I recently played Dominion for the first time. During this first game (and following a conversation regarding the card size / sleeve sizes) I felt like this game could use a retheme if it were to remain a game I readily desire to play - and I really wanted it to. I had also recently discovered the FPS game for the PC, Left 4 Dead. My love of all things zombie and my desire to improve the theme for this game sparked the following retheme.









EDIT:

Created the new "Envoy" card equivalent:

I was lucky enough to play this version last night.

It's an excellent re-theme.

It did take a while to get the new terminology working in my head. (Treasure is now Aim, and a Buy is now a Target.)

Normally, I am not a fan of re-theming a game, but this one is awesome!

Come on Venton, on your rush to get out this admittedly awesome post, you leave out the most important point....

This re-theme is awesome.

Good work. I was expecting a witch to still be a witch, which I thought funny, but alas, it was renamed I wish I could buy this somewhere.

I have thought about a card back design but since I used black backed card sleeves I didn't pursue it as of yet.

This was my first thought as well but I tried to keep the Left 4 Dead details to a minimum. I wanted to stick with a broader zombie survival feel to keep the card names as straightforward as I could for those not familiar with L4D.

All life is only a set of pictures in the brain, among which there is no difference betwixt those born of real things and those born of inward dreamings, and no cause to value the one above the other.

This is awesome. Great work!

I'm not interested in this game as it is, but I'd certainly play the zombie version!

Yes I was one of the lucky ones to play this retheme also that 1st night. I never played the original but let me say this was a fun game with the theme. I would even buy the original if it had this theme myself.

Great job Apparatus

To anyone thinking about doing this, the game has 500 cards so it may take a bit to make them all. You will need what he did have some friends stuff them. We were all playing a game and stuffing cards in sleeves lol.

Truly excellent! Personally I would have gone for 'Ammo' over 'Aim', and 'Kills' over the current Zombie vps, but then I'm just picky.

Hold on. I hear shambling knockings at my door.
