Game Feature: Dominion
Most of us are familiar with boardgame classics like Monopoly and Scrabble, but there are lots of exciting games available that aren't quite so widely known. In the coming weeks, we'll be sharing a few of our favorites that are perfect for family get-togethers, parties, and more. First up of our featured games is Dominion!
A classic deck building game, Dominion is a great option for family game night. The game is made up of 500 cards, which two to four players use to build the biggest and best kingdom. This is accomplished by building up the deck in your hand with just the right mix of cards. Luck and strategy both play a role as you draw new cards, decide which to play, which to hold, and which to discard. The winner is the player with the most Victory Points in your deck at the end of the game. It's an easy game to learn to play, but takes practice to hone your strategy, especially since the element of chance means there are always new challenges to overcome. Each game takes only twenty to thirty minutes. Dominion is best for ages 12 and up, but younger children may also enjoy the game with a little help and guidance.
When you're ready to move up from building your kingdom, expansion packs are also available that allow you to take your Dominion into new lands, time periods, and more.
