the ruins of the 7th expansion.

More interesting Dominion cards are always welcome but I sincerely hope that they will improve the packaging in future expansions. A simple box used to hold CCG cards with Dominion theming and separators would be great for space saving.

No one mentioned it, because it's old news. It was in the first behind the scenes on the original game.

And might have been higher than 7 at that point, I don't quite remember.

Yeah, I'm almost finished playing each of the 1.2 trillion combinations, and I'm wondering the same thing myself.

Let's see, by my calculations, the number of combinations I have left to try is about... 1.2 trillion. Yep, almost done.

The human mind gets a certain enjoyment out of waiting for something good in the future. I know I've been happily waiting for seaside since the day I got Intrigue despite the fact that I don't feel close to having explored the depth of that set even today. Now I've got Seaside but nothing to look forward to...

I had a feeling that the original Lookout put the third card into the player's hand. Did you test it without the +Action, or was it just too wimpy without it?

You know, so you don't have to carefully keep the order the same. Anyway they didn't actually complain about this one but I changed it to let you reorder the cards anyway. It makes the card marginally more powerful.

Yes, in fact, I'm a bit surprised we weren't more cantankerous about this card either. But in the end, it's my favorite card in the set. The best looking one by far as well.

Won't you get in trouble if the Explorer hears you say that?

It doesn't surprise me either. In fact, the first time I played with Lookout I was mistakenly putting the third card in my hand. It was very nice that way. whistle

Awesome post, Donald X! I love how you just casually say, "but that fits with the 4th Expansion." You ever feel like you're printing your own money?

I thought that was funny as well. We misplayed this first time too, and had baron out in the set, so I was using lookout to get to my estate or baron to get +4 treasure with pretty much every turn, it was insane. After buying my 3rd province on my 6th turn, the whole group was having mumblings about that combination being insane and then we realized that we had been misplaying lookout.

The combination of a targeted card draw with deck thinning was crazy cool. I do like the idea of "+1 action, look at the next 3 cards, put one in your hand and discard the rest" but it's pretty similar to other stuff out there, just limits your discarding to the 3 cards you looked at, etc. Plus, without the thinning it's not nearly as powerful.

I'd love to say my thanks here, too.
Just played it for almost 8 hours yesterday. Life-changing game! :)




Just a side question:
Did any pirate ship hits 6 coins in a 4-player playtesting game when a player uses it the second time (around turn 6-8)? It seems to amplify the turn-order problem a lot (mentioned in the strategy forum in original Dominion) that the last person to use pirate ship ends up with fewer coins.

Anyway it was quite an experience to have my deck completely drained out of treasure (and unable to get new one since player 2, 3 still trying to loot) and while the player who started first grabs a Province everytime his 6-coin pirate ship shows up.

Do you know that you can only get one coin on your pirate ship each time you play it?

Fishing Village: This was temporarily in the 3rd expansion. When I decided I wasn't just going to put "next turn" stuff everywhere, it moved here. For most of its life it gave you +2 actions next turn (and was otherwise the same). This was a card the developers cited as too good, and I just nudged it down by dropping it to +1 action next turn. It makes it worse in the situations where it was at its best. It is still plenty popular as is.

I like the symmetry of the Fishing Village in that you net the same benefit on this turn and the next.

Now there's no reason to take that line. I think we should tackle this like adults instead of just letting the insults fly. (Although I must confess I'm hooked on this thread.)
