Awful

However some of the names of cards are cool. They just need a different function.

I’ve been thinking of creating some new cards that stay in the trash just like the Necromancer’s zombies. And street cleaner might go well with an outhouse.
Or just most of these ideas belong there.

I mean come on who would buy lost witch.

Double negative on purpose?  Does the game Jumanji in their next buy phase if they have debt and they Donated their deck?

Maybe I worded it wrong, but the idea was you're spending it to prevent someone from Greening that turn. But if they didn't hit Province, they would have dudded anyways, and if they did hit $8 they get to buy Dud Turn themselves (Mission wording) so you get an auto dud, and really nothing changes, you just lengthened the duration of the game by a turn.

It's once per game. You buy it, then your opponent buys it, and then you can't do anything and then it's your opponent's regular turn.

Maybe you needed $16 and two buys, but you only got $13 and two buys.  Or you got $8 really early and you also got your junk attack before anyone else, or you have some other gainer.

Dud Turn Event - $8
Once per game: When you buy this, when each other player takes their next turn, they cannot can't buy cards.

It's once per game. You buy it, then your opponent buys it, and then you can't do anything and then it's your opponent's regular turn.

In that scenario, Dud Turn is really just an $8 Mission that forces* your opponent to also get an $8 Mission. (* Well, makes doing so the best available option, most likely.)

Hm, I guess Dud Turn hits your opponent the hardest when your opponent has the largest expected (buy-oriented) payload, i.e. when they're most likely to retaliate, in which case it's just trading Mission turns. Could you use it to your advantage in some other circumstance?

If they retaliate, you're trading Mission turns. That benefits the player with the largest (expected) non-buy payload—so gainers, attacks, maybe traveler upgrades.

If they can't (or don't) retaliate, your benefit on your turn is your full payload, minus the $8 spent on Dud, plus the non-buy payload you have over your opponent. Either that's close to nothing, or your decks differ greatly in payload.

For example, if you have $16/2 and get Dud/Province and they don't hit $8, your buy of Dud maybe stole a Duchy from them? At the expense of them buying Dud later and stealing two Provinces from you, I think. And if they hit $8 and retaliated, you stole a Province but they stole two from you.

So I guess in the case of asymmetric payload, a Dud Turn exchange on net harms the player with the highest (buy-focused) payload. The poor get richer. Good in Big Money.

Cool. Still, it belongs in RBCI ;D

Nice ones.

I like it. For the cost of a Witch.

Discovery - Event - $3

Young Witch => Bane (Black Market) => Black Market deck (containing some choice cards from Dark Ages and Nocturnes, Peasant, Page and a potion-costing card) => move to a bigger table. Bigger table might cost more than $3 though.

Underworld - Landmark
When scoring, multiply your VP with -1.
Oh let's just start playing; we can read all the small text when we get to it.

Is that an event?

Cockroach Poker
Action-Attack

Set aside a card from your hand, face-down. Say what it is. Choose a player. They must say whether or not you are telling the truth. If they are correct, they choose, otherwise you choose:
  You return the card to your hand and they may pass you a copy of it from their hand, or
  They take the card into their hand.
