Yes, it's a little bit early, but I like to prepare the 2013 voting and with Dark Ages a change in the categories is needed.

Also I want to add all cards in the voting as many of you requested. This causes/may cause some problems.

For maximum fun, I really appreciate your feedback for compiling the categories. I already have sort of my own opinion. But I want to let you answer the numbered questions below unbiased.

For adding base cards: Silver and Gold really make no problems to add them in the $3 and $6 category respectively.

1.) Does it make sense voting for Base victory cards like Duchy and Estate?

If yes, there's also Province as an $8 cost card. We already have Peddler in the $6+ category, but we all know this isn't a $8 cost card per se. This leads to:

2.) How can we assign Province, Platinum and Colony to a category?

Then there's Copper and Curse. We don't have a $0 category and we did get 5 different Ruins for $0.

Also there are 8 different $0* cards so far. Then there are 3 Shelters and Poor House for $1.

3.) How can we assign these to categories? A 19 card list with all these cards like

rinkworks did? Or separate the $0* cards? Does it make more sense to differentiate between $0, $1 and $2 cards? Or is a $0-$2 list more reasonable? Or a mix like $0-$1 and $2 or $0 and $1-$2?

4.) Then there's Potion. This will be very hard to rank. Should we include it in the $4 list?

5.) Knights are another exclusion. I think one possibility is to add each knight to their respective ($4 or $5) list and the other one is to treat Knights as one average card for $5 and make a separate list for ranking each Knight.

6.) Not a real problem, but I like already to mention that the strength of Tournament, Urchin, Hermit and all Spoils gaining cards depend on their corresponding 0* card, but if we will vote the 0* cards, their strength will be independent of how they are gained and should be voted independantly. Please tell me if you agree or not...
