The Contest Set Card List
« on: July 19, 2012, 11:02:35 pm »
+26

The cards listed here have all won a challenge in the Mini-Set Contest and are therefore included in the community-build set that this contest was set up to build.  These cards are subject to change, based on the results of naming, wording, and playtesting discussions elsewhere in this subforum.  Additionally, not all necessarily have art done yet, but if members of the community would like to do that, upload the images here, and I'll add them to this post.  Other good uses for this thread would be discussion about the set as a whole; for example, noting interesting interactions between the cards in the set.

Wasn't Soothsayer reworded to:

+2 Cards. Each other player gains a Curse, setting it aside on his Soothsayer mat.
In games using this, at the start of your Buy phase you may discard a Treasure from your hand. If you don't, discard all cards on your mat. Trash the set aside cards at the end of the game.

Indeed.  Somehow I remembered to update Herald but not that one.  Fixed now.

This is shaping up to be a Copper themed set: VP for copper (sort of) with Museum, gaining copper (Almoner and Pawnshop), trashing Copper (Pawnshop), discarding Copper (to Soothsayer) and naming Copper so it won't be drawn into your hand (Gatherer).

Mini-combo: Almoner/Pawnshop. Play Almoner, gaining a copper into hand. Now, you can have a hand of 5 coppers and a Pawnshop as early as turn 3, turning all of them into a 5 cost! To counter this, the opponent should play a Soothsayer. There would not be as many Coppers to discard.

Late game move: I play Garrison, I have a hand of 2 Gold and a Copper and some green. I top-deck a Gold. I buy a Herald (Tea House?). I top-deck another Gold!

Mini-Strategy: get lots of Gold and Silver, play Gatherer-BM. Transition into Provinces/Museums after getting 4 Gold and 4 Silver.

Odd Defense: I play Garrison and top-deck a Copper. That way. I have a Copper to discard when Soothsayer is played.

These are terrific observations.  And I love that blueblimp designed his #5 and #6 entries specifically to combo with a card already in the set.  I'm sure there will be off-theme cards to come, but that's as it should be too.  The fact that there is an undercurrent of synergy becoming evident suggests that this is going to be a more successful enterprise than I could have imagined.

Is it possible to increase the font size on the text in the main body of the card for Museum? It appears to be smaller than what is on most cards, and there is plenty of space.

Additionally, not all necessarily have art done yet, but if members of the community would like to do that, upload the images here, and I'll add them to this post.

The image options for Pawn Shop are too small. They need to be 570 pixels wide, at least.

Gorgeous.  But what about paintings of tea houses, rather than photographs?

a pawn shop is something where someone exchanges a good for some money that they can then theoretically buy back later--sometimes at a higher rate.

The first one is good. But I like the second one because it seems like it is a little more in the style of other dominion cards. It is a little creepy. It looks like the kids are pawning off their pets to this old man to get Halloween masks. Then the pets get turned into rugs and such.... If you think it is too weird, use the first one.

Yeah, I like it as well, now that you explained everything. It was a bit difficult to choose the detail I could pick for the card. I did not like his glowing eyes plus the upright format did not suit the space provided on the card so I chose a close up of the kids where the story you explained actually happens.

I was thinking it would be nice to have the inventor of the card named on the card beside the illustrator, if there is enough room.
