Donald X., do they get your approval for finished/drafted art? Have you ever rejected a piece of artwork? What’s your role besides sending notes to the artist before they make anything?
These days I also get to see sketches, which sometimes I complain about (and they sketch again), and "final" art, which I rarely do (though I have).

I try to be friendly, to mostly let the artist draw whatever. The complaints tend to be like "people will complain that they can't tell that that's a woman so it must be a man and why aren't there more women, but it's not that we're asking for cleavage," and "they didn't have windows like that in medieval times." And sometimes the final art has a person that's supposed to be a woman but people decide must be a man and wow these guys suck for not having more women, and sometimes the final art has windows that they didn't have in medieval times.

Given that apparently sets with the same name as previous cards are now a thing, it could be Dominion: Distant Lands.

Dominion: Mine

"Which expansion do you want to play?"
"Mine"
"Yes, but which one of yours?"

You've mentioned that you're hoping to get a set out in October-November. Other expansions released around then (Nocturne + Renaissance) were officially announced the first week of August. Can we expect to see an announcement for this mysterious next set sometime soon?
I'll know about the announcement at the same time as everyone else. It's not a carefully orchestrated thing, it's just kind of random.

Will it still be this year, though? I think lots of people out there are very excited for the next expansion.

The future can foil your plans, but right now the card images have a 2021 date on them. Art is still not all in. The big question though is shipping. I have no further information there.

probably just the usual: it will come with over 30 cards total, it will have a vaccuum-plastic tray, it will come in a cardboard box and shrinkwrap, and be made by rio grande games.

We now expect the expansion out in January. This is just due to when we could get it printed.

The usual terse description will come out at some point from RGG, and then someone will see it and post it. As always I leave these things up to the publisher.

January? Fingers crossed I resume playing board games face to face with a backlog of only one Dominion expansion, then!

No sooner than physical copies are available (but possibly exactly that soon).

Long time reader, first time asker.

1) What's the reason for the new errata replacing "While this is in play" with "This turn"?

2) Will Goons get "This turn" too?

Thanks a bunch!

It's all about simplicity. "This turn" is easier for players than "while this is in play."

Merchant Guild is getting this errata, whenever Mixed Box next gets printed. That's the only thing official currently. Merchant Guild needed errata anyway, to deal with the Coffers rules change (which is also about simplicity). People know about Merchant Guild because the Temple Gates Games version of Dominion is only ever going to have the new Coffers rule, so it needed the Merchant Guild (and Patron) errata immediately.

Specific wordings of other cards will remain a mystery for now. I didn't forget about Goons, I didn't just scribble some text on it and figure it would be fine with no testing and then move on.

Perish the thought! I fully trust any changes you make, as always.

This certainly comes close to being something I'd actually answer about an unreleased expansion. I'm still measuring it as over the line though.

When the expansion is printed ("early December"), we'll have a better idea of when it will get to stores, which will determine when the previews are.

I like the idea of holidays like "on this day, eat foods native to the Americas," but have not had any specific involvement with it.
