Had a game with Tent + Way of the Mouse being Secret Cave. You could use Secret Cave's duration, but then also topdeck Tent, so you'd get the duration effect without the card staying in play. Fortunately it was an online game, but in an IRL game, tracking would probably be pretty tricky. This would apply to any other Duration card as Mouse, and to Merchant Camp, Walled Village, and Border Guard with Horn (the other self-topdecking cards have the self-topdecking as part of their on-play effect, which would be replaced by Mouse's effect)

weird.  seems like you shouldn't be able to top deck it with the card moved thing or something.  this is kinda huge. thanks!

Actually it seems like it be a bug, since if you played as Way of the Mouse, you wouldn't discard it from play that turn (if you used Secret Cave's duration benefit). From the wiki:

If the set-aside card is a Duration, then a card played this Way will stay out as long as that Duration would

And Tent's below the line:

When you discard this from play, you may put it onto your deck.   

Definitely a crazy one for my first co-modding experience! :)

Interesting to be on the sidelines and know everything and watch it all fall apart for scum so quickly.

I suggest reordering "a card costing up to $6 from the supply that was gained this turn" into "a card costing up to 6$ that was gained this turn from the supply"

Two points:
• I think all official cards say where to exile from so this technically would allow you to exile a card from somewhere other than the supply, no? This could probably be explained in the FAQ but is not consistent with the official cards.
• It's minor, but it is also functionally different, in that with the original of someone gains a card from the trash, you could exile a copy (from the supply); with the new wording you can't. Like I said, minor.

I think I'd suggest going with "a card from the supply costing up to $6 that was gained this turn" just reordering the "from the supply" and the "costing up to $6".

I have played with this a little, but it's extremely challenging, especially because of the issue of starting with 7 Coppers.

I do think this is the big challenge with "Ways for Treasures."

Not exactly sure how this would impact things - i.e. you'd have to see how each of the above designs would have to change for this - but what if you had to spend a Buy to go down a Path? (or some cost, but using a buy fits with it being your buy phase / treasures)

So the original gold paved road (Trash this for $1) could work since also uses a buy.

In some ways this might make them too similar to events though? (I guess the different might be that they would all refer to "this" so it would be more of a variable costing event)

not saying no to a helping hand if you want to help out :)

Sure, I can help mod if you want the help, or play if you need the extra player.

Do you need anyone else?

gg and great job eevee and vidicate!

I have no idea how we managed to win here.

I agree no more waiting for swowl, but would've preferred just guessing force here, as I'm not as convinced on staff.

I hope you're right.

I'm ok with locking in FORCE then, unless we want to let swowl with in.

While back haven't had a chance to review old clues and guesses,

but I think we liked FORCE for Mountie?

It could also be for veal, since they are forced to live in tiny spaces.

Sure: BABY

I'd say we can lock in COW too.

I am back now, i think - so should be able to be more active. Again. apologies that I misjudged how much time I would have while traveling. (I'm usually traveling for work, where it is easy (and fun) to find some time for this. Vacation travel - especially when it's a honeymoon! - is clearly different!)

Sorry i haven't been able to post. Thought I'd have more time this week (traveling). But i have been reading and ok with the guesses (maybe would've gone reindeer first, but really wouldn't have made a difference).

I'll be back next week and back to bring more active.

Man we have a long climb here.

So clearly MESS. After that maybe something like cat or cow? Plus our other clues... So back to reindeer, igloo, hide, etc.

I'd start with MESS -> REINDEER

Also, I will be very busy this weekend. I'll try to check in, but mostly just to vote as needed (no room for much more analysis). And if you don't hear from me within some reasonable time, feel free to guess without me.


I'm not sure this would qualify, as this card itself can't be replayed (by itself). At least, as i understand this week's rules.

I would be willing to try, but not until some time in July.

Reindeer are definitely native to Finland.

I still prefer Bear before Igloo, maybe Swowl can break the tie.

OK, the easy one is THIEF. Probably HIDE? Not sure on a 3rd, but we can also go back to Mountie for
Bear as 2nd or 3rd guess.

I'm happy with SMUGGLER -> BEAR next, if vidicate agrees, they can lock it in.

I'd suggest closing "season 4" first. So let Fan mechanics run 1-2 more weeks* first, then take the hiatus there.

* Seasons 1 and 2 were 10 contests each, season 3 was 12, so season 4 has so far run 8 contests. So either have 41 be the finale or do 1 more and 42 be the finale.

Agree with the top list.

clearly can't be: MAPLE, REINDEER, BEAR, IGLOO, because then clue could just be Canada

So I like MAPLE FIRST, then SMUGGLER... then not sure which two i the other three. I might even put FORCE up a little higer, as in "Police Force".

What about just:

If this would make you shuffle...

Though I know we went away from "would" with Trader, it's still used on some other cards.

@faust, when are you getting married? Congratulations! I am also having a wedding in late June! :)

On to my entry:

From when the contest started, it was clear that combinations could become very strong, so the way to temper is to make sure you can only with weak cards - what weak card can we make available in every game? Ruins!

I wasn't sure how exactly to best make this work until I saw Way of the Buffalo, above. I hope this entry is different enough, I think it is, since it's only the same when the top ruin is Ruined Village.

So basically, you can sacrifice a play of your Action card in order to make that copy a little stronger for the future. And it should be fun to figure out which of your action cards pairs best with the top Ruin.

Way of the Vulture - Way-Looter
Combine this with a Ruins from the Supply.
