Expedition, an Event.

Events, introduced in AdventuresAdventures.jpg, and revisited in EmpiresEmpires.jpg and MenagerieMenagerie (expansion).jpg, are special on-buy effects not attached to cards; players can buy Events during their Buy phase to trigger whatever the effect of the Event is, as an alternative to (or in addition to) buying cards from the Supply.

Events are not Kingdom cards; including one or more Events in a game does not count toward the 10 Kingdom card piles the Supply includes. In fact, Events are not considered "cards" at all; any text referring to a "card" (such as instructions to "name a card", or cost reducers changing the cost of cards) does not apply to Events. However, for reference, the Event effects and costs are printed on cards in a landscape orientation with silver frames.

There are 54 Events, including 1 promo, any number of which may be used in a game of Dominion, though Donald X. recommends not using more than two total Events, Landmarks, Projects, and Ways. When choosing a random Kingdom, the Events may be shuffled into the randomizer deck; any Events that are dealt once 10 Kingdom cards have also been dealt will be included in the game.

List of Events

Official Rules

  • Events are not Kingdom cards.
  • In a player’s Buy phase, when a player can buy a card, they can buy an Event instead.
  • Buying an Event means paying the cost indicated on the Event and then doing the effect of the Event.
  • The Event just stays on the table, the player does not take it; there is no way for players to gain one or end up with one in their decks.
  • Buying an Event uses up a Buy; normally a player can either buy a card, or buy an Event.
  • A player with two Buys, such as after playing RangerRanger.jpg, could buy two cards, or buy two Events, or buy a card and an Event (in either order).
  • The same Event can be bought multiple times in a turn if the player has the Buys and $ available to do it.
  • Some Events give +Buys and so let the player buy further cards/Events afterwards.
  • Players cannot play further Treasures that turn after buying an Event.
  • Buying an Event is not buying a card and so does not trigger cards like Swamp HagSwamp Hag.jpg.
  • Costs of Events are not affected by cards like BridgeBridge.jpg.

Preparation

  • Events, Landmarks, and Projects can be shuffled into the randomizer deck (despite having a different back).
  • They are not part of the 10 Kingdom cards used in a game; when an Event, Landmark, or Project is turned over, put it on the table but keep turning over cards until you get 10 Kingdom cards. For normal play we recommend using no more than two total of Events, Landmarks, and Projects. Skip any further Event, Landmark, and Project cards turned over.
  • Also skip Events, Landmarks, and Projects when using a randomizer card to determine whether or not to use PlatinumPlatinum.jpg/ColonyColony.jpg (from ProsperityProsperity.jpg), or Shelters (from Dark AgesDark Ages.jpg) in a game.
  • Events, Landmarks, and Projects cannot be Young Witch'sYoung Witch.jpg bane (from CornucopiaCornucopia.jpg).
  • Another approach some people may prefer is to shuffle Events, Landmarks, and Projects separately into their own randomizer deck, and always play with one or two of them.

Trivia

In other languages

  • Dutch: Gebeurtenis
  • German: Ereignis
  • Japanese: イベント (pron. ibento)
  • Polish: Zdarzenie
  • Russian: Событие (pron. sobytiye)

Preview

AdventuresAdventures.jpg has 30 Kingdom cards. It also has 20 Events. It's high time we looked at some of those. Man, they're sideways.

An Event is something you can buy in your Buy phase that isn't a card. You pay your $, you use up a Buy, and something happens. They don't take up Kingdom card slots; you shuffle them into your randomizer deck, but when you deal out cards, keep going until you have 10 Kingdom cards. I recommend stopping at two Events, but it's up to you.


EmpiresEmpires.jpg brings back Events. They were fun but I did everything I could think of to do with them in Adventures. But well, this set had new stuff; maybe that new stuff would allow for more Events? In fact of thirteen new Events, nine involve either VP tokens or Debt or both.


MenagerieMenagerie (expansion).jpg also has 20 Events. They're just like the ones in AdventuresAdventures.jpg and EmpiresEmpires.jpg, only new. In your Buy phase, you can use a Buy and pay the cost to generate the effect. Some of the Events involve Horses or Exile, but many don't, including these three.

Secret History

There are twenty Events. Some people no doubt have already complained that the set has six blanks. Couldn't that have been six more Events? Man. You got twenty. I didn't have a pile of great ones I cut to put in the blanks. You have to stop working on the expansions at some point and let them get released.


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


I also planned to add Events to the set. The set was going to have to be 400 cards, to include 30 HorsesHorse.jpg and some landscapes and not have fewer Kingdom cards than usual. So, it had space. It took me a while to get around to trying some Events, but when I did that all worked out, there were new things to do, not all of them involving Exile and HorsesHorse.jpg.
