I never really know what's going on on Possession boards. I just buy cards and build a deck for a while, then kind of wing it.

Serious confession: I buy Treasure Map far more often than I would like to admit, despite fully understanding that without Alms or a good sifter there are typically better things I could be spending my $4 on...

Ah, Treasure Map.  The payoff is such a thrill, I can understand what people see in gambling.  Getting that hit on turn 5... nothing better.

I think the only Dominion card I hate as much as Possession is the Peasant/Teacher line. The Page line is infinitely more interesting.

Reminds me of a 4-player game where no one was paying attention through my long turns. I basically had to say "hey guys, pay attention this time" because I was going to do a bunch of Upgrade tricks and end the game (and no one else realized we were even close to that point yet).

Almost every other game, I'm muttering "so freaking unlucky" to myself with my hand in my face. I've gotten about 20 Golden Sombreros in 900 games online, but I know I don't really get super unlucky in general- I'm just bad  :P

I often violate the Penultimate Province Rule because I think my opponent probably doesn't have 8 and I don't want to play through a dragged-out, increasingly sloggish game. I usually regret this.

True, if I had cut my losses and trashed the Estates the game would probably still have been competitive. In fairness I can't think of another situation where Treasure Map saying "if you trashed two Treasure Maps" rather than "if you did" matters in gameplay terms.

Today was the first time I ever bought Artificer.  Not because I don't believe that it can be good, just because I am lazy and I haven't ever really thought about how to use it well.

On a similar note, I think I've only bought storyteller once for the same reason.

I recently bought a Jester when my opponent already had Champion in play.

I've never owned a physical copy of Dominion. I last played IRL over a year ago. I never paid for sets on Making Fun. I didn't buy a gold subscription until the ShuffleIT tournament required it. Bureaucrat is one of my favorite cards. I have never bought Miser because I was too lazy to figure out how to use it.

I bought a Wild Hunt when my opponent had already been going for it instead of a second Patrol while Mill was on the board. (I won anyway, but that doesn't change the fact that I should have bought a second Patrol)

You have to buy Wild Hunt every time. With the second Patrol, it's pretty likely you would have lost instead.

If you don't get a Wild Hunt, your opponent can just get 203947852039487520394875209348750239486709246790 tokens on the pile while nothing is junking his deck or limiting his potential VP gain. Just a single Wild Hunt is enough to prevent that from happening; then he has to use his last Wild Hunt to gain an Estate every turn.

Of course it helped a lot that he didn't buy more than one Wild Hunt (he should have bought 9 of them), but you can't really count on that.

I once tried building an engine payloading mass Bridge off of Shanty Town and Patrol.

The math: playing Shanty Town plus Patrol nets one card. To play n Bridges I need to play n-1 villages; for n=5 I need to draw 4 cards, for which I need 4xShanty+4xPatrol (and I need to not draw whatever trasher is stuck in my deck). Note that n=6 requires 5xShanty for the payload and 6xShanty to draw all that with Patrol; only cheaters buy 11xShanty.

So that's a deck of 8xShanty, 4xPatrol, 5xBridge, a trasher, and probably an extra Shanty/Patrol pair to draw past the trasher, which is obviously super fast to build. Note that this is enough to single Province. I can probably add in a Gold if I add an extra Shanty/Patrol pair to draw it, to double Province.

Of course, you should continue adding Shanty/Patrol pairs as you green to draw past your green cards.

That was an unmitigated disaster, but it's great fun retrospectively ;D

Odds of that happening on either turn 3 or turn 4 are 1/396, so roughly 0.25%.

The probability of something happening is represented as a ratio of two numbers that represent the likelihood of the event vs. all possibilities. The odds is a ratio of two numbers that represent the likelihood of the event vs. all other possibilities.

So, if you flip two coins, the probability of getting two heads is 1/4: 4 possible outcomes, one of which is the one you want.
The odds of getting two heads is 1/3: 1 outcome you want, and 3 outcomes you don't want.

(Which means that probability is a number between 0 and 1, and odds is a number between zero and infinity, which means they're useful for different sorts of calculations.)

AJD nailed the explanation.

Only pedants, statisticians and gamblers really care about the difference.

In day-to-day usage, most people use the terms "odds" and "probability" interchangeably.

The odds of getting two heads is 1/3: 1 outcome you want, and 3 outcomes you don't want.
A small but important correction: Odds are notated with a colon, not a slash. So the odds of getting two heads are 1:3 (pronounced "one to three"). Also, "odds" is plural, you say "the odds are" rather than "the odds is". Both of them do sound kind of weird though.

Traditionally, odds are worded as being "against" the less likely outcome, so that the first number is larger than the second. So in this case, you'd say that the odds against getting two heads are 3:1. As for why this is the case... my best guess is that odds are most often used for betting, and in that context you can then interpret the odds as a fraction that indicates how much of your bet you get back if you win. For instance, if I put up $100 on a 3:1 bet and won, I would get $400 back, resulting in a net gain of $300, which is 3/1 times the amount I paid.

Yeah, true, fair enough. But the logarithm of it is still –1.1, so mathematically it's the same as the fraction 1/3.

(uhhhh log-odds are the context in which I'm most likely to interact with odds in my day-to-day life, see)

I was quite far behind against Lord Rattington, but confident that I could catch up using Torturer chains (he always discards).
Then one turn I only managed to play 2 Torturers, and his remaining card was... Lighthouse.
Hmm, so my Torturer plan might not work. Tell you what, I'll buy some Rabbles and get him with those instead.

I trashed a ghost because what's the point if you have drawn your whole deck every turn and can't find anything with it?

ugh

SMH

Worst part is, it was DAYS later that I realized you could buy an action, and THEN play the ghost, and hit exactly the action you want to double.

My favorite card was Harem for so long.

Can't really accept that it actually sucks :'(

Well, I wouldn't say that it sucks. It's pretty much on par with the basic supply cards. Usually there's something better in the kingdom, but Harem is strong enough on its own that you just need a weak kingdom and then you buy Harem, it's not like Bureaucrat etc. where you need a crazy edge case for the card to be good.

I still don't know the Knights names off the top of my head, other than Dame Anna cus that's the best one. I just think of them as "the +2 cards Knight", "the +2 Actions Knight", etc. I suspect the same thing will happen for Boons and Hexes. "The trashing Boon", "The +card Boon", etc. And I just had to Google for 'Bag of Gold'.

There are a few mnemonics. Dame Sylvia is a terminal silver. The Forest's Gift is the Woodcutter effect. War has the same effect as Warrior.

That said, I mistook Magic Lamp for Haunted Mirror last night and was surprised I didn't get a Ghost.

Knights are less of a problem for me because you are rarely presented with just the card name, and rarely do you need to care about more than which one is on top. They also spend time in your deck and in your hand, so you have more opportunities to associate what they do with the name and image.

Boons, on the other hand, are trickier. The art is no help, since they are seen for such a brief moment and depict landscapes rather than people. Some of the names provide hints, as AJD pointed out, but I still have trouble with about half of them.

Here's the best I can do:

Mountain - gives a Silver, like from a dwarf mine or something
Flame - fire destroys your stuff, except your fortress of fortitude
Wind - blows some cards into your yard, then blows some cards out
Forest - you find the old Woodcutter in the forest, but he's old and depressed so he's not as good
Sea - the waves wash a soggy card to your feet
River - the river floods, but when the waters recede, a soggy card is left at your feet
Moon - it's dark but then the moon rises and you find that crappy card you were looking for
Sky - uhh.. it starts raining gold and you drop everything else you had to pick it up
Swamp - you tap one swamp and summon a flying, regenerating chump blocker
Sun - in the light of day you see how crappy your future is and decide to do something about it
Field - This one is just bazaar
Earth - umm, it's like a plein air workshop or something. I don't know. This one doesn't make much sense.

Sea: Sea-side has some good draw cards like Ghost Ship and Wharf
River: Related to Sea's Gift though common water theme, so remember that this is the draw boon that isn't Sea's Gift
Moon: Scavenger works in the moonlight
Sky: Where the rainbows leading to a pot of Gold can be seen
Field: that boon which starts with an 'F' but isn't Forest's Gift (that maps to Woodcutter), so it's the one that gives +1 Action instead of +Buy, and it also reminds me of the Farming Village art
Earth: Salt the Earth is a 4-cost event, and this gains a 4-cost card
Sun: uhh, well that Cartographer might be happier working under the sunlight instead of by candlelight.

When talking about an avatar, there are 2 things that matter to me more than how viable a card is:

1) How much fun I've had with the card
2) How much I like the artwork

The artwork is my favorite in the game, and an On-Buy Remodel is a fun concept to me. Although I rarely buy Farmland, the games where I built decks around them when it was new were fun. I probably got my ass kicked, but I had fun, which is a primary goal of a game after all ;)

Of course, sometimes criteria #1 and #2 also align with a stronger card. ;D

I usually got really lucky in Possession games, so I liked playing with Possession. Then they removed it :(

Anyway I like Black Market so much that I force it in about half my games, and will buy it within the first few turns even when it's an obviously terrible idea

More of a "did you know".. but I don't want to create a new topic.

Haunted woods block night cards and force you to top deck them. Topdeck "whenever you buy a card".. It just kind of cost me a game. Ouch.

I actually don't like ShiT. It's better than any other implementation we've seen so far, but Dominion is a very complex-to-play game and the client doesn't do enough to make it feel more effortless, and also the loading times are longer than they should be due to being a browser based client.

I'm still not a fan of ShIT and I never had issues with MF (other than the fact it took them forever to get Adventures up and running).

I think that if Harbinger cost $2 instead of $3 and Bureaucrat and Mine were removed from 2nd edition Base Dominion, it would be the best Dominion set.

But if you have 5, that means your opponent doesn't get to have an even number either.

True. I guess I'd almost rather have 4 if it meant my opponent having 6 than us both having 5.

Bureaucrat and Mine are fine. They're a bit on the weak side, but cool enough to get away with it. Especially Mine.

I also think 2nd edition Base Dominion is one of the better sets, just after my favorites, Adventures and Prosperity.

Whenever there's a junker on the board, I will over-buy it to excess and build a deck around playing them as quickly as possible. Less because I think cursing itself is good, but more because I hate dealing with deck junking. After all, you don't have to worry about curses if you opponent has all 10 of them.

(Oh, and if there is rats + any trash-for-benefit on the board, I will buy rats. There is no exceptions to this rule. Anybody who forgoes rats in a set where rats can be used will be silently but sternly disapproved of. Cowards.)

But that's a completely valid strategy unless it's one of the weaker junkers like Sea Hag or Marauder.

Isn't that just what you do? I think of giving an opponent a junk card as the same as trashing one of their Labs, so Witch is sort of like Sir Destry but it always hits a Lab.

Most of the time, yeah. But I can think of several games I’ve lost where I’ve went all out for cursing on boards with amazing trash/defense, and end up essentially junking my deck with suboptimal cards whilst my opponent remains somewhat unaffected.

Really, I’ve only very recently learned that when there’s something like Chapel or the Sauna split pile in the game, immediately buying 3 cursers is just...not a good idea?

Cursers are still good in Sauna  or Chapel games, unless the opponent is already overdrawing their deck. They'll get rid of the Curses eventually, but just having the Curse for one shuffle is already a strong attack and any more than that is just extra.
