Goko Dominion Online / Can anyone get it to work?

The subject says it all... I keep getting server errors when I try to regester or play a game. Can't regester with fb either.

Dominion General Discussion / When to not play Vault
« on: January 15, 2012, 11:44:34 am »
A 5/2 opener on a board with vault is verry powerful. But is it always the right move? There are a few 5 costs that could be better, like Montebank. So, my question is this:

The game just started and you go first. You see q Vault, but decide instead to buy...?

Basically, when is opening Vault not the best move. I'm especially interested to see if any 4 costs make the list... Do you buy Vault vs Gardens Workshop?

Help! / Was I a victim of BM?

So, I go into this game thinking I'll pick up a few TRs and maybe a Spy or two, then fill up on Governors, Scrying Pools, and GMs with maybe some Apprentaces... then suddenly my opp is buying up the Provences and I started to rush to try to catch up. Where did I go wrong? Was I just playing too slow a deck? It seemed like I had horrible shuffle luck... it took me forever to hit 5$

What is the corresponding list that follows almost exactly the same rule except for one word?

Montebank, Vault

This actually happened IRL, but my opp resigned..

What is the best possible deck setup?

Hint: Infinite VPs is awesome.

Dominion General Discussion / Greatest Isotropic Moments of 2012

This topic was split from the Greatest Isotropic Moments of 2011 thread

Sadly this was on the 9th... But I can't resist, so here's a challenge to beat for next year ^_^

#1 Biderman: 317 points (227 ▼, 7 Colonies, 5 Nobles, a Province, and 4 Estates); 24 turns
          opening: Wharf / nothing
#2 mayasquer: 49 points (3 Provinces, a Colony, 2 Duchies, 3 Nobles, 5 Estates, and 4 ▼); 25 turns

If not the most points, I'm willing to bet I got the most points in one turn.... 30 buys, 6 Goons in play, I buy 4 Colonies, 1 Provence, 1 Estate, and 18 Coppers for a total of 180+40+6+1=227 points in one turn. The sad thing about this turn is that I had $54 and there were 5 Colonies left :/

Game Reports / The most painful game you have played
« on: October 22, 2011, 05:56:22 pm »
This was just hell to play. 41 turns and almost 3 hours. Props to anyone who bothers to read even half the log. I still don't understand why the game developed as it did, but it felt like Militia kept keeping me off of 8... I went through after and found atleast 4 times.

What was the most painful game you have played?

Dominion General Discussion / How do You Play Golem?
« on: October 22, 2011, 03:24:53 pm »
What do you guys think about the card Golem? It screams interesting to me, but I am unsure how to play it well. I have had a variety of ideas, but I would like to get others' input. Right now, the strategies that seem good to me are:

Good Golem Strategies
  • Golem + Counting House + 8 Coppers
  • Golem + Apprentice
  • Golem + 2 Wharf


Original post:

Golem is a very interesting card, but it seems not at all clear to me how to play it well. Do you buy one Golem or many? Fill your deck with actions or just have a few? Recently, I played a game where I used Golem in Big Money. My deck consisted of cash, 2 Wharfs, and 4 Golems. I found that the increased odds of hitting Wharf every other turn was very helpful, as was the milling of my deck. Obviously Golem is insane with Apprentice, but when else does it shine? What if I replaced my two Warfs with a Tactician and a Monument?

Here is another game I played with Golem.

The one game where I was sure I played Golem well was easy.... my deck was 8 coppers, 1 potion, 4 Golem, and 1 Counting House plus victory cards, and I just bought a Provence every turn from turn 8 onwards.

Is Golem good? How do you play it?
