Inheritance + Island (or Great Hall or Mill)

If you use Inheritance on Island, are your Estates worth extra VP?

And if so, are they worth 2 VP, or 3 VP (since they "gain" the abilities of the card, they should "gain" the +2VP on top of their normal 1 VP, to make them worth 3VP).

Unless the VP value of the card is not one of the "abilities" of the card?

(Or Nobles with cost reducers)

Likely to prevent this sort of thing from being a question.

That part is good too, but what happened was, if you can Inherit Islands, you do it. Nothing competes.

You instantly spike to 6 VP and give yourself a pile of $2 Duchys that remove themselves and a Copper from your deck. In most games this significantly increases the tota available points on the board to the point that it overwhelms not doing that quite a lot, not to mention the useful and cheap pseudo trashing.

Assuming that without the no-victory limitation, Inheritance would have also added the VP value; then Estates inheriting Islands become Duchies that don't stay in your deck. They'd just be worth too much VP for the cost.

sure thats strong but if i inherit something that makes my deck actually kick off like a workers village i just buy 6 of the estates while you maybe get 2 of them. and then i have a deck full of villages while you have 3vp islands.

They get a ~10 point boost on you and a thin deck? Like obviously Island isnít literally always the absolute best option but you can kinda see how it would be really good too often.

And Inheritance comes with an Island - the one you set aside is yours at the end.

Maybe it wouldn't have messed up the game for a certain caliber of player; it seemed like surely it would be automatic for many players though. And not "this is so fun, us all doing this," just, "well I have to do this."

Briefly there was a version of Inheritance that only changed Estates on your turn. That version allowed Victory cards, and of course the VP didn't add - at the end of the game, it's not your turn.
