I think the Dominion style mechanic could be easily put into a sports themed game. I think sports + Dominion mechanic is a natural.

For example, in American football, there are only 5 ways to score:

Touchdown - 6 points
Extra point - 1 point
Two point coversion - 2 points
Safety - 2 points
Field Goal - 3 points

this could easily be the equivalent of the Duchy, Estate, etc.

What about you? Do you have any ideas for a sports-themed Dominion-like game?

I'm the weirdo who purchased overtext solely for the purpose of stating that Kaffedrake's overtext makes me feel melancholy.

Interesting Idea. You're right that the scoring is similar. However, in team sports when the offense is attempting to score there is also a defense trying to stop the offense (which is generally lacking in the Dominion mechanic). For the analagy to work, it would make sense to be a two-player game or a team game AND the defense would need some abilities (cards? tokens?) that can be played to hinder the scoring.

Would I personally be interested? Probably not, but it sounds like a good creative endeavor.

Why not? But as there are already sports games and there is already Dominion, I would not be very interested.

Yes an interesting idea. I like the American Football theme but am struggling to see how it might work. Feels like it might be a bit limiting in the types/functions of the cards (but again haven't given this too much thought). But yes would be interested to see what this looked like.

Another "sports" alternate might be something like the Olympic's, (winter and/or summer - hey possibly an expansion here), where the goals are gold silver bronze medals (directly akin to Duchy, etc). Might allow for great variety given the number of different sports.
