on of my pet favorite games is give me the brain:
 https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/176/give-me-brain

It has a delightful mechanic that would make dominion insufferable.
Basically, each player is a zombie working at a fastfood restaurant, and wants to go home.  but they have to finish all their tasks first, and some are too hard for a mindless zombie.  fortunately, the zombies have a brain to share for when things get tough...


"Give me the brain"
Action
Cost: 1$

+1 Action
Take the brain
-
Setup: place a brain token on each of 4 other random kingdom actions, and put the brain card in the middle of the table.


"The brain"
State

Players without the brain cannot play actions with brain tokens.
After a player with the brain plays an action with a brain token, they must roll a d6.  if the result is less than the cost of the card, they must return the brain to the center of the table.

This does doesn't get the Gold OUT of your hand though...

Cost: $3

Put this on your Tavern mat.
-------------------
At any time (even in the middle of resolving an action), you may call this to move a card between your Sleeve mat and your hand (in either direction).


(Maybe it should've been a split pile?)

Either this is completely random, or I don't get something about it.  Also, can we call terminal draw cards "cat" in games using Taco for the palindrome?

Due to the vastly shrinking namespace for Villages, the designer could not come up with a better name for this card ( which is a village ) than "taco".
This dovetails with the requirement that players who use Taco complete the task the designer had such a poor time with, although, presumably, they won't need to hold themselves to a higher standard than the card designer did. 

If you are looking for more to get than that, then Re: Really bad card ideas is probably not the oasis you should be hauling you humps to.

Well, ok, but the important thing here is that Village-Smithy is the original tacocat.
