Dominion fans will be thrilled to know that Donald Vaccarino has added another expansion to his most-popular deck-building game, Dominion.

The world is big and your kingdom gigantic.  It’s no longer a kingdom really; it’s an empire.  Which makes you the emperor…

Dominion Empires is his newest addition and comes with 300 cards and 96 metal tokens.  There are cards you can buy now and pay for later, piles with two different cards, and Landmarks which add new ways to score.  Empires can be combine with any of the other Dominion expansions.

    New Game Arrival!
Castles Of Burgundy
The Card Game
Fans of the strategy board game, Castles of Burgundy will surely like Stefan Feld’s new card game format.

Castles of Burgundy: The Card Game, is a set collection game at it’s core.  The game is played over 5 rounds with 6 turns in each round. The object is to maximize victory points through strategic actions. Playing cards serve as “dice” that provide the possible actions players can make.  Will you trade or buy livestock, build city buildings or invest in scientific progress?  There are many paths to prosperity and prestige.

Castles of Burgundy: The Card Game has enough similarities to the board game version that it’s easy to pick up the rules. However, there are enough differences to make it a different game.
