Judging by the themes, do you think that a Dark Ages/ Prosperity game would just implode on itself?

just imagine having platinums and ruins? Grand market/ abandoned market? hmmm...

Prosperity leads one out of the Dark Ages, so having both in a setup sounds good to me.

By implode you mean "Be Awesome"?

Ruins will definitely make the start of the game different. I'll be interested in seeing how it affects the overall game. Definitely looks to be a good addition. I don't really see it in conflict with Prosperity. Platinums change most of the games they are in, but unless the cards act together they are all just interesting elements.

Thematically interesting.

There will be plenty of synergy. The grand market that you mentioned is a great example, with extra trashing and cards like the poor house, getting to 6 without coppers wont necessarily be more difficult with dark ages.

Thematically one could think of a dark ages/ prosperity game as struggling to emerge from the Dark Ages. I'm excited for it.

If there's Dark Age/Renaissance, or Dark Age/Internet Age, then perhaps I'd be more concerned

There are some serious interactions between Dark Ages cards and Prosperity cards - think of the benefits you could have when your opponent plays a Bishop - you could end up drawing several more cards, just from what we have seen so far. There have also been several outlines of strategies proposed based around watchtower. Goons will, of course, fit right in. I think that we will find Prosperity and the Dark Ages like each other very well. Well, at least those that are prosperous will enjoy the Dark Ages. Serfs don't seem likely to enjoy much of anything.

That or Prosperity causes an economic collapse due to over-inflation, which leads to the Dark Ages.

I would love to have a hand with 1 Forge and a stack of "on-trash benefit" cards.
