You know, Champion is basically a card that (overly) simplifies the late game but early game decisions and luck still matter. Donate on the other hand (overly) simplifies the early game.

In practice, I don't mind the effect Champion has on the game. I might mind how Donate affects the game.

Does Donate really simplify the early game? You've still got to figure out when to buy it, what cards you're adding to your deck to keep, etc.

Put another way, I think that Donate isn't any more "broken" than Chapel. They are both super powerful trashers that are usually must-buy and thankfully easily accessible in cost. They don't constitute a single dominant strategy in and of themselves because all they do is trash. They give you super slim decks with exactly what you want in them, but they don't dictate what that strategy is. Donate is not "one clear strategy". Like Chapel, it opens the door for a variety of other strategies.

uh card-shaped thing.
This is now the standard term to refer to events and cards.

Landmarks too. And it may or may not include -1 card and -1 coin tokens.

I just played and won with a Golden Bishop deck on a Kingdom with Mercenary. How I did it: I Princed a Menagerie.

I played a Scrying Pool deck, drew my whole deck. I bought a Nobles (only village), and then protected it from Swindler attacks by buying Doctor, overpaying 1 and topdecking it.

How did you topdeck the Doctor?

The Nobles, as I'm sure you're completely aware.

What?  How did the Nobles help you top-deck the Doctor?

1. Seprix draws deck. No cards in draw or discard.
2. Seprix buys Nobles. Now Nobles is in the discard.
3. Seprix buys Doctor, overpaying by 1. Overpay happens before Doctor gets gained, so Nobles is still the only card in the discard.
4. Reveal Nobles to Doctor overpay, put it back on top.

This guarantees the Nobles will be part of the next hand, which protects it from Swindler attacks.

Just pulled off this: played lots of Scrying Pools until opponent's Champion was on top, then played Swindler. This was followed by a resignation.

I trashed a Province with Stonemason to gain a Duchy and a Baker, clinching the 3 Pile win by 1 point.

I recently Stonemasoned a Province for a Distant Lands and a Stonemason to 3 pile. I didn't even get to play the Distant Lands.

I just played a game where I used a Band of Misfits as a Feast (to turn it into a Duchy on my last turn to win).

Once I, uh . . . was going to Expand a Stonemason for a Duchy until I realized there were only 2 duchies left, so I Stonemasoned the Expand instead.

My son made a curses-and-ruins game (his favourite type.. Ambassador, seahag, possession, Ratcatchers, Venture, Bank, golem, Marauder, rats, can't remember the last), and I wanted to try Wolf's Den (wrote it on a Post-It note - we don't have Empires yet).

Final scores: -2 (husband noticed the 3-pile sneaking up and managed to get enough spoils to buy two provinces)/-21/-23.

We emptied curses, ruins and Catratchers.

On our recent European Empires release party, we played a game with Donate, Wolf Den and Black Market. It made for very weird gameplay.

To guarantee a TP on turn three I suppose, which is pretty good.

Yesterday I built an engine consisting of entirely of eight copies of Overlord and some treasure*. I thought Seprix would like to know.

Overlord is so good, considering 8 debt really isn't *that* much more than $5. In more than one game I've opened Overlord / nothing when I wanted a $5 cost opener on $4/$3.
