Rules Questions / Calling Multiples Guides on the Same Turn
« on: August 17, 2015, 11:47:06 pm »
If I have multiple guides on the tavern mat at the start of my turn, can I call a guide, get a new hand, then decide to call another guide from my tavern mat?

I did that multiple times in a game tonight because I had many guides (+$1 token on guide pile) on the tavern mat. Halfway through the game my friend re-read guide and thought that I was playing it in correctly, arguing that once I called the first guide, it was no longer the start of my turn so I couldn't call a second (or third, etc.) guide. He said that since I can decide the order in which things happen at the start of the turn, I could decide to call more than 1 guide, but I would have to decide the amount before I called the first one and saw my new hand. I think he is correct. Is he?

It comes down to when does the "start of my turn" end? (assuming we understand everything else correctly). Does the "start of my turn" end after I call the first guide? By similar ruling, if I had a guide and a rat catcher on the tavern mat, I would have to decide to play rat catcher before I saw my new hand from calling guide, because I had to choose the order (1. guide 2. rat catcher) before I played the guide.

Dominion General Discussion / Combo: Watchtower and Feodum
« on: November 02, 2014, 03:04:54 pm »
Just discovered this combo in a game and I couldn't find it anywhere else in the forum, so I decided to post it here. The idea is simple, with a watchtower in hand buy a feodum, reveal watchtower, trash feodum and gain 3 silvers, reveal watchtower, put 3 silvers on top of deck. I don't feel like putting in the effort into making an article (nor do I know if this combo is strong enough to warrant a full-blown article) but I thought it seemed strong enough to at least mention here. After each turn where you buy feodum with a watchtower in hand, you can almost always buy a province, and you are adding 3 silvers to your deck so you are not going to choke with green, so you can green very early. Also, later in the game even if you don't have watchtower in hand, feodums should be worth at least a duchy for you for only $4. Not sure how fast this is, in the sample game I'm posting I won in 18 turns which isn't that fast, but I definitely didn't play it optimally (I think I should've bought more watchtowers early on). It was able to beat an engine, but the engine lacked trashing and a buy, so this simple big money strategy will probably lose to boards where better engines is possible. Anyways, was curious to hear what the community thought about this combo.

Rules Questions / Watchtower/Masquerade question
« on: October 21, 2013, 10:08:40 am »
If my opponent plays masquerade and I have a watchtower in hand, can I reveal it to trash the card he passed me? I looked in the rule book to see if it described the pass from masquerade as "gaining" but I couldn't find any such wording. My friend and I decided we were not allowed to reveal watchtower (IRL obviously), were we correct?

Innovation General Discussion / Where can I buy Innovation in person?
« on: March 04, 2013, 03:59:35 pm »
Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone knew of any stores where I could buy Innovation in person? (I prefer buying games in person as opposed to online). I'd love to play the game in person with my friends and have a general feel for the base cards before getting creamed on isotropic. I know you can buy the game online, but I'd prefer to buy it in person if possible. Thanks in advance!

Game Reports / coppersmith could i have played it better?
« on: February 06, 2013, 01:36:12 am »
ive never played a deck completely around coppersmith before, ive only ever added it to an engine that didnt have trashing just to get some extra money after i had drawn most of my deck. idk if it was the best strategy on this board, but i love trying out new strategies at the cost of losing because i feel like that's the main way i get better. i managed to squeak out a win, but i was more concerned with what i would learn in this game than actually winning.

anyways, i had farming villages+hamlets for actions and buys. envoy for drawing. i figured envoy would be perfect for this, since every card (other than victory cards) was needed, so the discard wouldnt hurt much. then i picked up some coppersmiths and a few coppers as my only source of money.

how could i have played this better? two villages to open was probably weak, im guessing i shouldve went envoy/hamlet to open. also i think some of my late game hamlets shouldve been estates, even though there were 4 provinces left. anyways, ill shut up now lol. id love some constructive criticism :)

Hey everyone, I was wondering if there is a way to get the Dominion Dark Ages cards on goko on the computer, or can you only use the card thingy that came with Dark Ages on a tablet/smart phone? thanks
