Also, does six mats mean one for each player for one use, or six different types of mats?

One per player.

I thought Donald X said he'd never do Event cards!

He said he didn't see a point in doing "events" that happen globally every X turns or whatever. If you read the Adventures description, the Events in this new set are things that you can buy that are not cards.

Token stuff seems kinda reminiscent of Enterprise.

I wonder if coin tokens will be back? Although it might be a bit soon to bother reprinting that many redundant tokens.

There are 30 new Kingdom cards, including the return of Duration cards that do things on future turns, plus Reserve cards that can be saved for the right moment. There are also 20 Event cards that give you something to buy besides cards, including tokens that modify cards.

...I think I just peed a little.

Good, now some cats are out of the bag and I can be less coy.  But still coy.

If anyone was interested in Seaside II, well, hope you're ready for some fun.

And modifying cards?  Man, it's as complex and crazy as it sounds.  This set hurts my brain, in a good way even.

Events are neat; they are gonna change things.

Speculate away!

Unless 25 of the Kingdom cards are Victory cards.

Speculation: the mat will be of higher quality than the bar napkin I used (as my mat) at the meetup.

So there are 20 events. Does this mean 20 of the 30 new kingdom cards are event cards, or is this separate? That is, 20 unique event cards referenced by some other cards. I'm guessing 20 separate unique cards. They give you something to buy besides cards? As in:

Event Card, Action, $2
+ 1 card
+ 1 action
You may spend any number of coins. If you do, add a +1 coin token to a supply pile costing that amount. When anyone plays a card from that pile it gives an additional coin per +1 coin token.

Also, for Dark Ages and Guilds, release ended up being a month after revealing box art and description.  Does this mean we're looking at a February/March release?

Don't get my hopes up. As of before-I-saw-this-thread I was just hoping for early June...

Although on January 2nd I did have a moment where I was like "Wait, it's been 2015 for two days now, where's my Dominion expansion??"

Reserves sound like coin tokens to me, except not coin tokens. (action, card, buy)

I think I know something about the new duration cards...

I don't think it's giving too much away to say: Events are themselves things you buy that are not cards. As in when you buy them, you do not gain them. As in the example in the blurb, you might instead be buying tokens that modify cards.

Wait, but it says there are 20 event cards. Does that just mean that they don't go into your deck, maybe go straight into play as permanents? (or maybe just one immediate effect, i.e., each player trashes a card from their hand of your choice - obviously this isn't balanced, but you get the point)

They are cards because you need a physical support to tell you what they do. But they don't go into your deck. Think spells in prismata or something, is my guess.

Not February. The initial earliest projected date was March. It's printed in the US now (and printed in Europe for European versions), so shipping won't be a random holdup. It may easily fail to make March though. It's on track, but April is a safer guess.
