Dominion Dark Ages Cards List

dominion dark ages cards listDominion Dark Ages is the eighth release in the Dominion game series. Dominion Dark Ages is an expansion-only set like Seaside, Alchemy, Prosperity, Cornucopia, and Hinterlands before it. It is not a stand-alone version, so you’ll need to have either the original Dominion game or Dominion Intrigue to play a game with the Dark Ages box set. If you haven’t acquired one of the first two games, do so before getting the Dark Ages expansion! (or, you can buy the base-cards-only pack that lets you play any expansion as a stand-alone game)

With each expansion release, new themes have been added to expand game play and further add complexity, strategic options and interactions, and power to the overall experience. Dark Ages is a huge expansion (500 total cards) that introduces terriffic new individual cards into the game.  It has 35 new Kingdom Cards and 2 other base-type cards (Ruins and Shelters).  Ruins are new detrimental cards (like Curses) that you give to other players, and Shelters are new cards that replace Estates.  With so many additions, this expansion again makes significant developments to the overall Dominion game, its complexity, and the strategic options available.

With such a large addition to the “Dominionverse,” several new themes come with this expansion. The central themes center around upgrading and the trash.  There are cards that perform various functions when they are trashed, cards that “care” about the trash, cards that upgrade themselves, and even ways to upgrade other cards.  Another theme filled out by this expansion is the ability to acquire certain cards only through specific other cards, which are used as intermediate step cards.

  • Likeabaws!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think you should remove the “Knights” card, (not the individual knights), because its not a card used in play and just used as a randomizer card.

      Likeabaws,
      Thanks for the feedback. I leave it due to the fact that it occasionally comes up on Goko and other places as a categorical card. Thanks for the feedback, though!

    As a history buff with some knowledge of the period I am a little saddened by the low view of the period these cards seem to imply. But I am a fan of dominion overall and a friend with whom i game will be getting this expansion sooner or later and as a gamer, if not as an amateur historian, I am looking forward to it
