Dominion, winner of the 'Spiel des Jahres in 2009, is the game that launched a thousand ... other games sort of just like it, but different. Ken B. declared that Dominion was "Good shit!"

Before too long our reviewers where telling us that one of the many deck builders that quickly followed, such as Ascension and Artic Scavengers, were better than Dominion. So what do you think? Do you still play Dominion? Do you play other deck builders?...

So, as the Ascension players amongst you will already know, I have the app on my iPad. I’ve played the game and lot and enjoyed it, got my money’s worth, but frankly I’m starting to get a little bored of it, even with the added pleasure of losing repeatedly to you lot. I guess deckbuilders aren’t really my thing: there’s not been one pure deck building game I’ve really enjoyed.

Dominion is an undeniably clever card game in which players use action ("kingdom") and money ("treasure") cards to buy additional action cards, additional money cards, and victory point cards. The basic idea is that newly purchased action/money/VP cards are eventually re-shuffled back into the deck; as a result, each player's deck steadily increases in size and becomes increasingly more powerful. When the game ends, the winner is the player who has the greatest sum total of VP cards in his/her deck.

In Dominion, each player starts with an identical, very small deck of cards. In the center of the table is a selection ofother cards the players can "buy" as they can afford them. Throughtheir selection of cards to buy, and how they play their hands as theydraw them, the players construct their deck on the fly, striving forthe most efficient path to the precious victory points by game end.
