Isotropic images  :'(

Not gonna lie, my initial reaction was "whoa, they kept the same images from the prototype until now!"

I've played a couple hundred games with the real images by now, too, but those will always be the first ones I think of.

Shouldn't this also be added to the Bible of Donald X.?

Good catch.  I linked it.  The images make it a little cumbersome to turn into a forum post.

I really liked the "Balcony" idea you guys are talking ab out on the posts above. I would really like to see a card like that. If it existed, it would bring a new age to Throne Room-based engines. Perhaps, the discard afterwards is what makes this card practically unplayable. I have thought of a version that, perhaps, could have been better for this card:

Balcony

Cost: $5

+2 Cards
Choose an action card in your hand. Play it twice. If you do, trash a card from your hand.


I'm pretty sure, though, that Donald has already thought of various versions for this card that couldn't make it to an expansion set, but i believe that this version is not really catastrophic. It requires a card to be trashed, so you need to have junk in your deck in order to make it work and you are also forced to "throne" a card, rather than allowed, as it is with Throne Room. Additionally, the "If you do" statement does not let the card be used as a "free" trasher.

Another version of this card that i have thought, is to cost $3 or $4 and either trash the Balcony played, or trash the action throned.

The biggest issue is keeping track of everything. You have to remember, after you've been working on resolving whatever other card twice, that Balcony still has stuff for you to do.

Yup. The problem is that having a card that plays another card, then does something, creates colossal stack issues when chained.

You could just have it do it's other thing first.

Trash a card from your hand. Choose an action and play it twice.

+1 for the distinctive selection of an overbashed font in the first few generations.
