A spirit tormented by board games must have used its Diet Pepsi breath to take over my desire, because, for the past two weeks, I have been consumed by the need to play the tabletop version of Dominion, the feudal-style deck-builder. I love coming up with bite-sized strategies for its 30-minute rounds, and I’m enthused about the 2017 Nocturne expansion I recently picked up, but I’ve also come to realize that I have at least five suggestions for cards I wish existed. Here—let me share them with you.
With my suggestions, I’m hoping to address a problem I have with Dominion, the agreed-upon origin of the deck-building genre, in which players amass currency to accumulate land.
