This Dominion - Expansion is one of the small expansions with only 150 cards from the Lucky Jack - published publisher to Nuremberg Toy Fair 2011. Rich harvest has a main issue, namely the card name. To crops, there is always money or resources when cards with different names are on hand or deck. The card "harvest" for example causes the player to uncover four cards of his deck and to get as much gold for the purchase phase, such as cards with different names ausliegen. This may bring up to 4 gold.
The three most interesting cards in the expansion are "the young witch", the "Harlequin" and "the tournament". The "young witch" is not alone in the game, but brings a spell stack. Their cards are played exactly like all the other cards, but calls the played "young witch" by a teammate to keep the spell card in your hand or a curse - to take card. So if you do not buy any spell cards can be quickly einhandeln a considerable number of curses. more »

In the third expansion to Dominion is all about money. This is in fact an abundance there and can be spent as you like. The basic rules while remaining as they are, however, added some variations.
Facilities Dominion heyday include not only maps. There are as with Seaside real metal - coins and is also made of metal Siebpunkt - markers. That feels really valuable and it's great fun to strum with the metal parts.
New storage - tables are added to the game, but where only the panel "trade route" really matter if the same card participates in the game. In this case, all the points card to be used (the green) with a coin after the first purchase lands each one of these cards on the table. There she pays to the monetary value of the trade route. The other signs are not affecting play, but serve as a rallying point for the players moving the marker points. more »

For our frequent player unbelievable but true ... there is actually a small part of the population that is not only the Carcassonne - escaped fever, but which is unknown to even the game. It is this experience, we had to do in the last days, as us, a friend asked him to explain the game to some detail.
So we decided, but to write up a few lines to the "Game of the Year 2001" in the near future and also to the numerous extensions deserve it ... this has always ...
A special feature of Carcassonne, is the fact that there is no classical Schedule, but show many small square tiles, the different landscapes, streets, monasteries and towns and are actually drawn not very attractive, functional rather. Thus one can match the attribute a distant relationship to laying games like dominoes. Included in the game are still a point bar and a couple of wood -.

Since now the third official promo card "hide money" to Dominion from Hans im Glück come onto the market, we have taken this as an opportunity to put our Minister in the newly arrived case and to play a few games.
The Messenger is an action card, which causes the top 5 cards are dealt from your own deck. The left neighbor then selects one of the revealed cards, which must pass the active player then. The remaining cards must now be made to the source.
The map is similar to the black market, a nice mini - enlargement, which certainly is not for the casual gamer really matters. The mass of maps, which are already included in the game can go under the map and actually, only with regular games.
The Messenger was originally distributed at the Vienna Festival Games, is currently also still get the Hans im Glück.

The fact that the available mini-expansion in the box is a "black market" only on that same is available, we have taken the opportunity to write a short report on it.
Before starting the game, a black-market stack is formed. This includes one map of all kingdom cards that are not in stock anyway.

For one, this has in the purchase phase 2 virtual coins are available and on the other he can the top three cards from the black market - discover stack, from where you can buy a card immediately.

Who does not know, the exciting stories of old sea dogs, who set out to discover new islands and peoples. Günter Burkhardt makes us in his game to a Maori of these adventurers, and sends us out to Polynesia to explore the local islands.
As usual at Lucky Jack in the box is a lot of beautiful and quality material. In addition to the plate with islands and island parts, double sided player panels, wood shells and wooden boats are included. The short and richly designed for rules contain three versions of "beginner", "intermediate" and "pros". At this point, only the rules for "advanced" are described as these offer the best mix of luck and strategy.
After each player has received his material (table, boat, 5 mussels), a 4 × 4 field is built up large grid of island tiles in the middle of the table. This is during the game drive around the exploration ship. The aim of the game is to fill your own tableau with as large and valuable islands. While the value of a terminal is determined by the number of thereon palms. Is found on the island to offer at least a hut, the value is doubled. Even garlands bring (if they are complete) bonus points. more »
