Wasn't there some news late last year about a new company developing an app or other offline Dominion version? Sorry, I don't remember many details. Anyway, is that still happening? Is there somewhere I can check for updates on that?

There is no place to check for updates, though you can ask me like you did. They started testing but I have no idea when the release will be.

Since it seems like Covid is going to be around for a while, any chance of a new promo to give us something to enjoy during our personal quarantines?

The problem is that playtesting with adults isn't happening, due to the shutdown. I've put a lot of work into a new expansion, playing it with an 11-year-old, but I can't sign off on it until I've played it a bunch with adults. An individual promo would be less risky but well. I'd rather know more there too.

How about a hidden online implementation and online playtesting?

I was going to suggest playing via Zoom, where everyone has a set of the cards you're using. My partner played with her in law they way one night and they enjoyed it.

(in this case a promo would be easier than a new expanision*, as it's only one "custom" card)

* also, new expansion, post pandemic - wheeeeee!

or via Tabletop Simulator. I've enjoyed my playtest sessions for friend's games on there.

Playing online and playing physically aren't the same. Some things are easier, some harder. I know several designers who've been playtesting prototypes online this year, and none of them are willing to release their designs before they've played them physically.

The hidden online implementation hasn't gained traction. Conceivably we could get enough playtesting done that way, but we sure haven't.

A few games have been Zoomed.

Did you consider making Potion granting x$+Potion ? It sometimes feels weird having three estates, copper, potion in hand t3 for example..  just asking, ya know.
hopefully my questions don't feel too inconvenient.. Sorry, if they do. Anyway, big fan of your game!

No. The premise was an alternate resource; not a partially alternate resource. Many people over the years have thought they'd like "Potion +$" better. I've never felt much of a pull towards that though. So far what I like best is just not doing potions.
