Here are the card sets from this year's Dominion tournament at Dexcon. (Which I won.) I'm interested in how other people would have played them. (I didn't record the kingdom in the qualifying round, but could probably recall most of it if anybody cares; it was all-Intrigue. (Great Hall?, Masquerade, Shanty Town, Wishing Well, Bridge, Coppersmith, Duke, Torturer, Tribute, Harem.))

They were not fully random; the organizers at least filtered them for interestingness, and I believe the finals set was actually constructed, or at least adjusted from a random set.

Card texts behind a cut, because some of you don't care.

All games are four players.

I'll explain how I played and why in the comments, if anybody wants me to.


Semifinals:

Lighthouse
Action – Duration
$2
+1 Action
Now and at the start of your next turn: +$1.
While this is in play, when another player plays an Attack card, it doesn’t affect you.

Ambassador
Action – Attack
$3
Reveal a card from your hand. Return up to 2 copies of it from your hand to the Supply. Then each other player gains a copy of it.

Great Hall
Action – Victory
$3
1 Victory Point
+1 Card; +1 Action.

Smugglers
Action
$3
Gain a copy of a card costing up to $6 that the player to your right gained on his last turn.

Baron
Action
$4
+1 Buy
You may discard an Estate card. If you do, +$4. Otherwise, gain an Estate card.

Mining Village
Action
$4
+1 Card; +2 Actions
You may trash this card immediately. If you do, +$2.

Island
Action – Victory
$4
Set aside this and another card from your hand. Return them to your deck at the end of the game.
Worth 2 Victory Points

Torturer
Action – Attack $5
+3 Cards
Each other player chooses one: he discards 2 cards; or he gains a Curse card, putting it in his hand.

Wharf
Action – Duration
$5
Now and at the start of your next turn: +2 Cards; +1 Buy.

Nobles
Action – Victory
$6
2 Victory Points
Choose one: +3 Cards; or +2 Actions.

How do you plan to play on a 3-4 start? How about a 5-2?

If the first player buys a Torturer, does this affect your plan?

(I had a 5-2 in fourth seat.)



Finals:

Interestingly, there were three cards in common with last year's finals. (Tunnel, Margrave, and Spice Merchant.)

Colony and Platinum were in the game

Herbalist
Action
$2
+1 Buy; +$1
When you discard this from play, you may put one of your Treasures from play on top of your deck.

Fortune Teller
Action – Attack
$3
+$2
Each other player reveals cards from the top of his deck until he reveals a Victory or Curse card. He puts it on top and discards the other revealed cards.

Tunnel
Victory – Reaction
$3
2 Victory Points


When you discard this other than during a Clean-up phase, you may reveal it. If you do, gain a Gold.

Watchtower
Action – Reaction
$3
Draw until you have 6 cards in hand.
When you gain a card, you may reveal this from your hand. If you do, either trash that card, or put it on top of your deck.

Horse Traders
Action – Reaction
$4
+1 Buy; +$3; Discard 2 cards.
When another player plays an Attack card, you may set this aside from your hand. If you do, then at the start of your next turn, +1 Card and return this to your hand.

While this is in play, when you buy a card, +1 VP token.

Once again, how do you plan to play on a 3-4 or a 5-2?

(I had a 3-4, and went first.)
