Do you give any thought to the alphabetic distribution of cards in sets?  For example, Empires has 7 piles beginning with C, and 2/3 of its cards in the first half of the alphabet.  Cornucopia has most of the set beginning with F and H.
I do not give that any thought at all.

You expect us to believe that it's just a coincidence that no cards start with the letter X? Admit it, you're ex-ist.

Yes.  That's why he's called Donald Middle-Name-Omitted Vaccarino.

The best reason to lynch Haddock is the meltdown we get to witness on the wagon runup. I mean, we should totally wagon him every day just for the lulz.

M Town Wins-Losses (6-2, 75%): 71, 72, 76, 81, 83, 87 - 79, 82.  M Scum Wins-Losses (2-1, 67%): 80, 101 - 70.
RMM Town Wins-Losses (3-1, 75%): 42, 47, 49 - 31.  RMM Scum Wins-Losses (3-3, 50%): 33, 37, 43 - 29, 32, 35.
Modded: M75, M84, RMM38.     Mislynched (M-RMM): None - 42.     Correctly lynched (M-RMM): 101 - 33, 33, 35.       MVPs: RMM37, M87

So I taught this to someone recently who really loved it (and she's not a gamer). She wanted to know if there was a Dragon card or something similar. I said that you tend to keep it within reality and not fantasy, but she pointed out Witch. And then there's also Scrying Pool, Transmute, Transmogrify... a few things that are more fantasy than reality. So my question is, would Dragon be the type of thing that could exist on a card, or does that seem outside of the theme for you?

Donald did Giant. I don't see why Dragon wouldn't be unreasonable.

Dragon
Action Attack
Cost: $7
+$2 or gain a Gold.
You may reveal a Gold from your hand. If you do, each other player with 5 or more cards in hand reveals them and discards a card that you choose.

Clearly Dragon should be a $7 because Dragons like Hoards and Hoard is in Prosperity.  ;)

That's why Seprix totally intentionally said that he felt Dragons were unreasonable.

It would need to be in a set that leaned in that direction theme-wise, like Alchemy and Adventures do. For most sets the idea is just to have a hint of fantasy. Adventures would have been a good place, but I still felt like, how far do I want to go here.

Did you consider a card shaped thingy that was both an event and a landmark?

I did not.

I am not really seeing it. I already have Events that give out VP tokens; that seems like the good simple version of combining the concepts. It's not like I wanted to try to cram two words onto that diagonal bar either.

how much was the starting deck with three estates influenced by the three estates

I thought you thought it was a slip because I said 'Jake's partners' instead of 'Roadrunner7671.'

Zero. The starting deck existed before the VP cards had names.

The question posed backwards ("how much was the choice of name for Estate influenced by the fact that there are three of them") would still hold some validity given your response but as estate as a plot of land and estate as a rank in society are completely different matters it would be a bad pun so I guess the answer would still be "zero".

It is still zero. A bad pun doesn't rule out a card name though; it's Baron because he's a real estate baron.

And Bridge Troll was kind of a pun too, right? It's like a Bridge but it trolls your opponent.

"Bridge" there is a reference to Bridge, but "Troll" isn't a reference to trolling (although trolling is a reference to trolls).

Also, Duchy must clearly be a foreshadowing of the eventual bad translation into the language of the Netherlands.

Arter Adventures, you made a promo event. Enpires is out now. Do you plan to follow a similar pattern and make a promo landmark?

Would you consider creating a digital expansion that is gradually gainable by going outside to hunt for cards via an augmented reality app?

Assuming, for the sake of argument, that you do keep making expansions at, say, one per year: how long before I get to see a card called "Squirt"?
