Looking to up the ante? You can play solitaire all day long, but it just doesn’t get the juices flowing, now does it? The more pressure you have, the more adrenaline you release. The more adrenaline you have coursing through your veins, the more you feel a win. When you think you have your opponent on the ropes, and your heart is hammering so hard you think your carotid artery might explode out of your neck, THAT is when winning matters. That is when the dopamine release slams home euphoria as you hold off a surging opponent to take the winning Victory Points (or snatch victory from him just in the nick of time!). Ah, yes, there isn’t anything quite like winning a Dominion tournament – a game where it means something to take home the victory.

Dominion Tournaments & Leagues: Conclusion
It would be a good idea to play more than a few games prior to entering a Dominion league (and maybe a tournament also). But, once you have some experience under your belt, you will probably be able to hold your own. In fact, even if you get thoroughly thrashed, no one will be holding back in an officially-sanctioned Dominion tournament, so you will get to see the best strategies played out in real time. And, a thorough whipping teaches lessons one is not likely to soon forget.
So, get plugged into a community or start your own! Who knows, maybe you will be the World Master Dominion Champion crowned at Gen Con. Talk about adrenaline surges and dopamine rushes! And, don’t forget that DominionGame.info will be sponsoring online tournaments periodically with cash prizes (the revenue generated from advertising will be used as prize money!). Good luck, and happy gaming!
