Ok, yeah.  That is the worst card idea ever.  /thread

I'm going to take that as a compliment, I think.

Most of the abilities work, it would just... take a very very long time to resolve.

Does the card come with a microscope to read all that text?

I would do Africa, but honestly I'm expecting Donald to do an entire expansion at this point.  Joking/not joking.

Good news, fam:

Comic requested by Pyan.

You can put tokens on tokens now.  There are also Morning, Brunch, Naptime, and Brunch Night phases now.  It's easy, though - Morning, Brunch, Action, Naptime, Buy, Night, Cleanup - it's just MBANBNC.  New players have no trouble picking it up in playtests, so we're pretty happy with it.

Translation errors in Dutch translations have been slowly increasing with each expansion, with the newest couple of expansions being 100% mistranslated. The Dutch rules of Dominion: Brunchtime are a widely esteemed science-fiction novel that has put DXV and the Dutch translators in a long-running judicial dispute over who has intellectual property over said novel.

Due to all English words being used as card names in Dominion, DXV has invented a large repository of new words, such as 'Chancellscout'.

Each copy of a Dominion base set  now contains implantable mantis shrimp eyes so people can identify the colours of some of the many new types from eachother.

Some of them are contradictory, though...

You get to... pick? I suppose that's how that would work.

One of those could leave. There are a few other instructions that I think are hard/impossible to trigger but I left in for fun, like "take the VP from the Hold The Line Supply pile" and "Worth 1VP per Castle you have" and the various Setup phrases.

I scanned the All Cards link for horizontal lines, copied most of them into a text document, sorted them alphabetically, then moved some sections around to logically orient them. Maybe 30 minutes total.

I think this is a terminal Gold for me every time. Unfortunately that's strictly worse than some s. On the other hand, certain people could amass enough for a Colony.

Is wearing a hat over your token cheating?
