Hey guys,

I would appreciate it if anyone who has time would answer this survey on common Dominion mistakes people are still making.

I'd like to take the responses I get and do a writeup analyzing common skill plateaus and trends beyond the basic level:

I appreciate the fact that the only possible placings are "decent player" "better than average player" and "highly skilled player", but I question how accurate of a division that is.

Bomb, Cannon, and many of the Gunpowder cards can strongly effect gameplay, particularly in a destructive way

Is this supposed to be about rules mistakes, or strategy mistakes?

The proper term is "rejoice in your shared victory."

Come to think of it, people rejoicing in shared victory has become as much a trope in boardgame design as frivolous means of determining who goes first.

Now I want to see a game where in the event of a tie the players commiserate in their shared loss.

My game tells players to battle it out to the death. Does that count?

I'm pretty sure people on the internet have been telling Donald he's playing Dominion wrong for years.

And even then, losing is still relative.  Losing against a excellent players can mean you'll kick ass against a group of winners.  Each who were the winners of their groups
