I'm the designer of Eminent Domain, so of course I rate it a 10. That is not a shill rating. Yes, I am biased toward the game I made. I am also biased toward all games I like and rate highly.

I'm very happy with how Eminent Domain has come out. You can read my Designer Diary about it for some neat background info.

This game is simply great. After 28 plays I upgraded my rating from a 9 to a 10. Each time I play I just like it more and more.

Short version: Absolutely love this game. Easily my favorite card game.

Long Version: read my review of EmDo here for my thoughts on what makes it tick.

An Overdue Review [emphasis on EmDo vs Dominion]

Update: I'm finally able to put into words one of the things I really like about this design. The point scoring is largely incremental, meaning you will generally gain a few points at a time. There will not often be huge turns where you do so much that you vault out to a huge lead. This game rewards consistent efficiency rather than a couple big moves and that's a focus I really appreciate, especially in a deck building format.

My favorite deck builder, because of the very high strategy/skill as opposed to luck elements. There is random, but it's reduced to the point where it's still very skill based. Maintaining memory of your deck's contents is critical.

Really loving this since I played a pre-release version at DragonCon. Now working on serious strategies.

Genius! Great compilation of role selection, deck building, empire/civ building, and space! Very cool and streamlined! This varies from the solitaire feel when you really fight for the Tech cards. Seth Jaffee does it again, with Gavan Brown and others doing the graphics and artwork. I really really really like and enjoy this game !! Good vanilla, and with expansion.

Plays great as a 2 player game, but it does better with 3 or 4. The Bonus Planets are cool. I haven't played with the victory promo, but I will most definitely try it out when I can obtain one.

I prefer Eminent Domain over San Juan, and Race for the Galaxy. I love Eminent Domain as much as I love Glory to Rome, and 51st State.

While this game will be compared to Dominion and Race for the Galaxy, it's truly its own game. It also looks gorgeous.

Update: After a dozen plays I'm loving the game even more. I even played against Dr. Mayhem at BGGCon 2011!

It keeps growing on me. The strategy is very subtle and I love how it's a role selection game with deck building component.

Saying this game is "Race for the Galaxy meets Dominion" is accurate but undervalues it's worth. Eminent Domain is a strong, elegant game that stands on its own. I might still play Dominion, but I will never play Race over Eminent Domain.

Eminent Domain is direct. The ease of play and limited choices help focus your strategy without clogging it up with too many choices, too many icons, or too much text. My favorite deck builder. Eminent D6 Solitaire
