You know you're a bit preoccupied with Dominion when.........
« on: September 30, 2017, 01:08:36 am »

You hear someone say "Thief", "Militia", "Witch", "Spy", or "Bureaucrat", and reflexively respond with "moat!"

"Duration" has become an even more positive word
No offense to other games, but you're a bit apalled when their tokens aren't metal
When a board for 6 players is suggested, you feel like perhaps we should play two 3 player games instead?

When playing other DBG, you make sure you have enough actions to play cards, and buys to buy extra cards, even when it ain't relevant

You automatically count for 10 cards when picking up your typical pile.. on the table, taking it from the box, or returning it to the box

You've memorized all the cards for the next set/release/promos!
If not, you'll know them way before you know it!

You look forward to telling people why "big money equals instant win" isn't true by a long shot

You read all articles on DS.com
You read all articles on BGG.com
You read all of the designer diaries

The 3/4 split, 4/3 split, 5/2 split, and 2/5 split mean something to you
You work out case scenarios for each of those opening hands

You look at random Kingdom cards and setups... online, at your FLGS, at game groups, at cons, etc., and wonder how YOU would go about that set

One set of cards has the wear marks of heavy usage, in sharp contrast to your brand new cards in other cards
You know a bit too much about card sleeves
You know the differences between brands, and thicknesses of them

You spend a good deal of time researching and devising storage and carry solutions

Seeing 2 empty piles in any board game puts you on high alert

When watching the Olympics, you have to take a moment to wonder why the bronze medal isn't the copper medal
You wonder why there's no platinum medal

You forget that Dominion is also the name of a titling company, power company, windows company, an alien race... a gazillion other things really

baklava, Chihuahua, gold clinking in your hands, lead into gold (or anything better than lead), the eggs are on the plate, making your grandparents proud (but not to worry what your parents think)

While you're still playing the beginning of a game, you're already thinking how great the next game will be (proof positive that there's not much difference between Dominion and crack!  :o )
"Just one more game!"
"Let's try the same setup!  I want to go a different path this time!"
If you're not going to win, you make sure you sit to the right of the player you think who WILL win the game
It's easier to just leave the game out for the next time you play

You nod in agreement with a tournament organizer modding Dominion games that randomizing kingdom cards for multiple tables, from just one complete series of sets of Dominion (from base game to whatever the latest expansion is) is kind of a "ghetto" way of doing it; as opposed to each table having their own complete set.

"The Donald" of course refers to Donald X  :-X

When you consider "throne", "king", "crown", "disciple", "procession", "chapel", "bonfire", "farmland", "ironworks", "workshop", and "alms" to be verbs.

When you internally groan when hearing about a country Rebuilding after a disaster.

Playing Legendary and getting giddy over all those cards that let you trash cards from your deck. And then everyone looking at me like I'm crazy.

New verbs are really among the best reasons to start Dominion.

Hey now, king and crown, at least, have already been verbs for a while.

3 GREAT WAYS OF GETTING RID OF YOUR TRASH THAT YOU'D NEVER THINK OF (YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE NR 3!)
  • Take it to chu.. chapel. Chapel it. Efficient. Gets the job done. Curses? Psh, no problem! Coppers? Anytime! They'll even take your property you wish you didn't inherit!
  • Bonfire it! Gather the whole town to let them excitingly watch you bonfire your leftover coppers! Too bad your estates are all inflammable... you could've made the best bonfire the town would've ever seen!
  • Farmland it. You see, peasants are magicans in disguise.

... you can’t believe shops are charging real money for things made of copper.
... you see people actually paying their hard earned cash on said objects.
... people find you crazy when you tell them what you really think about estates («hey, I guess they’re nice in a pinch. But then again, probably not...»)
... you ponder why peddlers become cheaper the more stuff you do.

You have one (or more, depending on the situation) IRL friend that you play Dominion with pretty heavily, and when somebody else brings up say, the word "Pawn" in a completely unrelated context, and you make some joke about choosing "+1 Action" and "+1 Buy", or something like that, and you and your friend are the only two people in the room that get the joke and laugh/giggle at it...

This is completely off topic, but man, does that ellipsis in the title drive me crazy. 9 periods is waaay to many.

I always eat dinner while playing a couple more games. There's actually a very good chance that I'm eating dinner in the meantime whenever I'm playing Dominion.

I choose to never eat when playing dominion, because I play primarily IRL and I don't want to gt my cards messy
