4 days, 0 minutes
« on: May 04, 2012, 01:31:17 am »

Hi, I'm Dsell and I've spent 4 days and 0 minutes looking at this forum (well, a tad more now). Wow. I started playing Dominion a whole bunch in real life back in January, and started reading f.ds and playing on isotropic about the same time in early march. This is a pretty awesome community here and I've learned SO much from the contributions of the members and from playing (well, mostly losing to...) you guys as well.

I love board games of all types (shout out to Cosmic Encounter!) and I really want to try to become a top Dominion player someday. Also, I think it's WAY cool that the master himself, Donald X. frequents the forums. I still pause in reverential awe every time I see one of his posts.

Overall, 4 days well spent!

I, too, enjoy Cosmic Encounter, though it's a very strange game.  I don't know how to put my finger on it but it's just very ... unique.  In a good way.

Also, I think it's WAY cool that the master himself, Donald X. frequents the forums. I still pause in reverential awe every time I see one of his posts.
I think it's fitting because Donald X. happens to also be very, very good at Dominion.  This is not true of all game designers, but is definitely true in this case.

So now we know Donald X is Doug Z and possibly WW.  Man, who else could he be?

It seems to really depend on the group you play with. In a lively group, it's crazy and extremely tense nearly every time. But I agree, I think it's unique in that you can gang up on the leader, occasionally has glaring balance issues, and sometimes you never even get a turn...and it's still great. A few house rules (we play with double powers, hidden until used) can really enhance the game too.

I think what I love most about that game is that it's so very different each time, keeping the flavor and interactions fresh.

For me, I treat Cosmic Encounters as the opposite to Nuclear War. In the former, we (generally) consider it a success if as many people win at the same time as possible. Of course, being the only winner is never a BAD thing. In the latter, the game is only truly successful if the world blows up and everybody dies.

Which one I want to play usually depends on how our boys did in their latest baseball game...  :-\

Oh man, not us. I get the feeling that every group has their own way of playing, but we tend to be helpful and wonderfully diplomatic up until someone gets their fourth planet. Then, with relatively few exceptions, they are on their own, with every ship and card people can spare going up against them. Sure, it drags the game on a bit, but it does give you a real sense of accomplishment when you finally do win (especially when you absolutely obliterate everything your 5 opponents can muster against you).

I do remember one game though, that was just an absolute stalemate. After 5 hours, I ended up trading four planets with someone for the shared win, and only because our guests had to leave. :P

Hehe, every CE game we play is basically the same:

Everyone invites everyone for everything (barring past grievances).
Someone is at 4: We must stop inviting him.
Someone else hops to 5 via Artefact/Flare/Power.

Yeah this is totally my group of Cosmic friends. Idk how it will go on the forum but we always do whatever we can to stop someone from getting a guaranteed win. Sometimes the girls will go "girl power" and agree to share a win, though. I hate it. ::)

So, I just noticed that I've passed WanderingWinder in time spent on the forum. He was number one at the time I wrote this introduction, but I'm only number three now!

It really does make it seem that way! I do spend a lot of time over at forum games, but I read most Dominion-related things too. Sometimes I'll comment but I am not nearly as much of an expert as a lot of people in those areas. I would play more actual Dominion but the forum takes all my time! :P
