Deck building your empire
Dominion is a deck building game for 2-4 players that plays in about 30 minutes. Are the 500 cards you get with the base Dominion set enough to keep you entertained? Read on to find out
The Game Experience:
I first played Dominion a few years ago and was hooked instantly. The idea of a Deck Building game was brand new and I can’t believe no one had thought of the concept sooner. Many, many years ago I was an avid Magic: The Gathering player. One of my favorite parts of that game was constructing different game decks with all my cards. I’d spend hours pulling cards in and out of decks to try and make them better. Considering how much enjoyment I got from deck building back in the day, it makes a lot of sense that someone would turn that into a game.
First off, let me say that playing Dominion is a lot of fun. When I first played it, it felt different than any game I’ve played before. There are so many different strategies a player could use to try and win the game. It helps that the games are short enough that you can try out new strategies and if they don’t pan out, you’ve only give up 30 minutes. Nothing is worse than trying something different in a heavy euro game, only to realized that it’s not going to work and you have enough hour to suffer through in last place.
