Wanted to share an image of 2000 pieces puzzle I finished on quarantine, because I think it is most awesome



That just looks like one piece, not 2000.

That's what puzzles look like when they're completed.

Nighthawk was referring to the F-177 Nighthawk although I figured it might be fine even if the reference was missed.

What happens to Black Market cards?

They get returned to the supply, just like Farmers' Market cards.

Here's an actually passable card idea:

Mask - $2
Action
You may pass this to the player on your left.

But did you really want a free Cavalry? It's strictly worse than Sleigh unless you're trashing it for some benefit.

Such as the + from Bounty Hunter.

I will use 20 (of my original 30) Curses (btw can I play a 5 or 6 player game with only 30 curses?)

According to the rules, you would need 50 Curses and 18 Provinces to play a 6-player game, but Dominion gets increasingly slow and chaotic the more players you have anyway, and that's the reason why the base game only supports up to 4 players it's just not that great to play with more than 4. However, if you choose to do it anyway, I'm sure you'll be fine even if you use the wrong number of cards.

Hi GendoIkari,

thank you SO much for clarifying. I think I might be able to play after all. Those are the two sets I bought:

I bought the second edition that is not a standalone version anymore. The "base pack" contains exactly those seven card types you mentioned.

The expansion as 7 cards from the "basic version" and 7 cards from "intrigue".  I guess that means all I have to do is choose 10 out of those 14 (randomly?) to play with?!
Im a bit confused because all the examples for a game setup include cards that I dont have.
Is it possible that those 10 cards might be way to complicated to play as beginners or should we be fine after a few rounds?

Sorry for asking so many dummy questions, but it seems like Im in a pretty unique position.

Okay, so what you bought is the update pack for base game and Intrigue, which only has the new cards that were introduced in the 2nd edition printings. It was intended for people who already owned the 1st editions and wanted the new cards without having to buy the full game a second time.

In principle, you can play games with those cards by choosing 10 random cards out of the 14, but it can be a weird experience and you might get bored of it pretty soon since you'll be seeing a lot of the same cards every game. You might want to buy another expansion such as Seaside to go with it, that should make it more balanced and also give it more variety.

February
Event
Look through your hand. You may play an Action card from it.

April
Event
Look through your deck. You may play an Action card from it.
February would actually be a pretty decent event, depending on which Actions you had in your hand, especially with extra buys

Return to Action phase would be nice too.  Not being able to play any more treasures would otherwise limit the use case.

There's a reason it's called really bad card ideas

Is Toil really that bad?

Toil gives +1 buy. Anyway, I don't get it. What's the joke with the month names?

Menagerie has an event called "March" as the verb, but Awaclus chose to interpret it as the month

And it costs .
