Maybe this information is available somewhere and I'm not privy to it, but does anyone know anything about the next expansion?

As much as I love Dominion, I just hope there is more than 4 months between Seaside and the next offering.

I don't believe Donald has released any info on the next expansion. I did read some where about 7 expansions. So I guess the next release would be the mid point in the series. Assuming there are 8 total releases.

I've heard rumors that the next expansion is treasure themed.

As for me, it can't come quickly enough. As a Magic player digesting large quantities of cards quickly and expecting more comes naturally to me.

It's going to be up to Jay to say exactly what's coming out when.

What I will tell you is, my best guess is that there will be two expansions a year for a few years, plus an occasional promo card. It would be nice if the expansions were typically 6 months apart, but there will always be random reasons for one to come out later or earlier.

Don't hold me to this; it's just my best guess. And if all of the expansions I have planned come out, I don't know what will happen then; I'll worry about that in a few years.

That sounds like an excellent plan. I've enjoyed the game immensely, and can't wait for the next installment. Twice a year is just right.

I read in your card synopses that there were a number of cards pulled from the 7 planned expansions that were used in the base game. I can only imagine that there are even more cards than the 200 that we "expect" (25 per release, 8 total releases)...can you make any comments on this? I'm very interested in how this game was originally developed.

Right after Halloween everyone puts up Christmas decorations.

Can't they wait until after Thanksgiving?

It would make sense to have a release in time for Essen (October) as that would also make it available for the Cristmas Season.

Any other expansion should either be announced at the Nürnberg Toy Fair (February) and released in the Spring - or kept for release at one of the major American conventions.

Thanks for the reply!

What can you tell us about the future of Dominion?
Will there be new card types?
Do all of the expansions add something new to the game (choices, duration, etc)?

I'm not going to tell you what's in the expansions. Man, what fun is that.

I wouldn't say they all add something new. But then you did mention "choices" as a new thing. Some of them add something new; others just have functional themes, like "choices." They all have new cards, regardless.

I just talked to Jay and he said I could pass along "spring" as the vague date for the next expansion.

Please tell me you are not licensing some version of a Disney theme lol. Arrrrrgh.

Given that there are 5 more expansions, how could a person say release a homebrew expansion pack for people to enjoy that does not take away from the planned release versions?

For example I have a tendative 26 card release I call "Dominion - Armies" that is not meant to be a bunch of loosely singular fan cards -- but a functional playable release? But if that collided with something released for the public then I would feel crappy about that.

Donald I guess you guys already have the cards all defined for the added releases -- but what if someone came up with a viable expansion add on and wanted to submit it??

Just curious.

Cheers.

Which suggest that it will be presented at the Toy Fair in February - and that we will have another expansion at Spiel '10.
