Are you new to Dominion? Are you excited about the prospect of getting better?
Here’s a couple of resources to get you started:
Goko PlayDominion: the main place online to play Dominion.
CouncilRoom: where we analyze game stats and logs
The Forum: all skill levels are welcome. Check out especially the Help! forum, where you can post an Isotropic game log and seek advice on what you did right or wrong, or the Rules forum, where you can get your rules questions answered.
Now, a lot of the articles on this site implicitly assume you play with all of the expansions mixed in. But here are a couple of articles targeted specifically at players new to the game, or those who only own the base set:
Your Guide to Beating Attacks: an excellent all-around strategy article, written by the game’s designer.
Building the First Game Engine: an article about the thinking process behind building an “engine”, using the “First Game” set as an example.
Guide to the Dominion Base Game: an overarching analysis of the basic strategies in the base game.
Building a +Actions/+Cards Engine: an analysis of one of the fundamental strategies in Dominion.
Big Money: what it is, and why it’s not unstoppable.
What expansion(s) should I get?: The perennial question.
Glossary: a repository of many common terms used on the blog and forum. Don’t be scared away by all the definitions: it’s intended as a reference, not as essential knowledge.
And one of the best parts of Dominion is coming up with your own cards:
A Dominion Fan Card Creation Guide: a comprehensive guide to some of the considerations and pitfalls in making Dominion cards.
