What degree are you getting?

I will probably major in Economics.
Thanks everyone for the advice! I've managed to consolidate all my cards into half a dozen big boxes. Its quite heavy, but very space efficient!

How many do you have?

Sorry, should have specified, I have everything but Intrigue and Rennaissance.

So I'll be going to college next year, and I wanted to bring some of my Dominion sets, but not all of them. Assuming I bring a couple or say, 50 kingdom cards, what would you all suggest taking along? Also, has anyone had any luck making a Dominion storage case out of cardboard?

Is there any kingdom card that would help any strategy? Or would that be overpowered?

There is no kingdom card that helps every possible strategy, but there are kingdom cards that help certain strategies so much that their presence in the kingdom almost automatically dictates that you have to play that strategy if possible (e.g. Bridge Troll, Goons, King's Court) and kingdom cards that are extremely useful in a wide variety of strategies (e.g. Masquerade).

Wait Bridge Troll is great now? Do you mean just Bridge?

Something art-related would be apropos (paintbrush, artist's palette, music note).

How about a fleur-de-lis? I'm not a history buff, so that may not even make sense with the time period.

A fleur-de-lis would be cool.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: Most hated attacks?
« on: August 17, 2018, 10:15:59 am »
I always disliked attacks that trashed your cards. If you are struggling to hit $5, the opponent gets a couple of Knights and trashes your first $5, your basically screwed.

Since there will apparently be Action Tokens, will we get a shorthand for them similar to Coffers? What would the shorthand be? Aquila came up with "+Power" for his fan expansion with Action Tokens. That seems like a good name, but I'm not sure it matches this set's theme.

Somebody (half-jokingly?) called them "Actors". I like that. The mat could be something like a stage. It fits the theme of renaissance, and the arts haven't exactly been overrepresented in Dominion, yet.

I like this. Bet they'll be an attack like "Tragedy" or "Antagonist".

Building Dome top

This looks great! Coin tokens are fun, and I feel like Guilds was thematically one of the coolest Dominion expansions.

This has been the most miserable year for soccer in a long time.

I think the worst year for football (of recent years, that is) was 2010, when Qatar won the bid for WC host.

This year, no event I remember strikes me as particularly bad for football. Video ref'ing was introduced last year, and while I am critical of it I don't think it's the end of the world. My favourite club again failed to promote, but that's expected and another story.

A mediocre team (Real Madrid) again wins the Champions League because a bunch of "good" teams like Bayern Munich fail spectacularly to get their act together. In the WC, all the good teams are playing like garbage, the only top teams that are playing well are Spain and Ronaldo. Poland (my favorite) is probably getting eliminated.

Brazil over Germany in the final.

If the tournament was based on talent alone, France would win.

Has anyone played this game? I'm thinking about starting an Imperial or Scum fleet, and I'm looking for advice.

I hope this is the first thread someone finds on f.ds.

Now if only RGG would send free second edition Adventures to those who bought the first edition and are stuck with extra bendy cards.  :(

(This wasn't intended to be a criticism of RGG; I wouldn't actually expect them to do that. But it is annoying to play with those cards IRL).

This looks amazing! Nice to see a completed fan expansion.

Also where is the contest that McGarnacle was talking about

That's fan card creation, not kingdom design. This is a kingdom design contest.

But that's for 2014. Where's the one for 2018

There hasn't been one.

People don't really care about kingdom design here, at least not as much as they used to.

Chase, may I suggest the f.ds extension for chrome and firefox? I makes the kingdoms a lot easier to read.

Also, I like your kingdoms, I wish more people played non-randomized sets of 10. We have some threads with thematic kingdoms, kingdom design contests, etc.

I think people are correct that the key is to realize that the trashing effect is not supposed to always be a drawback. Still, I think this card is weak, especially when it is so similar to Margrave.
