Something that would have been purple if there was light to see it by scuttled across the floor.

****
Tax Collector
(12 cards)
Cost : 4
Victory

1 VP per 7 coins worth of treasure in your deck at end of game.
****

I figure my most coin heavy decks can have 30 by end of game. It might need to go up to 10 instead of 7. I suppose if I knew this card was in the game... I could JUST do silver and Tax collectors for a good amount of VP. I wanted more than 2 gold required for a VP. Also... more than 3 silver.

Didn't see anyone else do this. It seems really obvious. Sorry if it was done before.

So those folks who usually buy nothing but gold will now buy at least a couple of these.

I think someone's suggested something like that.

The problem is that if you have all those Treasures you can just buy Provinces and Duchies -- stuffing your deck with money is something you'd like to do anyway, it doesn't need to be incentivized further. Compare to the Gardens which rewards you for doing something you generally wouldn't want to do otherwise.

THAT is a very good point. You could make it more expensive. Make it 8.

What if it was 1 VP for every X Treasure cards (rather than coin) in your deck?
