Dominion: Seaside Expansion
From the Publisher...
All you ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by. And someone who knows how to steer ships using stars. You finally got some of those rivers you'd wanted, and they led to the sea. These are dangerous, pirate-infested waters, and you cautiously send rat-infested ships across them, to establish lucrative trade at far-off merchant-infested ports. First, you will take over some islands, as a foothold. The natives seem friendly enough, crying their peace cries, and giving you spears and poison darts before you are even close enough to accept them properly. When you finally reach those ports
you will conquer them, and from there you will look for more rivers.
One day, all the rivers will be yours.
This is the 2nd addition to Dominion. It adds 26 new Kingdom cards to Dominion. Its central theme is your next turn; there are cards that do something this turn and next, cards that set up your next turn, and other ways to step outside of the bounds of a normal turn. Dominion: Seaside is an expansion to both Dominion and Dominion: Intrigue. As such, it does not contain material for a complete game. Specifically, it does not include the Treasure, Victory, Curse, or Trash cards. Thus, you will need either the base game or Intrigue to play with this expansion and have experience playing Dominion with either of the first two games. It is designed to work with either or both of these sets, and any future expansions that may be published.
We hope you enjoy this expanding world of Dominion!

|Must-have expansion for Dominion fans. Seaside introduces a new concept to the world of Dominion, duration cards. Duration cards are cards whose effects last more than one turn, adding a new level of depth to gameplay.
|Seaside is a perfect expansion. It adds new elements without changing the spirit of the base game. The pieces that come with it are top notch (gold coins that are actually metal!). The new cards themselves allow for some great new strategies (many cards last for more than 1 turn). Enjoy!
|I absolutely love Dominion. I love that my wife enjoys Dominion. This is the best exapnsion so far to the series. The duration cards are awesome! There are some cards that put a great spin on my favorites from the original. I could almost do without the base set now.
|If you have played Dominion, if you have read about Dominion, if you're interested in ever playing Dominion, you probably should just accept now the fact that each expansion for Dominion has been well done and is worth being purchased. The sheer amount of variety that this expansion brings to the base game warrants a purchase. Get it now!

|The double-use orange cards added to Dominion in this expansion are my favorite new mechanic so far. They make for tough choices since you sacrifice a small gain in the present for a larger gain on your next turn.
|The next level of complexity for Dominion fans looking for expanded gameplay. Duration cards and cards needing chips and counters to track their ongoing effects allow for cards that have increasingly powerful gameplay effects as the game goes on. Pure fun for fans of Dominion.
|I like the new cards. Generally, this set is less complicated than the Intrigue set because of the duration cards. Lovely components and of course, it is a plus that pirates are included. Yarr!
|Seaside is really fun. The new orange cards can be a little confusing, but once you get the hang of them they open a whole new level of gameplay and strategy. Even without these new orange cards, there are many great cards here, such as the sea hag or warehouse :)
