looks like you added the + to make it look more than it is.
Yeah, basically. It was so minor it just got left in there, and I thought, why not? Just makes it look slightly better so why change it?

 Anyways, you'll be happy to know I'll be adding cards soon and reach 400, then I'll drop the "almost".

Hey, I've had this idea for years and never see it in an expansion...

EXECUTIONER

Cost : 9

Action, Attack

"Each opponent reveals their hand and must trash one card of your choosing."



Cool, yeah?  Expensive, terminal, and ugly.  :)  Putting it at an above-province cost makes for a hard choice, I think, as when you get to province buying levels, what boards would support a terminal card this aggressive?  And what if you hit this with a king's court?!  Moats and reactions are suddenly immensely more valuable, as are fast strategies to keep opponents from buying this card (and shuffling it through their deck to be played).

Hi there! Welcome to the forums.

Your card idea has in fact been suggested before (I think on BGG), but it's not a good card. Here are a few problems with it:

1) Stalemate Games. You trash all of your opponents cards, and the game restarts with no cards in hand.
2) Swingy. If you get lucky, you can trash your opponent's Executioner or Province early and get a huge advantage.
3) Discarding. If you play 5 of these then you can make an opponent trash through their whole hand. It is terminal, but with village support or in multiplayer games this is unfun.

I would suggest reading the Fan Card Creation Guide, sticked at the top of this subforum. It's full of great tips.

I have to agree with Theta. This doesn't really work for everything already mentioned. Warrior and Knight are already kinda hated, this would be a million times worse.

"Extremely expensive and extremely brutal attack" is one of what I would call the four "bad fan card archetypes". The others are "Strong cards that curse yourself", "Attack deflectors" and "Veto reactions". They come up so often because the idea is rather simple, but why they are bad isn't exactly easy to spot for inexperienced fan card designers. Been there, done that. Not to say that all of these are inherently doomed, but the most simple approach isn't working, that's for sure.

It helps a lot to read though Donald's stuff so that you start from a higher plateau and don't have to repeat all the mistakes (like trashing attacks without a Knights-like price range or a Saboteur-like downgrading).

Yeah, you're right. There's already a bad enough attack in the kingdom with Werewolf. :D

Huh, curiously Raiders, Werewolf and Necromancer ALL are attack cards (edit: Yeah, not technically, but Necromancer implies an attack on the board). Weird.
So, how do you play this kingdom?

Probably going to open Cobbler/Bard, by the way. Those are both cute. Oh wait, technically I just need to avoid buying Gold or Idol in this game to ignore the negative VP from Curses, right? I guess confusions are still pretty bad... Monastery is interesting, but doesn't that hurt too much? And can the player name Copper there? Early in the game, that's probably the best thing to do. Lots of revealing going on here, too.

Either way, I never really noticed Cobbler as a fan card before. It's neat.

Yeah, the game seems like a bit of a slog.  Cobbler-Bard definitely seems like the best opener. I might try to pick up a Fool later too so I can discard it with Cobbler. For me the big wild card is Crypt, it costs so you could pile it for Cobbler/Bard/Crypt, but all those Confusions might hurt you.
