Carcassonne
Action $5
Place a Meeple ontop of a Kingdom card, gain one point per card left in the supply at the end of the game.
If more than one Meeple is on the pile, each player gains the number of points equal to cards in that supply.

This is actually a really cool idea.  To make it playable, it would probably have to be an action VP card "worth 1 VP for every X cards left in a pile marked by your [Meeple] token", and the action simply allows you to place or move your single token.

Negotiate
Action - $6
Choose a player at random.  That player reveals an attack card or a negotiate card.  If that player has neither in hand, that player reveals his hand, puts it aside and draws a new hand of 5.  Repeat until that player reveals a an attack or negotiate card or until the draw pile is exhausted.  Discard all cards put aside in this way.

If that player reveals an attack card: take compensation (lose all vp tokens on your vp mat.  Draw that many cards from that player's hand.)

If that player reveals an attack card: you have one minute to make a deal.  You can trade up to one Colony and any number of cards in hand in a deal.  A deal is successful if at least one colony or one card is exchanged.  If a deal is not made both players lose 3 vp tokens.


(Based on Cosmic Encounter)

Windmill
Action - ?

When a player announces they want to buy a Windmill, all players secretly choose 0+ cards from their hand as their bid.  Bids are revealed simultaneously.  The player who bid the highest Coin value discards those cards, and gains the Windmill.  In the case of a tie, nobody gains the Windmill, and the active player must buy another card.  If a non-active player gains the Windmill, the active player can either buy another card or try to buy the next Windmill.  No player can gain more than one Windmill in the course of one player's turn.

Each of the 10 Windmill cards is unique and they are stacked as follows:
1st (top card) - gain a Silver.
2nd - gain a Silver, put it in your hand.
3rd - +1 Action; gain a Silver.
4th - +1 Action; gain a Silver and put it in your hand.
5th - gain a Gold.
6th - gain a Gold; put it in your hand.
7th - +1 Action; gain a Gold.
8th - +1 Action; gain a Gold and put it in your hand.
9th - +2 Actions; gain a Silver in hand.
10th - +2 Actions; gain a Gold.

Based on Power Grid.  The idea is that normally cards are always the same so that player order won't matter, but in this case, since each card is auctioned off, everyone has the same chance to get any given card.  You might announce you are buying one Windmill, hoping you will be outbid and you can then grab the next one. 

(I seem to remember seeing somewhere, someone saying Windmill would be a good name for a Power Grid card, since Power Grid does have wind power)

But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

I like how simply this is represented, but I wonder if $5 isn't too much for this card.
On the other hand, if it cost $4, it could lock a game very quickly and reliably with Torturer OoO And I certainly would forestall picking up a Silver to explode to 8 cards on turn 3, playing a Swindler or whatever and buying a Gold... or trash Estates with a Steward and then buy a Mint.
Maybe $5 is right. There are fair odds that I'd buy a Windfall World over a Festival in many games.

Except that it doesn't. As written, it gets cleaned up at the the end of the turn it's played.

I think I see, so the duration effect isn't enough to justify being a duration?

The trouble is that there's nothing on the wording of the card to say that the effect lasts any longer than the end of the turn in which it is played. If you want it to have an effect on a later turn, you have to explicitly give it one.

ETA: A potentially more serious problem with this card is that in a clear majority of games, it's just going to be a $4 card reading "+1 Card, +1 Action" and be left untouched.
