Dominion: Menagerie

The new expansion, Dominion: Menagerie, has been officially announced. Hey isn't that the name of a card?

Official page: http://riograndegames.com/Game/1350-Dominion-Menagerie

Functionality blurb: "This is the 13th expansion to Dominion. It has 400 cards, with 30 new Kingdom cards. There are Horses that save a draw for later, Exile mats that cards can be sent to and rescued from, and Ways that give Actions another option. Events return."

Edit: Also we currently expect it March 18.

So we have +$ as a token, +Action as a token, and now, +Card as a token (I assume that's how Horses will work). Now we just need +Buy as a token to complete the vanilla set.

That image has the wrong color for the box. I reported that to Jay already.

At my old school a bunch of Dominion noobs wanted to make a set called "Dominion: Zoo." Little did they know that 4 years later...

unless Horse is a kingdom card that goes to the tavern mat and can be called at the beginning of a turn for +draw

edit: i guess it could also be a non-supply card. that'd make sense, with other stuff awarding horses.

The Exile mat sounds interesting.  I'm guessing it's kinda like the Tavern mat from Adventures, except apparently not restricted to a certain type of card.  Presumably there's an Action card that says something like "Choose one: Send a card from your hand to the Exile mat or put a card from the Exile mat into your hand"?  So, sort of like Island except not permanent?  And I *really* want to know what this "Ways" thing is.  Can't wait to see the previews for the set!

Exile mat sounds exciting. My guess is it's a way to get Saboteur-like cards to work. You can "trash" your opponents cards by sending them to the Exile, but the player always has the ability to get them back by doing certain things. Could be very fun. Also maybe make one-shot type cards more interesting? Since you can get them back after "trashing" a.k.a exiling them.

Seems like it would be kind of a weak attack if that's how it works, since it would only temporarily take a card out of your deck

"you’re like an elephant: you remember everything. And you’re afraid of mice" I wonder if this is means there's some kind of interaction between two cards called Elephant and Mouse (or Mice)?  Maybe they're a split pile?

This sounds fantastic. I cannot wait. Early March will now be reserved for not just March Madness, but also for Dominion: Menagerie previews. Thank you so much, Donald and Jay, for continuing to feed our hunger for more Dominion.

+Card as a token (I assume that's how Horses will work).

Don't you think you're putting the card before the horse?

I hope there is a platypus card.

In all seriousness though, I'm so pumped for more Dominion content.  There are already more expansions than I originally anticipated, so each new one is just gravy.  I love it.

The Exile mat sounds like it is used for a softer version of a trashing Attack.

Elephants being afraid of mice is a standard cliche. This is probably just a funny.

I believe the blacksmith who turns into a werewolf is the only time we've ever gotten an actual hint of card mechanics from the flavor text. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

The Dark Ages *flavor text* doesn't even mention rats. It talks a lot about begging, in a way that says nothing about the gameplay of Beggar.

Has there ever been? RGG sells to distributors, not players.
