Where can I read more things that you've written? The stuff you write for Dominion is hilarious, I'd love to read other stuff, books, novellas etc.

Is there a place where I can read your opinions on electoral reforms? I watched the youtube video and I'd love to hear/read more!

Variants and Fan Cards / Re: First Fan Card Post

If you want more immediate feedback, I suggest you post cards on Discord:

I think Corgi has a bit of a tracking issue. You can usually tell how much money you have by looking at the cards you have in play. Corgi messes that up because your Copper gets trashed, but you still got +1$ from playing it. This can be easily fixed by making it mandatory: When you play this, trash a Treasure card you have in play. If you did, +1 Coffers. This would make Corgi anti-synergize with Bank, but I think it's a good fix.

Destiny's Cottage seems dangerous even if it discards instead of revealing. Donald X. tells us that it's not good to let players accummulate a lot of Coffers:
Quote from: Donald X.
Coffers tokens were also problematic; when you have a giant pile of those tokens, it's pretty demoralizing for the other players, and sometimes it's even a good strategy. So only one card gives +2 Coffers each time it's played, and some only sometimes produce +Coffers, and some do it when-gained. Villagers tokens had no issues. Go ahead and get a bunch if you want.

Do you think King's Court would have been better off costing Debt? (and moved to a an expansion with Debt, of course)

Thanks in advance!

I didn't forget about Goons, I didn't just scribble some text on it and figure it would be fine with no testing and then move on.

Perish the thought! I fully trust any changes you make, as always.

Long time reader, first time asker.

1) What's the reason for the new errata replacing "While this is in play" with "This turn"?

2) Will Goons get "This turn" too?

Thanks a bunch!

You can sign up for the beta on the website, I was accepted within about a day. There is multiplayer, yes.

While ideally there would be one perfect implementation that makes everyone happy, in practice I couldn't disagree more with this. The healthiest state of computer Dominion so far was in the pre-Goko era, when there were a variety of unofficial implementations that had different advantages for different types of players. It's just too hard to have one implementation satisfy, for example, both the people who want to play casually against AI on their phone and the people who want to play at top competitive levels on their desktop. (I'm still salty that it hasn't ever been possible to play with a deck tracker in the post-isotropic era. I understand that not everyone likes deck trackers, and if there's a variety of ways to play, those people can be happy too!)

I don't see a reason why a unified system couldn't work on all platforms with both AI and multiplayer, plenty of games offer that nowadays. You're certainly right about the variety, but once you get into things like adding custom cards, no official version will ever beat stuff like Tabletop Simulator and Cockatrice.

So the ShuffleIT implementation and this new one will be completely separate, right? It's kind of sad, now the playerbase will be split, along with the game history, rankings and so on. I wish had expanded into mobile and PC, but oh well. It would be nice to have a single, official implementation. I get the feeling this means the older implementation will be extinguished in a few years :(
