I wrote some code to do card similarity before (unfortunately, it depended on other data in councilroom that is not available for new cards).  All of the pictures have been lost to history, but some textual outputs are here that show it's sort of reasonable.

Goko Dominion Online / Cute little idea for game based on game logs
« on: April 21, 2014, 11:41:14 am »
A game based on game logs?  We must go deeper.

Let's call it back seat driving for Dominion.  Or Dominion Offline.

Imagine you could find games between highly rated players in which the players strategies diverged meaningfully.  Further, imagine you could generate a terse summary of the strategy employed (say, Steward/Steward -> Minions or Tactician/Treasure Maps). 

You could show players the board and the strategies employed, and then the back seat driver picks who he thinks won.  Obviously, you want the guess correctly.  You could keep records of predictive accuracy, have a leaderboard, etc.

This sort of simultaneously selects for interesting boards (good players diverged) and focuses on the strategic part of the game rather than the tactical part.  It's totally plausible that this could actually be fun for hardcore F.DSers, and you could easily play it in 2 minute intervals, while on the subway, etc.

Tichu has been popular recently.  Ra and Kingdom Builder much less so.

I think he misread or misunderstood the mutual part.

EG, blueblimp is suggesting that cards are automatically rejected if ALL players veto them, not if ANY player vetos them.

Why not require all exps for pro?  It says pro, not noob, after all.

All you F.DSers should go to the world boardgaming championship in August in Lancaster, PA.  It will be fun.

I promise.

Goko Dominion Online / Re: Goko Dominion Salvager Discussion
« on: March 11, 2014, 03:41:23 pm »
VP Counter seems to have a problem to count correctly the scorefor  my opponent "Goko Took My $$". I think that the "$$" in his name are the problem.
The log window display only one $ !

This is actually Goko's "Bobby Tables" bug, not Salvager's.  The log messages they produce internally are broken.  I could try to adjust for it, but since he's the only regular player with that issue (and he's even aware of it), I don't really feel all that motivated.

This is the same decision I made when some jerk with a weird name like "plays a copper" broke my parser for councilroom.

My wife and I are going to London, Bruges, and Amsterdam sometime soon, probably in May.

I love beer, especially Belgian beers.  My wife loves moules frites.  I am a vegetarian, she eats fish but no meat.  I certainly enjoy the wacky tobacky on occasion.  We both love cheese.  We are fans of Indian food.  We both love walking around sort of aimlessly through European cities.  We aren't super big museum people, though we'd happily go to a few.

« on: February 19, 2014, 12:48:27 am »
C'mon, no one links to data?  Players who gain Scout when Crossroads AND Nobles are available win less than you'd expect them to at random (though within margin of error).

Data confirms it, even when scout has super friendly combos, it still kind of sucks.

When theory and I started DS, we aimed for intelligence and quality of discourse in contrast to the dominion forum on BGG, where absolutely crazy and terrible ideas were far too common.  We were totally willing to sacrifice warmth to combat the the crazy, eg, no tolerance for idiocy.  Looks like we got the quality of discourse and still managed to keep the warmth (well, except for scaring away DX).

You can have gold to hire new dudes.  Or you can just buff them so they never die.  From my experience, it's way better to have buff dudes than to have a lot of money.

Wesnoth is great.  But I hate that it rewards basically using nearly defeated opponents as a training ground.  You just want to sit a level 1 or 2 dude on a village while he is slowly attacked at a rate that won't kill him so he can gain XP.

Dominion is a top notch title though, and also the one they launched with, so I wouldn't be surprised if if it was more than 50k.

Only 2k for the whole forum?  I spend $300/year just so you jerks can talk about a game I don't even play anymore ;P.

What about having the community buy back the license from Goko?  Let the investors recoup some money.

Just implement the auto-resign in the vp counter ;).

Two crashes today.  I've been restarting the machine to deal with it, but I think we might be in for some instability.
