Abominable Snowman

Turn your Journey token over (it starts face up). Then if it’s face down, +$1. If it’s face up:
  • +$20
  • +5 Buys
  • Each other player reveals their hand and trashes a card you choose
  • For the rest of the game, you cannot turn your Journey token face-up

Eh, it really doesn't. Beside the fact that it doesn't even have a cost, everyone would just buy it as soon as possible and then be ahead. A much less interesting version of the magic lamp thing where you need 6 unique cards.

Indeed. It's solely intended as a "Snowy Giant", not as in any way actually playable.

Wait, so it always attacks after the first time?  This anti-snow.  It's like a lava monster.

Socially Distanced Lands
- Reserve-Action-Victory-Curse

Put this on your tavern mat

------------------------------------------

When you would exile this, instead put this onto your tavern mat.

------------------------------------------

If you have any tokens at the end of your turn, you may call this to spend  1 token, and move this into exile

--------------------------------------------

At the end of the game, if this card is:

In the supply, this is worth -2 to all players

In your deck,  this is worth -4

On your Tavern mat, this is worth 1

In Exile, +10

Edit: Fixed wording

This can never end up in exile. To do that, you must call it, putting it in play. The effect then says "move this from your tavern mat..." so it doesn't move. It gets discarded and ends back in your deck, doing nothing.

Really bad card ideas.
I was pointing out that what was clearly the "really bad idea" was not the same as the "card" here. I did not suggest a fix to make it a better idea, I pointed out that it wouldn't function (badly) as intended, it would function (badly) in an unintended way.

It would function (badly) in the intended way if "move this from your tavern mat into exile" were replaced with "put this on your Exile mat".

That was a brain fart - now fixed. The intent was it be mega-powerful once, then... nothing. In the spirit of Snowy Village.

Might be easier to just have them dispose of the token altogether.  Then it's never face-anything.

Snowy Ruined Library

Draw up to 7 cards in hand, skipping any Action cards you choose to; set those aside, discarding them afterwards. Ignore any further draws you would get this turn until your cleanup phase.

The Snowy and Ruined mostly cancel out, but not completely.
