Clownpiece
cost $5 - Action
+1 Action
+$1 per unused Actions (not Action cards) you have.
If this is the first time you played a Clownpiece this turn, you may move your +1 Action token to an Action Supply pile. (When you play a card from that pile, you first get +1 Action.)

EDIT: cost $4 => $5

one quick clarification @grrgrrgrr - can it be a regular card or does it have to be a sideways card like object?

Pioneer
Types: Action
Cost: $4
+1 Action, +$1. Move your +1 Card token to an Action Supply pile. (When you play a card from that pile, you first get +1 Card.) At the start of Clean-Up, remove it from the Supply.
Looks weakish. A rough heuristic is to pick Pioneer as target for the +1 Card token but then it is weaker than Peddler. And if you pick another card, e.g. a village, you still needs several Pioneers/Coppers to activate the +1 Card thingy.

No. This is SUPER SWINGY. Play Pioneer to put +1 Card on Village, play Village as Lost City, play another, play another, play Pioneer to put +1 Card to Smithy, play Smithy as Hunting Grounds, play Smithy as Hunting Grounds,  ...

Yes, you need to have Pioneer in hand, but moving +1 Card token multiple times in one turn is horrible. Needs once per turn clause like mine, or another trick.

Regular cards are definitely eligible.

Archaeologist
$5 Action - Looter
+1 Card, +1 Action.
Gain a ruins, putting it in your hand.
You may play an action costing $3 or less.
-
When you gain this, you may put your +1 Action, +1 Card, +$1, or +1 Buy token on the ruins pile.
The first two of these you buy are weak, but once you buy four of them, you'll have all four tokens on your ruins pile which should make them pretty strong.

Posting the entry now. I might do a mock-up later so it looks nice.

I quite like this. I suspect it might get strong from the get go unless it gets affected by the variable top card of ruins? I mean does it only apply if the ruins card played is the same as the top card?

No, the tokens affect all the cards in the pile. See the rule here: http://wiki.dominionstrategy.com/index.php/Adventures_tokens

Just after gaining one of these, you can put your +1 Card token on the Ruins pile and your Archaeologist will be strictly better than a Laboratory on-play (since the Ruin can be played freely, it's a net +2 Cards, +1 Action, plus the Ruins effect). And with just two Archaeologists gained, the Ruins become either:
A free Laboratory (Ruined Library)
A free Village (Ruined Village)
A free, reaction-less Market Square (Ruined Market)
A free Peddler (Abandoned Mine)
Or a free mini-cartographer (Survivors). I think Archaeologist is way too strong for just . (And note this is assuming you use your +1 Card and +1 Action tokens first. You can move the tokens in any order, so Archaeologist is actually strictly better than that.)

I'm still umming and aahing about the cost. But I've improved the effect while mildly weakening the attack. However it now has the problem of obliging people to keep track of which of the two tokens it "moved" and I'm assuming you can move a token to the same pile it was on (counterintuitively).

can you edit the previous post with a link to this one and make it clear that the previous post isn't the finalized entry?

Whatever1
$6 Event
Move your +$1 token to a non-Action Supply pile. (When you play a card from that pile, you first get +$1.)

Whatever2
$5 Event
Move your +1 Buy token to a non-Action Supply pile. (When you play a card from that pile, you first get +1 Buy.)


I don't know, the second one is probably sound but the first one could be broken. For example in a Baker Kingdom and 5/2 , you could open with it and convert all your Coppers into Silvers.
The main idea here is obviously to counterbalance the heavy engine bias of Adventures.

My attempt to reuse the Estate token:
Quote

Reinvest
$5 D3 - Event
Set aside a non-Command Action card from your hand. If you did, move the Estate token on it. If you had removed the Estate token from some card, move that card to the discard pile.

v 1.1. Renamed and added an illustration

changing my entry to Carnival

Quote
Carnival • $4 • Project
Move your + Buy token to an Action pile
(When you play a card from that pile, you first get +1 Buy).
When you buy a card from the pile your + Buy token is on, +2 Buys.

Modular buy splitter. If Seaway is around, you can change what splits your buys.

When you Hear a lion roar, well let’s just say in real life you usually drop what your doing and react to it until after it’s roar has ended. But definitely not during the roar.

Merchant Wharf.  Action-Attack-Duration. Costs $5

+1 Action
Put your +1 Buy token on an Action pile. If you buy this Action this turn, put it aside. If you don't, the other players take their -$1 token
At the start of your next turn, play the eventual aside Action, then choose 2 different : +1 Card +1 Action  +$1.
When you discard this from play, remove the +1 Buy token.


Well, my proposition is late, and it's a pity because i'd like to have time and discussions for perhaps balance it better.
The first turn is weak, the second rather strong, but is that worth $5 ?
Vanilla bonus at first and/or 2nd turn can be changed, for example...

Rewording suggestion for Merchant Wharf:

+1 Action
Move your +1 Buy token to an Action Supply pile. If you buy an Action from that pile this turn, set it aside. Otherwise, each other player takes their - token at the start of Clean-up.
At the start of your next turn, play the set aside Action, then choose two: +1 Card; +1 Action; or +. (The choices must be different.)
-
When you discard this from play, remove your +1 Buy token.

This way, it's more in-line with official cards and easier to read and understand.

Thank you very much !
Obviously more clear (and "in-line"  ;) )
I tried to make shorter to avoid too small lines (one could tell me to design less complicated cards !)

Adventurer's Village
$4
Action
+1 Action
+1 Buy
Flip over your Journey token (it starts face up). If its face up, +2 Cards, +1 Action, +$1.

Its a cheap level 3 City with its bonuses split.

Counting House is the best card in the game. Change my mind.

Looks OK. It is on average a Worker Village with 1/2 less Action and 1/2 more Coin.
