#74 - Squire



By not including faces, I think this is a tip of the cap to all the nameless squires through the ages who faithfully served their knights.

We have now posted 300 cards. I'm going to take a minute and vent. It has been increasingly difficult to get my daughters together to process a batch of cards. Apparently they enjoyed making fun of the lesser art. Now I just get, "This is all good art, Dad." I have nearly run out of cards to post on a few occasions.

With 5 groups and 79 cards to go you can rest assured that we will finish. You can complain about a lot of things with our rankings, but you can't say we haven't been regular and diligent about posting cards. Hopefully my daughters will not be such pains about finishing. The last couple of groups have been very unpleasant to process and the commentary isn't very interesting once everyone has had to be brow-beaten into participating.
The important thing is to find something bad to say about every piece of Dominion art. Put those artists in their place!

#81 - Mining Village

My daughters say the climbing guy looks like Shadow Mario. I've never played a game with that character so I couldn't say. I just like the art.

In Super Mario Sunshine there's a villain called Shadow Mario. Is it likely that your daughters are familiar with a 14-year-old game?

We've done our very best!

Edit: My daughters are adamant that making fun of the art is far more interesting to them than saying nice things. I can't say I entirely disagree but I have tried to shift their focus to other areas of commentary, mostly unsuccessfully.

We have a copy of Mario Sunshine and I have seen my daughters playing it. Wii is the last console we bought, so all those games are still kicking around.

#73 - Trade



While trading for money is technically correct in concept, we'd have like to have seen trading for something else. Nice art though.

#72 - Triumph



The view angle is interesting. The first horse's face is a little odd perhaps due to the lighting.

#71 - Defiled Shrine



Neglected Shrine? Overgrown Shrine?

In defiling a shrine I think more of desecration, but we still like the art.

That's bad 3D art. How did this beat Dame Anna? Fairgrounds? Oh, the utter sadness...

I've beaten that game twice. I've gotten all of the Shine Sprites, sans a few that are blue coins.

My daughters: 'It just looks like a basket of fruit.'

Uh, yeah.

#69 - Hireling



My daughters said it looks like he's sitting on a couch with no legs. Whatever.

This art really resonates with me. I've always liked it.

The castle art continues with the varied and interesting sky colors. That is a fantastic castle.

I think it's pretty good 3D art.

I've never played any Grand Theft Auto games, but from what I've seen of them I think hireling looks like Nico Bellic.

I think this is from a dream sequence from Harry Potter where Sirius Black gets to boss around Lord Voldemort.

#66 - Chariot Race



She makes the Indy 500 look like a Roman Chariot Race now....

This could be straight out of Ben-Hur. I'm not happy they are remaking that movie by the way. It's one of my all-time favorites.

#65 - Advance



My daughters wondered why she wore her wedding dress for this occasion.

I think it is a great piece of art. I would have had it in my top 20.

That is the end of group E.

So you haven't actually given a score to all the cards yet?

All the cards have been given a score. But after I broke them up into groups, we lay out all the cards in a group and order them worst to best in that group and then make comments. I'm rarely able to get very far ahead in that department. All the groups are formed but the final order within the groups has yet to be determined.

#64 - Silver



This is the start of group D, 15 cards.

Silver Bells. Silver and Gold.

Did you know that in the Wizard of Oz, the book, Dorothy's slippers are made of silver and not rubies?

#63 - Herbalist



The guy almost looks like he's serving up some casserole. There is some nice green ectoplasm for sale.

I can't even think of Herbalist without thinking of this epic post: http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=10809.msg363315#msg363315

#62 - Crown



The window is a little odd. We love the crown.

I can't hear the word crown without thinking of this from Pollyanna:

The way she says the words 'crown thy good' has been seared into my brain forever.
