For the main game see Dominion (Base Set) and for the product containing only basic cards see Base Cards.

Basic cards (or Base cards) are those cards in the Supply (or players' starting decks) that are not Kingdom cards. DominionDominion.jpg (published in 2008) introduced CopperCopperOld.jpg, SilverSilverOld.jpg, GoldGoldOld.jpg, EstateEstateOld.jpg, DuchyDuchyOld.jpg, ProvinceProvinceOld.jpg, and CurseCurseOld.jpg as basic cards, and other expansions have added to their ranks.

Since the publication of the Base CardsBase Cards.jpg pack in 2012, basic Treasure, Victory and Curse cards have had new, individual illustrations.

Release June 2012
Cover artist Matthias Catrein

The Base Cards were released as their own set in June 2012, including enough cards for up to four players. The set includes all of the base cards released before Dark AgesDark Ages.jpg, with new art for every card in the set. These cards can be added to the base setDominion.jpg or Intrigue (First Edition)Intrigue.jpg to play with five or six players, or used to play Dominion with an expansion that does not include base cards.

While the set includes PotionPotion.jpg, AlchemyAlchemy.jpg is required for Potion to have a use; and it is recommended to only use PlatinumPlatinum.jpg/ColonyColony.jpg when playing with ProsperityProsperity.jpg.

In 2018, the Base Cards were reprinted with the updated formatting used in the Second Edition Base set. This reprint also gave the standalone Base Cards their own unique icon.
