Boon

From DominionStrategy Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Boons, introduced in Nocturne, are small bonuses that may be useful to the player receiving them. They are bestowed by Fate cards.

The pile of Boons is shuffled, and when a Fate card instructs you to receive a Boon, you draw the next one and get whatever bonus it tells you, and return it to the Boon discard pile when you've resolved it. DruidDruid.jpg is an exception; it selects three Boons at the beginning of the game and gives access to only those three. When the Boon pile is exhausted, the discarded Boons are reshuffled.

Boons are not "cards"; any text referring to a "card" does not apply to Boons. However, for reference, the Boon effects are printed on cards in a landscape orientation with golden frames.

[edit] Official Rules

  • Boons are a face-down deck of cards that are revealed as needed.
  • The phrase "receive a Boon" means, turn over the top Boon, and follow the instructions on it.
  • If the Boons deck is empty, first shuffle the discarded Boons to reform the deck; you may also do this any time all Boons are in their discard pile.
  • Received Boons normally go to the Boons discard pile, but three (The Field's Gift, The Forest's Gift, and The River's Gift) go in front of a player until that turn's Clean-up.

[edit] Preparation

  • If any Kingdom cards being used have the Fate type, shuffle the Boons and put them near the Supply, and put the Will-o'-WispWill-o'-Wisp.jpg pile near the Supply also.

My gift for you today: a preview.

Nocturne has Boons. It's a deck of 12 landscape-style cards that give small beneficial effects. You play a card that says "receive a Boon" or some such, and turn over the top Boon and see what you get. You shuffle the cards when needed, they don't run out.
