There is no bad shuffle that can not be surmounted by scorn.

mith 3.5-0.5 Orange

Game 1: mith 16-3 Orange
Game 2: Orange 31-76 mith
Game 3: mith 58-37 Orange
Game 4: Orange 0-0 mith

Game 1 - He went for Rats with support from Procession and Salvager, while I just went the boring Mountebank route with Labs for draw, and finished off the Rats as the third pile after getting some points.

Game 2 - He skipped Urchin/Mercenary here, which I think was a mistake, instead going straight for Champion and a stack of Monuments. I trashed down, got some Platinums and more consistent Giant play with Royal Carriage, and split the Colonies 7-1.

Game 3 - Ambassador into lots of Goons is the right way to go here, but we both started with 5-2 splits. I decided to ignore Ambassador entirely to go all in on Gardens and opened with Masterpiece/Duchess (?), while he opted for Tribute/Pearl Diver (and I immediately thought of the 2nd edition threads). He did pick up Ambassador and trash down pretty effectively, but didn't commit to going for Goons early enough, and I was able to pile out the Gardens and Silvers after splitting the Ports.

Game 4 - This is a Bridge Mega Turn set, with Stables for draw, Wandering Minstrel for actions, and Smugglers/Pilgrimage for extra gains. Bridge/Smugglers openings for both of us, mine collided while his Smugglers missed the shuffle. Turn 7 I got distracted by Peddler thinking it would ramp me up to more consistent multiple buys (dumb), while he focused more on the gainers and WM. Anyway, when he disconnected turn 12 he had the turn advantage, an extra Bridge, and a big advantage in WMs; probably winning, but with Stables already gone (split 5-5) and only 3 Bridges and 4 WMs left, he has to be careful. Anyway, he offered to make a draw and end the match, so I'll take it.

Thanks for the games, Orange!

Partial match against Chris is me. Currently 3-2 in my favor.

I try to do what Chris does, get Caravans and TR and play Giants. I only get 4 Caravans and decide Hermit-BM can't be that bad.

http://gokosalvager.com/static/logprettifier.html?https://dominion-game-logs.s3.amazonaws.com/game_logs/20161014/log.0.1476412191669.txt

Gained Merc pretty early. Figured with 2 Mercs I wouldn't be able to support Goons for a while, so I picked up Baker instead of Goons with my first $6 off Spoils. It pays off well.

I get a little too Knight happy and slowly lose my lead to Ambassador junking. At some point I decide my odds are better if I try to 3 pile with Duchies. I think it was the right call. This game should not have been as close as it was, my Knights were hitting left and right.

First game I've played with the Masq-Royal Carriage pin. I make some mistakes, but Chris misses the pin and that lets me set it up faster than he can.

Just a horribly played game from my side. Hitting $5 early for Ball was super important on this board, and I opened Remake/Urchin in a Shelters game. It can still work out okay because there are good $2s, but I trash Copper instead of Shelters on my first Remake play for stupid reasons, then make some bad early gains. I don't recover afterwards, despite trying really hard.

I gave serious thought to skipping University and going for Apprentice-Butcher BM, but decided I wasn't sure that would work. I knew Chris was opening Potion/-, so if I mirrored with my 4/3 I was in good position. I did Silver/Potion instead of Smuggler/Potion because I wanted to get Apprentice early. I think even without hitting $5 I like it more than Smuggler/Potion, but I did miss having Smugglers in the later parts of the game. Some Butcher tricks let me sneak a win.

And a fun addendum: on my second to last turn of the final game, I get tilted over not hitting $4 with my Goons to buy double Raze and win, so instead I stupidly buy Estate/Copper thinking I need points to get out of range of a Province buy from him. Except Raze/Copper already gives me enough points to be out of range of a simple Province buy, and Estate/Copper doesn't get me enough points to be out of range of a Province/Copper with Goons for ADK (tie is fine for him). He doesn't hit Province in his next hand and I should win on my turn except I was an idiot.

So don't get mad during crucial endgames folks!

RIP the dream.

I've learned I should think about my decisions even more carefully, meaning I should play even slower. I'm sure people are thrilled to hear that :P.

https://dominion-game-logs.s3.amazonaws.com/game_logs/20161021/log.0.1477019037949.txt

5/2 looks really bad here until you realize Ball exists, then it's alright. I abuse Upgrade/Rats faster and it quickly leads to a resign.

https://dominion-game-logs.s3.amazonaws.com/game_logs/20161021/log.0.1477019717098.txt

You can Hag, wait for Witch, or go for Familiar. I decide for Hag, it ends up going even with Familiar. Except, Familiar turns into a liability because Horse Traders is on the board, and not playing one of the several Familiars you've bought hurts a lot more than not playing a single Sea Hag. Anyways, Hag + lots of Stables, then some sloggy thing where you buy Distant Lands now and then.

https://dominion-game-logs.s3.amazonaws.com/game_logs/20161021/log.0.1477019991740.txt

Maybe the engine is doable here, but no alt-VP and Embassy + Treasure Trove is nuts. I hit a very early $7 that maybe should have been a Forge, but I'm not sure. Looking back I think I can't justify detouring for Forge. Which is a shame because it means that shuffle is really bad for me. Oh well.

https://dominion-game-logs.s3.amazonaws.com/game_logs/20161021/log.0.1477020951201.txt

Build to putting the +Action token on Knights. I get a big lead from Dame Anna, but throw it on turn 15 when I buy Gold. That should be Graverobber. I never get a good chance to pick up Graverobber after that, and eventually lose to Graverobbed Knights. There's a turn where I buy Province over Duchy because I'm scared schadd will Graverob Dame Josephine and buy Province, but that's too cautious with my deck. By that point I know I'm about to get Knight attacked, so I think I do need to take the risk and just go for the Province, try to end the game faster. (I was the beatdown and didn't realize it! Darn.)

https://dominion-game-logs.s3.amazonaws.com/game_logs/20161021/log.0.1477021437309.txt

Jack + Counterfeit-BM, not too much to say here. I think 2nd Counterfeit gave me just enough marginal advantage to get the win here.

https://dominion-game-logs.s3.amazonaws.com/game_logs/20161021/log.0.1477022038342.txt

When Tournament-BM is the best thing on the board, you're really sad. I try to pick up Silvers over Tournament after the first few because I don't want them to get blocked too much once we pick up Provinces, but schadd ends up gaining more Prizes because of his extra Tournaments. Not sure what to take from this game. Things happened, I guess?

https://dominion-game-logs.s3.amazonaws.com/game_logs/20161021/log.0.1477022863444.txt

Embassy + Treasure Trove again, but this time there is a compelling set of engine cards. Haggler, Forager, Vineyard, and Farming Village. With 5/2 I feel like I'm forced to go for Embassy-BM, it feels way too fast. Well, turns out it wasn't fast enough. My turn 12 should have been Embassy instead of Gold. I thought I couldn't support more, but 1) I didn't account for all the Silvers from schadd's Embassy buys, and 2) it denies an Embassy from Schadd, and 3) it's just a better card from my deck than Gold is. I'm not sure if it cost me the game, but it definitely hurt my chances. I think the engine actually was better though - if I had stopped to think about it more, I might have opened Haggler/- instead.

Here's the recording of my match with michaeljb from ages ago. Sorry this took me so long and sorry about the lack of commentary, the recording got messed up.
