Welcome to the DominionStrategy Wiki Council Room!!


[edit] Before you ask a question

  • If you are asking a question, do your research first. You will usually get a quicker answer.
    • If it is a question about Dominion rules: Read the FAQ section on the card page(s) (and other relevant pages) first. You may also want to try the BGG rules forum or a search engine.
    • If you are a beginner looking for entry-level strategy guides: New To Dominion is a good place to start.
    • If it is about Dominion terms / the lingo: Check out the Glossary.
    • If you are having trouble editing the wiki (not specific to this wiki): The Wikipedia Cheatsheet might help. Test edits goes to the sandbox

[edit] Starting and replying a topic

  • To start a new discussion topic, click "New Section" to the top-right, or press alt-shift-+.
  • Insert 4 tildes (~~~~) to the end of your post. This signs your post with your username and a timestamp.
  • You may want to use section edits when replying so you aren't faced with a wall of text and you prevent mis-edits.
  • Use colons(:) when replying to comments. This indents text for readability. Use multiple colons when replying to a reply.
  • Use <s>Text</s> to strike out instead of removing text if it is easier to follow the discussion that way.
  • For more editing help, click here.
  • Please do not remove others' comments, except to fix formatting errors that interfere with readability.
  • Offensive and unrelated material will be removed.

[edit] Editing crossposted articles

What is the editing policy with regard to strategy articles imported from the blog/forum? E.g., if I spot a typo or misspelling in the wiki, should I fix it or should I leave it as it is to preserve the post as it was originally? 08:31, 9 December 2012 (EST)

Editing is fine. This should be the ressource of "correct" data, so if you find something that is outdated or simply wrong, then feel free to correct it. --Qvist (talk) 08:51, 9 December 2012 (EST)

I was wondering the same thing, if we could even heavily edit the articles and merely cite the thread/web page the article came from. Sometimes the wording and sections aren't quite "wiki-like" and could use some "wikification" at the expense of the exact wording of the original article. Thoughts? -Thirtyseven (talk) 19:21, 10 December 2012 (EST)

I think that's appropriate. Heck, a bunch of the earlier articles probably can be updated to talk about interactions with new cards and such anyway, and the community's certainly gotten better since the early days. The posted articles should be the starting point, but not necessarily the final version, that's why they're on the wiki. The original will stay on the blog.

I 'Wikified' DevelopDevelop.jpg recently! 07:55, 15 August 2015 (EDT)

[edit] Trivia regarding card names

I found these posts on BoardGameGeek where Donald X talks about some cards and how their names came about:

Would it be OK to include in the Trivia section of their respective articles?

Of course, go for it! -Thirtyseven (talk) 15:50, 5 January 2013 (EST)

[edit] Fan Cards

Is there a policy regarding posting of fan cards to the strategy wiki? I personally don't think it is appropriate for the strategy wiki since it is about Dominion, and fan cards, technically, are not Dominion. However, if you want to avoid this, I think it would be appropriate to put something on the main page indicating this. That way you have something concrete to point to when someone steps over the line. --Murphy (talk) 13:33, 16 February 2015 (EST)

  • If someone wants to start a wiki dedicated to fan cards, that would probably be the best way to do things. Alternatively informing people to create a forum post and linking to it from the Fan Card page could also be a decent alternative.

[edit] CAPTCHA

Good that you are using QuestyCaptcha, but IMHO the questions are too hard. As someone who played Dominion several times, but does not own all decks etc., I needed multiple tries and I finally succeeded only because I found a question whose answer I could find with a search in the wiki. QuestyCaptcha questions should only be hard enough to be impossible for a bot to solve, rather than so hard as to discriminate between people. It might be ok to have harder questions as long as they can all be solved by a simple search in the wiki, so I suggest you go through the questions to check they can. --Nemo bis (talk) 04:59, 15 August 2015 (EDT)

All the QuestyCaptcha answers can be found on the wiki, I was stuck at "Which card type is red?" and found shelter! 08:00, 15 August 2015 (EDT)
I could not and still cannot easily find the answer to this question: "Which set is the only set which has no card costing $2?" I only found the answer by going through the expansions one by one (the answer is Prosperity btw). And even if I could find the answer by searching the wiki, I could not be arsed to do so if I had just wanted to make a simple edit. CAPTCHAs are normally meant to keep out bots and let in the humans. If the intention is to only let in the hardcore players, that's one thing, but these questions are too hard for mere humans. 14:35, 19 September 2018 (EDT)

[edit] Today's vandalism

I've reverted all of Special:Contributions/‎, except that the new page "G̥̪̱̮̱̞ͅIV̧̘̤̪̘̰̞E ̷͕̜̥̳MO̢̻̞̰̩̩N̨͈͈͇I͙̘ ͎͎́G̮I͏̹̟̩̲͕̘̙V̷̖͙͉̞̦̬E ̝̪̤͉̺̖Ṃ͓O̺̩͔͙N̫̝̬I̶̦̤̼̤̲͔̳ G̬̞͇̯͔͍͢ͅI̭̰͈̙̝̠̤V̰̠̲͡Ḙ͓͖̤ M̺̼̤̬ǪǸ͚̺̖͉̤̳I͞" needs to be deleted. -- John of Reading (talk) 17:02, 23 June 2017 (EDT)

[edit] Nocturne/Locusts: How to interpret card text: "...gain a cheaper card that shares a type with it."

A friend of mine and I do not agree on how the card LocustsLocusts.jpg should be dealt with. The card says: "...gain a cheaper card that shares a type with it."

So when a card has 2 or more types on it does that mean you can gain any cards that has one of those types on it, costing less than the trashed card, or does the gained card have to have exactly the same types on it as the one you trashed? I interpret it as one of the types named on the card. Is that correct?

What about when you end up trashing the card Will-o'-WispWill-o'-Wisp.jpg? Do you gain any card at all in that situation?

Only played Nocturne a few times but so far love this expansion!

[edit] 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. The person on a team who is not currently playing can only ask one question - "Can I play now?" no other comunication. The playing partner can either say "Yes" or "No". 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. (Yes, that does mean only 3 people play before the card is done instead of the normal 4). When the game ends, the total Victory points for each team is calculated and the winning team is determined. Imagine the possibilities!

[edit] Page for Errata

I can't find a page that includes a comprehensive list of all the errata to the game, whether it be cards or rules. It would be nice if there were such a page.
