Title says it all. While it was a lot of fun, Fist Full of Donuts was utterly devoured by a villains team. While playing against @Of_Dice_And_Men he fielded a very efficient Villains team. Captain Cold, Black Manta, and Cheetah were especially efficient. While discussing Diablo names, @Of_Dice_And_Men mentioned that one German randomized name was Stinkfaul der kalte (ultra lazy the cold is the rough translation, literal translation is stink lazy the cold). I continued to call Captain Cold Stinkfaul der kalte, because he just sat there and slowed me down. Very effecient, like a German engineered donut eating party.
I was a bit nervous to invite @Of_Dice_And_Men over to our temporary apartment. I’m not really clued into social nuance. However, @Of_Dice_And_Men knocked it out of the park with bringing cat treats for Kalle (der Kralle -the claw) and Nomi. He also brought some tasty craft beer. 10 of 10, hope he comes to play again.
So here is where I think my deck went wrong, and I think this might help for strategy in any limited collection.
- Use what you have, the closer you get to 20 dice in a team the better
- Have a midgame stragegy. One can’t go from early game straight into late game.
- Removal and ramp are very important
My first game I tried to attack as much as possible as quickly as possible. That dried up way too quickly partly because I couldn’t field and buy dice constantly. I had only 14 dice out of 20. I also had no 4 drops. I consistently was missing a four purchase character, and as soon as there was one or two villains on the board, I was hosed. I also didn’t have a response to a Joker making it impossible to field Hulk. Removal or ramp would’ve fixed this I think.
That being said, Fist Full of Donuts is no more! Now I have made Super Donuts!
