Quick Takes: 2-4 players 30 minutes Ages 13+ (slightly more complex or takes longer than the classics we all think of)
We call these "New Classics." Like Catan, Dominion started a brand new genre of grown-up board games, and inspired a whole generation of game designers. Intrigue was the very first expansion to Dominion, quite a feat as the number of expansions today is 13! Meet the second expansion of the universe, Seaside.
Seaside adds 26 new Kingdom cards to the game along with 3 types of mats, Coin tokens, and Embargo tokens. It also introduces a new type of card, Duration, which can have an effect after your turn is over. Seaside is one of the most popular Dominion expansions out there (which is saying something, since 11 more followed it). It's a great expansion for players who have gotten the hang of Dominion basics and are ready to buy an expansion.
Note: You must have the core game Dominion to play. This is an expansion only and does not have all the cards needed to play a game.
- We love Dominion so much, we had to have it!
- Gateway game - a good entry point into more complicated board games, this game features a lot of new rules/game playing styles but is still approachable for newbies
