From a pure numbers standpoint, Dark Ages would be the best with 37 new Kingdom cards, only 6 of which are Attack cards. From how well the sets are regarded by the designer (and others from what I have heard), you are better off getting Intrigue or Seaside. Q: If you could go back in time and redesign which cards were in which sets, and the order the ...

No, you can only trade with the bank in your own trading phase. The special building phase is just for building!

Baratheon strength 2 is Final if the Throne ranking so determines : which house executes first and next house executes after. So slightly counter-intuitively the lower Throne ranking would receive the benefit in this case. http://community.fantasyflightgames.com/index.php?/topic/73198-house-card-questions/ ...

I own all of the Ascension blocks and personally play CotG the most since the minimal mechanics allow it to be more accessible to my wife. I find it as a good introduction into the world of Ascension and then once she becomes more comfortable with it, I'll pull out the other blocks :-)

The difference is that wizards printed a whole lot of chronicles, and they sold it cheaper than normal packs. The result was a massive market flood of cards, some of which actually were somewhat valuable. compare the prices of Nicol Bolas to other obscure legends that weren't printed in chronicles like Angus Mackenzie, to see how chronicles affected it. ...

No, trading with the bank even with your ports (2:1, 3:1) is not allowed. If that rule did not exist, it would be very unlikely to have more than 7 cards in your hand. Taken from the rules (http://www.catan.com/files/downloads/settlers_5-6_rv_rules_100107.pdf): • Special Building Phase – Your opponents may build as outlined below. The Special Building ...

yes. Taken from the 5-6 players rules pdf: http://www.catan.com/files/downloads/settlers_5-6_rv_rules_100107.pdf emphasis mine: • Special Building Phase – Your opponents may build as outlined below. The Special Building Phase occurs just after the end of your turn (i.e., between player turns). All the other players may participate in the Special ...

Yes, it's correct, in that to use everything in the box, you absolutely need the base set and On the Brink. There are things in there that directly add on to things from On the Brink, and would be useless without it. But you can still use most of it without On the Brink. You can add in the roles and events, and you can play the lab, solo, and team variants. ...

http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/148931/coup-reformation is the expansion for more than 6 players. It contains 15 cards; 3 of each rather than 2 of each. I think the rules from the game say how many cards to use for how many players, since someone quotes it as 25(5 of each) cards for 9-10 players. Since you use 15(3 of each) cards for 6 players, ...

From the horse's mouth: A glance at print run numbers available in the public domain shows that Chronicles likely increased the number of some cards in existence by a factor of ten or more! Cards that were rare and highly collectible were suddenly ubiquitous. The error was one of scale... Read: market prices for a lot of cards crashed out of nowhere ...

The biggest problem with Chronicles was overprinting. The set was in-print from August 1995 to December 1996. As can be seen with other individual cards, reprints drive the prices down, and the more copies of a card exist, the lower the price. The difference between Chronicles and Modern Masters is quantity. Chronicles was in-print for over a year, and ...

I think you might enjoy trying Intrigue. It is not an attack-heavy set, which is good for your passive play, but it emphasises interaction and choices. This can pull Dominion away from being so multi-player solitaire. As others have mentioned, you can choose to not play with specific cards if you find them too attacky. The only drawback is that Intrigue ...

Personally, I would recommend Prosperity for players that don't like attacks. Prosperity adds interesting type of strategy that is less dependent on attacks. However, amazon does sell a big box deal that includes 3 different sets for a lesser price. May be worth checking out, but I think it may unfortunately include the base set too. If you are not ...

I believe the board art is also different and that's worth mentioning because if you buy the In the lab expansion you will end up with distinct board styles even purchasing the new cards.

You could just not use all of the expansions at once. Instead, pick one or two expansions, maybe at random, every game. Now there is variability, and each game will be different, but you don't have a ton of extra tiles and rules in play in any given game. This is how collectible card games like Magic the Gathering, or deck building games like Dominion, ...
