Description Edit | History

(from the back of the box:)

"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 feodums. 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! It must be something in the air; several other monarchs have had the exact same idea. You must 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. Your parents wouldn't be proud, but your grandparents, on your mother's side, would be delighted."


In Dominion, each player starts with an identical, very small deck of cards. In the center of the table is a selection of other cards the players can "buy" as they can afford them. Through their selection of cards to buy, and how they play their hands as they draw them, the players construct their deck on the fly, striving for the most efficient path to the precious victory points by game end.

Dominion is not a CCG, but the play of the game is similar to the construction and play of a CCG deck. The game comes with 500 cards. You select 10 of the 25 Kingdom card types to include in any given play—leading to immense variety.


Part of the Dominion series.

1 Vidager's Storage Insert Solution - Fits everything in three core size boxes
Solution uses three identical inserts to three core sized Dominion boxes (you choose your favs). It will hold everything released for Dominion to date (Jan 2016), with extra room. This includes, cards, mats, tokens, manuals, dividers, etc. Sleeved cards should work fine as well, but I haven't tested it. Columns are 94mm wide (three columns per box).

3 Dominion card tray plans
Provides 20 slots (in 4 trays) for Dominion card piles during play (10 Kingdom, 3-4 Treasure, 3-4 Victory, 0-1 Curses, plus 1-4 spare for other piles). Perfect for sleeved cards, which tend to slide around without some kind of support. They can be stacked easily to move your game or put it away to continue later. Pictures: Laid flat - https://boardgamegeek.com/image/2747500/dominion Stacked up - https://boardgamegeek.com/image/2747501/dominion They are sized to fit the maximum size each type of pile can be, using sleeved cards. I built mine out of black 5mm foam-core board. Can be glued with cyanoacrylate, AKA super glue (you'll need a lot), hot glue, or PVA. I've tried all three. They all work well, but the PVA you'll need to leave overnight to dry. I've been using the trays for a...

9 A4 player mat
There are a number of player mats available, but a few things were not to my liking - particularly in A4 size. So I've created my own from scratch using some inspiration from others. I printed at 100% and laminated them, and have been using them for a couple of years. I thought I should share the love. Enjoy :-) BTW, if you find this useful, please leave a comment or give it a thumbs-up!
