Moat*
Bureaucrat
Militia
Bandit

Masquerade (although passing around the screen may be fun flavour)

(Smugglers is fine but game logs would be extra important)
Ghost Ship

(Possession is fine but perhaps a different wording would be more appropriate)

Watchtower**
Bishop
Contraband

Rabble ^
Vault
Goons

Horse Traders*
Tournament (# for on play, but unambiguous for Followers)
Young Witch #

Duchess
Fool's Gold

Mandarin **,#,^ (Only incompatible with Crown: if you gain a Mandarin on a turn that isn't yours and you have two of Crown, Overlord acting as Crown, and an Inherited Estate acting as Crown in play)

Margrave

I don't see how pass-and-play is really much better than solitaire. You can't see what the other players did on their turns unless there's some kind of turn replay feature. If you want pass-and-play, play Scrabble or something.

You know what would be great for pass-and-play? Kingdom Builder. Does the Kingdom Builder app have pass-and-play?
This ends up happening in the IRL version anyways... having to ask what each player did, so same difference here if it's between a game log or animation.

If people actually announced cards they were playing and buying like it says to in the rules, then this wouldn't be an issue in real-life games.

Someone's testy. :P

If someone's taking a long turn, they would rather just be told "I bought a Province and Duchy", rather than having to pay attention for a minute just to get a few seconds worth of relevant info.

I really would like to love the offline play. Hot-seat and LAN-play would be really nice. However, I am a bit worried about bugfixes.

Another point that would be great, is to have an interface to write AIs.
