Honestly I will probably start a whole thread on how you lay out your dominion cards when I get home and can use a camera.

I usually do Treasures / Trash top row, Victory / Curse 2nd, then two rows of Kingdom cards mimicking Dominion Online's layout.

Depending on the table / board, and how lazy / intoxicated I am, I'll sometimes do columns instead with pricier cards closer to the player. So like the leftmost column would be Copper Silver Gold, then Estate Duchy Province. Curse and Trash go to the right of Estate along with the two cheapest Kingdom cards, then the remaining 8 Kingdom Cards go in the two rows below that.

Events? Eh, they just go kind of wherever. Usually closest to the player most likely to forget they exist.

I don't get the hate for people that don't put out Curses out when there are no cursers. In the very rare cases where it matters, you can just take them out of the box when requested, and every other time it makes setup/clean-up that bit faster.

You know what's the worst when I'm playing in-person Dominion (which is very rare)?  When people set up the cards in cost order... including the standard supply cards.  So the table gets laid out something like this:

Colony - Platinum - Province
Inheritance - King's Court - Gold - Nobles
Market - Catacombs - Duchy
Coppersmith - Worker's Village - Tournament
Silver - Oasis - Urchin - Plan
Page - Pawn - Estate
Copper - [Curse]

(These sorts of people invariably fail to put out curse if there's no curser.)

So this means that depending on my seat, I have to look over/around big stacks to see the standard kingdom stacks.  And don't forget the events being mixed in with all the regular cards!

I set up the Kingdom cards in cost order, but who would do THAT!?

I agree. The treasures/victory cards are staples and should always stay where they are (including Curses, but I understand if they're not set out as a matter of convenience). I also do kingdom cards in cost order. I don't have Adventures yet, so I can't say what I'd do with the events. I guess put them above the treasure/VPs. Probably.

We used to do…

[Basic Cards]
[Kingdom Cards]
[Events]

…but now we do…

[Basic Cards]
[Events]
[Kingdom Cards]

…and I think it makes Events just slightly easier to remember. Though sometimes people still forget. Joke's on them!

I just wanted to point out that this may be the most off-color joke I've seen referenced in MLP:

Sort the cards alphabetically by artist first name.

You can also sort the cards by the most recent Qvist ranking.

I just use the mat from the big box most of the time, and when I don't have it I set up the basic cards in that order. I usually put Ruins in the Platinum or Potion slot, depending on whether either of those is being used.

I think putting events with kingdom cards is perfectly reasonable.

I sort the cards by their mass, least to greatest.  It seems the most natural.

I don't always sort the kingdom cards, but when I do, I'm still the only one around the table who has any idea why they're in that order.

I have a friend who insists on putting kingdom victory and treasure cards with the basic ones, and it always annoys me. I can see the logic of it at least - since it means you have action cards, treasure cards and victory cards separate, but man I don't want to forget or never even notice there was Fairgrounds in the game just because you plonked it up there.

idk if we have a thread for non-dominion streams but a good one is startin up now:

https://www.twitch.tv/lordbbh

this is a longtime buddy of mine who's a freakin god at classic arcade games.  he's beaten hundreds of them on one credit, but his recent streams have taken a different approach.  specifically, a little something called MAME Roulette!

the idea is simple: fire up the arcade emulator MAME, and have it display a random list of games.  he plays the top game on the list unless it isn't emulated or it's gambling/porn, in which case he rerolls.  every 5th game he does Viewer's Choice, where we get to vote on any game from the given list for him to play.

recent highlights include a game where you stick a finger up people's butts, and BBH getting a one-credit clear on the Capcom shooter UN Squadron (after not playing it for years)

he does these every Monday & Thursday, so stop on by!  arcade games tend to have a lot more unique aesthetics/presentation than console stuff, and i think that works well for streaming.

I was thinking about the obligatory April's fool joke about Isotropic being live along with "Empire" (the Innovation achievement), but then I find out Isotropic Innovation is down too...

Besides, the best April Fool's pranks are done on days other than April 1. People are less likely to expect it.

I was very tempted to ask theory if he'd mock ban me for something on April Fools day, but I think that joke has been done before anyway. Still could have been funny I guess?

I can't ban you, can I just mock you instead?

I think it would be sad if you were banned, not funny.
