Poor House, a virtual coin card.

Virtual coin, also called virtual money, refers to an Action card which provides buying power.

Non-terminal virtual-coin Actions are often classified as either cantrip money or disappearing money based on whether they provide +Cards or not. Terminal virtual-coin Actions almost never provide +Cards.

  • Poor HousePoor House.jpg - Poor House provides good buying power in decks without treasure, and Poor House itself is a form of virtual coin.
  • TacticianTactician.jpg - Tactician benefits from virtual coin played on the turn where Tactician is played; this strategy requires +Actions. First play the cards providing virtual coin, and play Tactician as the last action, discarding the hand, before making a purchase. The Double Tactician strategy usually relies heavily on this.
  • Counter to Pirate ShipPirate Ship.jpg - Virtual coin decks counter pirate ship effectively, as there are fewer or no targets for Pirate Ship.
