First of all ... Gelukkig nieuw jaar!

I was soaking in the bath when I suddenly thought about all the different types of card there might be. How many? What are they? I know that there are cards which are more than one, but it's the basic elements, about which I was pondering:
In no particular order ...

Treasure
Victory
Action
Curse
Prize
Ruin
Shelter
Reaction
Duration
Knight

That makes 10, which was my first instinct for the how many question.

What have I omitted?

In the meantime, have a happy new year, much dominioning and can't wait for guilds!

Potion is a Treasure, not a separate type of card.

Well, it's Ruins, not Ruin, and you left out Attack and Looter. But I think that's it, not including Guilds, which may or may not have additional types.

thanks for that ... you are right, I was just being lazy omitting the 's's after Ruin and I totally forgot about including Attack and Looter ... which makes 12 now ... until we get guilded [or is it gilt ... or just plain guilt, but we can repent of those; surely!]

Treasure
Victory
Action
Curse
Prize
Ruins
Shelter
Reaction

Knights
Attack
Looter

As long is it isn't gelded, I'll be fine.

Since we are getting particular about spelling, should we also note that it should be "Action-Attack" instead of "Attack" since it's predominately posted as such on the cards? :D

And since we are doing "Action-Attack" we must be compelled to post "Action-Attack-Knight", "Action Reaction" and "Action-Attack-Looter"...

See what genie you let out of that lamp? lol.

Each card type is distinct. For example, Moat says, "When another player plays an Attack card," not "When another player plays an Action-Attack card." A card can have multiple types, and so far all Attack cards are also Action cards, but it wouldn't necessarily have to be so. Plus, some have a third type and one even has a fourth type.

You were the one who made that "guess cards from Dark Ages" contest weren't you? You should make a contest to come up with a Treasure/Attack card.
