there's already a card named Pillage (and there's a whole lot of potential baggage around naming a card "enslave"); can I suggest "Pilfer" and "Recruit" as alternate names? then the art could be like, a thieves guild type thing.
Good idea, I'll change the names in my next mock-up

In my opinion, if the artists for Dominion cards would mimic the art of medieval and ancient times, we would see much more sexy people in their illustrations, especially a lot of nude people.
After some research, it turns out that in the medieval era they did not make nude art, only in the renaissance with the figures of the female Venus and the nude male athlete. During the medieval era the lower class did not have access to private housing and thus nudity was generally considered innocent, while in the renaissance it began to be frowned upon. In both eras, however, breasts were not considered sexual and it was normal for women to be outside with breasts visible.

I think they are both too good. With 1 instead of 2 Coffers/Villagers they look less crazy.
What would be better: 1 coffer/villager at $3, or 2 at $4?

Donald X. should release a nude spin-off dominion, with hits like harem, courtier, and more. Must have guys in it too.

I actually think it would be a creative failure if Vampire wasn't sexy. The link between Vampires and sex appeal is well documented. Also, definitely gotta put my vote towards the man on Groom. Isn't Villain's face mostly in shadow?

Eh, groom is fine. Here is my list of attractive dominion characters, since I have nothing better to do:
Woman from pursue
Villian
Exorcist
Page line
Wandering Minstrel, Mystic
Guy from Golem

Dual Event: Pillage and Enslave. The event starts on pillage, then flips every time it is bought to reveal the other one. One is big money, one is engine. Inspired by the symmetry between horses and spoils.

Man, I read deckme's post and, uh... reads like some kinda religious rant. Firstly, witch doesn't have bad art? I actually think it has some of the best art in the base set, maybe deckme doesn't like it because the women appears to be wearing very non-traditional clothing? Secondly, Necromancer isn't a satanic theme... it's a common fantasy element. Den of sin and devil's workshop are satanic, but I don't see a problem with that. We have bishop, chapel, monastery, cardinal, priest, church, so what's the problem of adding lightly demonic themes, especially to an expansion about monsters, spirits, and supernatural? But getting to the problematic part of the post, deckme won't show their children nocturne because of vampire, conclave, and exorcist. Vampire is wearing a dress, even from a religious perspective there is nothing wrong with that... and conclave and exorcist have boobs. So what? Deckme's children have never seen a woman? They can't know the concept of boobs? Torturer is shirtless, yet I don't see deckme complaining about that, in fact they praise the card. The whole post is rather silly, and deckme unfairly deprives his children of what is imo the most child/beginner-geared expansion. Also, can we admire what a snacc villain is?

Edit: might be biased on the satanist bit, for obvious reasons

This is a bit of a nonsensical discussion, but what is the hottest character in dominion art?
My vote goes to Wandering Minstrel

Why did no project give extra VP at the end of the game based on some criteria, etc? It seems like one of the more obvious things to do with them... is it because it would be too similar to landmarks? Or did you use all of your good "When scoring"s in empires?

35
Even if they are discarded at the same time, by revealing one you must play it to finish the reaction, then move on to the next possible reaction "input", which has now been lost track of? Is this right?

36
Pillage/Counterfeit

You are gonna lose those spoils anyways, so why not double them?
Plus the spoils return before they can be trashed.

My entries: (mine will be later)

I may have added the option to come with multiple ideas. This doesn't mean, however, that you have to. If you have no good ideas for Mine, I'd prefer it if you skip the card (it ain't gonna boost your chances for winning the contest).

Sorry, I have a decent general idea for mine but still haven't worked out the specifics...

As far as I understand, Menagerie was the "left-overs" from Renaissance (jail -> exile, card tokens -> horses).

Do you have other "left-over" ideas that could be remade into a new expansion, or are you planning on the next one having all-new mechanics?

UNO - Landmark
If you have one card in your hand and you call "UNO" before someone else, take two VP from here.
If someone else called "UNO" before you, they take one of your VP tokens, or you gain a curse if you don't have any VP tokens.
-
Setup: put 6 VP here per player

Here are my judgings:

I won't be giving comments individually, since most cards ended up being similar.
I was looking for cards that were:
1. Innovative
2. Bore a resemblance to the original, and
3. Fixed the problem with the original

Honourable mentions: Xen3k, D782802859, LastFootnote
Best spy: grrgrrgrr
Best hag: spineflu

Overall winner: grrgrrgrr

Sorry if you don't agree with the judging, but this is my first time :)

- a heirloom for an existing card
- a card that uses an existing card as a heirloom
- a treasure that costs
- a card that thematically fits it's name
An heirloom for an existing card was literally last week's contest...

My entry: a Chancellory was where you went to get stuff signed and sealed.



44
If I may add some:
- Either a spirit, or a card that gains spirits, or both
- An action that will play itself (Black cat, falconer, village green, noble brigand, not cultist since cultist doesn't play itself, but another copy)
- A card with an heirloom that isn't a treasure

Of course I am saving my best idea if I win (might be a while)

When you gain or discard this, you may set aside a Copper from your hand or in play. If you do, at the start of your next turn, play it.

The text might be a bit clunky, but I'm happy with the concept. It's like Baker but can't be used until t2, so you might have:
$3, $5
$4, $4
$5, $3
or
$2, $5


Woodcutter is removed and terrible. Plus, you need to basically pay extra for the effect.
Still, no card should be strictly better than another.

Spy - $4
Action - Attack
+1 Action

Look at the top 3 cards of your deck. Put one in your hand and discard the rest.

Each other player reveals the top card of their deck, and discards it or puts it back, your choice.

Just a bit of a buff to the personal card selection/sifting. Vanilla Spy is actually pretty popular in my game group, but we do acknowledge it is not very powerful. I think this change would make it very desirable just for the non-attack effect.
This doesn't solve the problem with spy that it takes too long to resolve

Variants and Fan Cards / Cache change
« on: September 02, 2020, 02:36:55 pm »
This might be off topic, but would cache be better if it gave $4 instead of three? Not only have we not had a treasure that gives 4 yet, would it be balanced?

(You're allowed to immediately gain the phoenix back after it trashes itself)

You should allow this to gain trashed Victory cards. I know that'd normally be taboo but it's a potion-cost card and they can break the rules in fun ways.
I think its been mentioned before, but why the fate type? It doesn't give boons.

Haunted Cruise -- Event -- 0$

Once per turn: +1 Buy, and Exile and Curse and a Copper from the supply. At the start of your next turn, put a card you have in Exile into your hand.

First, I would never buy this unless I had camel train, way of the camel, transport, stockpile, or I bounty hunted my good cards away. Secondly, I think it has
a bit too much overlap with transport... being a worse version that is only usable in limited kingdoms.
