Perfect finish to the series. The coin saves provide a fantastic finale to the series of mechanical plot twists that came with each expansion.

The final Dominion expansion is fairly unspectacular - no flashy exotic cards here, compared with a dozen or so in Dark Ages - but still lives up to the high standards of all the other expansions. Both of the new mechanics (coin tokens which you can save up to spend whenever you want, and getting special effects when buying some cards if you are prepared to spend more than their printed cost) are relatively straightforward mechanically, but lead to some pretty interesting decisions. There's the usual kind of card mix here (some +actions, some +cards, a treasure card, a couple of attacks - although interestingly there is no victory card), and yet the new elements are enough to make them all feel different from already existing cards - an impressive feat when there are now around 200 of them!

Donald X has called this the most skill-based of the expansions, and I think I'm inclined to agree. The big decisions in Dominion are usually what to buy and when, although there are more than a few cases, particularly with the later expansions, where it's not totally obvious how to play each hand either. Guilds extends this to when to cash in coin tokens for extra buying power, and whether to buy that Gold or overpay by 3 for that 3-cost card for a cool "overpay" effect. I suspect this would actually be an excellent expansion for those relatively new to Dominion and who like meaty decisions without lots of potentially confusing card interactions.

I'm not as much of a fanboy as I used to be, but I still love Dominion and I will be getting this.

These previews look amazing. I'm getting this as soon as it's released.

Just as imagined, the coin tokens add a deeper planning element to the game, more than just deciding which cards to buy.

Outstanding small expansion for Dominion which I'm always happy to play with. I really like the overspend and coin spending mechanisms here.

Great expansion. I'd probably rate Guilds higher if it had been a larger expansion.

I wish the ideas in this expansion could have been explored a little further. Still there's a lot of bang in this box.

I think an expansion to Dominion would just have to be a box full of blank cards for me to dislike it. I haven't played with all the cards in this expansion yet, but I like the couple of new mechanisms. Having cards that you can overpay for is a good idea, and I like some of the different benefits you get for overpaying. Also the cards that let you rack up money to be spent later are quite interesting. Nothing really dramatic changes with these cards, but that's OK in a mini expansion. I just enjoy exploring the infinite combinations I can now create with all my expansions to one of my favorite games. As usual, these cards will be mixed in for all future random kingdom deck draws, and I look forward to seeing what else they have to offer. Because it's more stuff for one of my favorite games it's going to get a perfect rating. Of course if you don't like Dominion, this isn't going to change your mind.
