What Makes Dominion Such a Great Game?

The game is based on the deckbuilding mechanic. In the game, each player starts with an identical, small deck of cards. During the game, players draw cards from their deck to play, and use the resources depicted on those cards to buy more cards from the central pool, which contains a variety of cards that can help players win the game. What I love about Dominion is that it's a very strategic game. You have to think ahead and plan your moves carefully in order to be successful. It's easy to make mistakes, and the consequences of those mistakes can be disastrous. A lot depends on luck, but it's still possible to win even if you don't draw the right cards at the right times. Dominion is a very exciting game to play because there are so many possibilities for strategy and action that each game is very different from the next.



It seems like there are always at least two equally good choices available at any given moment because there are so many factors involved in each decision point; this makes gameplay very exciting because there are so many possibilities for strategy rather than just simple luck-based roll-and-move mechanics like some other games use. The deckbuilding mechanic creates lots of depth despite being simple compared with other board games; it’s easy enough for anyone who knows how to play chess or checkers but deep enough that experienced gamers enjoy playing as well as beginners do.


I love having an ever-changing deck of cards that I can constantly add to or subtract from depending on what's happening in the game. This allows for a lot more strategy than if players had static collections of cards instead of decks, because you can think about what options you might have in future turns instead of just focusing on what's happening now.



Dominion is a game that can be enjoyed by players of all ages and skill levels. It's easy to learn but can be complex enough to keep experienced gamers engaged. The variable gameplay and ever-changing decks make Dominion an extremely replayable game, and I never get bored of playing it. If you're looking for a fun, challenging board game that you can enjoy with your friends, I highly recommend Dominion.
