Teasers!
« on: March 27, 2015, 09:17:46 am »
+71

Previews start Monday! As a special treat for the weekend, here are some teasers - bits of information about the expansion that don't actually tell you any cards. I will not be further explaining this stuff! Well not until after the set is out, and by then it shouldn't need much explanation.

Some things you will find in Dominion: Adventures:

- 22 dividing lines
- 8 big arrows
- 7 cards with 3 types
- 3 treasures, including an attack and a village
- 2 12-card piles, including a victory card worth 0 VP the turn you buy it
- +$3, +$4, and +$5
- a card that gives the 2nd player an advantage
- a card you can play when it isn't your turn
- a card that draws you 5 cards when Throned
- word counts: Supply: 15; Game: 4; Turn: 31; Token: 16.

Treasure based attack and village? Finally, we're getting blood money and hidden village.

Before the card you may show us the  small drawing at the bottom right of the cards ?

Uh-oh. I think Donald X. is trying to break all of our brains. Play a card on an opponent's turn? Keep track of how many turns have gone by after you buy a certain victory card? Villages in buy phase?!?!?

I have a feeling that once this expansion gets on Goko everyone's levels are going to drop way down. Still excited though.

Well, every game is still won by someone so if someone's level drops, someone else has to level up.

By that time, I'm sure Skynet will have become self-aware and we'll be in the midst of an apocalypse.

- a card that draws you 5 cards when Throned

Hrmmm

1. +2 cards, +1 per other [this card] in play?
2. If you have less than 5 cards, +5 cards? (nothing happens the second time)
3. Draw a card for this and every other card in play? (first one only draws for itself and the throne, not the phantom card)
4. Discard your hand and draw 5 cards? (you decide to keep the first redrawn hand)
5. The obvious one: +2.5 cards

Donald, I think you have commented on this elsewhere, but I can't find it.  Will Goko have the new expansion programmed so that the cards are available the day the physical sets are available in gamestores in the US?

How many hidden jokes/instances of thematic harmony are there in the new set?  (E.g., Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker.)

They (Making Fun) will not.

The physical version is still on track for April. Jay says April 18th on the site to be safe; it might come out earlier but he also might decide not to try to rush it and just stick with that date.

But even if the physical version is actually say a week late, MF will not have it then. They are still focused on getting out the new version of the main program. I am sure they will get Adventures up as fast as they can, but they will not have it in April.

- 4 Seaside
- 3 Intrigue, Cornucopia (including Princess)

- 1 Base

Cards with three types
- 11 Dark Ages (including 9 Knights; Dame Josephine has four types)

- 0 Base, Intrigue, Seaside, Alchemy, Prosperity, Hinterlands, Guilds, Promos

Treasures
- 8 Prosperity
- 3 Hinterlands

+$3, +$4, +$5*
- 2 Dark Ages (including Count)
- 1 Hinterlands
- ? Adventures
- 0 Base, Intrigue, Seaside, Alchemy, Prosperity, Cornucopia, Guilds, Promo
(* I only counted when it was written on the card, not variable +$)

Big arrows, second-player advantage, card that can be played when it's not your turn, card that draws you 5 cards when Throned*
- Adventures only
(* I only counted cards that would always draw a fixed 5 cards when Throned and that your deck had at least 5 cards)

Word counts: Supply
- 15 Adventures
- 6 Cornucopia (including 5 non-Supply piles)
- 4 Dark Ages (including 3 non-Supply piles)
- 2 Seaside, Prosperity
- 1 Promo
- 0 Base, Intrigue, Alchemy, Hinterlands, Guilds

- 12 Seaside
- 4 Hinterlands
- 3 Intrigue, Alchemy
- 2 Promo
- 1 Prosperity, Cornucopia, Dark Ages
- 0 Base, Guilds

Word counts: Token
- 16 Adventures
- 8 Guilds
- 4 Seaside
- 3 Prosperity
- 0 Base, Intrigue, Alchemy, Cornucopia, Hinterlands, Dark Ages, Promo

I tried to include notes where I felt the numbers might appear misleading.

I realize this is probably overkill.

Yes but the people who will benefit are those who've already played with the cards....

I wonder if the arrows are on the artwork and have something to do with the directions listed in the game blurb...florst?

The line separating on-play effects from other effects (see Moat, in the base set).

Hrmmm

2. If you have less than 5 cards, +5 cards? (nothing happens the second time)
3. Draw a card for this and every other card in play? (first one only draws for itself and the throne, not the phantom card)
4. Discard your hand and draw 5 cards? (you decide to keep the first redrawn hand)
5. The obvious one: +2.5 cards

If no others are in play, 1 only draws 2 cards each time.  The phantom card is not another card in play.  3 wouldn't count the phantom card on the second play either.  They would work if they counted like Conspirator instead.

5 doesn't really make sense. Dominion doesn't do fractions (always rounds them off) and doesn't keep a running tally of cards to draw like it does actions.

Some other possibilities:
- Crossroads-style wording
- Conspirator-style wording
- Variable draw based on Reserve mat, plus a way to add cards to the mat
- Variable draw based on the trash pile, plus a way to trash
- Draw based on hand size (maybe draw-to-x)

Some guesses:
- Action-Duration-Reserve
- Action-Attack-Reserve
- Treasure-Attack-Reserve (I'm thinking of that Treasure attack)
- Action-Victory-Reserve (I'm thinking of that Victory card worth 0VP when bought)
