I got another idea for Silver Mine

Idea 4
Quote
Silver Mine (Treasure, $5)
Gain a card costing less than this to your hand.

With this, it can also serve as an expansive nonterminal Workshop if there are no interesting Treasures to gain. And of course, it gets quite nuts with stuff like Villa.

Soooo Sculptor.  Add a dead action to your hand, or add a non-terminal treasure.  Very very similar.

I'm hoping if there's a Guilds 3rd edition (with or without other expansions mixed in), it will have events.

As a pure space saver:

"Masterpiece"
Event - $3+
Gain a Copper and set it aside. Put it into your hand at end of turn.
_____________
Overpay: Gain a Silver per $1 overpaid

I'm not personally a fan of Doctor - way too luck based early game and the overpay is clunky. But I like the premise of overpay for deck filtering.

"Doctor"
Event - $3+
Gain a card costing up to $5. Each other player gets +1 Coffers
_______
Overpay: Reveal a card from the top of your deck per $1 overpaid. Trash or discard any number of them.

I think it's simpler and more fun this way, particularly in games with Night cards.

Farming Village
Action - $4
+2 Actions
Reveal cards from your deck until you reveal an Action or Treasure, then put all of the revealed cards into your hand.

I like the ideas, but you don't need to resort to the rulebooky "Overpay: ..." for this. You can just add to the event's regular instructions: "You may overpay".

In fact, the whole "Overpay: ..." formulation only exists for Stonemaison. For the other three cards, they could just go with "When you gain this during the Buy phase, you may spend $. For every $1 spent, ...".

To replace both Bandit and Bureaucrat in a hypothetical base 3e

Wage Thief
$5 Action - Attack
Gain a gold onto your deck. Each other player with 5 or more cards in hand puts a card from their hand onto their deck.

Working on a Dark Ages 2nd edition for my own amusement. I didn't get rid of Rats but I changed it subtly, and now it has a normal 10 card supply pile (freeing up some space). Now there's a way to trash Rats even in a game without any other trashers (thematically, the Rats starve and die once there's nothing for them to eat). The returning to pile means the Rats are always there.

I'm curious what a proper price for a 'regular-sized' turnip would be. 
That is:
Turnip
+1 coffers
+1$ per coffers you have. 
It would then be a strictly better silver, so probably $5?
Maybe even $6.

I'm afraid Turnip wouldn't work as a kingdom card at any price, since it's too easy to turn them into super-Platina if you have 3 or more copies, which would be a boring one-card strategy. (Huge Turnip works as a Reward because you can only get one copy, or occasionally two in multiplayer.)
Maybe you could make a split pile where one card gains coffers and the other card gives +1$ per coffers you have...

This sounds interesting. But it's still very dangerous to play it with an all-Rats hand, since you'll have to trash the card it draws unless it's also a Rats. So you could easily be forced to trash a Province with it.

Maybe switch the order of card draw and trashing to prevent this?

I am thinking about a hypothetical Dark Ages 2E, and one of the cards I can see getting cut is Graverobber. This card is very wordy and its abilities get rarely used in tandem. And it's also just pretty weak overall. So I decided to split the abilities into two parts.

Quote
Graverobber first half ($4, Action - Reaction)
Gain a non-Victory card from the trash onto your deck.
-
After playing a non-Duration Action card, you may trash that card and discard this from your hand for +3 Cards.

Quote
Graverobber second half ($5, Action)
Trash a non-Victory card from your hand. Gain a card costing up to $3 more.

Gotta disagree. Whenever I go for Graverobber, I use both abilities.

Royal Galley
Action/Duration - $4
+1 Card
You may play an Action from your hand. If it isn't a Duration, set it aside to play it at the start of your next turn.
