Themed Kingdoms

I thought there was a thread about this already, but apparently it was just a contest.  So here is such a thread!  Post Kingdoms that are particularly flavorful or theme-y, then maybe discuss what you might actually do on such a board.  I present:

Chivalry

There's a lot going on for the Chivalry board, and ultimately I think it gets messy no matter what you do.

No trashing is the defining feature, so timing a Dame Anna gain can just win you the game altogether. Otherwise, I think you have a strong incentive to get to Champion as fast as you can plausibly manage, then use Nobles you scooped up along the way for draw and figure out how to score from there. You can't really go for Castles early or without Champion; half of them are vulnerable to Knight attacks and your deck will go nowhere with 10+ dead cards and no nonterminal draw. You also don't have a lot that can help you win Tournament fast, even though fully four of the Prizes matter here (don't forget the Champion / Diadem mega combo, especially with Crown!!!). I think once your Champion is up you evaluate if you go for 1 Province then Castles or just all Provinces based on the game state.

Fun fact: you can Prince any Prize other than Diadem, but you probably will have trouble setting that up here.

I would probably get 3 fv, 3 baker, 3 butcher, 1 spice merchant and one forager. Orchard makes this worth 12. I don't think vineyards is a thing because you can just mill provinces with butcher.

Cthulhu board: This one is actually kinda nuts. Sacrifice is the star of the show here, turning all those damn Ruins into engine fuel to the point where I wonder if you can actually make a nontraditional engine fire out of these pieces using Sacrifice as your only source of plus Action. Ultimately the lack of +Buy kills it, but with Haunted Woods and Cultist chains for draw, Conspirator for payload, it almost had something to it. Sad.

You'll want to buy Curse opportunistically, probably one time after you dud due to too many Ruins. There's a cool thing you could probably do with Altar or Graverobber and Ritual where you gain a Curse to get points, then use Altar to gain a $5 and trash the Curse, etc, but who knows how well that actually works you know. This probably ends up just not being a super fun board. BUY HAUNTED WOODS.

Flava Flav: It's a Vineyard board! I think the piles you want 3+ of are definitely FV, Butcher, Baker. maaaaaybe Wine Merchant (keep some out of the way on the mat!), and probably Forager. I would honestly consider skipping Spice Merchant in lieu of three Forager for the bonus even if they end up being dead weight? I dunno man. HoP can't be that bad here, either, but just as an Action gainer that you Butcher into something else late.

Well, there is Altar to gain extra things, and Graverobber lets you get stuff that you've trashed previously.  You can also use Possession as pseudo-+Buy.

You can get more than one gain a turn to get components, but thy don't synergize with the payload well (Conspirator in particular basically demands +Buy to be worth it), and terminal space is limited and inconsistent. So it's probably not going to do better than Cultist + modest thinning / cleanup + money and regular greening.

Same here. Pretty much all my designed themed kingdoms have fan cards, and really wouldn't work as well without them.

"White versus black"

Or just chess would suffice. There are a lot of chess terms hanging around in all those dominion cards.

Mill is when you sacrifice your queen along with a pawn for $2 because there's no Dominion card named Queen.

Cool ideas on this thread you guys! How about Silver Spectacle (Events of Terror):

Squire
Amulet
Catapult/Rocks
Merchant
Masterpiece
Feodum
Trader
Noble Brigand
Storyteller
Festival

Raid
Conquest

I think I would include Colony and Platinum. Catapult your Masterpieces? Fail, they revealed a Trader. Buy Raid and then Conquest (I would)? Is Noble Brigand gauranteed to hit silver yet? Either way, that Silver pile will be empty. Wait, did Raid just gain me Silvers for the Silvers I played with Storyteller? Wait, is Raid actually good?

The Forum's thoughts?

Well, being a Mormon myself, many of these cards seem related to our religion and/or several things people think to be true of Mormons (The sacred grove is a historical site for the church, we have temples all over the world, we serve 2 year long missions, Joseph Smith was a mason, people think we have Harems of multiple wives, etc...).  That's my guess.  Mormon themed

That could be fun. It would make Broke AF even sloggier because it’s something lousy to swindle Gold into.

Broke AF should have Borrow in it too.

Ok. Wow. I'm impressed that you are trying to make GOOD kingdoms to PLAY.  I'm certainly not going there.

How about Indiana Jones?
But my "short-list" of decent options was almost 50 items long, so I decided to break it down by movie, with each kingdom card in chronological order, and no repeats.

Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark
Raider
Thief
Ill-Gotten Gains
Scheme
Inn
Amulet
Market
Rats
Island
Warehouse
* Museum

Indiana Jones: Temple of Doom
Urchin
Village
Feast
Secret Cave
Quarry
Temple
Cultist
Possession
Sacrifice
Bridge
* Ritual

Indiana Jones: Last Crusade
Doctor
University
Library
Crypt
Wharf
Castles
Counterfeit
Conspirator
Knights
Relic
* Quest

I wasn't trying to just hit major plot points. "counterfeit" made the cut because the Ming vase was one of the funniest parts of the third and final movie.

A different word than, pronounced differently than, and unrelated to Gollum, thank you very much.

(I mean, I dunno, I think it's funny when people use Wharf for Star Trek kingdoms. But Golem/Gollum confusion really grates my garters.)

When you play this, each other player closes their eyes, and then you may gain a card costing up to $4.
When you trash this, each other player trashes all of the Bridge Trolls in their deck, and Tower's effect no longer applies.
