As of yesterday, Dominion Scavenger has a recorded 2.301.038 2p games in the leaderboard (29k players). (plays/2)
Does anybody know whether they started recording them on 1.1.17 or later?

Later - the ranking system wasn't released until March 31 (http://forum.shuffleit.nl/index.php?topic=604.msg5892#msg5892). Also, games with bots are never rated on ShuffleIT, so they wouldn't be captured at all.

Yes, I don't think any of the above mentioned systems counted bot games.
Thanks for the correction regarding the rating system, I had forgotten. Updating the post. :)

The Goko Salvager initially included bot games (that's how I ended up high in the leader board for some time 😀😉). AI changed this at some point, but I don't remember exactly when this happened.
Also, unrated games were never included by definition.

I've played a game of Dominion on my phone while in the middle of a IRL game of Dominion!

Dominionception achieved?  Did you win either game?

I once played a 6P IRL game with 4 first time players. I could have played a league match between each of my turns.

Never again!

If I'm teaching Dominion to a group of IRL 6 players, I set up two 3-player kingdoms on opposite ends of the table, play one game, then have everyone switch seats and play the other kingdom. It's faster, more fun, a better experience, and underscores the dramatic differences between kingdoms and replayability of the game.

It's like the Dominion player's hell.

All 6-player games should use a card like Scrying Pool to keep players engaged while it's not their turn.
