A few cards of each color worth two jewels but -1 point. What do you think?

What exactly do you mean?

a) one card could produce two of one color
b) one card could produce one choice of two colors
c) one card only cost 2 to buy

I think only option c would qualify for a -1 point not breaking the game. The other options would need -2 or -3 to negate the power.

I think he was meaning "a".

I meant A. Why do you feel that would break the game?

Why do you feel Splendor needs an expansion?

That's a bit of a non sequitur. That said, after many plays it's a bit samey but I still enjoy it. It would be nice to add an element to the game that gives it some freshness without taking away from the overall elegance of the game.

Did he ever say Splendor needed an expansion? All he did was give an idea for one. He never said the base was unplayable or bad.

And keep in mind that lots of good base games get expansions anyway.

I'm changing my deck to have a different mixture of cards including double mines and gold mines.

A "double mine" would be worth two gems of that color, but it would cost about twice as much as a normal mine from that row and would only count as one card for determining Noble bonuses.

A "gold mine" would be worth one gem of any color, but it would cost about three times as much as a normal mine from that row and would not count for determining Noble bonuses.

I think the idea of a "cursed" mine is awesome. Splendor is great and more varied gameplay would make it awesome.

These are all good ideas for an official expansion.
