Only the one game so far but this hasn't lived up to the uncontrollable power creep I was afraid of (at least within the context of the set itself). Not to say there aren't some hell powerful cards in the mix but I don't think any one of them is so good that you can't be comptetitive if you don't follow that particular in-game arms race. As always with Dominion there are a multitude of possibilities and strategies and no one right answer. I guess my only concern for future plays is whether one or two Prosperity cards mixed in with other set's ards will dominate. Still I'm pretty sure I'll be enjoying this one for years. Thanks DT Secret Santa 2010!

Definitely my favourite Dominion expansion so far. The action cards perhaps are not the most exciting so far but the Colonies and Platinum really adds the game a new feel.

A great expansion...or is it too great?

For those of you who thought Throne Room was too powerful with some other cards, steel yourselves for King's Court! And that's just the beginning.

It isn't just the Platinum and Colony cards that makes this larger than Dominion has ever been, it's the Special Effects Treasures, and it's the Victory Point Tokens.

There's a lot of fun to be had in this set, though I'm afraid there might be too many "must buy" cards (by that I mean, if they're in the mix, you need to get them or you can't compete).

I was thinking that Dominion could not get any better, but this expansion does make it better, because it gives you more (expensive) options to go for, which gives players more ways to win the game.

An almost perfect Dominion expansion. The new currency and victory cards make the game a whole new experience. I know you're not supposed to use them all the time, but I actually have a hard time finding a reason NOT to play with them. They are that much fun. The new kingdom cards add ways to make copper work as well as new ways to get rid of it more efficiently. One of the best things about the new cards is the plethora of new ways to earn victory points outside of buying provinces. There is plenty of new player interaction and all of it just opens up so many more strategies for the game. An absolute must have expansion.

Lots of discussion as to whether the higher cost cards should have been added. Gone are the groans at getting seven. But I find that the higher priced cards lead to a whole new set of trouble!

Makes dominion and more fun with more disparity.

The problem is with Prosperity, it now allows people of different playing skills where newer and not as good players can get smoked while allowing really good players to pull away from better than average players.

This is probably the best expansion ever in terms of what it does for the base game.

Probably my favorite of the Dominion expansions so far. I love the extra dimension the Colony and Platinum cards add to the game.

Since I mix all of the Dominion decks together when I play, I record all of my plays under the Dominion base game.

Played twice at Gencon. What can I say about an expansion that forces you, with 8 money in hand, to decide if you REALLY want that province or if there isn't really a better buy out there. It totally makes you rethink the way you play.

In my opinion, of all the expansions this is the closest in feel to the original base game. It feels like everything was escalated. This is fine by me, but one can't help but think of how Magic suffered from power inflation. I fear that on its own it runs into a problem with a potential energy barrier. As everything is so expensive it can be tough to reach the breaking point, but when you do it all becomes too active all at once and those left behind are WAAAY behind.

That said these cards look to mix nicely with the rest of the system.

I've been on this site for 10 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I am, to some degree, sick of learning too many new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.

[4 plays] Please note that I no longer record unique plays for this set - all of its cards are available in my standard Dominion kit containing all expansions.

Flat out the best expansion of them all. It will be very rare to play the game again without including Colonies and Platinum. The new action and treasure cards are great too. This is wonderful fun.

Most recent plays 10-23-10 with Garrett.

Best expansion so far. Several very interesting cards with very few "never play with that again" cards, unlike the previous 3 expansions (and the base game) which are full of crappy attacks/actions that don't deserve to hit the table.

I am once again stunned by how well the new cards integrate with the existing decks. And yet how much difference they put into gameplay adding further depth to an already deep game. Only letdown is that some cards might be a little too dependent on "luck of the draw". It always sucks to have less than five cards on the draw pile, when you know that among the next 1-4 cards is (one of your) countin houses or to hav a kings court as the only action. Sometimes you have to let cards be wasted but they are a little too expensive for this sort of "poker".

Although some of the cards in a random set up of all decks can make the strategies seem completely unbalanced in favor of specific prosperity cards, I am finding this set to be my favorite Dominion release. The new treasures, colonies, and platinums invigorate the game and increase the number of methods to a winning strategy.

After a weak Alchemy expansion, this is a wonderful return to form for the series. The race aspect of it all has been greatly improved with the addition of colonies and other ways to get victory points.

This was the first set I playtested after Valerie asked me to be a lead playtester. Shortly after that, it was done. Then the whole Alchemy thing happened. Then this set went back into playtesting so Donald could tweak some things. The point here, I guess, is that I like this set for a reason that almost certainly doesn't apply to you.

And I like it for the more traditional reasons, too. Platinum/Colony is fun. We now have cards that cost 7 ("10 is the new 7!"), as well as a Reaction card that reacts to something other than an Attack. And, perhaps my favorite part of the set, there are Treasures that do stuff. Who needs Actions when you have things like Royal Seal and Venture?

The best expansion so far, by a clear margin. Especially since with the Colonies the game isn't just about racing for the Provinces anymore. The kingdom card set is very coherent and concise, with simple effects that do not induce AP; Only the Bishop and Goons are a bit more complex, but that is understandable since they are the huge VP generators.

Introduces 7-cost cards, the 9-cost Platinum (5 money), and the 11-cost Colony (10 VP). Also includes 8 new Treasure cards and 1 new Reaction card.

Includes ten more useless cardboard tiles that do not fit in the box. The RGG box is really ugly, especially with the "this is an expansion" blurb in the middle of the cover.
