So technically, does Adventurer no longer exist?

R.I.P., he died doing what he loved: Searching for Gold in the new world. Unfortunately, he stumbled over a bunch of copper and fell to his death.

If you like the idea of searching for gold in the New World, head over to the themed kingdoms thread!

"There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die."

Hello.  Name's Bruce.  It's all right.  I understand.  Why trust a shark, right?

Is quite curious - Who is the mystical "Celestial Chameleon"?

Adventurer comes from the Latin root word 'Venio' alongside everyone's favorite Latin prefix 'Ad'. Venio means 'come', and Ad means 'towards or to'. Taken literally, the Latin word 'advenio' means to come to, or to come towards. From this phrase comes another similar Latin word from which we derive our modern meaning, "Adventura", which means Adventure or Venture.

In fact, Adventure and Venture are basically the same word. To Venture is "to start a risky or daring undertaking", and the literal meaning of Adventure is simply "to Venture out", or "to Venture towards". Put simply, An Adventure is simply a Venture with a goal or end result in mind.

In my day, Scout was a thing that existed and it was the worst.

Seriously, what is happening? Where is the relevant thread or threads that explains this?

Intrigue. Intrigue was fine. They can't all be the best versions of Dominion ever.

And Patrol is pretty good, often you'd happily pay $5 for a Smithy if it's the only source of draw.

It does touch 7 cards, so be sure to count your deck and apply the new shuffle rule if you have <7 cards!!!

no, first you count you deck, shuffle if you have less than 3 cards. Draw three cards.
Then, count your deck, shuffle if you have less than 4 cards. Do the Scout thing.

You gotta do that right, or your deck will explode and all your Patrol will be downgraded to Scouts.

Yeah. I've had a few weeks to grow accustomed to it, and I'm still not 100% convinced Intrigue really needed the update (and I'm not just saying that because I love Coppersmith). Base most certainly did, but Intrigue? Scout sucked, everyone knew that, but the other cards were all somewhat usable, even Secret Chamber (as a poor man's Vault with a wacky Reaction).

Ah well.
