Seriously, I say Seaside is the best expansion of them all, and most others say Prosperity. Those are definitely the 2 best.

If you're planning on getting all of them, then get them in order of release.

This. Also - of you're planning on getting them all, there is very little point in trying to determine what people think are the best ones, because:

1 they are all awesome
2 everyone has differnt opinions
3 everyone may have different tastes to you
4 they are all awesome

So why not buy them in some arbitrary order, such as order of release?

We wanna be free. We wanna be free to do what we wanna do. And we wanna play games. And we wanna have a good time. And that's what we're gonna do. We're gonna have a good time; We're gonna have a party...

Or try some other arbitrary order, such as Top Geek Rating:
1 - Prosperity
2 - Seaside
3 - Intrigue
4 - Cornucopia
5 - Hinterlands
6 - Alchemy
7 - Promos

Or by Top Average Rating:
1 - Prosperity
2 - Hinterlands
3 - Seaside
4 - Cornucopia
5 - Intrigue
6 - Promos
7 - Alchemy

Edit: Oops - skip Intrigue. I didn't pay enough attention to the OP to see that it is already owned.

Yes it's really good. I just need a few more games with that expansion to decide how I rank it with the other big box expansions.

This is a commonly asked question. There is only one reply for a Dominion fan, in my opinion of course. All of them. Any one missing would be that little bit of their heart destroyed.

Quick story: My wife hates it when I buy anything, and the worst offender is board games which usually require a two hour to one month explanation for why that money would not have been better spent on cute sakura blossom merchandise from the local Jusco. But, when surreptitiously purchasing the expansions for this game, the only comment I received? "Oh, yeah... okay!" Now, every day she goes to the mailbox hopefully talking about receiving the one card that we do not have, "Walled Village".

So, really, once you play the question becomes moot. You *will* purchase them all. devil

Very good point by Freelance Police!

===============================

If I were re-purchasing, I'd get them in this order:

Seaside or Hinterlands
Prosperity
Seaside or Hinterlands
Cornucopia
Promos (only the ones that look good)
Alchemy (skip this expansion)

Interesting point. I hadn't of that before but that sounds right.
