Words in card names

This business again, updated for Plunder!

A few words debut right at 2 this year—that is, they have two appearances in Plunder after not appearing at all in any previous cards or card-shaped things: bury, figure, jewel, and of course loot. Ship, master, mine, and village all go up by 2 as well; and silver appears on the list for the first time, as Silver Mine is the first card with silver in its name since Silver itself.

would have never guessed that "gift" was the 3rd most prevalent Dominion card word.

This is just card names, so the Boons skew it heavily toward "Gift". And of course the Ways are #1.

Update for the second edition of Cornucopia & Guilds and recent promos. "Farm" has moved up two slots due to Farm and Farmhands; "ferry" makes its debut due to Ferryman; and "march" is a new edge case.
