Support / Re: Goko expansions
« Last post by Ingix on Today at 09:05:05 AM »
Hi Berverly,

the reality is unfortunately that you won't get your expansions back for free now. All the 'old' subscribers got one free year when this new service started January 2017, but that time is long over.

Many 'latercomers' here feel/felt cheated and angry that they lost their permanent access to the cards they paid for, which I totally understand. I personally was OK with Goko and didn't know what to expect from this new service by a new company (Shuffle iT, which I now help out a bit, so I'm the first to admit I'm not unbiased).

It's not like the same people you paid money to did something new and wanted more money. The license from Rio Grande Games to make an online Dominion game was always time limited. It probably got extended for GoKO once or twice (I don't know anything about the contracts and forgot about the time span the game was on GoKo), but then at some point it wasn't.

So basically the poeple who sold you the the expansions "for life", when they knew they couldn't make sure that stays true, are the onea to blame (I guess that somewhere in their Terms of Service this was stated, but like you I didn't expect it to go away 'that soon').

Shuffle iT took over the license and started January 2017. Their business model sounds much worse for the player, you only "rent" the cards for a given time, then have to pay again. But it honestly acknowledges the reality that the license could go away, so it would be unfair to promise "for life". From what I understand, the license was last year extended to until end of 2021.

You can play the cards from the base game for free against a computer AI or other players. If you play against other players, the cards used are taken from what both players rented, so if the other player(s) have rented expansions, cards from them will come up in the generated kingdom.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask, and I hope you'll give this implementation a chance.

I think this may be the wrong forum for you to post on. Shuffle iT has no affiliation with Goko, and thus is not responsible for Goko’s promises to you.

It’s like asking Samsung to fix your lifetime guaranteed Apple iPhone.

Support / Goko expansions
« Last post by beverly on Today at 12:32:56 AM »
Hi there,
I started playing Dominion online when it was owned by Goko. I bought the full expansion set at the time for $45. It said it was going to last forever. But, now I see that I can't access the expansion packs on this new platform. I feel cheated. Can you please restore my access to the expansion packs I bought on 12/14/14? I believe they were: Base, Intrigue, Seaside, Alchemy, Prosperity, Cornucopia, Hinterlands, Dark Ages, Guilds.

Item Description:   450 Gokoins
Description:   450 Gokoins
Amount:   $45.00

I don't think it's fair to sell a "lifetime" online game, but then later revoke it. I would not have purchased this $45 product if I knew it was only for a limited one-year subscription.

Thanks,
Beverly

Thanks for the report, Paul!

That sounds very strange, no similar reports have been made yet.

The 5 min interval sounds like some screensaving/batterysaving is going on. Does the bahvior only affect the dominion.games site, or other internet pages as well?

Support / screen blanks out every 5 minutes
« Last post by paulmcnabb on 20 January 2020, 05:28:09 PM »
I'm running on a Dell laptop using an external monitor.  I'm using Windows 10 Pro and Firefox 72.0.1.

Every 5 minutes or so, the screen goes crazy.  It's blacked out with only the outlines of the cards showing and some text.  I can play if I can guess at what is showing.  Zooming and unzooming the screen causes some of the cards to appear, but the background and my hand are still blacked out.  But when I then make a play, it goes back into full-bad-mode.

Everything works fine on my tablet, it's just the PC version that has video problems.

Any ideas?

Support / Re: Delete my Dominion account
« Last post by Seraphim625 on 20 January 2020, 01:23:14 PM »
I would like my account to be deleted as well (for dominion.games and this forum), please. In my opinion it's very unusual and impractical to have to register into a forum just to have an account deleted in another application. Why not just give us the option to delete our own account within the account options on the game page?

Thanks,

Feature Requests / Dominion as a Team
« Last post by Tex81 on 19 January 2020, 01:01:56 AM »
Team Dominion
I believe this game can be adapted to play as teams.  This could bring a new dimension to tournaments.
Game play proceeds as normal with a few changes:
People across the table from each other are on teams.    When each person at the table has had one turn, that is considered a round.  Dealing of a new hand is only done at the end of a round.
For example, Jeff and Mary are on one team and Zach and Sarah are on another team.
For the first round, play starts with Sarah.  Before she plays an action card, Zach says, “Can I play now?” and Sarah looks at her hand and says, “Yes”.  Zach takes a Village card from his hand and plays it in front of Sarah.  Sarah then does what it says on the Village card (draws a card and has 2 actions).  Sarah plays one of her action cards - Courtyard and draws 3 and puts one back.  Zach again says, “Can I play now?” and Sarah says “No.”  Sarah moves into the buy phase and puts down two gold and a silver and keeps a silver in her hand.  She buys a Province and play passes to Jeff.  Similar things occur on Jeff’s turn with Mary asking “Can I play now?”.  When play passes to Zach, he only has four cards, since he played one for Sarah.  He plays another Village, draws a card, etc.  When he gets to the buy phase, He puts down two silvers.  Sarah then asks “Can I play now?”.  Zach says “Yes”, so she puts down her silver with his silvers and Zach then buys a gold.  After Mary’s similar turn, all players put all the cards in front of them in their discard pile (yes, some cards have changed players at this point), and deal themselves new hands.  Jeff then starts the next round and Sarah ends up going last.
Duration cards like Wharf or Fishing Village still stay in front of the person for whom they were played until that person plays again.
When the game ends, the total Victory points for each team is calculated and the winning team is determined.
Imagine the possibilities!

General Discussion / Re: How many players are there?
« Last post by skillwinlucklose on 18 January 2020, 10:16:16 PM »
Thanks
 I can see other players (friends) on the leaderboard with levels from 27 to 34 and ranking from 40,000 to 87,000. So there are at least 87,000 registered player names. It appears that the players, level 34 and below that I can see, have not played for quite some time as their "games played" number has not changed. If that is the case then there are less than 40,000 active players. Which is still a staggering number.
 Sometimes I think there must only be a dozen active players when I am paired with the same ones again and again.  :)
