« on: 19 February 2021, 09:23:37 AM »
For about 48 hours I was completely unable to access the game website. Was there a problem?

Support / Problem with Swindler and Lucky Coin
« on: 07 August 2018, 03:27:46 AM »
Odd combination this. I played a Swindler, the AI trashed a lucky coin, but as there was no card worth 1 the game then completely froze. Any ideas?

Thanks for this opportunity Stef please see comments below

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots

I would like this as I have problems being on line at times.
 2. A bot with a setting for different play styles

I do most of my playing against bots. I normally do 2 player and I find Lord Rattington very limited. In particular when he is using Apothecary or Counterfeit, he will pursue those cards against any rationality and the game is always an easy win.

I would like to have a range of different bots with different characteristics, some obvious and some random a bit like the opponents in Sid Meir’s Civilization.

 3. A strong bot.

Being able to calibrate the strength of the bot would be helpful, again see ref to civilisation above.

 4. Options for timed games

Could be interesting could be done like a chess tournament match with an on screen clock. You could agree with your opponent time to look at cards at the beginning and then an overall time for the game divided by 2

 5. Options for undo settings

I don’t really like undo, it’s ok with bots but then the temptation is to go back and back to create the ultimate right game. With live opponents it creates a potential for conflict, again before a game the players could agree for undo to be on/off. You could also get a max of one or two asks per game.

 6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.

Could be fun

 7. Option to invite specific players to your table

Not specifically bothered.

 8. More translations (to what language?)

Won’t help me except it might increase interaction with players who are not English speakers.

 9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/…

I don’t like the current animation, the swirling of the cards makes me feel slightly nauseated and it puts me off 4 player games which I used to play all the time under the MF system. The four player system is far too crowded.

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...

Split piles yes, so that you had an explanation when you put the cursor over it.
Also here’s an idea, not in line with the rules but why not shuffle the split pile.

10. Option to hide the log

Yes

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)

N/A

12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)

I probably wouldn’t use it, the screen is too small

13. Downloadable game logs

Can’t see the point.

14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, …)

Yes. There should be an easily visible report button

15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion

Yes

Could it include a brief on each expansion and the philosophy behind it.

16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.

Yes

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to feedback and I appreciate your sensitivity to those of us who used to be MF clients.

Couple of other things.

I really don’t like the layout in Familiar Cards. Could it not also encompass the other features that have come in with recent expansions.
 Also could there be options so that we draw from certain sets so eg that you could have a game using basic, intrigue and nocturne as an option?

With thanks

Sometimes people disappear because RL intervenes or computer glitches occur. I think its nice to be forgiving

Support / Familiar cards
« on: 25 January 2017, 09:48:08 AM »
I don't undertstand how the familiar cards page works, I can open it but can't do anything to indicate which my familiar cards are. Occasionally cards grey out but I can't see how that has happened and it isn't clear if a grey' out card is familiar or unfamiliar. I think its a good concept but a bit more explanation and guidance would be appreciated.

I am on a mac and accessing the website through Safari

General Discussion / Overpowerful Possession
« on: 21 January 2017, 11:01:09 PM »
Hi

I'm starting to enjoy the new Dominion after some initial hiccoughs. But I have an issue with how possession is playing. In the MF version you could only do one extra play with possession. While playing a game today my opponent played possession twice in a row so had in effect 3 goes on the trot. He did this twice the second time using my possession card to possess my hand! Amazingly I still won the game but it was really tedious having long periods watching someone else play my cards. I think this should be limited, and I thought that was how the card was played in the alchemy version card game.

General Discussion / Re: Nothing shows on my screen!
« on: 01 January 2017, 12:43:37 PM »
I have exactly the same problem and I see that others do as well. While I can see that having nothing going on for a long time is a good simulation of life in a quasi medieval environment, it was not what I was expecting.  Please can we have some response from those who have developed this new version of a much loved game, at this point I can't see anything positive in moving away from MF although that may be in part because i can't see anything at all.
