Renaissance name BINGO

Renaissance name BINGO!

First time trying to start something like this, so please bear with me.  ;D

Rules
1. Create a Bingo board with 3x3 fields like the one below, and fill it with names you think might end up in Renaissance as the names of card-shaped things.
2. Post it in this thread.
3. When one of the names is revealed, strike the name. Do not edit your original post! Instead, copy it and strike the name in a new reply.
4. Plurals and Singulars of the same noun count as the same name.
5. The first player to strike three in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line AND post "BINGO!" in this thread wins. No winning without posting, posting serves as a tie-breaker.
6. Playtesters and others who know the card names are allowed to post in this thread, but should try not to spoil the game.
PS: I realize real Bingo is 5x5, but I felt the chances are slim that anybody will win that way.

I'll go first:

Are you out of luck if it's spelled "Theater" instead?

What do you know that I don't?

Seriously though, I guess not? If we allow plural/singular, then I think different spellings should also count.

I was sure to have read that Dominion's usage of "Traveller" over "Traveler" was old (British) English, and decided for to invoke an old-timey feel. Of course a type isn't a card name, but it suffices for me to let both count.

My question was mostly because I assumed from that post that a "Theater" card had been revealed without me knowing.

Interesting, because I assumed that you were making a clever joke.

There's Cathedral and Swashbuckler from Joshua Stewart's site, but I feel like it's not fun if I don't come up with my guesses on my own.

Well, it's on the wiki page, so it must be true.

I didn't spot that one, because I'm British and we still spell "traveller" that way. Unlike the far more common "theater"/"theatre", I'd never noticed the USA spelled it differently. (Conversely, "spelt" does feel archaic to me here in the UK. Unless you're talking about the grain, of course.)

In that case, of course. What you said.

Eh, low odds of guessing much, but might as well :)


ArchitectMagnum OpusSenate
PainterCathedralFresco
AstronomerAcademyAstrolabe

Other possible words: surgeon, mathematician, physicist, levy, army, navy, patron, city-state, constitution, lawyer, contraption, investor, revolution, citadel, prison, sovereign

We will see how many I guessed.

Composer   Inventor   General
Theater      Pioneer   Cathedral

(Yes, I copied a few ideas, but at least I moved their positions. Of course, we should've started this on Sunday.)
I hope I don't win because several of these are names of fan cards I like.

Alright!  Yeah!  Ok let me take a stab at this baby!  I’m in it to win it!  I think I got a nack for this kind of guessing so here we go.

King Vaccarino | Your Mother |  Dumbledore
—————-
Morbidly Obese Ninja | The cast of cheers | The Nay Nay
—————-
Knights of Ni | Those Bomb ass tacos at the taco truck | The 1996 Olympics in Atlanta

Sit back and watch that bingo roll right my way guys!  I got this!

Umadin, you are disqualified for editing your guess.

Also, I really doubt that "Your mother" will become a Dominion card name. There's not enough ink to print her picture.

From today’s previews, I feel like I should have guessed Ducat. I would have never guessed Villain, and I would have rejected Silk Merchant based on the fact that we already have Silk Road and a bunch of merchants, though in hindsight I guess the namespace is pretty cramped already.

Yeah I'm kinda banking on that for my card:


Silk Market                 Wine Road              Grant Merchant

Market Ship                Merchant Square     Market Guild

Farmer's Merchant       Spice Market          Merchant Market

Man, flag is another one that I should have seen coming.

In other name-density news, we now got Treasure Chest to go with Treasure Map, and Treasurer to go with Treasury.

Maybe the next Dominion expansion is Dominion: In Space, to avoid this problem.

Grant Merchant is for the upcoming Dominion: Academia expansion!

I thought that distinction went to Market Space.
