Rules Questions / Trashing and Priest
« on: August 14, 2022, 06:21:04 pm »
I bought Innovation.

When I trash a Catacombs to gain and play a Priest, do I get $4?

Rules Questions / Donate "first"
« on: July 21, 2022, 09:40:57 am »
Now Donate tells us to resolve its Durative effect first.

Haunted Woods and Swamp Hug tell us to end its Attack at the start of our next turn (before desiding which Durative effect to resolve first).

Which one wins? I assume Haunted  Woods win and SECOND we resolve Donate.

Rules Questions / Treasury and Cavalry
« on: June 30, 2022, 06:14:28 am »
One Japanese player told me.

play 5 Treasuries
buy and gain a Cavalry
topdeck those Treasuries
play them again
play Cavalry as Horse

infinite coins

Is it a correct behavior?

Rules Questions / Overpay 2022
« on: June 27, 2022, 11:06:31 pm »
Now Stonemason has a different wording.
Do we overpay BEFORE gaining or AFTER?

This matters when we use Basilica or "Priest and Watchtower" (before overpaying, trash Stonemason to overpay more).

Rules Questions / Emissary and Stash
« on: June 07, 2022, 10:39:41 am »
My deck is empty. My discard pile has nothing but a Stash.
I play Emissary.
I topdeck that Stash.
Did I shuffle?

(2) I topdeck that Stash with Star Chart. Did I shuffle?

I assume both Emissaries give me +1 Action and +2 Favors, but I am not sure.

Rules Questions / War Chest
« on: May 31, 2022, 12:12:13 pm »
2-players game. It's my turn.
I play a Witch.
Alice plays a Sheepdog and a Vassal (Way of the Mouse).
She discards and plays a Crown.
She plays a War Chest from her hand.

Q1. Do I contraband, or does she?

Duchy is banned.
After that, I play another War Chest from my hand.

Q2. Can I gain Duchy if she names another named card?

Rules Questions / Blockade
« on: May 16, 2022, 03:25:56 am »
Do 2 Blockades give my opponent 29 Curses if I gain a Garden and a Curse and they gain a Garden on their turn?

Rules Questions / Inn and Gatekeeper
« on: May 03, 2022, 07:05:21 pm »
(1) My opponent has played Gatekeeper.
I have an Inn in discard. I gain another.

(a)  I reveal it and shuffle my deck. Nothing will happen.
(b)  I reveal that Inn, shuffle my deck, and Exile what I've gained.

Are both correct?

(c)  I play a Sheepdog as Vassal (using Way), play a discarded Scavenger, and topdeck a Copper. (He doesn't know.) Can I deny Exiling? (Has he lost track?)

Rules Questions / Lich skipping
« on: March 11, 2022, 08:34:16 pm »
What does "skip" mean?

Ex. Alice, Bob, and Cathy are in table.
T1: Alice played Lich.
Bob and Cathy played their turn.

1. Cathy says "Bob, it's your turn."
2. Cathy says "Alice, it's your turn. Oh, you played Lich. Skip your Action, Buy, Night, and Clean-up phase."

This matters when Bob plays a Smuggler. Does he gain something what Alice gained on T1?

Weekly Design Contest / Weekly Design Contest #128: Look at the trash!
« on: September 09, 2021, 08:29:36 pm »
Design a card or a landscape that refers to cards in the trash.

I do like Trash-for-Benefits like Graverobbers and Salvager. Let's enjoy trashing!

Your card has to look at the trash; gaining from it, counting Treasures in it, playing a card in it (leaving there), or a kind of thing is accepted.

Official cards that would qualify include:

Official cards that would not qualify include:
Swindler (it just cares the cost of the trashed card),
Treasure Map (it just cares what you trash),
Possession (it doesn't use the trash)

Rules Questions / cost reduction
« on: December 01, 2020, 09:08:13 pm »
Aki played Highway as Lighthouse (Way of the Mouse) on her last turn.  I have $7.

Can I buy a Province?  (Does Province cost $7 or $8?)

Rules Questions / buy a card
« on: October 01, 2020, 08:20:02 pm »
When do we pay card costs?  For example, when ...
a Haggler is in-play,
I bought Innovation,
I earned $8,
I buy a Fortune,
I gain a Black Market, playing immediately,

can I buy the revealed King's Castle, spending what coin I have, fail to pay $8 (Fortune), and take 8 debts?  The answer will definitely be no, but nobody has denied the paying is one of the on-buy effects.

Another case:
a Haggler is in-play,
I bought Innovation,
I earned $4,
I buy a Herald,
I gain a Vassal, playing immediately,

can I overpay $2?

Game #53179837.

Revealing a Silver.
Revealing a Silver.
Revealing a Hoard.

Is there anyone who can interpret this nightmare?

Rules Questions / Multiple reaction
« on: July 16, 2020, 11:40:51 pm »
I bought and gained a Mill.
Aki, my left player, has a Falconer in hand.
Sally, my right player, has a Black Cat in hand.
There are only 2 Curses left.

Who can react first?
Aki, or Sally, or I choose which my daughters to win (Aki is going to gain a Black Cat)?

ADD: I think Aki can react first, but maybe, I have to say which effect - gaining a Victory or gaining a multityped card - is to resolve first. Nobody has asked what to do with different types of reaction of the same timing, I guess.

Rules Questions / Lost in the Woods twice
« on: May 22, 2020, 07:58:40 pm »
Quoted from this post:

At the start of my turn, I received The Earth's Gift from Lost in the Woods. I gained an Estate.
My opponent Fuyu played Black Cat and Fool (Way of the Mouse).
She took Lost in the Woods.
She reshuffled the Boon's pile, and received The Earth's Gift. She gained another Estate.
I played Black Cat and Fool (Way of the Mouse).
I took Lost in the Woods.

Can I receive another Boon from Lost in the Woods?

Solo Challenges / Another infinite loop
« on: April 06, 2020, 12:12:05 pm »
Create an infinite loop with 4 Kingdom cards and a Landscape, or less.

You played 3 Captains to play Inventors with +1 Buy token as Way of the Horse on the previous turn.
Your deck is empty. You have 2 Captains and an Inventor in hand.
Play 3 Inventors to gain 3 Inventors.
Play 2 Inventors as Way of the Horse to draw all.
Play Captain to play King's Court
- play Captain to play Inventor to gain Captain
- play Captain (Way of the Horse)
- play Captain to play King's Court

Rules Questions / may look
« on: November 04, 2019, 10:21:54 pm »
Native Village has "you may look at any time" in its text, while Haven doesn't. But I can look at the set asided card(s) at any time. What is the difference? Is it a Constitution of Dominion?

Rules Questions / Tormentor
« on: October 23, 2019, 10:53:40 pm »
+1 Action token on Tormentor
I played a Tormentor.
I played another.

1. Do I gain an Imp? Or hex other players?
2. How about playing Tormentor via Overlord?

Rules Questions / Time to lose money
« on: March 03, 2019, 11:10:21 am »
Do I lose my coins before the Night phase? This matters when I play Storyteller which I gained via Vampire and set asided via Innovation.

I read a fan-card thread, and got wondering.

Rules Questions / playing trashed inherited Estate
« on: January 31, 2019, 10:50:29 am »
I remembered another old question when I was reading Sauna&Innovation topic.

On my previous turn, I played Ghost to reveal my inherited Estate. On this turn, I played it as Experiment. It moved to the Supply. I tried to play again, but failed. I had Conspirator in my hand. I played it.

Do I draw a card?

(I remember that Donald said I failed to play plain Estate, so I did not play a second Action. Is this interpretation correct? When I first asked, this was not a problem since we didn't have Ghost.)

Rules Questions / Innovation and Haggler
« on: January 11, 2019, 09:52:50 pm »
I bought Innovation.

While a Haggler is in play, I bought Province. I gained and set aside another Haggler. I played it.

Do I gain another card cheaper than Province?

Solo Challenges / Win without reshuffling.
« on: December 07, 2018, 11:19:50 pm »
End a game without any shuffle after drawing your first hand.

Dominion Articles / Guildhall and Masterpiece
« on: November 19, 2018, 02:55:48 am »
Open Silver-Silver. Buy Guildhall when you first earn $5. After that, buy 2 Masterpieces, overpaying as much as possible. You'll get a full refund even if you use up your Coffers.

See here for Guildhall&Begger article.

Rules Questions / Capitalism and Black Market
« on: November 14, 2018, 08:34:17 am »
Maybe someone has asked, but I am not sure.

From Prosperity rulebook:
During the Buy phase, a player must play all of the Treasures he wishes to play before he buys any cards, even if he has +Buys; he cannot play more Treasures after Buying a card.

Magically buying a card during the treasure-playing portion via Black Market doesn't stop you from playing more treasures afterwards.

I don't see the reason. I think this problem is similar to this one.

You can't buy cards from the Black Market on a Mission turn. "Can't" wins.

Maybe prohibiting another playing makes another problem like...

I Crowned Venture to reveal Black Market. I bought Grand Market. Do I resolve Venture again?

Variants and Fan Cards / Inheritance fix
« on: September 21, 2018, 09:47:47 am »
Read this thread.

I've found an undefined behavior on
I played Throne Room to play a inherited Estate(Crown), to play Herald, to reveal and play University, gained Mandarin (topdecked that inherited Estate), played Herald (second time), drew the Estate, revealed and played Ambassador, returned the Estate, and played it (second time) AS THE CARD MY OPPONENT HAD INHERITED.
(This is the summary of this twitter post.)

In short, the original Inheritance has problems. Is the following clause fix them?

Once per game: Gain an Action costing up to $4, setting aside. Put your Estate token on it.
In games using this, Estate is also an Action whose text is "Play the Action your Estate token is on, leaving it there".

Edit: Added "up to $4" clause.
