Dominion Alchemy Release Date: 5/7

It’s finally been announced!  Alchemy, the newest expansion for Dominion, will be in stores 5/7.  This set introduces Potions – a new kind of money.  Many cards cost coins and a potion, while others reward you for having played potions during your turn.  I got the opportunity to play with this set back in the beginning of April, and I can tell you first hand that some of these cards are freaking amazing.  For example:  Golem!

Golem   4 (potion)

Reveal cards from the top of your deck until you reveal two non-Golem action cards.  Play them both in either order.

Little bit better than a Village, don’t you think?  Golem, combined with a few other +action cards, leads to some very explosive turns and generally a lot of provinces.  And I’m proud to say this is *not* the coolest card in the set (although it’s in the top three).

And as a special offer for all you guys who know you’re going to get Alchemy anyway:  Preorder it ahead of time through Canton Games and get 20% off the price tag when it comes out.  Hey, you know what would be a great time to come to the store?  Saturday, on Free Comic Book Day!  It’s like the world is revolving in your favor!
