It seems like a pretty big deal for one of my favorite cards, Pirate Ship.

I now want a Communism promo.

I like how, based on previous cards, we can already get a general idea of what stuff will do. Improve looks like a Remodel variant, Inventor may be a gainer or Lab variant, Old Witch probably distributes curses, Research may be Lab-like, one of Horn or Lantern could be a deck inspector.

I can also predict an Age of Empires II joke in the meme thread, and maybe an 'unbridled Capitalism' joke.

Late Capitalism
+1 Card + 1 Action
All players with 6 or fewer cards discard a card.

I'm going to naively assume that coins are not an issue (since we can play a fairly large number of Treasures including Bank and Fortune), and Buys probably aren't either (given Travelling Fair). Like Awaclus, I would Counterfeit a Potion and and have my -$2 cost token on Golem but *not* play Quarry (so Golems cost $2P). I will also put my Trashing token on Stonemason. So I can get to 6:

* Buy 2 Squires, putting them on my deck (probably Travelling Fair).
* Buy 2 Blessed Villages, receiving The Sea's Gift twice (due to reshuffling the Boons) to draw the Squires.
* Buy 2 Stonemasons, overpaying $2P each to gain 4 Golems and trashing two Squires to gain two Familiars onto my deck.
* Buy 2 Cursed Villages, receiving Locusts both times (due to reshuffling the Hexes), trashing the two Familiars and gaining 2 Golems.

Total cost: $26 and 8 Buys. So Copper + Silver + Gold + Platinum + Counterfeit (Potion) + Bank + Fortune gives $34 and 3 Buys, we can buy Travelling Fair 4 times to make that $26 and 7 Buys so just throw a Royal Seal or something in there to make up the difference.

Love it.

Makes me think there should be difficulty settings  ::)

HARD: No on-gain effects or events.  Just use the set of unique treasure in your hand.
Current best -- 3

MEDIUM: On-gain effects allowed.
Current best -- 4

EASY: Events allowed.
Current best -- 6

EDIT: With Stonemason on the board, you can get 4 and don't even need the Charm thing.

I think it's more using on-gain effects of kingdom cards.


Are we allowed to leave the Buy phase, then come back into it? Because Villa + Pathfinding could enable some shenanigans.

No, gotta stay in your buy phase.

How many Golems can you gain during your buy phase with with a hand of unlimited size, but made up of only treasure and hybrid treasure, with only one copy of each card -- and no other cards in your hand, deck, or on your mats?

City can get 6

Ah.  I didn't think of that one, darn.  I have two other ones.

I do consider Platinum and Shelters off limits, although I'm curious to know if it adds anything to allow them, but only for Prosperity and Dark Ages sets respectively.  Otherwise it has to be Golds and Provinces, plus whatever accoutrements come with the answer-card.

There are quite a few Kingdom Cards that can create the game state to double-Province without requiring the use of any other Kingdom cards.*  For example, Remodel.  With Remodel and 4 Golds: play Remodel, trash Gold, gain Province, play three Golds, buy Province.

A few more cards can, similarly, triple-Province.  Market: Play ten Markets to end up with a hand of 5 Golds, triple-Province with those $25 and 10 buys.**

Grand Market can, in the same way, quadruple-Province.

A hand of Candlestick Makers can, fairly simply, quintuple-Province using buys and coin tokens.  Governor (EDIT: and City) can also quintuple fairly trivially.

What other two cards can generate a quintuple-Province on their own?

*"Double-province" meaning, get two Provinces on a turn without milling/sacrificing other VP cards.
**There's at least one more triple-Province card that isn't mentioned here and isn't one of the two answers.
***Of course I could be wrong about so many things!  Maybe there's more than two.

 :) What is the largest number of differently-named Victory cards you can have in your deck, with none of them worth more than 0 VP?  :(

In the trash are six Estates and one Copper.

What is the card most likely to be present in the kingdom?

I have my own answer but there could always be a better one.
Actually, the answer is Pixie.

No I donít think itís that one.

Thanks so much for playing, all.  I'm truly grateful anyone takes the time. I posted the answers to all the unsolved images from this round and the previous round.

(However, the phrase "I'm set against that" means firm opposition, as far as I'm aware. Maybe someone has that at the back of their mind.)

Oh no.  You guys have been really slow solving these and now there are more! 

Each new pair includes exactly one name from Nocturne. 

The new answers also include one state.

Kingdom: Duchess, Lurker, Changeling, Market Square, Watchtower, Death Cart, Necromancer, Trader, Hunting Grounds; Ferry, Inheritance.

Setup: Ferry then Inheritance on Hunting Grounds. Gain Zombie Mason from the trash with Lurker.
Hand: Zombie Mason, Market Square, Market Square, Trader, Watchtower.
Top of deck: Hunting Grounds.

We have Trader in hand, so can exchange anything for a Changeling.
Play Zombie Mason, trashing Hunting Grounds.
Gain 3 Estates, exchanging two for Changelings and trashing the third with Watchtower.
Repeat this n times, where n is the size of the Estate pile. By default n=8 but it can be increased.
From trashing the final Estate-Hunting Grounds, gain a Duchy, exchanging it for a Changeling, gaining a Duchess, exchanging that for a Changeling.
React to the first Hunting Grounds trash with two Market Squares, gaining 2 Golds, exchanging them for Changelings.
Zombie Mason lets you gain a card: gain a Death Cart, exchanging it for a Changeling, and with it get two Ruins, exchanging those for Changelings.

Total Changelings is 2n + 7, so 23 if n=8.

The maximum value possible for n is 12+3*6 = 30, in a 6 player game with Ambassador and Lighthouse. Although we only have one Kingdom card slot left, we could replace Trader, Watchtower and Lurker with Black Market to allow both Ambassador and Lighthouse.

Nice!

Instead of gaining a Death Cart from Mason, you can gain Cursed Village, receiving Locusts, and trashing a Catacombs to gain two Death Carts.

Fool, receiving The Sun's Gift, The Wind's Gift, and The Sky's Gift to discard 4, 3, and 2 Tunnels to gain Gold nine times, exchanging each for Changeling, and then gaining a Gold from The Sky's Gift, exchanging for Changeling.

Dominion: Nocturne Previews / Re: Previews #5: Exorcist, Pixie, Vampire
« on: October 27, 2017, 05:14:30 am »
But it's outclassed by every other $3/$4 trasher, including Develop and Loan

Maybe, but there are cards on the board that only Exorcist can gain, and in some kingdoms it will be the only access to engine components.  So it might be a slower trasher but with a big payoff.

What's so confusing about the Envy art? It's a fish-like creature inside a bottle being envious of the fish-like creatures that aren't inside a bottle. Exactly what the creature is is not the point, you don't have to focus on that.

NO WAY.  The other fish envy the bottle.

I love how during the night phase, the interface asks, "What Night to play?"

Maybe that is short for "What M. Night Shyamalan movie to play?"

The Village.

Dominion: Nocturne Previews / Re: Nocturne Teasers Speculation
« on: October 21, 2017, 06:19:04 pm »
I think high fantasy could be a cool theme. Dominion is already a bit fantasy but most of the game is pretty grounded, except Nocturne from the looks of things. We really need a dragon card. Also something like temporum would be cool where we have a multiple timeline thing going on.

Please no. I'm fine with some minor fantasy with like Witch in the base game, or heavier but still appropriate like in Alchemy. But I don't want this to become another dumb fantasy game, or ditch the whole medieval theme to become time-wimey.

Fact: Dominion is set in the MCU.

The team is the Warriors, not the Warrior.  There's a Warrior Arena in Boston, which is what Google returns for "Warrior Arena" searches.  There's a better answer out there.  (Also, keep in mind that all 24 card names in every solution are distinct, so there's that.)
