Not that it makes much sense to discuss a topic with a rude guy who accuses me of sucking at English or at using several accounts.
I am indeed rude. For example I am rude enough to say, that it will be awesome if you do not actually make a new account after this one is banned.
In fact he made a new account a few minutes later to say

I guess hey, it's rude to accuse someone of making multiple accounts even if they're doing it.

Edit: theory reports that that account's email address is gofuckyourselfdonald@gmx.at. I am just reporting this because it's hilarious.

Donald,

2017 has been pretty quite for new Dominion.  I know you don't usually discuss if you have new stuff in the works but do you let us know when you are NOT working on new Dominion?

Isn't complexity limited by the fact you only use 10 kingdom cards?

Well, a lot of people sometimes bring up these cards like Thief and Scout. Those must be imaginary Dominion cards.

Hey Donald, what has been your favorite Dominion set to design/play?
It's hard to answer the design question. I don't have, like, memories of those great evenings spent listing ideas. It was easier earlier on. Well not at the very very beginning, but right after that. But uh I don't know if that means it was more fun.

The favorite set question has been asked before. In the early days it was War, then War turned into Dark Ages and it was Dark Ages. I don't like the question much at this point because I didn't want to just say Adventures when Adventures came out or Empires when Empires came out, it feels too uh intelligent promotiony.

I can't sit and make myself want nothing
But I won't go knocking doors to find out
How many tickets to me I can sell


And it's not like there have really been low points, in terms of those experiences for me. It sucked that Alchemy had a tight schedule, but we enjoyed the playtesting games. I did hate playtesting Pirate Ship because someone always thought it was broken. I felt like Intrigue had more mistakes than Prosperity, to the point of me fixing some of Intrigue's with the 2nd edition, but designing/playtesting weren't worse for that.

Can't say I'm surprised, but thanks for answering  :D . I've got another one thats probably been asked. I played Dominion every night for the last year, and I still love Dominion but right now I'm kind of sick of playing it. You've probably played more Dominion than anyone else. Way more than me anyways. When you've had to design/playtest more sets are you rarin to go or are you like "bllaaaaaaaahhh, not more Dominion"?

I understand you used to program dialysis machines for a living. What would you say you liked best about that job, and what was the worst.

Do you think you would still be as successful if you didn't have a cool name like Donald X. and had something dorky like Dave P. Gilbert instead?

My games mostly push variety, with even more variety if I am working on them and thus adding/changing things. And they always push "things Donald X. enjoys." So I don't tend to get sick of them! I do not get sick of Dominion.

I'm sure I don't come close to the record for most games played if we count online games. For just games IRL, I'm up there.
