When you buy this, you may overpay. If you do, freeze it, placing an Ice token on it for each $1 you overpaid.

This uses Gazbag's Freeze/Ice tokens mechanic. You can buy this instead of a Duchy if you're in the $6-$7 range to cause it to miss the shuffle.

edit: withdrawing this; see downthread for new entry

That's strictly better than Duchy.

that's fine, it's a filler entry until i work out how i want to make a Wonder. If i'm really hard pressed i'll just add "in games using this, this replaces the Duchies"

I like the mechanic, the flavor and the idea of your card, but if I understand it correctly, would that mean that when you gain Glade in Fall you will have 3 junk cards in your deck which have a net score of a mere 1 VP?
That's sort of the point. You're supposed to buy it earlier in the game. Plus, since it still nets you vp, it might be useful for pileouts.

I think I got the point, but as it is, the alternatives to gaining Glades in fall are too good. So, that forces players either to ignore it completely, or buy it early. I think it would be more interesting, if there is a still an incentive left to gain Glades late in the game.

I disagree. I think the whole "buy victory cards early" is an interesting enough concept on its own. Muddling it with "but also buy this late game like usual" just weakens the idea.

The concept of Gardens is "have a huge deck." Muddling Gardens with ", or if you have less than 15 cards this is worth 5vp" is totally besides the point and weakens the idea.

I kind of agree with both of you. I mean, you can have it be much better to buy it in the early game, but I don't think you need quite as much of a punishment when buying it later on. I'd make it one curse when buying it in fall or winter. One curse vs two horses is plenty of motivation to buy it early, but it still does something for you if you buy it later.
(I don't think emptying piles is enough. If there's a cursing attack in the kingdom, the curses will probably empty anyway, otherwise, they probably won't empty anyway.)

Sanctum • Wonder • Most steps at end of game: 4VP • $3 per step, 4 steps (2-3 player); $3 per step, 6 steps (4-6 player)

Build a step: Discard a Build card and pay the cost of a step.

On Completion, most steps built: Put your deck and discard pile into your hand and trash any number of cards from your hand, then discard your hand;

All others, +2 Coffers / step

What's a build card? Glad you asked:

Build cards are an additional supply pile costing between $3 and $5. It works like Young Witch where it adds a pile to the Supply, rather than like Obelisk, which chooses a pile from the Supply.

Wonder concept was originally made by Tables here and was left pretty open ended. I branched off of X-tra's concept of it with a couple modifications: 1 - steps all cost the same. This makes it so you don't have to care which side you start on for filling in cubes and simplifies what the cost of a step is; 2 - getting rid of the potion-esque builder cards in favor of an additional pile that you just have to discard a card from. I kept the concept that building a step does not cost a Buy (unless the wonder would specify it costs a buy).

The most steps rewards are given to everyone who has the most steps done (so ties, they both get the event-y bonus and the VP).
The VP is given at the end of the game regardless of whether the wonder is completed - if six players all added one step, it's a wash, everyone gets 4VP.

Let me know what's unclear with this, i think i covered everything. IRL printing, i'd do the wonder card front+back printing, so on one side it's 4 spaces, the other, 6 (you can tell which side is which down by the art byline). As far as marking who built what, I'd suggest supplying (6) 8mm cubes in each color, each player gets a color. For reference, that's Terraforming Mars sized cubes, not Dominion's Project sized cubes (which are 10mm)

Update: change the "most steps" text to be clearer, it's roughly the same as Donate (except it happens during the turn due to space constraints); did not update the images because time constraints

The “discard, revealed” wording is only used/needed when discarding multiple cards at once. If discarding a single card (Mountebank, Cutpurse, etc); “revealed” isn’t necessary.

Thank you; the card post has been updated with the unnecessary wording removed.

In theory: A card from the Supply that costs up to more; e.g. .
In practice: Either you take a Randomizer card costing more, or if you can't find it, discard an Action card with a copy in play and then you get one costing up to more.
Finally, after some futile attempts you will get a 痛 token.

Aquila's post doesn't seem to definitively answer this. I assume that you get something that costs up to $2 § (though I really can't imagine why you would want to trash Doppelgänger in the first place).

That is purely for flavor. You gain a second one with it, and then you have a doppel.

Sorry about that, I didn't realise I hadn't put this on the first post of my thread. Here's what I think:

Quote
For abilities that care about costs: this is another different kind of cost to join Potion and Debt. You can't remodel a $ cost card into a [ ] or $[ ] cost or vice versa, or [ ] into Debt or Potion costs. Each differently described card cost is also incomparable, no matter how much $, Debt or Potion is with them and even though some might be distinctly easier to pay than others. So you can't remodel a [ ] into a differently described [ ], but you could remodel [ ] into $1[ ] or $2[ ] if the described cost on each card is identical.
So remodelling a Doppelganger would only let you get another Doppelganger, or a theoretical card costing $1[ ] or $2[ ] with 'to buy this, discard an Action card that you have a copy of in play'.

That said, I like the execution of the card cost with Doppelganger! It's elegant and thematic. There's always the possible issue of 'why not do it like Animal Fair?', and here it probably would be too open and easy to get. It can do better than Wish, after all.

My submission:

https://www.bilder-upload.eu/bild-00f6d6-1602333658.png.html

Sumisu
$2 – Action
Quote
+6-X Cards,
where X is the number of 痛 you
have. If you have less Action
cards in play (not counting this)
than you have 痛, lose a 痛.
-----------------------------
Setup: Each player takes 5 痛.

I have used silverspawn’s mechanic of 痛 (Pain) tokens, introduced in the last contest. While silverspawn used the tokens for an all or nothing activation of Tera after they are gone, I interpreted it a bit differently and let Sumisu gradually improve with each 痛 less. Sumisu with all tokens still around is equivalent to a Ruined Library. It gradually gets better, but with every token less, it becomes harder to get further improvement.

If anyone would ever be courageous enough to play with more than one 痛 tokens card, I recommend that respective Randomizers are modified so that there are sections with differently colored borders for the 痛 tokens of each player.

War-Torn Village - $3
Action - Season
+2 Actions
You may trash a Treasure card from your hand. If you do, in Spring or Summer: +1 Cards; otherwise: Trash this to gain a Mercenary.

This uses Asper & Co0kieL0rd's Seasons Mechanic.

A simple village that can start deck thinning early game and then you can trade it in for a Spoils and Mercenary late game. The Seasons mechanic is mainly there to delay the Mercenary attacks, but also punishes players that buy too many as it is a glorified Necropolis in Fall and Winter if you do not want the Mercenaries.

Edit: Nerfed hard at Silverspawns suggestion.

What's up with people making absurdly strong cards recently?

+2 Cards +2 Actions, trash a Treasure card from your hand, that makes masquerade look weak, and the other effect is even better. This seems semi-busted at 5$.

Just compare it to Spice Merchant, which is one of the strongest 4$s.

Well, you are right about that one. It was not my intention to make it busted, but is seems to be so. Alterations have been made. Thanks for the feedback.

Since most of the entries this week are on the complicated side, I'm going simple. This just adds a bit of variety to the game.

It is okay, as long as I understand how it is supposed to be played (which I do). This version still doesn't address the issue though, look at the wording on Chapel: "Trash up to 4 cards from your hand."
