Dominion General Discussion / Best expansion if you only buy one
« on: March 29, 2020, 05:49:57 pm »
I think this question has been asked before but now there's more expansions. I'm going to get an expansion for a friend who I'm guessing will probably end up with at most of two expansions. Assuming they only end up with one, which one would be best?  They said that more complicated would be better than simpler.

The ones I'm thinking of are Seaside, Prosperity, Adventures, Nocturne, Renaissance, Menagerie, or maybe Empires.
Not Intrigue, Hinterlands, or Dark Ages since they don't really add new mechanics to the game. Not Alchemy since it's small, not Cornucopia and Guilds since it only really adds Coffers.
Thoughts?

Not sure about Blacksmith's strength, also forgot to include the heirloom on the card.
In a vacuum, Blacksmith is weaker than Catacombs.
But via Blacksmith you are more likely to get the Villager via Tool.
Yet I don't think that this pushes the card from "similar to Catacombs and thus a $5" into $6 territory.
I knew it, there's often a card similar to an idea of mine that I forget. I'll have an edited version or replacement soon, along with a fixed version of tool.

Ruined Commander
Action, Ruins, Command - $0

Play an Action card from the Supply as though it were this.
What have you done

Three for Two sale
Event - $0*
Pay double the cost of the top card of any supply pile. If you did, gain 3 cards from that pile
That's actually not that bad of an idea, something like this:

Deal
$5 Project
When you gain a second copy of a non-victory card in a turn, you may gain another copy.

Sale is deliberately broken, especially in the case of split piles (gladiator and two fortunes for $6) and castles.
Deal is ok, though, to my taste, too expensive ($3-4 would be fine)
Yeah obviously as you worded it if fits this forum. Also I forgot to actually put a title.

If itís a hoax, I spent a lot of months playtesting a fake expansion. I sure hope itís real.
Dammit, Footnote! Why do you have to tease us? I assume you're not allowed to tell us anything. Maybe just one little thing?

I don't really like the wording on the cards you freeze on-gain. I don't know what changes this wording has had, but I think it would seem more intuitive if it was like, when you gain this freeze it.

Sleigh: I have other, similar cards I like more.
Tbh I don't see the logic in removing a card for this reason. Unless you're planning on publishing this as a set or something, unless there's really something wrong with a card you should keep it in.

Igloo: I'm not sure about this one, it's seemed okay in playtest games but it still feels off for some reason. What do people think?
I think it's off because you would only want one frozen since another would do nothing, I think it can pretty easily cost $3.

That's not how the Force works
$4
Storm the First Order base with no concrete plan on how to lower the shields.

Gremlin $4
Action-Attack
+1 Card
If you have 5 or fewer cards in hand (after drawing), +2 Cards. Otherwise, each other player gains a Curse.


Really hard for me to decide between $4 and $5.

Crumbling Outpost
If the previous turn was yours, then take another turn after this.

Raft $2
Action-Traveller
Trash a card from your hand.
-
When you discard this from play, you may exchange it for a Fishing Vessel.

Fishing Vessel $3*
+ $2
+1 Buy
At the start of your next turn, choose one: + $1, +1 Buy; or you may exchange it for a Cog, putting it on the bottom of your deck.
(This is not in the Supply.)






If you've already started judging by now you can ignore this, but some feedback would be nice from anyone.

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

Drunk
$4
Action-Reserve
+ $4
+2 Buys
-
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.
