Best knight?

Which knight do you think will be the best (i.e. strongest)?

Full descriptions: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/20240121/dark_ages/3.jpg. I put the non-jousting effects along with the poll options.

Was between Michael and Anna for me.  I figured trashing might be better than making others discard.

Michael seems best to me.  A hand attack AND a trash attack?  Geez.

My guess is Anna, provided the game has no other trasher. Having the only trasher on the board is a big advantage.

Michael, Molly, and Martin can also be excellent if you can't get their benefits from any other card present. The rest aren't too special.

Michael and Anna seem the best. I went with Anna though because I think that the trashing effect will come in more handy.

Whoa, these are crazy. So you could have a game with all kingdom cards being Knights?

I think even though Josephine provides no effect, that 2VP bonus might mean the difference between winning and losing the game, especially if both players play similar strategies.

no, they are individual cards that go in one stack.

No. It is one supply pile. They are ten unique characters.

I don't foresee the trashing from Anna being all that good. There's a reason Trading Post is way worse after the opening, and ever opening Anna seems very remote. Sure the whole set makes trashing better, but I don't know about that good. I voted for Michael because the combo attack just seems way more powerful on average.

Anna (with no other trasher), Molly (in an engine game), Michael, and Bailey all look strong.

Josephine is dangerous, because although that 2 VP might mean the difference in a close game, what if you lose her to a duel with another knight?  Then you might as well not have had a bonus at all.

Come to think of it, maybe for that reason Vander is the best one!

Any votes for Martin?  The bonus isn't much, but the reduced cost is huge.

Whoa, I didn't even notice the reduced cost. I'll edit it into the poll if possible.

In fact, surely it's a printing error? It makes no sense to have 9 $5 knights and 1 $4 knight, especially since the attack is so strong.

These knights sure look like they will make the opening of the game pretty darn swingy...

It'll be whichever one provides a bonus not easily available in the supply.

If the only village is a $5 village, then you'll be short on villages and "+2 actions" will be a good knight to have. Likewise, if the only card draw costs 5 or more, than the moat-knight is good. If a knight is the only source of +buy, then the +buy knight is great.

I voted for the discard-attack knight.

...also, there needs to be a "knights vs rogues" poll.

I wouldn't discount Natalie. Filling your deck with silver might be a very good defense against enemy knights.

Anyone want a secret chamber?

I vote for Sir Cantrip.  Whatever is on the board, he can fit in.  A good reliable fellow.
