For future printings, would you consider unifying the Tavern Mat, Exile Mat, and Island Mat?
The Tavern mat is different from the Exile mat, they do not want to be combined. If I were making the game from scratch they might be turned into one thing, but I'm not. The Island mat sure doesn't need to be a separate thing, but the way to get rid of that mat is to stop printing Island.

Or just tell people to set the cards aside? We never bother with the Island mats anyway.

Island could use the Tavern Mat with very little change in functionality (you're never Islanding away Reserve cards in any normal situation).

The prototype used the Island itself as a "mat", if memory serves.

We just make a stack of all the Islanded cards with an Island on top.

If Island used the Tavern Mat, I think Miser would be the most significant interaction?

Is there wording on current cards that are specifically anticipating future cards?

It's probably terribroken: worthless if there are no Events, and potentially ridiculously strong if there are.

What about having an event that reduces the cost of other events?

About being worthless, it could be not only about events. I also think it would be probably too strong, but my friends came with this discussion and I want to know if it is really an entirely unavoidable issue.

There stopped being planned future cards as of Dark Ages / Guilds.

At the same time, hypothetical things I might do, that would want wordings to already be nice for them, have mostly happened already in sets, so they're not future things.

Events assume that that cost reducer won't ever exist. I don't know how bad it would actually be; it's not something I have to figure out, as long as the plan is to not do it. There is not much of a pull towards doing it at this point.

Assuming it stacks like any other cost reduction, it would be broken with a few of the events that you can buy repeatedly--Gamble, Delve, and Travelling Fair could be very strong if their cost gets reduced to 0.

Are there any landscape cards you plan to bring back? Since Adventures, every expansion had at least one type of landscape card. Will you continue this?

It isn't the kind of thing I announce this far in advance. In general I like to do them, since they add a lot of content.

When will the next expansion be released? End of 2020? 2021?

I would love to have more cards! I have my little extension with 12 landscape cards (the Laws http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=20293.0), but it is only playable IRL... My dream would be to program them on Dominion Online (maybe in tab fan made?)! Or that you will release a concept similar to Laws cards.
Your game is very addictive and fun! (Sorry for my bad english)

There will probably be another expansion eventually. They don't tend to get announced far in advance.

Right now my game nights are on hiatus and well the world doesn't know when they will come back.

Which out of the "standard" landscape cards (Events, Ways, Projects, and Landmarks) do you like the best? Which do you not like as much as the others?

Events are the best, and you can see that three expansions have them. Some of them should have been Projects (e.g. Lost Arts), which I put 2nd. Then Ways; then Landmarks last. I still like Landmarks, but they add way less than the other three.

Is there a secret history to the throne room+duration rule? I've always kinda wondered why it exists. It seems like it made the design of a few cards (tactician, outpost, procession) more complicated.

It goes back to before the cards had "duration" on the bottom of them. Something has to track what you're getting next turn. The duration card stays out because it has "something left to do"; the idea is, the Throne also has something left to do.

In retrospect it would have been better if duration cards not in play didn't do anything (and, if cards you couldn't put into play also didn't do anything). That clears up Procession.

Outpost has an anti-Throne clause. Ideally it would have some form that didn't need that.

Tactician has an extra cost on getting your bonus next turn; that premise requires dealing with the tracking rule, unless the extra cost is something you can always pay (e.g. taking debt).

I was just reading through the secret histories, for Conspirator you say that it replaced a really crazy card late into set development that was to be fixed up for a later expansion. Has a fixed version of that card been released and if so what is it?

As things stand, the fix here is to not provide ways to get Duration cards out of play, since with the errata to Procession there's just Bonfire and and Mandarin. Bonfire is easy. Mandarin would look weird. But, it's something I can consider still when those sets get reprinted.

Have your thoughts on this changed? Now with Way of the Butterfly, Horse or Turtle, it's possible to play Throne Room + Duration, and both remove the Duration (using the Way) and play it for its own ability. You'd have a Duration effect for next turn but no cards to track it.
