Dominations is a Civilization game on a grand scale. A game lasts 3 rounds, with each round representing a time span of around 1000 years in the history of your Civilization. During these centuries you will spread into new territories, build Cities and Monuments, and develop different skills.

Each player’s turn is split into 3 phases

GROW

During the Grow phase, you’ll be placing Land tiles to gain Knowledge points, which are the main resource of the game. There are 6 types of Knowledge available: Government, Craft, Art, Religion, Trade, and Science, each with its own colour. By matching up the different Knowledge types represented on the tiles, you can earn additional Knowledge points. Players are free to place their tiles wherever they wish, and as the game progresses, these tiles will create an impressive world map.

BUILD

During the Build Phase, you can construct Cities and Monuments. Cities increase your people’s influence, improve your capacity to store Knowledge points, and gain you additional Knowledge each time a new Land tile is placed next to them.

Monuments are common objectives that all players can contribute to. These magnificent structures are built level by level. Each level you construct will grant you special in-game powers and bonus points!

DEVELOP

During the Develop Phase, you can acquire Mastery cards, which represent the skills and disciplines your society is particularly proficient at. Each time you master a Skill, it becomes one of the pillars of your society, opening doors to new possibilities and increasing your power. Your Mastery cards are laid out in front of you to constitute your Civilization Tree. As it grows throughout the game, this tree will tell the story of your people!

At the end of each age you’ll score points based on your Influence. On top of that, the player with the most remaining points of any one Knowledge type acquires a special bonus, so you’ll have to choose whether to spend your points during play or save them to begin the next round with a bigger advantage…
By the end of the game, you’ll have built an impressive engine, combining the advantages of different Mastery cards, with the effects of your City placement and resource spending. Once the dust has settled, the player with the most Victory points wins!

Dominations: Road to Civilization is a new take on the classic Civ game – regular resources and conflicts between nations won’t even register on its sprawling time scale. There are no wars or armies, you’ll be judged purely by the society you create and the legacy you leave behind.

Dominations: Road to Civilization is an expert, strategic Eurogame that will challenge even the most experienced players. Deep without being overly complex, players have complete freedom to build their Civilisation any way they desire, but only one will go down in History…

Designed by the creators of Museum – Olivier Melison and Eric Dubus – Dominations: Road to Civilization is Holy Grail Games’ 4th creation, and our first expert Eurogame. Thanks to the combined efforts of Florian Stitz, Loïc Muzy, Amber Scharf, Floriane Habbak and Agathe Pitié, Dominations is a compelling and immersive visual experience, with individually illustrated cards and tiles.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Dominations: Road to Civilization transformed into a surprise hit after its release in early 2020, selling thousands of copies in retail worldwide and attracting rave reviews, including The Dice Tower’s Seal of Excellence.
