Treasure Chest Design Contest — Card #5: Intrigue
« on: October 03, 2013, 06:21:27 pm »
+9

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

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 #5 : Intrigue

Design a Kingdom card that would fit into the Intrigue expansion. Such a card could have one or more of the following qualities:

• Gives you choices.
• Is a Victory card (including Victory–Action and Victory–Treasure hybrids).
• Cares about Victory cards.

BUT! Intrigue has a bunch of normal cards, too. When it comes right down to it, cards that give you choices are common everywhere. So for this contest, I encourage you to design a card that isn't too complex and would fit in either the Base Set OR Intrigue, since lots of Intrigue cards would be fine in the Base Set.

I have a special request! I've been meaning to write a little blurb on each of these contests, but I'm lazy, so this it my first attempt. In this blurb, I'd like to talk about Things We Already Have: Intrigue Edition!

I see a lot of fan cards out there that are sort of a variation on Pawn/Steward/etc. Choose one/two from this list of various things that aren't really related. You know the kind of card I mean. We've got a lot of that already. If your card has a Choose-X mechanic, it should be for a good reason. Not just an expensive Pawn that chooses 3 options or gives +2 of everything instead of +1.

Likewise, if you're going to make a hybrid Victory card, it would be ideal if there is a reason it's a Victory card. Don't just take a card, raise the cost, and tack some VP on. Nobles, Harem, and especially Great Hall have filled the niche of "This is a hybrid card for the sake of being a hybrid card." Think Island: a card that's a Victory hybrid because that's the best way to pull off its mechanic.

You're free to ignore this advice, of course. I will not disqualify your mega-Pawn cards. Just some food for thought here.

The deadline for this week's challenge is Friday, October 11, 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!

I think having the Intrigue contest allow base-set cards also is a fine idea and I endorse it, don't get me wrong. I've just got some factual quibbles:

When it comes right down to it, cards that give you choices are common everywhere.

I guess... But Intrigue has more of them than any other set does, just like Seaside has more cards dealing with the top of the deck. In the narrowest counting, Intrigue has five 'choose one: this or that' cards; Seaside has two; Prosperity has one; Cornucopia has Trusty Steed; Hinterlands has one; Dark Ages has about four and is bigger than Intrigue. (I'm not counting "choose a card", or Spy-type effects. Just, like, "there's a bunch of separate things this card can do; you pick one". We could get the numbers higher by counting optional effects like Mining Village or Hamlet, but Intrigue still wins.)

Quote
lots of Intrigue cards would be fine in the Base Set.

I'm not sure I agree with this one either. What have we got?

Intrigue introduces "choose one"—so no Pawn, Steward, Nobles, Minion, Torturer in the base set.
Intrigue introduces other cards with different vanilla effects depending on when/how they're played: Shanty Town, Conspirator, Baron, Ironworks, Mining Village, Tribute.
Intrigue introduces mixed Victory cards: Great Hall, Harem, Nobles.
Intrigue has a bunch of minorly rule-changing cards that go beyond the simplicity of the base set: Masquerade, Wishing Well, Bridge, Coppersmith.

So Courtyard, Secret Chamber, Swindler, Scout, Duke, Saboteur, Trading Post, Upgrade—that's eight cards from Intrigue that, in my opinion, would feel more or less at home in the base set. Well, I guess that's not that few; it's almost a third of the expansion, anyway.

I don't think Coppersmith or Wishing Well really go beyond the base set. In fact DXV once said that if he had a Dominion time machine he'd have probably put those two into the base set in place of Chancellor and Feast.
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.

Yeah, I know he did. I respectfully disagree, especially with Coppersmith; I really think that's a little too off-the-wall to fit in the base set. I think the first expansion is the best place for both of them, broadening the range of the kinds of things Dominion cards can do.

You really need to compare that with other expansions.

Taking Seaside as an example, Donald identified 5 cards as being "off-theme":
Ambassador, Warehouse, Cutpurse, Salvager, Explorer, Bazaar

Ambassador seems way too wacky for the main set, but I suspect Navigator could fit in fairly well (it's pretty similar to Chancellor in many ways). So that's 5 cards

Prosperity is harder; it has so many treasures, super-expensive cards; VP tokens, etc.
The only Prosperity cards that I see as real possibilities (and several of them are dubious) would be:
Worker's Village, Mountebank, Rabble and maybe Counting House and Vault

I'm too lazy to go through the other sets (I suspect Hinterlands in particular would probably score high) but you get the idea.

What not to submit here : a victory-action card that gives you choice depending on victory cards
What to submit here : a basic card. (all 3 hybrid victory cards from Intrigue -Great Hall, Harem, Nobles- are pretty simple, so you can try one of them)

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.

If you go this route, you need to gain two ideas, one costing exactly one more, and one costing exactly one less than your original idea.  This technique works best when there is a synergy between ideas that have a cost difference of two, or when ideas cost $7.

This joke was bad enough when it was just Mint and Mine, so can we please stop expanding this joke to include more cards? It's not making things any better.

I have some crazy ideas for this one too, but not particularly well developed.  :-\

Just make sure to put the gained ideas on top of your deck!

If you go this route, you need to gain two ideas, one costing exactly one more, and one costing exactly one less than your original idea.  This technique works best when there is a synergy between ideas that have a cost difference of two, or when ideas cost $7.

This joke was bad enough when it was just Mint and Mine, so can we please stop expanding this joke to include more cards? It's not making things any better.
I believe it's making the jokes up to $3 better.

I like how you expanded the joke beyond simple Mine/Mint.

Sadly someone explaining the joke got more respect than me. You see, the joke was shoehorning in the word Expand. This is amusing because like the Mine/Mint joke, and the above referenced "Develop" joke, Expand is a Dominion card. In addition there were already three cards this joke was hinging on, invoking a reference to the threeness on Expand. However that was very subtle, so Just a Rube making an explicit mention of price made the joke clearer. However he did not fully explain all of the humour which we decided in that other thread makes jokes funnier, and further we also decided that long winded joke explanations were themselves a joke, making this joke both funny for explaining a previous joke, and funny for being meta.

...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.

Action attack, cost $5

Each other player reads a ruined joke.
They may play a Eel cultist from their mind.

Anyone up for someone bouncing a card idea off them? I know the basic mechanic I want to use, I just have two ways of implementing it and am torn between which is better.
