Intrigue decks

Hi all

anyone know any good sets of ten using a fair bit of intrigue cards (because I just got intrigue) and using cards from the sets base, intrigue, seaside, and prosperity?

The rule book for Seaside and Intrigue should have some suggestions. I recommend avoiding Saboteur at first. You could also try shuffling up Intrigue by itself. It plays pretty well on its own.

I asked this question as well when I got Intrigue (but unlike you I only have Intrigue atm, and my base set is still elsewhere). You can take a look at the discussions here:

Thanks! I don't own cornucopia so what should I substitute for horse traders in "Fight?" Did you come up with these yourself?

Yes, I came up with those.  Having played 2000 games on iso is the only thing backing those up.

Thought cornucopia was in your short list, sorry!

A soft counter to Torturer is what was intended by the Horse Traders.  With 3 or more players go ahead and bump up to a Watchtower, with 2, try a Moat.  I designed that set to have other interesting things than Torturer though.

My IRL experience would come into play more, if it weren't that my expansion is Hinterlands.

Thanks so much! I will be sure to try these out and I will tell you what I think about them!
