Why can't tournaments be on Tuesday afternoons, near Cleveland, so I don't need to use vacation time to attend? :(
Because then you would crush us all.

I'm only about an hour from Cleveland.  If you want to meet up after work sometime, I'm game :)

On topic: Woo more Dominion! *looks at box* but I just fit Adventures in you!

Depending on how much stuff there is, I should be able to fit it in my new binders with the extra pocket pages left.

My 5000 card box is getting pretty full, with all the mats and tokens and such in there. I haven't even bought "Base Cards" or "Summon" yet.

I'm excited, but sad at the same time. Haven Having not had a chance to play Adventures online, I feel like when this comes out it's going to feel like overload, especially considering Adventures adds so many cards, and I have barely played with it and some of us have not played with it at all. One thing is for sure, Dominion will feel very different soon.

PS: Donald X. I have assembled a fairly large irl play group in Southern California, in case you are looking for another play tester in the future who plays with people in real life. Hint! Hint!

PPS: Let's start taking bets when this gets released online. Who thinks this will be out irl before Adventures is out online?

PPPS: I'm excited to see VP tokens return. I really hope coin tokens make a comeback as well. That is one mechanic that I feel has a lot of room to play around with.

It's seriously just a who you know when factor. I didn't get selected or anything (why would Donald trust someone with new cards who doesn't even have the old ones?), I was just in the right place at the right time. I still haven't seen all the cards either.

Also, I would bet real money that Empires will be at your FLGS before Adventures is online.

I wouldn't bet real money that the next expansion after Empires will be at your FLGS before Adventures is online, but I think there's a >1% of it being true.

Wero, what do you think the Alchemy sequel will be called? Is it going to be a large set?

Well, that is a lot easier if those meetups happen on the continent you live on.

An excellent point.  I'd suggest moving here, but I wouldn't recommend anyone from pretty much anywhere in Europe come to the US.  Maybe to Canada?

For the German translation. Please make sure they use the female grammatical form when there are "female" people in the art.
So far they've only done it with witches and very few other cards like duchess. But they used "Bäcker" instead of "Bäckerin" for baker, "Wildhüter" instead of "Wildhüterin"  for ranger, "Geschichtenerzähler" instead of "Geschichtenerzählerin" for storyteller etc.
I really appreciate that Donald made sure there are more women in the art. But the (wrong) translation spoils it.

For me personally, this is just beyond the scope. Feel free to contact the German publisher and complain yourself... or the Hungarian publisher or Polish publisher or whoever.

I'm so glad this finally is announced, so that I can tell everyone that you all should get this expansion!  I've been fortunate enough to get to play with some of the cards, and I think this might be the best Dominion expansion yet.

The Polish publisher did Base and Intrigue, then skipped to Cornucopia and hasn't done anything since.  I'm pretty sure Hungarian has only done Base and Intrigue.

EDIT: I seem to remember there being a new Polish publisher, though.

In Russia they had Base and Intrigue translated, but recently they stopped printing Intrigue..
Not that I care too much about translated versions, but that just means less people are playing the game, which is obviously bad.
