Darker-blue backed cards

Correct me where I'm wrong here:

The darker-blue backed kingdom cards (at least in the base set - all I have) are for use as a randomizer, right? They are essentially the '11th' of each kingdom card (obviously not to be used for general play).

What about the darker-blue backed VP and Treasure cards? What are they for? Thats what I can't figure out.

Thanks in advance,

They are there to complete your set of blue-backed cards.  Gotta-catch-em-all.

I don't know if it's intended or not, but a common use for them is as a placeholder for when a pile runs out.  That way you can see right away that a pile is empty, instead of having to double-check that the pile wasn't just moved somewhere else by accident.

They don't really have a use. You can mark empty piles with them, but there are lots of ways to mark empty piles.

Looking back on the first time I played Dominion, I think the person who taught me (who had only just played her first game) said that those cards were in there for really hardcore players who wanted to only play with some of the basic cards. Obviously that's not true, but it's really funny to think about.

Interesting twist: playing Dominion with 10 random Action cards, 3-4 random Treasure cards and 3-4 random Victory cards each game. Include C/S/G/Pt and E/D/P/Col in the randomizer piles.

That would be really cool, actually.

I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be.
