Now that doesnít make sense about the last challenge he said my messenger bird didnít quite fit the duration effect and yet I based it off of cargo ship which is a duration also even though there are cards that give out +1 card to each other player mine was a little better for instance lost city and soothsayer both let the other player draw cards however if militia was played they would lose all those extra cards anyway. With my messenger birds duration effect they wouldnít lose the extra card also if outpost was played they would get an extra card on that turn as well. So I donít get why mine didnít quite work as a duration?

Which is quite a lot stuff you wouldnít be able to do unless it was a duration card. I just want to clarify why mine doesnít work as a duration card.



If outpost was with this card in a game it would be a very interesting game.

I believe what he means is that instead of having a line and the whole "while this is in play" part, the card could simply say "Each other player draws a card" instead. It would be the same thing most of the time... yes, it would be different if you also played an Outpost, or a Militia, on the same turn. But most of the time it's the same thing.

So this isn't creating a vulnerability for you while it is in play... it is simply giving your opponents a bonus, one that you know exactly what it is when you play the card. A vulnerability for the purposes of this contest is something that gives your opponents a window of opportunity where they can do something to take advantage of it. With Messenger Bird, your opponents don't or can't do anything to take advantage of it; it just automatically happens.

Are you in public relations or something? Are you for hire!? :)

Just some minor feedback for future judges -- please include links to the entries when judging comes around. It's a pain in the @ss to look back and find every entry to know what you're talking about, especially when some people don't have easy-to-spot, fancy mockups for their cards.

So should we set a time today at which if MeNowDealWithIt doesn't start the next challenge, Segura will take over as judge?

Is 48 hours after the post announcing the winner a reasonable amount of time? That would be tomorrow at 1:06 AM my time zone (EDT or UTC-4). Or is that too generous? Should it be 36 hours?

Because this week's judging was a bit earlier than normal, I think time needs to be allowed to account for that. The last challenge was posted a week ago from today, so I think today is when the "extra time" clock should be started, not when the results were announced a couple days ago. So maybe 24 hours from this evening, giving exactly 8 days from when the last one was started?

But then again it was stated in the original post that the contest would end on Tuesday at Noon, meaning the clock has already started (and is almost done).

This is something I figured out the other day, actually.
[ url=<insert url for what you want to link to here>]<insert text for the link>[ /url]
To find the url of an entry, go to where that entry is located, and click the link at the top of the message where it says "Re: Weekly Design Contest Thread" (for example. It will say whatever the thread name is.) Then copy whatever is in your url bar (I don't know what it's called).

Just right click the title of an individual post and "Copy Link Address".
Then add:
Code: [Select]
[url=http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=18987.msg802863#msg802863]This is a link to your post[/url]

Sorry for the late reply starting the new chain; Didn't think I'd actually win.

Challenge #32: Make me skip chapel!

Basically, in a kingdom with the card (-shaped object) you design for this contest, and chapel, make it frequently a viable strategy never to buy a chapel.

Printed things that do this that come to mind include (but might not be limited to) Donate, Cathedral, Gardens, Philo-stone, and Fountain. Entries will be judged based on:
* How likely they are to make me skip chapel (You usually buy Chapel even when Gardens is on the board.)
* How much they don't completely break the game (You obv skip chapel in a game with a $2 Event that says "Gain the province pile")
* How much I personally like them (duh)

I'll try to judge on Monday, June 10.

The idea behind this was to add a penalty for trashing too much. However, games w/o trashing aren't usually quite as fun, so I also wanted to include a built-in way to trash that avoided the penalty. Probably changes the game a lot more than the already-existing Landmarks, but I figure that anything that makes Chapel skippable on a regular basis would have to be.

Hoard House - Landmark


The first time you trash a card from your hand, remove your Hoarder token from here.
When scoring, if your Hoarder token is on this, 18vp.
-
Setup: Each player starts with their Hoarder token on this.

Interesting. I almost did a very similar challenge this last week. Very exciting!

How do you feel about cards that counter Chapel? Specifically a card that only has strength when other players trash (or in this case have Chapel), but is otherwise weak. So it would likely make you skip Chapel if other players ended up not skipping Chapel.

Yes, it's mathy. So are actual taxes. :P
If you didn't get the point, this is supposed to encourage you to keep the average cost of cards in your deck low. I struggled with finding a way to encourage a deck of cheap cards that usually matters but isn't too brutal.

That's a very interesting concept. It wouldn't work quite as well IRL, but as an online only card, I think it would lead to some interesting new strategies.

Is not the effect the opposite? You want to trim your deck to play as many bulls as possible in order to bury your opponents  in piles of dung and after that trash as many cards as possible to lower their points

Small wording change suggestion for Pile of Dung:

When this is trashed you trash this, put it back into your hand.

Small change, but it would make it consistent with Fortress.

Well people will think twice before buying chapel, for awhile at least. The player with the least amount of dung piles will still think twice about buying chapel.

I thought the point of the contest was to make a card that would make players avoid chapel. With a pile of dung you will avoid buying chapel. With a pile of dung in the game players players will probably think keeping their coppers and estates is better than a huge minus score. In a 4 player game letís say 30 cards are in the trash thatís the exact of opposite of a province, if thatís the case all players will probably have a minus score at the end of game. So all players will avoid trashing cards and if thatís the case, then thatís the real point of this card. No minus score from a pile of dung means no buying chapel and no trashing cards. Which I thought was the point of this contest in the first place.

Make a card that makes buying chapel a bad idea.

And fixed pile of dungs wording

I don't know if this is on your end as well, but I only see Pile of Dung. The other is just a "the image you are requesting does not exist or is no longer available" message.
