What do you mean? Do you mean that it costs $7 to buy? Sure thatís expensive; but potion cost cards tend to act even more expensive. And Bank costs $7 and is far less powerful.

*Edit* Oh, just noticed that itís an event, not a card!! That definitely changes things!

So the cheapest Castle is $3, but why stop there?

Ruined Castle

Overgrown Castle

Victory - Castle - Shelter

When you trash this, gain a Castle.

Fool's Castle
$2
Victory - Castle
Worth 4 VP if you have any other Castles, otherwise worth 0 VP.

Presumably when ordering the Castle pile by price, you have to place this one such that it's underneath Ruined Castle but not touching any other Castle?

Feels like there ought to be Mortgaged Castle with a debt cost, and Ostentatious Castle with overpay, too.

I was thinking of doing a Debt Castle, but overpay didn't occur to me...

Mortgaged Castle
11D
Victory - Castle
Worth 6 VP
When you gain this, gain a Victory card that is not a Castle.

Ostentatious Castle
$12+
Victory - Castle
Worth 7 VP
When you buy this, you may overpay for it. For each $1 you overpaid, +1 VP.

Where would the Alchemist's Castle, and Mortgaged castle fit in the stack? It says from lowest to highest. I'm assuming  Ostentatious Castle would be at the bottom because it costs twelve

Alchemists castle doesn't have a worth so it isn't a victory

You're right, I forgot. Let's say it's worth 2 VP.

I think you're taking this thread a bit too seriously...

Clearly the Castle pile should be multidimensional.

It's a little complicated, in that:

$X > <X>

while

$X ~ <X+k>, when k>0

It shouldn't be a severe problem for online Dominion, though.  Just need a partial ordering to filter out all "strictly more expensive than those revealed" and run a loop on it.  Will probably be less popular than Possession in multiplayer.

Dominion could introduce a supply "pile" which consisted of overlapping cards like in Seven Wonders: Duel, such that you can only buy cards which have been completely uncovered, not ones that have another partly on top.

I'm genuinely unsure if that's a really good or a really bad idea. (-8

I'm imagining a party where every card in your deck is literally (being played as) a Vassal.  I guess "party" has appeared on a card too, so one of them is the Cornucopia thing, and the Event version is "a lot stronger than the card" or something like that.
