Barracks -- Card That Attacks You From the Supply

New Version: Like Knights, the different Barracks cards are shuffled into the same pile. They (mostly) have the same cost, but different effects and (probably) names. Only the top card of the pile's auto-attack takes place.

This costs $4 instead of $3 because in a game with it and village, if this cost the same as village, everybody would buy Barracks and never buy Villages until the Barracks pile was empty, because everybody wants to be free of the annoying effect.
No, they don't. If your economy runs using treasures and mine doesn't, I'll want to buy Village rather than Barracks, because Barracks's presence in the supply hurts you and doesn't hurt me.

OK, fair point.

Mine does run using treasures though.

Not sure I like this card. It's just some attack card that nobody plays at all. Where's the fun in that?

It is also a supply pile that could run out in most games. That could change strategy too.

Maybe make it more like a knights pile, where every barrack does a small different attack? That could be fun too.

That's a fantastic idea! I think I'll do that.

Yikes! Now it's getting rather wordy. I liked the original simple attack better.

Possible name: Troll Village

Names are fun. If you're a mythology guy, you could go with humanoid creatures names, like Goblin Village, Orc Village, Giant Village, Skeleton Village, Triton Village, etc.

You could also have names indicating that these villages are bad places, like Ghost Town, Swamp Village, Volcanic Town, Flooded City, etc.

Just mocked up the original version of this card (Too lazy to do all the others). The only thing I changed was the cost which was reduced to 4. This should make for funner games.

I think you said this wrong. The cost in your card is $5, and the original cost is already $4.

Oops, looking at barracks 1. As for the cost I must have uploaded the wrong version. Fix that in a bit.
