Is the anything in the rules about resolving start-of-turn effects?  I mean, the duration cards that we have really do not need any special rule, but this seems like it needs something in the rules to clarify when exactly it should happen.  Or if you get your choice of when it happens

Quote from: Seaside Rules
If multiple cards resolve at the same time on your turn (for example, Duration cards that do something “at the start of your next turn”), you choose what order to resolve them. A card that affects multiple players during your turn still resolves in player order, affecting you first if it affects all players and then proceeding clockwise.

The order of start-of-turn effects never matters when using just Seaside cards, but with Prince it does. You can resolve your Prince effects before, after, or between your Duration effects. And if you have multiple Prince effects, you can resolve some Durations between them.

Mechanically it's pretty easy. Set it aside with a card, then play that card at the start of each turn. It doesn't work on Durations or one-shots.

IRL it's easiest to put the Princed card on top of the Prince and leave them in your play area so that you remember to do it each turn.

It conforms to the principle that $8 cards begin with the letter P.
I guess I have to start calling them "Plääni" and "Pkulkukauppias" then...

Really interesting card.  Obviously princing a throne room, spy, scheme (that would be really nice) or other such card is going to be amazing.  I would be careful about princing a masquerade or ambassador though
Even a Throne Room could be bad.

What happens if you Prince an Island? You don't discard the Island from play, but every turn you do set the Island aside.

…Huh. Good call. Obviously the intent is that you stop playing it if you fail to set it aside with Prince. Still, good catch.

it seems best to target cards that are strong but unreliable, since reliability is always a non-issue, smithy seems perfect. also, cards that like a 5-card hand much more than a 4 card hand, like coppersmith, or storeroom.

and dont forget the prince->beggar->gardens rush :P

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

Hah, you underestimate Beggar. In fact, I'd love to have a Prince of Beggars even without Gardens. With an extra $3 to spend every turn, you can pretty reliably get to $8 with just a few Silvers in your deck.

Prince + Counting House!  It needs a bit of price reduction to get moving, but finally a real Counting House combo :)

A Prince of Crossroads counters this pretty well.

I recognize this card from the Outtakes. A variant of this is in the "Orphans" section of the outtakes:


Prince - $6 - Action
Set aside this and an action card from your hand costing up to $5. Play it at the start of each of your turns.


Quote from Donald X. himself:
"Prince was cool but really could only exist as a unique card like a prize; otherwise people would always be Princing Princes."

You proved yourself wrong, and I thank you for it. Really awesome card. Practically a 1-card expansion given how intense it is.

It's interesting to compare the price of the 2 variants, and how the older version let you set aside a $5.

Oh, that would be really nice indeed. Scheme is probably the best target for Prince.

Just think of how much this will help two-card combos! Prince of Scavengers/Chancellors loves Stash as well as the Prince of Counting Houses (which incidentally sounds like a terribly boring job).

I think this is the Prince of the golden decks. Prince/Goons Golden Deck sounds especially awesome.

Prince/Princess sounds extremely awesome.

prince of herbalist is actually super amazing.  province/colony every turn once you have your golds/silvers/plats (or whatever you need to get to 8 or 11) in play
