The idea is that I would re do all the expansions, with different pictures and card titles but same effect of card. I would start with the base game, it would be Dominion : Vampires & Lycans.

Then from instead of Intrigue it would be Dragons & Dinosaurs, etc.

Every card still does the same effect but the theme goes from medieval to monsters. What do you think?

Neat idea. Sounds like a lot of work.

Good luck!

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

I think life is far too short. You have Acension if you want monsters. Reskinning all of dominion... hell no.

I was skeptical but looking at your version of the first set, I like it. Some thoughts on card names:

- Most of the theming is good, but some doesn't make sense to me, especially Vampire Hunter, Great Battle and Killing Moment. Can I ask about the thinking behind those?

- Why is Vampire Spy the new name for Thief, instead of for Spy?

- You may want to look ahead to other sets so that you can theme cards consistently. For instance, Village ("Blood Frenzy") is going to show up in slightly different versions in many other sets. Maybe just call it "Frenzy" so that all the similar (+2 actions, +1 card) cards can be different types of Frenzy? I guess you could still call them [Whatever] Frenzy even if the card they refer back to is Blood Frenzy.

Didn't I read about something called "Zombinion" somewhere? Also, like someone already mentioned, there are few commercially produced games that more or less traffic in this idea. Nightfall and Thunderstone come to mind, after the previously mentioned Ascension.


Edit: Ah- Here we go:
