Yesterday we had two events (Wedding and Delve) available. They almost felt a little too good to be true (only mildly).
With 7 coin available ... We used Wedding for a gold and 1vp. It was only after a two of us had simply resigned ourselves to a simple gold, that our youngest pointed out the benefit of using Wedding.
Same son, then bought three silvers with his 6 to spend using Delve.
With only one buy ...it replaces the buy each time.

It's not a question as such. Just an observation. I like it.

The whole point of Delve is to alter game mechanics by making Silver more accessible (2 coin - doesn't require a buy anymore), so yes, it's a game changer when it is present.

To be honest, most Dominion cards *should* be game changers when they're present, that's the whole point of having different kingdoms

They're definitely interesting ones. Delve can be good, but usually with Empires (and especially with other expansions mixed in), there are good engines available and so you probably don't want too much Silver anyway. Wedding makes gold available much more easily - now you only need $4 to get that Gold, plus a VP, although you'll have 3 debt to deal with. They definitely change the value of those basic treasures, and can make money easier to acquire, but they aren't the strongest of events in general.

Delve indeed does look better than it should've been. However, I'd say this is akin to Trader (Hinterlands), where there, it may seem like a nice deal to trash a 3 cost card to get 3 Silver. While that's good, it's not really great either.


My sentiments too with Wedding.... it's inexpensive access to Gold, that's balanced out by the an initial penalty of 3 Debt. While you can always do without harm when there are penalties for buying or gaining cards, it cuts both ways... you can't use discounts or "gain" effects to buy a Wedding either (on account of it being an event).


Last but not least, like much of many things with Dominion, even if you're spamming these, other players get to do the same too, since this is available to all players
