All righty then, the word of DXV is binding. Though I went through this whole schtick once before IRL and we all agreed that the rulebook said you could count the cards in your opponent's deck. I mean, I'd argue that the letter of the rulebook allows it but that doesn't matter, you can't do that.

Usually the only thing I care about is a rough percentage of how far they are through their shuffle. I've never asked for a count of my opponent's cards in an IRL game before.
You'll get a rough percentage anyway, just at a glance.  I doubt Donald X would suggest that you're not allowed to look at your opponent's deck from across the table; you'd get such information accidentally even if you were trying not to look.

Here's why I don't like this argument for a full log - it implicitly says "Nobody can stop me from cheating, so why not help me cheat?"

It's not cheating, though. It's certainly not a rule in the physical copy of Dominion, and it's obviously not a rule online either. Just because it's not something you are (or I am) willing to do / feel like doing, doesn't mean it's cheating to do it. What's the fundamental difference between trying to remember something in your head and writing it down?
Someone find the quote from Donald X about writing scores in blood on your stomach.

Thank you, based google!

I think I must be punishing myself for something.  I read that entire thread, all however-many-pages of trolling.  Painful reading, seriously.

Not that I intend to play online at all (Hearthstone is already too much of an addiction), but for what it's worth I think Donald's suggestion is the clear winner.

I've just read through all of these now (sure I'm slow to the party, but whatever).  I don't think anyone has mentioned (perhaps because it's so obvious!) the interaction between Arcanum and Watchtower.  That's crazy deck-drawing power right there.  Of course you ideally need to start with Watchtower in hand - but even if not, once you've drawn it it will start undoing the junking you've done so far that turn.  Besides which - Arcanum-Watchtower-Scheme ensures Watchtower topdeck every turn.  I realise the likelihood of that combo is small, but MAN would that be fun to play.

EDIT: Meant to include a line saying - love the cards so far.  Exciting stuff. :)

Or KC it to start your next hand with +15 cards, +3 buys, +3 actions
OK, that's just disgusting. :)
