Processing Timeframes

All our items that state are in stock, are physically in stock in our warehouse in Brisbane. We do not drop ship, or indicate we have items that we don't have physical stock of.

Processing time frames are as follows:

  • Board Games and accessories are Next Business Day.
  • 3DLevelup branded items are typically posted 1-3 Business Days.

For 3DLevelup branded items, whilst we have the items in stock, we need to often assemble, sort, quality check and pack your items which can take time. Sometimes our quality check prior to shipment will require us to re-print a small part.

If you have purchased a Pre-Order item (stated in the item name), our processing time is typically 5-10 business days as we need to print your order.

Our business operates Monday to Friday but we try and answer questions from the online chat outside business hours if able to do so. We understand many of our customers are in a very different time zone to us. Shipping drop offs and pickups are also Monday to Friday. 

Delivery Timeframes

For domestic shipping Australia Post typically delivers within 5 business days. We often see deliveries in Brisbane locations take 2 business days.

For international orders it is typically 9-26 days but we have seen this extend out to 35 days to some countries.

A classic deck builder, considered one of the best. Cards are placed in a market. Play a card and buy a card to build your engine, but be careful buying too many point cards will clog it up.

Dominion is the game that started a new genre:  Deckbuilding.  Winner of the Spiel des Jahres in 2008 and many other awards, Dominion has established itself as a true classic.  With more than a dozen expansions currently available, players will always be able to find new challenges.

If you have never played Dominion before, start here with the basic game.  There are millions of different combinations that can be played just with Dominion alone.  Each game is different but only lasts 20-30 minutes.  Great for two players but just as fun with more players.

GAME COMPONENTS

This is a game of building a deck of cards. The deck contains your resources, victory points, and the things you can do. It starts out a small sad collection of Estates and Coppers, but you hope that by the end of the game it will be brimming with Gold, Provinces, and the inhabitants and structures of your kingdom.

GAME IDEA

You are a monarch, like your parents before you, a ruler of a small pleasant kingdom of rivers and evergreens. Unlike your parents, however, you have hopes… dreams! You want a bigger kingdom, more pleasant, with more rivers, and a wider variety of trees. You want a Dominion!

In all directions lie fiefs, freeholds, and feodums. All are small bits of land, controlled by petty lords and verging on anarchy. You will bring civilization to these people, uniting them under your banner. But wait! It must be something in the air; several other monarchs have had the exact same idea. You must race to get as much of the unclaimed land as possible, fending them off along the way. To do this you will hire minions, construct buildings, spruce up your castle, and fill the coffers of your treasury. Your parents wouldn’t be proud, but your grandparents, on your mother’s side, would be delighted.

Our Personal Review and Recommendation

There is a reason why Dominion is a must have game. It has continued to set the bar for a deck builder game, and I'd consider still one of the best. This game get often played, it's fast to setup, and always generates a lot of table talk and interaction when played. Absolutely love this, and all our family members play it, one of our sons favourites (under 10 years old) and a good friends favourite game. Id never decline a game of Dominion. If you haven't played it I'd strongly recommend trying it out. Rank from us 8.5/10.


If you wanted an expansion I'd recommend Prosperity as the first, followed by Seaside.
