hello again!

what do you think is the best effect for an animal card?

a) draw 1 card from opponents hand!

b) draw 2 cards from opponents hand!

c) draw 1 card from opponents hand and 1 card from the pile

d) opponent gives you 2 cards from his hand


best regards

I like d all the effects are quite powerful but with this one as you give your opponent the choice not too powerful. Plus I don't like 'random' draws - choice is better in my opinion.

How about "e: None of the above"?

Out of all of them, I like "a" the best as written; a four-card swing is quite a powerful effect, so "b" and "d" are out. I'm not a huge fan of random draws from hand either, so why not modify "c" and have the effect as follows:

Opponent gives you 1 card from their hand and you draw 1 card from the pile.

This seems to be the most fair.

I vote for D.
Like the ideia for Vulture, Rhino and Hippo.

I'd go for d) - more in keeping with the existing cards; or, the suggestion made above to give one and draw oen from the deck.

While we're suggesting animals I would vote for either the Rock Hyrax (closest living relative to the elephant) or the Warthog (cos they look so cute running along in a line with their tails sticking up like radio aerials).

Great game by the way! How many cards will the expansion have? And will it be more of the same, or introduce new concepts?

Re: please discuss 3- an animal-card for the forthcoming exp
hello again!

thanks for the comments!
yes i had D) and wanted to know if possibility C) is more in your mind.
you want to know, which animal i have taken?
the chameleon with its snapping long tongue!? by the way michael (menzel) draws fantastic gemstoned-chameleons! sorry not choosing the rhino or the zebra .....
nono thats not right - the chameleon is the other new animal-card.

i have taken the FENNEK - a tricky small robber .......

best regards

Re: please discuss 3- an animal-card for the forthcoming exp
hello robert!




HELP!?
ok, while playtesting, we came up with a couple questions.
can you play a GHOST (like a guard but for people) on a GUARD?
then if so, can you play a GHOST on a GHOST? maybe the ghost can only be played on opponents turn, like a guard?

yes, the ghost can only be played on opponents turn!

also, im sure you can GHOST the new PIRATE.

yes!

but lets say i have 50 gold. i just sell a ware card for 12 giving me 62. but i dont want to finish over 60 so i play PIRATE, paying the 3 gold. but what if GHOST is played on the PIRATE? is the gold still lost?

no! the whole card effect is ignored!
you play the pirate
opponent can play the ghost - if he doesn´t
NOW YOU pay 3 gold and steal an utility



if there is a choice, whos choice is it and why?

??? i don´t know hat you mean!

obviously these are new cards and specific wording will probably clarify, but we are curious!

best regards rüdiger

thanks!
