    My favourite/most hated strategy revolves around the brokenness of the Envoy, from Rio Grande’s Origins 2009 promo deck thingy ( This + throne room + anything giving you extra actions lets you get through your deck insanely fast. I swing between loving this (when I play it) and hating it (whenever anyone else starts playing it).

    I’m really looking forward to getting some expansions so that the old strategies get challenged. I’m probably getting Seaside in July (can’t wait to play with the Embargo), but that definitely doesn’t stop me buying other expansions…

    I tend to go the action route. My favourite combo is the Village and Throne Room, with all the extra actions you can get through most of your deck to find enough gold to buy your province.

    The Black Market card which was a promo they gave away last year at Origins is seriously broken, it allows a player to purchase cards which are not in the common playing piles. It really sucks when people are throne rooming witches and there is only one moat in the game, especially when you are not the player that possesses it.

      We grabbed the envoy and black market a while ago, envoy gets a lot of play but I often skip the black market cause it makes too much work packing up 😉 We haven’t found it too unbalanced, people who’ve played it too heavily seldom win due to the randomness of what they get to pick from… but yeah, when you get a great card noone else has, it brings a smile to the face 🙂

      Jan-Yves, looking forward to trying the throne room with the envoy – we’ve only had intrigue and seaside, Dominion arrives today so quite excited 🙂

    My most memorable game was… The one where we had the saboteur and no moat… That was the biggest trash pile we’ve ever had and the scores were 4-2-2-(-1) thanks to the witch…

    Probably going to skip Alchemy, but adding a comment anyway.

    My favourite card is Steward from the Intrigue set – very rarely lose a game when that card is in the mix.

    Black Market is a bit of a hassle to set up but i don’t agree it is broken – occasionally you can get a really handy card using it but more often than not you waste too much time and effort doing it that your oposition have a good jump on you anyway.

    I’m not that great at Dominion because I tend to play for fun rather than winning; it’s just too much fun to start chaining silly combos 😛

    My favourite aspect of Dominion is the deck building. It’s a great mechanic and one that hasn’t been overused by games (excluding CCG money sinks :P)
