Rio Grande Games to Release New ‘Dominion’ Expansion This Month

Coming soon to a Battleground Games & Hobbies near you later this month, Rio Grande Games has announce plans to release a new expansion for the popular deckbuilding game Dominion, called Dominion Adventures.



This is the ninth Dominion expansion. Supporting 2-4 players, Dominion Adventures can be played stand-alone or combined with other Dominion expansions. It contains 400 cards, 6 mats and 60 tokens, including 30 new Kingdom cards, with the return of Duration cards which trigger on future turns. In addition, Reserve cards, which can be saved for the right moment. There is also 20 Event cards that provide you something to buy besides cards, like tokens which modify cards.


Dominion Adventures is designed for ages 13+ with a approximate game play length of 30 minutes and a MSRP of $44.95.


Description of Dominion Adventures from the publisher:

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. You’re not sure which, but at least you’ve narrowed it down. You are rich with life experiences, but have had trouble trading them for goods and services. It’s time to seek your fortune, or anyone’s really, whoever’s is closest. To the west there’s a land of milk and honey, full of giant bees and monstrous cows. To the east, a land of eggs and licorice. To the north, treacherous swamps; to the south, loyal jungles. But all of them have been thoroughly pillaged. You’ve heard legends though of a fifth direction, as yet unspoiled, with its treasures conveniently gathered into troves. You have your sword and your trail mix, handed down from your father, and his father before him. You’ve recruited some recruits and hired some hirelings; you’ve shined your armor and distressed a damsel. You put up a sign saying “Gone Adventuring.” Then you put up another sign, saying “Beware of Dog,” in case people get any ideas. You’re ready. You saddle up your trusty steed, and head florst.”

Tasty Minstrel Games & Darwin Kastle to Release Cthulhu Game Based on ‘Star Realms’

First reported by hobby news website, Tasty Minstrel Games announced Cthulhu Realms, a deck building game designed by Darwin Kastle at a hobby industry-only show two weeks ago called GAMA in Los Vegas.
“It’s built on Darwin Kastle’s Star Realms engine,” said Daniel Hadlock of Tasty Minstrel, referring to the outer space deck building card game from White Wizard Games.  However, this deck building game is set in the realm of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu.

“The art takes a humorous horror approach, so it’s Cthulhu, but it’s got a family-friendly little twist to it,” said Hadlock.  “It has a little bit deeper, a little more tricky game play than an average deck builder game.”

The game is for 2-4 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 25-45 minutes.  MSRP is $19.95, release is tentatively set for Gen Con, but may be later in the year.
