There should be treasures that cost also. Names could be "Lead" or "Quicksilver" It would make sense because Colony goes with Platinum, Province to Gold, Duchy to Silver, Estate to Gold.

yes ;)

or

I don't know whether it is compliant to rules, because trashing and gaining are actions.
Trashing (and changing) is one of the main theme of Alchemy i think.
But it is very difficult to create a balanced treasure and i wouldn't buy more than one money changer? Have to think about it.

I am not satisfied with this because money changer is no basic treasure card. I think Potion fulfils this.
So money changer is more an action card but there have to be better variable features but not with so much text.

Basic Cards for Alchemy:



an old idea and a long time discussed in German Dominion Forum

It is a risc to create a new basic card especially with potion in cost. The principality needs only a silver and a potion to buy, a duchy more. But you have to have a potion on hand, which means you have to buy one and you don't get it often if you only buy one. So i decided to give more victory points.
But Bewitched Town ...



...helps a lot.

A county with same victory points is like a province and a counter part so it is logic to give the same 6 victory points. If you lag with provinces especially at the end of the game, you have the chance to get 6 victory points without decreasing the province pile.
It is a good decision to have 3 treasure difference to principals as usual (dutch vs province).

So it is a good idea to add these basic cards to an Alchemy game without removing duchies and provinces.
I think you should choose a few Alchemy kingdom cards too.

If you like to play with Alchemy, here is an addition:



An empty County supply pile ends the game.

You should use minimum three kingdom cards from Alchemy or Alchemy-like cards.
These two victory cards may be an addition (my favourite) to Duchy and Province or an alternative.

I know, that i come in for criticism but i try ;)

Contest #16: new Basic card
Design a new Basic card, which can be added to the game independently of any expansions. This may be a new Supply pile, a card for the player’s starting deck or even a totally new mechanic. In this contest, I will put my focus on creativity, novelty and originality. Good success.
wow, that's a real mammoth task. I'm curious about all proposals.

winner of contest 14: Aquila Jailer

perhaps you like to see your card in reality (only a try)


Ah nice, you found a good picture for it. That's what stopped me doing a mock-up. I do intend to put Jailer into one of my fan sets, but I think I'd like to do my own mock-up for it, make things in keeping with the others I've already done. Still, there is the hall of fame thread that once updated could have this card on it.
And how interested are you in accuracy? This should be an Action Attack Duration, and have +3 Cards, capitalised.
it was only a present for you. Accuracy is very important for me. I change it and will print it in a german version.

Well, here you see what the German translaters of Dominion have to deal with. Honestly though, translating Torturer to the German equivalent of Jailer because they wanted to be all nice and family friendly is something they brought onto themselves. I don't see why the English card should change because of this. There are so many languages out there, you can't really make sure none used something similar before. I think Gefängniswärter is perfectly fine.
ok - now it's difficult to find a nice picture, not too much fantasy but middle age.

And the winner is.........JAILER! By Aquila! This card is straightforward but opens up really interesting strategic play, using an attack that's a little bit different than anything else we have out there.
[...]
congratulation
It is difficult to translate Jailer into german, because there is already Kerkermeister (Torturer) and Gefängniswärter is too boring and Scharfrichter with terrible history.

perhaps VOGT ? which sounds similar in different languages. In english there is no parallel, perhaps BAILIFF?

See "Secret History" of Bandit Camp. Gaining Treasures is not so good, even if you gain into your hand.
i have read it, but you can draw potions too (to your hand!). So i hink this is a good idea.
If you have Market Town, you already have a Potion. The instances where you'd want a second are very limited.
If you have only one potion and your deck is growing you need more potions. Remember that Donald recommend three Alchemy-cards in Dominion with Alchemy. So it's sometimes more useful to gain a potion. And there are still some more treasures up to 4.
And there are several cards to change potion into gold. I think, Donald secrets keep sometimes something secret ;)

Yeah, this will just end up as an unfun arms race. At the very least, you shouldn't have an attack whose attack part so thoroughly cancels out its on-play part.
hm - yes that's a problem. The idea was to have an attack card with very low costs and it's a little bit better than a cantrip.
On the other side villagers and coffers are very powerful if you have other cards which add villagers or coffers to your mat. So you think there shouldn't be a bonus +1 villager for the player?
But if there are no other cards which adds villagers or coffers? To be sure, that there are + villagers- and + coffers-cards there should be one.

Have to think about it.

Yeah that was the best picture I could find. One clip art was good but it had the word clip art stretched across it and another one was a product. I don’t mess with those pictures. It’s just for the contest anyway.
I like the card very much; when the contest is over, i will post here a DOMINION-graphic-like version . :)

Discarding a card from your hand that might give you a victory token, is it worth the risk?
sorry, terrible name and terrible graphic. Isn't it possible to find a Dominion-like picture and name?
