Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not remain estranged from him. 2 Sam 14:14

Courthouse

Value: 6 VP
Cost: Stone + Wood
Function: Pay 5 deniers to build one castle segment
(this counts for Phase 6 scoring)

Rationale: Another method to allow money engines to compete with cube hoarders. This one is more direct and probably more useful than the Windmill. The money to VP conversion is not that great, but is worth it if you can secure the favor.

Stone Building - Black Market

Tile Name: Black Market
Tile Type: Stone Building
Cost: 1 Stone + Any 1 cube
PP: 0
Effect
Activator: Pay 1 PP for any 2 cubes (except gold) and 2 Denier
Owner: Pay 1 Denier to buy any 1 cube -or- Gain 1 Denier


Notes on the design of this tile
* Base on end game bonus calculation, 1 PP = 4 Denier = Any 3 Cube

* With reference to standard stone production building, 1 PP = 3 cubes - 1 cube for owner, ie, 1 PP = 2 Cubes.

* When Black Market is activated by an opponent, the owner gains 2 PP advantage, so, the output for the activator should not be too few. 2PP = 2 Denier + Any 2 cubes.

When built
Original Production Building: 3pp
Black Market: 0pp
Design note: The flexibility offered by Black Market is _balanced_ with 0pp gained.

When activated by opponent, you get
Original Production Building: 1pp + 1 cube
Black Market: 2pp + (1 denier -or- any 1 cube at 1 denier)
Advantage: pp & flexibility (cube / cash)

When activated by yourself
Original Production Building: 3 cubes
Black Market: -1pp, 2 denier and any 2 cubes.
Advantage: got cash and flexibility.

After some playtesting, Black Market is not a good choice after mid game. (You got no pp when building it, and chance for activation is lowered) If it is built in early game, the potential PP gain (from activation cost paid by opponent would be more rewarding)

You could always use the site's polling features, although that adds a bit more work.

Yeah, do a poll, much better.

You could do a pruning with thumbs, Do a nomination process where you ask people to thumb their favourites, then the top 10 move to a legit poll. That way you won't have 80 items in a single poll.
