A classic for a reason, Dominion arguably kick-started the trend of engine building card games with its release in 2008. Putting you in the soft-leather boots of a regent, you are charged with gathering the most victory points through the building of your castle. This sees you installing moats, remodelling, and earning extra actions per turn. However, the true fun starts when you break out some of the game’s wealth of expansions. These let your group cherry pick the cards and sets that bolster the elements in the game you most enjoy. This can lead to direct conflict, ornate ploys for trades, or summon spirits to suit your friends. Seamless, highly customisable fun.
