Support / Re: Accused of playing slow

You're being trolled, both times by the same antisocial loser.

If someone were to be considered actually playing slow, they would be taking minutes between most card plays.

The official Menagerie rulebook is clear:
Exiling a card from the Supply is not "gaining" the card, and will not cause "when you gain this" abilities to happen

Way of the Chameleon says "this turn" on its text to explicitly rule out using its effect on duration effects that activate on future turns. This was due to issues with remembering what you chose when playing IRL.

The official rule book is pretty clear:

"If you play a Duration card using Way of the Chameleon, only the +$ and +Cards you get that turn are affected; for example, if you play Merchant Ship (from Seaside) and use Way of the Chameleon, you will get +2 Cards this turn, but the normal +$2 next turn"

Death Cart was changed in the 2019 card erratas:


As far as I am aware, the new version of the card you see online is not available in a real-life physical form yet, but will be when Dark Ages is next reprinted.

This means you've put it on your dislike list, so it has only 50% of the usual chance to show up, so you should see it half as often as any other card.

It's not boosted in frequency, it's reduced.

I'm guessing there are about 3-400 cards to learn at the silver level so that is quite a few.
Silver subscription adds 129 cards to the pool. So 155 including base.

Feature Requests / Re: Friends-only tables?

Here's an alternate approach. I think maybe on the New Table tab it could have a new third option:
New Public Table
New Private Table
Load Old Game

So making a table split into two. Making a public table the same as now. Making a private table asks you to set a password that anyone entering the table needs to supply to join. Then you tell your friends the password. The table is listed on the tables screen with a padlock icon.

This is how the Worms game series did it in Worms Armageddon and Worms World Party and it was very effective, although it also had a public IRC chat channel in the lobby ingame so people could talk to each other and organise games. This was back in the days of before automatch features when organising was the only option.

Support / Re: Option to hide Victory Point total from other players

It is an option when you set up your own table. There is an "Advanced Options" button at the bottom of the screen, this brings up a number of checkboxes, and "Show VP Counter" can be disabled.

It only does this if you actually have any cards in your discard pile.

Have you set it to respect familiar cards? Some of your friends might not have enough familiar cards selected.

Feature Requests / Link to rule books

With the current free expansion rotations potentially exposing some new players to expansions they've never played before, I think it would be nice if the client could link players to the official rulebooks on the RGG site. Dominion Online just kind of expects players to already understand how to play with all of the cards and what words like "Exile" and "Coffers" and "Debt" mean.

Maybe a new tab called "Rules" on the main menu that has a list of links to the rulebooks? Could say something like "Dominion Online is the official digital implementation of the boardgame Dominion by Donald X Vaccarino and Rio Grande Games. As with all boardgames, you should familiarize yourself with the rules before you play."

Maybe even link to the wiki? I dunno, just something to help people get over that initial hurdle might be nice.

When you create your own table there is a button to select the kingdom cards. Here you can force particular cards, but any slots left empty will be filled with a random card from the expansions you have checked. (There is a checkbox next to each expansion name) If you have not checked any expansion, it will choose a random card from all expansions.

Other Bugs / Wrong Intrigue 2nd Edition box art
« on: 30 January 2020, 12:07:34 AM »
On the account menu there is a list of all expansions with a picture of their box art.

Intrigue is still using THAT second edition artwork. Yeah, you know the one. It should look like this now: http://riograndegames.com/Game/1311-Dominion-Intrigue-2nd-edition

I know that undoing the Play All Treasures button does not need confirmation from the other player. Not sure if there are any other situations.

Goons / Highway / Forum / Trader is an actually infinite point combo. Play 5 highways and then Goons with Trader in your hand. Buy a Forum (that now costs zero) and react with Trader, gaining a silver, a point, and getting your buy back, but not lowering the Forum pile. This continues to work and give points even when the silver pile empties. Repeat buying Forum and reacting Trader until you die of starvation.
