World Famous Dominion Picture Trivia
« on: July 31, 2017, 02:32:22 pm »

Hello, fans.  As you are all aware, Dominion Picture Trivia has become a global phenomenon, far surpassing in popularity the original game itself.  While this has greatly impacted my lifestyle and status, and while my success has been a massive drain on my time, I haven't gotten so big that I've forgotten my brand. 

I'm a puzzle maker.  But, unlike other puzzle makers who have reached my level of acheivement -- Da Vinci, Turing -- I have my finger on the pulse.  My puzzles, in addition to merely being a delightful mental challenge, are a masterwork that contain and unlock all the other relevant art and culture of our moment.  In a way, to solve one of my puzzles is to "solve" our generation.

And so, despite the temptation to rest on my laurels, I must continue to create.  Even as I dictate these words into my iPhone 7, while driving my Mercedes G Wagon 15 miles over the speed limit through Beverly Hills, I see in the blank stairs of passersby a hunger for the mental and spiritual enrichment only I can provide.

Every schoolboy knows the rules.  The names of exactly two Dominion (was that what the game was called?) cards, events, or landmarks are input into Google Image Search, and an image is chosen from among the front page results. You then work backwards from the images to figure out what the original pairs of cards were.

It's pointless to relive past glory, but previous examples can be found here, here, here, here and here.

These are like the Classic variety of the game, with no additional gimmicks, bells, or whistles.

Can you work backwards from the images to the pairs of card names?

Posting the solutions as they are solved.

Woo hoo!  Mith cracked it: all the card pairs were entered into Google after first being read aloud into a phone, creating 15 sound-alikes.  In some cases one card name became a homophone, in others the two words combined when spoken aloud into something new.  I'll continue to post the answers as you get them, and  in about a week I'll post whatever is still stumping everyone.

1. Mint Spy (Mince Pie)
2. Cache Advance (Cash Advance)
3. Gold Raze (Gold Rays)
4. Ball Arena (Ballerina)
5. Keep Hoard (Keyboard)
6. Abandoned Mine Temple (Abandoned Mayan Temple)
7. Spoils Port (Spoilsport)
8. Loan Ranger (Lone Ranger)
9. Raid Inn (Raiden)
10. Steward Mill (Stuart Mill)
11. Baron Orchard (Barren Orchard)
12. Thief Fugitive (The Fugitive)
13. Shepherd Ferry (Shepard Fairey)
14. Misery Capital (Missouri Capitol)
15. Imp Prince (Imprints)

These are fun. What's the current status of the 5th game?

They were designed to be extra-hard, and can't be reverse-image-searched, so some of them are still sitting around unanswered, waiting for the type of person who wants to stare at pixels until they figure out what they're looking at.  I still check in on them.

OK, I'm officially struggling. I can guess a word for like half of these, but the second word is where it gets tough.

#3: Gold Fountain
#6: Monument Temple

Don't think I'm right on either, but might as well throw out a guess.

Me, too. These are difficult, but fun! #10's tricky because the text of the comic has 7 or 8 different Dominion cards mentioned in it! I can get it on the first page with three cards, but not two. "Dungeon Steward Mill" actually returns it as the first result for me. I was really hoping "Steward Mill" would do it. But, alas! It does not seem to work.

Edit: Seeing the OP, I guess not literally the front page was ok on #10.

Also, Fugitive    alone gives #12, so not sure what you are going for there. It is a pretty iconic movie poster....

Do you have different images than me? All I see on 10 are Copper, Hoard, and Hero.

So what's the deal with 10?  Is that his name?

Oh no.  You guys have been really slow solving these and now there are more! 

Each new pair includes exactly one name from Nocturne. 

The new answers also include one state.

Given current political conditions, I wouldn't be surprised if #14 had Den of Sin.

12. fugitive remake I must have got that months ago and never posted it.

For a while I didn't realize the original 12 were pre-nocturne and I was trying to make 1 into a shepherd and 11 into cursed gold.

13. HoP and Changeling is a stretch, but the best I've got right now.

11. Seems like it should be Orchard/Vineyard Pathfinding or something, but again haven't found a match.

I think I'm out of ideas, someone else figure out the rest.
