crown this Gold."

What is the precise rule for when her buy phase starts? (i.e. when does she have the power to say, "this is my buy phase.")

I didn't feel like counting it out myself and couldn't find it on the wiki, so I thought I'd ask in case someone had it saved somewhere.

Variants and Fan Cards / trade route buff
« on: February 05, 2017, 10:53:05 am »
is this broken? What if Trade Route paid you 2 for each coin on the mat? I get the feeling it would get crazy more often than it does now, but still not often enough that it would be a top ten 3 cost.

Rules Questions / Throne Room + Band of Misfits + Embargo + Lurker
« on: February 05, 2017, 06:38:11 am »
A variant of this came up on the Shuffle It Forum, but I don't totally follow the answer. It's admittedly contrived, although it's not just these 4 cards that cause the problem, so I do imagine that it comes up.

Throne BoM, picking embargo as the first action. Now BoM is in the trash, so a second choice may be made. Choose lurker. Can Lurker regain the trashed BoM?

Rules Questions / throne room + engineer
« on: January 30, 2017, 05:59:59 pm »
If I throne room an engineer, I can't trash it twice to gain, right? (wording is identical to Mining Village and this is the original instance of the "lose track" rule). This appears to be allowed on Dominion Online.

Simulation / Tax

Any data about how much having Tax on the board helps second player?
