Something new

It's rare for a game to introduce a new mechanic that is so influential. It takes a minute to explain, is never confusing, and yet opens up a diverse and satisfying game. Plus I nearly lost a game of Dominion to my 6-year-old niece.

#22 Dominion
In the same vein of Castle Panic, Dominion helped bring people into our game group, we spent years playing this game in all its wonder. It has since been replaced by other deck builders with a little more complexity. However, it has recently resurfaced on my home table as it has eased my wife’s friends into game playing, so much so they game shelf has grown to encompass a variety of games from Dominion, to Photosynthesis, to the Castle of Mad King Ludwig, just within the last couple of months.

The game that created the flood of imitators.

This is the purest form of the mechanism. Others have tried to add more complexity, however, keeping players coming back to a more complicated game, which are usually longer playing, just never seems to stick.

Of course, there are plenty of games that have incorporated this mechanic as well, and would likely never have existed if it weren't for Dominion.

So many hundreds of plays, and while very seldom any more, the game remains an icon to me.

With Trigirl being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. Just don't lock clear her for tone. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably just be murdalated.

Dominion pioneered deck building, and did a great job at it. But as you get more cards, your kingdom possiblities grow as well which allows the discovery aspect of the game to grow.


doppio wrote:
This was my first deck builder, and I enjoy Dominion and its expansions so much I don't get why I didn't try them sooner. I love the challenge of trying to work out different strategies that will work with each different tableau of cards. This is a lot of variety with a manageable number of parts to juggle in my head each time I play.

I've played this online on three separate sites now, I think, and I'm lazy enough to prefer online play to actually having to physically assemble different sets of cards each time you play and shuffle and deal ad nauseum ...

Not a strong week. Wednesday it was another episode of the game quiz. We did poorly this time, too many video game questions. We'd do great with more board game questions, but won't definitely win the quiz cup this year if the current pace of video game questions continues.

My son wanted to play Dominion. We did, and he beat me twice.

Byzanz was quite decent with five players; not as fast and fun as with three, but worked quite well enough.

Last weekend the local game museum had a birthday party. We were there representing the board game scene. The giant Flamme Rouge, three times the normal size, was quite the attraction, and I did a presentation on how the 2018 will look like for board games based on 2017 trends.

This week Wednesday looks like a six-player game of Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant. Sweet.

Complete with another great box. I’m so glad to find this, as I traded away my last copy reluctantly, so I will probably hang on to this one.

This is by far my most played game. Great gateway game, and the expansions add endless variety. My favorite expansion is the Empires expansion. I created an online version of this that at one point was publicly available, but I took it down when the official online version came out.

My full review

Previous lists: Appeared on 2015's top ten (#1), lunchtime strategy games (#4)

Dominion is by far my most-played game, as I started recording games after my obsessive play-it-all-the-time phase, and I don't log digital games. Dominion doesn't have as much variety out of the box as Glory to Rome does, but as a system, it is exciting to sit down each game to a new menu of options. I thought after Guilds was released that Dominion days were over, that the system was closed and the cards I had were all I'd ever have. And then I found out Donald X. Vaccarino was saving the best for last, with Adventures and especially Empires opening the game to new vistas. Dominion is a game I will never tire of and always enjoy playing. I know other people have moved on to other deck builders, but for my money, there's still nothing that tops Dominion.
