"Awesome"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Brought this for my son for xmas, he played it with family up north and had to have it himself. Great for your brain, makes you think. Plus it's nice to see them doing this than always on the xbox. If you want a challenging game and alot of fun this is it.

"Great Game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Awesome. Lots of variety and no two games are ever the same. Be prepared for a lot (and I mean a lot) of shuffling.

"Very addictive and easy to learn"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Bought this game as my sister had introduced it to me and I had such a blast playing it. We have had great fun and it really is easy to pick up and play, but since you only use 10 out of 25 action cards in each game it makes each game very different and unique. Great for the person that loves complex board games but also great for the novice.

"Great short fun game with endless variety"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Dominion is really fun, I've played it both with “gamers” and non-gamers, and everyone has really loved it. It is designed to have a whole heap of variety and replayability, even before you buy the expansions. Buy it!

"Fun, fast and family friendly"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A great game with plenty of variation for replayability. All our games have been closely fought with only several points between the winner and losers

Description

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

From the back of the box: "You are a monarch, like your parents before you, a ruler of a small pleasant kingdom of rivers and evergreens. Unlike your parents, however, you have hopes and dreams! You want a bigger and more pleasant kingdom, with more rivers and a wider variety of trees. You want a Dominion! In all directions lie fiefs, freeholds, and feodums. All are small bits of land, controlled by petty lords and verging on anarchy. You will bring civilization to these people, uniting them under your banner."

"But wait! It must be something in the air; several other monarchs have had the exact same idea. You must race to get as much of the unclaimed land as possible, fending them off along the way. To do this you will hire minions, construct buildings, spruce up your castle, and fill the coffers of your treasury. Your parents wouldn't be proud, but your grandparents would be delighted."

Dominion is not a CCG, but the play of the game is similar to the construction and play of a CCG deck. The game comes with 500 cards. You select 10 of the 25 Kingdom card types to include in any given play -- leading to immense variety.
