Out of my fan card thread, I'm predicting I'll need to change 15-20 names because they are used in Nocturne.

I really like the tenth series. Perhaps it's the fact that I'm glad there's a new start after a long time of stories on mostly River Song and Clara Oswald, perhaps it's the gay visibility. But I also genuinely felt the writing was very good in some of the episodes, and not exactly horrible in any. I especially liked the first episode and Extremis. Perhaps the finale could have used another monster for a change, but it had many cute moments nonetheless.

Also, this thread just regenerated. Does this mean it's a woman now?
Dang, there was a whole thread for this? Be prepared for me to starg bumping it every time a new episode comes out.

S10 was great, and one of my favorites. I still think S8 was Capaldi's best, but S9 was sweet too. It's really just that finale that made S10 so great. The Pilot and Extremis were good, and I enjoyed Oxegyn and Pryamid. Obviously the Lie of the land was Dissapointing and the others weren't standouts to me. Capaldi is by far my favorite doctor now, I particularly like Extremis, Before the Flood, and Flatline as good episodes from his tenure.

Looking forward to Jodie Whittaker!

I found a digital copy of Spamilton: An American Parody at the library and I enjoy about as much as the real thing, it's that funny.

I think it's interesting to have Nightwatch strictly better, though I agree that it seemed a tad top expensive at .

Sherrif has never seemed that good when I've used it. This could just be due to a lack of skill or overbuying them, but I'm not happy to buy a Ruined Mine just to hand out a couple curses.

When I draw 2 cards for Age of Toys' effect, does that proc Explorer's coin gain?

Way ahead of you. Like, over 2 years ahead.  ;D

Just saw Spiderman Homecoming. Good stuff.

Not buying Advance w/ Necropolis when there are good 5s?
-Necropolis is the only village.
-You have 7 and want a king's court.
-Want 2VP from museum.
-3 Pile ending setup.
Trashing an Avanto w/ Sauna's effect?
-Wolf Den/Wall
-Want to stop your opponent's rouge from trashing your provinces with Rabble and Bridge Troll.
-Tomb, and maybe you can gain it back.
King's Courting a Beggar w/ 8 Provinces left?
-Gardens game.
-Tower and Keep
-Travelling fair, get a load of buys.
-Counting House
-Watchtower in hand, trying to run down the copper pile.

Not revealing Gold for Encampment?

You want to cover up the Plunders so your opponent can't buy them or you don't want to trigger 3-pile ending.
Or wanting to return them for Wall, Wolf Den.

I dunno... Most of this seems like the classic fan card stuff that comes up again and again. +Action tokens, -Action tokens, giving other piles the Treasure keyword. I seriously doubt Donald X. hasn't already considered and ditched most of these things.

On the topic of predictions I don't see coming true:
-Repeating old component-dependent mechanics (reserves, tokens, ruins, potion)
-Alchemy II, although this is pretty much a no brainier.
-Weird supply cards like Black Market, or Co0kiel0rd's Secret Society. Confusing. Maybe as another promo though.
-Generic messy rules stuff, like giving other types to cards.
-Team rules/cards.
-A new type of Landscape card.
-Another currency.

There are some things that I've seen in fan cards that could come true:
-Putting cards on other supply piles (like Kru5h's Rabbits). Spilt piles adds some precedent here, but tricky to work out.
-More funky card combos and dual cards.
-Cards with piles outside the supply, like Murchinary.
-Funky card costs, like 0, 1, 8+.
-Cost Increasing. This might go under the category of funky rules stuff, but it was playtested in adventures before so the scrapped card could live on...
-We now there used to be a different bonus on Wedding that Donald saved. Probably would return, though no clue as to what it would entail.

So far the most recent expansions have been sequels to old expansions, Adventures = Seaside, Empires = Prosperity. If that holds true, Hinterlands, Cornucopia, or Dark Ages would be next up (skipping Alchemy and the updated Base and Intrigue). There's definite room for new things coming from the "when buy" triggers of hinterlands. Villa shows this. Cornucopia was a small expansion and much loved, so new variety cards could come. Who knows? Another card that uses Prizes complete with a new set?  Dark Ages also has some room for new stuff. I doubt Ruins would ever make a comeback, but on-trash effects can come as well as other trash-related mechanics. Who knows even, maybe another set of knights!

Nice cards! I might make some better looking versions of a few of them (well, better looking IMO).

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.

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.
Doesn't everything look weak compared to Chapel?

What was the intent of this thread?

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.
