Today Amazon is offering 3 Dominion Lightning Deals: Seaside, Prosperity, and Intrigue:

Dominion (base set) 2PM PST



Prosperity 4PM PST



Intrigue 5PM PST


Update: Amazon pulled the Dominion base game deal so I've removed it from the lineup above and updating the current times as shown.

Thanks for the heads up on this. Depending on the price, this may be the time I actually get a copy of Dominion.

I have Intrigue and Seaside. How relevant would it be for me to pick up the base game? Is it going to add much that I wouldn't already have with Intrigue? I find that a lot of the cards in Intrigue just feel like fancied up versions of the base counterpart.

I got Intrigues first and then I bought the base because A) I got it cheap, and B) there are some fun cards that weren't in Intrigue. Festival and Marketplace are some of my favorites from the base!

One of the biggest gripes about Dominion for many people is that you spend the entire game shuffling your cards.

That's disappointing, I was hoping for one on Alchemy since it's the only one I don't own. I know it's not supposed to be as good as others, but getting it for dirt cheap would still be great.

oh ok, I thought maybe for some reason kurt thought the more dominion expansions you had the larger your deck will be so will be harder to shuffle. which of course isn't the case (in general, some kingdom cards in some sets if being played with can result in larger decks being built)

in any case if anyone is missing any of the base and/or expansions going on sale, and the price is right for you, should bite... these are all good ones imho....

I doubt (though don't mind beign pleasantly surprised) any of the lightning deals will be dirt cheap... and unless you have prime you may need a filler to get free shipping (since these deals aren't coming up at same time all will have to be ordered separately... ie. I don't think you can combine to get the FSSS)

if you do end up needing a small filler check out...

Very useful site -- Just make sure the filler item isn't back-ordered. I noticed some of the really cheap filler items were not available for immediate shipping, which would have delayed my order until several weeks after Christmas. I'm guessing these "fillers" were in very high demand before the holidays

I think everyone in the gaming group already has Dominion and it's variety of expansions. As good as these deals could be, I see no sense in picking them up.

I have the base game only. If these lightning deals are any good, I may want to pick up an expansion, but I can only get one.

Which of the expansions is generally considered the best to pick up first?

Edit: Also, is there any point in having both the base game and Intrigue? Or is Intrigue (as a previous comment seemed to suggest) just a prettied up version of the base game with a couple/few new cards thrown in?

Seaside is good if you like cards that have lasting effects (Play card now, use it next turn).

Prosperity if you like lots of money.

Intrigue if you like choices (eg Draw 2 cards or add 2 to coin value). IMO Intrigue sounds better than it really is, especially if you're playing with newcomers who get overwhelmed by the choices.

while I don't play often with more than 4 of us, having both sets let's you play up to 6 players in the same game (as you need more basic treasure and victory cards)

and as others have said... all kingdom cards are different, intrigue does not duplicate any of base

Well, I've already looked at the ratings here on BGG. But they're just dry numbers to me. I'm more interested in hearing different opinions on why a particular expansion would be the best one to get first. And yes, I've been reading the comments on each of the expansions, but that's a bit like trying to take a drink from a firehose. Thanks for your input though.

your welcome, but not enough to get a thumb I guess

It also lets you play two games of up to four players each at the same time (instead of one six-player game), as long as you use different kingdom card sets.

If this were two years ago I'd agree. Lightning deals just ain't what they used to me. I'll be happy if it gets down to $25, but even that's iffy.

I've got my fingers crossed that Intrique and Seaside drop significantly.

Thanks for the heads up!
