#92 - Palace



Another prominent building set up on a pinnacle of rock. It sure would make you not want to travel having that nasty incline to manage so you could get home.

That is the end of group G.

#91 - Followers



This is the start of group F, 12 cards.

Where are they following her to? We can only guess. I think we have to assume this is some kind of unruly mob since the card is an attack but they aren't armed with anything other than banners and fruit and vegetables that I can tell. Perhaps she is like a Pied Piper.

#90 - Duplicate



None of my daughters was able to pick out the immediate problem with the duplicate. How the heck are they going to reproduce the spear? This is an awful lot of work for one guy.

#89 - Witch



That's some nice seaweed she has draped over her in various spots. She has a little bit of a butt chin going if you look closely. My daughters called the little creature being summoned an 'Evil Hello Kitty'. She's had some nice work done on her nails to get them that sharp.

#102 - Jester



I've always found this picture to be creepy.

This was my (halfhearted) prediction for number one! I have no idea what's going to happen now. Actually loads of cards I really like have gone now (Curse, Masquerade, Thief)

As will be seen in my next post, you can hardly fathom the mind of a teenager.

#88 - Patrician



The question in my mind is; how did Patrician end up at 88 when Patrician/Emporium and Emporium ended up at 310 and 298 respectively?

One of my daughters must have really hated the Emporium part of the scene. She rated Patrician 7 out of 7 but the other two cards 4 or worse. It's all very strange. As if there weren't enough evidence to reduce the credibility of this whole effort.

#87 - Legionary



As with Adventurer the cape is way too long. How could you even function with that thing flapping around? You'd step on it or have someone grab it and pull you down. Even if it's just ceremonial, you couldn't march around in that thing. The guy behind you would stomp on it and you'd end up on your face.

#85 - Warrior



Shooting down the walls of heartache....

Going into battle with your hair down is a bad idea. It's the same as the long cape, likely to get in your way or be used as a tool against you. She does have fabulous hair (I know it's hard to see) but this would be the time to keep it up.

#84 - Grand Market



My daughters say this looks like a scene from Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It's been so long since I've played the game that I can't remember. The guy on the left has a bit of a face like a sloth.

#83 - King's Court



My daughters say this reminds them of King Trident from Little Mermaid. I can see it a little. Either that's a dirt floor or they have terrible taste in carpet.

#92 - Palace



Another prominent building set up on a pinnacle of rock. It sure would make you not want to travel having that nasty incline to manage so you could get home.

This is one game theme I would like to see exploited, even though most people think medieval/Renaissance themes have been beaten to death: The evolution of a castle from a medieval fortified recluse to a baroque representative stately home. In the first part of the game, you'd rather like to have it on the steep hill right on the river you want to use for toll collection, but in the second half you find that the asset becomed a liability and your influential friends don't bother to visit you because of the climb. Abandoning the castle and rebuilding it on plains halfway through should be an (expensive) option.

I am fascinated with buildings which managed to work both ways during the ages, and the palace in the picture seems to try and do just that.

#82 - Caravan Guard



The horse has a very arched neck considering it doesn't look like the reins are being pulled at the moment. I'm glad that didn't go with the camel caravan theme. This is much nicer.

#80 - Keep



Why does it look like there has been frosting poured over the far half of the walls? I didn't really notice that at first. My daughters thought there should have been more uniformity in the helmet style for an army.

That is the end of group F.

We have now posted 300 cards. I'm going to take a minute and vent. It has been increasingly difficult to get my daughters together to process a batch of cards. Apparently they enjoyed making fun of the lesser art. Now I just get, "This is all good art, Dad." I have nearly run out of cards to post on a few occasions.

With 5 groups and 79 cards to go you can rest assured that we will finish. You can complain about a lot of things with our rankings, but you can't say we haven't been regular and diligent about posting cards. Hopefully my daughters will not be such pains about finishing. The last couple of groups have been very unpleasant to process and the commentary isn't very interesting once everyone has had to be brow-beaten into participating.

I always thought it was some kind of counterweight mechanism doing something in the tower.

The best reason to lynch Haddock is the meltdown we get to witness on the wagon runup. I mean, we should totally wagon him every day just for the lulz.

After a really long day at work, here is the start of group E, 15 cards.

Monument to teenage lameness.

Monument to stupidity.

Monument to whatever.

#77 - Rogue



I think borrowing the Duke's quilted shirt is a questionable fashion choice, but it is dark out so no one will really see it especially if you are going to sneak up on them and knife them from behind. I'm not quite sure what the setting here is. It almost looks like he is in a cave.

There's a tree growing out of the roof of the one hut. I'm sure that's not super unusual, but the trunk doesn't extend down through the hut. Maybe it's an antenna for the TV.

#75 - Outpost



I love the building. However, constructing those lower down parts of the structure would be extremely hard in this location. This would probably just be an awful place to live. It's not like you can get a boat into that swirling vortex of death. If that bridge goes down while you are in the building, you are totally up a creek without a paddle.
