This should be posted in the proper channel, regarding Enchantress:

I hereby require that the new Online version change the affected card's art to a pig.

Here's a low-priority idea that could be fun: a "puzzle" mode where people can try out/verify their solutions to puzzles.

Some important features for such a mode (probably obvious, but whatever):

* change the number of players
* toggle whether it's a "perfect shuffle luck" puzzle (ie have the computer shuffle, or set the order yourself on each shuffle)
* set the use of Colonies+Platinum/Shelters/Events/Landmarks outside of the recommended setup rules

For things like the infinite loop puzzle, you'd want to be able to add lines to the log describing key pieces of the state; eg once you have the hand you need, you'd dump the contents of your hand/the trash/your current buys and coins, then once you've executed the loop you'd dump the same stuff again, showing you increased your buys and coins, and the same cards are ready for you to do it again.

My only high-priority request that hasn't been mentioned is a kingdom chooser which can choose random while excluding certain cards (like you could do with Goko Salvager).
It's fine if it's casual-only.

It would be cool to have an interface for the bots so that interested people (like me  ::) - it's Java right?) could create their own bots. :-*

I'd enjoy a mode where 3 or 5 kingdoms are listed, and players strike ones they don't want to play on, and then they play whatever kingdom is left.  I think that wouldn't be too hard? Anyway, some version of isotropic's veto mode seems worth the effort, seems reasonably low effort high reward, although I didn't like how that veto mode was implemented exactly because it was a bit surgical.

It would be great if there's a button that pulls up the FAQ for all of the cards being used in the current game.

Considering SCSN is involved making this, we might see that come true.

Man, I can't see Stef or SCSN doing this, and adding all the bells and whistles people want too. There's a point where it should be enough.

I think custom avatars, a good workable interface, and rooms for matchmaking are all we really need. Tournament stuff and everything else can be added as needed later.

Who said there will be yellow cards at all? ;)

We surely won't implement everything that gets suggested, but since reading suggestions takes very little time, I'd say: keep them coming!

I still think that custom avatars shouldn't be possible at all, or at most something that you can purchase for actual money and/or win as a reward for tournaments and stuff, because if everyone has a custom avatar, things can get out of hand super easily, especially when it's a small company handling everything.

The world didn't seem to burn down when Salvager supported this feature. There will be some spam and some bad avatars, but a Report button and a half dozen volunteer mods and the problem is mitigated.

Desktop or push notifications, such as those Steam or Lichess.org use. When the Dominion client is minimized, I still want to be notified if someone challenges me to a game or if it's my turn. Currently, you have to periodically check back on the client if you want to be notified of it, which means that many times people have sent me challenges that I haven't responded to.

It actually does make noise when that happens.  But no one has the sound on in MF's client.

After playing a game against someone who used every curse word he knew and directed them towards me for the crime of getting super lucky in a Scrying Pool mirror (by not buying treasure on a Fishing Village board, derp), I kinda don't feel like custom-avatars-or-not will be difference on whether users will be capable of being abusive towards other users in some way, so might as well enable them if you're not going to go 100% Hearthstone and disable chat also.

(2p games only) When one player has achieved guaranteed victory by having more than half of the available VP, maybe display a message to the losing player and make the resign button more prominent for them?

Obviously there are a lot of kingdoms where it's not as simple as "I have half of the printed VP in the Supply, my victory is guaranteed" but sometimes the game does get to a state like that, the trailing player doesn't know they have no mathematical chance, and the player in the lead needs to take a few turns to empty 3 piles, or hit $8 a couple more times, or whatever. At that point, there is nothing interesting for either player to do, so it'd be in both players' interest to end the game now.

If the "Play All Treasures" Button does not actually play all your treasures, I think it should say so on the button very clearly. Maybe some type of color change or something. This was quite annoying: http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=15565.0

Alternatively there could actually be a "Play All Treasures Button" with a cautious Treasures button in the normal place, but this one somewhere else. Sometimes I just want to play all my treasures including all alternate treasures.

I would happily do without a "play all treasures" button in games involving Grand Market, Mint, Mandarin, Counterfeit &Co., if I were given an option.

Another solution I see for this would be to require the player to click on a Begin Buying button before starting to buy anything. This would also prevent stuff like that example you noted in the other thread about Swindling the opponent's Estate, as well as cases of buying Borrow before playing your treasures.

I think the simpler solution is to have the '+' button on swindler be a different color than the '+' button when you gain cards yourself. In fact you could have a different color for gaining, buying, and sending cards to your opponent. (not sure how many other mechanics I'm missing that are unique here, so there may not be enough colors for all of them).
