Alchemy is a fine expansion. My only knock against it is that it doesn't fit as seamlessly with the rest in that oftentimes you're either playing with potion cards or you aren't. Having a kingdom with one potion card is essentially having a nine-card kingdom. This is not a bad thing. It just means that the Alchemy cards don't get used as often.

Not the best expension for Dominion. Includes some (really) powerful cards, like Golem (play two actions for nothing) and Pocession (as devious as Torturer, people raged a lot more with this one) but you can't really include this when playing with totally random cards. If you want to play with this one you should at least put 3 Alchemy cards in your kingdom, otherwise they would just be ignored.


I'm still a sucker for Dominion and its expansions. Always happy to play.

The extra resource (potions) just made the game complicated without benefits to gameplay.
