Dominion Abenteuer

Bonfire or Pilgrimage?


In the ninth expansion for Dominion, adventures are the theme, be in the Haunted Woods or in the Lost City, where we meet the Swamp Hag or a Bridge Troll or a Rat Catcher or even a Magpie or a Wine Merchant.

Of course, all those characters and locations bring with them new types of cards with new instructions and new terms. The Duration cards from Seaside return in Adventures, those cards are valid for the current turn and a later turn.

Traveller cards and Exchange cards are marked with an arrow, traveller cards can be swapped for another card; exchange cards are in play only 5x and not in supply, they are only used with Page and Peasant in play.

Events are yet another new type of card; each of the 20 events is only available once and the instructions on an event card are immediately implemented when the card is acquired.

Player markers are introduced into a game by either cards or events and their effects are once-only or permanent, and they are strictly limited to one marker of each kind for each player. New instruction terms are Exchange, Announce, Action Stock Supply, No-Point cards, Choose One, Check, Set Aside and In Play.

In total, the expansion features 400 cards, 48 round and 12 rectangular markers (that is, 10 markers per player) as well one Tavern Mat per player and as usual the rules offer suggestions for set of cards to use in a game, either stand-alone with only cards from the expansion or with cards from other editions.

Adventures is an extremely sophisticated expansion for the mechanisms in Dominion, the events especially change the feel of the game thoroughly. You must try it!
