Dominion 2nd Edition | Shelfside Review
Okay, yeah, yeah, call me a monster, but in high school with my limited money, I decided to buy all these Bsg expansions instead of the minion expansions and it worked out pretty okay for me. Anyways, the six 7u cards have continued to make games of this base set of Dominion feel fresh for me, which really shows you how much I love the formula of Dominion. Maybe this review is that extra push I needed to start buying expansions to expand my Dominion experience

Totally agree with Dominion and Pandemic Legacy!
Really Pandemic in general for sure.
Stone Age for Worker Placement...
Yhazee, and Chess if you count it. Both foundational to many other great games these days.
Dominion Review
Final Score: 4.5 Stars – The grand daddy of deck building games is till a lot of fun, even after all these years.

Dominion - Rio Grande Games
Winner of the Spiel des Jahres in 2008 and many other awards, Dominion has established itself as a true classic. With more than a dozen expansions currently available, players will always be able to find new challenges.

Board Game Reviews: Dominion
Ultimately, Dominion is a fantastic game that should belong in anyone’s collection. Dominion is essential for serious and casual gamers but is also for people who want a fun, easy game to pull out every once in a while with some family or friends. I’ll say it again that Dominion gets a 10 out of 10 because it is excellent

All of Catan, Carcassonne, Dominion, Dune, Star Realms, Hero Realms, Epic Card Game and Red Dragon Inn is currently in progress. After that it will be Star Trek Ascendancy and Twilight imperium.
(My sibling and I always do the set-up for games, so I think if set-up is too complex or time-consuming, they will not play.). \-One other consideration is English is not their first language so any cards that involves too much reading is a little tricky (ie, we got the Exploding Kitten expansion, and they have trouble with the subtleties of the differences of a lot of the new cards). Same with some of the text on Dominion cards. **Genre:**.
Games I Own and Like: In this genre I've enjoyed Ticket to Ride Europe (which I don't own but have access too), Quacks of Quedlinburg, King of Tokyo, Dominion, Cryptid, Barenpark and Sushi Go. I also very much enjoy 7 Wonders Duel, Race for the Galaxy, Shotten Totten 2, and to a lesser extent Star Realms (just cause I'm bad at it though not cause it's a bad game). Games I Dislike and Don't Play: Pandemic (feels too much like a single player game 4 people are playing, I liked other coops like Hogwarts Battles and Codenames: Duet).
I have played sooo much Dominion (over 3000 online games) and was completely obsessed with it in the past. Its an amazing and incredibly influential game. I can't honestly recommend it for purchase though, simply because it plays better with the more expansions you have and they are A) expensive and B) bulky.
For simple deck builders I would recommend Dominion, Ascension, or Shards of Infinity.
