Comic requested by Pyan.

You can put tokens on tokens now.  There are also Morning, Brunch, Naptime, and Brunch Night phases now.  It's easy, though - Morning, Brunch, Action, Naptime, Buy, Night, Cleanup - it's just MBANBNC.  New players have no trouble picking it up in playtests, so we're pretty happy with it.

Translation errors in Dutch translations have been slowly increasing with each expansion, with the newest couple of expansions being 100% mistranslated. The Dutch rules of Dominion: Brunchtime are a widely esteemed science-fiction novel that has put DXV and the Dutch translators in a long-running judicial dispute over who has intellectual property over said novel.

Due to all English words being used as card names in Dominion, DXV has invented a large repository of new words, such as 'Chancellscout'.

Each copy of a Dominion base set  now contains implantable mantis shrimp eyes so people can identify the colours of some of the many new types from eachother.

This reminds me that I never got around to making Brunch and Naptime RBCIs...

And then Renaissance comes along and reverses this trend, apparently...

I'm not even trying to grammar right now.  Just trying to bring it back on topic sort of.

So, Coin of the Realm vs Villagers. They both save actions for later. I'm not really sure what my question is...

Could you just explain your design thoughts on this? If you were making CotR today, would it just be a Villagers card, or is it different enough to warrant being a Treasure-Reserve?

OMG, so many feels.  Those loopy theater kids keep getting drawn by Smithy variants.  Give me my CotR back, Donnie.  Gawd.

(EDIT:  Conclave is one of those differently-named-from-those-in-play interaction cards.  But Cornucopia is sort of low-middling popularity overall, and Conclave is from the new, trendy Nocturne.  The pose in Conclave makes the card a good fit for Escape From X references...)

Beautiful. It reminds me of this old one...



Scout was a card once, for those of you who were born too late to know.
Sorry for this re-post... It's been over half a decade.

The black-and-white picture is "Combos with Scout".

Combos, the baked pretzel snack.
Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird.

It is well-known that nothing in Dominion successfully combos with the deleted card Scout.  So it's a bit of a meme to go looking for such combos.

Now immortalized in image form, with explanation.

I kind of want to like this I guess, but I have no idea what is going on.  It's like I just went to college anime night or something.

Homage and RBCI are like Game of Thrones, and Dominion Discord is more like Stranger Things.

Or more realistically you'll just be out of the loop on slightly different things.
