General Discussion / Re: Random Stuff Part II
« on: February 09, 2015, 10:50:29 pm »
Just watched Spirited Away for the first time over the weekend....I didn't know you could DO that with a movie.

Yea, it blew my mind to when I realized that I was supposed to do something with movies besides look at the box.
Hmmm….look at the box. Interesting idea. We had just been tossing the disc back and forth, Frisbee-style, up until that point.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Tom Vasel's Top 10 (Favourite) Cards
« on: January 28, 2015, 09:21:36 pm »

This was exactly my experience. Anyways, a list:

11. Shanty Town
10. Haven
9. Cache
8. Wishing Well
7. Fortress
6. Hermit
5. Oracle
4. Tactician
3. Menagerie
2. Native Village
1. Young Witch

Young Witch is cool because it is the coolest card and it has the best art.
I hope adding an eleventh $3 card to your list because of young witch was intentional.

So, does ordering a list based strictly on how often each card is gained really provide the most accurate definition of "best cards"?

No, but I don't think Forager is a good example of that. You're looking for some "doesn't hurt" cantrip, a la Great Hall or Pearl Diver.
Agreed, it just jumped out to me as a prime, abnormally high example--certainly I don't think it's better than Goons or Masquerade.

My thought is that some very high ranked cards on this list (a.k.a forager) are not actually that powerful, it's just that they almost never hurt (especially when they are often simply competing with silver).
EDIT: not that this list claimed to be the definitive best cards, but it provides some interesting context when comparing w/ the Qvist list.

baker > peddler

No, not with black market, as the coin token from baker can't be spent in Black Market, but $1 from Peddler can.

So does Highway>Peddler hold up?
Throne room/king's court/procession

Variants and Fan Cards / Re: Zero Dollar Card?
« on: July 04, 2014, 01:45:27 pm »
Donald has expressed before, and I agree, that Chapel's price is far best at two. Pricing in Dominion, as many have pointed out, is not solely based on card strength, but also on just what works well in making it a fun card.

I changed the nerf. Honestly though, I don't think it would be broken. Chapel certainly isn't...

Variants and Fan Cards / Zero Dollar Card?

$0 Action
+1 card
+1 action
You may trash a card from your hand
---------
When you gain this, gain two coppers and a curse.

This seems at first like it could be WAY overpowered--use this until you want to trash it with something else. However, I think it could work--it certainly wouldn't break the game, a zero dollar price point isn't much more ridiculous than $2, and it will ever really benefit you to have gobs of these. It's kind of the same concept as chapel, in a way.
Thoughts?

This has nothing to do with any movie, cartoon, or show whatsoever, but it is a thematic kingdom.
Happy fourth of July!!

King's Court (King George)
Militia (Obvious)
Council Room (Continental Congress)
Tactician (George Washington)
Royal Seal (Stamp acts)
Ambassador (Benjamin Franklin)
Bandit Camp (Valley Forge)
Coppersmith (Paul Revere--actually a silversmith, but whatever)
Festival (Independence Day!!!)
Band of Misfits (The Continental Army)

I'm rather surprised that people are hating on Cache of all things. I mean, yes, it's pretty weak the vast majority of the time, but there are FAR more pointless cards. (Pearl Diver, anyone?)

The thing about the pin is, well, you can always just resign as soon as it's set up.....

This thread is really derailing. To keep things on topic: I got engaged.

Ok, ok, you people are obviously just doing it for the free respect at this point.

Variants and Fan Cards / Re: A Duration/Ironworks/BoM hybrid
« on: June 17, 2014, 10:49:55 am »
The self-restriction seems like a good nerf. Also, I just realised, making this a duration allows it to miss the reshuffle more often, so that could count as a suitable weakness.

This seems basically like a super-armory, and as such is probably too strong for four. 5 might be a bit steep though….

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Interesting Kingdoms with Prince?

Chapel, Village, Masquerade, Bridge, Remake, Saboteur, Goons, Possession, King's Court, Prince

I originally posted this in the "Fun Kingdom's" thread facetiously, fully expecting that it would be the least fun game of Dominion of all time. But looking at it now, I'm interested in it, since the pin can be blocked. There's also stuff with KC KC B B B, but KC saboteur and goons action could stop that. And then there's possession.
Thoughts?

Prince of Villages is a serious power on this board
I was also thinking prince of goons, with bridge.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: New Promo at Origins...
« on: June 14, 2014, 02:14:53 pm »
I think my favorite 4 cost would in fact be something like a simple Smithy or Envoy.
Starting every turn with so many cards makes everything much easier.
I agree. It probably give you the chance to set up another Prince on a +Buy card.
+Buy certainly seems like it would be pretty important in some capacity in any Prince game--you have to make up the lost turns buying and connecting prince. Also why Colony games are better for Prince--you have more opportunities and more turns to make up the points.

I anticipate that prince will be much MUCH stronger in Colony games.
Also, is it just me, or does the guy in the picture look scarily close to baron?

Point taken. I don't know what would be best here though, truly. The thing about this board is The pin is blocked by Prince of Masquerades. Then there could be a way for KC KC B B B, but heavy saboteur and goons action could throw a wrench in that….. And then there's also something with KC-Possession that could help you out.

(Hint for those who may not have figured it out: Possible strategy in the spoiler text.)
