Then, each player shuffles their hand (including you) into their deck and draws 5 cards.
I will note that this is importantly different from "each player (including you) shuffles their hand into their deck". I'm not sure what happens when players get shuffled into opponents' decks. (-8

Isn't Farmhand the same as pawn?

Yes.  A Pawn is just a Farmhand, which is someone who fetches the farm animal of your choice.

Rebuild
Project
Cost: $5

When you buy this, gain two Overgrown Estates from their pile.

At the start of each of your turns, Victory cards cost $3 less (but not less than $0) until you gain one.

The first time you gain a Victory card each turn, set it aside.  After each shuffle, put all cards set aside in this way in your discard pile.  For each card set aside in this way at the end of the game: trash it and gain one costing up to $3 less.

I know which thread we're in, but even so:

Overgrown Estate doesn't have a pile for you to return it to!

In this game, they work like a Spirits pile.  And there is no "return" mechanic used here, you just need there to be two per player at the start of the game (or possibly more if RBCI mechanics increase the number of players, e.g., Jumanji...).

Since the introduction of Capitalism in Renaissance, I've been thinking it would be cool to have Adventures tokens but for card types, if it were possible to get cards that work with it. Even though it's in RBCI, I'm still glad that at least one other person has come up with the idea.

I mean, I did intend for it to be a RBCI, but I also put some thought into it.  So idk.

Actually, just change the cost to $5, and I bet it would work pretty well as-is. One alone would be weak, but once you've gotten about three or more, it could get stronger than lab.

Maybe.  It might be viable on some boards at $6, but idk.  I guess if there were such an enabling pile, it would be contested.  So $5 might be fair.

Not over-the-top bad, but the biggest issue is that all it does is make the whole game slower. The decision would be rarely be interesting strategically, so it would just be like Dominion that takes more turns to play the same game. It's also super unfair to someone who opens /. Like, really bad.

EDIT:  Lowered it to $2 because honestly, yeah.  Maybe $3 instead of $4 is ok, but might as well make it interesting on a 5/2?

I feel like this should have been done by now, but I wasn't able to find it.  Also, I tacked on some more mechanics just to make it more fair for some stupid reason:

Ruined Inheritance
Event
Cost: $2*

You may overpay for this.  For each $1 overpaid, you may move the top card of the Ruins pile to the bottom.

Set aside the top card of the Ruins pile and place your Inheritance token on it.

Thats not the worst idea ever. It still make estates slightly better occasionally.
