Treasure Chest Design Contest — Card #3: Dark Ages
« on: September 10, 2013, 11:30:06 am »
+10

The third contest is to design a card that would fit well in Dark Ages.

Submission Rules

• Submit no more than one card per challenge.
• You are not obligated to submit a card for every challenge.
• Submit your card to me via this forum's messaging system.  Submissions made after each week's deadline cannot be accepted.
• Each card you submit must have a name, a cost, a list of types, and the exact wording that should appear on the card.  Also include a brief description of any special design considerations (e.g., Stash having a unique back), but do NOT include any other information, such as strategic commentary or examples about it would play.
• Unlike the previous set design contest, the name you give your card will appear on the ballot. If multiple cards with the same name are submitted, I will differentiate them with letters in a randomly chosen order, e.g. [Card Name] A, [Card Name] B, etc. Cards themselves will likewise be listed in a random order on the ballot.
• I will accept revisions to your contest entries provided they are submitted to me before the deadline.  If you submit a revision to an entry you have previously submitted to me, resubmit your revised card(s) in their entirety.  That is, don't tell me "Oh, can you make that +2 Cards say +3 Cards instead?"  Just resubmit the full card.
• Only submit cards that are your own design.
• You may submit cards that have been previously posted here in this forum, including those that have been refined by the community as a whole, provided you can still claim that the central conceit of the card -- and the majority of its final version -- is yours.
• A single card might conceivably qualify for multiple challenges within this series. If your card doesn't win the first challenge you submit it to, you may submit it for any and all future challenges (until it wins), provided the card fits those challenges. This is particularly pertinent for cards that don't win the first of two slots for a large expansion, although depending on which card does win, your card may not qualify for the second challenge.
• Do not disclose your submissions publicly, either in this thread or elsewhere!

For this Treasure Chest set, you may not submit cards that combine certain mechanics from multiple expansions. The idea is that you could simply slot the cards into their respective sets without needing components or rules specific to another set. Specifically:

• Duration cards may only be submitted as candidates for a Seaside slot.
• Potion-cost cards may only be submitted as candidates for the Alchemy slot.
• Cards that use VP tokens or cost $7 or more may only be submitted as candidates for a Prosperity slot.
• Cards that use Coin tokens and cards that use overpay may only be submitted as candidates for the Guilds slot.
• Cards that use Ruins (Looters) and cards that use Spoils may only be submitted as candidates for a Dark Ages slot.

Many mechanics are fair game for any submission. The following is an incomplete list.

• Victory/Action and Victory/Treasure hybrid cards.
• Cards that allow you to choose an ability from a list.
• Cards with on-buy, would-gain, on-gain, and on-trash abilities.

I will be putting some constraints on the set as a whole.

• The raw number of cards (including randomizers) must not exceed 150.



Challenge #3 : Dark Ages

Design a Kingdom card that would fit into the Dark Ages expansion. Ideally such a card will have one or more of the following qualities:

• Does something when you trash it.
• Trashes itself and/or other cards.
• Upgrades other cards.
- Cares about the trash.
- Uses Ruins.
- Uses Spoils.

The bullet points (•) are the set's major themes, and the hyphens (-) are the set's minor themes.

The deadline for this week's challenge is Monday, September 23, 2013 at 8am CDT.

If you have any questions, please post them here or send me a private message and I will endeavor to answer them in a timely manner. Good luck!

Voting Rules

• I will not accept votes until Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at 8am CDT. There are two reasons for this. First, I've almost certainly made some mistakes and I want the card authors to have time to contact me so I can make fixes. Second, I want everybody to have the chance to critique and discuss the cards for a few days.
• The deadline for turning in your ballots is Monday, September 30, 2013 at 8am CDT.
• We are using an approval voting system. That means you can vote for as many of the cards as you like, but only once for each card. Feel free to vote for your own card if you submitted one. When you send in your ballot, simply list the cards you'd like to vote for.
• I will generally not accept revisions to ballots. I recommend you send your ballot in later rather than earlier in case you change your mind about some of your votes.
• The winning card may (and likely will) be revised, so I encourage you vote for a card if you think it could be great with a different cost or some slight tweaking.

***** There are 3 Kingdom cards on the ballot that use a supplementary (non-Kingdom) card. In each case, there are 5 copies of the supplementary card. *****

I wonder how many submissions will contain the word 'trash'? By my count, 22/35 cards in Dark Ages do (counting Knights as 1 and excluding Ruins/gain only cards). It's very possible to design a card that fits that has nothing to do with trashing.
Logged
...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.
I hereby declare myself the best dominion player in the world. Obviously.

I have a bunch of ideas for this and I won't be able to submit every one.  Can you tell us what kind of extra restriction might be placed on the second Dark Ages contest?  It is probably contingent on the concept of the first DA winner.

Do you like mine? It's a variation of one of my old cards.

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

I love mine, but it's a bit arrogant to claim Donald X stole your idea. He said it was one of the only cards same from the very beginning.

...
Considering all 3 major points would include the word trash, probably almost all the submissions will. I should try to do one without it just to fit this.

A word of caution to anyone who is thinking of counting cards in the trash or otherwise using the trash pile.  The trash fills up much faster in four player games than in two player games.

Bingo.

I'm curious in what way though. Like, if the winner has an on trash clause, will the next contest ban it?

Do you really want LastFootnote to make some definitive statement ahead of time?  I imagine it's the sort of restriction that will be common sense.  A sort of you know it when you see it type of deal, to ensure some variety.  Obviously if the card which wins hits all of the themes listed, it isn't going to bar all of the themes in the next go.

Do you really want LastFootnote to make some definitive statement ahead of time?  I imagine it's the sort of restriction that will be common sense.  A sort of you know it when you see it type of deal, to ensure some variety.  Obviously if the card which wins hits all of the themes listed, it isn't going to bar all of the themes in the next go.

I'm looking for a gist of it, not definitive statements. But that's fair.

• Does something when you trash it.
• Trashes itself and/or other cards.
• Upgrades other cards.
- Cares about the trash.
- Uses Ruins.
- Uses Spoils.

Is "cares about the trash" really a minor theme, as opposed to a special case of the general "interaction with trashing" theme?

Another arguable minor theme of Dark Ages is "unorthodox configurations of cards": supply piles with differently-named cards in them; a kingdom pile with 20 cards in it; a $1 card—Dark Ages more than any other expansion is the place for cards that break the rules of how Dominion cards work in various ways.

Man, I can see why rinkworks burned out after running a contest like this.

Perhaps you could get some volunteers (who are active enough that you could trust them) to run various rounds?

Also i think nobody would be mad if you felt you needed to pause the contest for a week or so... Gives us more time to fix our cards, and after all, you're doing us a favour.

I'd be more than willing to take over for the second one of every big expansion.

Seconded. I wasn't even prepared for a Dark Ages submission yet

OK, I will amend the deadline to make it Monday after next, effectively giving the contest a week hiatus.

Cross-posting this here.

Come to think of it, I am a bit worried that someone will make a pile like Knights which would be a real strain on the ballot space-wise, particularly if several people submit such ideas.

Due to the ridiculous amount of work that would be for me, I won't allow it. I will allow a maximum number of two cards for any given submission. Either a stack of Kingdom cards with two different cards in it or a Kingdom card and a supplementary card (which can have no more than 5 copies, maybe less depending on how many Victory cards we have).

Please do not read this as a challenge! I prefer single-card submissions.

While this should apply for all contests, it is somewhat more relevant for Dark Ages.

Donald had stated the the discard pile is a minor theme as well (if I remember correctly)

Cabbage Merchant.  Now is the time Robz.

Seriously, if anyone can't think of a name for their card this round, call it Cabbage Merchant please. ;)

A few other name suggestions:

Ravine
Barbarians
Plague
Forgotten Tome
Abbey
Cats ;)

This is Medieval times. Cats are too close to witches; we clearly need "Terriers" as our Rats-slayers.

But other options:

Saint
Castle
Crag
Monastery
Priory
Pardoner
Simoner
Summoner
Paladin
Burgh
Charter
Privilege
Vassal
