Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry

Okay, this is a thread to post games where you did something that made you actually feel sorry for your opponent. Post the game, explain why you are sorry, and let discussion ensue. Here's one to get the ball rolling:

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110724-031944-b624ac7c.html

The score graph says it all. I build a Scrying Pool deck that can comfortably draw itself every single turn, with King's Courts thrown in for good measure. I then pull the only Possession out of the Black Market and proceed to play 4 times as many turns as my opponent does for the rest of the game. Rubric3, I am sorry. Thanks for sticking it out until the end though!

I have a fondness for decks with 3-4 Torturers in them...  I always feel a little bad for my opponents when I get them going (particularly if they're newer/lower-ranked and it may be the first time it's happening to them).  Sucks to be consistently hit with multiple Torturers every turn.

One game from a long time ago: KC-Saboteur-ambassador-pirate ship stuff. I forgot what was the card that tied them together, but I am at a point where I can feed my opponent 6 coppers a turn, pirate 3, and sabotage 3 times. The game went to a point where the card he bought was immediately sabotaged and he could almost never draw it in hand, while my pirate ships grew to $10 or something.

I remember once reducing my deck down to chapel, pirate ship, bazaar, saboteur, saboteur. My opponent was ostensibly winning and it would have been a risk for me to buy any cards since my opponent could potentially sabotage my pirate ship and leave me without any spending. On the other hand his deck wasn't progressing as I could sabotage and pirate each turn. He quit in rage eventually, which is rather sad as he should have won by buying a high cards, letting them sabotage down as victory points, and exhausting three piles.

Yes, I feel immediately sorry for the Torturer scenario.  As soon as you see Torturer + a source of 2 actions... you know with 97% certainty that the game is going to be ugly, and one player isn't going to want to play dominion again for a while after it.

Losing due to torturer lock is one of the few times that I'll break my rule of "never waste a loss by ragequitting"

So I really like double-Tactician decks, but of course they require cards with +$ on them otherwise you're going nowhere. Well I was playing a game where I wanted to go for such a deck, and the only virtual cash Actions were Pirate Ship and Mountebank. Salvager (technically also virtual cash I guess) and Upgrade were available for trashing, and I chose the more reliable and harmful Mountebanks for the cash. The village du jour was City, and the +2 card effect never mattered; may as well have been a normal Village.
Working with just Mountebanks for money you need 4 to buy a Province, so that's generally what I was working toward, but I didn't exactly figure out I should get 4 Mountebanks and stop playing Salvager; I bought a Gold near the end that just got Salvaged the next turn before figuring that out. Really this just dragged it out for my poor opponent, since I was playing multiple Mountebanks every turn...and then there's the real kicker: Ghost Ship. Every turn. He resigned once I bought my fourth Mountebank, and at the time he still technically had a lead of 5 points.

tl;dr: My double-Tactician deck used Mountebanks for cash, and I also was playing a Ghost Ship every turn, before the Mountebanks of course. My opponent resigned once I bought my fourth Mountebank.

Naturally you'd be wondering who would let me do all that without picking up a Ghost Ship or Mountebank for themselves...turns out it was the Larry.

Game log.

[Edit]
I think just looking at the contents of my final deck does just as much to describe my opponent's pain as my whole post does...
[13 cards] 4 Cities, 4 Mountebanks, 2 Tacticians, 1 Ghost Ship, 1 Salvager, 1 Province

One more game, but I can keep this post short. This one was against mikemike, and the three relevant words are...King's Court, Ambassador. My final deck had 1 Copper and 28 other cards, his final deck had 10 Curses, 46 Coppers, and 28 other cards.

But isn't it only rage quitting if you post some hate/smack talk before quitting? More often now if I'm clearly losing and watching my oppenent play a 10 card chain and leaving me with nowhere to go I'll simply congratulate them for playing well and resign (only in 1 v 1, quitting in a 3/4 player game often affects the outcome).

I can take being beaten (it happens very often) but if there is nothing to learn I don't waste my time.

Perhaps we need to adopt a term for resigning gracefully to counter rage quit.

I often build Torturer-based draw decks and when my opponent's nag about them, I always tell them: "I need them for the draw!".

It's annoying after the Curses run out and they still have to pick if they want to discard; I guess this is only useful with:

  • Menagerie
  • Library / Watchtower
  • Trade Route (you don't want to trash and it's your 3rd card to play)
  • Trading Post for the same reason, but you want to trash just 1 card
  • Shanty Town

I probably forgot some...

Perhaps we need to adopt a term for resigning gracefully to counter rage quit.
Harakiri? Maybe some ranking penalties for rage quits and no penalty and a nice text for graceful defeats?

"You realize you can not beat your opponent. You decide to commit Harakiri and suffer an honourable death. Your family will be looked after for the rest of their lives."

I do my best to resign gracefully (unless I tell my opponent I intend to resign, and then he continues to play another 5 minute turn), I meant rage quitting from the perspective of being so angry I close my browser, instead of going back into the lobby and using my 1st player advantage to challenge some unsuspecting high level player.

I don't think it's THAT rude to play as if the game was carrying on until it's natural conclusion even if your opponent has told you they intend to resign. I mean, if you want to resign, go ahead when it is your turn. But there's no chance I'm dropping the Torturer lock so that you can decide you're not actually going to resign because now you've got a turn with 2 Fishing Villages and 3 Torturers in your hand.

I just finished one of these.  I don't think I've ever felt more guilty playing a game of dominion before.  I had my opponent in a KK/alchemist/pirate ship/spy lock.  They didn't get on the bandwagon fast enough.  Every turn I played KK on alchemist/spy to draw my deck and find their treasure.  Then I played the KK/pirate ship to steal the treasure from their deck.  The most painful part was that there was no plus buy.  So even though my pirate ships were worth $12ish, I could only buy one colony per turn making it a slow and torturous (discard 2 or take a curse anyone...) game for them.

I completely dismantled this poor person's deck with a kc/sab.  I think most of us have been on the losing end of kc decks and it is a very disheartening way to lose.  On the other hand, I do not pull punches with newbies that accept auto-matches with me and it was, in my opinion anyway, the dominant strategy in this kingdom.

I've been that person (the one who gets told that his opponent is going to resign, and then takes a long turn).  It's a little hard for me to figure out what to do.  I mean, yes, he told me he's going to resign, and that's great and I try to play fast.  But it's some random dude on the internet, y'know?  How am I supposed to know if he'll keep his word?  I don't want to throw away a winning game because my opponent psy-opped me.

I agree. If there's some way to keep a stable advantage in a quick turn, I'll do it. Or, if it's someone I know, like you, Frisk, I'll just trust you. But generally I'll play my turn.

If you're in a situation where your opponent could possibly win by you skipping a turn, you're probably not in a situation where your opponent will claim he is resigning.  If you ARE in one of those situations, go right ahead and take your 5 minute turn, the game's not over yet.

rod-, the situation I'm thinking of is some kind of mega-pin (or maybe just a big alchemist or scrying pool chain). If you let them out of the pin, there's no telling what they could do.

I think that there are plenty of games where you can go from essentially 100% chance of winning to, you know, 80% chance of winning by skipping a turn.  Sure, I could skip my mega-turn, and still PROBABLY win, but I want to DEFINITELY win.  I agree that that's kind of ultra-competitive and lame of me, but I'm not sure that there's an alternative.

(I note that I've played against Captain Frisk and agree that he's a gentleman and I would be happy to take his word for a resign.  But random handle I've never met?)

By all means, play your last turn against a random player.  The flip side of this is to truncate your megaturn any time you can safely end the game with a win.

I also don't pull punches with newbs who accept automatches with me. And this was the first time I'd ever gotten all eight colonies, so it made me pretty happy. I appreciate the guy for hanging in there and letting me have that feeling.

I come from a very competitive background (Varsity/minor league baseball growing up, competitive cards, and even the competitive workplace)... so the very thought of giving my opponent a break simply does not register to me.

IMO, if it's a "rated" match, it qualifies as a competitive environment. There is nothing I would ever do to reduce my winning percentage (excluding ethics/moral issues, such as declining to abuse some programming bug, etc).

If someone is playing anonymously for a non-rated game, then sure, I'll skip my turn, heck I'd even resign myself and in my head know that I won. But if it's a rated game, even though there's really no money involved... it's rated, it's competitive. 

Someone says they'll resign on their turn? Sure go for it, but first you are going to sit through my turn, because I'm going to quad-province after my 2 min combo. If you don't like it, go take a bio break and resign when you get back, but I'm not giving away any edge. Life is tough. Nut-up Sally.

Speaking of beating up on Newbies, I am quite sorry about this game: 

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110807-183008-d931a3d1.html

It is never a good thing if one player gains all 5 prizes.  I was mildly disappointed that I didn't manage to get more buys on my last turn.  I should probably have used Princess on my last KC, but it only gives more buys, so I was hoping for better.


This other game I am sorry about mostly because I stumbled into this combo on accident. 

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110717-141335-8fd56ee6.html

I didn't realize what I was doing until I was already doing it.  The game started out with me thinking I was dead in the water on turn 3 drawing $1P (and all my Estates) on a Familiar board.  I was happy to take my consolation prize of back to back $5 hands which got me two Minions.  I got my first Familiar on turn 6, and then proceeded to draw all 3 Estates again.  I picked up a Lighthouse with my $2 hand, but being the mediocre player that I am, I didn't realize just how amazing it was in this setup until I started playing it.  From that point on, I blocked all incoming Familiar attacks, cycled to mine using Minions and drove the Curse split to 6-2 before my opponent decided it was over and resigned.

Dear Opponent,

In re http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110809-110704-5b121eed.html I'm sorry...

- that Scrying Pool turns take so long to play
- that your Swindler was somewhat unlucky in the early game
- that I failed to notice I could end the game on turn 15, simply by Ambassadoring you the last two Throne Rooms at the end of the turn
- that it'll probably be awhile until the next time I see Scrying Pool + University + Throne Room on the same board

I am sorry that:
- Isotropic still wants us to decide on Treasuries and Alchemists after the game has ended

I am amazed by:
- My opponent sticking around the entire game and watching me buy 8 Colonies and even saying "gg" afterwards

Dear opponent,

I am deeply sorry I trashed ALL of my treasures and let you keep buying pirate ships and thieves for some time before I pointed out the fact that I had no treasures. I'm also sorry I proceeded to buy all 8 colonies after doing so.

Yes it is another one of those torturer runs but with the added wrinkle of being combined with 8 Minions, University and Menagerie

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110717-172656-91dbb639.html

I didn't feel bad until the engine halted for a turn with only 1 torturer and nothing else and my opponent was unable to do anything anyway.

Just had my house mate rage quit on me in real life. I had Chapeled everything except action cards, and had a Village chain going (Some were Cities, but no piles had gone). I was drawing my deck almost every turn, which contained 3 Mountebanks, and also a couple of Bridges. He had decided against buying Mountebanks in favour of Cities and Festivals, had been trashing with a Lookout, and bought a couple of Estates to support his Baron. Suddenly, after I Mountebanked him for about the 9th, 10th and 11th times, he stood up and said "I quit! There's no point playing if you're going to draw all your cards every turn." And he started packing up the cards.

We've both got into Dominion in the past month or so, and have been playing nearly every day. Although I'm now wondering if he'll play with me again any time soon...  :-\

Here's a better Torturer run.  ;D

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110816-195801-745c9500.html

I Tortured 16 times, including 5 in one turn, 3 in one, and a couple of 2s. I finally won the game when my opponent took the last Curse, with Torturers and Villages already gone.

He finished with 9 Curses.

In the game I just played:

— mqs's turn 16 —
mqs plays a Potion, a Harem, and 2 Silvers.
mqs buys a Possession.
(mqs reshuffles.)

— Your turn 16 —
You play a Jester.
... You get +$2.
... mqs draws and discards a Possession.
... You gain a Possession.
You play 3 Coppers.

Yes, that was his first possession.

Here's another one I have a lot to be sorry for.

Double tactician? Check.
King's courting bridges? Check.
Swindling his bridge into a curse? Check
Remaking coppers into golds and golds into provinces? Check and check.

Jonts20 doesn't mention:

Winning the game 70 to -2.
That King's courting bridges, swindling his opponent's bridge into a curse, and remaking Golds into Provinces all happened on the same turn (the turn where he gained two Provinces, bought 4 more Provinces, a Colony, and 4 Duchies.  Ouch).

See my turn 18. Although to be fair, he brought that upon himself. Nobody buys Masquerade in a Possession game, let alone a King's Court Possession game.

*Fondly remembers the game where opponent kings courted 2 wharves then I king's court possessed him and broke out his king's court ambassador*...

Too bad he quit before the game ended :/

Yes, but I'm sure when you do it you have plans to ditch the Masquerade before you get Possessed.

Not usually. Masquerade is just SO good. The game's going to be so short. If they go for possession, they'll get to play it... maybe once before the end of the game? And then they have to hit a hand where I have the masq. And I'm probably up enough that that swing isn't necessarily going to swing the game anyway. But I mean, it is on my mind. If there is something else that looks good, I'll go for that to avoid this issue.

I would also keep masq in a possession game. I think masq should be able to outrace it.

I've searched a bit and expected to find some games where you went straight Masqu + BM against Possession.
But I wasn't very successful ;-)

This example is about reversed roles (however he didn't go for direct Masq + BM):
http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110522-164420-3cfd2fd0.html

I thougt about this one, but immediately after Possession was gained the game ended:
http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110703-125038-28e6a1f9.html

Very funny is this game in which you started with Gardens(!) in reaction to his potion.
http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110426-132502-ad937a46.html

In all other games you had Possessions too or opponent had none.

I don't have any idea what I was thinking in the first and third games. The second game is more of my point, though a bit lucky for me to get that good of a version of it. These games are all months old (the first one is a little over three months, the second one about 7 weeks, the third one 4 months), which is a function of 1) a specific two cards being in a set is rare, and 2)people don't want to play with possession.
Also, I rarely go 'straight' masq w/money, against anything. My comment was meant to be how I would play on a generic board with those cards today, as clearly I don't necessarily think what I've done in the past is best - who opens gardens?!?! I mean, I love gardens, but really???

I'm sorry the Tributes worked out so well for me on the last turn of http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110831-002231-cd2582a8.html

Dear lipman,

I'm sorry I got such a lucky reshuffle on turn 11 of http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110830-094550-842ec3bc.html, and I'm sorry I used so many of your own Tournaments against you on turn 15.

While that is pretty amazing, at least you didn't Curse him with the Jester. That would be about the worst loss I've seen.

c) saboteuring you almost every turn
d) trashing your only colony

Thanks for not exiting, I may have done it if I were in your place...

Dear boondoggle:

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201109/09/game-20110909-140420-fa048cd0.html

I'm sorry for not having the faintest idea what the score was, and thus playing very conservatively with a Saboteur/Saboteur/Jester pin while buying one Province per turn.  The end of that game was full of my turns taking forever and your deck getting worse.  I have been there, and it is not fun.

Dear chaos,

I'm sorry I carried out the rest of my last turn in our Univ/Bishop/Rabble game earlier today. If I'd been thinking about the score at all I'd have realized I was ahead and just hit "End Turn" the moment the third pile emptied.  But thank you for not only sticking around but also chatting about the board post-game!

Dear (everyone I've played on isotropic the past week or so),

I'm sorry I've been a whiny/snippy jackass. Playing atrociously or even getting unlucky is no reason to be a bad on-line human being.

I'm sorry that despite activating Treasure Map on not one but two separate occasions, and thus gaining 8 Gold, you did not win.

Dear my opponent,

Thank you for being such a good sport after I ended the game by getting off my Village-TR-CouncilRoom-Village-TR-TR-Market-CouncilRoom-Witch-Village-Village-TR-Market-CouncilRoom-Goons-Goons-Goons-Goons turn and won the game 73–3. A lot of newbie players wouldn't have been all "I'm impressed by that.... thanks for the lesson" after a game like that.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201109/17/game-20110917-002527-e2414e42.html

What is pictured here: Me winning partly due to going first, and mostly because drawing 2 copper + 3 estate on turn 4, then Bishop and no estates on turn 5 really really hurts.

What is not pictured: I literally spent at least 2 minutes, probably closer to 4 minutes with an action in between, trying to figure out how to make $22 on the last turn. It's too bad you can't see my hand in the log...Let's just say that King's Court + Bishop + Horse Traders + a big enough hand that playing even one more card than needed could make me discard a Platinum I needed for the $22= really big AP.

(If people are curious my hand after KC-KC-Rabble was 2x Horse Traders, 1x Bishop, 1x KC, 1x Haven, 1x Plat, 2x Silver, 1x Copper, 5x Victory cards. I thought I was out of treasure, and I could only get up to $21. Eventually just played the Haven and ended up drawing another Plat, rendering all the previous minutes pretty useless)

This game I just played: I manage to possess my opponent on the turn that he otherwise would've hit with menagerie four times and would've won three prizes with tournament. Although he managed to take a huge lead by gaining four duchies in a turn (with Remake and Tournament), I manage to draw Possession again near the top of the reshuffle and buy the last two provinces.

Dear Dash Berlin,

I am sorry that on a Tournament board, my Smithy/Silver opening snagged a Province on the first reshuffle (Turn 3?? Or might have been Turn 4), and activated my first Tournament on Turn 6, despite your Turn 5 Torturer.

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20110930-072356-2eedbc5f.html

Dear My Opponent,

I am sorry that you went for Thief in a 2 player game with Scrying Pool, Throne Room, Conspirator, Workshop, Woodcutter, and Peddler, although I did appreciate the help in trashing my Coppers. I'm also sorry that my shuffle luck (Workshop-Copper-Potion-Estate x 2 on the first shuffle and your Thief trashing my Potion on the third shuffle) wasn't enough to make the game closer. Oh, and I'm sorry that you hadn't seen the Secret Chamber-Scrying Pool trick before.

(Game log should be available on councilroom tomorrow).

I opened Masquerade/Silver earlier today and had 4 Provinces by turn 9. The most perfect shuffle luck I've ever had. I was about to apologize for drawing so well when my opponent resigned and promptly left.

I would probably have won anyway since they opened Chapel and aggressively trashed all their bad cards (would have very shortly had to start passing me good cards on my Masquerades), but still.

I introduced dominion to some of my relatives recently.   After a few intro set games, we played a base + seaside game where I crafted a council room/fishing village/militia engine (4p).   While not the cruelest engine, it had the 'hope given ... dashed' factor.  Eg, boosting their hands up to about 7-8 cards while I drew my entire deck, then forcing them to discard down to 3.  We made it through about 3 hands like this before there was a group rage quit. >:(

Needless to say, this was probably a poor choice for introducing beginners to dominion, but at least I was able to convince them to play again a few days later.  ;)

Here's that Masquerade/Silver game with 4 Provinces by turn 9: http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20111010-092005-32afd7fc.html

God, I wish I could shuffle like that every day!

I would apologize to the guy I played yesterday (in my one episode of good luck... no, my one episode of better-than-nauseatingly-bad luck for the day) when I opened with Vault across from Council Room and got Gold at turn 3 followed by Provinces at turns 4 and 5, except that he ragequit and made me wait for the timeout so he's just a terrible person and I hope he dies screaming :-\

My dear opponent, I am sorry for putting together a golem-familiar-pirate ship engine on your first game on isotropic, and for finishing it slowly with vineyards since the third player had bought three early provinces.

I did apologise to the guy during play but it was still quite a harsh introduction. In fact he may never draw hands as bad again for as long as he plays Dominion!

I am not sorry for having a deck comprised of 3 Caravan, 1 Ambassador, 1 Silver, and 4 Golds on turn 11. You made some crucial errors allowing this to happen (ie, not buying Ambassador until my deck was already in this position).

I am also sorry for spending my next 6 turns buying Provences however.

Dear Zarathustra,

sorry I hit one of your provinces on the last turn with my swindler to give me the win.

I am not sorry for having a deck comprised of 3 Caravan, 1 Ambassador, 1 Silver, and 4 Golds on turn 11. You made some crucial errors allowing this to happen (ie, not buying Ambassador until my deck was already in this position).

I am also sorry for spending my next 6 turns buying Provences however.

I'm sorry that I bought the first possession... and then proceeded to buy 5 further possessions, mainly with your hands. Thankyou for sticking through that as long as you did.

I'm so sorry that you didn't realize that buying torturers was a REALLY bad idea on this particular board. If those pesky chapels and cities weren't there I'm sure it would have been a fine strategy.

That's really not a great board for buying pirate ships. Bazaars, conspirators, cities, bridges and oases should make for a very action heavy deck. Having someone pick your coppers out for you can only make it faster.

Dear luke,

After snooping through councilroom.com, I see you were once the victim of the KC-Goons-Masquerade pin.

Our game from today featured a board with King's Court and Goons, and a Black Market from which you were fortunate enough to get a Masquerade on turn 4. You were one turn away from pinning me when I won the game by emptying 3 piles on a turn which netted me 93 points.

I'm sorry that my first player advantage is what saved me.

I'm sorry that I had the luck of drawing at least one torturer for 10 straight turns, sometimes more than one for a total of 14 in 10 turns, starting 3rd turn.

Dear Matilainen,

I'm sorry for not warning you that in a game with Goons, Vault and Gardens in the tableau, it's generally a good idea to not let your opponent get all eight Tunnels.

Funnily enough your simulator likes this better without the chapel, and still doesn't think it is any better than courtyard/venture :) . Good but only so good. If you want to do something completely bonkers with your simulator you probably need tunnels ....

The simulator will play Chapel instead of Jack and then only trash 1 Copper, or play a Jack and not trash the Chapel when most of the trashing is done. So I wouldn't conclude that double Jack is better than Single Jack/Chapel based on simulations.

Dear Smartie,

You played a great game going straight money and Hunting Parties and getting to 4 Provinces in 12 13 turns. Any other day that would have been an easy win for you. You can't really argue with my 10 Golds though:

Hunting Party + Tunnel looks pretty good, especially if you can manage to skip Silvers. Obviously you really need an early Hunting Party here. If you don't get the 5/2 opening, something like Mining Village or Feast might be a good opening buy in games with HP + Tunnel.

Ah, Hunting Tunnels. I don't know, on a 3/4 opening you might not have the luxury of skipping Silvers; although Monument/Tunnel looks plausible as an opener too, hoping that everything turns out right for your first HP. But Turn 3 drawing 5 coppers after a 5/2 opening is just brutally good, and definitely worthy of this thread!

Dear Opponent,

I'm sorry I got the 5/2 split with Torturer and FV on the board... then pulled 5 Coppers on T3 for a second Torturer.  I would have resigned after 8 turns against that as well.

Dear nxo004, I am sorry.  I only intended to use the Governors to gain gold, then Watchtower hands full of Gold.  I swear this was just spur of the moment.  I'm not even a good player, I promise.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201111/18/game-20111118-152940-e335e849.html

On that note though, I had never thought of Watchtowering a Province and Tournament before that happened...  nice combo when you can actually pull it off.

Well I won't defend my play that game, which I don't think was the best, but I will say this. When you have a worker's village to peddler rush and you lose out on the peddlers badly, your deck of worker's villages suddenly becomes pretty terrible. But you certainly deserve credit for grabbing 7 colonies in 15 turns.

I don't think it came off as harsh at all. Your intention was clear. You may have gotten a little lucky. I mean, opening apprentice and then getting it with an estate the first three times around is nice. But you did play it well.

Dear Dominion While Intoxicated,

Registered just to post this because I felt so terrible.

I'm sorry I bought a single saboteur, played it once on the second-to-last turn and hit your Province, with which you would have won the game.

Would he have won the game if your saboteur would have been a duchy? That is (Duchy on your side against his Province) against (nothing on your side against Duchy (?) on his side), no difference.

Anyway: Welcome! :)

Dear Gherkin,

I'm sorry that I gained 5 gold on turn 13 through governer/KC combo, then trashed 5 gold for 5 provinces on turn 14 through the same combo.

And to make matters worse, you had a misclick and trashed a province on accident.

If I recall correctly, Provinces would have been 4-4-4 and he was ahead by at least a Duchy. But I'll post the Council Room log when it goes up.

Oh, I just reread your post. Given the three player I'm not sure the Duchy would have done it, but I'd have to check the log.

Edit: http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20111120-182337-bb645fb9.html Duchy would not have made the difference.

Dear jtwang,

I am sorry that when you used Governor to trash a gold for the last province, I just happened to have one of only 2 $4 cards in my hand and was able to gain a duchy to prevent your win.

I'm recently playing some games with my mother to show her the 2 newer expansions, few cards per game.
One game went like this:
First turn, I buy a Tunnel, she buys a Noble Brigand, revealing a Tunnel and a Copper, giving me a free Gold right before my second turn which made quite a difference. Now that was nice. :)

Please tell me she stole the Gold right back when she played Noble Brigand.

Dear jillybean:

Sorry this game devolved into a horrible pin game where you spent the entire endgame with 3-card turns:

Dear carebear,

I'm sorry. Despite Native Village is just not fast enough when my entire deck at turn 6 is Copperx2, Silver, Chapel, Governor. That kind of consistent advantage made the game rather lopsided. Please remember this game as an example of how powerful Chapel can be (I know I will remember).

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201111/26/game-20111126-214516-d5cd7d65.html

Ok, so maybe I posted this because I felt proud to have decided on a strategy before the first buy ... that's a major leap for me. :)

Dear Basia

The worst I've ever felt after a Dominion game was after I played you.

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20111023-131411-fa15f1c7.html

My last "turn" says it all.  I KC'd and TR'd a Possession and developed my Platinum into a province (so him possessing me wouldn't be effective any more, then took 5 turns in a row using his deck.

Cheers to Basia for being a great sport and congratulating me on a well played hand as I apologized for taking over like that.

My opponent ends the game with buying two colonies....and gaining 8 curses, after he spent the entire game mega-turning to king's court a thief and trash my entire economy.  It was not a fun game for me...it was even less fun for him to realize he lost by one point.


I opened Mining Village/embargo...WHAT?   He is a well above-average player.

Dear Vlad,

I'm sorry you opened Witch/nothing to my Silver/Silver and played 8 Witch (actually 9, but I managed to get two in there as well, so only 8 curses were dealt) on me by your 11th (!) turn, only to still lose pretty comfortably somehow. Kind of a crazy game, still not sure how I didn't lose horribly :)

Dear NinjaBus, I'm sorry about how ridiculously well I drew this game. The first couple turns are basically perfect given my buys I think: http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201112/06/game-20111206-124003-bbb4d701.html

6 Province (and a bonus estate) in 13 turns, despite "slowing down" (I use that turn loosely) in the midgame.

Dear Judgechild:

I'm sorry I <a href="http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20111206-083419-813a91ec.html">pulled a Margrave out of the Black Market on a Chapel/Governor Colony board with no +buy in the supply</a>, thus allowing me to grab free Gold and draw my whole deck with Governors, Margrave you down to three cards, and then buy multiple Colonies. The Black Market shouldn't even have been a good buy for me, since I had too many other terminal actions at the time.

Dear fatlinkz, I'm sorry that you failed to understand that playing my Bishop with your Possession results in ME gaining victory points, and doesn't actually trash the card from my deck.

I tried to explain it to you twice, but you apparently don't read the comment box.

I probably would have won anyway, but it sure helped that you donated 16 VPs to me - and trashed some money that you could have been spending.

Dear theParty,

I'm sorry Fools Gold is much more powerful that it seems, and I'm sorry I ended the game playing five of them with a market for a double province buy when it looked like both our decks were struggling.

Dear Mathguy,

I'm sorry I played followers on turns 11, 12, 13, and 14, and then again on turns 16 and 17 (http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20111113-195023-275a7021.html).  I guess there is dominion karma since you beat me 4-3 in the tournament after this had been our only previous game.

Talking about luck:

How I managed to buy 2 Witches before my 2nd reshuffle (T3 & 4) and NOT have them collide once, is beyond me.
They almost collided, but Trusty Steed saved the day.

My poor opponent who though about getting a Familiar ended up with 9 of the 10 Curses, managed to trash 2 of them, but got obliterated anyway.

Then there was the case of the lucky Tournaments: I had 1, he had 5, I ended up with 3 prizes. Then again, I had more Provinces of course. :) I took the Followers to give him the last Curse and eventually Princess to get that last Province. And of course he played Witch on his turn after the Followers hit, but the Curses were already gone. :p

Log: http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201112/16/game-20111216-051040-ce2780f7.html

In fact, I didn't have terminal collision once, except for two Expands, but I simply Expanded the Expand, so it wasn't like I had a completely dead Action card.

It suprised me my opponent didn't ragequit and managed to squeeze out a 'gg'.  ;D

Kudos to SANOOK for taking such a beating without ragequit. I've never been that lucky myself, but even when I get to play one or two Witches more than my opponent, I usually get to hear that I'm very, very lucky.

Sorry buggy,

After I opened Sea Hag / Silver and you opened Mountebank/- I was interested in seeing how it played out. When my turn 3 Sea Hag replaced the Mountebank you would have had turn 4 with a curse, and then turn 5 replacing your new Sea Hag as well. As we agreed in the chat, ouch.



Thanks for playing it out.

Dear Snapper and OlivierH,

Sorry I didn't play out my turns that much faster. Having Torturer and Border Village in the same kingdom was bad enough, but having Scout meant I could set up my draws, and having Remodel let me convert excess Coppers into Estates.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201112/18/game-20111218-002856-b6e347dd.html

Neither of you stuck around for much longer once I could continuously keep buying up more Border Villages, but I don't blame you.

This goes both on the boneheaded plays and the 'dear my opponent, I'm sorry' lists:

In a Worker's Village, Bridge, King's Court game, my opponent gets ridiculously bad luck - never managing to draw his King's Court with anything useful.  On turn 13, I double King's Court my Bridges.  Instead of buying out the Provinces I immediately conclude that I need to 3-pile to end the game.

Only to realize I can't 3-pile.  But I don't have enough buys to get the Provinces anymore because I've now wasted a bunch. 

Despite my idiocy, my opponent STILL can't draw his KC with a Bridge and is unable to close out the game.  So I, like the blind chipmunk who somehow still finds an acorn, stumble to victory by 3-piling it on the next turn.

— Davio's turn 1 —
   Davio plays 5 Coppers.
   Davio buys a Stables.
   (Davio draws: 2 Coppers and 3 Estates.)

— Davio's turn 3 —
   Davio plays 5 Coppers.
   Davio buys an Explorer.
   (Davio draws: 2 Coppers and 3 Estates.)

  — Davio's turn 5 —
   Davio plays a Stables.
   ... discarding a Copper.
   ... drawing 3 cards and getting +1 action.
   Davio plays an Explorer.
   ... gaining a Silver in hand.
   Davio plays 5 Coppers and a Silver.
   Davio buys a Market.
   (Davio reshuffles.)
  (Davio draws: 2 Coppers and 3 Estates.)

   — Davio's turn 8 —
   Davio plays a Market.
   ... drawing 1 card and getting +1 action, +1 buy, and +$1.
   Davio plays a Stables.
   ... discarding a Copper.
   ... drawing 3 cards and getting +1 action.
   Davio plays an Explorer.
   ... gaining a Silver in hand.
   Davio plays 4 Coppers and 2 Silvers.
   Davio buys a Gold.
   Davio buys a Scheme.
   (Davio draws: 2 Coppers and 3 Estates.)

So, I already started 5/2 and drew 2 Coppers with 3 Estates three more times after that! First time this has happened to me.
And that's right, I bought an Explorer! Sorry to my opponent, since I still won. :p

I got the King's Court +Masquerade part of the pin going, so I was trashing pieces of my opponent's hand every turn, but there were no discard attacks in the kingdom, so I couldn't completely lock them down.  Which meant they spent a huge number of turns sitting through my long-drawn-out Highway>KC+Masq turns, watching their deck be slowly trashed, trying desperately to see if there was something they could do to stop me from destroying their whole deck...and they did slow me down; each card they Masqueraded into my deck was one less that I could trash from their hand on the next turn, and at one point they even forced me to pass them one of the highways I wanted to keep, but really, I think they were doomed.

First time I've ever used KC+Masq...it's stupid.

I've used this thread semi-snarkily a few times, but this time is completely legit:

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201201/08/game-20120108-105848-9ae24b01.html

Dear NDOG332,

I am completely sorry that the first four times you played a Young Witch, I had one of my two Pawns (bane cards) in hand, while you never had one of your numerous Pawns in hand any of the eight times I played Young Witch.  That is the sign of an unjust God if ever there was one.

Sincerely,
Epoch

I pulled off the pin for the first time a couple days ago:

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120107-212753-32425df4.html

First turn that I left my opponent with 0 cards in hand, he just said "wow." He was somewhat new; said it was his first game with King's Court. I was quite happy to get it. :)

I'm sorry my deck exploded so soon, giving me 4 consecutive Provinces in turns 12, 13, 14 and 15, nagging some great cards with a KC'd Jester.
I'm even more sorry my deck crumbled shortly after, making us go through the motions of grabbing Gardens, Duchies and Estates until finally, at turn 30, you bought the last Province to put us both out of our misery.

I could have probably played more humane by buying some hard needed cash or other cards when I grabbed an (almost due to Gardens) unassailable lead.  I switched to auto pilot instead and just bought greens.  ;)

Hmm, well I haven't seen a kingdom like this come up in awhile, so I took a little longer to enjoy myself thoroughly.

$5: City, Ghost Ship, Treasury, Upgrade, Vault
$4: Bridge, Conspirator, Worker's Village
$3: Workshop
$2: Native Village

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201201/10/game-20120110-201607-600a884e.html

The turns were fairly tame for the most part, but I got a lot of VP on turn 16.

   — FishingVillage's turn 16 —
   FishingVillage plays a City.
   ... drawing 2 cards and getting +2 actions, +1 buy, and +$1.

   FishingVillage buys a Province.
   (FishingVillage draws: a Copper, a Province, a Worker's Village, a Silver, and a City.)

I let the other players know what I was up to too, right from the start. That they didn't try the same thing, meant I felt pretty confident about steamrolling them.

I probably should've started trashing a lot earlier, but I wanted to see if I could finish the game with all my Coppers and Estates remaining in my deck and no additional treasure. I couldn't get to that point though :( I really wanted to Workshop a Province too.

For those interested, I have the chat room log attached.

It was after midnight, and I wanted "just one more game".  I opened Silver/Moneylender, got a Turn 3 King's Court, and the best target I saw?  The lowly but flexible Pawn.

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120110-224006-9086c343.html

I then proceeded to buy 8 over my next 5 turns, while Moneylender cleared out my Coppers.  Apart from the inexplicable Coppersmith purchase at Turn 11 (yeah it helped my Horn of Plenty get to $7, but Herbalist is clearly better in a copper-free deck), I think it was a good strategy, and I probably was in a very good position.

BUT... it meant I was playing a ton of pawns every turn (14 on my last turn!).

And with my Horn able to nab more KC's, it was only going to get worse.

Now, I try very hard to avoid analysis paralysis (AP) on Pawns -- I think it's rude and saps fun from the game.  My strategy is usually clear enough in my mind that I know exactly what I want from my Pawns.  Even so... playing on my laptop with no mouse, it took a fair bit of time to click on everything I wanted to do.

My opponent resigned after my 14-Pawn, KC + double-Province turn.  Despite my dominant position, I was thinking of resigning myself, just because moving the trackpoint was so tedious!

That reminds me of Annotated Game #5, where DG crushes me with KC + Quarry + Pawn.  It's a pretty great strategy, I think, but totally not in my playstyle, and definitely has a ridiculously high time/turn ratio.

Sorry to both of my opponents for my IGG rush being so cruely effective and making the game more boring. Also sorry for buying a curse to end the game. That was a little bad mannered as it just rubbed in the big lead I had, but it had to be done to end it. GG

A different kind of sorry.

I'm sorry, jonts26, that I declined the auto-match proposals for us to play a game.
It's just, sometimes I pull up Iso to play a quick game without having to think that much, just to relax; it's nothing personal.

And I know that after I play a game with you or any other top 10 player, my brain will be hurting all over and I won't be able to sleep for a few hours.
This wouldn't be a problem if it wouldn't cause my wife to also not be able to sleep.  :P

It's not a habit or a strategic thing that I won't play against any higher level, but sometimes I'm just not looking for that kind of game.

Dear my opponent,
I'm sorry you are not an experienced player... but the pattern native village / bridge is simple enough to be predicted...
And yes, I was really really a bad guy, letting you come closer to empty 3 piles, but having the experience of "... picking up 22 cards from the Native Village mat."

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201201/18/game-20120118-042956-aa93d5f8.html

yes, 8 bridges played in the same hand (7 would have been enough) and yes, 8 provinces taken for 0.

not a good choiche for you, my dear opponent, to go for gardens too early :)

Dear my opponent,

I am not sorry, but actually very jealous of your sportsmanship.
You typed "!resign" after turn 7, but your Chrome plugin was not running and even if it had, I don't know if that command is actually supported.  ???
I explained how to resign with the regular buttons, but you stuck with it and completed the game anyway.

And it wasn't even that big of a wash, only 55 - 31.

Dear Wandering Winder,

Sorry about our game, as I said before the match started, I'm a big fan of your articles, and the match happened to be Duke/Horse Traders, which happens to be one of the first articles that I'd read and tried to simulate. As the writer of the article you of course see it, and the only reason why I one was your awful shuffle luck. Thanks for accepting my match, and I did enjoy playing you, though I cringed when looking at the log showing your hands.

A fan,
Ferrouswheel

Dear ddubois,

I'm sorry my opening Sea Hag Sea Hagged your Sea Hag, with predictable consequences.

(My Shanty Town/Sea Hag opening proved rather unsuccessful when they collided, but I'm not sure it's necessarily a bad one.)

Dear my opponent,

I am sorry that I build a Torturer engine faster than you (at least you saw that Talisman can be pretty good card sometimes) and then I started playing 5 Torturer every turn. I am also sorry, that I didn't end the game on 3-piling with Great Halls, but I sadisticly bought some Hoards and was preparing for a mega turn later. I was really enjoying that end, sorry...

Dear Mugivi,

I apologised at the time, but I'm still just sorry for this game. We both started down the obvious copper-enabler synergy route, only to realise we were lacking things like good draw. Yet while your deck stalled out, my very similar deck hit Golds, then Provinces, and ended up with what should have been a very close game ending 40-15.

Dear Wandering Winder,

I'm sorry that my schizophrenic Black Market deck took advantage of your very rational BM deck as I randomly assembled a rather effective "BM's worst nightmare" deck consisting of a Militia, a Pirate Ship, and an Oracle, which I played every turn. On the other hand, I consider it a victory of spontaneity over boring-old-BM.

Lots of apology-worthy games for me recently.

Dear NinjaBus, I'm sorry for playing literally pure big money and somehow buying my 4th province on my turn 11. That just should not happen (it's a 0.11% chance on a 4/3 split, according to my simulations). I thought my luck was bad when I didn't have $5 to spend on either turns 3 or 4, when I was planning to buy Trading Post to follow my Silver/Silver opening. Instead it ended up as among the luckiest games I've ever played. Log: http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120209-163506-7ee9bdea.html

Dear zaubererer, I'm sorry for buying Black Market and pulling out (among others!) King's Court, Saboteur, Torturer, Remake, Salvager, and even a Fairgrounds, when the only attack in the original board was Rabble and the only trasher on the original board was Forge. Also, Village was in the kingdom (and I pulled several Village variants from the Black Market). With my deck reduced to an engine that played multiple Rabbles per turn and King's Courted whichever of Saboteur or Torturer I wanted to abuse that turn, I'm sure play in the late game was horrible, and you had no chance to build a similar engine yourself. The worst is that the points were quite close for a long time so you probably felt you needed to stay in. Log: http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201202/10/game-20120210-044223-425de153.html

Sorry for spotting that that combo was on the board and playing it. I can see why you thought it a "cheap ass way to win".

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201202/09/game-20120209-100504-5f601335.html



These logs are always so sad:

Quote
   — domination's turn 29 —
   domination does nothing.
   (domination draws: nothing.)

   — domination's turn 30 —
   domination does nothing.
   (domination draws: nothing.)

   — domination's turn 31 —
   domination does nothing.
   (domination draws: nothing.)

   — domination's turn 32 —
   domination does nothing.
   (domination draws: nothing.)

   — domination's turn 33 —
   domination does nothing.
   (domination draws: nothing.)

   — domination's turn 34 —
   domination resigns from the game (client disconnected or unresponsive).

Is there a bug here?  The game summary at the top of the log indicates that he has 9 cards remaining  in his deck, but then he should be drawing those cards at this time.

I'm sorry I didn't notice Woodcutter as a savior until about turn 30. Still, you kind of deserved it for going for such a ridiculously drawn out TR-Masquerade combo....

To get us back on topic, and to add to the "Dear WW, I'm sorry" notes:

Dear WanderingWinder,

I'm sorry that you had to play from 2nd position (because you killed me) on a board featuring Hunting Party, Governors, and Militia.  Piledriving colonies on you should be a special achievement on councilroom stats pages.  I lost the log, but I'm pretty sure that the "Bully" achievement is pretty close.

To follow it, I'm extra sorry I tournament [redacted] you in the follow-on match, in which I didn't really do anything different from you, but had banes when I needed them, and had provinces when you didn't want me to: http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201202/14/game-20120214-091016-535869b7.html

At least you got me back in the next match with a well executed early buy of harem that had my head scratching.

Dear My Opponent,

I'm sorry for just finishing the game by Ambassadoring you two Provinces so I could run out the pile. I'm also sorry that you never had anything worth trashing when I used my Governors for multi-Province turns on a board with no +Buy.

Dear my opponent:

I'm sorry I gave you so much false hope in the ten (including possession) turns from turn 18. In reality, the best you could have done was to lose to me off turns.

I'm sorry for playing the worst board imaginable for what it was, rather than taking the high road like you.  Seriously, I am.  The game took forever and must have sucked from your end.

mischiefmaker, sorry about forcing you to go for a miracle Swindler because I opened 5/2. And sorry that I managed to steal the win by predicting a Province hit on the last turn after Swindling one of your Duchies.

Dear domination:

I am sorry that you felt it necessary to berate me for my stupid buys and mistakes throughout this game.
http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120217-132458-f3e67ce2.html

I am also sorry that you felt that I won due to "luck" since we had the "exact same cards," which apparently were so "stupid" that you mimicked them.  But really Trading Post over Library in a Fishing Village game?

Mostly I am sorry that you won't be playing against me again. Because it would be fun to dominate you some other time, but I don't like the rudeness.
Looking for this thread ;) ?

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201202/18/game-20120218-091400-a7c50ec9.html

The last turn is slightly disgusting: his economy is pretty much gone, he's trailing by 7 points and is first player, so he needs 8 points to win, he has only one Worker's Village, one Oasis and one Menagerie, yet plays them all in that final turn drawing 3 from Menagerie (of course), plays the Monument and has enough money to buy an Estate AND a Province for the win.

Geronimoo, can you say a little bit about why you went for Oasis in that game? I understand how Oasis is useful in games where you are liable to have lots of dead cards (curses and green) or when you want to rush Duchies and so $5 is plenty, but I don't see what you were trying to do with them in a Province race. To be clear, since writing online strips away a lot of tone, this is an honest question rather than snark; I'm genuinely curious how you hoped to play them out.

Oasis seemed fun here... find Monuments faster, discard colliding Monuments, enable the amazing power of the Menagerie... unfortunately the simulator says I'm an idiot  :P Just more proof I'm not simulating during games I guess  ;D

I apologize for this game. My opponent opens masquerade potion with possession on board. I buy a potion later and possess him after he plays a tactician. D'OH!

Less to apologize for there than you think. Opening Potion when Possession is the ONLY potion card around is really slow - that potion is a dead card for a few shuffles. He drew 2p on his first shuffle (a useless hand) and then on his second shuffle. Whereas you did the right thing and bought a potion only later, when you were ready to use it to actually buy Possessions. So while the first-possession-right-after-tactician was pretty lucky, overall the fact that you got the Possession first and used it first was entirely unsurprising and deserved.

Quote
[...]
   Davio plays a Trading Post.
   ... Davio trashes 2 Provinces, gaining a Silver in hand.
   Davio plays 3 Silvers and a Gold.
   Davio buys a Province.

All Provinces are gone.
Davio wins!

Gotta love those trash for benefit cards. Had trashed a single Province with Salvager or Apprentice before, Remodeled, Expanded or Forged a single Province into another and of course Ambassadored the occasional Province away, but nothing like this. :)

I was playing a chapelled Big Money deck and bought the first three provinces before opponent had any, so I chappelled them away so I had only gold and chapel in my deck reasoning that if I had got the first 3 that quickly, I should win the race to the next three out of 5 easily.

Didnt quite work out like that....

Indeed.  I noticed my deck was just about to the point where I would not be guaranteed 4 Fool's Golds when I played Envoy and I was already up 4-0 on Colonies, so I figured why not.  Ultimately, it is unlikely it would have played out any differently if I had left it.

Dear avenger,

Monument/Chapel is the #25 best opening, which usually would be pretty nice for you.  Unfortunately, I started 5/2 and was able to open Mountebank/Chapel, which is the #1 opening.

Consider that there were also Cities and Bridges on the board and the result was not pretty.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201202/22/game-20120222-144335-6a0f5e98.html

While it was pretty much inevitable given the starting hands, I would have to think that opening Swindler/Chapel or even Swindler/Swindler is the right move here as the 4/3 player.  Seems like the only chance is to hit one of the opening buys of your opponents before they have a chance to play them.

It's nothing really new, so I decided to put it here instead of to game reports.

KC / bridge is well known to be able to get 8 provinces in one turn if you have
2 KC, 3 bridge
in hand.

I wanted to play exactly this to get all provinces at once in a colony game, but look what it resulted in (t15) ;) :

Dear dr. girlfriend,

I'm sorry you opened 2/5 on this board:

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201203/03/game-20120303-183627-5134ced7.html

I got to open Tournament/Steward while you were stuck with Tournament/nothing.  Good on you for avoiding Counting House/nothing.

What really did Dr.GF in is that she never gave you a curse with a swindler. If I had gotten 5/2 on that board I would've gone swindler, not tourny.

No Swindlers in that game?  The curses all came from Followers.

Dear tlloyd,

I am sorry for this game (http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201203/05/game-20120305-212833-1619baa2.html), in which my shuffle luck was surely rage inducing and the quality of my deck relied heavily on a pair of smugglers. And especially for that last turn, where every piece (many of which were smuggled from you) comes together miraculously for me to end an as-of-then tied game on my extra turn with the exact amount of treasure and number of buys needed to do so. This must have been absolutely infuriating.

Dear Varsinor,
       I sincerely apologize for you not realizing that Jester lets you give me a curse instead of a copper when you reveal one of my coppers. I am also sorry that my gamble at buying a Counting House payed off during my last turn where I bought the last Province with 11 coppers in play.

Yes, it was. Apology accepted. ;)

EDIT: By the way, I hate Smugglers. But the true culprit here was Menagerie, which you triggered almost every time you played it despite minimal trashing, no hand-management cards (warehouse, etc.), and a strategy that relied on using a few key cards in multiples (i.e., minimal variety).

Dear egg,
      I am sorry that I was lucky enough to get both Goons and Menagerie from the black market deck. Menagerie probably would've been the closest to a counter to Goons, and considering that I got both, it left you in a lost position the second I got Goons. Even though I did one bad decision breaking my chain from going off, I still was able to end it with a bigger chain.

I hope you can forgive me,
^_^_^_^

Dear Bazinga!,

This is one of those games where a typical player wouldn't even notice how absurdly unlucky you were. Both of your opening buys came on turn 5, which happens with 1% probability.  The powerful cards were $5, and you repeatedly hit $4. Without attacks or "swingy" cards, the game was over by turn 6.

Sounds like that calls for a new card:
REPOSSESSION: If you have two Goons, send them to repossess opponent's computer. Then finish whipping own your sorry butt playing as him.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201203/12/game-20120312-140423-6fa35baf.html

I'm sorry your tribute flipped two tunnels on your first play, allowing me to amass 7(!) golds on my 7th turn. I'm also sorry I drew the optimal 8$ 4 times, drew gold-remodel-copper (1$ over) once, and warehoused a sixth province in an obscene 13 turns. I've never seen warehouse-tunnel go so optimally before.

Dear Snuggles, I am sorry. http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201203/25/game-20120325-092601-5e8e8a72.html

We both went for Young Witch (Bane Cellar), with some help from Fishing Villages. I felt pretty good about myself, cycling my deck as much as I could after every Cellar buy in the first few rounds to improve my odds of protection. But then it just got weird. Snuggles had 5 curses in no-time, and somehow I got my Cellars in place every time. I believe I handed Snuggles the final Curse on turn 13; I got zero. No skill involved. He was a perfect sport and sat it out to the end, announcing he reached his personal goal: going positive :)

I'm sorry my engine came together like clockwork while yours just fell apart in a big mess.  I'm also sorry that I bought all 8 Colonies and 5 Provinces on Turn 17.  That was cruel and evil.

Dear yuuna, you got the dream swindler hit in this game, trashing my potion in a crazy kingdom before I could play it and replacing it with a Treasure Map at a point when I had committed to Witch and Swindler. Instead of doing the sensible thing and taking a replacement potion, I thought "ahh, what the hell" and then...

— yuuna's turn 5 —
   yuuna plays a Swindler.
   ... getting +$2.
   ... perdhapley turns up a Potion and trashes it.
   ... replacing perdhapley's Potion with a Treasure Map.
   yuuna plays a Silver and 2 Coppers.
   yuuna buys a Witch.
   (yuuna draws: an Estate, a Potion, a Transmute, a Curse, and a Copper.)

— perdhapley's turn 6 —
perdhapley plays a Swindler.
... getting +$2.
... yuuna turns up an Estate and trashes it.
... replacing yuuna's Estate with an Estate.
perdhapley plays 3 Coppers.
perdhapley buys a Treasure Map.
(perdhapley reshuffles.)
(perdhapley draws: an Estate, a Witch, 2 Coppers, and a Silver.)
   
— perdhapley's turn 7 —
perdhapley plays a Witch.
... drawing 2 cards.
... yuuna gains a Curse.
perdhapley plays a Silver and 3 Coppers.
perdhapley buys a Witch.
(perdhapley draws: a Swindler, 2 Treasure Maps, an Estate, and a Copper.)
 
— perdhapley's turn 8 —
perdhapley plays a Treasure Map.
... trashing the Treasure Map.
... trashing a Treasure Map from hand.
... gaining 4 Golds on the deck.
(perdhapley draws: 4 Golds and a Copper.)

...This was followed by me trashing your Witch (via Swindler) on turn 11 and your own Swindler on turn 14 (before you even had the chance to hit something else of mine) while avoiding collision with my four terminal actions on all but two turns, leading to a 7/3 curse split. I have never seen a strategy so driven by dumb luck, and I'm truly sorry you had to be on the receiving end.

Dear pk_Brooklyn,

I'm sorry that when my late game Possession finally turned up (at the bottom of my draw deck) it was after you had spent 3 turns buying Silvers and saving your Treasuries up. And that your hand finally totalled $8 on the turn that I Possessed you, leading me to buy that Province and send your Treasuries back to the discard. Thanks for being a good sport; I would have been pissed.

Well it wasn't out of incompetence, just inattention.  Not realizing that when there are no $2's on the board, 5/2 opening with Horn of Plenty/nothing will lead to nothing but heartbreak.

I'm sorry for possibly playing this sub-optimally, and yet still cruising to a victory you just couldn't compete with by opening Mint/FG:

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201204/14/game-20120414-110336-e587ded7.html

That's a ridiculously strong opening, and while I thought that gaining a few Council/Throne Rooms would make it that much more devastating (I should've grabbed a Steward with my first 5, to be honest), I forgot that Fool's Gold best friend is slim thin decks.

You did well to allow me only 6 Fool's Gold, but there still wasn't much contest, and it wasn't your fault.

I'm sorry.

I got King's Court -> Masqueraded a couple weeks ago in a deck where it enabled him to just trash all my cards. Is that the "pin"?

I also won a pretty nasty Highway/King's Court -> Feast game today that was just completely inappropriate (one opponent said "oh hell no, this is just ridiculous"; the other one said "what just happened???"). I'm sorry!

Yep, that's the pin.

(Well, typically the pin is something like King's Court+Militia+Masquerade, so that you're stuck at zero cards in hand even before your whole deck is dead)

It's only a pin if it's actually trashing you down to 0 cards in hand, every turn. Otherwise, it's more like a forced Chapel, which can still be annoying but isn't at all a guaranteed loss.

(In such a situation, pick up a Masquerade and play it, which will usually break their combo. Some boards may offer other ways of breaking the combo.)

Well it wasn't out of incompetence, just inattention.  Not realizing that when there are no $2's on the board, 5/2 opening with Horn of Plenty/nothing will lead to nothing but heartbreak.

Assuming there was other support, the correct move would be to (well, just don't play the HoP, but assuming you already screwed that up) gain a Copper, wouldn't it?

Dear RomaNorgy, sorry for only getting to $7 on the last turn when you needed that Province. Looked like a nice comeback after my lucky Mint hand:

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201204/29/game-20120429-160521-f980a03a.html

I'm happy personally since it ended the most insane losing streak I've ever had, one which I'd previously have bet good money I would never experience:



Yup, that's 9 straight losses in the span of an hour or so. Fun fun.

Thanks for being a good sport!

On that note, thanks to Fabian for helping me to spot a way to victory in the game I played against him (the 8th of his consecutive losses, I believe). 

I was pretty sure I could only draw and commented about it and he expressed doubt, thinking I could beat him by 1 point.  I then looked a little harder and realized I could Mine my Gold into a Harem, then Salvage a Platinum and buy the final Colony.

It takes a very good sport to be in the middle of that kind of bad run and still be generous and friendly.

Yeah it looked to me like you would either lose by 1 or win by 1 (the most straightforward way to win would be to Mine a Harem and buy the last Colony). Getting 10 points or 12 points seemed "easy" on that turn, getting 11 ($13 and 2 buys) seemed not as straightfoward (2 Mine and 1 Salvager in his deck, so getting extra points from Harem was more on my mind at the time). Anyway yeah if I keep my mouth shut for 2 seconds in that game, maybe I get to stop at 7 losses :D

Hi, I'm new here, but I'm not new to dominion or isotropic (level 18 currently). I've ready almost every forum thread in all the sub-forums, but for some reason I haven't ever posted. Here is my first.

Dear MEYER,

I'm sorry for going triple ambassador and cities and giving you all the curses in 19 turns.

Dear Schtroumpf, I am sorry you thought I was a novice who only had a lucky draw. throneroom/feast is indeed a thing that can turn around a game. Though, so is opening throneroom/swindler and hitting my opening 5 card on T5.

Dear Bengoshi, I am truly sorry for what happened in our game.

I really had no idea how to play this board... I was kinda operating in zombie cruise control mode, and so I wasn't making some well-thought-out brilliant move when my 2/5 allowed me to open Native Village and Library.  Honestly, with all seriousness, I don't even know if that really works on this board (thoughts from the peanut gallery?).

I mindlessly played my NV with no regard for my deck composition or what was coming next or anything.  I didn't even buy more of them, just the one.  I lucked into putting coppers and estates on the mat, and having enough on my Library turns to buy golds.

What makes my apology even more poignant is what happened between us in the chat:

14:46 paddyodoors: hi gl hf
14:49 Bengoshi: nicely played
14:49 Bengoshi: but f*** you
14:49 paddyodoors: thanks... just got lucky though
14:49 paddyodoors: however, I don't think you're doing yourself any favors with the insult, as it doesn't hurt me
14:50 paddyodoors: sorry to hear that you feel that way about a game :-/
14:50 Bengoshi has returned to the lobby.

Since it was my turn when I was typing those last lines, it is quite possible that you disconnected before you had a chance to read them, and I only saw your return to the lobby after I finished my turn.  I am sorry that my lucky play was enough to set off your equilibrium to the point of insults.  :(  If you read this, maybe we can try again soon and patch things up?  No joke, serious offer.

Dear Wasteguard, I'm sorry you had to sit through this horror:
http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120422-051215-7a6e1ccb.html

It's a KC-KC-KC-Lab-Scheme-Scheme-Scheme-Saboteur-Saboteur lock. Then I hope my Lab and Schemes draw enough treasure to buy a Province.
Funny thing is that my opponent actually had Followers which I couldn't destroy and it could have broke the lock, but he never managed to draw it as he kept downgrading to crap (10 Estates and 20 Coppers). His reaction when I first topdecked everything was a desperate "really?", I felt genuinely sorry.  :'(

I wonder if he could have salvaged things by taking Crossroads instead of (some of) those Estates, and maybe taking "nothing" instead of some of those Coppers.  The idea being a desperate attempt to get to Followers to break the lock.

My first post here, let me see if I have the theme right:

Dear Nomen,

I'm sorry that even though I'm terrible at Dominion and scored -2 points for our game, that you were somehow worse.  I'm even sorrier that you didn't get to use your trading post.

17:15 Nomen: you took one more turn i had trading post
17:15 Nomen: **** you
17:16 Nomen has returned to the lobby.

Congratulations on your final turn purchases though.

On a board comprised of villages, universities and torturers it's basically a game of roulette with our old friend shuffler.
I am sorry to tell you, Niuz, shuffler owed me one that game.

Still, I must say some decisions are better than others. (Like say, discarding curses instead of accumulating them until the pile runs out)

Crushed in 14 turns into a negative score:
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201205/23/game-20120523-064553-40386b4a.html

This made up for a streak of either out-shuffled close games or outright embarrassments.

Agreed, it was a randomfest. Which called for non-linear thinking. Throne room/Feast was the only way to get something vaguely resembling buying power.

If he had opened correctly and hit 6 early, the game would have been over.

This is a bit of a break from the theme, but

Dear my last several opponents,

I'm sincerely sorry for the fact that I quite rudely told you how little I thought of your strategies after they mopped the floor with me. I was on one heck of a losing streak, but that's no excuse for rudeness. Here's hoping that tomorrow's luck balances out today's.

Dear dr. girlfriend,

I'm sorry for possessing you 23 times in two turns, stealing most of your good cards with your ambassadors. That was probably a bit excessive. I just wanted to make sure you could never, ever do the same thing to me.

Dear yau,

Sorry the shuffler hated you so much on the first few turns of this game:

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120526-190918-8b536806.html

I mean seriously RNG...letting me swindle his Mountebank to a Duchy on turn 5 is bad enough, but to do it again turn 7?  That's just cruel.

Nothing you really could have done about that one yau...that's an incredibly frustrating turn of events, so again sorry about that.

My apologies for getting a King's Court first then Embargoing it with multiple embargo counters. My apologies for using saboteur on pretty much your entire deck. My apologies for having turns that lasted way too long to be sociable.

Dear Sylviel
My apologies for getting a 5/2 opening exactly in the game in which it leads a tremendous advantage !
Vault on turn 1, Grands Markets on turns 3 and 6, and so on...
And for embargoing the vaults before you gained one in a game without trashing, too !

Dear greatexpectations,

I am sorry that, thanks to truly absurd shuffle luck, I managed this sequence of buys:

Turn 1: Silver
Turn 2: Navigator
Turn 3: Stash
Turn 4: Silver
Turn 5: Gold
Turn 6: Gold
Turn 7: nothing
Turn 8: Province
Turn 9: Province
Turn 10: Province
Turn 11: Province
Turn 12: Province

http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120530-202702-4c2c0f63.html

On Turn 7, I drew all three Estates together AND they missed the reshuffle.  On Turn 10, my Navigator discarded a hand of Estate-Estate-Province-Province-Copper.

greatexpectations, thank you for being a good sport about it.

Dear Obi Wan Bonogi,

I'm so sorry that you didn't hit $6 until turn 19, and only hit it once more during the game. That was some really rotten luck. You blamed buying two quarries but even with that, you had some *terrible* luck. Thanks for being a fun opponent and a great sportsman!

Heh.

Frankly I think you were both crazy to go for cursing attacks in an Ambassador game, and for potions in a King's Court game. Torturer was an especially silly choice though, as its not even a compulsory curse.

As a rule of thumb I'd say that the priority in a King's Court game is getting to $7 as soon as possible. A pure game of ambassador, king's court and pawns could easily have been enough, I think.

Dear F'ing New Guy

I'm sorry you vetoed Tournament and then watched me pull it out of the Black Market along with Wharf, Rabble, Bishop, Apprentice, Salvager and Hamlet in a game that already had King's Court available. Needless to say you had little chance despite finding some decent cards in the Black Market yourself (Margrave, Remake, Worker's Village among them).

Sorry to DomDeLouise. I had a game against him where I pulled a tournament from the Black Market  on turn 4, then got a province on turn 6, and connected my one tournament with my one province on turn 8, all with no enablers besides a single oasis and money. I really felt bad about that.

Dear Obi Wan Bonogi,

I'm so sorry that you didn't hit $6 until turn 19, and only hit it once more during the game. That was some really rotten luck. You blamed buying two quarries but even with that, you had some *terrible* luck. Thanks for being a fun opponent and a great sportsman!

Okay, swindler has stricken once again...

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201206/24/game-20120624-123351-c05ccdc8.html
Dear mazer, sorry for this game , where I forced you to possess me with swindling your mining village into a potion turn 6 (these were the only $4s), and when you bought an upgrade turn 6 I immediately changed it into a venture.
And because of other swindlers, most of them were kingcourted, and venture, you couldn't possess me... oh, yes, you did it after your turn 19 and you got a colony, but one turn later you would have got a kc+swindler hand to fix your deck i've so destroyed...

Still thanks for having played this game, it's my first time in about 500 games all platinums were gone.

It reminds me of another game few days ago, in which I had much kc+jesters, but I didn't keep the log... sorry for the player, anyway ; I also remembered I had kc+cellar in hand once as only action cards and I played cellar only, without even discarding kc, and still won with an huge lead.

Dear scion, I'm sorry I won the City split 6/4 even though I was buying Vineyards early, and that I subsequently piled in a Colony game before you could buy any Victory cards. Thank you for pursuing Remodel so aggressively.

Swindler-related :
Dear Final Fantasy, first you've a nice name, then, as we played 4 games together and we both won and lose 2, I won the 3rd one thanks to my swindlers who always used spells like Flare, Meteor, Death...
Turn 3 : quarry (your $4, of course) -> coppersmith
Turn 6 : Worker's village -> coppersmith
Turn 9 : Smugglers -> chancellor (and I bought a 2nd swind)
Turn 16 : I dealt you the only curse in this game like this !
http://councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20120704-015832-86e3d091.html

King's court related :
Dear daaaaavid, I'm sorry first for buying an early KC (turn 5 !!!) and gambling that they would collide with one of my two mountebanks... they did turn 11, and you had no curses !
And I'm sorry for this 9-3 platinum split, as on your turn 22 you margraved me, which allowed my KC, mint and plat to meet each other... these were the 3 cards I kept in hand !
So... thanks for this game !

Dear etlatino, I'm sorry for Embargoing the Golems after you bought a Potion, and then Embargoing the Colonies when the Council Room count was 1 to 0, and then Embargoing the Colonies again when I had a 15-point lead. I hope you don't feel too bad about having 8 Curses in a game with no attacks.

Dear pewpew,

I'm sorry I opened embargo/potion to your embargo/ghost ship and then played an extruciating amount of scrying pools and hamlets when you embargoed alchemist:

(but I don't know why you embargoed alchemist after I bought scrying pool with $4 p)

As for resigning, I believe if you just click: exit, the server should handle it gracefully and not cause problems for your opponent. Just don't close your browser.

Could someone correct me if I'm wrong?

If I'm right, then there is no need to wait for someone's mega turn to resign, and no need to ask them to skip it, if you are truncating the game anyways (which I don't personally mind).

Dear Ravnica,

I'm sorry.  I really should have ended this game sooner, but when you see an opportunity to get the Silk Roads/Gardens/Estates triple piledriver, you really just have to do it.  I'm sure if I'd timed things right I could have gotten four piledrivers including workshops or great halls, but even I am not that cruel.  Not that I even played this well -- somehow I didn't see Workshop there until after the first turn.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201207/13/game-20120713-081104-7feadde1.html

PS: Turn 2 potions with Possession being the only card on the board are usually a bad idea.

Isn't it ironical ? I posted about a win against Final Fantasy, and there is a win against Locke, and just after having a game where I stole a platinum with thief (but it didn't change much).

So, dear Locke, sorry because this time, the thief was me :
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201207/19/game-20120719-051516-e5305d92.html
7 KC, the same number of G.Markets, thanks to this useful haggler I got on first turn ; and there were minions harrassing you... I don't know how many actions I played last turn. Sometimes, a 5/2 opening is much better... especially in game without $4. And I played first.
Oh, and I piledrived provinces too...

(I know Locke is also the name of a philosoph, but don't you know yet how fan of FF I am ??)
And sorry for having posted 4 times on the previous page in this topic.

Dear ozymandias,

You started buying provinces before my deck was ready so I had to do something to slow you down.  I felt like a jerk hitting you 24 times with Saboteur. I felt even worse about knocking off all six of your provinces and then stealing the win from under you.

Dear Oxen, I'm sorry I got my possession up before you did.. and managed to possess you on turns 12 and 15.. both of which featured you having 2 treasure maps in your hand.

I really tried to build the deck that can do nothing but play multiple possessions every turn. Needless to say I failed.

Dear IMUNaware,
Sorry about me saboteuring you many many many times... There was an opportunity for a really cool vineyards deck (Border Village, Upgrade, Alchemist) but the lack of + buys meant that just Monumenting and Saboteuring a million times w/ Throne Room seemed like the best way to do things...

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201207/26/game-20120726-100519-764a5249.html

Look on the bright side, if vineyard wasnt there, then Saboteuring Alchemist would be even meaner...

Why replace Chapel with Herbalist?  At that point, he'd already trashed most of his starting cards, so Chapel was approaching uselessness anyway.  Estate would be even more worthless, except for SR on the board.  But he trashed his starting Estates anyway, so SR was less likely his plan.

Possibly a mistake at that point, but my goal is to junk up his deck with as many terminal actions as possible, and so my thoughts are that allowing him to remove woodcutters/coppers/curses seems less useful than just continuing to clog the deck. And herbalist as the only action seems pretty miserable. I could be wrong tho, estate would also hurt.

Dear my opponents: I know my first five buys were a Silver, two Workers' Villages, a Trade Route, and a Mine; but I wasn't expecting as early as turn 7 to get those all in hand simultaneously, mine the Silver into a Talisman, and buy/gain eight Peddlers on turn 7. I won the game basically on the dumb luck of that early-game shuffle.

Dear Krichevskoy,

I didn't want the game to turn out like this, but you opened Pirate Ship, so I had to build a treasureless deck.  Since there was only one +$ card in the Kingdom … and you gave me that Outpost yourself … well, I'm sorry I swindled you 40 times.

Thanks for seeing the game through, though.

MrCat was unreasonably cool about this single-turn, chipless, comeback from seven colonies and 62 Victory Points down.

Dear Per Fortuna,
I am sorry I opened 5/2 with Vault and Grand Market on the board.  You made a better recovery than I expected!

Dear Rham: Thanks for being a good sport about my Ghost Ship open and about missing Familiar twice.  I am sorry it still took me 31 turns of Ghost Ship Hell to win.

True, but
a)P1 with militia makes hitting 5 harder (happened on turn 4).
b) Dopplarfx should have bought witch earlier, since torturer seems terrible on that board.

You're right.  I'm still relatively new to Dominion.  After my first few Torturers I realized that the power of Torturer is in playing multiples, and there was no action chaining on that board, making Witch the better card.

Dear, WanderingWinder, I am sorry that my Swindler hit your first turn Wharf and that ALL your Swindlers hit Estates, Golds and King's Courts. The only Swindler that actually did anything for you was denying me 1 point by turning one of my Estates into a Lighthouse in the end game.

Sorry to Fnovd (I play as SpaceSquirrel)

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201208/30/game-20120830-193700-e7644f12.html
Black Market, Colony, Develop, Duchess, King's Court, Mine, Pawn, Philosopher's Stone, Platinum, Possession, Potion, Scheme♦, Spy, and Tunnel

KC+Scheme+Possession is bad enough.  To make matters worse, he pulled an Ambassador out of the Black Market deck.  Was pretty clever to topdeck like this when he expected my possession (which did come):

— Fnovd's turn 18 —
[...]
Fnovd puts a Sea Hag, a Mine, a Black Market, a Black Market, and a Tournament back on the deck (first on top).

Unfortunately for him, my Possession did connect with a KC.

The ultimate in "sorry" was the next to last Possessed turn (the possession had yet to be played).  He may have already resigned before this happened:

... ... ... and plays the King's Court a third time.
... ... ... ... and plays an Ambassador.
... ... ... ... ... Fnovd reveals a Possession.
... ... ... ... ... returning it to the supply.
... ... ... ... ... SpaceSquirrel gains a Possession.
... ... ... ... and plays the Ambassador again.
... ... ... ... ... Fnovd reveals a King's Court.
... ... ... ... ... returning it to the supply.
... ... ... ... ... SpaceSquirrel gains a King's Court.
... ... ... ... and plays the Ambassador a third time.
... ... ... ... ... Fnovd reveals a Platinum.
... ... ... ... ... returning it to the supply.
... ... ... ... ... SpaceSquirrel gains a Platinum.

Dear ijskol,

We both saw Quarry/GM/KC and ignored Scrying Pool and Vineyard fairly reasonably... sorry I got my deck streamlined with a few Apprentices, then suddenly ended the game on piles with 10 buys (5 of which were KC), buying an Estate to win 1-0 in what you probably expected to be an engine-based Province rush.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201208/31/game-20120831-232604-bd65bbfe.html

And to avoid double-posting...

Dear Qu,

We both saw KC and picked up a Quarry to get them more easily, and Upgrade to thin decks early. But I have no idea why you ignored Tournament. Sorry I grabbed a bunch of them and started building a massive engine that would eventually start Upgrading KC->Province, while getting the prizes and using a spare buy from Princess for Vineyards... I don't blame you for not seeing it through to the end...

Nobody else is posting to this any more? :(

Dear Riley,

I... um. I truly am sorry. This was just brutal. I got unlucky to open 5/2 on a board where we'd vetoed both the $5s and there were no $2s... I opened Ambassador/nothing, used Scrying Pool to win the Ambassador war, and then gradually built up an engine that could reliably double-Curse (while they lasted), multiple-PS, and Goons you every turn. Although I guess giving you Copper and then trashing mostly Copper with PS cancelled out...

I didn't even end it as quickly as I ought to have been able to.... should have just picked up another Potion or two and run out the SP and villages :/
