The Mafia game looks fun, but how do I tell if it's open or not?

I thought Donald said that he thinks Guilds might be the last one, but he might make others... :(

Theme or mechanics.

Special Powers
'Renaissance' Theme
Non-attack interaction theme
A 10-card set that talks about other cards in the set
Attack-Durations (not a whole expansion on this though, added to another one would be nice)
Beyond Colony and Platinum
Sci-fi theme!

Here's a funny parody card (totally not mine, though):

Chuck Norris. $0
+5 Actions.
Chuck Norris doesn't need an Action to be played. During your Buy phase, all cards cost $0 If anybody question Chuck Norris' abilities, they automatically lose the game. Do not discard Chuck Norris during your clean-up phase.

Play with the Dominion games. Don't play with the Dominion games. Don't do either. WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?
I mean, what are they like? Fun? Dumb? Strange? Cool?

No, it's not you guys' fault. That post hasn't only haunted haunted me on here, and I've realized that I've been wrong about a few things. Don't worry, I'll do it again.  :D

To make it the second worse card in the game i think you try and compare it adventurer, transmute or harvest
Adventurer is bad because it can hurt your next turn. (Discarding Actions.)
Transmute is only good if you turn up a Victory, otherwise it clouds up your deck.
And Harvest is okay, it just needs to be worth $3.

I'm Nik the Dominion Player. I have a lot of spare time, AND a gamer family, so we play Dominion almost every day!
I'm DominionGuy on BoardGameGeek.

By the way, I have a few questions:
1. What's respect? (And how do I give it and get it?)
2. How do I get a profile pic?
3. Why does it say 'Herbalist' under my username?

Guys, really, I'm really a person. I just haven't played Goko online, only done the adventures. I am, by the way, indeed DominionGuy.
It turns out, I've been wrong about a lot of things. I've come to like Adventurer. I've come to like Moneylender.
But my Scout opinion has not changed. Come on, let's make Scout the second worst card in Dominion!

In conclusion, I won't say it's the best $4 card, but it is a pretty powerful one. Join the fight to make Scout NOT The Worst Card Ever!


What *is* the worst card in your opinion? There has to be one. Scout rarely shines.  In your example I'd most likely rather have had a silver at any point before that turn.
For me, it's a tie between Workshop and Duchess. On one hand, you don't want Workshops because there's only a need at the start of the game to get 4s; but then again, you don't want a billion Duchesses clouding up your deck.

Because I'm known for making joke posts about Scout. This sounds like that.
No, really, I'm serious. Scout is a pretty good card.

Before you ask, no, this is not my alt-account.
Why would anyone think it would be?

When I say 'Scout' you already are thinking 'The Worst Card In Dominion? Yeah." And then you joke about for a while, mainly by saying that Scout is the best card in Dominion (sarcastically). Well, I'm here to tell you you're all wrong. Scout is, in fact, a very powerful card. Why?

1.Looking to your next turn.
You don't want Provinces in your hand, however many points they're worth. Now, sure, with the Scout, you do put those Victories in your hand, but they don't count against you on our next turn.
2. It interacts amazingly with +card cards.
Take this situation. You have this hand: Gold, Scout, Silver, Village, Duchy. In this instance, I'd first play the Scout. I look at the top 4 cards of my deck. Let's say they are: Duchy,Duchy,Remodel, Gold.
First, I get to discard two annoying Duchies that would otherwise cloud up my next hand. Now also, Scout has a clause on it: 'you may put the rest of the cards back in any order.' This is great! So I'll, of course, put the Gold on top. I'll then play the Village. Now I have two Golds and a Silver, which means I can buy a Province!

Interacts well with:
+card cards, heavy Victory decks, Big Money, Intrigue
Interacts badly with:
Non-Victory decks, non-+cards kingdoms, curses


In conclusion, I won't say it's the best $4 card, but it is a pretty powerful one. Join the fight to make Scout NOT The Worst Card Ever!
