Happy Halloween! Here's a Dominion kingdom for the holiday, from me and LastFootnote. (Costumed goes on the Horde of Kids.)

With Horde of Kids, we now have a second card with the Curse type. So we now finally have to know... does Witch give players a card named "Curse", or a card with type "Curse"?

And can it give players a card with the type "Curse" and the name "Chewbacca"?

For Candy we need to figure out how many copies of Copper (and all the other Treasures) there are in the world so we know the odds of getting each one.  Same goes for virtual money with Capitalism.  Also Chewbacca.

Hmm, I had assumed that the random choice would be made by all existing treasures having equal odds of being chosen, but I can see your interpretation as valid as well.

Huh, I was just playing a game online, and suddenly every card was named Chewbacca. Someone, somewhere in the world must have been trying out the Kingdom.

If only I had had a Chewbacca (Mystic) or a Chewbacca (Sorceress) in my hand to play at the time. :)

I for one would prefer a Chewbacca (First Mate). Which, funnily enough, is very flavorful.

Play Soul Prison, and when Capital is going to give me debt, I just look out the window.

Magic Trick combos with Patron but there must be a better way

(also my Literature Club card is feeling very vindicated by Chewbacca)

I want to draw my deck by playing Horde of Kids over and over as a treasure in the buy phase.

Open Attic+Silver or Attic+Horde of Kids, then piledrive the Hordes of Kids, using the trait to play them as Great Pumpkins and All Hallows Eves sometimes.

chewbacca attacks your opponent's crossroads (but it makes their fools gold a lot better)

I thought you thought it was a slip because I said 'Jake's partners' instead of 'Roadrunner7671.'

I don't follow.
Fool's Gold looks for 'Fool's Gold', 'Provinces', and 'Gold', depending on the time. If all cards in the supply are named 'Chewbacca', none of those checks would ever occur, so Fool's Gold is completely neutered.

Crossroads always checks to see if this is the first time you played a 'Crossroads'. However, with this, you played 'Chewbacca', not 'Crossroads',  and thus the check fails even the first time you play it, so you're right that it attacks Crossroads.

So, any card that says 'Gain an 'X'' wouldn't fire, whether that's Silver, Gold, Copper, Duchy, Estate, etc. But since card types are not affected.
Tournament can still win you a Prize (JUST KIDDING, your Province is now named 'Chewbacca', but at least the Peddler effect can't be stopped).
Dark Ages and Plunder cards can still gain Ruins and Loot, as those are card types.
Curses also are unaffected, as Curse is both the card name AND the card type.
You could still gain any Spirit from exorcist, but all other named spirit gainers fail. Leprechaun won't actually get you a wish if you play him just right either. Basically every card from Cornucopia is thus rendered worthless. You'll always guess right for Sorceress, but

Cards that benefit(?):
Farmland can now pick up itself when you buy it and use its insta-remodel effect, allowing you to keep chaining it.
Wishing Well becomes a full Laboratory
Mystic and Sorceress also work every time.
Rats can't pick up another Rats, so is just a nice cantrip trasher
Doctor just trashes the top three cards or rearranges them


I need a rules clarification on the meaning of 'Copy'
Can I choose to discard every single card I have in Exile when I gain any other card?
Can I buy a cheap card then Duplicate it to grab a Province?
Does Warlord make it so your opponent can only play two cards total?
Or does 'Copy' check on everything, name, types, card text, etc...?

fool's gold always gives you $4 with the same reasoning you correctly apply to crossroads

Nowhere does it say that a card can't have several names (just as it can have several types), and Night of the Wookie doesn't say "Chewbacca instead of their normal name", so I would assume all cards keep their name and gain the name Chewbacca in addition.
