Weekly Design Contest #195 Old Dominion Had A Farm
« on: August 09, 2023, 04:35:53 pm »

This week's contest:
Design an animal themed card!

There are some cards in dominion that are animals. This week i want you all to design a new one! Altough this isnt a strict "make a card that does X" design challenge, animal cards in dominion tends to have these traits in common:
  • They tend to be simple. +1 Card or + Actions.
  • But they also have some a distinct easy to understand twist: Rats makes you trash another non rat card in hand and gain a rat. Sheepdoog is +2 Cards but lets you play it for free when you gain a card. Horse is a one shot lab

A list of Current animal cards to refresh everyone. Google them for reference!
  • Horse. Black cat. Rats. Sheepdog. Monkey. Guarddog. magpie. Goat. Faithfull hound. Bat(?). Camel Train.

Good luck everyone! Entries will end at 17th August with 24 hours warning. My judgement post should be up by 18th or 19th august.

Edit: you may submit a Way.
Landscapes, projects etc may not be submitted

Timid Steed
- Action Reaction
+3 Cards
___
At the start of your turn, you may discard a Treasure to play this from your hand.

Notes: I had to make a blue card! Timid Steed can be a Smithy or, at the start of your turn, a Stables. Because you need to meet the Stables discarding condition at the start of your turn, it's harder to chain them at the start of your turn than it would be to play a similar number of Stables (consider a deck with other cards with +Cards besides Timid Steed). It makes up for that in the versatility of being playable as Smithy too.

Termite • $4 • Action
+1 Card
+1 Action
If the Estate pile is empty, gain a Termite; otherwise gain an Estate.
You may trash a Victory card or Termite from your Hand for +1VP.

:) I'm wondering if this could cost $3.

Who? Who played a card costing $2? The Owl usually only draws at Night (and can help set up your next turn), but if you're clever, you can awaken it at other times too.

I like this a lot.  I was going to make a comment about how it compares favorably to Night Watchman. But even setting aside Owl’s reaction and NW’s gain-and-play, any unplayable cards in your hand count toward Owl’s 6 cards, putting it in a good spot I think.

Way of the Crow

Look at the top 3 cards of your deck. Discard any number and put the rest back in any order.

- Looking for things that aren't covered by existing ways. A deck inspector is one example.

Koi
$3D2 - Treasure - Victory
+$2
You may discard a Treasure card and take 1 Debt to gain a Koi.
Worth 1VP


Exploring the theme of animal breeding; the debt trick is to reduce the 5-2 advantage.

Golden Retriever

Action - Reaction ($2)

+2 Cards
Discard a card. Look through your discard pile and put a card from it into your hand.
---
When something causes you to reveal this (using the word "reveal"), you may play it.


Golden Retrievers are good at well... retrieving things. This one can fetch stuff from your discard pile, but first you gotta throw something for it to bring back. You're still working on that trick though; sometimes it will bring you back something else instead. They also really like attention, and so will be glad to perform a trick when shown off (revealed) to your friends.

I thought about pricing this at $3, but I think $2 is better for this card as I'm pretty sure cards that reveal are a little scarcer than gainers.

A different Retriever, because I didn't see AJL's entry when making this. This one fetches stuff that you threw away, but might grab the wrong things.

Dont think i have to say this, but just to be clear: Its fine that both cards use the name "retriever". AJLs entry has "golden retriever" to distinguish it, if they both had retriever as name i would honestly ask that either of you changed the name so i could distunguish them easier.

Well, I have a split pile of Livestock, but it's based too closely on someone else's idea for me to feel okay entering it in a contest. Then I have the Flock of Ducks project, but I just used that for the previous contest. hmmm...

Here's something to help you find what you need:

Homing Pigeon
$3 - Action - Duration
+$1.
Now and at the start of your next turn: Look at the top 3 cards of your deck, put one in your hand and discard the others.

Yellow Cat
Action - $2
+2 Cards
You may set this aside to gain a Yellow Cat. Return all set aside Yellow Cats to the supply at end of turn.

Edit: Changed to cap the number of times you can play the "same" Yellow Cat each turn. If you buy a single Yellow Cat, it has nine lives.

Usually Peddler variants cost $5. How do you justify this costing less?

Old Mister Johnson had troubles of his own
He had a yellow cat which wouldn't leave its home;
He tried and he tried to give the cat away,
He gave it to a man goin' far, far away.

But the cat came back the very next day,
The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay away.
Away, away, yea, yea, yea

The atom bomb fell just the other day,
The H-Bomb fell in the very same way;
Russia went, England went, and then the U.S.A.
The human race was finished without a chance to pray.

But the cat came back the very next day,
The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay away.
Away, away, yea, yea, yea
