Variants and Fan Cards / Re: Fan Card Mechanics Week 15: Level Up
« on: July 19, 2021, 11:53:31 am »
Oh I just saw this topic, how cool! I've idly thought about this mechanic from time to time since 2018 and wondered if it would have been better if the rule had been, uh, using this terminology, "when you buy a Level card, add a Level token to that card's supply pile in addition to gaining it." Something like that. That would take away the choice factor but it would sure be much faster. Ofc this way you can have only individual cards include that, "when you gain a $cardname by buying it" or whatever.

Oh, that's interesting. I know my web hosting is somewhere in the process of being transferred to another company... I wonder if that's involved somehow, if the remote access to the fonts on my site was suddenly messing up for people. Glad to hear the problem's been avoided now though.

Shael: I tried your image URL with Shard's version and it works for me, but it does take several seconds to load that particular image. Maybe because I'm in the US and I'm guessing zupimages is in France or somewhere.

The main issue with allowing direct image upload from computers is that it makes it hard to distribute custom cards. Currently, once you've finished setting up all the properties of your custom card, all those properties are encoded directly in the current URL, so you can copy it or bookmark it or whatever. That doesn't work so well if the image came from your computer and doesn't have a permanent address on the internet. Here's shard's github issue about it, though.

When you gain a card, you may reveal this from your hand, to exchange the card for a Silver.
No longer goes infinite when combined with Forum and a cost reducer. Probably for the best.

I had this thread some years back, before "Project" became a real kind of card-shaped thing. In retrospect...
Quote
When you buy a Project card, you have a choice: either you gain the card as usual, or you add one of your Project tokens to that card's supply pile.
...the game would probably be more fun if you did both, not either.

Adaptive cards is another good thread.

I wrote my own some years ago, but it hasn't been updated to include any cards/sets I don't own.

What I'm curious about is how far the effects reach. If I apply Chameleon to Crown in my Buy phase, leading me to play a treasure card twice, does Chameleon automatically extend to any +$ that treasure card gives me? It was following Crown's instructions that directly caused me to play the treasure card.

Do I gain a card costing less than $6, the cost of the card when I trashed it (hey look I could gain a Wayfarer), or do I gain a card costing less than $3, the current cost of the card I trashed?
Probably the latter? By the same token, if you Develop a Wayfarer, the second card you gain would cost the same amount the Wayfarer did when you trashed it.

I'm sure there are plenty of ways to gain a card and then change how much that same card would cost--various Peddler tricks, for example--but I'm guessing none of that matters and all Wayfarer cares about is how much the gained card cost at the time it was gained?

Guessing also that overpay doesn't matter and if you pay $5 while buying a Doctor then Wayfarer still costs $3?

Less sure about what happens if you put the Ferry token on the Wayfarer pile. Suppose you haven't gained any cards yet in a turn, and buy a reduced-cost Wayfarer for $4... would a second Wayfarer then cost $2, and a third $0?

That's a rough match for the printed images, but I generally prefer the digital colors, since people are more accustomed to seeing those on screens and they're often more legible. Try this.

Hoping for a Wolf card that eats your Goat if you leave the two together, and likewise a Cabbage card that your Goat eats.

Dominion shows up briefly in this promo video for the anime "Afterschool Dice Club" about girls playing board games.

It will be first available at the Internationale Spieletage 2019 in Essen.
(Which is in October.)

This thread has now been stickied, presumably in response to some feature or other added by Shard of Honor... italics, maybe? In response, I've edited the first post to include links to Shard's fork at its home page and also its announcement in this thread.

The suggested age range for Empires is only 14+. Do players under the age of 18 need parental consent to buy Wedding?

My expectation has always been that if people expect to want to make the same sort of card over and over, they can just use dedicated bookmarks in lieu of templates, e.g. Treasure, Landmark.

Some great additions there, thanks for sharing! The Position X/Position Y/Zoom sliders in particular are exactly what I've always had in mind but never gotten around to implementing... something about their CSS may be a bit iffy, though, because the two form columns are wildly different widths for me, at least viewing in Chrome. I've also noticed that changing the Secondary Color doesn't work properly when Split Position is anything other than Half, and for that matter, Split Position probably shouldn't be an available field for card styles when it doesn't do anything.

ETA: also, you've got a problem where messing with the image's position/size can cause it to be drawn behind the transparent corners of the card

If a Landmark just said, "Trash a card", would every card in the game be trashed the instant the game starts?
No, you'd spend all the time in that instant trashing all the aces of spades around the world.

my standards for opponents are "want to play dominion and are in the same place as me and also one or more dominion boxes"

tbh I don't remember the last time I played Dominion, on account of a lack of opponents
