Dominion is a deck-building game created by Donald X. Vaccarino and published by Rio Grande Games. Each player uses a separate deck of cards to which only they have 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.
Some have drawn parallels with collectible card games such as Magic: The Gathering, with the distinction that players build their decks ad hoc as the game proceeds. (Vaccarino, however, denies that Magic was the inspiration. Dominion is the first game of its kind, and has spawned a genre of similar card-based games, dubbed "deck-builders".Vaccarino developed Dominion with expansion sets in mind that introduced new mechanics atop the existing base set, opening the game to numerous variations of play.
