Do I need to make it through a certain number of bot games before I can join a room?

I am roo. (Also, the player behind this avatar is blonder than she appears. Sheesh.)

Try clicking on the "multiplayer" button on the main screen, and then choose a room from the drop-down on the upper right? I have been able to enter rooms, though I am too shy to play with strangers. (Strangers with candy!) I played one straight-up bot game and have also been working my way through the tutorial adventures but haven't completed the boss fight, so I'm thinking that completing the tutorials is not a requirement.

The game rendition is beautiful but the site navigation and help/guidance could use some work.

I am convinced that they make the AI stupider every time I lose. I need a strategy that isn't Big Money.

Have you tried playing the tutorial thread? (The first couple of games are super-dumb because of the limited card selection, but it does get better.) What is really funny is that the Tutor What's-His-Name is dumber than dirt; he just keeps buying estates and losing every time. Until the boss game, when he suddenly grows a genius brain. He had like a 25 card chain in one particular hand.

I am hopeful that I can beat Suddenly Genius Tutor Guy once I've had time to replay the boss fight a few times.

I've been trying a few games, and I managed to beat the tutorial, but the regular bots all wipe the floor with me. Yeesh. I also make some pretty stupid mistakes--more than once I thought I was clicking on action cards to play them, when really I was clicking on things to discard because the bot played a Militia. (D'oh!)

The nice thing is, the games all go really fast, so maybe I can knock off some of my rough edges by Wednesday.

I repeatedly treat the moneylender like the mine: I play it, then I waste the 3 points it gains me by grabbing a silver BEFORE playing my treasure cards (thinking I'm going to bring it into my hand). Noooo! I wanted the Market! Do overs!
