Play Dominion from Rio Grande Games for a fun card came of strategy, luck and deck-building! You are a monarch, like your parents before you- a ruler of a small pleasant kingdom of rivers and evergreens. Unlike your parents, however, you have hopes and dreams! You want a bigger and more pleasant kingdom, with more rivers and a wider variety of trees. You want a Dominion! In all directions lie fiefs, freeholds and fifedums. All are small bits of land, controlled by petty lords and verging on anarchy. You will bring civilization to these people, uniting them under your banner! But wait! Several other monarchs have exactly the same idea. Race to get as much of the unclaimed land as possible, fending them off along the way. To do this you will hire minions, construct buildings, spruce up your castle, and fill the coffers of your treasury! Dominion finds each player trying to build a more profitable deck. Play cards from your hands to take action or purchase new cards and money! Wildly entertaining, Dominion is ideal for a friend or family game night!

Best uncollectible collectable card game I’ve ever played Dominion is a deceptively simple game which encompasses endless variation. The basic game contains the following major components:1. 25 groups of action cards, victory cards, and money cards, in total over 250 cards.2. Card storage and organizer box designed specifically for organizing the game components.3. The Rules.Game Play:A game starts with each player holding an identical 10 card deck. As the game begins a group of 10 special action cards are selected from the 25 categories in the box. The rules outline specific selections for scenario play or you can design your own lay out. There is no banker or moderator; all players start entirely equal with access to the exact same cards.During each player’s turn they may take actions and purchase new cards from the communal decks. Each player has to balance the need to buy new cards and money with the purchase of victory points (which remain in the player’s deck but don’t help them until…

Unbelieveably Addicting Game Ok, I have to start this review off by saying I had my reservations about this game. I absolutely love Euro strategy games like Puerto Rico, Agricola, Power Grid, Caylus, etc, but I’m not into card games. In fact, I pretty much hate card games.This game was getting a lot of publicity on BoardGameGeek and everyone was raving about it so I decided that I should buy it to give it a shot. I’m glad I did.The whole point of the game is to build your deck of cards and build up a collection of victory points. The reason this game shines is because it is a quick game that only takes about 30-40 minutes to play. It is also very fun because as you are building your deck of cards you aren’t usually getting rid of the cards. If you spend some gold to buy a card that gold goes back into your discard pile and will eventually be shuffled for you to use again in another turn.There are over 500 cards in this game with around 25 different action cards available so you…

Renewed family connection In the days of technology and scheduled events we struggle to find times to connect with our children. Dominion has helped us renew that connection. My wife and I plus both our sons (age 17 & 11) LOVE playing this game together. Whether you go in with a fine tuned strategy or just “make it up as you go along” the opportunity to enjoy the game and win is presented. We love that the entire game play lasts about 30-40 minutes, we don’t always have an entire day to devote to a game, but we have a half hour after dinner to enjoy the company of our kids. they will be moving out soon enough and beginning their own families. Dominion is a game that everyone wants to set aside what they are doing and play together. When was the last time your kids begged to play a game with Mom and Dad?
