I'm not a Dominion player. How does this differ from the base game?

In short, it's the base game (or Intrigue) without all the kingdom cards. It's not playable by itself, but you can combine any set of kingdom cards with it. It's useful if you do not have either base game or Intrigue (only these two sets have the base cards) but just want to play any of the expansion. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of replacement cards.

This is just money and victory cards. These cards are only included in the base set and Intrigue. So if you only want to play say Seaside, you’d have to buy this as well.

In short, you can use this cards to play with an expansion set only.

Even if you have a Dominion or Intrigue, you might still want these cards because they feature "full artwork" rather than just numbers (the money, lands, and curse cards, for example, were seen by some as being pretty boring).

I bought these, but I actually find I prefer the ORIGINAL cards. YMMV.

Another benefit to having these cards is that you can have multiple groups playing from the same base set.

IMHO, these cards are much, much more attractive (obviously) but lose just a little bit of functionality. It's easy to tell the values of the original cards at a glance, the new ones a split second longer. Now, it may just be because I haven't played with them nearly as much.

Personally, I love the new artwork and I'm glad I bought the new base cards.

I plan to use them as "holders" or as backs in a sleeve to place printed fan cards in front of. Unless I really like the new art then i'll swap out the old for the same purpose
