I notice that exchanging fails if the thing you're trying to exchange for isn't available. Hypercube's Mirage would be pretty awesome once the Duchies ran out!

You can also exploit the lose-track rule in conjunction with Royal Seal, Watchtower, Tracker, Travelling Fair, Stonemason, or maybe some other things I'm forgetting.

So here's one that you could actually play (without relying on Lose Track interactions):

Mirage
Action-Ruins
Cost: $0

+1 Card
+1 Action
+$1
Discard a card.
At the end of your turn, +2 Debt

Grand Vizier
Action-Duration, $6P

For the rest of the game, when the player to your left would make a decision during one of your turns, they reveal their hand and you
make the decision for them.

EDIT:  Originally, Bartender sent Reserve cards back to the Tavern directly.  Both to balance the power with Town Drunk and to avoid infinite loops with Royal Carriage, I changed it.
Trying to balance cards in RBCI is against the rules. Keep the balancing for another thread.

I don't think this is actually a rule...
Really Balanced Card Ideas, no?

Doubling down on that Grand Vizier idea, one for Solo Whist fans:

Abundance Declared
Project, $0

For the rest of the game, you play with your hand visible to all other players and the player to your left makes all decisions for you.
At the end of the game, double your score.

Fireworks

Action - $3

Reveal 4 cards from your deck to your opponents without looking at them. For each Fireworks in play, name a type or cost, and your opponents must point out all of the revealed cards with the named type/cost. Then, up to 4 times: Pick a card. If it costs more than the previously picked card (or is the first picked card), play it. Otherwise, stop and discard the remaining cards.

Who would have guessed that it wouldn't be the Sages nor the Priests who would lead us to Nirvana, but the Traders, with a little help from their blue dog?

A project can be built by more than one person, so it needs to be worded so that each player who built the project gain the card. So how about "you gain a copy of the returned card."

Does it not know that you gained a card just because you topdecked it afterward?

Weird, I must have replied thinking that I was looking at the latest post, not realizing that there was one more page of posts since; thus making my post have no context at all. I was replying to Mirage and the exchange mechanic thing.

Plus hypercube already posted the exact same thing.

Hmm. When Capitalism became known, people started designing Communism projects.

But now I'm wondering what a Lycanthropy project that gives you Full Moon as a permanent effect would have to cost. (-8

Way too variable, legitimate RBCI overall.  Stupid powerful with Werewolf (can play for free because it's Night, does both things because it's Action and Night).  Pretty good synergy with Night Watchman if you have any sort of Lab, Seer, etc.  Monastery, Cobbler, Devil's Workshop and the like couldn't care less...  Vampire only marginally cares if you might get it in before the shuffle.

"You may play Night cards during your Action phase at the cost of 1 Action" would make it a pretty derpy Project, because usually you wouldn't care.  If they all gained the Action type and lost the Night type, that would be an example of the elusive Project-Ruins.

That one's actually worth having, isn't it? You'd pick a victory card and get an Island-like effect.

I think you still shuffle immediately after reordering your discard pile slightly.  That is, you don't set aside the chosen card and put it on top of the discard pile after shuffling.
