Out of my fan card thread, I'm predicting I'll need to change 15-20 names because they are used in Nocturne.

If you have a fan card you want to be created, just post about it here! I'd love to take a look at it.

Well at minimum you'll probably want to change "Heirloom".

It will be a normal size expansion.

It will contain cards.

At least one of the cards will have the word "Action" on it.

Most of the cards will have "Dominion" on the reverse.

Not if the a future Dominion expansion uses dice!

It will likewise contain meeples, a spinner and monopoly money.

I was hoping for a rondel and tokens representing different goods, ranging from raw materials to finished products.

I'm thinking a metric ton of miniatures, some kind of zombie kitten Cthulhu, a collaboration with a webcomic artist and a multi-million-dollar Kickstarter campaign.

Prediction: There will be at least one "ghost" or "haunted" card that forces each other player to top deck cards from their hand.

I'm rather new here and pretty late to the conversation I think, but commenting on the -1 action/buy idea, I think it can work with another thing I considered might be neat if it was ever implemented. The basic idea would be transformation of resources.

So if a card had -1 action, -1 coin to start, it could then allow transformation of actions/buys/coins into the others. Maybe it would need to let you play money like black market.
So you have 6 actions at the end of a turn and 16 coins, but only one buy? Maybe x number of actions can turn into one buy, and into whatever the - cost of the coin was to buy double province.

This could essentially make kingdoms with no engine into an engine using big money and converting the excess money into actions/buys. Would this actually beat big money? Who knows.


A second idea would be similar to overpaying but be "overplaying" So if you use two actions, a card does something extra? Or a card may be returned to hand which also costs 1action. So if you have 3 actions, you can play it twice. Once to play, once to return it, another to play it again.

Well, there are already lots of cards that transform one particular resource into another particular resource. Hamlet turns Card into Action and Buy, Storeroom turns Card into Card and Coin. For a long time there were suggestions about turning Coin into Card, and then we finally got Storyteller. I think someone somewhere else made a list of the possible transformations and which ones had and hadn't been used. I think the remaining transformations haven't been used because they'd be useless on a lot of boards. Action to Something Else transformations would be useless on boards where there's no way to get surplus actions, and even if there is, often you'll buy just enough +actions to play all your terminals and no more. Diadem turns Action into Coin, but it was probably made into a Tournament Prize because of how niche it is. Buy to Something Else transformations would be even more niche, probably.

Actually, I don't think we've seen Coin to Action or Coin to Buy transformations. Those could potentially be useful.

Travelling Fair turns coin into buys.
Villa turns coin into actions.

Ah, yes, good point. It didn't occur to me to consider the Buy phase as well. So it looks like the only ones that haven't been used are the Action to Something and Buy to Something ones, which, as I already said, would be rather niche. Though admittedly, it would occasionally be useful to turn all those extra Buys you got from your Grand Markets into something else.

Action to Something Else transformations

All terminals are practically that.

And almost all cards and events transform your buy into something (the exceptions being events that give +1 Buy, Forum, and arguably Villa).

Expedition turns Coins and a Buy into Cards, too.
