- A way to double your money.

I wonder how long it will take the community to figure out how to do that. I doubt their will be a card which just says "double your coins".

Sounds amazing! Does anyone know exactly when it comes out?

Also, $14 is a lot for an event. I bet it has a way to lower its cost, like Peddler. Or maybe it does just say "double your coins".

- An Action-Treasure card.

Cool.  It seems we are going to think differently about money in this expansion.

- 60 VP symbols.
- An Action-Treasure card.

These are the ones that surprised me.

60 is a lot, even assuming it counts each single card rather than different cards. 4 Action cards, 1 alt-vp, 8 uniques?
I expected we'd never see white and yellow together on a Dominion card.

I expect lots of VP symbols on landmarks.

I'm a bit worried about the bidding thing, I ususally don't like bidding.

I don't like bidding either, and I wouldn't worry if I were you.

There is 296300 cards, and 76 Artworks. With what combinations does that leave us, assuming Landmarks and Events are 1 card each and we only get Kingdom cards that have either 12 or 10 cards? (Plus randomizers)

I'm guessing the action-treasure involves a choice, like it's either $2 used as a treasure or $3 used as an action.

By my calculations, 25-26 kingdom cards and about 10 Landmarks.

Me too, but it depends on what kind of bidding.  Bidding money for something against other players, like an auction, sounds bad.  Bidding that you can accomplish some feat, like in spades, is maybe not so bad.

Dominion: Empires has:

- 76 pieces of card art.

30 Landmarks/Events, leaves 46 peices of art. So roughly 10 piles with two different cards? Adventures had the best art so this is very welcome assuming the quality stays the same.

- 60 VP symbols.

Only 16 cards don't have VP symbols ;D. I'm assuming bishop would be counted as 2, so it's more likely only about 30 of the cards have VP symbols.

- 16 red hexagons.

New token? Probably either curse token or debt token.

- 10 uses of "Setup."

Yessssssssssssss.  :) :) :). Setup clauses are the best. I love BM and baker sooooo much. I predict at least one will add an event, simmilar to my seige.

- 2 Duration cards.

Yes! I was scared adventures would be the last of them. Probably they refer to new tokens, or they would have been in adventures.

- 2 ways to trash cards from the Supply.

It thought this died in seaside. I'm glad Donald is ressurecting old ideas. Prediction: Now and at the start of your next turn, each other player trashes the top card of their deck. (JK, PLZ NO). Take that all the people saying that outtakes can't work.

- An Action-Treasure card.

Never thoguht I'd see the day. This should open up a whole realm of fan card possibilities.

- An Event costing $14.

Dang. Speechless. Hope it has a cost reduction.

- A way to double your money.

This will make a lot of puzzles easier.

- A way to bid.

Seems good. Wonder if you bid with VP, or money?

If you have a fan card you want to be created, just post about it here! I'd love to take a look at it.

Between finally playing Adventures for the first time (since it came out online), just hearing about the Stef/SCSN project last week, and just now learning about Empires at this very instant, I'm more excited about the future of Dominion than I have been in years!

Dominion: Empires has:

- 10 uses of "Setup."

Bet it combos with Scout. "During setup, add Scout to the supply," probably.

Ridiculous Empires Card

Event $14

Gain 2 Duration cards. Gain a red hexagon. Gain one of the VP chips, your choice. Add Scout to the Supply. Each other player trashes a Province from their hand, or reveals a hand with no Provinces. Gain a Scout. Trash all cards in the supply costing less than $3. Pick the new Supply piles. Wait for the release date of Empires. Cards cost 1 more this turn. You may gain a Potion. Gain all of the red hexagons. Swap your deck with someone else's. Gain a Prize card. Trash the top card of your deck. You may immediately buy this card again.

The large amount of VP chips also helps scout, as it may pick one up for you thinking it's a victory card.

Also, Scout has 5 letters in its name. It costs $4, and looks at the top 4 cards of your deck. 5+(4/4)=6, so scout obviously has something to do with the hexagons (6 sides)
