Dominion General Discussion / Re: What's the deal with TGG?
« on: March 06, 2024, 04:18:25 am »
Fwiw I do appreciate that TGG seems to have given me credit for having spent some money on Goko roughly 11 years ago.

How so? What did you get and how?

One general method which works in 3 different ways:
Trash all starting Coppers, gain them by (1) trashing Lich, (2) playing Treasurer or (3) Shaman's start of turn ability, revealing Trader to exchange them for Silvers.

Nice! Option number 3 is exactly what I ran into yesterday :)

Puzzles and Challenges / Return all copper to the supply

Now that ambassador sadly left us... Who can figure out a way to return all copper to the supply? I can only think of one method, but maybe there is more?

Had plenty of coins, but I didnt draw that plus buy I would have needed to threepile with duchy. I already had to gain all but 2 during the turn, counting on that buy I didnt get. Then as my last action a black market let me buy border village, and I could buy the second last duchy that way. Never had this lucky a BM draw!

For my money Dominion has all the randomness it needs in the shuffle. Cards like Castles and Tournament are my least favourite, introducing unnecessary randomness by giving players different opportunities by (mostly) pure chance. Loot looks to have the same problem, tho hopefully in a less swingy way as the loots are more similar to each other than, say, Princess and Followers.

I think it would have been better to take the most interesting 2 or 3 loots and make each of them a regular treasure.

There is two loots of each. You can have a house rule for 2 player games, where you have separate piles. I think thats how I would play it, if I ever played with physical copies.

I had one game with sycophant and swap, which was not technically trashing, but a very very useful interaction. I think almost all allies are good with it then.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Really not a fan of voyage turns
« on: March 10, 2022, 07:33:11 am »
I have to say that now that most of my frustration probably came from having voyage in almost every game. Now that the full expansion is released, I find the card more intriguing and way less annoying than before, and that's despite the fact that I am searching for games with additional allies cards.

  • They can be stacked with throne room, and your opponent may easily take more than 5 turns in a row.
  • They are prone to missclicks, so your opponent will have to focus (and play slow) during them.
  • They often barely serve that much purpose, unless some other cards like courier have a synergy, or stacking attacks like torturer, or anything that gives tokens.

And I am just really annoyed right now because I played someone who used them excessively. And while he did play better, outplayed me and won in the end, it took easily 5 minutes between each my turns, and there was just no fun in sitting and watching him fiddle with the 3 cards he has each turn.

I guess he means the difference between having to play your poor house while you still have all treasures on hand, and having the opportunity to play those treasures first ;)

Minion will be so strong. Already on its own, when you can play all treasures and then get new cards. But with cards like bridge.. Unbeatable :)

In some of the decks with minion you can actually hit end actions immediately and go through your whole deck during your buy phase.

How should we handle Bad Omen, if we do only have one copper in our discard? I just saw in the online implementation, that the one copper is put on top of deck. In an offline game, I would argue that, and demand that I just reveal that I can not put two copper on top of my deck.

Game Reports / Re: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry
« on: January 19, 2017, 09:49:12 am »
I cant recall the exact game anymore, I just know that it had "Donate", "Cultist" and "Page" in it.
As soon as my opponent was able to exchange his "Hero" for a "Champion", he bought the "Donate" and got rid of all his spam cards. Just to have me play 5 cultists, to receive all the remaining ruins, in the last turn where he was unprotected.

And I am sorry for him, cause I encouraged him in the chat to rather use donate sooner than later. I had ment "far sooner", but that way, the timing was horrible.

Me too!
I have a OnePlus2 and Windows 10.

Great news, I am looking forward to 2017 then!
Though I am really curious how far you can get within one year, being only two people.

You have adventures already implemented? How much is your fee to let me become an early alpha tester? :P

Help! / Re: Amazing comeback! Not by me, though.

Hm, while I am personally very impressed by the pin (I would not have realized it, if you had not told me), I do not think that it would have worked that well. If I get it right, he would have needed 5 copper every turn, that he can pass to you via masquerade. In combination with you giving him curses via ambassador, it feels like that would slow down the scrying pools too much. Also that means he needs 5 buys for copper every turn, so he needs additional actions for squires each turn.

I guess if you had had some scrying pools, you would have finished well before he had the pin ready.

So, my personal answers:
1) no
2) as soon as you get 4 coins after the double amb ;)
3) don't think this would be necessary at all, if you go for scrying pool.
4) I would rather aim for a quick ending, kindda as you did, than at the pin.

Goko Dominion Online / Re: Latest Release
« on: August 18, 2015, 07:08:57 am »
You're literally complaining that they implemented possibly the most requested feature too soon. It's an absolutely essential feature for any kind of organized tournament play, or for people playing with their friends. I'm starting to be convinced that someone will find a way to complain about literally anything MF does at this point.

playing friends with the old version: Contact them some other way, meet in a room, play
playing friends in the new version: Contact them some other way, type their name in, play

It's just as good as the system before, and obviously it will get better as they implement friends lists etc.

But it is not the priority !!!

How many games are played every day on old version ? How many games are played with two friends who contact in other way ? 1% ~ 2% !!!

Currently in this new version, when a game starts I don't know the name of the player, I don't know his level, I don't know if he played 0 game or 10.000 games before.
I think for 99% of player this is the most important.

If I want to play with a friend I contact him other way saying "hey go to outpost" and we play ! The "challenge" feature is a good thing but not the priority.

Emeric, you are always flaming in such a childish tone, it makes me wonder whether your profile pic actually IS you.... SCNR..
Anyway, to the topic: I am really glad there is a challenge option now, and I really wait for the friendlist feature to perfect it :)

Hm, several times, my deck counter changed when the opponent shuffled his deck. Is that the only deck counter bug, or does it also change on other occasions?

I did not think it would be allowed to prince prizes. I mean, they cost 0* coins. Is 0* really <= 4 coins?
