Dominion: Empires Announced!

A bit more to chew on: It has 300 cards and 96 metal tokens. There are cards you can buy now and pay for later, piles with two different cards, and Landmarks which add new ways to score. VP tokens and Events return from previous sets.

At this rate, we're going to have new expansions faster than MF can implement old ones.

Nice! Is it very irrational to hope for a release in 2016?

Jay posted the blurb about the set's mechanics on BGG. I added it to the OP.

96 tokens is a lot. Prosperity only had 31 vp tokens and 8 coin tokens. So thats probably at least 2 new kinds of tokens.

Yes indeed! A whole new Dominion expansion that you know nothing about! I am envious of the excitement you must feel already.

Now we just need to get another get-together going in the DC area so I can play with the cards before everyone else again.  :D

Point of fact, Adventures was never advertised as the "final expansion".

I'm not quite sure how you mean that, but the target as usual is April, though we will better know as we get closer as to whether or not we'll make it.

Neither was Guilds! Over and over I said that that was the last one planned, but that there would probably be another one someday.

Man, I've barely even gotten to play Adventures yet. Heck I still don't feel that comfortable with Guilds. So much new stuff to do. I need to play more Dominion I guess.
Logged
...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.
I hereby declare myself the best dominion player in the world. Obviously.

piles with two different cards

I actually had a similar idea back when we were doing the fan card contests.  I can't remember if I actually submitted a version of it.  Here's why I have in my card ideas document...

Quote
Secret Society
$3 - Action-Victory
+2 Actions. Worth 1VP.

When you trash this, you may trash any number of cards from your hand.

Setup: Add Secret Plans as an extra Kingdom card pile. Both this and Secret Plans must be empty to count as one empty pile.

Secret Plans/Plot
$3 - Treasure-Victory
Worth $1. Worth 1VP.

When you trash this, you may trash any number of cards from your hand.

Clarification: there are only 5 each of Secret Society and Secret Plans.  They are separate piles so you can buy either one.

I didn't have them mixed together in one pile though.  I think the design considerations for that would be very different.  It'll be interesting to see how it compares to Knights.  With Knights, they all share one major effect (The trashing attack) and then vary extra bonuses.  But with just two different cards in a pile, you can design a bigger difference but with closer interaction.  I wonder if these piles will be shuffled or if they'll be specifically ordered (5/5, or interleaved).

I never thought I'd see the announcement of a new Dominion expansion. Thanks mr. Vaccarino, I am feeling all giddy inside now.

The announced features sound very exciting and I am looking forward to what new things you've come up with. I am also excited to see what Landmarks are going to be. My guess is that it's going to be some kind of tracking card you gain and you can build it by fulfilling certain tasks and you gain VP by fulfilling single goals on that card.

Not sure if the release of this or adventures going online is more exciting.

Of course this is announced during the Cincy tournament! Quite excited, for a bonus reason! EDIT: looks like Donald already said it, I got to playtest this one  :) Huzzah, more Dominion.

Why can't tournaments be on Tuesday afternoons, near Cleveland, so I don't need to use vacation time to attend? :(
