From amazon's description:
Quote:
Contains the core Dominion card game and the expansions, Alchemy, and Prosperity. Additionally it contains the Black Market and Envoy promo card sets and a full color play mat.
Massive combination pack jammed full of the best boxed sets, additional cards and extras!


Just imho... Dominion and Prosperity is a very good combo... however we played Alchemy only once and now leave it out of the mix. The expansion it's missing that really needs to be in a combo like this is Seaside...

It's a pretty good deal, but I almost had to change my shorts when I saw that initially before I thought, "Sylvester, your wife is going to kill you when you hit purchase. Might want to think about an alibi first." ...and then I went to my FLOLGS

Dominion 28 bucks
Alchemy 20 bucks
propserity 28 bucks

76 bucks.

NOW, that doesn't include the playmat or the promo cards... but it still went from "worthy of the wrath" to "good, but I wouldn't die for it"

a pretty good deal only if you want Alchemy... if it was Seaside instead (and the incremental price difference) then it would indeed "jammed pack of the BEST"... sadly imho Alchemy is our least favorite so far

Due to Alchemy being the least favorite, I guess that's why it is in the bundle. How else will they move it? :)

yes, this is interesting! good and bad... I would have considered buying it, giving the girlfriend base and prosperity so she can have her own copies, and trade Alchemy... but this would defeat that thought (unless I wanted to try to trade just the Alchemy cards)...

... however I do wonder how the box insert looks... if enough individual places for every card from every expansion so far... so anyone w/pics let us know!

edit: also see Great sale at Amazon

Amazon has Seaside available separately for $25. Throw that in with these three for $60 and you have a nice deal.

Edit - Plus Free Shipping to boot!

If someone doesn't beat me to it, I should have my copy tomorrow at this time. I pulled the trigger this morning and paid the $3.99 next day ship charge with Prime.

I'm off Saturday so I wanted to expedite this process. I couldn't pass up this deal.

Please post pictures if you're able. I'd like to see what this "big box" looks like.

Very very interesting. I wonder what the capacity of the box is like... does it have room for the other expansions? Does it fit cards with sleeves on?

fwiw, I count 64 regular slots (ie. a regular kingdom card of 10 or 12), and 8 larger ones (for cooper, silver, etc) and then another 10 huge slots (where the cello wrapped decks of cards were stored)

have to go look up how many kingdom cards in each of base and each of the expansions so far

edit: ok, rough count... over 106 just regular kingdom cards (each 10)... see
Dominion_series

so it still looks like insert may have to be tossed... especially with another full size expansion likely

I don't think sleeved cards will fit - the standing sealed decks are in there tightly.

I'm guessing there is room for the expansions as all the decks included only take up a row and a half (note - I have not played Dominion and have not set the cards up for storage - I could be wrong).

One drawback to the expansions included in the set - nothing is labeled. Just sealed decks of cards and 6 rulebooks. The 2 rulebooks are for each set are the same color though.


Edit - Thanks Jeff!

That's nice that it is, in fact, one big box but holy poo is that box cover ugly.

I KNEW I shouldn't look.... I KNEW I shouldn't!

I resisted at the original price of $79, then again at $69...... but $59 was my breaking point. Amazon is evil this time of year, I keeps at you until you can not withstand the temptation.

I had already been fighting myself over smallworld at $29.99. I was winning that battle too. Then when I finally caved in and ordered the Dominion Big box combo, I figured I was already gonna have to face the music.. so I added smallworld into the order.

I figure when that big dominion box shows up... it won't make it any worse if a little (by comparison) smallworld box is with it.

I'm not entirely without sense though... I decided it was time to apply for that amazon visa card and get that $40 credit.... dropping that $89.98 total down to $49.98.

Not a fan of plus signs?

I guess the original Amazon listing does include the box top. I just thought it was a promotional picture.

I don't have the Prosperity set in my collection yet, but, looking at the box insert in the pictures, it seems they just took the individual expansion inserts and molded them together side by side.

I am so tempted to get this for $60, but then I have an extra base and Alchemy set. I suppose I might be able to trade them.

Good lord that is tempting...

I want to give the games away and keep the box

Does it have enough room for the Intrigue/Seaside cards as well?

Actually not sure about that. If you look at the photo of the contents the labels which comes with Dominion are there for all the sets. They are under the Rio Grande games catalog in the picture. My guess you put them over the big slots where all the cards are stored when the box is shipped.
Though I do wish they added a tiny bit more space to the box so you could sleeve all your cards.

Also, in case anyone is interested, if you buy the big box expansion if you look down the page on amazon, you can also buy the big box set + the remaining two sets (which are separate boxes) for a discounted price. For those who havent gotten into Dominion yet, this might be the way to go.
