This review is from: Dominion Hinterlands (Toy)
At the time of me writing this Dominion: Hinterlands is the most recent expansion. Almost all of the cards have a good effect and will therefore be useful. What I mean is that in cornucopia there were a good deal of cards (horn of plenty, harvest) that are still in almost mint condition because nobody buys them when I put them on the table. The art I would say is not as good as cornucopias but it is better than say Intrigue or base.

Out of all the expansions I would rate it 3rd. With seaside being the best and prosperity after that. It gets its 3rd place ribbon because they did a really good job putting in effects that make for a more challenging game. These are cards that benefit mathematical analysis and a deep understanding of the game mechanics. Since a lot of the effects of Hinterlands cards operate around a vanilla effect when played and a special one time effect when gained it takes a good deal of thinking and card counting to make some of the strategies pay off.

bottom line is that I would recommend this expansion to people that really like Dominion and are experienced players that own most of the other sets. If you are new to dominion and want a good first expansion to build up from base I would recommend Dominion: Intrigue, Dominion: Seaside, Dominion: Prosperity.
