No name
Action $4
Reveal your hand. The player to your left chooses one. Choose one: trash it and gain a card costing up to $2 more than it and you may trash a card from your hand; or gain a copy of it; or each other player gains a copy of it.

Edit: added to the first option

+ $4

When you gain this, put it on your Tavern mat. When another player discards a Drunk from their Tavern mat, you may discard this from your Tavern mat.

Probably won't have an entry this week, but in my dream last night I thought of having a Chicken card that gains you eggs, and the Egg card was something like +1 card +1 action +$1 discard a card. Also I think there was some kind of reserve clause on it to but I couldn't read it.

Runner up: Bartender by fly-eagles-fly
Thanks a lot! Definitely imo wasn't going to be a winner, pubby's and others were too good. I really liked a bunch of these.

No entry from me,  I want to see Bartender win, why jeopardize that
Well thanks, though the turn order thing might ruin it. I'll try to think of some way to fix that.

A weird idea off the top of my head. Not sure how well this would work, also really not sure about the theme.


Would you be open to a couple tweaks?

Yes always. I'll post 2.0 shortly.

Very interesting. Though you want semicolons instead of commas.

Here's a simple card inspired by some of the rotating cards in Agricola. (NOTE: it is an heirloom, not a supply pile)


Why doesn't Research just say "the player to your left may..."?
I would guess it's because if they don't, the next player may then choose to.

You get all the tokens you need but your opponent decides where.
This seems cool, but extremely weak.

Pub seemed really weak, changed its cost to $3. On second thought, maybe I could've made it +3 Cards.

Knighting 2.0

Anyone think it works better thematically as Coronation? It at least looks better to me. Anyway twi changes here, plus wording changes. Only works once per turn and you have to trash at least $6 worth of cards.
I'll add Seat of Honor here later, changed quite a bit.
Seat of Honor 2.0:

When any player plays a card from a pile you have the randomizer of, +2 VP.
---
Setup: players each player in turn order takes a randomizer card corresponding to a Supply pile. When each player has taken a card, each player takes another card in reverse order. Repeat until each supply pile's randomizer had been taken.

I'm sure someone could do a better job of making a card with this theme, maybe there have been some, but here's one take.

Neat, though it might require some rewording so it's not broken when Knights are in the kingdom.

Has anyone messed around with global effects that happen when a card is in the trash? This probably isn't the best idea, but here's a rough example:



The overall concept seems interesting but tough to balance. Anyone have any other card ideas like this?
I really like this idea, I might steal this concept :) . Though it's a bit difficult to work around the fact that this card is almost useless without trashing, though the +1 buy here counters it pretty well.

Does anyone think the Hall of Fame on the forum should be updated, even though we do have the trello, which is amazing btw?

First try at a prize gainer:


Quote

more quibbly feedback: equal to exactly, or equal to or greater than? if it's the former, pricing this at $3 gives the second (hit $8) and third (hit $6) prize winners maybe a little bit of an advantage?.
Not quite sure what you're saying here... but I think this needs some tweaking, glad you like the idea.

Does the first person need to trash exactly $10 worth of cards, or greater than or equal to $10 worth of cards? If it's exact, that makes this maybe a little harder to play in Potion/Debt games.


Assuming the players mirror eachother as much as possible, the first player may have a slight advantage getting their second prize (the third prize of the pile) because they can trash their Knighting and a Silver (or other $3 card); the fourth prize in the pile will have to be via two $2 or a $4 and a $0 - can't use the Knighting unless Shelters or Poor House are a thing.
I see, you're talking about players trashing their Knighting (since it's a purposefully weak card) when they buy their second. In light of that, which I definitely already thought about as something players might do before you brought it up :P, I'll change it to exactly or greater.

Coffers but with potions.

I agree with GendoIkari, Borough and Burglar are strictly better (or close) than Festival and Baker respectively. I think they might be fine if they cost $6, but that might not be enough.

I feel like in general, people are making their prizes way too powerful. Keep in mind the current prizes. Princess gives you +buy and -2 cost (can't be throned). It's good, but not an amazingly powerful card. Bag of gold gives a gold on top of your deck. Nice, but again not game-changing. Trusty steed and followers are great (probably worth $7 or more) but they don't absolutely break the game.

Seat of honor can be better than kings court. You can TR 2 cards then top deck seat of honor to do it again next turn.

Prizes are supposed to be good, but they're not supposed to be crazy. Before any of you defend these cards just think; are there really that many situations that you would take a bag of gold, princess, amulet, or even trusty steed over these cards? And would they have the same effect? These cards are not only so good, they can work in almost any situation (unlike followers, which works better if there's no cursing or trashing, but not so good otherwise, or princess which is much better when there's no +buy).
Thanks, this was really helpful. For now, I'm going to change SoH to this:

Quote
Do this up to two times: play an action card from your hand twice. You may put any cards played with this onto your deck when you discard them from play.
(This is not in the Supply.)
Changes the order to a simple throned throne, and only schemes the played cards. I will probably change it further, maybe take out the scheming, or take out doing it twice. Thoughts?
