Description Edit | History

Survey the galaxy to expand your civilization – will you colonize nearby planets, or take them over by force? Harvest resources for trade, and do research to improve your technology. Build the best civilization and win the game!

Eminent Domain is a civilization-building game in which your civilization's abilities are based on a deck of Role cards. At the beginning of the game each player has the same deck of cards, with just two cards for each Role in it. Every turn you must choose a Role to execute (and like Glory to Rome or Puerto Rico, your opponents will get a chance to follow suit), and in doing so you will add one of those Role cards to your deck. When executing a Role, you can boost its effect by playing cards out of your hand matching the Role you have chosen. For example, the more you Research, the better you get at Researching (because you'll have more Research cards in your deck).

3 Eminent Domain + Expansion Card Divider Tops for Folders
I used these files to make 'card folders' instead of dividers - the process is as follows: - Cut sheets of card into three strips 92mm wide each (both A4 and Letter sizes should be OK for this) - Print the headers in this file out on label paper - Cut the bottom line of each header, below the white section - Stick the headers to the ends of these strips, one per strip, lining up the top of the folder shape near the top of the strip by holding up to a light - Measure 24mm from the bottom of the header and score a fold - Measure the appropriate width down from this fold (using the details below) and score another fold - Measure 67mm down from the second fold and cut the end of the strip off at this length - Fold the two scored lines as shown in the accompanying photo The...
