My Intrigue submission is my first one since Indulgence that I'm looking forward to discussing.  I don't have particularly high hopes for it in this contest, but I think there is some interesting and largely unexplored design space there even if the particular card I chose to submit is not ideal.

This contest will be the first one since I wrote my simulator, so I might go a little overboard and simulate every card: be warned.

That would be awesome, but take results with a grain of salt. There are bound to be many choice cards and simulators tend to be bad at judging situations.

Yo I'm not submitting an entry to this or any of these contests, but here's a card name that I thought would be great for Intrigue, if you need flavor inspiration:

Viceroy

It's got the theme of minor nobility which is found throughout the expansion. Plus it could conceivably have interactions with Victory Cards, which are also very Intrigue-y. You could appoint a Viceroy to govern a distant province! And then...something good happens? Maybe you've got a choice about it? Haha

Viceroy

I actually considered that name, but I felt it was more for a Hinterlands card, because Viceroys are appointed to distant places. I agree about the interaction with Victory cards, though.

Well, for us Canadians, it is Thanksgiving weekend, maybe LastFootnote is spending time with family in St. Paul... Alberta?

A fellow Dominion player who also lives in Quebec! We still get the day off here in Canada, though Canadian Thanksgiving is not nearly as big as it is in the U.S.

I'm looking forward to discussing your card, also!

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.

My theory is that this contest was secretly being operated and funded by the US federal government, and has somehow been deemed "non-essential".

He's probably just busy. It seemed to me like this contest was overwhelming him.

Perhaps it would be valuable to make a new account specifically for the contest, and get a collaborator so that two different people can see the private messages and put them out there.

I think there are a lot of people who would be willing, capable and have the time to do this.

This is another theory:





Also, LF might be sidetracked by pokemon.

The card I submitted for this contest was like Warehouse, except that (a) it doesn't give +1 Action, (b) it neither draws cards, nor discards them, and (c) it makes LastFootnote disappear.

Sorry.

I don't see how?  Does it really let you gain a copy of a treasure when you reveal one from your hand AND make you trash all the treasures you have in play on buy?  If not, it's not Mine!

I think he was going for the pun... as in, it sounds like mine (my own card submission).

And the card you are describing is Mint!

Mine was in caps, so the pun was intended. And he's describing Mint because it's a Mine/Mint joke.

And some people claim i complain too much about Mine/Mint jokes. They are everywhere!! If Mine/Mint-jokes were freaking cameras, FDS would be freaking 1984!
