ASS Altenburger has just revealed the new promo Schwerin Cathedral on their Facebook page, as a hommage for the winning state of the German Dominion contest season 2018, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It's a cost $3 Duration card. It will be first available at the Internationale Spieletage 2019 in Essen.

I did not possibly describe its effect as "whacky" or wacky, or in fact in any way whatsoever to the people writing that.

The Facebook-page does not mention any "whacky" effects. Where did the OP get that from?

At the start of each of your turns for the rest of the game: trash a card from your hand. (This stays in play.)

When you gain this, play it.

It used to! They fixed it after I complained to Jay and he complained to them.

I would guess something about trashing: We have Cathedral, Temple, Chapel, and Monastery already...

Also, is this the first card with the name of an actual place? I know Sauna/Avanto was created for Finland, but it's not a single place.

Walled Village is called "Carcassonne" in the German edition, I gather.

Oh yeah, I forgot Carcassonne was a place; I just thought of it as the tile-placing game with meeples.

Not anymore. Because ASS Altenburger does not have the license for Carcassonne, it is called „Befestigtes Dorf“ (literally “fortified village”) now.

Why?

So that you can't stop the trashing by trashing it from play, by using something like Bonfire.

Yeah, the "this stays in play" clause is separate from the "rest of the game" effect clause on Hireling and Champion. They stay in play for tracking reasons. And in Hireling's case, to prevent you from stacking the effect every shuffle.

Edit: which means technically you can Throne a Hireling and then free up the Throne Room by trashing Hireling with Bonfire. Now I really want to play a game with KC, Hireling, and Bonfire, just to see how many cards I start my turn with by the end of the game. It's so fun to just mess around with silly concepts like that. I hope the new promo is on the unusual side. Not that there's not already plenty of messing around material in Dominion.

You don't even need Bonfire. Just use Procession instead of Throne Room, and Lurker to get them back.

True. That would result in even more Hireling plays. Or you could include Procession and Lurker as well as KC and Bonfire, and then when you Process your Hirelings you can gain KCs so you can gain back the Hirelings with Lurker and KC them! Oh, and don't forget to include Outpost, because it'll hardly make a difference that you have two fewer cards in hand, and Mission because you're just gaining cards with Procession and Lurker. And who doesn't love triple-turns which would each individually would take forever?

Because it is german vocabulary for "Ace" and in case of ASS Altenburger an acronym reminiscensing former independent but over time merged companies in Altenburg and Stralsund producing playing cards.

Yes, there are a few combos like that. Crowning a Hireling and buying a Mandarin is another way of getting the same effect.

Set aside a card from your hand (on this). At the start of your next turn, you may trash a card from your hand per coin the set aside card costs. Trash the set aside card.

Probably not a 3-cost by itself, as it's probably less powerful than Chapel, but I might as well make a guess. Maybe with some vanilla bonus added?

I have a feeling this card will have absolutely nothing to do with trashing.
