Exclusive - I can confirm there will be another bonus preview today as always planned, and that it will be later than yesterday's.  :P
A few questions:
1) Who?
2) When?
3) What's your source?

1) not me
2) later than now
3) a clock

Sorry, don't mean to be a jerk. Actual answer is I'm a playtester. I've tried to not really mention that too much, because I was one of the people a bit miffed last time by a few posts from my now-fellow-playtesters that seemed like they were taking joy in knowing more than others. Perhaps I have now become that which I despise, or maybe I just want to reassure people there will still be another new Dominion card(s) revealed today. And at the end of the day, isn't that fantastic?  ;D

You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

5/60 VP symbols.
5/16 red hexagons.
0/10 uses of "Setup".

1/2 ways to trash cards from the Supply.
An Action-Treasure card.
No Event costing $14.
A way to double your money.
No way to bid.

I guess we have only "seen" 14 pieces of art, but we know that three more of them are on the randomizers for the split piles. Does that count?

Hard to say.  It might even count for less, since the art for (e.g.) Gladiator and the art for Fortune are actually just different crops of the same piece of art, which will be the randomizer.

Based on the title of his stream, I think Adam is going to reveal the bonus card on his stream.

The fact that there are 10 uses of "Setup", and we haven't seen any of them yet, makes me think those are the Landmarks (at least most of them).  If so, we'll find out tomorrow.  Also, those may be the way to bid, unless the bidding is on a single Kingdom card.

Bidding in terms of taking debt would make a lot of sense, especially if it is in the "Setup" clause.  That's the point where your decks are the least different, so the bidding would be very fair then - you don't even know yet what your opening split is going to be.

As of the Landmarks preview we've seen:
21/76 pieces of card art.
14/60 VP symbols.
5/16 red hexagons.
1/10 uses of "Setup".
1/2 Duration cards.
1/2 ways to trash cards from the Supply.

No way to bid.

I'm only including things we've actually seen in the previews, not things that we've been told exist.

Don't you think that Gathering cards are the way to bid? Everybody bids and the winner takes it all

Donald made a game where you can make 'bids' about what you can do, called Gauntlet of Fools. There were such claims as "I can win with an arm behind my back and hung over and without breakfast", which of course all do negative things.

I could potentially see a Landmark being a 'way to bid' in a negative sense, like you get 15 VP Tokens if you take all the Curses or 20 Copper, and the price keeps going up and up, but then that leads to quick pile-outs. I just think the way to bid is an overpaying event that gives you a bonus (or VP Tokens every turn guaranteed) until someone else overpays.

Maybe you just bid how many tricks you're going to take.  Finally that Ace of Spades card can be used!

Man, if Landmarks were Previews Day 4, what madness has Donald saved for today?

I'm not sure why people are expecting Donald to save the best for last with these previews. That hasn't really been the case in the past. For example, the last Dark Ages preview day was just the three Shelters.

Anyway, today's preview will be new Events. It is known!

I don't know, replacing the starting Estates was pretty exciting back then.

As of the Events preview we've seen:
24/76 pieces of card art.
16/60 VP symbols.
6/16 red hexagons.
1/10 uses of "Setup".
1/2 Duration cards.
1/2 ways to trash cards from the Supply.
An Action-Treasure card.
An Event costing $14.
A way to double your money.
No way to bid.

We've seen at least one of each thing that was teased except the way to bid. I hope that will be our bonus preview for today.

And as of the final preview (Castles) we've seen:
32/76 pieces of card art.
26/60 VP symbols.
6/16 red hexagons.
1/10 uses of "Setup".
1/2 Duration cards.
1/2 ways to trash cards from the Supply.
An Action-Treasure card.
An Event costing $14.
A way to double your money.
No way to bid.

Still no way to bid. Gotta leave us speculating about something. If someone wants to check these numbers that'd be cool; I may have missed something in there.

And with Castles taking up a bunch of art, the likely breakdown is now:

24 Kingdom (5 Split, 1 Castles)
21 Landmarks
13 Events
