How Many Games do you play?
« on: January 22, 2019, 12:43:13 pm »

My opponent asked "How many games do other people play?"
Now that I am back into playing Dominion again (and play testing my Fan Cards)
I average about 1 game every 2 days (regular) and play test about 1 card per week.
And if possible, how often do you 'replay' prior Kingdoms or do you prefer to randomize
Thanks

I don't play very much at all nowadays, but when I did, I played around 5-20 games a day, randomizing every time.

tbh I don't remember the last time I played Dominion, on account of a lack of opponents

Maybe you should try to lower your standarts for opponents?

my standards for opponents are "want to play dominion and are in the same place as me and also one or more dominion boxes"

It's way easier to say "Want to play dominion" Makes it even easier

"Want to play dominion and is online right now" also works well

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

I bet people who randomize don't replay many kingdoms.

they don't have to re-randomize. they could play it again. At least if they're playing the paper version.

The vast majority of games played by people here are played online.

I thought most did both. You don't really go into online if you don't have the actual one

Doing both doesn't contradict what he said though. Even if almost everyone who plays online also plays in person, they will play far more games online than in person. This is because online games take much less time and effort.

I play IRL usually once a week. (Sunday night, with my wife, after the kids have gone to bed.) I've never played online.
