So I got my copy of Dominion today and took great pleasure in sorting out all the cards.

I was however, slightly confused by the randomiser cards.

I know that the kingdom cards are for you to create a random game, but why is there randomiser cards for all the treasures and victory cards?

Just as a quick note, you're much more likely to get a helpful response by posting this thread over in the Dominion forums: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/forums/thing/36218/dominion

But to answer your question, they don't really serve a purpose. The original intention was to use the randomizer cards to mark those piles as empty if/when they ran out, but the vast majority of players don't actually do that. You can find more information in this thread: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/6702497 and this thread: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/4829971

Because they aren't randomiser cards?

Ok thanks.

They are classed as randomiser cards though. They have the same colour backing as the kingdom randomiser cards, and the booklet says there are 32 of them, which, if I include these, I have.

Having checked the above threads I see they were for marking empty piles. Thanks folks.

Fixed.

In my set, the placeholder card backs are the same as randomizer card backs.
