I just stepped on a Lego.
They don't hurt as much as everyone says they do.

I had a similarly maddening moment when I was seeing that John Cena commercial about America. The music was so familiar to me, but I just couldn't place it. It was driving me nuts. I knew it was in a movie. I checked V for Vendetta, but the big scenes there were set to the 1812 Overture. Oh, maybe it was played during O Captain, My Captain in the Dead Poets Society. Okay, that was also far off the mark.

It finally hit me that it was in the Truman Show. The piece is by Phillip Glass and is called Anthem.

It was such a relief to have that knowledge. I hope you find your girl.

You should have come to me again. :P I actually would have been able to tell you that one without any research. The Truman Show is one of my favorite movies and I have that track on my computer.


I've been listening to that entire soundtrack every day for the past couple weeks.
I love that song! It is somewhat obscure, I'm surprised to actually meet someone else who has it on their playlist.

You know, at this point we should basically just rename this "Temporum and Other Games." Actually, we could probably just have our own Temporum sub-board.

Hello, hello

Maybe I missed it in this thread, but is there a source template for us to use for the card back and front design?

My son is a graphics design student and I am hoping to interest him in the game by having him design a few 'Fan cards' that I created.

-Thanks

I can direct you to the best GIMP template. Violet's generator is also sweet, but it won't teach you any gimp skills.

I've never seemed someone whip out a drawing pad and start sketching the dominion card back when they were told to draw a card.

Incinerate does not need an extra buy. All the trashers that do have one, Forager, Trading Route and Salvager, are also (conditional) payload cards which can make use of the extra buy whereas a multitrasher rarely does. I like that Incinerate makes Cursers slightly weaker.
Take the +buy off and it looks weak compared to Chapel.

Back in the day we had a brackett-craze on the forums.
Those were the good ol' days. No weety4, no pointless arguments from authority, just bliss and brackets.

So what are your thoughts on the Gathering type? I find the text on the cards to be self-explanatory, but I suppose it's easier for players to see 'gathering' and think 'we put VP tokens on this pile then'. This is what led me to do the Multi type.
The Gathering type exists only so that Defiled Shrine can refer to these cards. Unless you need to refer to such cards specifically, there is no need for an extra type.
Ditto. Cards should not have a type solely based on their on-play effect.

Reserve says hi. Though I'm on record as stating that reserve really shouldn't be a type. Or at the very least, Distant Lands shouldn't be one. The rest of them should have probably been reactions. But as it stands, reserve means nothing other than "has the on play effect of moving to your tavern mat in addition to other effects."
Yeah, Reserve type is a stretch. But I think we can all more or less agree that Multi should not be a type.

About Multi cards, I am against the subtype. You don't need a new type for each mechanic, intrigue didn't come with "choosing" type cards. You say it's for simplicity but it doesn't make things simpler. Even if you want to keep the type, I'd change it.

Regarding the multi cards, I think you should have -1 Action tokens. Whenever you would have to spend an action (other than playing a card), if you have no actions you may take a -1 Action token. These are basically the same as debt. You can't take more -1 Action tokens if you have some and you have to play them off with Actions.

you want to repay at least 1 debt this turn
You need to repay all 8, you can't buy things with debt.

Incinerator - Interesting. Reminds me of Plastic Brain's Medicine. It might be a tad too good with curses or a bit swingy.

Innovator - IDK about the -action, but the rest should be just gaining. "Spend all of your $, then gain a card to your hand costing up to the total $ spent." I don't think you need the option to do only one, right now the card seems too good. I could really be underestimating the -action though.

Locusts - Looks really good. A cantrip trasher for 4, that gives you a free $5? Sure, it has limited uses but it's a guaranteed opener. Even with 5, you need to grab one to at least contest the pile.

My favorite is Donate Possession games.   ::)
I'm assuming because people buy Donate after possessing you but before reading the text on Donate and Possession really well.

17
Possession has always sucked FYI.

Go all in: Get Dark Ages, Adventures, and Empires then play with Band of Mistfits, Storyteller, Crown, Black Market, City Quarter, Page, Peasant, Wine Merchant, Procession, Rats, and Murchinary.

Clearly I've been influenced by the refined, sophisticated comedic talent of f.ds

Oh and Asper, I've taken down your cards for now. I don't want people using your outdated versions.

I'm not planning to alter my cards anymore, so if you want to mock them up again, feel free to. Personally, I think it's cute to have so many fan cards collected in a single thread. I never thought there were as many fan card designers, tbh.
I'm planning on still changing them sometime. But I don't want people playing with the wrong versions so I removed some.

Rules Questions / Re: +1 Card token on a treasure?
« on: May 19, 2017, 09:25:32 am »
With split piles, you can have +1 Card tokens on treasure supply piles, such as Rocks or Plunder.  What happens when you play the treasures?  Do you just get cards?

Yes. And if these cards are treasures, you can play them

If you use Black Market or Storyteller to play treasures with your +1 Card token on them, you can even play drawn action cards.
And play the Storyteller you just drew with a crown you played! Ain't Dominion great?

24
Does anyone still use this? I'm pretty much done with it, but I'm willing to revisit it if people still want to.

I haven't really read through everything, but kudos for updating an expansion based on playtesting! That doesn't happen a lot.
