Beggar can provide fodder for Mercenary, which combos pretty nicely with Poor House.

There is already a thread on "fixing" cards, and the topic has been mentioned several times. Your specific fix for Scout, in particular, was brought up many many times.

Feast implies trashing. But cost reduction + gainers will easily do it, and there are gainers thatncan gain 5s (haggler). With just one action: play bridge and 9 talismans, buy igg.

Copper, if you played a lot of kc-coppersmiths before.

Edit: sorry, not an action

I say gg when I ride my bike. When I am happy. When the day feels too long.

Mmm, gg is starting to feel like a female-exclusive hygiene product.

I actually think neither that or a Bane technically works for the clarified wording, because no card is triggered, and nothing special happens when your opponent plays the Young Witch or the Tournament (but after he has gotten +1 action or +2 cards and discarded 2 cards). Though being technically correct hasn't traditionally been an issue in this thread. If Bane and Province work, then arguably Curse should work too because of Mountebank and any card should work because of Torturer, Bishop, Governor and Vault, since Market Square is revealed by discarding it and Fool's Gold is revealed by trashing it and those are Reactions.

I guess it is not so much of a stretch to request "reveal" to be actually mentioned in the card. Nowhere does it say that all Reactions should count as revealable.

What is the most # of cards that can be in one's deck, in a 2-players game?

At the end of the game, all of them, considering Rats in the supply, Plat+Colony, Potions, Ruins and a full BM deck, plus starting cards for both players (you can steal the starting cards with Masq one by one by placing all your stuff in the NV mat). All madman, spoils and mercenaries (use Rogue to get Urchins and Hermits back from the trash). It is not difficult to empty the supply completely in the last turn by playing 10 highways and 9 KCed-Ironworks drawn from the NV mat. Of course, you should get all the prizes first.

I am lazy to do the exact math.

(1) I realize now that my wording was unclear.  You are right in that all of those would work with the wording I chose.  But none of them are what I was thinking.  Here is my attempt to clarify (which still might not be absolutely clear, but I'll try): I am triggered by another player playing a card.  Upon this trigger, you may or may not reveal me (I'm pretty sure this fits the definition of the Reaction card).  I think this rules out everything you mentioned.

Revealing (or not) Province for opponent's Tournament works.

(1) I am not a Reaction card, but I can be revealed just like one.  That is, I am triggered at times when I am not visible to all players.  What am I?

This could be Copper, revealed from the discard through Counting House, Province, revealed from hand through Tournament. "Reveal just like a Reaction" is not clearly defined, but any card can really fulfill the condition "revealed at a time when it was not visible by all players" when it revealed from hand by playing Shanty Town, Menagerie, etc, from your own deck by Wandering Minstrel, Apothecary, etc, from opponent's deck by Rabble and the like, and maybe others.

(2) I am an Attack card, but you cannot ever play me.  What am I?

I hope this is some wordplay trick or something like that.

(3) I am in the supply.  I enable certain cards to be bought by a player, which cannot be bought by any other players for the rest of the game.  What am I?  Hint/clarification: I am similar to a Tournament, in that any given Prize can only be gained by 1 player (unless they're trashed then gained by different players, or passed to other players like with Masquerade), except the keyword here is *buy*, not gain.

Black Market is likely what you had in mind, although any Knight also enables a card (itself) to be bought solely by a player. Although, technically, you could return it to the supply with Ambassador and make it be bought by another player later, so BM is a better answer anyway.

I like to think of them as a special bonus for people playing in the league. I'll post them all here at the end of the season, I guess.

Ok, I will have to +1 your special notice instead in the mean time.

Game Reports / Gaining and trashing for Golds all Treasure Maps
« on: December 29, 2014, 10:05:54 am »

I gain all 10 TMs and connect 5 pairs to gain 20 Golds out of them (to Bishop away later).

The game itself is not so interesting, because I went heavy for SP and my opponent did not so it was over early, but dragged on because SP is slow and I kept building until I was sure I would not lose out of stupidity and/or bad luck.

TL;DR  Do we have an answer to #3?

There is none. The original idea was wrong, and so was every other proposal until now.

BTW, in the case of TR/KC/Procession on BoM as Ironworks, there is no need for any strange ruling. BoM never leaves play in between the two plays, so it IS an IW for the second play, regardless of whether TR/KC/Procession re-looks at it or has it locked (which matters for TR-Feast).

You make good points. I agree that terminal draw is an ideal target for Prince, since its biggest weakness of possibly drawing dead Action cards is negated. But it's not SO much better that I'll choose not to Prince a terminal Silver given that opportunity.

I would also play Prince even if payload is the only target, if that's what you meant. I think you almost always want to play it on the first turn you have a chance to, and that rule trumps the "Princing priority".

« on: December 24, 2014, 07:38:30 pm »
That's wrong. BoM is already Ironworks so you have to play it as Ironworks the second time, independently of whether or not there are other cards costing 4 or less in the supply.

Aren't you putting the cart before the horse, or something? You play payload last because you play your draw first. But Princing a card throws all of that out the window. I'm thrilled with e.g. a Prince of Monuments.

Prince gives you a free action either way and lets you play a card for free. If you are playing an engine, and one that Princes the draw, you can probably play the Monument yourself, with the rest of your payload, at the end. If you Prince part of your payload, it is more likely that your engine stalls and you fail to play the rest of the payload (like, Treasures).

I see Princing payload in engines that fall apart when greening, like Apothecary or Minion. But Prince being their only support is probably way more rare than regular engines that keep work through the whole game.

I can see some strange golden deck-y Prince decks in which you get, for instance, Prince+Monument and set aside Prince+Monument everyturn or something like that, but it would not be the usual case.

Besides the arguments already given for junkers in particular, the most important part is that junkers are payload and you want to play payload last, so you want to prioritize Princing your +cards, and then your +actions, not your payload. I would say Princing a junker is an edge case even within the universe of pulling the single junker out of the Black Market.

Nice slip :). I agree it may appear much more important than other shuffle-luck stuff, but it is not.

I'm fine with agreeing to disagree.

I agree.

Princes can misfire when setting aside a card that always acts even though you may not want it to, such as a smugglers. Some actions, such as bishop maybe, are often best played at the end of a turn once a better selection of cards are drawn into hand.

This general statement also shows why +cards is one of the best choices for Prince in an engine: it is usually what you want to play first in your engine, as long as you have actions remaining (unless you want to TR/Procession/KC). Payload cards (like Attacks and Money) you usually want to play last.

Wikipedia (and the maker of the Take on Me video) claim that Take on Me was the original, but that one's pretty old.  If I can say that about something from 2009.

The "Total eclipse of the heart" one is much better though (not the original nor the song, but the achieved comedy).
