Fell and should keep falling: Sauna - Sauna didn't fall much but it could be somewhat significantly lower. It is typically a card of last resort

Uhhhhhh are we looking at the same card here buddy

52
This is the third year in a row that Farming Village's rank has gone up by +3.

53
I probably missed this discussion earlier; but are first-edition cards left out of the rankings? I would assume so, otherwise where is Thief?

I disagree with that; just because a card isn't in the second printing of Dominion doesn't make it any less an official and real Dominion card.

Disagree with your disagreement.

Anyway, Cutpurse is way too low.  In the early game, it's better than Militia.

54
I would also pick Masquerade for the top.

Anyone know how many responses there were this year?

Predictive statistics: Market Square and Doctor have both risen by at least +1 in the rankings.

57
With Tax, it's the setup that irks me most.

As I see it, the key difference is timing. Royal Carriage lets you repeat an Action's benefit at once, but you have to have it in your hand when you play the action

I believe you mean on your Tavern mat?

59
Good to see Advance and Delve dropping. I think Haven and Cellar are still underrated.

I still think Haven is overrated.

I dub thee... Dame Anna.  Oh, and you too, I suppose.

* How does this compare to Royal Carriage?
* How many of these do you want?
* Under what conditions (besides the trivial of no Actions in play) do you go for the +?

Having extra types makes Courtier better, and that's all the reason I need

No one ever responded to this, but an expansion is coming out next month: https://www.target.com/p/disney/-/A-75662692

I've quite enjoyed the game, played it quite a bit over the past half year, and I'm quite looking forward to the expansion.

Dominion: Renaissance Previews / Re: Artifact Origin cards as a card type
« on: February 07, 2019, 01:16:31 pm »
As I was re-organizing my cards and noticed that the 'origin' cards for the Artifacts did not have their own 'card type'.  I am not intending to criticize the introduction of this new concept, but the other non-card type cards (at least in Renaissance have some sort of 'origin' card.  Doom > Hex, Fate > Boon.  Why did the Artifacts 'origin' card not have their own type? Maybe 'Reward' or 'Trophy'.  I doubt it was an 'oversight' by design.
Types are used in Dominion either to have rules tied to them, or because making the cards a different color has value.

Those cases did not come up here; so, no new type.
Strictly speaking, Gathering fulfils neither of these requirements; the way I understood it, those cards have a type just so that other cards can refer to them.

Same as Attack. Indeed "so that cards can refer to them" should have been listed as a third reason.

I think that pretty comfortably falls under "have rules tied to them".

Let's Discuss ... / Re: Let's Discuss Renaissance Cards: Lackeys
« on: February 07, 2019, 01:15:39 pm »
I think that the card is a borderline $3 but isn't the design principle to make cards as cheap as possible?
Indeed.

But if the question isn't "how come Lackeys is so cheap", I can instead ask "why are Experiment and Expedition so expensive"? (-8

My thoughts:
* Expedition's draw is immediate, and doesn't add a card to your deck.
* Experiment is Thronable to get extra Actions
* Lackeys eventually run out, the others don't

Not tried yet, but they should play well with the Page line. Lube the path all the way to Champion, after which they become Lost Cities.

Good target for Teacher, too.

So, whose wine are we poisoning tonight?

* How good is this as a source of draw?
* How many of these do you want, and how often do you pick them up?
* Would you ever get this purely for the extra Villagers?

For people who think Black Market is one of the best: how do you do the setup IRL?  It sounds unusable.

Use an app with virtual Black Market deck support. It can simulate a Black Market deck for you. If someone buys the actual card you then dig it out, that way you only have to fish for the cards you need.
Can you suggest any?  People keep saying this, but I have yet to find one that does more than pick out the BM cards.

Clearly, someone needs to make one.

*glances from side to side*

*puts finger on nose*

Not it

Lost in the Woods into Swamp's or Earth's Gift

You can also do this with Blessed Village, which is the one I thought of!

IRL takes longer, but I like the tactile sensation of playing with real cards.

How many ways can you get Citadel and Innovation to activate for the same card?

EDIT: The trivial answer is, don't play any Actions and buy a card.  There are more interesting ones!

I think the more pressing question is: why is this part of the forum a nest of matryoshka child boards, and not just all sub-boards of a "previews" board?
