Dominion General Discussion / Re: How do you guys not get bored?
« on: May 01, 2013, 02:00:56 pm »
Bored with online Dominion.. first-world problems~

Upgrade is usually better than Junk Dealer when trashing Rats/Fortress/Cultist/Feodum. If nothing else, that makes the whole Upgrade-your-Upgrade-to-Gold thing easier. Junk Dealer still rocks though.

Knights are good if you have more knights than your opponent and can play them often. Even if you fall behind on provinces, If you do something crazy like KC-Knight to trash a bunch of their cards and then buy out all the duchies, you might be able to pull a come-from-behind victory. It really sucks to lose your knights to other knights though. Often you'll get knights just because your opponent got them, but both players might have been better off avoiding them altogether. I find it weird than Sir Martin only costs 4$. Is he really that much worse than the card gaining one or the VP one or the on trash one? Heck, when there are cost reducers or peddlers, I want Sir Martin most of all, but then I lose him to some other knight.

All in all, the knights are pretty unreliable and are most probably not underrated here.

This discussion of knights, however, indicates how cool the concept is.  If you had a kingdom and you had a bunch of knights and your neighboring kingdoms did not, then you could just clobber everyone.  So everyone else has to get knights too.  But then the knights go up against the knights in a big ugly calvary charge, wash each other out, and the battle gets decided by what's left (infantry, archers, whatever).  Unless of course someone has better knights, then they come out with a few surviving and have the upper hand in the battle.

Adventurer with Loan is slightly interesting.  Early on Loan trashes your copper, which is good.  Later on Adventurer kind of mitigates the disadvantage of Loan, because discarding a better treasure with Loan doesn't hurt as much since Adventurer will make you shuffle it back into your deck much faster (or possibly draw it on the next turn).  Except, of course, you have a chance of drawing the Loan with Adventurer instead of your Gold.  But having one Loan seems better than having seven Copper.

Adventurer with Counterfeit is neat, too.  And perhaps Adventurer with Quarry (and some source of +buy) could help set up an engine much faster (with the downside of having to buy an Adventurer, but Quarry helps with that).

I seem to find Junk Dealer more useful than upgrade.  Though perhaps it's because I think of Upgrade as, well, something to deal with Junk and occasionally find the gaining to be detrimental (particularly with Dark Ages when I don't want Poor Houses or don't want the available $2 cards).  Junk Dealer seems much better in the early game with the extra $1 that turn.  Upgrades can turn starting estates into silvers, but the extra $1 can help you buy the cards you need earlier.  Mid- or late-game, Upgrade is probably better because it can turn cards that have outlived their usefulness into more useful cards (and get victory cards).  I don't find myself doing this a whole lot, though.. but I'm probably not using it to its full utility.

I had forgotten how many misuses of GGG there were.

"Intentionally Bad at Dominion Greg," right?

I have serious problems on Goko when I buy something with Trader or Watchtower in my hand... buy gold, reveal Trader; buy Province, reveal Watchtower~ 

Can't not click a flashing green card~

Might be too strong when gained from the Black Market. Probably more so than getting the only Curser from Black Market, since Cursers are strongest earlier in the game.

I am of the strong opinion that that interaction is not worth changing the card for. If anything, there could be a line in the FAQ instructing you not to put it in the Black Market deck. I'm usually against rules like that, but I think it might be warranted here.

You could get around it with wording.  For example, by changing the wording to something like:

"+1 coin for each Diamond that is absent from the Diamond supply pile."

Clunky wording, but it gives +0 if there is no Diamond supply pile (for then no Diamonds can be absent from it).  It would then, of course, be useless in the Black Market deck, but some cards already are.

For the future, I suggest people space out their memes instead of putting them all in one post, it's less overwhelming and you get more feedback.

"...failed to draw the top card".

That makes the assumption that there was a top card to guess incorrectly

I'd argue not: if there is no top card, then "failed to draw the top card" is satisfied vacuously.

I didn't see this one yet, though I've probably only gone through 30 pages so far:

That one would be Bad Luck Brian:

Draws KC, KC, Bridge, Bridge, Bridge.
Opponent plays Possession

Not KC, KC, Bridge, Bridge, Bridge? ;-)

No, because he's so cool and wins at everything.

EDIT: Okay I guess it would be annoying to have your 9x possession discarded, but the idea of the meme was to get possessed with a hand that was useless to your opponent.

Joining the game late, hope too many of these haven't been done before:

Note sure if Goko changed the discarding/playing interface, but

When first playing Dark Ages:

And I figured I'd streamline that Leo Inception meme:
