Version (aka previews-2)

This version previews Acting Troupe, Sculptor & Recruiter.
In a preview game today you will get one of those, plus two from yesterdays previews.

These cards introduce the concept of Villagers. The number of Villagers you have will be displayed in your personal info box, and also right next to your Actions counter when it's your turn. The easiest way to use Villagers is to just click on the Action cards in your hand. To warn you that you will be using a Villager the "0 Actions" will be in red, and the border around your cards will be blue (instead of green). This will be sufficient in >99% of the games. More about that here.

Version 1.4.0 (aka previews-1)

  • This week we're doing previews of the latest expansion, Dominion:Renaissance. We will add some additional cards every day. The previews are free to play for everyone; you can't buy Renaissance yet. The full set will be available in the store simultaneous with the release of the physical card game, currently expected mid October.
  • The easiest way is to go the matching tab and press the "Renaissance Previews" button for a 2 player preview game against a random human opponent. If you want to play against Lord Rat, choose the "Preview vs. Bot" button (down in the "Bot game" pane).
  • more options: Select the "Advanced options" checkbox at the lower end of the "Automatch" pane. Now in addition to all the usual options you can check the "Renaissance Previews" checkbox to be placed in the preview queue. This way you can for example wait for a 3-player game to form, or use your preferred rating requirements.

Game updates: This is a summary. For a full description, click here.
  • Bigger status bar (center of screen) with Coffers mat and debt shown
  • Player info bar (with a player's name and VP count) shows reminders (states, Haunted Woods effect,...) and omits counters that currently are zero.
  • The log will now always show variable amount of +Actions, +Buys, +Coins (for example +Coins from Steward or Bank, and +Buys from Squire). There also is an option that allows you to log all +Actions, +Buys and +Coins. If you're an experienced player you probably want to turn it off.
  • Right-clicking a card now will also show you cards that are associated with it, like the Prizes for Tournament or Exorcist for a Ghost.
  • Durations that go away this turn do not 'mix' in a stack with Durations that stay in play.
  • It's now possible to find out what cards are under your Archives, Crypts etc (hover over the card or a player name).
  • The Autoplay Treasure button is improved.
         - Autoplaying Silvers (with Sauna) implies you don't want to trash. (If you do, play your Silvers manually).
         - It will no longer play Treasures that have your +Card token on them (from Pathfinding)
         - undoing this action no longer requires your opponent's approval.
  • Certain card selections from many cards (say discard pile or trash) now stack the same cards together, so it is easier to find the one you want.

  • bugfix: Undo with Den of Sin, Horse Traders or Arena in the game would result in a blanked out game log
  • bugfix: the 'random card from expansion X' wasn't translated (was always in English)

Version 1.3.15

  • Store now also offers 2-months option, convenient for players that want to sign up to the tournament.
  • Kingdom creator now has an option for 'a random card from a specific expansion'
    This is useful if you want to play with e.g. 5 cards from Intrigue and 5 cards from Seaside but don't want to specify which ones yourself.
  • Fix for grayed out subscriptions that ran out.
  • Some minor card bug fixes.

This release is quite small, despite being a long time after the previous release. Currently most work is done on the renaissance branch, which will go live with the online previews of Dominion:Renaissance in the last week of this month.

Connection Problems / Re: Oregon server very slow
« on: 31 August 2018, 10:18:07 AM »
I've played over 200 hundred games over the past several weeks. The problem hasn't been consistent.

It was very, very bad a couple of days ago, but it hasn't been a constant thing.

This is consistent with my observations. Here is an image of the cpu load of the oregon game server I made yesterday.
I don't know the cause yet (normally it shouldn't get above 2-3%) but clearly it is related to that huge lag spike.

Indeed some need to be changed. Others just get banned. In this case it was the latter.

Sorry about that. I made the problem go away for now, although this won't be a permanent solution.
I will have to investigate further.

General Discussion / Re: This community is broken
« on: 28 August 2018, 02:37:31 PM »
We have different views about keeping a community healthy. You seem to think the solution is in punishment; I fundamentally do not believe in it.

If I would, I would have removed Fastman (aka DominionTroll, TheAnnoyer, ...) from this forum some time ago, and probably Adam along with him. Both of you say something useful from time to time, but in my personal opinion it just doesn't make up for the negativity you produce along with it. I also can't believe that it is an attitude that helps you more then it hurts you in the rest of your life.

Feel free to continue doing whatever you like doing though, my belief in free speech is much stronger then my desire to control. The fact that I don't respond to many of these discussions does not imply that I don't care - I just don't really see a merit in having these kinds of arguments over the internet. Criticizing the volunteers is a good way to call me out, or so it seems.

Personally I do enjoy playing games against this community a lot; talking on dominion discords is also good fun and almost exclusively with nice people.

Hi anyone :)
I logged in but I've never received the e-mail to confirm my account.. I tryed ore than once, but nothing..

Hi Laugise,

Have you looked in your spam folder? Unfortunately hotmail is notorious for being troublesome here.
If you also have a non-hotmail email that would work for sure.

Support / Re: Subscription payed per transfer
« on: 17 August 2018, 01:00:05 PM »
So if the status of my payment screen says payment can be started, it doesnt explicit mean the transaction have failed?

I'm sorry, I have no idea what your payment screen status looks like. If you have made payments with SEPA-transfer before to anyone else, I suggest you just do the same as you did in those cases. To me "can be started" sounds like you have to start it?

From my point of view, the payment hasn't failed. It's open (=pending). Basically you have promised to send money to my payment provider, but that money hasn't arrived yet.

How long does it normally take until i have my subscription payed via transfer? When i go to my payment process mail it shows payment can be started but i already have done that. I that a bug or went something wrong by my part. Need help :'(

This depends widely on the method of payment. PayPal, Credit Card, Ideal are instant.

What you are using - SEPA transfer - is very unpredictable and it takes anything between 10 seconds and 5 days for your bank to actually send the money to our payment provider. I just checked your transfer status and it still says 'open'. The good news is that they all come through at some point though, except for the timing I get zero complaints about SEPA transfers.

Support / Re: Gift Subscription?
« on: 15 August 2018, 09:26:40 AM »
I am running a dominion tournament at a local gaming convention and want to offer X months of  Gold/Silver for the top 3 players.  Is there a way to purchase a code for an account so I can distribute it to them?  I don't want to give them money, nor do I want to log into their account.

If I can't do it, NBD.  But it would be a cool thing!

I have helped a couple of people with this in the past and could do that again. The idea is you create a new account and buy a subscription on it but never play with it; I can then delete the account & move the subscription over to some other account(s).

Alternatively, I could give you codes to play with the new expansion for a year. That would be easier for me, as I have to generate those codes anyway.

Bump, could someone in charge please respond.


Yes, I can respond, but I don't have anything new to say.
Development hasn't progressed as I planned lately, but I haven't changed the schedule for this (yet?).

Connection Problems / Re: Tokyo server very laggy

these problems should be fixed now. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Game Log Issues / Re: War and Order
« on: 17 July 2018, 11:43:47 AM »
Yes, when cards get summarized in one line, they're not always in the correct order.

Is there any reason why this could possibly be a good thing? I think it's only ever confused me. Seems like it should be put on the backlog to fix this.

Indeed there is no good reasoning, it's a bug.
