[edit] Flavor text

The world is big and your kingdom gigantic. It's no longer a kingdom really; it's an empire. Which makes you the emperor. This entitles you to a better chair, plus you can name a salad after yourself. It's not easy being emperor. The day starts early, when you light the sacred flame; then it's hours of committee meetings, trying to establish exactly why the sacred flame keeps going out. Sometimes your armies take over a continent and you just have no idea where to put it. And there's the risk of assassination; you have a food taster, who tastes anything before you eat it, and a dagger tester, who gets stabbed by anything before it stabs you. You've taken to staying at home whenever it's the Ides of anything. Still overall it's a great job. You wouldn't trade it for the world - especially given how much of the world you already have.

[edit] Impact

Empires was the first "normal-sized" 300-card set since Hinterlands, and yet managed to introduce the most unique cards (and card-like objects) of any set until then, due to Split piles, Events and Landmarks. This, along with its heavy theme of D and VP tokens, makes it probably the most complex set released in Dominion. As Adventures before it was intended as a Seaside sequel, Empires acts a Prosperity sequel, and like its predecessor, offers a great deal of tools for engines and Alt-VP strategies.

Like the increasingly complex sets that came before it, Empires broke new ground in terms of card effects and properties, such as a few new costs (including a $10 and a $14), a Duration that stays out for three turns, a card that returns you to your Action phase from your Buy phase, a handsize attack that makes you discard down to 2 cards in hand, an Attack that changes how your opponents' cards work, a way to prevent yourself from being able to buy anything for the rest of the game, a way to bid, sources of negative VP other than CursesCurse.jpg, and the first Action-Treasure in the game.

[edit] Debt

The Debt mechanic allows players to buy certain cards and Events earlier than usual, while spreading the cost across future turns. This can shake up openings, though most of the Debt cards are not particularly useful early in the game. They are, however, almost all quite powerful in the mid- to late-game, and players ignore them at their peril.

[edit] Victory tokens

In Prosperity, VP tokens were introduced via three fairly simple cards, but there was still a fair amount of design space left to use with them. Empires takes the idea and runs with it, with almost half the set using VP tokens in one way or another. These cards give players many more options to victory other than simply working towards ProvincesProvince.jpg, adding much more variety to the game than the simple addition of more Kingdom cards.

[edit] Split piles

While the idea of more than one different card in a pile is not new, having been used in Dark Ages, the Knights and Ruins piles were each essentially variations on a single theme. Split piles, with two completely different cards in a pile, adds a new dynamic to the game. Having only 5 copies of a potentially key card adds competition, particularly in games with more than 2 players, and having to get through half the pile before being able to access the typically more powerful bottom cards also livens things up.

[edit] Landmarks

Where Adventures added Events, buyable effects not tied to cards in your deck, Empires adds Landmarks, allowing new scoring rules to be added to the game. While some can be innocuous, simply adding a few VP here and there, others, in particular the penalizing Landmarks, can drastically affect gameplay, and how players choose to go about their strategies.

[edit] Engines

Empires adds quite a lot of cards and Events that are friendly to engines:

  • EngineerEngineer.jpg - gains engine components and can later remove itself
  • City QuarterCity Quarter.jpg - a powerful drawing village
  • OverlordOverlord.jpg - can emulate most engine pieces, and can be acquired early
  • Royal BlacksmithRoyal Blacksmith.jpg - the most powerful static terminal draw in the game
  • EncampmentEncampment.jpg - an incredibly cheap Lost CityLost City.jpg
  • PatricianPatrician.jpg - does well in high-cost engines
  • EmporiumEmporium.jpg - rewards engine building
  • Bustling VillageBustling Village.jpg - gives the highest consistent number of Actions of any village
  • Chariot RaceChariot Race.jpg - does well in high-cost engines
  • FortuneFortune.jpg - arguably the most powerful card in the game, able to double the $ output of an engine
  • SacrificeSacrifice.jpg - a powerful soft terminal trasher
  • TempleTemple.jpg - a good trasher that also gains VP
  • VillaVilla.jpg - allows for all sorts of engine shenanigans
  • ArchiveArchive.jpg - allows an engine to function with little to no trashing
  • CapitalCapital.jpg - allows the early purchasing of expensive engine pieces
  • CharmCharm.jpg - allows the gaining of multiple like-costed engine pieces, particularly ones costing D
  • CrownCrown.jpg - flexible, and allows for multiplying on more boards
  • GroundskeeperGroundskeeper.jpg - functions best within an engine
  • Wild HuntWild Hunt.jpg - decent draw that also gains VP
  • TriumphTriumph.jpg - rewards engines that gain many things per turn
  • DonateDonate.jpg - arguably the most powerful Event in the game, can get an engine going extremely quickly
  • AdvanceAdvance.jpg - allows the early gaining of expensive engine pieces
  • Salt the EarthSalt the Earth.jpg - allows a player that is ahead to end the game quickly
  • WindfallWindfall.jpg - rewards an engine that can draw your entire deck
  • DominateDominate.jpg - only realistically achievable with an engine
  • ColonnadeColonnade.jpg - rewards engines that rely on multiple copies of an Action
  • LabyrinthLabyrinth.jpg - rewards engines that gain more than one card per turn
  • OrchardOrchard.jpg - rewards engines with multiple copies of different Actions
  • TombTomb.jpg - rewards trashing, which is usually essential for an engine
  • TowerTower.jpg - rewards engines that three-pile
  • Triumphal ArchTriumphal Arch.jpg - rewards engines with multiple copies of different Actions

[edit] Big Money

Empires has a few Big Money enablers:

  • PlunderPlunder.jpg - can help a Big Money player get an extra edge in VP
  • CrownCrown.jpg - having $5 in your hand instead of $6 means you have to forgo GoldGold.jpg, but CrownCrown.jpg is never a bad buy for Big Money.
  • LegionaryLegionary.jpg - a brutal Attack that rewards you for having GoldGold.jpg
  • DelveDelve.jpg - makes SilverSilver.jpg easier to get
  • WeddingWedding.jpg - makes Gold easier to get
  • ConquestConquest.jpg - rewards you for getting Silver
  • AqueductAqueduct.jpg - rewards gaining lots of Silver and Gold, then greening early
  • FountainFountain.jpg - rewards having extra CopperCopper.jpg
  • PalacePalace.jpg - rewards having extra Silver and Gold

However, Empires also has a couple Landmarks that actively penalize Big Money strategies:

  • Bandit FortBandit Fort.jpg - penalizes having Silver and Gold
  • WallWall.jpg - penalizes bloated decks that don't trash

[edit] Theme

Empires is in some respects conceived as a sequel to Prosperity and shares many of the same structural themes: like Prosperity, it includes Victory tokens, a large number of Kingdom Treasure cards, several relatively expensive cards, and relatively few Attack cards.

There are also 13 Events:

There are also 21 Landmarks:

[edit] Trivia

Donald X. stated a couple weeks before release that Empires has a Roman flavor in terms of theme. It was the first set to be released in the second edition layout style.

[edit] In other languages

  • Dutch: Keizerrijken
  • Finnish: Keisarikunta (lit. Empire - singular)
  • German: Empires
  • Japanese: 帝国 (pron. teikoku)
  • Polish: Imperium (lit. Empire - singular)
  • Russian: Империи (pron. impyerii)

There are currently no plans to release Empires in French, despite there being French translations for every previous set.

[edit] Pre-teaser

A couple days before the teaser (which itself would come a couple days before actual previews), Donald X. dropped some news on changes in layout of cards.

Well this is unprecedented, but I'm not made of stone. Here are some spoilers about card layout.
  • A bigger font is used on cards that don't have lots of text.
  • "They" is used instead of "he."
  • +'s in the body of text are now in bold.
  • Card texts are more carefully centered than ever before.

[edit] Teasers

Dominion: Empires has:

[edit] Secret history

One evening on a vacation, I paced around, the only one awake, thinking about what the future could possibly hold for Dominion. Was there anything great left to do? I jotted down some notes, then typed it all up when I got home.

Of the stuff I came up with, a few things went together, to make a kind of Prosperity sequel. It would have more VP tokens, those seemed like they had a lot more life in them than just those 3 Prosperity cards. Some "bonus" cards of some sort would award VP at the end of the game, like Kingdom Builder scoring methods. There would be giant expensive cards that you could pay for later. There would be cards that effectively didn't cost a Buy to buy. Special treasures could be a focus again. And there were three or so other ideas that did not actually make it. I like to tell the whole story, but who knows, I might need that stuff someday. Anyway you can only fit so much stuff in an expansion.

Initially the big thing I wanted out of VP tokens was, cards you trash for VP based on the game state. So, they would count things that conventional Victory cards can't, like how many Actions you managed to get into play at once. So I tried several of those and well in the end there's Emporium (which just checks a threshold) and Triumph (an Event). The original concepts didn't work out, but there are a zillion ways to make VP in this set so it was not much of a loss. A key thing was to try to avoid "golden decks" - where you just make points every turn without pushing the game towards ending. So most of the VP token stuff is tied to gaining cards, or trashing cards, or will run out some other way.

I didn't try the "bonus" cards for a while. When I finally got to them, they initially didn't matter enough, but it was easy to make them matter more and that all worked out. I made more and more of them and in the end there are 21. It could have been 20 Landmarks, 12 Events, 2 blanks, but I had the extra cards so in they went.

I had Debt from the start (and it had been in the ideas file for years). The first version though was a word on cards, "Debt," that meant you didn't need the $ to buy the card, but went into Debt. The Debt tokens worked the same way as they do now. One day I thought of using a symbol, and the cards changed to things like "When you gain this during your turn, take [red coin with a 10 on it]." They were like that for a while, before finally I put the symbol into the cost. With Debt a significant concern was that you could just buy the card turn one, and if that was good it seemed like the game could be too scripted. So the big Debt cards always tried to not be good turn one, although it took a while to really get there. Originally the cards could all be bought with $0, and in the end some have $ costs too.

And cards that gave you +1 Buy when bought, I made a couple and then it seemed like, that was plenty.

One day Jeff Boschen complained that one of the Debt cards (an earlier version of City Quarter) was dominating games, that in particular you could always get all the copies you needed, even in a 2-player game. And I thought, hmmm, I could have piles that were only 5 cards. And then from there went immediately to, wait, 5 cards, then 5 of another card. And I tried some cards like that and it seemed pretty cool. You get to tie together the cards somehow. A big issue was making sure you would get through the top 5 often enough; not necessarily every game, but you know, not as some rare thing. So three are cheap cantrips, and Gladiator eats its own pile for you.

I had no plans to have any Duration cards in this set, then somehow tried one, and then a couple more. The original one didn't make it but there are two Duration cards. The objection all these years was the amount of rulebook space Duration cards took in Seaside, but in Adventures that rulebook space was small enough to not seem so bad to repeat.

Dominion is a medieval game; ancient Rome is not medieval. I remained wishy-washy on that issue, not quite wanting to go full-on ancient Rome. In the end the set is called Empires and has a bunch of Roman things. Roman empires were around for a while in various forms, extending into medieval times, so there.

Late in the going, Scott Colcord took it upon himself to get all of the recommended sets played. The recommended sets don't always get much attention and well these ones did make it to a table or two.

Empires started out as a kind of Prosperity sequel. And ended up as one; it has super-spendy cards (though you can pay for them later), more Treasures than other non-Prosperity sets, VP tokens, even a Treasure that makes $6 and an Event that gets you 15VP. One of Prosperity's less-obvious themes is player interaction; it ups the non-attack interaction to cope with having fewer attacks (which in turn was to make sure ColonyColony.jpg was reachable in enough games). Empires has that too. There are again only three attacks, but the 3 Gathering cards are all interactive, plus Chariot Race and Gladiator, plus Castles in that way VP piles can be; the split piles cause more competition for cards; and then some of the Events are interactive and many Landmarks are, and those don't even take up space in the usual 10 Kingdom cards.

I used every good Event idea that I had in Adventures. Still, why not try to make more? VP tokens helped a lot, and I ended up with 13 new Events.
