Lurker, Group D (64-50), averages near #58 Trader and #50 Ball.



For all the complaints I've posted about Dominion art being too dark, this one is the reverse. Nobody lurks in broad daylight if they don't want to stand out like a sore thumb. She doesn't think anyone is going to notice that knife or the eye patch isn't going to draw attention to her? She needs to find a little darker location to lurk in.

Clearly those complaints weren't enough to drag lurker down in lower depths of art.

Mill, Group F (91-80), averages near #82 Caravan Guard and #87 Legionary.



I really like mill. It would fit right into the Village.

Diplomat, Group H (119-106), averages near #112 Ruined Library and #105 Wandering Minstrel (actually in group G so Diplomat would probably rate near the best of group H).



This lady reminds me of someone but I haven't been able to put a name to that someone yet. One daughter said she reminded her of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland.

Patrol, Group H (119-106), averages near #106 Curse and #115 Tunnel.



This is one skinny dude. The tree trunk is a distraction and he doesn't appear to be carrying any weapons.

There's a lot of orange going on here. I like the faceless masses.

Replace, Group L (178-164), averages near #164 Wedding and #175 Peddler
...
Who is replacing who here? I'd have to assume the short guy is getting replaced by the tall guy (short people have no reason to live). What's the executioner doing here? It's a pretty harsh way to get let go.
Did you notice the two guys look the same?  I thought the guy standing (the short guy isn't short -he's on his knees) was going to replace the guy getting exicuted as an imposter.

My daughters also thought the one guy was on his knees. I just wanted to get the short people thing out there although it is a viable alternative.

This bandit is putting on quite a show. My daughters say she's got some junk in the trunk. They see some strange things.

She could have come right from Minas Tirith (Lord of the Rings). She might be Medusa with a helmet on with that hair and the lighting is unusual.

Here we go. 14 cards.

Courtier, Group N (195-208 range), averages near #195 Bandit Fort and #207 Villa



They look like they could be in a building on Tatooine. We like the shadowing. He has great cheek bones.

So, my original system isn't working well for me in adding additional cards. I've had the four of us rate them and then it's easy enough to sort them into the groups (A through Z) by their average. However, to properly rank them, I'd have to pull out the entire group for each card and have us put them in a relative position. First, this is going to take a lot of time. Second, I think what will happen is that the committee will start wanting to move things around in the group again. I'm not quite ready to go through an entire re-rate. Also, what do I do when the committee no longer exists as it now is?

I think what I will do is just post the cards and name what lettered group they fall into with some comments from the committee and name a few cards that had similar average ratings and their ranks. I'll start posting probably Sunday and have them all done by the end of Monday. I will then spend some time figuring out how to deal with the issues.

It's a nice improvement. I think the real questions is, are the women get paid the same as the men?

90-93% of people are worse at statistics than they think.

Statistics are far more skippable than most people think.

92.54% of statistics are made up on the spot.

For the 2nd editions, how many of the cards that were kept have changed art? It looks like moat got some color added to it. Are there others?
Moat is the only card with changed art in the 2E versions. Well not counting the base cards, which all have art now (and aren't identical to the base cards, including nudging down some of the VP card art in order to fit the VP). And not counting the trash.

Thanks. I won't feel like I need anything other than the update packs. Moat isn't that different, but it is nicer with the extra color.

I should have my update packs on Wednesday. Should I wait for the release of the Sauna promo and do them all together?

I only ordered the update packs, so I might be missing out on doing art ratings for other cards that were slightly altered. I'm just trying to get an idea of the scope of the art changes so I can decide how I want to deal with them in my art rankings.

Edit: I looked through the released instructions and didn't see any significant changes, but if anyone knows of any kept cards that got changed, please let me know.

As soon as I have the physical cards in hand, I will begin the process of updating the rankings. It shouldn't take too long once I have them.

I agree with crlundy. No pointless decisions. If multiple cards need to be decided for trashing or putting back on your deck or whatever, and the cards are the same, skip the decision. It's not important which copper I put back on my deck first.
