FAQ

Official FAQ

  • The Gold and Curses come from the Supply and go into discard piles. If there is no Gold left, you do not gain one. If there are not enough Curses left to go around, deal them out in turn order, starting with the player to your left.
  • Each player who gained a Curse draws a card. This is not optional.
  • A player who did not gain a Curse, whether due to the Curses running out or due to some other reason, does not draw a card.
  • A player who uses WatchtowerWatchtower.jpg (from Dominion: Prosperity) to trash the Curse did gain a Curse and so draws a card; a player who uses TraderTrader.jpg (from Dominion: Hinterlands) to gain a Silver instead did not gain a Curse and so does not draw a card.

Wahrsager
The card was originally translated as Wahrsager (fortune teller), but after complaints about this being explicitly masculine even though the card art depicts a woman, it was changed to Wahrsagerin.
However, the German publishers had forgotten that this name was already in use for Fortune TellerFortune Teller.jpg, and it was changed again.

Trivia

Official card art.

It is notable in being the only Curser card that does not reflect the theme of its expansion.

Secret History

I had tried "gain a GoldGold.jpg, they gain a CurseCurse.jpg" in Alchemy, but it was a poor fit for a card with potion in the cost. I tried it out again here with the Council RoomCouncil Room.jpg penalty. It worked fine, but some people complained about how bad the card got when the CursesCurse.jpg ran out. Wei-Hwa suggested having it not give them a card unless they got a CurseCurse.jpg, and there you have it.

Retrospective

I'd drop the "who did" on Soothsayer. "Gain a Gold. Each other player gains a Curse and draws a card." The "who did" is there because there were complaints about the card going dead eventually. The apparently tiny amount of simplicity to be gained is worth way more to me than getting rid of the feeling that eventually you will want to stop playing Soothsayer.
