Dominion, that’s what you’re trying to achieve. This time with animals! They each have a lesson to teach, whether it’s how to spit really far, or what kind of grass tastes the best. It’s a lot to keep track of, but you’re like an elephant: you remember everything. And you’re afraid of mice. You’ve taken up riding. Horses are intimidating; they say you can lead a horse to water, but you haven’t managed it. So you’re working your way up, starting with dogs. So far so good; the dog hasn’t bucked you off yet. Your menagerie got off to a poor start, with just a goat, two rats, and the advisor who suggested starting a menagerie. You couldn’t get that fox you wanted, but it was probably bad anyway. Now you’ve got some camels, which are just as useless for sewing as you’d been warned, and a turtle that can hold its breath for longer than anyone can stay interested. Soon the animal kingdom will be yours.
This is the 13th expansion to Dominion. It has 400 cards, with 30 new Kingdom cards. There are Horses that save a draw for later, Exile mats that cards can be sent to and rescued from, and Ways that give Actions another option. Events return.
Dominion: Menagerie is an expansion, and cannot be played by itself; to play with it, you need the Basic cards and rulebook (Dominion provides both). Dominion: Menagerie can also be combined with any other Dominion expansions you have. We hope you enjoy this expanding world of Dominion!

As a huge Dominion fan I've greatly enjoyed this expansion. The "ways" cards addition gives a nice breath of something new and refreshing. I've also played Menagerie with a few other expansions and it plays well with the other sets.
Delivery and updates from GameNerdz were accurate and performed as advertised on the site (i.e. two day delivery was actually two days). Glad to have found a cheaper place than Amazon for this purchase!
I like all of the dominion expansions, but this is one of the better one. The cards are consistently good and not over powered, and add a decent new level to the game without having to learn new aspects (such as tavern, exile, island, etc). I would compare it to hinterlands or cornucopia, but fresher and still different enough to be refreshing.
That's my 2 cents
