General Discussion / Re: Dominion Cards that put songs in your mind

Every time I gain or play an Abandoned Mine, I'm like "so we Abandoned Mine, got our pickaxe swinging from side to side, side side to side..."

Dominion Online at Shuffle iT / Randomly getting kicked out of games
« on: February 11, 2020, 10:19:08 am »
Every so often when I am playing, I will randomly get logged out and not be able to join back in. Today I was playing with juan097 and I suddenly got to the endgame screen in a game with 2 other people I was watching before, and I'm not able to continue the game I was in. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Not sure if it was correct, but...

If you wouldn't mind answering this, would you say Dominion: Menagerie is more like Renaissance in the sense that it's simpler and better for new players, or more like Empires and Nocturne in the sense that it adds a lot of new stuff and is more suited for experts?

At my old school a bunch of Dominion noobs wanted to make a set called "Dominion: Zoo." Little did they know that 4 years later...

If you replace a Curse into an Estate it's like saying "no u"

Masterpiece, Feodum, Delve and Tower

Some people would say that Ironworks or Rats also help, but I think that this combo is good enough on its own.

Overheard conversation at my high school:

"Hey, do you play Dominion?"
"Yeah! What strategy do you play?"
"Me too!"

Dominion General Discussion / Lessons learned
« on: November 14, 2019, 08:48:46 pm »
I made a Google doc for lessons I've learned from recent Dominion games. Every time I lose and realize why, I write it in there. So far I've lost 11 games learning these tips...

What lessons have you learned from losses? I will update this, hopefully not so regularly!

Dominion General Discussion / Teaching Dominion
« on: October 16, 2019, 08:35:38 pm »
Hi everyone!

I am signed up to teach a 1.5 hour class on how to play Dominion for this event at my school. A few questions:

* Are there any big things to keep in mind? Common misconceptions about the game that people have at first?

* What kingdoms should I set up? Do you think it would be possible to construct 2 mutually exclusive kingdoms of base set cards for 2 groups to play at once? Or should I order 2 copies of the base set?

* How much strategy should they be informed about before their first game?

Any input is appreciated, thanks!

Back when Making Fun was a thing, I ran into an opponent named DONTMAKEMEPLAYTHEBASESET.

I made them play the base set.

Yes, all the piles were in the supply. Didn't think about that.

In the game I played I piled out by Donating away my Hunting Grounds to empty the Estates. Market Square could also work, as crj suggested.

Today I played a game in which my opponent started their last turn when 3 piles were already empty. The game did not have Fleet. How was it done?

Rules Questions / Ambassador + Beggar + Lighthouse + Triumph
« on: March 30, 2019, 11:47:39 am »
Sorry for even bringing this up, since it will almost never happen... Say you play a Beggar to gain Coppers to your hand, play Ambassador to return those Coppers to the supply but then your opponent has Lighthouse so they don't gain anything, then you buy the Copper back and then buy Triumph. Since you gained the same card twice in one turn, does it count once or twice for Triumph VP?

I played a game yesterday where my opponent (jeebus) opened Vassal/Exorcist. On turn 3, he played his Vassal and it discarded Exorcist. I'm really sorry jeebus, I definitely didn't deserve that win!

Apothecary + Mint: Apothecary allows you to get big hands of treasure, but then you don't want to trash the Copper with Mint.

Variants and Fan Cards / Re: Dominion Wild Lands
« on: December 07, 2018, 11:00:58 pm »
At my school, they once had a club to create a fan Dominion expansion called "Dominion: Zoo." It did not go well...

Shepherd + Star Chart: Shepherd will often trigger a shuffle with green cards on top of your deck. Then, use Star Chart to make sure you draw the Shepherd with all the green.

This would be a horrible addition, but some people might turn it on if it were added :P

Dear mikechike,

Sorry that I opened 5/2 on a board with Governor and Chapel, and proceeded to trash 3 estates on turn 3. You played a lot better than me but still lost.

Don't forget the name of the card and its type. That leaves room for only 1 or 2 words in the card's actual effect. My guess for the 3-word card would be:


+1 Coffers


which would probably cost around $4. But it seems a little boring, not much you can do with 3 words.

It happens a lot. If you get unlucky as a level ~55 and lose to a level 40 player, you lose a lot of rating. There are always those Sea Hag boards you can't do anything about.
