Dominion has taken the gaming world by storm since it was released in 2008. I first noticed the game climbing up the BGG Game Ranking List in late 2009. We decided to purchase the game for some friends as a wedding gift, I believe in early 2010. The game became a huge success with our friends and in late 2010 my brother purchased Dominion Intrigue for me as a birthday gift. Mrs. GWT loves this game. I would have to say that this one would make it into both of our Top 5s and maybe both of our Top Two's. The game is simple to play, easy to learn, but offers tons of variety and depth. There are countless ways to win, and your strategy changes based on the cards that are in play. There are numerous expansions now with more on the way. We currently have Intrigue, which is a standalone expansion, as well as Prosperity, Cornucopia, and Alchemy. Recently, I took a wooden photo box and made it into my new Dominion box. It's about the size of a standard Dominion box, but holds the three expansions as well.
Dominion has gotten a lot of love in our home. We love to play it with just the two of us, however, it also works very well with three or four players. Since the game scales so well, it makes it to the table often. A great game all around. If you don't have a copy in your collection, and you need a deck building game, get the one that started it all. It's still the best in my opinion and offers the most for your money.
Number One will be coming very soon, and if you follow the blog, you should have a pretty good guess at what it's going to be.
