    Default Dominion

    Dominion is a card game. Each card has a simple label (e.g. '$2') or has instructions on what you can do with it. I learned it last week by playing a couple of games and had fun. It's simple and straightforward, not cumbersome like Magic or Catan. Each game uses different cards and lasts ~45 minutes.

    If you'd like to play, post below.

    That sounds cool. I'm going to buy it and come back when I learn how to play.

    You don't have to buy anything though, unless you want to. The physical cards are overpriced, I think. I was telling my friends that we could make cards ourselves.

    Also, for the others: You don't have to learn it before we play.

    Friday (except this this one), Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday are the best nights for me. I'm usually free all day Sunday (except this Sunday although I could probably do Sunday night).

    (btw I live in GMT -6 aka CST)

    Let's try Sunday night, and if not, Tuesday night. Idle on IRC when you are available.

    You'll get better, like how I blew it in the second game by not ending it when I could.

    Next time, we'll turn on veto mode to remove the Thief if it shows up, because we had it both games and it's obnoxious.

    Here are the rules for dominion if anyone is interested in reading them: http://riograndegames.com/uploads/Ga..._gameRules.pdf

    I thought some of the rules were a little confusing until I actually played the game. Nice thing about playing online is that the program won't let you make illegal plays.

    When are we playing again because I really want to play asap.

    Let's play Sunday, when coq and Nermy may be around.

    Infernus, the basic strategy is don't buy victory point cards too early, figure out which cards are useful early on and later, and keep a mental estimate of how many points you have.

    And for god's sake stop buying so many Estate and Duchy cards. It's far better to buy one Province card than 2 Duchy or 6 Estate cards. That's the biggest problem I noticed when I played against you Infernus. When you fill your deck with Duchy and Estate cards you have a lower chance of drawing a bunch of good cards in your hand at one time.

    Neato. I'm in for a game at some point.


    EDIT: OOOOOH... there's a VERY similar game on Amazon's Android market called Fortunes of War. Really fun game, and I anticipate that this one will be as well.

    Just letting you guys know I won the last two games.

    It's really fun and I hope more people join us. What days are you good for scyld? So far we've only played on Tuesday but I'm sure if enough people want to play we can also play on another day.

    If this is still running in mid-late april, I'll definitely join in. Between work, social life, school, tutoring and taking care of my own business, I hardly have time to do anything extra, even setting aside 3 hours on a tuesday to take part in this game.
