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.

Adds new treasures, more expensive victory cards, and treasures that do interesting things.

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.

Played 10-15 times.

Great expansion. I can see why people rave about the Platinum and the Colony, but I also really like the Treasures with effects on them.

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.
