      are you trying to unlock it or are you upset about it not appearing in the shop often enough? it got a rarity bump in the last patch so it's rare now

          it's easy to get up to those big scores consistently if you build for retriggers instead of relying on op jokers. try to turn as much of your deck as possible into kings of hearts, buff them into lucky and steel cards and pick up the following jokers along the way:

          >hanging chad
          >smiley face
          >photograph
          these are all commons so they practically appear every run

          you'll also be looking for
          >mime (and/or baron)
          >sock and buskin (and/or triboulet)
          >bloodstone
          the first options are uncommon, so you might not end up seeing them, but that's okay. you only need one of these to pop off. if you find mime, you're going to want to go for a high card build with lots of steel. the other two are better for 4/5 card builds and a mix of lucky and steel.

          if you play into this build with the ghost deck, you should be able to do it on your first run as long as you don't run into the plant boss. you might even reach scientific notations for the first time if you get some of the rarer options or good spectral cards.

          actually, I won most of my gold stakes with just hanging chad (and 1 or 2 of the other cards) as my joker skeleton. hanging chad is extremely overpowered on this patch

            I've been trying with plasma deck. Is the possibility of cryptid cards worth losing the plasma chips?

              cryptid cards are a good facilitator for sure, as are purple/blue seals and deck thinning for consistency with immolate. but the main benefit of playing the ghost deck is that you can put red seals on your kings (or other card of choice)

              >5 steel cards in hand triggering once = 1.5^5 = 7.59x score multiplier
              >5 red seal steel cards in hand triggering twice = 1.5^10 = 57.66x score multiplier
              >5 red seal steel cards in hand triggering twice, twice (with mime or baron) = 1.5^20 = 3325.26x score multiplier
              this is why retriggers are the solution to getting stuck in endless early. if done right, they add another scaling dimension above xmult

    I like how they made it so you can see the code even if i dont understand any of it

      it's a great tool if you want to learn how to code. nothing in the core game is that complicated once you know the basics, the tricky stuff is the UI/UX

      that's pretty much what I did on that last run. That mime card goes hard.

      It was always garbage and a pure RNG fest dressed up to trick morons into thinking it was a skill game.
      Now that the shills have gone, it has been revealed that no one was actually enjoying it in earnest.

        I still enjoy playing it. Even today I had a fun run of it today. Can even say there's some skill since my win-rate definitely shot up after figuring a bunch of stuff out.

        You seem to be struggling with the simple concept of there not being much to talk about the game now since it's been out for awhile and it's all old hat now.

          It's a pretty interesting game, just one that can only be enjoyed in bursts.

          I'm more annoyed at literally NEVER finding a Black Hole card. 44 fricking hours I've been playing the game and still never found one. Not once.

          It's very fun, I just played enough of it. Unlocked every deck and perfected two decks. Haven't touched it in over a month. I don't think that means that the 60 or so hours I did put in were fake fun. I'd still recommend others get it, for sure.

          >3 shills flood in and post back to back to defend the game
          yeah... super convincing and totally organic posts, guys.

          get more money builds and buy more packs, or the deck that gives you double tags, use that on a spectral/arcana pack

          I don't know why, but I enjoy the process of unlocking things in all those roguelites more than actual gameplay. As soon as I unlock what I want I lose the interest.
          Also is checkered deck the easy mode?

          until harder stakes, yes

          who is this game made for? it looks so fricking boring

          it's fun

          >Doing the challenges
          >Stuck on golden needle
          How the FRICK are you meant to do this shit?
