What is this?
Dominion is a card game published by Rio Grande Games. It is really awesome.
This is a new project so it's a much a work on progress. Right now you can play on the console with a subset of the cards from the Base set.
State of the Project
My original proof of concept is a terminal based game. That's what's in the master and terminal branches. I've switched over to working in the rack branch. I hoped to leave this branch in a playable state, but I think some bugs have bled over. The rack branch is where all the excitement is happening - turning the terminal server into a rack mountable game instance server.
How to Play
Want to play? Install ruby, rspec, rake and clone the repo.
~ $ git clone git://github.com/jmckible/dominion.git ~ $ cd dominion
Now start a server
~ $ rake server
You'll be prompted to enter the number of players in the game
Over in another console
~ $ rake play
If you are playing remotely, pass HOST and/or PORT environment variables.
Interested in strategy simulations? We've got you covered. Just create a Player subclass and seat it at a game. Check out BigMoney as an example. You can play against BigMoney locally by starting a server like so:
~ $ rake server:big_money
If you want to run simulations, check out lib/simulation.rb You can invoke it with a rake task:
~ $ rake simulate
I've finished the Base set Kingdom cards. Next up, I'll be working on adding the Seaside expansion.
