Dominion General Discussion / How to open this board with 5/2?
« on: February 07, 2013, 09:00:10 am »
The question was inspired by a game I played last night (I won, but I was fairly surprised by this) that featured this particular board where my opponent going first opened 5/2 and I opened 3/4:

$P  Vineyard
$2  Lighthouse
$2P University
$3  Trade Route, Village
$4  Feast, Nomad Camp
$5  Ill-Gotten Gains, Minion, Mountebank

Is there a clearly dominant strategy on this board?

Other Games / Two-Player Worker Placement Games?
« on: December 09, 2012, 10:14:55 pm »
I've lately been on a bit of a worker-placement game kick with some of the folks in my informal gaming group, and my wife sometimes will play some games with me as well.

The most recent game that our informal gaming group pulled out was Olympus, which I really enjoyed, but playing with the missus only will be difficult, as the game is designed for 3-5 players, and I can see how playing with just two players would be problematic.

So what I'm wondering is: are there worker placement games for 2 players that are worthwhile?  I've checked out the list on BGG, but was looking specifically for recommendations from a group of players with a similar interest.

If it helps, I've managed to get her to play and enjoy Kingsburg (the closest to a worker-placement that we own), Ascension, and Dominion.

The two candidates we were considering were Agricola and Stone Age.  Are these good?  Are there other candidates worth considering?

Dominion General Discussion / Turn 3 Thought with Remake
« on: August 02, 2012, 08:52:08 pm »
Take a fairly vanilla board where you've decided to open Remake/Silver.  On Turn 3, you draw Remake, 3 Coppers, and an Estate.  There are no $2 cards on the board worth buying.  Do you Remake the Estate and a Copper, or do you Remake 2 Coppers?  Does it matter what the $3 cards are?

My first thought on these was that you remake the Estate, but more and more, unless there's some $3 card that excites me (more than Silver), I've been thinking that maybe remaking the two coppers (one less total card in hand the deck) is the right play.  Maybe it's too much playing with Ambassador's that got me thinking this way.

Anyway, what do you guys think?  Is this patently obvious, worth considering, or am I completely off my rocker?

Dominion Isotropic / Putting back revealed cards on top of the deck
« on: January 18, 2012, 09:57:58 pm »
Whenever there's a situation that involves rearranging cards to put them back on top of the deck, I know I can drag the cards to rearrange them, but for some reason, I find it really difficult with the interface to get it to actually move the cards so that they actually swap places.  Is there a trick for where to position the logo?  Does this work more easily in text mode?
