I know you are all exited for Adventures. So, i made a poll to finally answer the one question that we all have been pondering for the last few weeks.

I want to apologize to anyone who expected a verily important poll here. Also i want to make clear that i do not actually support violence against playtesters, who helped making Dominion the awesome game it is, or printing out the Harem card art in poster size.

I'd rather use the Dominion: Adventures' instruction booklet as a weapon so that the pain caused by the expansion could be complete.

Or perhaps FAQ-handed?

I really don't know how to take threads and comments like this. I feel like I've been very subdued about this whole thing but that's not the perception, and that makes me sad.

It's not an actual serious problem.  It's just light-hearted frustration.

Yeah I know (or at least I've assumed) but I'm included in that group of people. If I'm going to get beaten with a Dominion art poster I would vastly prefer Steward, but apparently it has to be Harem. Ugh.

When Prince came out, I remember LF was playtesting that and I felt nothing like this toward him, I'm part of that group and it reflects on me too, and I'm partially responsible.

But I can't tell if there's actually any ill will or if this is just all based on excitement and lots of people wanting to be playtesters. I know a lot of people would love to be in any of our positions right now...

Don't flatter yourself, they're just mad at me.

I'm sorry if this thread hurt your or any other playtesters' s feelings. That was not my intention and i feel very bad about the fact that it apparently hurt yours. I just wanted to do something funny (and possibly communicate the message of "Argh, please stop reminding me i know nothing, i'm excited enough as is"). But the focus was humour, and i figured the redundant choices and the absurd punishment made that clear. I knew it could be taken as an angry attack at you guys when i posted it, but i decided my stupid jokes were known well enough to recognize i'm just fooling around. Sorry if i messed up. I really didn't mean any harm  :-[

For me it has nothing to do with the playtesting.  The first few jokes were funny, but they were overused very fast.

To show how even handed I am, I feel the same about Moat jokes.  They stopped being funny when they moved into spoilers.

This thread has made up for a lot of bad preview jokes though.

My feelings aren't hurt, don't worry. Especially about this post. I'm not sure how I feel (like I said) but it's not mad at anyone for suresies.

Guys, be serious.  He obviously didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings.  He meant to hurt their bodies.

I tend to agree, except for        Moat

I really don't even know the origin and meaning of the        Moat        thing

So I keep wondering, why is everyone talking about        Moat        ?

To be more specific, whenever there was a puzzle on the forums, he would answer, "Is it Moat?"
