Weekly Design Contest / Weekly Design Contest #168: Turkey Time
« on: November 10, 2022, 12:03:47 pm »
Often overshadowed by Christmas, Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday of mine.  I recognize that it isn't a global holiday, but for my sake, I'm theming the contest after Thanksgiving.

Design a card or a WELP that involves food or beverages.  Existing or old cards that qualify would be Feast, Horn of Plenty, Baker, Fisherman, Greed, Farmer's Market, Wine Merchant, Forager, Harvest, Vineyard, Herbalist, Fishing Village, etc. 
Others like Swap, Demand, or Blessed Village are not necessarily related to food, but have food in the picture (or in Demand's case, an empty plate) These can still qualify but lose out on some thematic points when I judge. 

There are a lot of cards loosely related to food or drink, but the more related the better.

I'll try to keep tabs on this contest but I will warn you up front, I don't check DSF much over the weekend.  I plan on Closing the contest on Thursday November 17th, then Judging on the 18th or possibly the 19th.

Rules Questions / Inn and Patron
« on: August 19, 2022, 03:26:33 pm »
Just had a game #106554693 where I bought Inn assuming I'd get coffers for each Patron in my discard pile.  I didn't.  The game log says that I looked at actions in my discard but it didn't say "reveal" even though Inn says "reveal".  The issue happened to me twice and my opponent at least once as well.

Is this a rules question I don't understand or is this an issue with

General Discussion / My head a splode
« on: October 16, 2018, 05:22:06 pm »
Dominion Renaissance is coming out very soon, my first baby is due in 5 days, the NBA is starting tonight, and Gen 4 just come out in Pokemon go.

All of my hobbies and interests are exploding with excitement all at once.  If I don't post for a while, it's probably because I'm in the hospital with heart attack from pure excitement.

General Discussion / NBA Playoffs
« on: April 24, 2018, 05:56:17 pm »
Huge Utah Jazz fan here.  I'm also a Trailblazers fan, but they choked hard.

Anybody here care about the NBA? Who's your team?

Other Games / Charterstone
« on: March 27, 2018, 01:09:21 pm »
I just finished the campaign (with 4 players), and I really, really enjoyed it.

That being said, this is the only legacy game I've ever played.  Is there anyone who has played Charterstone and other legacy games? How does this one compare?

Let's Discuss ... / Let's Discuss Nocturne Cards: Cobbler
« on: March 14, 2018, 12:12:11 pm »

By let's discuss, I mostly mean, please somebody tell me how to know when to use this card.

I pretty much buy at least one of these in each kingdom it shows up in because honestly, it's one of the most fun cards in my opinion.  However, when I use it a lot, I usually lose.  (This hasn't stopped me from continuing to buy it yet, but maybe soon I'll get over my infatuation)

When are the best times to get Cobbler?
How many do you want?
Is it weak, or do I just use it wrong?
Isn't it just so much fun to use?

It still counted the game, but then just started again.  And now we are both stuck not able to resign or end the game.  Does this happen often?

Variants and Fan Cards / Dragon Traveller Line
« on: December 27, 2017, 04:00:11 pm »
Here's my Dragon Traveller Line.  Co0kieL0rd Already said that he thinks they are a bit too weak and he thinks there should be a condition to upgrade wild dragon to trained dragon.  I'm looking for more suggestions.  I've never tried to make a traveler line before so I'll listen to suggestions.

Burn tokens are kinda like Gazbag's ice tokens.  They sit on a card that has been removed from your deck until you pay a coin per token to remove them in your buy phase.  Once a card has no more burn tokens it goes to your discard.

I think this one is fine, although I am a little worried about the sauna-esque swinginess in trying to match it with a silver.  I will probably change it to say "any treasure other than copper" but that probably will only rarely make a difference since this would often be bought in the opening.  I guess that way you could open double dragon egg if you wanted to.

I think this one is okay too.  Pretty similar to Moneylender, just non-terminal and less money comes out of it.  It also helps you clean up a silver if you bought too many in order to upgrade your dragon egg.

This effect does happen to everyone, including yourself.  So basically the card is +$3 and +1 Buy.  Then a little thematic Chaos happens.  Yeah, it's a little weak for a $5, but most of the travellers in Dominion are weak for their price until you reach the end of the line.  You almost always get them because they upgrade, not because they are awesome on their own. So is it okay? I do agree with CoOkieLOrd that it should probably have a condition to upgrade, if for nothing else, for thematic reasons.  Although maybe then it would also need a little buff. Any good ideas? I've thought about making the self-attacking part optional, and if you choose to get attacked, then you can upgrade it. I guess getting burned a bit is the price you pay for training a dragon.

Compared to Champion and Teacher this may be weak, but you only need to go through 3 travellers to get to it rather than the normal 4. Does this one need to change?

Dominion General Discussion / Tom Vasel Nocturne Review
« on: December 14, 2017, 02:26:57 pm »
I just watched Vasel's review of Nocturne.  Although I do agree with some of what he says, mostly I just got a kick out of it.  It was funny, because it was pretty obvious that he doesn't really know what he's talking about when it comes to dominion. 

I watch his reviews for lots of games I am interested in, but this makes me wonder how well he explains them.  He described ghost saying "you can look through your deck and set aside an action card".  He neglected to mention the part that is actually good about ghost.  He also just said a lot of things wrong.

He was super negative about this expansion.  He does have a point about the dominion font on the sex hex and boon cards, and the weird font on the back of the box.  Those both seem pretty meh.  But I think he was way too negative.  He claims it will only be fun for the most hard core dominion players. 


Dominion General Discussion / What is your biggest draw using Scrying Pool?
« on: December 06, 2017, 03:02:06 pm »
I just got 16.  It was a crazy game involving university, scrying pool, and black market, chapel, sentry, and urchin.  So there was tons of trashing and tons of action card gaining.  I'm sure there are plenty of times people have gotten more than 16 though, so let's hear it.

Dominion: Nocturne Previews / New Stuff Playing with the Nocturne Cards
« on: October 23, 2017, 03:57:34 pm »
Before that game started, it showed me all my started cards until I clicked "start game"  That was pretty cool I thought.  I'll never forget that it is a shelters game again!

The second thing I noticed was that when my opponent played bridge troll, there was a little red -1 thing in the middle of the screen, next to the thing that shows how many actions coins and buys I have left. 

Third, I am completely awful with the Nocturne cards so far  :P  They are super fun though.

Are there any other new things anyone has noticed?

Edit: Hm.  I should really read all the other threads before I get over excited and post something.  These were all talked about already.  My bad

Dominion General Discussion / Card Sleeves
« on: October 03, 2017, 01:02:33 pm »
I decided to sleeve all my cards, but once I did they didn't quite fit into the box insert without bending.  Does this happen to anyone else?

What is the best brand & size of sleeves for dominion cards?

Variants and Fan Cards / Chappy's Cards
« on: September 15, 2017, 06:04:42 pm »
After some help with getting me over my technical difficulties, here are some of my card ideas. Ready, go! Tell me what is broken about them! (or if they are just super cool and balanced by some miracle, you can go ahead and tell me that too)

All right, I know this won't be much good unless you get cursed, but I thought it was kinda cool.

This one is priced the way it is because I wanted it to be available early.  I still considered making it $3 and 3 debt.

I've made several cards with this choose at the end of your action phase effect, although I'm not posting many of them yet. Lots of them still need serious work.  It could be pretty valuable to get the $2 if you are just short of what you need.  But if you aren't short, then you can still benefit with +2 cards!

I don't want this to end up like harvest...It could be really good with the right engine, but does it need a +buy? Something else?

I thought this was fun.

I think these are my favorites.  I haven't played with this at all, so I actually have no idea if it is really good or not good at all, but I think the idea is cool.

This could be really good I think.  Although nobody likes buying treasure any more so it might end up being in the sad treasure focused club with adventurer.  But if it gets paired with gold, platinum, or anything big like bank or charm, it could get crazy.  Maybe too crazy.  Plus it's nuts with capital.  (my wife made fun of me for making the picture fruit made sense in my head)

Okay, I need to put it on the cards, but when either of these are in the kingdom you add two random piles to the kingdom. (4 if both are in the kingdom) Kind of a pseudo black market. They have some wording that needs to be worked out, and occult is meant to make everything cost 1 less, not negative 1.  Had some help naming and getting the picture on that one from ThetaSigma12.

I have two attempts at this.  Would the sort of effect just blow up the whole game? I think it is cool, but it seems like it would have a lot of crazy rule issues. Anyways, you can gain a card, then cover it up with a lame and/or expensive card so others have a harder time gaining it. 

I like this one.  It would get crazy in 3+ player games, but hey, so do a lot of cards.

I like this one too.

Here's another one of the delayed choice cards. 

Variants and Fan Cards / Computer Newb Here....
« on: September 15, 2017, 04:14:13 pm »
Heeeeelp!! I want to post some of the cards I've made but I have no idea how to do it. 

Talk to me like I'm a little child.  I won't get offended.  I have them saved as pictures on my computer, and I need them to magically pop up on this forum.

Variants and Fan Cards / Quick Question
« on: August 16, 2017, 05:14:06 pm »
How much would you all spend on a card that said +1 Action +2 VP? (of course it would vary on each board, just an average cost would be good)

What about +1 Action +$2 and +1 VP?

Sometimes a kingdom pops up and my heart leaps for joy because I see a certain card.  Sometimes a kingdom pops up and I want to die.  What cards make everyone else feel like this?

I love Merchant guild  <3 It may not always be the best card, but I think it is so much fun. I've foolishly bought it so many times. Castles probably pull in at a close second for me.   

I hate seeing storyteller.  I know lots of people love it, but I feel like it just guarantees a really long and painful game full of 5 minute turns.  I know that it is often an awesome card, but I don't have fun with it. 

Dominion Online at Shuffle iT / Possession
« on: July 26, 2017, 05:57:08 pm »
Does Possession mess up the game log for everybody? Whenever I play possession the log starts over from the point I played it, and I can no longer scroll back beyond there.

What can I do to save my friends from leaving? Or do I just need new gaming friends? :P Any ideas on how I can make it seem interesting to them again?

Dominion Articles / Miser/Fountain Miser/Gardens
« on: June 20, 2017, 05:14:09 pm »
I read the Miser Thread, and I didn't see anyone mention this, but is has anyone tried/had success with Miser on a gardens board or with Fountain in the kingdom? Miser is usually pretty slow and not a great option, but I have always wondered if it would be any good with gardens or fountain, since you get to keep your coppers. If so, what would be the best way to make it work?

I don't own Adventures so I haven't tried it out on my own yet.

Introductions / Hey Guys!
« on: June 20, 2017, 01:10:16 pm »
Hello, I've been reading stuff from this forum for a while now, especially when I have rules questions and such, but only recently did I actually get an account.  I love it.

I've played a lot of dominion in real life, and I own most of the expansions, but honestly, most people that I play with just aren't as into it as I am.  After one game I'm just itching to play another, where most people just want to put it away.  That's why I started playing online.  (Side note.  If there are any of you who happen to be from Utah looking for someone to play dominion with, I'm your guy.)

This Forum is awesome.  Thank you!

Rules Questions / Band of Misfits +Card Token
« on: June 06, 2017, 01:05:02 pm »
Hey guys, This may have been asked before, but I couldn't find an answer for this specific question.  Sorry if I'm repeating. 
Anyway, if I have my +card token on BoM do I get to draw that card before I choose what BoM will be played as? It could definitely affect my decision if that is the case.
