Dominion is a deck-building game created by Donald X. Vaccarino. Each player uses a separate deck of cards to which only he or she has access; players draw their hands from their own decks, not others’. During turns, players use their cards to perform various actions and purchase cards from a common pool of card stacks available to all players, including those that give them more actions, coins to purchase cards, and victory cards that are otherwise valueless during the game. At the end of the game, defined when certain common stacks are exhausted, the player with the highest number of victory points wins. The game has a light medieval theme, with card names that reference pre-industrial, monarchical, and feudal social structures.
The tournament will be played across 4 rounds with 3 or 4 players per board. Players score Tournament Points based on their finishing position in the game. The winner is the player who accumulates the most Tournament Points throughout the event.
The tournament shall be played using the base set only (this should not be confused with the Second Edition released in 2016). The rules of the game can be found here. For more detailed tournament format/rules, click here.
