comment Citadels: Does the crown switch hands if the king is killed?
I am not sure it would be so bad >2p. Be King, take Assassin, kill King will get dominated by someone with free reign over Merchant.

comment Does mixing Dominion expansions lessen the power of card combinations in random kingdom setups?
@TheChaz: There are two things to consider. 1. The raw number of combos across all kingdom sets. Of course this goes up as you add more cards and cards from different sets. 2. The probability that a given card will be in a viable. This tends to go down as you add cards from different sets, or equivalently, up as you add more cards from its own set.

comment Can you buy with a copper after buying Grand Market?
Another sort of exception is with Mint. If you get $11 with two buys, you can buy a Mint, trash the coppers in play, and then buy a Grand Market.

comment Should I trash Copper or Silver with Mine?
With thief in play, if you upgrade copper -> silver, you throw away a rare opportunity for your opponent to help your deck (by trashing your coppper).

comment Should I trash Copper or Silver with Mine?
In Dominion, you almost always want a more varied money distribution. The desire for a 5-2 split, a before second shuffle gold, and the steep utility increase from 4 to 5, and from 5 to 6 are more evidence. Further, the Tactician card even gains from this idea.

revised If I put a copper and add 4 more random cards into my hand from my starting deck, does it change the odds of getting the 5:2 split?

comment Is Saboteur better in a 4-player game than a 2-player game?
If anyone wants, I can give you shell access to the councilroom machine to do analysis. I am personally convinced based on the player scale invariance argument (and subsequent lack of refutation of that point) on BGG.

comment Dominion - Saboteur use
I am very skeptical that the effectiveness of saboteur increases with the number of players. I've gotten into the argument before on BGG here, boardgamegeek.com/article/6879886#6879886

comment Using Saboteur after Bridge in Dominion
Note that Bridge changes costs for both 'on destroy' and 'on gain', so the effect is neutral with respect to Saboteur, there is no real combo. Players can still turn their Provinces instead Golds. But they do skip the $3s.
