I got the newest set for Rio Grande Games long running board game franchise Dominion. Dominion: Nocturne is definitely not for beginners. A lot of the mechanics confused as as long term players until we actually played it.
The biggest change is a third phase after the action and but phase which is called night. In the action phase you can only play one action unless cards give additional actions. And in the buy phase you only have one buy unless an action gives you more buys. With the night phase, you can play all night cards. Which is a huge and interesting change.
Dominion: Nocturne also added positive boon cards and negative hex cards. I think both of these can be fun. Especially the boon cards.
We have only played it now for two nights, and only with itself. I’m very curious to see how it plays with other cards. I expect very well. It’s a fun set but I would get easier sets like Seaside, Dominion and Intrigue first. Reminds me the most of dark ages so far. It’s definitely fun and a great present from my wife Lanna.
