Finalists for the 2012 Kingdom Design Challenge

2012 Kingdom Design Challenge

These are the eleven Kingdoms that we selected to use in the Final of the 2012 Championships. These are outstanding Kingdoms highly recommended to anyone looking for a custom set game.  They have been designed to encourage divergent and competing strategies, and we’ve provided links to the Final and Bronze Match games so you can compare the paths you chose with the expert players.

(If you want to use these sets in a real-life game, feel free to make substitutions as needed depending on what expansions you own, like Village for Bazaar, Cellar for Warehouse, or Chapel for Remake.)

These sets are also available on  If you want to see all the entries, with the 35 candidate sets that made the final cut for consideration, as well as each designer’s comments on their set, click here.  And last year’s finalists are here.

After you’ve had a chance to think through the sets or try them out, don’t forget to vote for your favorite! Remember, the winner of your vote will receive a Dominion expansion of his or her choice, so go and support the creator of your favorite Kingdom!
