So...I've been on the forum for about a month, and then I read one of those introduction threads, and I thought, hey, I should do one of those. So here's my story of dominion.
It started sometime a few years ago. I was invited to a friend's house, and was told I would be trying a new card game. Needless to say, I was surprised by the kind of game I experienced. I did surprisingly well, despite only buying duchies for points. But enough about the gameplay. I was informed of the existence of the expansions but didn't get a chance to play again for a while.
Flash forward to Christmas 2013. My dad got Dominion for Christmas because he had heard that unlike most card games, the players start on an even playing field. I recognized the game, and kicked butt by being the first in my family to figure out smithy-village. Then never got it to work again.
Flash forward again to Adventures. It, Intrigue, and some promos are the only cards we don't have. Meanwhile, my dad is pretty much the only person other than me that plays dominion anymore. Around a month ago, between my father and I, we had all cards but summon, and I joined the forums. Since, I have been posting in random topics and being weird (as per usual). I tend to have unorthodox ideas about how certain cards should be used, and this forum has already helped me to become a better player. I just wish there were some way I wouldn't have to buy everything twice to get the expansions online as well as IRL.
