Challenge accepted. The thing about Bob Dylan is his style kind of wanders so much that you don't have to really adhere to a super strict syllable count and you can kind of tweak the delivery to make it flow however you want to fit the meter so it's not quite as hard as it seems at first.
Having said that, here's Tangled Up In Blue: A comedy of errors starring your favorite reaction cards.

This is fantastic. I'm speechless.

Thank you! I'm happy to entertain and song parodies have always been a hobby of mine. The sky's the limit as far as implementing dominion concepts into classic songs goes.

I just randomly revisited this, and it's been like four years, so I thought it could use an update. Here's the full song:


"I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserable


There was a time when players were kind
When their decks were slow
And their economies underproducing
There was a time when the game was simple
And action chains weren't long
And the coin wasn't virtual
There was a time

Then he added more expansions

I Schemed a Scheme in turns gone by
When hope was high
And hands worth playing
I Schemed so my deck would never die!
I Schemed so shuffle luck would be forgiving

Then I was young and low in rankings
And alt-VP sat unused and wasted
There was no GG to be said
No combo untried, no Wine Merchant discarded

But the Curses come left and right
With their clogging worse than Looters
As they tear your deck apart
And they cause your engine to fail

He played the end-game by my side
He filled my logs with endless chatter
He took my undo in his stride
But he tripled Goons-ed me when the three-pile came

And still I dream he'll auto-match with me
That we will play a game together
But there are livestreams that cannot be
And there are rage quits we cannot weather

I played a Scheme so my hand would be
So different from this junk I'm holding!
So different now from what I Schemed
Now Minion has killed the Scheme
I Schemed

I have been forced to accept that lackluster play is a town tell for you.

"We are the Pirate Ships
who don't do anything.
We just sit here
and clog your deck
and if you play us
to do anything,
we'll just show you..."
"we don't do anything!

"Well I've never trashed a Silver,
and I've never trashed a Gold card,
and I can't trash kingdom treasures 'cause this board has none of that.
And I've never trashed a Platinum,
and I've never trashed a Potion,
and the thin Action-based engine stomped me flat."


"We are the Pirate Ships
who don't do anything.
We just sit here
and clog your deck
and if you play us
to do anything,
we'll just show you..."
"we don't do anything!

"And I never pay for Minion,
and I never pay for King's Court,
and I never pay for Province 'cause there's no coins on my mat.
And I've never paid for Highway,
and I've never paid for Chapel,
and the thin Action-based engine stomped me flat."


"We are the Pirate Ships
who don't do anything.
We just sit here
and clog your deck
and if you play us
to do anything,
we'll just show you..."
"we don't do anything!

"Well, I've never topdecked Tunnel,
and I can't react to Swindler,
and I've never moved my Ferry token onto Bureaucrat.
And I've never Princed a Swamp Hag,
and I've never been Embargoed,
and the thin Action-based engine stomped me flat."


"Huh? What are you talkin' about? What's a Tunnel and Ferry tokens have to do with playing a Pirate Ship?"
"Hey, that's right. We're supposed to sing about Pirate Ship things."
"Oh."
"And who's ever Princed a Swamp Hag? That's just nonsense! Why even bring it up? Am I right? What do you think?"
"I think you look like the Black Pearl."
"Huh? No I don't."
"Do too."
"Do not!"
"You've made your point, savvy?"
"That's it. You're walking the plank."
"Says who?"
"Says the Cap'n! That's who!"
"Oh yeah? Aye aye, Cap'n Sparrow! Hee hee hee hee!"
"Aaaargh!"
"Yikes!"


"And I've never gained a Beggar,
and I've never drawn a Ranger,
and I've never placed a Duchess on an empty Island mat.
And I've never triggered Merchant,
and I don't exchange for Venture..."

"You just don't get it."
"...and the thin Action-based engine stomped us flat!"

Robz, your original "I Dreamed A Dream" post was the greatest dominion song parody of all time, and this is a worthy followup. You are a muse.
