Don't worry, I will not hold it against you that that is what bothered you, instead of him doing BDSM at 7.

Relax, I'm just going on a 2.5-month long overseas missions trip where they will only allow us to go on the wifi every week.  I'm not bringing my laptop or anything with internet capabilities, so I'm only able to use the community computer, and I decided that I'll probably just go on it to email my parents.  I don't need to be connected to the rest of the world for 2.5 months.

I would read the previews first. They usually have good content (both dxv's and other peoples') and/or good entertainment value. Then you look at all the cards of the set and are a bit less overwhelmed.

Does anybody know a reliable place to pre-order the new expansion?  I tried one for Adventures, but it didn't ship for a week after the release date.

Your local game store. I haven't contacted mine yet, but that's how I intend to get it.

"did Matthias Catrein do any of the art."

I think the more important question is, did Maura Kalusky do any of the art?

Since I'm going to be gone during that time, now the question is: Do I read the previews before looking at the set, or do I just look at the whole set all at once?
I'm trying to think of what you could be doing that would prevent internet access.

Will you be spelunking? Will you be in prison? In a submarine? On a reality show? On a corporate retreat for an internet provider? Is it a bdsm thing? Are you 7?

I'm going to guess: on the ocean (and unwilling to pay ridiculous rates for internet access if it's even available at all).

EDIT: If it were me, I'd read the previews first!

So I was on a cruise last week, and although I didn't pay for it, I thought the cost for internet was quite reasonable. $5 a day for basic access (which I think is limited to social networking sites). But something like $10 per day for full basic internet. I think $100 for the whole week got you the fastest plan.

Does anyone happen to have any idea when this set may be available for purchase via Amazon?

Since Amazon sells stuff from 3rd parties, they tend to be prompt. So, May 18th. If you mean to pre-order, or Amazon specifically, dunno.

Alright. Thanks. I hope it'll be up for pre-order on there soon, but if not, two day shipping exists for a reason.

Last year, I waited for Amazon to put up Adventures. Other people sold it on there and shipped it themselves, but it was a couple of weeks at least before Amazon got it in to ship out themselves.

I already preordered Empires like a week ago. It's probably not worth doing it early though, because shipping costs are through the roof. I'd wait until later on.

http://www.miniaturemarket.com/rgg530.html

Preordered it there. There's a nice half-off sale, but you won't be getting much of a bargain because of like a $5-8 dollar shipping cost, at least where I am. I'm also concerned about the card backs being different again like in Adventures, but whatever.

Also, there's the awesome Donald X. introduction blurb on there too.

I'll just buy it in person the day it comes out.  My FLGS had Adventures the day it came out, I have no reason to think they won't have Empires when it does.

Yeah, and maybe some curse hybrids or something cool like that.

Donald, may I review your Empires cards for you, since I'm kind of pretty much the leader (besides ol' Palpy) of the greatest Galactic Empire known to man?
Dominion: Empires is more of a Roman thing. Plus I already have everyone signed up for doing previews. You could try to find someone to let you take over their preview though. I'd try Augustus first, then maybe Caligula's horse.

Donald has been mind-tricked into revealing some details!  We now know that Dominion: Empires is more of a Roman Empire thing than a Galactic Empire thing!

So who wants to guess what the expansion decal will be?  If this set is going to be Roman-y in theme, I'm thinking either an eagle, or something resembling that SPQR flag.  Or maybe just a laurel wreath.

I would have guessed a generic flag, as something vaguely conquest-y.  But a flag is now the reserved symbol for promos that aren't commemorating something special, e.g. Summon.

An eagle or a laurel would make sense.  We can't be sure how Roman it actually is though. :P

Do we know what sort of release date May 18th is?  Is it the date it's released to shops in the US?  To distributors internationally, but not to shops?  I'm trying to work out what chance there is that I'd be able to buy it in the UK the following week.

It's the date for physical stores in the US.
