Exactly the line on the card I was missing.

This is actually a good idea. It would save a lot of time, since I always start a new game anyway...

But it will never be in play during an opponent's turn.

Why? Clearly there was a joke about the card, yet you feel the need to point out semantics.

That saved time because it was too long to read, and I just played it no matter what the effect.

Well, the longer one will save more time in the long run. Maybe.

Which?
Action-Attack
Cost: 5

+2 cards
You play, as the dealer, a game of Three-Card Monte with each other player using two Curses and a Gold from the supply*. The other player gains the card they pick in-game. The other two cards return to the supply.

* - If there are fewer than 2 Curses in the supply when you would play Three-Card Monte, move the required number to the supply from, in order of preference: the trash, your discard pile, your deck (shuffle afterward). If there are still fewer than 2 curses or if the Gold pile is empty, +1 VP and terminate this action.

This gives me a "good" card idea:

Choose three non-empty supply piles. Each opponent gains a card from one of those piles of his or her choice.

Most of the time you'd choose, like, copper/curse/estate, but it is different if ruins are present, or potions, or undesirable alt-vp, or if its a slog board, or ...

Seems like it could be a really interesting effect?

I like how in the border pillage, the guy's about to jump off the cliff. And the farming pillage woman is apparently a giant, so I don't know how successful the attack will be...

Wining Village
Cost: 1 Potion
Action

+1 card
+2 actions
You may trash this card. If you do, you may reveal up to three Victory cards from your hand. +1 VP for each Victory card revealed.

That actually doesn't sound too bad.  It's a pile of dutchies which costs potions and don't take up handspace, at best - but uyou still need to actively green to make best use of it.  Maybe a slightly bigger cost, but it could be pretty interesting.

The VP mechanic might be fun, but the Village aspect of it is sort of at odds with what you're trying to do. I suppose you could get them early-ish and use them as Villages once or twice before you start trashing them hard, but then they cost you way too much.

That was Page 32, bro. But I hear you.

Oh, I thought of a different version of a card in that comment:

Spoiler
Cost: 1
Action-Attack

Reveal a major development in a movie or TV series. If any other player is upset to receive this information, reveal the top five cards of his or her deck and put them back in the same order, then reveal their hand.

Plot developments from the same TV series or movie cannot be revealed by Spoiler more than once in a game.

Spoiler Warning
Cost: 1
Action-Duration

+1 action
If another player plays Spoiler while this is in play, you may plug your ears and sing or hum Stars And Stripes Forever at any volume until Spoiler resolves.
At the start of your next turn, +1 coin
