Weekly Design Contest / Re: Weekly Design Contest #204: Count up!
« on: November 19, 2023, 03:22:17 am »
So... majiponi hasn't shown up for three days now... Is everyone ok with just moving onto the next contest? I was the runner up from the prior contest, and I have a contest ready to go right now, but Faust has 14 upvotes, 4est has 12, I have 6. How do we wanna do this?

Tired Chemist - $5
+4 Cards
+1 Action
Discard a card for each Action you've played this turn (counting this).

Did you specifically want cards that get better as they count higher? Because if you did, I want to submit something else.

Thank you!

Nocturne and Menagerie-
Night card from Nocturne, Exiling from Menagerie
Quote
Sneak Thief $3
+2 Cards.

Exile a card from your hand.

Super simple, I know, but that's what works sometimes.
Im not that good at theming, I hope it's not counted too bad against me.

what color should we use for these card-shaped things?

Quote
Gilded Gardens : Treasure - Victory : $4
+$1 for each Victory card you have in play.
-
Worth 1% per 2 Victory cards you have with two or more types (round down).

yeah that does seem like a pretty limited design space idk
This might be a bit problematic with Inheritance...
does inheritance make estates into action cards for the whole game? I don't think so, I think it's just for your turn.
That's true, but inheriting some cantrip will still make it so that Gilded Gardens is easily worth $6 or more.
Especially with a cantrip that gives +Buys (like Market Square or, to a lesser extent, Hamlet) which makes it easier for the player to then spam the Estates.
well yeah, it's obviously really good with any Action-Victory card, that's the whole point. Mill and Nobles work the same way, and is totally intentional. Even Harem combos with this. I think it's fine, there's only like 4 cards this really goes off with.

Patron - Action/Reaction - $4
Reveal your hand. +$1   
for each type (Action, Attack, etc.) revealed.
-
When something causes you to reveal this (using the word "reveal"), +1 Card.

Do I get another $1 if I play Sponsor to reveal another to draw a Victory card?  I mean, is the card I draw while revealing revealed?

Thanks for the question, no it's not revealed. All the revealed cards go to "revealed land", then you draw, then you get the +$.

Frontersmen : Action : $3

When you gain this, you may return it to its pile for +1 Power.

Upgradeable Action. works great with gainers.

My submission:



Idk which wording to use, so I just submitted both. Same effect; draw a card for each card you trash.

Did my submission not get judged?

Ok, so here is another idea:

Brutal Giant
$9 Action
You may trash a Treasure to gain a Gold. You may trash a Victory to gain a Duchy. You may trash a card in your hand or from play (including this) for +1 Villager.
oh! sorry about that. 8/10, the trashing focus is cool.

Thanks to everyone for their submissions!

Painter
$9 Action
Choose one: +2 Cards; or gain a card costing up to $5.
____
During a player's Buy phase, this costs $2 less per Action card they have in play.

Pretty good, actually! Needs an Asterisk in it's cost, but that's a minor nitpick. I do like 5-gainers. 8/10



weirdly enough, this was the last asterisk in this contest. Effect needs a little rewording to make it closer to WotChameleon. Works good as a Lost City type thing. 8/10



Quote
Mineshaft - $9
Project

When you play a Treasure, you first get +$1.
When you gain a Victory card, +1 Buy.

I like this quite a lot! 9/10



Idk if this is worth $10, but it's close enough. really cool effect! 9/10

Quote
Leprechaun Gold
$9 - Event
Gain a Gold and a card costing up to $5.

11$ worth of stuff for $9. Pretty good! 8/10

Gentrification
Project
$12

Set aside a non-Victory Action card from the supply next to this and place your project cube on it.
_______________________________________________________________________________
When scoring +2VP per card you have from that pile.

Nice, a Obelisk you choose; Honestly the fact that this takes a card out of it's pile is what brings this down for me; well, unless in setting it aside you also gain it, giving you +2vp. At 12 this probably never gets picked up, sadly enough. 6/10



Pledge just doesn't seem worth it to me. why would I buy this instead of just gaining a Province? I do like the next time mechanic though. 6/10


Metropolis
Action - $10
+3 Actions
+3 Cards
+3 Buys
You may trash up to 3 cards from your hand.

I like this a lot! just a big Lost City with a lot of extra stuff! 10/10



I like night cards, but this just seems so close to perfect for it's cost. 9/10 needs just one little something to kick it up. Idk what.



Summon but it's actually good. 10/10



I actually thought stonecrafting was pretty good. Golden Ticket is really cool though. 10/10 honestly.

Thank you, everyone, for your submissions!

Winner: Gubump with Ceremony.

Runner-ups: Udzu with Wonka Bar/ Golden Ticket and NoMoreFun with Metropolis

The End of the Rainbow
Project 2%

At the start of your buy phase, you may pay 9% to choose 1 of the following to gain onto your deck: A price, A Spirit, A Loot, A Heirloom, A Zombie, A Wish. Then you may take one of the following: Flag, Key, Treasure Chest, Lost in the Woods.

It gives you everything you would ever want. The Project part makes it so you cant just take it with a lucky early hand. Of course some cards here are better then others, but none are trash. Let me know what you think and if this qualifies! You might pick it up early, but i might have the golem problem , you never know when to weaken youself to potentially make yourself stronger after!

Sadly this does not qualify; the 9 (or greater) needs to be in it's initial cost, not it's upkeep. I like the idea, though, keep this in your back pocket!
