Board Game: Dominion: Menagerie
Designer Donald X. Vaccarino and publisher Rio Grande Games have another Dominion expansion coming your way, with Dominion: Menagerie due out in March 2020. In case you're still trying to decide how to store everything Dominion related in one place, you should probably dedicate a rolling suitcase to the game line because then you can buy matching carry-ons for future releases before you bust the zip.

As for what you'll find in the box, here's the anticipated Donald X. intro, followed by a few gameplay teasers:
Quote:
Dominion, that's what you're trying to achieve. This time with animals! They each have a lesson to teach, whether it's how to spit really far or what kind of grass tastes the best. It's a lot to keep track of, but you're like an elephant: you remember everything. And you're afraid of mice. You've taken up riding. Horses are intimidating; they say you can lead a horse to water, but you haven't managed it, so you're working your way up, starting with dogs. So far so good; the dog hasn't bucked you off yet. Your menagerie got off to a poor start, with just a goat, two rats, and the advisor who suggested starting a menagerie. You couldn't get that fox you wanted, but it was probably bad anyway. Now you've got some camels, which are just as useless for sewing as you'd been warned, and a turtle that can hold its breath for longer than anyone can stay interested. Soon the animal kingdom will be yours.

Dominion: Menagerie, the 13th expansion to Dominion, has 400 cards, with thirty new Kingdom cards. There are Horses that save a draw for later, Exile mats that cards can be sent to and rescued from, and Ways that give Actions another option. Events return.
