Without a clear rule against doing this, I used a Remodel card on a Gold to get a Province to win the game. The questionable part is a gold card worth 6 or 3? Since all of the other Action cards are worth what you paid for them, I took that same consideration that I had to pay 6 to get a gold card, and so its worth is 6. Did I win?

Thanks,
Tc

Yes!

Not only that, you live in a province which is basically made of gold. You don't just have a gold toilet; your toilet paper is gold leaf. Not so absorbent, but that's what servants are for.

It is obviously a good thing to do when there are one or two provinces left, ...but is it always a good move?

No one thing is always a good move, but Remodeling Gold into Province is generally a strong play, yes. Without that capability, Remodel would be far weaker.

E.g., don't do it to your one gold card but if you have enough do it.

Welcome to BGG Thomas!

Depending on where you live, you might have a lot of Dominion fans nearby. For example, both LastFootnote and I are both in Saint Paul.

On when to do it, my thought is, is this gold likely to get me more than one province before the game ends? Then don't do it. Otherwise, do it.

It's even right there in the third sentence.
...
It can be used on cheap cards, such as Remodeling Estates into Silvers or cheap engine pieces, or on expensive cards, such as Remodeling Golds into Provinces.

Thanks for the info. I've heard that there are groups around the cities that play all kinds of board games. One was mentioned around Roseville. Not ready for that sort of commitment yet. Thanks again, and have a great New Year!!!

You're turning something what otherwise generates $3 into an $8 item that's worth 6 VP. Good stuff indeed! And you do it towards the end since your engine will take a hit.

Just a helpful note on terminology, Remodel talks about the "Cost" of a card, it doesn't mention anything about "Worth". Gold costs $6, so that's what Remodel cares about. You can think of a Gold as "Worth" 3 when you play it, but that really just is a way of saying "It produces 3 money when played."
