What is this? What is an "unofficial expansion" exactly? Are the cards vetted by Donald X.? Are these just fan-made cards that get their own game entry?

Also, will the cards be available in hard copy at all? I don't sleeve my cards, is it feasible for me to make a set?

I think the game description on BGG is perfectly clear, but I do think it should say who the designer is.

The BGG game description is very poorly-worded in a way that makes it seem like Donald is the designer. It says "'Dominion: Fairy Tale' is a free, print-and-play expansion for the game Dominion, by Donald X. Vaccarino." Obviously, what it means is "'Dominion: Fairy Tale' is a free, print-and-play expansion for the game (Dominion, which is by Donald X. Vaccarino)." However, it's extremely easy to read it as "'Dominion: Fairy Tale' is a free, print-and-play expansion for the game Dominion. It is by Donald X. Vaccarino."

I don't think it was so unclear, but it's a wiki so I just edited it. I don't think anyone could object to it now.

Since this is unofficial, why does it get its own page? Shouldn't it just be a downloadable file connected with Dominion's page?

No one has rated this a "10" yet. It can't possibly be Dominion!

Didn't know what to spend all this sweet GG on, so I bought the overtext.

So does zombinion get its own page? How about any of the other fan-created rethemes?

I am skeptical that this unofficial expansion meets the criteria described there. It seems more an idea than a finished project.

Now its BGG status seems to be "under review".

I think the decisions have been well made. Remember, the more that people can be involved with something they like, the more they do it and the more they buy it and the more they share it with their friends who buy it. Remember when music first played for free on the radio? Well, I don't either, I'm too young, but as I have heard it - at first the record companies were up in arms about the whole thing, this giving away the music for free thing. Then they realized that it actually translated into more record sales ~ and we still have free radio (minute royalties not withstanding).

Anyway, my thanks and gratitude to all those in the Dominion sphere for allowing such sharing, and to those creating more fun cards for us to play with!
