Dominion: Intrigue adds rules for playing with up to 8 players at two tables or for playing a single game with up to 6 players. This game adds 25 new Kingdom cards and a complete set of Treasure and Victory cards. The game can be played alone by players experienced with Dominion or with the basic game of Dominion.

Dominion Intrigue is both a stand-alone game and an expansion for the original "Dominion" game published in 2008. Fans of the dominion core game will be right at home with this new set as the cards follow the established format. The only "new" rules are clarifications of common sense practices players would naturally intuit. The game is also a stand-alone set with all the required treasure and victory cards.

Game play is straight forward. Players start with identical 10 card decks. They add to their deck by buying and stealing cards from the central pool and from other players. Game play is a balance of building the necessary resources to purchase victory points, defending against the strategies of other players, and balancing the need to accumulate the highest victory point total with the fact that cards you buy in "intrigue" often end up in another player's deck

What you get:
1. 250+ cards including 25 entirely new kingdom cards and a full compliment of coins, curses, victory points, and randomizer cards.
2. Card organizer.
3. Rule book.

The Intrigue box can accommodate between 2-4 players, though that number can be increased with the combination of other sets. There is no moderator and every player starts the game with the exact same cards and access to the exact same resources.

For those familiar with the Dominion core game, at first glance "Dominion Intrigue" looks fairly straightforward. This is however not the case. The intrigue set is more interactive than the core set, constantly requiring the players to make value based decisions. The feel of these cards is very group oriented.

Format: Toy
This is a standalone expansion to Dominion. Meaning you can buy it buy itself and play the game without needing anything else. That said, I'd suggest buying the base set first and later working up to this. With both sets, you can play the game as 2-6 player. Normally one set is only enough for 4 player. The box actually says the game can be played with 8 people but in reality the "rules" for 7 or 8 player games are to divide up into 2 different games. I'd hardly call that an 8 player game. So when I tell people about Dominion I tell them it is 2-4 player normally, 2-6 if you have both sets.

This expansion plays just like the original only with 25 new kingdom cards. Some of these cards are far different than anything in the base set. Some have more utility (AKA more choices) so I'd consider Intrigue to be slightly more "complicated" which is why I'd suggest buying the base set first.

There are a few new types of cards. One are Victory/Actions or Victory/Treasure cards. These are victory point cards that are not just dead cards in your hand during the game. The problem is these hybrid cards are expensive (Nobles and Harems for example cost 6 coin each and are only worth 2 victory points).

Another type of card that is new are the "or" cards. These are cards that have multiple abilities but you must choose which ones to use. Maybe you want +3 cards from your Noble one turn and +2 actions another. You cannot get both +3 cards and +2 actions off of one Noble card though.

Intrigue has a lot more "interaction" than the base set. This means more messing with other peoples' decks and hands. It did add a new reaction card (similar to Moat from the base set) but it works differently but does a good job dealing with some of these new attack actions.

Other reviewers have done a great job praising Intrigue, and rightfully so. It is a great expansion to one of the best games out there. Like others have said, you can play Intrigue with or without the original Dominion game, but consumers would be wise to start with the first. Having both sets also allows up to 6 people to play at a time (compared to a max of 4 with only one set). While the manufacturer still recommends 2-4 players, I've found 6 player games to be enjoyable.

In addition to doubling the original game's supply of treasure, curse, and victory cards, Intrigue brings 25 new kingdom cards to the fold. Here are some highlights:

Great Hall, Nobles, and Harem --
These ACTION - VICTORY CARDS are playable during the game AND they are worth VICTORY POINTS at the end. Rather than just taking up space in your deck like standard victory cards (Estate, Duchy, and Province), these multi-purpose kingdom cards actually contribute to the action phase of your turn. I love playing with at least one, if not more of these cards in the supplies.

Saboteur and Swindler --
These ACTION - ATTACK CARDS each force other players to trash a card. Swindler forces players to simply trash the top card of their deck, so it's entirely random what they'll end up losing. With Saboteur, the trashed card needs to be worth at least 3 coins, so no matter what card ends up being trashed, it will hurt the players affected.

Pawn, Steward, and Minion --
These ACTION (and in the case of Minion, ATTACK) CARDS each provide options for the player using them during their turn.
