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!
