This was very tempting in our game on my turn...

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.
I hereby declare myself the best dominion player in the world. Obviously.

I've started a four-player game, if any of you want to join it. Game name is Dominion Strategy, password is Dominion.

Centuries later, archaeologists discover the remains of your ancient civilization.

Evidence of thriving towns, Pottery, roads, and a centralized government amaze the startled scientists.

Finally, they come upon a stone tablet, which contains but one mysterious phrase!

'ISOTROPIC WILL RETURN!'

I'm in three games already on there.

But if you find yourself lacking a player, hit me up. I'm sure I can add a fourth.

Well, and one game will be over soon. I think there are 12 cards left in Age III.

I find the lack of banter to be a major drawback of the site. It's not that the Chat function is difficult to use, but it feels like an extra step. Especially compared to the PBF format.

I don't really like how sending a message in chat takes you immediately back to board view. I understand it is most efficient, but it feels odd that you don't get to look at your message after submitting it.

PS. Joined DominionStrategy game (id 150587). Is your gameplay really of King *** size? Because mine isn't.

Alright, I've got a question:

I'm in the middle of my turn. I started with 4 CA, and discovered Alchemy for my first action. I've now got 3 CA remaining. I've got 3 Workers in my Pool, and 7 Bronze in my supply.

The system won't let me build Alchemy. Why?

Complete Stats:

Agriculture (0 Workers): 2 Chips
Irrigation (2 Workers): 4 Chips

Bronze (3 Workers): 7 Chips

Philosophy (2 Workers)

Religion (1 Worker)

5 Blue Chips in supply
17 Yellow Chips in supply

Own Fertile Territory I

1 Civil Card in Hand (Masonry)
2 Military Cards in Hand (Enslave, Heavy Cavalry)

Aristotle is elected leader.

http://www.boardgaming-online.com/index.php?cnt=202&msg=400&pl=150716&nat=4

So, what am I missing here?

**Edit: For the record, I CAN individually upgrade each of my current Philosophic Workers (at 3R each) to Lab Workers, leaving me with 1 Resource. But I don't WANT to do that, because I want to burn resources here, and I want the extra CA to increase population.

Are you still in Despotism? You can only have two urban buildings of the same type. You already have two labs, so you can't build a third one.

If you're no longer a despot, then I am at a loss.

Incidentally, I find myself less worried about corruption nowadays. I worked my tail off to prevent corruption, but I think that sometimes it's just something worth doing.

In your case, you want to burn 6 out of 7 Resources to build a new Alchemy, leaving you 1 Resource plus Production. If you cannot do that, then you have to instead upgrade a Philosophy to Alchemy for 3 out of 7 Resources. That leaves you with 4 Resources plus Production. Even if you hit corruption, you'll still be one ahead.

I'm becoming more comfortable with that idea. I always fought to have 0 corruption before.

Yeah, 1 set of Corruption (2 lost resources) isn't always the end of the world. Hitting double corruption hurts though, especially when you're still producing Bronze.

That seems to be a common mistake, right up there with the rule that discovering a military tech is still a civil action.

That one doesn't bug me. MA's are any Military Card (PA's or Formations), and building Units.

Actually, I'm probably more likely to forget that building units is a MA, not a CA, since it's spending my resources.

Yeah, I've made that mistake a few times too. At least that is usually a mistake I don't mind because then I realize that I have more civil actions than I planned for. It's like Christmas!

Whelp, looks like our games have been broken.

Quote from: BGO
There has been a major incident due to a program change that was done yesterday. All games that have been played during the last 12 hours have been irreversably damaged. I am currently working on restoring the database from yesterday morning. I will keep you updated when the site is ready.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Edit: On the plus side, as best I can see, our games *might* be unaffected by this. Apparently the issue was with cards added in the expansions and/or changed in the expansions (including Bach, Hammurabi, Kremlin, Classic Army, Napoleonic Army and probably others), they've all disappeared. So... we might have escaped. Or the game might be reset to a previous state.

That's a shame. I've joined both games, I'm also going to launch a global game with unrevealed removed leaders/wonders (this has new wonders and leaders and I think a few tactics are changed)

Pity. I felt actually kind of competent in one of those.

I really need to work on becoming a military juggernaut somehow. It felt kind of nice to initiate a Raid with no repercussions. Well, not immediately anyway. I'm sure there would have been retribution in my future at some point.

Being strongest in military has it's own advantages. Events tend to favor you, and you're basically immune to aggressions. If you're strong enough to launch aggressions of your own, even better, but the military action cost is surprisingly high.

All I know is that Confucius + Parthenon = Age 1 Drama on crack. Seriously, each Age A Religion becomes worth 2 Culture, 1 Science, and 1 Happy Face. And at a price per that's 2 Resources cheaper than Drama? And no science discovery cost? Delicious! (Wonder must built though)

Heh, well, the issue here is once Confucious dies, they lose that 1 science, and become just Dramas, and Drama isn't great (Opera and Movies can be, Drama... less so). And of course, this is all contingent on also getting both of them, AND building the Parthenon.
