Back when I was a new player, Chapel's existence made a huge positive impact on my enjoyment of Dominion. Though I can't take any credit for discovering on my own that trashing was a good thing; that moment when I read about how good players will trash their starting deck and easily beat anyone who doesn't do such was an amazing and great moment in my personal Dominion history.

Speaking of Chapel and Witch:

At some point in the past, there were the Four Pillars of Dominion:  Chapel, Witch, Gardens, and... Thief.

So, with Thief gone... do you feel there's a new fourth pillar?  Is it Bandit?

I feel more like, there are 26 pillars for changing how the base game plays. There aren't really 26 to the same degree but you know.

I feel like every player comes to that realization in a different way. For me, it was Salvager.

Every Dominion blurb is hilarious, but which one is your personal favourite? Hinterlands has always (excluding the time when it didn't exist) been the best for me.

Only* on this forum is such a qualification necessary.

The Hinterlands one. The main joke is from one of my screenplays. "It's a big city out there, and we're little people..."

I think you've said your wife has helped playtest, but are your kids old enough to play Dominion?  Are they any good at it?

Contrary to popular belief, I do not run the wiki all on my own.  There are plenty of other people who are actively editing.  Go bother them!

Natalie has refused to try it so far, though she suggested the new wording for Library. Sylvia plays sometimes, but we show no mercy and she does not win.

And only on this forum would someone reply to point out that it's not accurate; there was a time that the blurb existed but Theta hadn't seen or read it yet; so it wasn't his favorite yet.
