Over the last few months I have been playing a game called Dominion. Dominion is a designer card game created by Donald X. Vaccarino, and published by Rio Grande Games. It is a deck-building card game in which the players compete to gather the most valuable deck of cards, representing a Kingdom.
There are also many expansions available that add to the fun. After introducing this to my gaming buddies at work, well, let’s just say I wish I got a commission.
Up until recently I have been using the Dominion Kingdom Deck for iPhone created by Jerry Hsu. But since I am not an iPhone user any more, Long live WP7!, I was a bit out of luck. So, I started working on writing one for the Windows Phone 7 platform. Thanks to Jerry for sharing some of his rule logic.
Since I am a web developer soon be phone developer I thought I would work out the logic in a web application first. I know there are several web based card pickers out there already and many of them are very good. I only did this to get it out in the wild and test the logic while I learn the Windows Phone UI development.
I am happy to announce that I have published The Dominion Game Generator version 1. It can be found at http://dominion.jaysmith.us/.
If you play Dominion please give it a try and let me know if any issues you run into. I am currently working on the Windows Phone 7 version and hope to have it out soon.
