This pile starts the game with 4 copies each of Battle Plan, Archer, Warlord, and Territory, in that order. Only the top card can be gained or bought.

Clash is a type of Kingdom card from the Allies expansion. There are 4 copies each of 4 differently-named Clashes with a single randomizer card, forming a split pile: when Clashes are selected as a Kingdom card for a game, they are put into a single Supply pile in order by increasing cost, of which only the top card can be gained at any given time. The cheapest of the four allows you to "rotate" the pile—move all copies of the current top card to the bottom of the pile, revealing the next card in the sequence.

[edit] Card names

Top down was a significant thing for the split piles, though I didn't have to have those exact names. For example names considered for the Clashes pile included: Campaign, Skirmisher, General, Emissary, Espionage, Army, Treaty. I had these little stories or progressions and then a big list of card ideas I wanted to fit in and paired them up. And then made up more cards for the names, and worked on the cards.

[edit] Art Descriptions

Here's the Clashes pile notes.

Dominion is set in medieval times, mostly in Europe. These cards all use the usual Dominion card dimensions (not the landscape ones).

Clash pile: These four cards show aspects of a military invasion:

Battle PlanBattle Plan.jpg: A chart on a table for planning a battle. People can be in the image.

ArcherArcher.jpg: A woman who uses a bow for combat.

WarlordWarlord.jpg: A man in a position of authority in a battle, while fighting in it.

TerritoryTerritory.jpg: Land conquered in the invasion. Peaceful but with signs of the battle.

[edit] Secret History

For strumphf's 2022 advent calendar, Donald X. went in-depth on the development of Clashes.

Battle PlanBattle Plan.jpg and TerritoryTerritory.jpg started out like they ended, though I tried Territory counting Attack cards too (it's just not as interesting). ArcherArcher.jpg and WarlordWarlord.jpg swapped places some (with their resources changing), and Warlord tried different ways of punishing repetition. For a while it made you trash cards you gained that were copies of cards you had in play, but this is problematic and also didn't do much. And originally it gave +$3 next turn.
