Rules Questions / Re: Inheritance interaction
« on: May 14, 2018, 09:40:50 pm »
How about letting the turn player decide which behavior happens like what happens first when multiple things are triggers at the same time? For example...

King's Court
--Band of Misfits
----Mining Village(trash)
--Band of Misfits
----Throne Room
------Herald to reveal Graverobber
------Herald to reveal Throne Room
--------Throne Room
----------Band of Misfits

"I declare it not to be the first one." (revealing another from hand)

------------Mill (discard Band of Misfits and another card)

"I declare the discarded Band of Misfits to be the first one." (revealing it)

--Band of Misfits (failing to play from hand)

This is very annoying, but I believe everyone who can execute this combo can play like this.

By the way, after trying to play Feast-inherited-Estate twice via Ghost, do I get +1 Action, +1 Card from Conspirator? I don't remember well.

Oh... what I posted makes us discuss a lot.

I like Inheritance. I've never imagined it needs a fix. As Donald points out, the problem is, MANDARIN, which moves cards from play. I also agree that we will never see this lunatic interaction again. The simplest way to overcome this problem is...

When you gain this in your buy phase, topdeck all Treasures  in play.

Mandarin errata like this. This changes the fewest.

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.)

I don't think I can play other player's card, but I am not sure.

And more, I've noticed another problem. If I have another Estate in my hand, we cannot tell which Estate I played (on Did I play the returned Estate? I mean, do I play Estate as Crown, or play Estate as "solid Estate" (so I fail to play it again)? (Maybe too complicated question...)

Just have many Coin tokens, trash your deck with Raze. Travelling Fair enables you to gain everything.
I think banning startup is needed.

It is:
  • The turn you take is effectively the first turn of the game.  So, you have no Durations in play, cards on mats, tokens on piles, etc.  And your opponent did nothing on their last turn (matters for Smugglers, Treasure Hunter).

Oh, I didn't notice. Then, I'll say f(2) is very huge. At least 30, I guess. (Hint: my puzzle thread)

This is what I prepared for. I hope it has no mistake.

Maybe Magic Lamp saves some kingdom spaces...

EDIT: Oops, I intended to say "gain 8", not "buy 8".
Replace the last 2 Remakes to 2 Bridges to "buy" Colonies.
Or replace the last 2 Bridges to 2 Remakes to "gain 12" Colonies.

Sultan, 4$, Action
+1 Card
+1 Action
You may discard a card to gain a Treasure costing up to 1$ more than it.
Although I know a famous card named Sultan, I'll write some.

Q1. Will Council Room be like...
+4 Cards, +1 Action, each other player gets +1 Buy?

Q2. Will Hunting Grounds be like...
+3 Cards, +1 Action. ...?

Q3. Does discarding really need? Playing another card needs a Village. I don't think this is so strong. There are very few cards which have multiple +Bonuses.

We have a way to buy 8 Colonies on turn 1 with 2 Events.
Do we really need 2 Events? I don't think so.

With your perfect shuffle luck and an Event, buy all Colonies.

Rules Questions / Coin of the Realm & Leprechaun
« on: April 10, 2018, 12:06:28 pm »
Can I call multiple Coin of the Realm after resolving an Action? I have a Leprechaun in my hand.

I may have worded it poorly. I intend that by requiring you to discard Credit Slip you can only do it once a turn regardless of how many cards you purchase.  That way it would be only after purchasing a few and having some lack lustre truns that you could finish the game with them at platinum strength.
Hint: Open Chapel and Credit Ship. Buy another, trash others, and buy Copper multiple times to discard Credit Ships many times.

Crones' Ledger $4
Action - Attack
When you buy this each other player may not spend coin tokens on their next turn.
Choose one -
Each other player gains a curse and a coin token
Each other player loses a coin token and you gain a number of coin tokens equal to those lost in this way.

Credit Slip $4
Whenever you buy a card you may discard this from your hand to gain 2 coin tokens.
When you play this it's worth $1 for every 2 coin tokens you control up to a maximum of $6.

I can gain Province trashing Gold with Butcher even if you bought Crones' Ledger on your last turn, right? Only 1 turn if you bought 2? Not applied to Outpost turn, right?

Credit Ship should have Reaction type. And too strong. It is like Merchant Guild. Both earns $2 when you bought 1 card, but Merchant Guild doesn't give you 2 coin tokens. And after discarding, Credit Ship earns more than Platinum. Overpowering, even considering it doesn't earn any $ when discarded. I think up to $3 or $4 works.

Market Square and Hermit. See Mr. Sangatsu's movie.

Or, boards with Witch and no trasher. Or boards with Knights.

So, I "get" a coin token when I play a Baker while I am possessed, right? Rule changed AGAIN?

Arcane Chest: As others have already said you basically just name victory with this early in the game and then name treasure/action later and it's rarely going to be a particularly interesting decision. I think that type naming is always going to be a bit of a dud because of this but I can something like this working if it's a bit more like Contraband, Contraband is certainly something that can be improved upon.

I agree. How about giving your opponent an incentive to name a good type? For example, 1 cost reduction on her turn. Or +$1 at the start of her next turn if you buy a card with that type? Or not a type to reduce but a card not to do.

Does Phoenix need draw and set aside?

For each 2 different named cards in play, set aside the top card of your deck.

How about this phrase?

A cantrip trasher, whose idea I've got from another player.

Cursed Broom
cost $3 - Action - Reaction
+1 Card
+1 Action

You may discard a card to trash another from your hand.
When you gain a card, you may reveal this from your hand, to put it onto your Broom Mat and gain a Curse.
When you ask a Witch to help you, you have to pay something. Sometimes your hand, sometimes your vps.
This card shines with draw-until-x cards, especially with Watchtower. You can still react again when you gain a Curse from this, revealing Watchtower to trash it (even if Cursed Broom loses track of a Curse, you can reveal this to gain another).

Is it uninteresting, or broken? what do you think?

An opponent has Haunted Woods in play, and it's affecting me.  I buy a card.  Then, I trash a card with Bat.  What happened?

(I can think of multiple solutions.)

I bought a Villa, topdecking a Watchtower, played the Villa, Enchantressed, played the Watchtower, and played a Bat.

I like Efreet, but Djinn is definitely too strong for $5. Artisan costs $6 and makes you put a card on your deck. Wishes gain cards costing up to $6 (Artisan is up to $5).
Efreet is very strong, but I think it's balanced enough by costing $6 and needing a Djinn. But needing a Magic Lamp is not enough of a drawback for Djinn.

On another note, my favorite card of yours is Owl, although I think it needs tweaking (as-is, it's probably too strong for $4 and too weak for $5). I'd suggesting moving the hex mechanic to Djinn, have Djinn say either "Receieve a hex. Gain a Wish" or "You may receieve a hex to gain a Wish" with some simple alternate effect. Then do something a little different with Owl.

How about "You may play a Magic Lamp from your hand. If you do, gain a wish." clause?

I did have the particular mechanic that enables this come up in a game (not the exact scenario though).

Turn 1 - I buy a Silver.
Turn 1 - My opponent buys a Silver.
Turn 2 - I play the Silver I bought on turn 1.

How did this happen?

Travelling Fair, I suppose.

Then, how about this?

Turn 1 - I buy a Gold.
Turn 1 - My opponent buys a Gold.
Turn 2 - I buy a Gold.

El Dorado
Action - $5

+2 Cards
+2 Actions
+1 Buy

When you gain this, each other player gains an El Dorado.
If they don't, they reveal their discard pile and return all revealed El Dorados to the supply.

I hear you can see El Dorado from that Watchtower...

Nobody can end this game if more than 2 players exist. Trader, Watchtower, please help us.

I bought a Pirate Ship with the intention to play it. My opponent had no Treasures in their deck. Why would I do that?

Clarification: I have not played Pirate Ship before during this game.

To trash Urchin, whose pile has some Embargo tokens.

If your discard pile is empty except for the cards you bought this turn, take Clear Skies.

I think this has a rule problem: we cannot see a card in discard, excepting the top card. And it is too long. How about "empty deck"? Much clearer.
And I think Clear Skies is weak, and has a problem, too. What if we play Inherited Estates? Duchy, Province as Copper works, I think.

Rules Questions / Is Bane a card type?
« on: January 03, 2018, 11:00:16 am »
I play Courtier, and reveal Merchant, which is Bane.
Do I choose 1 or 2?
Does Young Witch add a card type like Inheritance?
How about Split like Castles?
