Last Game on Isotropic
« on: March 15, 2013, 06:51:15 am »

I probably won't have time to play today, so yesterday I probably played my last game on Isotropic. Feel free to post about your last game on Iso here too!

My last game went out with a bang. It was a board with many of my favorite cards - Fishing Village, Goons, Throne Room, and Grand Market, to name a few. There wasn't enough trashing for a ultra-quick game, but the piles were getting pretty empty when on turn 16, my opponent had a 3 Goons turn to boost into a 25 point lead. Starting with only 3 cards, I managed to draw my whole deck for the first time in the game by Throning Council Rooms, and was able to finish a third pile and buy a bunch of Provinces and Coppers for a 62 point turn. It was a great way to end my playing on Isotropic!

I think this may be it.  Down by one going into my last turn, slip the final curse past her Lighthouses and buy an Estate to win.  Gardens and Witch on the board--two memorable cards from when I first played, IRL.

Thanks for the great times, DougZ.

Well, I'm not sure if I want to play to mess up my current last game which was a lot of fun.

I didn't grab the log, but it was a game between myself (lvl 40) and Cruton (lvl 45) which featured the following cards:
Forge, Adventurer, Border Village, Fairgrounds, Horn of Plenty, Inn, Horse Traders, Island, Trade Route, Woodcutter

We both thought HoP would synergize well with Fairgrounds, but that didn't work so well.
The most amazing thing was when I played Something, Island away a Copper and then HoP.
Because Island was no longer "in play" I had to grab something costing up to $2 instead of $3 I had mistakenly expected. So in all the confusion I grabbed an Estate, trashing my HoP in the process instead of a Copper. Funnily enough a couple of turns later Cruton made the same mistake, but he took a Copper. I was amazed that DougZ even managed to get this right.

The end game was very tense, he had a lot of Trade Routes, all worth $5, but eventually ran out of fuel. I had an extra Gold and an Adventurer which proved actually pretty decent with all the green we were swallowing. Piles were low but neither of us could swoop the last 2 cards (Island and TR) while ahead. In the end I was fortunate enough to keep the lead for an extra turn and get the needed $7+ with 2 buys.

Not my last game ever, but probably one of the first where I put Mandarin to any competent use. And just the other day I had my very first win with a Bureaucrat-based strategy.

Also where are you people? There's a few hours left and the lobby is practically empty!

This was my last game. Would have played more, but at 5:28 with the Gold and Estate on top and without the second FG in my hand I felt that it was time to stop playing.

Might have to call this my actual last game.... Won with 3 of my favorite cards, a Develop thrown in for kicks, and got the "Who Needs Green Cards?"

Not a bad way to go out.

DEpending on when Doug closes it down, this is likely my last one:
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201303/15/game-20130315-083656-00677b2d.html

PapaSnork (level 40 - great player) and I on an IGG board with some Bishop complexity.

Here's the reason to stop playing now:

Estates, Duchies, and Curses are all gone.
ednever and PapaSnork rejoice in their shared victory!

Didn't even finish the last IGG because both of us drew $4 for 2 turns in a row.


May she rest in peace! And live again through Innovation!

If I don't have time to get any more games in tonight, I still think I did an ok job. Gained probably 12ish levels in the last 3 days (well, 10 in the last 2 so far, dunno about today), and finished off with a win against the strongest player (and also 3-2 against the other lvl52).

That said, I'm probably playing more later anyway, so there's still plenty of time to crash and burn.

This is really pedestrian compared to other accomplishments, but still.
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201303/15/game-20130315-103802-51b8fb34.html
A game against a player of a similar level, non-mirror strategies (BM-Envoy against a Caravan stack). Brute force wins.

Thank you, Isotropic, for letting me play lots of Dominion... and it looks like I should learn Innovation :).

I stayed up too late and eventually came back to win a board with Tournament (maybe my favorite card).
Figured it was a good last iso game to have.

It was an honor for me as well.

Couldn't resist to keep playing after the previous one.

I don't think I've ever actually bought the last Curse for a tie so this was a great farewell salute.

Cheers all, time to learn Innovation.

Didn't save the log, so hopefully it will show up on Council Room tomorrow, but most likely I've played my last game now.

It was a fun Tournament-Colony-King's Court-City game. We both opened 2/5, which sucked for that board. He went City, and I went Tournament. I started to buy Cities with my $5s; otherwise Tournaments and King's Courts. Got Followers, then Princess, then Trusty Steed, then Diadem... the first 3 being played with a King's Court at least once each. Never got a second Province; got 5/3 Colony split plus 6 extra Estates to his 6 Curses.

I don't know if this will be my last game, but my last for now was definitely fun. A long, long Ambassador war.

This one might be my last:  http://www.councilroom.com/game?game_id=game-20130314-130648-b41d3257.html

He choice of opening masquerade on a possession board REALLY does not work out well for him.  (Especially since I just salvaged the masquerade he tried to pass me)

Remaking Estates into Villages, Militias into Council Rooms (but keeping some Militias for post-CR use), buying Grand Markets with Silvers and Militias, while my opponent is going for some simple BM on a Colony board.  He has around 5 Platinums and 5 Golds when I start buying money, but at that point I consistently generate ~$20 per turn so that's more than enough to catch up.

So it was still up this afternoon and I got in a few more last games.

Decided this was a good one to end with:
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201303/15/game-20130315-161452-529874e2.html

Winning 93 to -1 on a King's Court Bridge/Torturer mega-turn without any +actions. It was a challenge to set up as the only trashing was Mint and Loan - and without the +actions I had to balance the terminals I needed later (for this mega turn) with their uselessness until I got the multiple King's Court's to line up. But it happened on turn 20:

(ednever draws: a Silver, 2 King's Courts, a Torturer, and a Curse.)
ednever plays a King's Court.
   ... and plays a King's Court.

It's been a pleasure. Too bad it wasn't a Horn of Plenty mega-turn to end it...

(Honorable mention is not one, but TWO games this afternoon I made work with Develop! Nice way to end it. Now if only I had found a way to open Mint / something other than Fool's Gold and make that work...)

A real nail biter between me and the current no. 1 (level 52 - didn't that stuff used to be outlawed? ;) ).
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201303/15/game-20130315-161638-cbf181d3.html

I don't usually win against any of the top 10 players, so this was a great time for me to quit. Yesterday I played like 40 games. Today just this one.
