Victory point

From DominionStrategy Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The object of Dominion is to have the most victory points (VP) at the end of the game. These are chiefly obtained by having Victory cards in one's deck at the end of the game. CurseCurse.jpg cards are worth negative victory points. Several cards, Events and Landmarks from Prosperity and Empires produce victory point tokens, which are also worth victory points and don't take up space in the deck themselves, while other Landmarks provide bonus or penalty victory points at the end of the game based on various criteria. Sources of victory points excluding basic cards are called alt-VP.

Variable VP cards typically give VP based on the cards in your own deck, always rounded down if they count in multiples larger than 1. Many of them benefit from large decks. Bandit FortBandit Fort.jpg, Wolf DenWolf Den.jpg and WallWall.jpg are the only means of receiving negative victory points other than CurseCurse.jpgs and MiseryMisery.jpg

Victory point tokens



In Donald X.'s prototype, the VP symbol was a crown instead of a shield.

I picked the crown, I liked the crown. I don't know why it was changed to a shield. A crown is better. If they considered other symbols they did not tell me about it. I don't have any more information on the shield; I don't know what that's supposed to be. I don't know anything about heraldry; I have tried to get anachronisms fixed when I've spotted them. I don't even see the shield except when testing campaigns or something online; the prototype has crowns.
