Resignation is your friend, my friend.

Wait, did I just imply that I am resignation? I guess I'll have to resign myself to that...

And... someone needs to go to bed...

Why?

Not challenging, just trying to learn.

If I had to take a stab, I would say that on T5, the collided cards stay in your discard for longer as the deck was reshuffled to deal out the entirety of the hand that turn.  Is that correct?  Or is there something else here?

I mean like, you miss both cards on turn 3/4, having them collide on 5. That's pretty much worst case scenario.

In general, likely turn 3 is worse because early bad luck is worse than later bad luck.

That's pretty much it.

Cards you draw on T5 "miss the reshuffle", because you have to shuffle to draw your hand of 5. Generally, you get to play a card you bought once per deck cycle (ignoring weird cases like Scheme). If it misses the reshuffle, you get to play it once in both deck cycles.

Bah someone else can probably explain this better. There's a Deck Control article somewhere out there that goes into more depth.

EDIT: Ninja'd whyyyyyy.
Idk if turn 3 collision is any worse than turn 4 collision though. Later on early collision is probably worse, but turn 3 vs turn 4 collisions probably don't matter?

Ah, now I get it. I (and I assume paddy) was thinking that you got one of them on 3, the other on 4, and then they collided on 5. This would better than collision on 3, while getting neither on 3 and 4 would be worse.

And, to answer the most recent question, I assume that collision on 3 is absolutely equivalent to collision on 4 (excluding any weirdness with other cards).

This one is small for whatever reason....but more importantly, it actually happened shortly after we got Intrigue.

Talisman, a card that duplicates cheap cards is in the Dominion set with all of the super expensive cards.

There is a meme there somewhere.

The great thing about this is, if you do it in this order, you have a 5-goons hand next turn, and can only play one of them :D

You'd be able to play only 5 goons even if you stacked them in the reverse order.


(wow, I just said "play only 5 goons"...)

I get the feeling this might have went over most of F.DS's meme knowledge  8)
