I think the main problem with treason is forcing people to show their hand constantly. It would be better as an event, I think. And yeah, better if it doesnít stack.

I saw! Itís interesting that they are adding natural disasters to the civ game with the most expensive workers. Thatís... a bold decision, but I am hopeful.

The new mechanics of this expansion are a bit unclear too. There are natural disasters, climate change, mild terraforming (canals, tunnels), new energy sources, the return of the UN and diplomatic victory, and an expanded future tech era?

Right now I donít have enough free time to get back into civ, hopefully when we get the complete edition with a discount!

Is a trichromatic triangle a triangle whose 3 corners have different colours, or one in which the sides of the triangle contain all 3 colours?

The ďeither wayĒ in grimoire is weird. Can you reverse the order of the commands so that itís not necessary? If going with the second Barbarian, I would just make it ďIf you have achieved at least three FeatsĒ, and limit it to 5 cards or more. Sounds too scary otherwise.

I like the cards though!

Does it interact with Coppersmith?

The general idea is good. But as Fly said, Attack is bit too Kingdom dependent. Which isn't a problem if there are several maps and you randomize them-
I also think that "no cards in deck or discard pile" condition needs a timing element; otherwise this is fulfilled at the start of the game (empty discard) as well as at the start of turn 2 (empty deck).

Pretty sure itís supposed to be a ďnorĒ.

Looks fun in principle though!

I am surprised painter and architect didnít make it. Hey, almost bingo too, I guess.

Boardgames just donít move that much money. I donít think Donald is starving though.

It does not seem like the moderator wants us to make any further action about this, and in fact wishes the situation hadn't spread over here. As far as I am concerned, that should be the end of it.

On the other hand, if Awaclus is presenting himself as an "ambassador" (or whatever) of f.ds mafia, that is a problem that should be dealt with.

I mean, if we are getting to that point, the question is, how do you define ďsin(x)Ē?

I donít notice much difference for Sanctuary, but I agree with Eagles that Maze looks a lot better now that the focus of the image is on the maze itself.

I think in terms of raw quality, seasons 1 and 2 were the best. But I'm super entertained by the storylines of season 5. I was a little disappointed by the way the start of season 2 answered so many things. Season 1 had a large number of questions (Who had been on the island before? Why was there a polar bear? How are there man-made things like giant hatches in the ground?) which were all answered at the same time with "scientists once used this island as a place to run their programs and conduct experiments". It just felt like a lot of the initial mystery was gone (though quickly replaced with new mystery).

I donít think the polar bear was ever explained. ďScientists!Ē Is not an explanation. It might explain a colony of monkeys or some other lab animal, but not a polar bear in a tropical climate, years after the scientists left, especially if they donít explain what experiment would require a frigginí polar bear in the first place!

I don't think this is a spoiler, but just to make sure in response to the "terrible ending": The terrible ending didn't make the whole season suck, just half of the 6th (last) season, its side storyline. Even in the finale the rest of the main storyline was amazing and tense throughout.

The problem isn't just that ending that pretty much invalidates most of the last season. It's that all the time spent over that storyline is time not spent resolving the thousands of dangling plot points from previous seasons. Though it slowly became apparent a few seasons before the end that the series wasn't interesting in those, so it's not like it came like a huge surprise by then. Still, that's why I felt like I would have preferred never starting the show.

I understand why he didnít spoiler it, but agree with Jimmmmm that he should have.

I found Lost addicting while I was watching it, but by the time I saw the finale, I regretted ever starting the show. I had heard it was ultimately disappointing, but didnít expect it to be so bad. Some people that donít care about the same things I do in a TV series loved it though, so YMMV (I think Robz is a pretty vocal defender of the series).

Rules Questions / Re: Should Prince be a Duration?
« on: October 06, 2018, 07:38:36 pm »
I am not sure it would have better wording as a Duration, or at least I canít come up with one.

Set aside a card from your hand. At the start of each of your turns for the rest of the game: play the set aside card, leaving it set aside.

It's different in a few different minor ways, but it's way less wordy.

I think itís different in some major ways here, and to avoid problems you need to go into wordier solutions.

Man,and I didnít say Sewers because I thought it was in Empires (I donít have that expansion).

Now we wait for the full card list!

22
Innovation + Distant Lands sounds good.

If you use Rats to trash with Sewers, you will be left with two Rats in your deck, at best. Unless you finish the Rats pile. On the other hand, any card that trashes two cards from your hand is promoted to Chapel with Sewers.

Silos combos with Counting House and Settlers. Itís good to see those two get some love.

Citadel is going to be crazy with cards that play other cards, or with ways to start your turn with extra actions. If you use it to double a village, it isnít that hot.

And I have a feeling Star Chart could cost 5$ and it would still be bought in most games.

23
Flag bearer is my favourite art until now :p

I have trouble seeing how good Treasurer is:

The first option is a slightly better Moneylender, which isn't bad but isn't worth 5$. The second option is really good if there's Trash-for-Benefit (etc), but not all games have that, and then it's pretty useless. Which leaves the last option, which is comparable to Merchant Ship if you keep the Key for one turn, gets better if you keep it any longer, but is underwhelming if it's taken away from you before then.

I guess in games without TfB, all players buy one just to prevent someone from keeping the Key all game long.

Man, flag is another one that I should have seen coming.

In other name-density news, we now got Treasure Chest to go with Treasure Map, and Treasurer to go with Treasury.

Maybe the next Dominion expansion is Dominion: In Space, to avoid this problem.

Some plausible future card names that would be doublets of existing cards: Peon, Money, State, Esquire, Eremite, Fief, Fee

Less likely ones: Bench, Fabric, Place, Guy, Wit, Fjord

Using such similar words might eventually cause translation difficulties, if that hasn't already happened.

Duchy and ducat are the same word in Spanish sooo
