IRL game. 4 players. Most people screwing around with Knights, one with Rats/Hermit. Aimed to Inherit Highways when no one else was considering it. Finally got it going and ended up as the only person with more than two Provinces.

There was also a game where I won with 31 VP chips.

Apologies and so on.

Screwing around? I'll have you know those Knights were incredibly tactical.

Somewhat related: I had a game where I had just seen a forced tie. Seeing as I am doing rather poorly, I decide to go for it. It involves playing a Jester for money to get to 8 for Province. The Jester hits a Victory card, hands over a curse, and I win.

Something is terribly, terribly wrong here.  Or there is a bug in the ranking algorithm.  Or Stef's MF client is REALLY screwed up.

Isn't that correct, though? The ranking's based off of mu - 3sigma IIRC, and since your sigma's lower you should be rated higher.

The joke is that Dingan has apparently passed Stef, and well obviously the idea of being more highly rated than Stef is ludicrous.

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.
I hereby declare myself the best dominion player in the world. Obviously.

Lord Bottington's Noble Brigand attack fails in the most spectacular way.

So I had a great deck with 7 Alchemists (potion), 4 platinums, 1 gold, 4 fortresses, 1 militia, 3 expands, 1 forge... and a lead.

On a turn, I play a few alchemists and then get tripped up for some reason and play a terminal militia with no potion in play and no way to get back to the alchemists  for probably 3 hands.

My opponent has a deck with 6 nobles, 4 fortresses, 3 golems, 3 alchemists, 2 expand, 1 forge, 1 develop, 3 expands...

Over the next two turns, he takes a 14 point lead with two colonies left.


This is my hand:
Jeb - draws Fortress, Fortress, Platinum, Expand, Forge

----------------------------------------------------------

Jeb - plays Fortress
Jeb - draws Potion
Jeb - plays Fortress
Jeb - draws Expand
Jeb - plays Expand
Jeb - trashes Platinum
Jeb - gains Colony
Jeb - plays Forge
Jeb - trashes Expand, Potion
Jeb - gains Colony

Definite bug. Let's take the 0 off of that 10 :)

Edge caseTM: he played ruined village with herald/golem or needed one more card in play for HoP.

Not sure why you'd pick up Silver on that board. I mean, if that Silver had been a Native Village...

A house rule my friends play with is that if you don't quote this scene when you play Rabble, the attack doesn't land. This also doubles as a way to make other players pay more attention.
