Do you think we are missing an alternative of dominion or a related project?
An easy to use Dominion simulator! It allows you to test competing strategies and see what works best.
import Dominion import Dominion.Strategies main = dominion ["adit" `uses` bigMoney, "maggie" `uses` bigMoneySmithy]
Or you can pass in options:
players = ["adit" `uses` bigMoney, "maggie" `uses` bigMoneySmithy] main = dominionWithOpts [Log True, Iterations 1] players
Here's a simple strategy, the "big money" strategy:
bigMoney playerId = playerId `buysByPreference` [province, gold, duchy, silver, copper]
The big money strategy is simple: buy the most expensive victory or treasure card you can, and repeat.
bigMoneySmithy playerId = do playerId `plays` smithy playerId `buysByPreference` [province, gold, duchy, smithy, silver, copper]
It's just like big money, except now the player buys up smithys too. And the player plays a smithy whenever possible. So now we can compare Big Money vs Big Money + Smithy. And the results are:
Out of 5000 games:
player adit won 1867 times using "big money" player maggie won 3133 times using "big money + smithy"
Just as a control, lets use the same strategy with both players:
player adit won 2444 times player maggie won 2556 times
So clearly, adding the smithy to big money makes a big difference!
Some action cards have a followup action. For example, if you use throne room, you can pick another card and play it twice. Here's how that looks:
throneRoom playerId = do playerId `plays` throneRoom `with` (ThroneRoom market)
And of course you can play throne room on throne room:
multiThroneRoom playerId = do playerId `plays` throneRoom `with` (ThroneRoom throneRoom) `withMulti` [ThroneRoom market, ThroneRoom market]
