  1. Wow. This review just solidified how different my tastes are from most of your group. Dominion has the most bland boring terrible theme and art. Every deck builder I played after was more fun and thematic. Also you have almost no player interaction. So many 6s for this game. I don’t get why this continues to be so popular amongst better games. Anyhow I don’t mean to tell you your opinion is wrong but I can’t seem to understand how you like his games and then love mediocre theme dead games if theme is important to you.

    1. I disagree regarding the theme of Dominion, though I will concede my view (Patrick) on this point is in the minority. I agree regarding the art. For me, theme, while an enriching feature of a game is far less important than mechanics. While my co-hosts view theme as MUCH more important than I do, I like the puzzle of a game much more than the story of a game.

    2. Also you all hated on trains theme, atleast it has a theme! Dominion is the worst. The art in dominion is so boring and bland.

      1. Obviously, we view it differently. I felt that Dominion’s theme is more far scoping than Trains, but don’t feel it is themeless. As I said, I agree regarding the art. At the end of the day, I just have much more fun playing Dominion, and think it has richer and more engaging gameplay. So glad you enjoy Trains. Hope you enjoy the other games in the related line. Thanks for your thoughts and feedback.
