Yesterday was my first game 5p IRL. Masquerades on the table. I made the best deck, but then they just took all my cards. But I won. Uninteresting, isn't it?

In 4P games with new people, I like playing with cards like Bishop, Vault, Masq, or Messenger so I can basically give the other people some benefits.

(messengering everyone a Bishop in 4P is a great way to get everyone to thin decks!)

(sorry if this is too interesting)

Someone on Reddit was arguing with me that Potion isn't really very useful when there's only one potion cost card, pretty much regardless of what it was.

Eventually the arguement sorta ended. Both sides were civil throughout. It was fun.

...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.

Did you offer to play a Familiar (or Scrying Pool) Cage Match with him (no other Potion cards on the board) where he was not allowed to buy Potion?

But even without pulling out the powerhouses, there are a great many boards where restricting his access to Alchemist, University, Apothecary, or Vineyard (!) will give you an easy win just for the sheer effect of you being able to build an engine while he can't.  :)

I shuffle-lucked into Inheriting Ironmongers on turn 5 and ran away with a Goons game after me and my opponent bought the same things on our first 4 turns.

You spike 7 first in a good Inheritance game, you just probably flat out win. Ironmonger is probably one of the very best Inheritance targets, though Highway is fantastic as well. I missed Highway in an Inheritance game, and a game where I was incredibly ahead was quickly blown because my opponent got to Inheritance.

Okay, it's not flat out winning to get three Ironmonger. It's an advantage, but I'd hardly compare getting Inheritance first to something like winning the Cultist / Ruins split or getting your King's Court and Mountebank to collide first. Highway is the exception to the rule here. It's certainly worth playing the rest of the game when this happens.

Don't forget though that when your Inherited Iron Mongers hit another Estate, that estate is now an Action Victory Card, so that Iron Monger was +2 cards, +2 actions.  These Ironmongers are not your average ironmongers.

This was a neat game where the only way to get +Actions was KC-Conspirator. So we both start buying treasures, since you need treasures to hit $7. My opponent tries to go for Pirate Ship, so I counter by trashing down to a 5 card deck. I then use Salvager to "Expand" my Chapel with the treasures I have left, bootstrapping to my first KC while keeping my deck size at 5 to deny any Pirate Ship tokens.

But that's actually interesting to me...

I left Copper in my hand and discarded good cards when my opponent played a Militia in order to play around Masquerade. When my opponent didn't have any Masquerades in his deck.

I live with four others, all who like dominion to varying degrees, and still haven't convinced them to play 5P yet.

Too bad for them when it's a board with Alchemist and Stonemason!

I guess that means you can only get a card up to $6, right? Ouch!

Sounds like Saboteur could be a reason not to go for Fortune.
