Disclosure: 2 games with 3 players, 1 game with 4.

All of my plays of Dominare have been fantastic. It’s an area control game that’s dripping with theme, and really feels like it’s elevated the genre above “cube pushing.”

The game takes about 2 hours to play with 3 or 4 players, and this feels like a great game length for what it is. With 5 or 6, it might bog down a bit, but it’s hard to tell as I haven’t played at that player number.

One thing I really like is the replayability. The character cards are really what make this game stand out from the pack, and drafting characters that interact well with other characters is a really interesting mechanic. I also love how exposure fits in thematically and mechanically: the most powerful characters have the most exposure, so if you deploy them you become the scapegoat, which means that random game events hit you the hardest.

The only negative thing I have to say is that the cards could have been nicer. I don’t know if it’s only my game, but some of the cards had some odd gritty texture to the back of them.

All in all, I’d say this is a really interesting AND fun game, and I’m not sure why it’s not getting any hype. Give it a shot if you like area control games high in interaction/confrontation and subtlety.
