If you've got the rules, go ahead and read them. Then play. (It won't bite. ) On the last page of the rules are some recommended sets to start with. Try the "First Game" set for your first game. It's a good intro. Come back here and post questions if you hit any.

As far as I can remember the rulebook has a listing of contents. I'd go through your cards and verify which ones you have. One thing this game has going for it (particularly applicable to your situation) is that you only play with about half the cards in any given game. So even if you're missing a few, you still shouldn't have any trouble getting a game going.

As has been said already- read through the rules, decide which decks you want to play with (the "starter" set up is probably your best choice, assuming you have all of them) and just start playing. It's a very easy game to learn, and tons of fun. My first two games were two-player. We took about 35 minutes on the first as we tried to absorb the new rules. By the end of that game we were pretty much flying through the rounds, and our second game took about 15 minutes.

Let us know how it goes. By the way, just out of curiosity, how much did you pay? Not that it's any of my business really.

Personally I would agree... Play! Use the rules and the first game suggestion found there in the rules to play a couple of games. Dominion is one of those games that once you get the turn flow / mechanic down it becomes second nature. One thing I really enjoy about it is that the game is simple to pick up and then becomes more about strategy and card combos than about the step by step mechanics. If you find you like it then I'm sure there are several resources here on the geek to make up for a lack of storage. First thing I think I would do is go through the rules and check the contents to make sure that you have all the cards / pieces. Then I would look at tuckboxes or some storage. Other than that you're all set! Enjoy!

Actually there are a bunch of very good videos right here on the Geek that give you the basis of how the game is played. Watch a couple of those and see how it's played. Then use the rules (or the forum) to answer any further questions you have. I still say reading the rules is best but you may get away with not reading the rules this way.

Buy an expansion before you are bored of the initial set.

How could I post an offer to buy a used original Dominion box for my game?

If you end up buying the expansions, you'll have enough boxes, methinks. I can understanding wanting the box for as a completionist myself, however... There might be someone out there willing to part with it.

Here's a link to the spare parts resource list:
http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/62260/2011-spare-parts-res...
You can go there and post a request under the listing for Dominion. Make sure you follow the rules for posting requests.


Or you could try posting a new general thread on the game page itself. Frankly though, I'm a little skeptical that anyone who owns the game is going to be willing to get rid of just the box. Then again, you never know what kinds of crazy things you might find lurking in people's collections. All I know for sure is that I, for one, would be hard pressed to think of a good reason to part with just the box.

Actually, for Dominion, that could be fairly common. seems like a lot of people make custom boxes to hold all the cards from all the expansions, so they might not care about the original box.
