Please take a look at this:

Turn 5 - Neha-B
N plays a Haggler.
N gets +$2.
N plays 2 Coppers. (+$2)
N buys a Messenger.
N gains a Harbinger.
N gains a Copper.
W gains a Copper.
N gains a Messenger.
N draws 5 cards.

I think I should have got a Harbinger, but I got a copper. I re-read Messenger and Haggler and came to the conclusion that my thought is correct, so I guess it's a bug?
Card Bugs / Counterfeit a Magic Lamp
11 July 2020, 01:02:40 PM
Dear Stef or maybe Donald?

I am not sure if this is actually a bug or intended. So i counterfeited a magic lamp.

Magic Lamp: When you play this, if there are at least 6 cards that you have exactly 1 copy of in play, trash this. If you do, gain 3 Wishes from their pile.   

Counterfeit: When you play this, you may play a Treasure from your hand twice. If you do, trash that Treasure.
FAQ Counterfeit: If you use Counterfeit to play a Treasure that does something special when you play it (such as another Counterfeit), you will do that thing twice.

I think, it should happen as following:
1) i play counterfeit as my 5th unique card
2) i follow the instructions step by step
3) counterfeit reads:: you may play a treasure [...]
4) i play magic lamp counterfeited
5) magic lamp counts 5 unique cards, plus itself as the sixth card. Three wishes are granted.
6) counterfeit reads:: [...] twice  [...]
7) i play magic lamp again
8) magic lamp counts fife unique cards, plus itself as the sixth card. Three wishes are granted.
9) counterfeit reads: If you do (check: yes i did), trash that Treasure.
10) magic lamp gets trashed, leaving me with five unique cards

Actually, this happened:

W plays a Counterfeit. (+$1)
W gets +1 Buy.
W plays a Magic Lamp. (+$1)
W trashes a Magic Lamp.
Counterfeit can no longer move Magic Lamp (it already moved).
W gets 1 VP from Tomb.
W gains 3 Wishes.
W plays a Magic Lamp again. (+$1)

I understand that the 2nd Magic Lamp did not grant wishes, because it did not count enough unique cards as it already trashed itself. But in my understanding, that is wrong (see above): Magic Lamp should count 6 cards twice, then get trashed.

Am i wrong, or is ShuffleIt wrong? Please, if possible, include a detailed explanation why the lamp is trashed in between.

Best regards,

Now that I've had a taste of Autoplay, I find myself right-clicking on tons of different cards trying to turn it on.
I was really sad when there was no "take all copper" autoplay for the counting house!

Thanks for the clarifications. So, Prince of Necromancers is possible, but a Necromanced Prince is not  8)
Card Bugs / Necromancer + Encampement

Lets say there is an Encampement in the trash and I play it via Necromancer, but do not show a gold. ShuffleIt lets the Encampement stay in the trash. I think it should move back into the kingdom.

Sequence as i think it should bed:
Necromancer: Play Card from the trash, turn it face down afterwards.
Encampement gets played, does not see a gold and gets set aside. Necromancer tries to turn it face down but looses track. Encampement gets put back on its pile.
Quoteand when we're at a table, when we want to read a card, we can just take it. on a computer we have to simply right click it
fixed that for you
just my 2 cents:
I think putting those cards upside down was a very clever way to have the cards visible without taking away too much screen space. It also has a nice flair, call it "authentic" - the other player "sits" at the other side of the screen / table.
So if you ever need a voice saying "i like the upside down cards", quote me.

Ever lost a game of puerto rico because when there is only one coffee, and you need that coffee, the player left to you played a settler and took it? Even worse, that player made a wrong decision because he should have taken a quarry (or not taken the settler), and is rushing corn? And to make it EVEN worse, the player to your left is not even aware that he just destroyed your masterful plan?
I did.
Guess what. I neither claim that puerto rico is a luck-based game, nor did i stop playing puerto rico.
Chess, go away. That game is totally over-rated and has nothing to do with strategy. you try to memorise the openings and some sequences, and whoever memorises that best wins.
Magic. Really? I wont even start typing :-)

What made me a better player in dominion, in magic, in puerto rico, in warhammer 40k and in every other game i ever played was .... backgammon. My advice: go and play a few thousand games of backgammon. that game is completely luck based (you roll die!). The good players will win 90% of the time ... always. Backgammon told me the difference between luck and perception.
if you "wait for expansion" but dont own them, it takes longer. Maybe your subscription ran out?

... So they'd be courteous in games?

No. But I could imagine a "vote me good" thread in some forum, where you meet to get a heart-vote. I can also imagine spam-accounts used only to vote. I can even imagine ppl threaten others in chat, like "give me a heart or you will get 50 bolts from my downvote-bot-army".
PPl would start to farm hearts like they farm likes at social media.

Found it!

Maybe you can get in contact with Hertz, as he seems to have some good and creative ideas about this.

We had a nice thread about child-friendly dominion (that was pre-nocturne). Lets see if i can find the link.
