Fool + Band of Misfits/Overlord

Not a spectacular combo, but Fool is often a card you don't particularly want to buy or have in your deck - after all once you have Lost in the Woods, it does nothing. Using Band of Misfits or Overlord to play it, you'll never draw a Fool dead.

Are we really at a point in Dominion "discussion" where we can't talk about Copper, the most simple of Dominion cards without bringing up meaningless and obfuscating comparisons to other, totally unrelated, cards? Comparing Copper to Peddler in no way improves my understanding of Dominion.

Vassal and Tactician: Ever okay, or always a mistake?

Playing the card you draw with Vassal is optional, not forced. Vassal + Tactician seems fine.

Wachsmuth 3 - 1 Rabid

My picks first. I went first in the first game, then we alternated.

Adventures + Hinterlands - Wachsmuth wins

Cornucopia + Seaside - Rabid wins

Dark Ages + Base - Wachsmuth wins

Prosperity + Empires - Wachsmuth wins

wachsmuth 3 - 0 Burning Skull

Game 1 - first player: wachsmuth - Adventures, Empires
Game 2 - first player: Burning Skull - Base, Prosperity
Game 3 - first player: wachsmuth - Dark Ages, Promos

Wachsmuth wins all 3 games.

If anyone would like to watch the match, Burning Skull put in on YouTube:

It's also good etiquette to take a win when you see it, and not fool around unnecessarily. Presumably at some point you'd have won guaranteed.

Also I have no problem with resigning, and will do so, if I think I'm in a totally lost position. And I would certainly resign if my opponent fooled around for unnecessarily long after winning.

#5 is the only one I recognise. But on the other hand, having to deal with your Scout crap isn't really related to whether or not Scout gets removed.

Try to play at a time when you're in a good mental state. Make sure you have eaten and slept well beforehand. Don't be too exhausted. Remain hydrated. Recent mild workout and fresh air is also nice. Try not to have other things in your life that will stress you during the game (or at least find a good way to ignore them).

Lurker + Bishop

Infinite Golden Deck on its own. It's not that strong, but if the board has any sufficiently expensive actions, especially relatively weaker ones that don't enable stronger strategies, it can easily be set up to generate 4 or 5 VP a turn. And it also seems like a pretty strong engine payload, since for example gaining and trashing 2 Princes a turn for 10 VP tokens with it seems pretty easy.

I didn't even know there were two people on Count's art...

Just saw Slovakia-Russia in Lille. Entertaining game, no issues at all in the stadium other than a Russian fan lighting a flare. The Slovakian fans are apparently not prone to hooliganism, but still provided great atmosphere.  ;D

Entertaining game, the Slovakians played well. Can't say I'm too sad to see the Russians in trouble results-wise, considering some of their fans.

On an unrelated note: schadd, why don't you ever use the shift key?

He does, notice that his signature has a semicolon.

Just watched Belgium-Italy with a lot of Belgians at a sports bar. The greatest applause was when Lukaku got substituted off the field. Not much of a party to be had :(

Mountain Pass is between turns because of Possession. It has a maximum bid because the "correct" bid might be "unbounded."

I don't understand why that's a problem.  Tokens aren't physically limited, and frankly "you can't buy anything for the remainder of the game" is as easy to keep track of as 40 debt tokens is, isn't it?

I guess the difficult case is where the "correct" answer is somewhere in the 100s or 1000s and you don't want to wait for someone to make those calculations.

There can be a case where the correct bid is basically infinite. Having a bid limit seems a lot more elegant than Player 1 bidding Graham's Number, and player 2 bidding Graham's Number +1.

Seeing as several people seem to be planning this, here's a thread for all of the first impressions now that the rulebook is out to everyone.

I would also be up for doing a first impressions stream. Someone can PM me now if they wanna do one with 2 commentators :)

« on: June 05, 2016, 12:35:56 pm »
Adventurer in an engine is incredibly hard to get to work. I think the best use of Adventurer is plain Adventurer-Big Money, which is a really weak strategy. But there exist boards where it's somehow competitive.

Rules Questions / Re: throne room rules
« on: June 05, 2016, 12:21:33 pm »
Playing a Throne Room on a Throne Room allows you to play 2 other actions twice. It does not allow you to play one action 4 times. 5 Throne Rooms and 1 Festival is not a very good hand, it only gets you 4$ and 3 buys.
