Treasure Chest Design Contest — Card #4: Seaside
« on: September 25, 2013, 06:52:51 pm »
+11

The fourth contest is to design a card that would fit well in Seaside.

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 #4 : Seaside

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

• Does something on a future turn (Duration cards are included here).
• Interacts with the top of your deck or the tops of your opponent's decks.
• Interacts in some other way with future or past turns (e.g. Embargo or Smugglers).

But don't let these guidelines constrain you! Just design the card you think would fit best into the set.

The deadline for this week's challenge is Monday, September 30, 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, October 2, 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, October 7, 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.

It's time to play everyone's favorite game:
Guess how many of the Seaside submissions will be Duration cards!

Seriously, though, isn't "I want more durations" like the #1 reason people want treasure chests?
No wait, actually seriously, let's have that guessing game.

I will guess 90%.

That's kind of unavoidable, though. And Duration cards are so much fun, everyone wants more of them.

I feel like I'm the only one who isn't a huge fan of Duration cards.  I mean, they're fine.  But I always find them to be a clumsy idea.  The biggest appeal that I see is that you can print a bunch more vanilla cards.  I feel like Outpost or Tactician could have been done without the Duration type by adjusting the original rules appropriately.

I agree for the most part. I wouldn't call them clumsy, but I'm against Durations for their own sake. I think we've got enough "vanilla" Durations. If a card is a Duration card, it should be because that's the best way to implement a cool idea.

I would say that Lighthouse is the card which most deserves to be a Duration card.

This is probably the contest I am most excited for.  I'm really curious to see what sort of unique card ideas people are able to express using the Duration Type which would have been inconceivable otherwise.

Here are some Seaside-ish card names I have written down:

Observatory
Fisherman
Pirate
Admiral
Port Town
Harbour
Shoals
Pier
Docks

Not sure why I put Observatory in there... I was probably inspired by Lookout?  Who knows.

I don't yet have any interesting ideas for Seaside, crazy or otherwise.

I have a spreadsheet of my cards ideas (I know, nerd) with 171 cards. Only 5 of those are Durations, and I only semi-like 2 of those. So, I wouldn't be surprised if I don't submit a Duration card. But, I'll be trying to come up with new cards all week, so who knows??

You crazy! This contest marks my very first attempts at a fan card.

I'm having a hard time coming up with something good for Seaside. It might be a big trap to immediately decide that your card will be a duration. It gets messy to design duration bonuses beyond simple vanilla bonuses, and the official Durations that already cover a large section of design space (mega-turn with Tactician, smoothing with Haven, engine-encouragement with Outpost, defense with Lighthouse, and various combinations of vanilla bonuses with the others).

Yeah, everyone should make sure not to just tack on Duration.

This is the one contest I really want to do well in. The rest were just practice. :)

Seaside ! I was waiting for this challenge for long !

Now, I've got a question : if you have several duration cards, and you design a card such that the order of duration matters (e.g : "at the start of your next turn, discard 2 cards", which may be important with Wharf and other card-drawers),  could you play the duration effects in any order ?

Because most of the vanilla effects in Duration were already used, so it's time to innovate...

Chocolate is like victory points in Dominion. Both taste good but they'll hurt you if you eat too much of it instead of something else in your early days.

Yes, each Duration card would set up an event to happen "at the start of your next turn", and if multiple things happen at the same time (to the same player), that player chooses the order.

Probably better not have Duration cards that attack yourself though...

If the only engine on the board is Procession->Conspirator, I will play it.

Sure, but this could matter for a variety of things, including discarding, trashing, or gaining cards.

Are we allowed to submit cards from the rinkworks contest? I wouldn't mind resubmitting "Barge".

In fact, this is specifically stated in the Seaside rules as regards Duration cards.

This is the one contest I really want to do well in. The rest were just practice. :)

I just have a wording problem i'm not sure about how to solve.

I love wording problems! ...And I'm not entering a card, I don't think, so I'd be happy to try and give some advice on yours.

Actually i kind of like the idea. Usually Durations are bad now and good later. Turning this around could be used in an interesting way, i think.

Have you thought about why all of the current Duration cards work in the exact opposite way that you are proposing?  Maybe there's a reason?

Edit:  when I reread this it sounded snarky.  My point is, if you notice some pattern or structure that existing cards have, then ask whether there is a reason or whether it is coincidence.  If there is a reason, can you find some alternative way of fulfilling that reason?  Then it might be interesting.  A good example is gaining from the trash.  Once you reflect on why gaining from the trash is a bad effect to have, you can start constructing a card which addresses those issues, and something like Graverobber practically writes itself.

Here are some Seaside-ish card names I have written down:

Observatory
Fisherman
Pirate
Admiral
Port Town
Harbour
Shoals
Pier
Docks

Not sure why I put Observatory in there... I was probably inspired by Lookout?  Who knows.

I don't yet have any interesting ideas for Seaside, crazy or otherwise.

Here's some more:

Bay
Captain
Crew
Shipment
