So, after all these years... What is, in fact, the question you've been asked the most in interviews?
Probably something like, "how did you think of Dominion." Altenburger had me on a monitor at Essen one year, with people able to ask me questions, and there the most common question was, "do you have any games other than Dominion." Despite Kingdom Builder having won the SdJ already. But, interviewers don't ask that one.

Are you currently working on an expansion, and if so do you think that it will be in time for a 2021 release?
Yes, I'm still hoping for a set to be scheduled for mid-October, but then sadly be delayed until November 3rd, as usual.

Apologies if you've already said this somewhere and I've not noticed, but...

I'm assuming knowledge that Ways were on their... way played a big part in the timing of the 2019 2019 Errata and Rules Tweaks?

I don't think so. Dropping "from the something pile" was directly due to Horses. Changing e.g. Band of Misfits was because of issues with Band of Misfits. Changing stop-moving may have been affected by cards in Menagerie, but not Ways specifically. Dropping text from Bridge was probably inspired by dropping "from the something pile." The discard pile thing may have been due to a specific card, but not Ways.

Ways are like Enchantress, which already existed. I was sure considering them when considering rules changes, but I don't think they were the impetus.

How much are you involved with the Temple Gates version of Dominion? Answering rules questions? Testing? UI design or input?

I'm there, trying it to the degree that I make time for it, reporting bugs, offering opinions on the UI. Answering rules questions, sure.

Maybe you won't answer this question, but I'll give it a shot.  Will there be landscape cards in the next expansion? :)

That is in fact the kind of question I don't answer.

I don't. You could ask Altenburger.

I can answer this question. There won't be.


But there may or may not be landscape card-shaped things.

While it wouldn't be at all surprising to see new landscapes, if there's a new kind of landscape, we're rapidly running out of colours...

Don't worry, I googled it and there are over 10 million colours, so unless Donald X seriously picks up the pace I don't think we'll run out of landscape colours any time soon.

Too bad there are 10 million different types of landscape things in the next expansion!

Now Donald's going to make landscape cards that are considered cards, just to prove you wrong.

There will never be a cost card; that would ruin the "so close to " thing that Dominion has.
You can't have an Action-Treasure card; it would be too confusing.
You can't make cards that retrieve cards from the trash; it's trash for a reason!

^Still somewhat convinced that Donald X designs cards by looking at what people say you can't do and saying "oh yeah?"

Can you give away any reasons for the parting of Rio Grande and the prior German publisher Hans im Glück? I only found this BGG News post by W.E. Martin. To me, the official statements imply that HiG made the first step by shifting their Carcassonne license to Z-Man. I remember RGG having some issues with HiG though, like them spoiling the Hinterlands rulebook before Essen 2011. Would you say this played a role, or were there different issues in the background? Or was it just something like a financial disagreement?

I'm sorry, it's probably not a nice thing to ask about business relationships, but I thought maybe it is okay now that almost 10 years have passed. Thanks for keeping on doing the interview!

These all sound like questions for Jay Tummelson.

It was nothing to do with me or Dominion. They disagreed about money somewhere, I don't remember exact details. Someone thought someone owed them, the other thought no they didn't, something like that. I don't know who I would say was right if I had all the information. Somehow they reached a conclusive "this will not be solved" and stopped working together. Carcassonne did shift before Dominion, but it shifting was just a symptom, not a cause. At most it just indicated HiG being confident the problem would not be solved. Dominion moved to Altenburger, who had been printing it before for HiG. Later HiG checked to see if I would move Dominion to them, but RGG hadn't done anything wrong by me and I'm true to my school.

Will Gamble have its wording changed to "Discard the top card of your deck. If it's an Action or Treasure, you may play it" with the new rule about only being able to play cards if you can move them to the play area? I think the only card it affects is Patron

I don't have to rule out changing it, but haven't given it any thought, and don't feel obligated. It changes other things, it means you can trigger e.g. Faithful Hound.

Hypothetically, if Miser were not in Adventures, would you put it in Menagerie using Exile instead of the tavern mat?

He stopped doing expansions after Dark Ages. Adventures, Empires, Nocturne, Renaissance and Menagerie are anomalies. (-8
