Hireling Guild looks like a sensible idea, apart from it needing to be per N favours, instead of per favour.

I'm guessing it's such a good idea that in due course we'll see a Secret History that explains the difficulty is finding a workable value for N.

Possessor's guild - Ally

At the start of your buy phase, you may spend 6 favours. If you do, you may have the player to your left take an extra turn after this one, in which you can see all cards they can and make all decisions for them. Any cards or debt they would gain on that turn, you gain instead; any cards of theirs that are trashed are set aside and put in their discard pile at end of turn.

Good thing it's not "per 4 Favors you have (rounded down)", that would be way too weak for this thread. Would probably even need to give +1 Buy to compare favorably to League of Bankers

This is super-busted. Even a card that got you the exact card you wanted without the deck-control of the other revealed cards (e.g. one that shuffled those cards into your deck) would be extremely strong. The discard + order makes it way stronger.

You can also name a card you know you don't have, which lets you reveal your entire discard pile/deck, discard any of the junk/bad cards, then order all of your good cards, effectively setting up all your turns until the next shuffle. In addition to being insanely powerful, in a lot of games it would end up taking a huge amount of time. (I'm reminded of the original version of the Aldrich Ames card from Twilight Struggle, which had to be "remixed" because it could easily take an hour to resolve [I am told; I've only played with the new version]). This is before triggering Patron or on-discard abilities, or considering guessers (Wishing Well/Mystic/Sorceress).

Idk about the card actually being good without the discard+order. With the discard+order it's totally busted, obviously.

Megalopolis  Action--Duration--Attack $5

+1 Card
+2 Actions

If three or more piles are empty, gain a non-Victory card costing up to $5.

If four or more piles are empty, you may play an Action from your hand.

If five or more piles are empty, if the previous turn was not yours, take a turn after this one.

If six or more piles are empty, you may trash a card from your hand and gain a card costing up to $4 more than it.

If seven or more plies are empty, when this is in play, at the start of each other player's next turn, they gain a Curse.

__________________

At the end of the game, this is worth 5 VP for every five empty piles in the Supply, rounded down.

Acres of Immortality Victory - $6

While there are any copies of this in the Supply, the game cannot end.

Woah that's actually really interesting!  I wonder how that would affect the game.

It's probably a bad card as is because in slogs it will take forever, but maybe if they get naturally depleted over time or something. The idea to add something that prevents game end by usual means is not obviously bad.

I do think this thread has lots its purpose because it was originally "hilariously awful ideas that are obviously awful" and now it's something else

Yes the idea was for this thread to be a collection of "gag" cards, rather than variants except the poster has low esteem for the card idea they are posting.
