Another brilliant pool of cards to add to Dominion games - most of these cards are relatively simple in effect, but by doing things directly when you buy or gain them (as opposed to having to wait another shuffle for you to actually play the card) a whole new dimension is added to the game. And many other cards that don't directly follow this principle also expand the strategy space (examples include Tunnel and Fool's Gold).

Terrific expansion. I can definitely see how this could have been the third "base" set. I'm glad though that it isn't.

This set provides a great deal of "combo" fun in the form of on buy/gain triggers. I also appreciate the extra presence of victory, treasure and reaction kingdom cards.

Been playing a ton on Isotropic and it's another fantastic addition. Seems to make the Big Money strategy a little more challenging and I'm a Big Money guy, so I appreciate having to sometimes change my approach. The entire series is an all-time classic.

May be my favorite Dominion expansion thus far. Lots of interesting cards, fun abilities.

Only downpoints are the lack of thematic consistency, and a couple of really busy cards (Robin Hood, whatever his name actually is, and the Jack of All Trades come to mind).

Lots of kooky new cards make for quite a variety of fun play. As I've come to expect, the cards in this expansion seem like they will be more entertaining with other expansion cards than with their own.

Dominion was a fantastic game and almost all of the expansions follow suit. The game has almost infinite play value and was the first of the deckbuilding genre of games. A fantastic play!

I think I've finally nailed down why Dominion works so well for me. It is a game where you are given a random setup and each player experiments with the different cards seeing who can discover the fastest route to victory. And, since the game is relatively short, you don't really get upset when you aren't the one to break the code, you just want to go again. As a result the key to keeping the game fresh is variety. That's why I love these expansions, they give me even more fresh game experiences and yet require very little additional learning. This particular expansion has some spectacular cards. I love some of the things it adds, particularly focusing on an aspect of the game you never thought about before (gaining cards.) The only downside I can see is that the focus on doing something different when gaining a card is definitely different and can be a bit hard to remember the first few times. However this change adds a new twist to the game and really combines well with cards from the other sets. Another great big-box expansion to one of my favorite games. Of course these kingdom cards will always be added into our random selection deck, and I'll be excited as they get drawn and add more variety to our game.

Hinterlands is Intrigue with the training wheels taken off.

We played an Intrigue/Hinterlands tableau that was COMPLETELY different than an all-Hinterlands one. The two games were entirely different gameplay experiences. In one, we had no trashing and severe discard-based hand manipulation. In the other, we had "trash a card for another card" which resulted in noticably longer tactical decisions. No more Dominion autopilot.

Funny that you mention "newtility". As an old Magic player, we called this "synchronicity" in which you built an entire deck around cards that "synergized" because they were *similar*. With Dominion -- noticably in the well-regarded Prosperity -- you also had similar cards (especially Colony and Plantinum). But with Prosperity, the game subtly changed when you had similar cards in the tableau. The setups became more *volatile* meaning the more expansions you had, the wilder the swing this tableau could be from the previous one.

IMO, The cards shouldn't be in a game because they're different. The cards should be in a game because they make *gameplay* different. Hinterlands does this well, although, again, I'd recommend it more for the players who like Intrigue more than the base game.

I was skeptical about the mechanical theme, but amazed by the playability of the cards when I tried it. An effect on the gaining of a card is a simple but amazingly versatile and impactful design tool.

This is my favorite expansion to Dominion so far. It adds a lot of really great reasons to actually build your deck, making it much less likely that the best strategy in a given game is just to hoard coins and end-run provinces.

Initial Rating: 9.5

Hinterlands is another fantastic addition, I think I like it a bit more than Cornucopia.

This expansion is more complex so it is geared for experienced players, the Dominion ecosystem is growing

I love to play Dominion with all the expansions in the mix.

A must buy for me and any Dominion Fan.

Great expansion! Great cards! Great fun! I think this has tied with Prosperity as my favorite expansion to date. I like the addition of cards that do something the moment they are gained. It catches other players off guard when you buy a card and suddenly they are collecting curses. Much better than what I feel was a letdown with Cornucopia.

Another great bunch of cards. I can rarely resist a Jack-of-all-Trades if it's out and Highway is always nice, especially with +buys. I dislike Fool's Gold, but mostly because I don't like to play it and then I let my opponent get them all and then I get crushed.
