King's Port
Action - $5
When you buy this, gain 2 King's Ports.
(This pile has 15 cards.)

Do these do anything when played, or is it strictly a pile manipulation thing?

Good catch. I was so focused on the silly parts that I forgot the Village part. Not that it matters in this thread.

Well, if they're Villages too, then I guess I would be more inclined to test it at $6 first as a balance hunch.

since we're making ruins
i did a remodel variant:

Quote
Wreck $0 Action - Ruins
Trash a card from your hand. For each $1 it cost, gain a Ruin.
and a chapel variant:

Quote
Desecrated Chapel $0 Action - Ruins
Trash any number of cards from your hand. For each card you trash, gain a Copper.
and a throne room variant:

Quote
Crumbling Throne $0 Action - Ruins
Play a Ruin from your hand twice.

Desecrated Chapel is a bit too good in a Ruins game, and could be decent with Estates regardless.

Wreck can trash Ruins with no drawback.  Maybe it should just gain one Ruins without cost scaling, but even then it still could become a god-tier Ruin after the pile is out.

Crumbling Throne is great just the way that it is IMO.

Anyway, idk about Desecrated Chapel.  Gain a curse, and if you do, trash up to two cards from your hand?  Trying to make it sometimes worth playing but mostly garbage, but people have chided me for trying to balance RBCIs before...

Fantasy Football
Landmark
When any player plays a card from a pile you have the randomizer of, +2 VP.
---
Setup: players each player in turn order takes a randomizer card corresponding to a Supply pile. When each player has taken a card, each player takes another card in reverse order. Repeat until each supply pile's randomizer had been taken.

I'm sure someone could do a better job of making a card with this theme, maybe there have been some, but here's one take.

I'm pretty sure this is a bad card but sometimes its hard to tell. I think situationally (where there's strong trashing and also maybe Triumph?) it's probably ok?

i mean, why not? I'd do Events but like half of them cost debt or are turn smoothers so that'd be kinda extra useless.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but putting your cube on a Project is not called "gaining" it, is it?

Possibly just "Place on of your cubes on a Project, following normal restrictions"?
