Featured Game: Dominion

Dominion_gameDominion is the original deck-building game. In it you are a medieval monarch, building a bigger and more prosperous kingdom. The cards in your deck represent all parts of your kingdom, and in each turn you try to accumulate more. Each player starts with ten cards, and over the course of play selects Treasure cards, Kingdom cards, Curse cards, and Victory cards to construct a deck and embellish their very own Dominion. The player with the most victory points at the end wins.

I played this game one New Year’s Eve several winters ago. It’s a novel, fast-moving game once you get the hang of play. It can be played with two, three, or four players, and a game takes probably half an hour. If you’ve ever played Magic: The Gathering or another CCG, but you’ve never played a deck-building game, this is the one to start with.

Come by some time with friends and play!
