Buy Dominion - Renaissance

 

Reviews

“This is what I want Dominion to be. I like the Projects. Citadels - it costs eight. You can buy a province for eight! Is it worth giving up a Province to be able to double play actions for the rest of the game? Hint: Yes!”
Dice Tower

“I don't think there's any other set that has as good two cost cards... like that Border Guard. It gives you an Artifact. There's a dynamic there that you can only do with these Artifacts that get passed around.”
The Thoughtful Gamer

About This Content






Renaissance is the twelfth expansion to Dominion. It includes twenty-five new Kingdom cards. There are tokens that let you save coins and actions for later, Projects that grant abilities, and Artifacts to fight over.

It’s a momentous time. Art has been revolutionized by the invention of “perspective,” and also of “funding.” A picture used to be worth a dozen or so words; these new ones are more like a hundred. Oil paintings have gotten so realistic that you’ve hired an artist to do a portrait of you each morning, so you can make sure your hair is good. Busts have gotten better too; no more stopping at the shoulders, they go all the way to the ground.

Science and medicine have advanced; there’s no more superstition, now they know the perfect number of leeches to apply for each ailment. You have a clock accurate to within an hour, and a calendar accurate to within a week. Your physician heals himself, and your barber cuts his own hair. This is truly a golden age.

Mechanics


Renaissance includes some firsts for Dominion such as a Reaction that reacts to being revealed, ways to play Actions during the Buy phase, even a way to keep playing after the game has ended.
