This is the second game I played yesterday with my roommates after we played one of the suggested sets from intrigue and everyone(including two beginners) loved the dynamics with the curse cards.

It went on much longer than the first game, and the pile of curse cards was emptied about 3/4ths of the way through the game. I wanted to share the setup and hear what you have to say.

Secret Chamber:
Masquerade
Quarry
City
Torturer
Mountebank
Goons
Bank
Kings Court
Peddler

We also kept the platinum and colony cards.

This set contains a combo that exploits the only acknowledged "bug" in the dominion rules.

This is a bit of an aside but...

I abhor the Kings court, Goons, Masquerade combo. I believe it is broken and lame.

2 things could have led to it not existing: If a person cannot give up a card then they should be left out of the rotation for receiving a card with Masquerade and tokens that can be received from Goons (and cards like it) should be limited.

Also, Goons should be two cards: One that rewards victory tokens for each purchase that turn and provides a +1 Buy for that purpose and one that provides 2 coins and forces a discard by opponents. The first card would be fairly priced at 6 coins and the second at 4 coins and perhaps called Militia.

Also, good point!

How about ambassador? It has a similar feel.

I'm a fan of Steward. It works well with all the actions granted from Cities and when played thrice by King's Courts.
