Hey, sorry. New to this whole Forum thing. I wanted to look for some recommended Fan Cards? Some of you guys playtested these right? There's just so many! I don't know which ones will be good. So please, if you have any Recommendations please post some links!

Well, not to toot my own horn, but here's my expansion: Enterprise

Almost all of the cards have gotten quite a bit of testing, but I also give an out-of-5 stars rating for how confident I am in each card (based on amount and quality of testing).

I'll also give a shout-out to X-tra, who makes great fan cards. Here's one of his sets: New World

I often test with Gubump and crlundy as well, though I don't think either of them has a thread with a full expansion right now. I may be wrong.

For my set, yes. I'm not 100% sure New World is up-to-date, but you could ask in that thread.

Hehe, there are always things to tweak for sure. An expansion is never truly complete :P . Biggest blunder so far in New World is the subpar wording on Mountain Lands. The rulebook also has problems and would benefit from a second pass.

Enterprise (linked by LastFootnote above) is probably one of the longest, most ambitious fan expansion out there. So it gets a big fat thumbs up from me as well.

Of quality as well, I can redirect you toward Asper's massive set of cards tweaked and tested over the years. Sadly, the pictures have been taken down, but Asper did mock up some cards for each of the entries in the thread. I'd also like to recommend Dominion: Venus, made by Carline. The quality of the cards (with pictures!) there is phenomenal. Carline has applied the comments and suggestions from the Discord community and as such, the final product has very high standards.

There are more fan expansions out there, but these are the 2 others that immediately popped in my noggin'.

I don't have a thread for it yet, but I do have a weebly for a fan expansion I'm working on. It is, however, far from complete, both in terms of how many cards are in the set and how much the cards already there have been playtested.

In my signature, I have links to my list of other people's fan-made cards* I've played with and like as well as my fan expansion: Resurgence.

*EDIT: I need to update this list soon. There's several more I can add at this point.

Oh, also. I once made a thread compiling 25 cards from the first 100 Weekly Design Contest together. The compilation includes many cards from various talented creators. It can be found here.

The Weekly Design Contest is an ongoing contest that still sees a lot of participation today even though it was started in late 2018. Each week or so, the winner from the previous contest comes up with a new one in which they impose some sort of restriction to the competitors (ex: Create a Duration card). People enter their card and one week later, the contest creator picks a winner among a list of runner ups and that winner creates the next contest. So on and so forth. This is mostly where the efforts of card creation can be found outside of r/Dominion nowadays.

I have a group that plays on Tabletop Simulator with all the official cards and a bunch of fan-expansions. These are the fan-expansions I almost always put in the randomizer for my games:
Ice Age
Enterprise
Alchemy-Reforged
New World
Antiquities
Industrialization
Plague
Urbanization
Conspiracy
Revolution

I don't have a link for them, but I think they all originated in these forums in one way or another.

Ah yes, Alchemy Reforged, mentioned just above is very neatly put together. Dominion: Aracadia, from the same creator, The Alchemist (also known on the Discord server as Annie), is a smaller-sized set that also received some play testing care. As such, it's a good set that I'd happily recommend as well.


Ice Age
Enterprise
Alchemy-Reforged
New World
Antiquities
Industrialization
Plague
Urbanization
Conspiracy
Revolution

I put together Urbanization, but as a fair word of warning, this "expansion" was made on a whim. Everything in there is untested and probably uuuh not as good as I wish it could be. Just uh, be careful what you put in your games with stuff in there! Some of the ideas are nice, but could be executed way better. The power of playtesting certainly is a worthwhile investment.
