So does this mean that DROP {DATABASE | SCHEMA} [IF EXISTS] is already taken?

Do you think you'd ever make a card with a double divinding line? Or if you can't answer that, would a doube line ever stop a card from existing? Or at least be a significant point against it?

If you hosted an outlandishly expensive and baroque Dominion tournament, such as the tournaments in Yu-Gi-Oh! where various millionaires host hundreds of teenagers on an island or in the streets of a city, using advanced hologram technology, what body part would you replace with an ancient Egyptian artifact and why?

This is where Bill Simmons, back in his mailbag column days, would write "Yep, these are my readers," and end the column.

HiG put a double dividing line on the German Lighthouse.

I decided against doing it because it would be extra complex. It's killed concept arrangements in the past; I don't have an example offhand, but like, if Highway had wanted a when-gain ability, I would have done Highway differently, or put the when-gain elsewhere, you know. None of the ideas necessarily die, but the combination does.

There are cases where a card is cheaty on the dividing line; Noble Brigand says "when you buy this or play it," which are two different times but there's no line. So that's a way three timings could sneak onto a card.

We also have Rocks and Crumbling Castle now with "when you gain or trash this".

Perhaps this has already been answered somewhere, but, what's the schedule for the rest of the 2nd editions? Also, would you ever consider replacing cards in Alchemy or even revamping it into a full size expansion?

I can't predict everything, but as things stand I have no plans to replace cards in the later sets.

Seaside came closest but there were issues with replacing a few of the cards I might have, and overall it just didn't compare to fixing up Dominion and Intrigue.

Okay Alchemy actually has plenty to fix, but it doesn't make sense to take on that project. Alchemy has some vocal fans who want to see more potion stuff, but there are enough people that just don't like the potion premise (separate from the other issues, mainly being too slow of a set) that it would just never make sense to work on fixing Alchemy rather than any other project I might work on.

Instead there could have been 1-2 new cards in each of 4-6 expansions, with a single upgrade pack with all of the new cards. That's not perfect - maybe you bought a mix of new and old sets and the upgrade pack is half redundant for you. But uh it's an idea to toss around. And well I didn't end up doing it. We're revising all the sets from Seaside to Adventures (as described in the OP), but without new cards.

If by that you mean, what's the schedule for the revised versions of the sets with larger font, etc., there isn't one. They will get updated as they go out of print, and they will not be announced beforehand.

Each expansion (besides Intrigue and Empires) will get re-released with bigger text, more centering, "they," etc., but no new cards. They are not labelled as 2nd editions but you will always be able to distinguish them, if nothing else then by the back cover text referring to 1st editions of Intrigue (where can you get the base cards). There is no precise schedule; they will come out based on running out of stock and printer availability.

Alchemy is not getting revamped or enlarged. I do not expect to ever be in a position where that's the best project I could work on; there will always be something better.

Because I liked the idea of what it actually is, and it all worked out.

Hmm.  Has Alchemy ever gone out of stock, i.e. requiring a reprint or second printing?

Probably. I think it's one of the most purchased expansions, owing to how early it was released.

I have no information there, but logically it must have. And it continues to sell at whatever slow rate I can't report.

Maybe it wasn't clear that of course Alchemy will get bigger text and "they" and all that. It just won't get more cards etc., as people never tire of requesting.

I just redid my storage box and there's room for about two more expansions in there. I do not at all mind finding a new solution; please do make >2 more expansions.

What is your definition of art, if you have one? It's a tricky question.

Art is what's in the frame. Frank Zappa's definition.

I'm working on a found art piece that collects rhetorical questions. I don't think that one will make it though.

So, do you consider (board)game design a form of art?
Or to put it another way, are a title and a game box a valid frame?
