I am a software engineer at Google. I like machine learning, python, and algorithms.

I am a sucker for analyzing game log data for games that I love. I run RFTGStats.com and CouncilRoom.com: Dominion Statistics.

comment What is a quick way to test or simulate card strategies for deck building games?
I've used and was reasonably happy with the python simulator 1.5 years ago, but now I think it has fallen behind and doesn't support all cards.

comment Strategies and kingdom cards for a strong opening in Dominion?
IMO, neither Treasure Map nor Coppersmith are good general openers. councilroom.com/… In 400k online games, they underperform Silver overall, Coppersmith especially so.

comment What are some fun setups for Dominion for two players?
I don't want to be too pedantic/argumenatative, but the timestamp of game completion is logged in the URL here, 191417 = 19:14:17, 191723 = 19:17:23, which means the game in question took 3 minutes and 9 seconds. Game 1 and Game 2. The combo was obvious and quick (Tactician/Bank).

If your dominion games are taking an hour each, either you haven't played enough, you are playing really slowly, or you are doing something wrong. A quick online game between experienced players can take 3 minutes.

comment In Dominion Intrigue does Bridge Stack with Itself
Goons doesn't perfectly stack with Throne Room and King's Court. The money and buys stack, but the +VP per buy do not.

comment Rewards and punishments for card games
What if the better player paid for part of your buy in? Surely if you only have to pay $1 for $5 worth of chips, you could still be playing reasonably for money and it isn't a priori a negative value game for you.

Galactic Federation is the strongest card in the base game, and it's possibly the best counter to Produce/Consume as well. Don't feel bad about losing to it.
