Governor combines well with itself, and it gives you a couple of different strategies you can pursue with it.

This is my favorite promo mini expansion, not just for this game, but of all time. I just love the way this card works in the game. First of all, it's always good when a card adds interaction to Dominion, since that is something it sometimes lacks. I love how it thematically matches Puerto Rico (which it was created to celebrate.) It has just enough benefit to the player playing it to make it worthwhile, and also helps out everyone else. I especially like that it gives you the option how you want to use it, so you can select the method that will benefit you the most. Every game I've played with this card in the mix has been just a tiny notch better. Fun stuff, for only $5!

Easily the best promo card of them all. This has so much combo flexibility that it can be utilized in several types of decks.

Governor is a fine promotional expansion. It can be a lot of fun. However it can also often be a combo-unto-itself. Use it sparingly so as not to where out the potential fun of its power.

Easily the best and most interesting of the promo cards so far released (well, it was before Prince came out). A very powerful card, which leads to very quick games but still provides interesting strategic decisions. Difficult to ignore when it's on the board. And a very good tie-in to Puerto Rico as well, mechanically speaking.

This is one of the strongest cards in the entire game. It is also a fun card because not only does it give you a whole bunch of options, it also requires skill to get the optimal results AND at the same time it actively helps your opponents, so you need to really think about how to use it. Not sure why this was relegated to promo status as it is a great card. The only con to this card is that it like cards like Hunting Party, Grand Market and Ill-Gotten Gains, often becomes a race to see who can buy the most of them before the pile is empty. However, Governor is a much more fun card than those others mentioned.

My favourite promo card for Dominion. Is a reference to Puerto Rico and the card behaves in a similar fashion: everyone applies the benefit chosen while the owner receives a bonus. Can be very powerful and but can also help ruin other peoples decks (giving them silvers in a treasure rich game). Love the flexibility of the card, the possibilities and the artwork.

I have heard more than one reviewer say Thunderstone beats out Dominion. I like Thunderstone, but I have to respectfully disagree. Dominion plays so fast and smooth, even the first time, while Thunderstone felt like more of a slog at times mechanically by comparison.
