I don't remember if this has been asked before... But why does Farmland say "exactly $2" instead of "up to $2"?

Have you seen Gone Girl? Did you know about the Dominion product placement in the film?

I have not seen that particular flick. These days I am unlikely to see a movie before Netflix has it. And they didn't pay me to say that.

I didn't know about that specific product placement until reading about it within the last few days. I did know that Jay decided some time ago to try out product placement.

In Greed, is money supposed to be public information or can you hide form others how much you have?

Why is Temporum called Temporum (genitive plural form) and not Tempora (nominative form)?

Why is it feodums and not feuda? The answer is that I don't know Latin, and neither does anyone else on the path from me to publication. I realized that there might be a better form of the word at some point after it was locked in and before it was public. I did nothing.

Alayna (the artist) suggested the name Temporum. I asked people which names they liked from a list, and that one got picked more often than others. I didn't ask people what they thought of Tempora, or whatever other forms of the word; for all I know they were responding to the "um" sound, and would have gone for some other name otherwise.

If it had ended up called "Tempora," there would have been a ton of jokes about breading and deep-frying the game pieces.

Or about egg-based paints.

There's hope.  Maybe one day we'll be discussing Dominion: Herbal Teas

Which part?  Donald said last page there would probably be more expansions (hence the link).  Dominion: Herbal Teas is a possible expansion name if so many expansions come out that he runs out of good names.  Let me know if it's all clear.

Yeah I saw that he considered another expansion but I must have read over "Herbal Teas" so I didn't get how you came up with that name ;)

I actually don't want a new expansion. I have an awesome box that fits everything and I really can't add much in it. Also I simply don't play it enough to justify the price at this point.

As much as it's sacrilegious, I kind of agree. There are enough cards now that nothing comes up too often and you'll never see every kingdom. One of the things that I like about dominion is that unlike Magic or other TCG's, you can actually own all the cards and there isn't this requirement to constantly be buying new things to catch up. I would totally be excited about another expansion, but the idea of more expansions being released despite the number of times Donald has explained why it isn't a good idea, worries me.

I agree that more expansions aren't needed, but I wouldn't complain if there was another small expansion. I enjoy seeing new cards as long as it's not every other week. If there are new cards that worth worth slapping together for another expansion I'd buy it, but don't force it just because it would more cards.

I'd rather see small packs (3-5 sets of 10) selling for like $10-15 with focuses on popular mechanics. (like durations, or potions, or treasures)

Bad news! There will probably be another expansion someday. For sure if there isn't something worth doing, I won't do it, but what are the odds.

Get working on boxes that can hold the universe. Wait, just turn the existing box inside out.

Oh I would certainly welcome another expansion, it's the potential for more expansions without end that I don't like.
