Dominion General Discussion / Re: Semi-Interesting Dominion Moments Thread

I just for the first time ever finished (and won) a game where I never used the starting Baker token. Key cards: Lurker, Cultist, Sacrifice. Just never had a need/opportunity to spend it.

I could see Champion as an Event that would be similar to Donate - would be debt only so both players could open it (or buy on T2, T3, etc.), and it drastically changes the entire flow of the game.

I finally consider myself good enough to add meaningful content to the forum.

All content is meaningful and don't feel like you need to be "good enough" to add it! The best part about forums (for me) is being wrong and seeing / learning from others' ideas.

Will Possession (and Stash) be banned? Any other banned cards?

Transmute / Bonfire

Curious if this is actually a thing but it seems neat. Open Bonfire / Potion, buy 1 Transmute, turn 3 Estates into Golds while also Bonfireing when you can, including the Potion and even Transmute eventually. Nice way to get thin while grabbing 3 Golds. Worked out for me in an Encampment game.

I emptied the Estate pile on turn 7. Game Id 16899310

T1: Copper+Copper -> buy Estate
T2: Copper*4+Cursed Gold -> Inherit Transmogrify
T3: play some Estates
T4: Inherit Cursed Gold into Bridge Troll, play Bridge Troll
>=T5: Inherit Coppers and Curse into Estates

I'm not sure what I would have done after my deck consisted of just 2 Bridge Trolls and like 1 or 2 Coppers, but doesn't matter cus opponent resigned.

Necromancer / Leprechaun

Play a Necrom as a Lep for Wish if you can, otherwise play the Necrom as something else, thereby never having a 'dead' Lep.

Soooo .. when do we get to see the form responses?

Dominion Online at Shuffle iT / Conspirator Bug?
« on: July 26, 2018, 04:50:55 pm »
Is this a bug or am I just going crazy? Happened like 3 times this game, and certainly affected the outcome of the game as this lead to a Province, which lead to a Followers, which lead to me resigning.

I wanna be able to turn this shit off...

I personally like the reconnect feature. It's one of the best improvements over the previous client.

Oh so you don't get the same Boon twice? Could have sworn I did, including getting 4 Wil-o-the-Wisps a few different times. Game Id 16624745. Tbh I still don't know how the Boons and Hexes and States work, as I've never touched them irl.

Lurker / Pixie

I'm sure this combo has been mentioned before but you can do crazy things when you trash 1 Pixie multiple times. 1 Pixie and n Lurkers leads to potentially (1+n)*2 received Boons. Just played a particularly wild Torturer game with no villages so at first glance there was no way of chaining Torturers but with the aforementioned combo plus The Field's Gift I could fairly reliably get 5 Actions (Field's gift x 2). Pathfinding on Pixie w/ 10 Pixies helped.

Graverobber is a known bug for the AI.

Assuming you are referring to Lord Rattington, when did he become intelligent?

(Also, I know this isn't Dominion's problem, by why Fool's Gold rather than Fools' Gold? There's more than one fool in the world!)

Exactly, there are 10.

Why do you have the "everywhere" part on Bridge (formerly "including cards in players’ hands" in the 1st edition), but not on Highway, Princess, Bridge Troll, etc.?

I have literally no idea what you mean by "technically" here.
"Literally" is in-and-of-itself another abomination of modern English.

If you're ever thinking about using a semicolon, don't. Just don't. I promise you you don't need it.
- said no programming language ever.

Rats / Tower

Just played a game where when 2 piles were empty, I Butcher'ed something into a Rats mid turn, drew it, then used it to trash the rest of my deck and gain the other 19 Rats - ending the game with the 20vp from Rats, plus the vp from the other empty piles (they were in play before the Rats trash fest). I didn't win this game -- we each ended w/ 43vp and I was second player -- but it was certainly neat, and I do think I had a win in hand at one point but unnecessarily trashed 1 Rats at some point.

Every once in a while I still get annoyed that Dominion got a worse online client than before for double the prize. But what can you do.

As far as I can tell, they have the same number of Prizes.

The questions I ask myself:
1) Can I engine?
2) Is there payload that makes engine worth it?
3) If no to either of these, what's the strongest card I can add to a slog or BM strat?

The more you play, the more you recognize significant cards, like Jack and Gear are good for BM, Goons is awesome payload, etc.
You just answered the OP's question with 3 questions.

For me, roughly anywhere between 20 seconds and 2 minutes, or so. I actually think the biggest factor for me isn't the kingdom itself but how competitive I've decided to be that game.

How did you decide on the Boons and Hexes? I can off the top of my head think of all sorts of marginally good bonuses that aren't a boon -- +1 VP, set aside a card from your hand put it in your hand next turn, +1 Coffer, etc.

What is this "pro" Dominion and how can I get in on it?

Donate / Transmute

Transmute, I know, hear me out .. Buy Transmute on T3 or 4 (ideally T3), then Donate, then start turning Estates into Golds. Seems particularly nice in the absence of other workshop-variants / economy-gainers in Donate games. Can even open Potion/Estate to turn a 4th Estate into Gold in lieu of opening, say, Potion/Silver. Then can use Donate again to get rid of Transmute.

Speaking of Thrown Room variants .. Do you try to avoid making new card shaped things that are variants of cards that have caused a lot of rule headache in the past (Thrown Room variants, Band of Misfits variants, Possession, etc.)? Or do you see rule discussions as just part of the fun?

$0 - Alms
$3 - Workshop
$4 - Armory
$5 - Cobbler

Funny enough those are the same order when you sort them by how soon the gained card can be in your hand (barring edge cases):
Alms - next turn, next shuffle
Workshop - this turn (potentially), next shuffle
Armory - this turn (potentially), next +card
Cobbler - right now

I do think this reiterates Cobbler's #1 selling point - that it helps with starting hand consistency (along with, as you mention, doesn't require an action).
