Fan Card: Emporium

I actually thought of this card a year or two ago, but I haven't gotten around to posting it until now for some reason.

Emporium:
+1 Buy
Gain a card costing up to $5 that is not an Emporium, putting it on top of your deck. Each other player may gain a card costing less than the card you gained that is not an Emporium.

When you buy this, play it.
Cost: $5
Action

EDIT: The other players' gaining is optional, and cannot gain Emporiums either.

I assume you intend that the other players choose what they gain? It's not clear either way. Either way though this should probably be an attack unless you make the gain optional. You can gain a $2 and it becomes a Junker.

Naw, man. By the rules, they get to choose what they gain. I mean sure, you could clarify that on the card, but hopefully it's not necessary.

Either way though this should probably be an attack unless you make the gain optional. You can gain a $2 and it becomes a Junker.

Agreed.

+Buy is not really necessary on a gainer that doesn't provide cash.  It will go unused too much, and the card is already providing a way to gain multiple cards per turn to the kingdom.

Other than that I like the card.

Also you probably are an expert if you buy two bureaucrats early.

I just realized that with both a +1 buy and a "when you buy this, play it", then if you get 5 cost reduction out, you can instantly buy out this whole pile. Maybe that's not a problem though; it's not easy to do.

But then again, if you do do it, you will gain 10 Emporiums, plus 10 of any other card costing up to $5. Like 5 Duchies. While your opponents cause the game to end by draining a 3rd pile, unless they take Coppers.
