|Best of the first 3 Dominion Sets! Can be played as a standalone game. Much more player interaction in this set.
|This amazing little game has many virtues, among them versatility. The simple, intuitive rules become familiar to even a non gamer halfway through the first game, and games are short, making it a great "hook" game. It's clear enough for reasonably bright children. The strategy and the feel of the game change with every new combination of starting cards, giving it terrific replay value, and the short duration makes it fit into gaming schedules very well. It can be played by two to four players, more with the Intrigue standalone expansion, so it's perfect for waiting for late arrivals, or an end of the night quicky, but it still stands ready to do service as a main selection; you can play six games in a row without things getting stale. It's a simple card game, but it's a different simple card game every time. Great value for your gaming dollar. I recommend starting with Dominion : Intrigue, and adding the original game as an expansion to it. You'll want both, though.
|Intrigue is aptly named because it adds a new complexity to the game: cards with more than one option on them. It allows for some new strategies and interesting decisions. Intrigue also contains the base game cards, so you could combine it with Dominion and have a 5 or 6 player game. Enjoy!
|This stand alone expansion is great! I recommend it before the original set. I like the twist of having cards that are both Treasure/Vicotry or Action/Victory or Action/Treasure. I love the challenge of choosing the right combination of cards at the right pace that will lead to victory. The learning curve is not as bad as it might appear so the game is pretty accessible with a good amount of strategy. My wife and I love it.
|Interesting cards that add quite a bit to the standard selection. Nothing too game-breaking, but a nice addition if you've already been bitten by the Dominion bug.
|Certainly the best of the Dominion expansions, and a must-have. More interaction, more nasty attacks! A stand-alone set that works great either alone or mixed with the base game.
