Will you or have you ever considered putting a question mark or exclamation point in any card-shape-thing text? If so, what would it take?

I don't feel the need to rule out a card name with ? or !, but it doesn't seem so likely. I mean it's Raid, not Raid!, and I think all the ! adds there is "this is trying to be funny."

As noted ? is used to represent unknown $ amounts. I'm not seeing what ! could do. I don't want to suggest that any rule is more emphatic than the others.

I was assuming he was asking about ability text. As you say, an exclamation couldn't realistically add anything to the ability itself. A question mark seems more possible, but I can't really think of a wording where it would make sense.

There could be a Treasure that gives X-factorial amount of money.

Contrary to popular belief, I do not run the wiki all on my own.  There are plenty of other people who are actively editing.  Go bother them!

Cards with specialized discounts, like Quarry or Ferry, make for interesting Remodel paths that aren't available with global discounts.

Have you ever tested other types of specialized discounts? For example, a Victory-specific cost reducer?

Dark Ages had "Copies of cards in the trash cost $1 less." Various cards have made just themselves cheaper different ways, like Peddler.
