Card Bugs / Alchemist + Way
08 September 2023, 03:09:05 AM
When I play Alchemist using a Way, it gives me the option to topdeck that Alchemist, so long as I have a potion in play.

My understanding is that this should no longer be the case, now that Alchemist has lost its dividing line.
When I saw a sceptre in my opponent's discard pile, it appeared to have some debt in its cost.

I guess it technically has some amount of debt in its cost, it's just that the amount is zero, so that hexagon's a bit confusing.
In a recent game, I tried to exchange an Overlord-as-Peasant for a Soldier and it didn't work. I toyed around, and the same problem exists for Band of Misfits and Page.

According to my read of the cards, this exchange should be possible. It also says so in the wiki:

Of course, it's only relevant in edge cases, and the no-exchange is probably better than the accidental "I couldn't tell which one was the real Peasant" exchange, but it still cost me some endgame Triumphal Arch points tonight, and I'm mad.

No, I'm not actually mad.

Card Bugs / Hamlet Discard
23 January 2019, 08:55:35 PM
So, I recently played a game with Hamlet. I was doing a bunch of draw-to-X stuff, so all of my payload was disappearing and my hand size was often small. By the time I played my last Hamlet, I had just one card in hand. I discarded the last card in my hand to receive +action just because I felt like it, and then I was surprised to be presented with the option to "discard" for +buy. I tried, and it worked. I discarded nothing and still received a +buy.

Now I realize that this will practically never matter. I guess I could find an edge case where I Innovate something with +cards and draw up a Diadem and the combination of one extra coin and one extra buy allows me to buy something that I wouldn't otherwise, and maybe that wins me the game . . . but that's a stretch.

Still, it's not how the card should work, so I thought I'd report it.
Interface Issues / Gaining Inn from the Trash
12 October 2018, 04:00:01 AM
I just had a game where I played Lurker to gain an Inn from the trash. When I wanted to select actions to shuffle into my deck, it would only allow me to select only one copy of each different action. It would not allow me to choose two or more from any stack of actions.

This was not a problem when I bought an Inn, only when I gained it from the trash via Lurker.

So I played around and it seems like this issue is specific to gaining the Inn from the trash. If I gain INN with a workshop variant, it seems to work fine, but I tried Graverobber, and it was busted too.

Confusingly, everything works fine for an Inn gained with Rogue if gaining Inn is the only available option. If there are two options to gain in the trash and you choose Inn, then you get the broken interface. I guess somehow having a choice is what's triggering the bug.

If you like, go to game #19224624 - Decision 146, from my perspective. You can discard the Secret Passage and the Copper and then play the Graverobber to see how it freezes up. Alternatively, play the Rogue to see how it doesn't freeze because there is no choice involved.

Apologies if this is a known issue. I couldn't see it in the forums anywhere.
Game Log Issues / Points Confusion with Tower
25 March 2018, 04:56:07 PM
Very minor thing, really.

I played a game against Rattington (12915168) and played to see how many Tower points I could get on this board. I mean, it's Rattington, why not mess around?  I ended up getting 37 cards from empty piles by the end of the game. But when the end-game screen loaded, it said that I only got 28 points. The good news is that my actual score reflected the 37 points, so it didn't change the outcome of the game, it only made for some confusion on my part.

I suspect that the problem might have had something to do with the fact that at one point I emptied the Page pile, but then exchanged later exchanged the Page to stop the game from ending. At the end of the game, I bought the same Page once again. Maybe that messed up the count?

Interface Issues / Prince of Warriors
22 April 2017, 07:33:13 PM
Okay, this is a pretty specific circumstance, but I thought I'd report anyway.

I just played a game where I set aside a Warrior with Prince.  A couple of turns later, after Prince played Warrior for me, I played a few Pawns and then another Warrior from my hand.

At the end of the turn, I wanted to exchange the Warrior from my hand, but not the Warrior on the Prince. There was no clear way for me to tell which Warrior was which in the little Exchange/Keep menu. I sort of assumed that the top one was the one from my Prince, but the rest of the Travellers didn't appear in order, so I didn't feel confident in that.
Card Texts problems / [Fixed] Dame Natalie
07 January 2017, 04:40:17 PM
Dame Natalie's online card says "Gain a card costing up to 3"

I believe it should say "You may gain a card costing up to 3"

Incidentally, you still get the "don't gain" option, even though the online text suggests that the gain is mandatory.
Card Bugs / Permission and Possession
04 January 2017, 03:44:03 PM
This problem occurred in a game against a bot. I'm not sure how it would play out with a flesh-and-blood opponent.

In this game, I Possessed my opponent and accidentally played the wrong card. When I pressed "undo" to fix it, I was asked for my own permission to allow the undo to proceed. This seems like one choice that my opponent should still be able to make in spite of being possessed.
Card Bugs / Wishing in the Black Market
04 January 2017, 06:35:08 AM
Recently, I played a game with Mystic and Black Market in the kingdom.

Once I'd purchased a card through the Black Market, there seemed to be no way to guess it using Mystic, even when I knew exactly what the top card was.
