Royal Ring, Action $5
You may play an Action card from your hand.
You may replay an Action card you have in play that you played this turn.

(This lets you play infinite cards from your hand.)

Yeah, this is explicitly an Island spin-off in name and in what it does.  It obviously can't cost $2 or $4, so hopefully it's competitive with Tunnel.  Well, Tunnel sucks except for that one time that it doesn't, so I guess it's fine.

Poor Village
Action - Ruins - $0
+2 Actions
Reveal your hand. -1 Action for each Action card revealed, down to 0.

How to make Poor Village useful:

Kingdom includes Prince, Ambassador, Lighthouse, Mandarin, and Smithy.

1. Make sure your deck has exactly 5 treasures. Prince a Poor Village and a Smithy
2. Start your turn with a hand of 5 treasures and play your Princed Poor Village.
3. Play your Princed Smithy
4. Play your turn.
5. Play your 5 treasures and buy a mandarin, plus whatever else you want.

If the supply ever runs out of Mandarins, Ambassador some back while your opponent(s) has Lighthouse in play.

Limit it to discarding non-Victory cards and it's actually a pretty decent card, depending on the cost.

This isn't that bad, imo; get a province in coffers for trashing your deck? in the mean time, you can troll your opponent? I'd buy this card.

You might buy it on Turn 2, sure, but it's not especially balanced or flexible or whatever.  Maybe weird combos exist, but yeah.

EDIT:  "Really bad" as in game design, not as in overall power.  The most common interpretation, though many are the other or both.

Do these do anything when played, or is it strictly a pile manipulation thing?

Good catch. I was so focused on the silly parts that I forgot the Village part. Not that it matters in this thread. It's probably better this way.

But hey, while we're at it:
