What does that one even do? Whenever you draw a card, you get a Curse, until you reshuffle?

Well, I don't know if it's exactly good that you win a Tournament and get a Princess on top of your, ahem...deck (running joke at my game night), or a Mine can come along and trash a Harem for money, but, that's another story. 

Neighborhood Pub $4

After another player's turn, you may trash this card from your hand.  If you do, they take one shot per Village they played. 

Grand Heist $0* (Prize)

When you play this card, you may trash all treasure in the supply except for Copper.

Kingdom Visitors' Center Throne Room $5

When you play this card, each other player must reveal a Janitor from their hand.  If they don't, they gain a Health Code violation token.  This is -2VP/token at end of game. 

Gold Pressed Latinum - $21

Treasure worth $11.

And, this was an actual card I had in an expansion I did awhile back; it was not well loved and only was interesting in multiplayer games...

Chain Lightning - $6

When you play this card, trash a card from your hand.  Each successive player to the left (except you) trashes a card from their hand worth at least $1 more than the card that the previous person trashed, or reveals a hand with no such cards.  If any player reveals a hand this way, the action is resolved.

Quickly degenerates into a 'who can name the highest number' competition with Monument. Which, admittedly, can be pretty fun if you know your absurdly-high numbers. (I'll play the Monument G(5^^^^^5) times...)

I find it plays best when you have all your cards in hand (no deck and no discard pile) and you have two of them in your hand.

Cool, when you first look at the card it's not completely obvious that it is broken. If you shuffle during your turn you might be able to play it twice instead of once, but it's flaw is with two you can go on as long as you like!

Diabolical Tutors
$5 Action
+ 1 Action
Name a card. Reveal cards from the top of your deck until you reveal one that has that name. Put that card in your hand and discard the other reveal cards.

Edit: And while I'm at it I'll post some more:

Dragon with Dark Arms
$3 Action
+1 Action
+1 Card
If you have exactly 3 cards in your discard pile, +3 Cards.

Port Ricos
$0* Action-Prize
All player's shuffle their discard pile into their deck. Trash this card, if you do swap decks with the player on your right.

Agriculture
$4 Action
+1 Buy
+2$
Choose one:
Place a Coin token on the Agriculture mat; +1$ per Coin token on the Agriculture mat, then remove all Coin tokens from the Agriculture mat.

Perhaps after official development, Donald X. will consider less serious promo cards along the lines of "Tickle opponent.  If opponent laughs while being tickled, +2 cards."  Now you're thinking, how would that ever be implemented on Isotropic.  The easy answer is:  your opponents have to tickle themselves.

You do not get Chuck Norris.  Chuck Norris will join your deck if he deems it worthy of his awesomeness (which, he will never do, because your deck is insufficiently awesome due to its lack of Chuck Norris).

Kudos for using number from the original Japanese, if it was on purpose.

And now, some *really* bad card ideas:

Blender
Action
2
+1 Card
+1 Action
Shuffle any Kingdom pile.
Setup: When Blender is dealt from the randomizer deck, instead of choosing 10 piles of 10 cards, instead choose 99 other cards at random from all Kingdom piles you own. Add 1 copy of Blender to these, sort them randomly into 10 piles of 10 cards each. Only the top card of a pile may be purchased. Players may look at the contents of piles at any time.

Wallpaper
[Image -- a tiled light pink floral pattern, which extends into the text box]
<No type>
<No cost>
<No text>

Quote Stuffing
Action
7
+1000 Buys
+$5000
Whenever you buy a card this turn, immediately return it to its pile.

Smorgasbord
Action
5
Each player gains one of each card in the Supply. 

Provincial Apprentice
Action
13
+1 Action
+6 Cards

Planned Obsolescence
Action
3
Trash Planned Obsolescence. Name a Supply pile. Roll a D6 and place it on that pile. While it remains there, that pile running out can't cause the game to end. Each turn, decrement it. If you would decrement it from 1, remove the die and gain a copy of Planned Obsolescence.

Hot Potato
Action Curse
2
When you gain Hot Potato, shuffle it into your deck.
When you draw Hot Potato, play it immediately. If you can't, discard it.
When you play Hot Potato, choose an opponent at random. That player gains it.
-2 VP
