So I was able to find a used copy of Dominion at the Goodwill for $4. It looks pristine but I don't want to count all the cards.Are there particular cards I should ensure are in there before playing the first time? I've never played.

thanks

Just make sure you have 10 copies of each of the cards you chose to use.

the game will work fine even if your missing a few.
If you have that little insert between the two rows of cards you have a list of every card.

If you are missing an entire set of a card you may want to see what your options are to get those
you NEED copper silver and gold and point cards, which you can buy separate if need be ($10 or so I think)
You want at least 10 of each action card, it comes with 11 but one has a different back but considering I played with that one with the rest for quite a while I think you'd be fine if your using it as a replacement card

All in all I think if your short a few it wont change the game too much. Ask again if you find your missing all the "market" cards or something

You may even be lucky and it might have some cards with blank faces you could use to make proxy cards.

great pickup for $4, hope your group likes it as much as mine

Nice find!

The treasure cards are going to be ok if there are a few missing. The victory cards (Provinces, Duchies, and Gardens) should have 12 of each, but if you only ever play two-player, you only need 8. Those are the most important. All of the other kingdom cards (those are the small sets of cards that provide the unique setup each time) should have 10. If you don't want to count them all right now, just count each one as you put it back in the box. I actually do this every single time I clean up, because a card occasionally gets put into the wrong pile. There should be 30 curses, but that only matters if you're playing with 4 people.

if your set is missing only the following 6 cards:
Adventurer
Chancellor
Feast
Spy
Thief
Woodcutter

Then you got some weird, "limbo edition" that's between 1st edition and 2nd edition


If you want to check the card list, the rulebook should list it. The community wiki on BGG also lists the below (click on the Community Wiki header to expand it:
