+2 Cards
Gain an Estate. Each other player gains a Curse and discards down to 3 cards in hand.
(This is not in the Supply.)

Followers is an Action-Attack-Prize from Cornucopia. It is not in the Supply, and can only be gained through playing the TournamentTournament.jpg card. It is often the first Prize to be taken, since it distributes CursesCurse.jpg and is a discard attack. Since it also puts an EstateEstate.jpg in your deck, this is a swing of 2 VP.

[edit] Official FAQ

  • Do the things in the order listed. You draw 2 cards; then you gain an Estate from the Supply, putting it into your discard pile; then each other player gains a Curse from the Supply, putting it into his discard pile; then each other player discards down to 3 cards in hand.
  • A player with 3 or fewer cards in hand does not discard any cards.
  • If there are no Estates left, you do not gain one.
  • If there are not enough Curses left, deal out the remaining Curses in turn order.
  • This is a Prize; see the Additional Rules.

[edit] Strategy Article

There's no strategy article for Followers.

It's a pretty great Prize, though. It gives a swing of 2 VP by giving out a CurseCurse.jpg and giving you an EstateEstate.jpg, forces the opponent to discard, and gives you +2 Cards so you get some benefit too. It's usually the first Prize to go, unless there is another curser on the board or the trashing is extremely powerful.

Note that it gives both you and the opponent exactly one dead card: it will junk your deck as much as your opponents, meaning it can be difficult to keep your own engine running if you begin to use Followers vigorously. However, this does generate a swing of 2 VP, which is pretty powerful.

[edit] Secret History

And in place of Followers I had a VP-Action card. It didn't work out because, you know, you buy VP cards later in the game, for the points they're worth. I just couldn't make a VP prize exciting enough without making it too good. It couldn't be something you built your deck around, because you might not get it and at most got one. Something like Harem or Nobles just wasn't going to look pretty next to the other Prizes, because part of what you "paid for" was the 2 VP. Anyway Followers, who doesn't like Followers.



Followers meanwhile started out as a GoonsGoons.jpg in Prosperity. I tried a bunch of "choose one" cards in that slot, and then tried this attack-two-ways, profit-the-opposite-ways thing. It was the same except it cost Coin6.png and gave you a VP token instead of an Estate. It was too strong. An Estate is obv. a lot worse than a VP token, and being a Prize means it doesn't get to hit you that often or early either.
