A card that decreases the amount of armies in any territory on the map by 75% (works well against stacks).

Good idea?

The nuke card was rejected, so this will also probably be declined as well.

and in what scenario would this card become... "Fun"?

It won't work in FFAs. It'd only take a couple of people to team up and their missile cards can take down a players long-term stacks with ease.

Seems pointless in team-games.

Nope. Don't get it.

It'd have to be some ultra-rare card IF it was viable but even then, what'd be the point?

How can you target a stack if they're hidden in fog?

So it's like the bomb card (same effect as 2 bomb cards) if I'm right (I am not a member and so can't use it to make games myself and also haven't been in a game with it)

A plague card would be devastating. Attach to a territory for 7 turns and every turn halve the actual armies :)

A missile card would be terrible in FFAs, but would be great in maybe a Cole War Diplomacy Game. You could everyone lets say 20 and rely on MAD to keep them from being used.

Yeah Ryan, 'cause I'm pretty sure this has never been suggested before.

No.

The bomb card is already pretty powerful as-is, imagine that with infinite range and double effectiveness...

or if it could work you could target an area within like 3 territories of where you are and it would be a big circle and hit one of the territories in that circle

These cards add almost nothing to strategic gameplay.

we have already the Bomb card which makes the missile card unnecessary

The bomb card and this card make it actually sound like this should be called "WarZone".

How about a bonus degradation card? If you know a opponent is likely to capture a bonus you could degrade it's value for a customized amount of turns and by a customized number. Isn't necessarily the most awe inspiring card but it'd be nice.

Here's another inspiring yet frivolous suggestion: random disasters.

During gameplay, at an arbitrary point during the attack/transfer stage of an arbitrary turn, possibly a region (a group of territories, not necessarily belonging to the same player or the same bonus) might be exposed to a disaster, meaning that the number of armies in each territory in this region is reduced.

The reductions are due to a single external event intervening into the game, so to say: not controlled, planned or foreseeable by any player. It might affect each territory differently: in some territories, e.g., 20% of the armies die, while in some others all of them might die (the result being 0 neutrals).

All of this is randomized: the size of the region (it could affect the whole map), the location of the region on the map, the timing of the disaster, its strength - whatever you can think of.

And principally, the disaster is neutral to the players: there's no concern regarding the strengths of them, their relations to each other, their gameplay history, their number, etc. If a player happens to be in that region affected by the disaster, then that player is affected by the disaster - as simple as that.

Imagine how exciting a game would be if this was implemented. (Can you?)

Have a nice weekend.

Members only. If you can supply an opponent, though, and tell me what sort of settings you want, I can create the game for you so you can try it out.

Here's a few of the games (9x3 Limited Full Dist, Medium Earth, No-Split Mode, Bomb Card only) if you want to check them out (once they finish):
