Continuing my reusing real names series:

Tracker
Action - $2

+1 $
If this is the 100th card you've played this game, +20 VP tokens.

Menagerie
Action - $4

Reveal three cards from the Menagerie deck. Select one of them to play, leaving it there.
Put the three revealed cards onto the bottom of the Menagerie deck.
---
Setup: Make a Menagerie deck of 10 or more unused Actions, from Menagerie.

Can't wait until every card before Menagerie becomes an entire expansion, and then we can iterate on this again starting around the year 2100 or so.

EDIT:  Sucks that we'll all be dead, though.

All right! I just wondered about possible snow cards, like;

Snoworkshop

Gain a card costing up to 4$.
reveal a snow from your hand; +1 Action

4$ Action - Snow

this is somehow specific, but an example that would work by itself..

Never the less, had you ever some thoughts about modifying the base card supplies? Not talking about tokens but cards!

Clearly "Snoworkshop" should be "gain 4 cards costing up to $4; you can't gain any more cards this turn".

Would it be possible to play dominion without normal supply piles? As in, you substitute Events/Projects/Landmarks/Ways/Other Non-Supply Cards in for supply piles?

Cardsless Dominion is a little too Brain Sparks Meme for me in real life.  But not too much for RBCI.

Troll(ololololol)



Card image: either a photo of Rick Astley from that video or a photo of the guy from the  Trolololol video

Card Text:

Each other player chooses one:

They may reveal a "meme" card from their hand. If they do, they gain a curse on top of their deck, and exile a copy the highest value card in their hand. If they can't, they discard down to 2 cards in hand. Either way, they receive whichever Boon is at the top of the Boon pile. If there aren't any curses left, players must trash a treasure other than Silver from their hand, and they don't get a Boon.

Setup: Setup the kingdom with 11 supply piles. If there are any cards that cost $5 in the Kingdom, then one of those is the "meme" pile. If there are no $5 cards in the Kingdom, then the "meme" pile is whatever supply pile the players agree is the best.

Notes:

- This card would have 9 cards in its supply pile just because.

- I haven't play-tested this or anything, but my guess is that it should cost like $7 + Potion or something. There might even be a way to add in some really screwy overpay mechanic on top of this.

- If players discover a card other than the OG meme card is the best, then they can agree to change the meme card in the middle of the game.

This might actually be an interesting card to play with! It's weird, but it might work, with a few adjustments -- sort of a reverse-order Guide. Perhaps make it a cantrip, like Guide, and change the wording to Throne-proof it (e.g. You may put this on your Tavern mat, if you did, take an extra turn after this one).

It in fact is still super broken even after throne proofing. In particular, anything that lets you change the gain location of a card (watchtower, royal seal, artisan, etc) immediately breaks it by putting it anywhere that isn't your tavern mat.

Midas Touch Action

Reveal cards from the top of your deck until you reveal a card costing or more. Trash it and gain a Gold to the top of your deck. 

_____________________
When you gain this, reveal a Province from your hand. If you do not, return this to the Supply.



(This is so that you can't gain this until you have a deck that can actually be hurt by the touch).

Sure, there's the occasional game where it's broken. That happens with actual Dominion cards, too, and it's super fun when it does, IMO. Besides, there are fewer cards of that category than there are Throne Rooms (I think), and it breaks the game less with those cards than with Throne Rooms.

No, all it takes is a single Watchtower, Royal Seal, Summon, Transmogrify, Artisan, Sleigh, Way of the Seal, etc, to easily take 10 turns in a row with this. It's not just broken, it's basically an instant win for the first person to buy one if any of those cards are in the Kingdom.

The solution is to find a way to re-work it so that calling it is what gets you the extra turn; so that you can't bypass the penalty by changing the gain location.
