Arrested Dominionment

I hope there is more overlap between these two fandoms than just me and my friend Cody, who gets all kinds of credit for throwing out the Banana Stand card idea (there’s always money in it) in an email thread a few weeks ago. Either way, this was fun and a few of the cards would even be pretty cool to play with (GOB’s Card Trick raises all kinds of strategy questions! And I love the idea of scrambling to trash Iraqi Model Homes at the end of the game, or of a dumb jock card like STEVE HOLT! that looks good but isn’t actually all that useful).

I had to do lots of research for this post, by which I obviously mean rewatching the first one and a half seasons and playing crazy amounts of Dominion. Hope y’all like it.

    Stair car: try gaining the copper first and reducing the cost to 3.

    other card ideas:
    The C word (duration): +Action, +Card, +Buy, +$1, At the start of your next turn: -$2, cost $3
    Hot seaman: +Action, +4 Cards, +Buy, Do not draw any cards during this clean-up step, cost: $5
    A cooler full of evidence (treasure): $2, Gain a Duchy, cost: $5
    Hermano (attack): Each player (including you) chooses a card from their hand and puts it face up in the center of the table, any Estates are trashed, replace them with Curses. Then redistribute the cards so that every player gets one. If a player was given a Curse, it goes in his discard pile and he draws two cards, otherwise the card goes in his hand. cost: $4
    Always leave a note: +Action, +2Cards, Gain an Estate, cost: $4
    Dr. Funke’s 100% Natural Good Time Family Band Solution (reaction): +Card, +Action | If you are attacked, you may reveal this card and discard it to gain a VP token, cost: $3
    Light Treason: Flip a coin, Heads: +$4, Tails: Gain a curse, cost: $0
    The Lemon Grove (attack?): Choose an opponent. That player gains an Estate, and a Curse. During clean-up, this card is placed in the chosen players discard pile. cost:$2
    Motherboy: +Action, Each other player reveals the top card of their deck, you may then reveal a card from your hand. If your card costs more than any of the other revealed cards: +$3, +Buy, and each other player discards their revealed card. Otherwise, each other player puts their revealed card in hand. Either way, discard your card. cost: $4
    The Sword of Destiny!: Gain a gold in hand. cost: $6
    My socks are wet (reaction): +Action, +$2, Discard a card | When another player gains a card in their hand or on their deck, you may reveal this to make them discard that card. cost: $3

    other ideas to build cards around:
    hair plugs/GVH, Tunnel of Love Indubitably, Hop on, Live in, Narcoleptic strippers, Nevernude, cut-offs, The Aztec Tomb!, The Milford School, Anyong, Skip’s Scramble, Justice, the wetlands, Johnny Bark, Dong Tea.

      Nice, I like The Lemon Grove, it just keeps passing the useless land (estate) around. And good point about the stair car, after all, the point of the stair car was that it *wasn’t* expensive.

      I thought of The Aztec Tomb! as a card, and then thought, oh wait, it’s just a secret chamber :)

      Skip’s Scramble – shuffle one of each kingdom card together, deal them out evenly to all players?
