Dear Opponent,

I'm sorry I had to zip away from the computer and didn't get a chance to resign.  I know it sucks to wait for someone to return.  But at least you got the win!

Edit: And oh, I kinda like humble/crumble as a opening, at least if I plan to go for Castle heavily. Maybe I have just been, ahem, lucky when that have seem to work out for me..

The first 2 Castles seem like traps to me. At the very least, whenever my opponent goes for them and I buy better stuff it opens up the possibility for me to grab the far superior Small, Haunted and Opulent Castles.

This game was played using the physical copy, so no link.
Kingdom: Haven, Highway, Lost City, Saboteur, Goons, Hireling, KC, probably a couple 3's and 4's. Some trasher, maybe Dominate?
This is probably the most sorry I have felt because of a game of Dominion:

a) getting the first 5 coin turn, allowing me to buy first Saboteur
b) proceeding to play it on my opponent incessantly, due to a KC later that same shuffle
c) using all of this in an engine with really long turns
d) throwing goons into the mix, so that I
e) drove many piles down to one card left, knowing they could do nothing about it without any remotely decent cards

The turn when I finally decided to play nine highways (only nine because I didn't want a third pile to run out) and run out the colonies only ended up making around a quarter of my score. Final score was 317 (mostly VP chips from goons) to 7 (3 starting estates, 1 duchy trashed from opponent's last turn province (their deck was only mostly useless because of haven), and 1 VP chip from when they briefly had a goons). All because of a couple lucky shuffles with Saboteur and KC.

My opponent had chosen to include Saboteur, so I was afraid of my deck getting destroyed. I am pretty evenly matched with this particular opponent; I got lucky here. I definitely could have ended the game earlier and put them out of their misery, but once I started, I got carried away trying to see just how many points I could get. Needless to say, we are never playing with Saboteur again, or probably goons (although the goons is a shame).
