Bigger is better. Get more.

Bigger is better. Get more. The more, the merrier. Those are just a few of the very American slogans which are put into actions via this set of ten Dominion cards.

Like its siblings, American Excess I and III, every card of this Gardens-based deck is designed to give you more of something. Do more, buy more and draw another card with the Worker's Village. Use Ironworks to gain a card to your discard pile and get an extra treasure point, an extra card or an extra action, too. Gain +2 actions and save up for a big purchase later (or thin out your deck without trashing anything, depending on the draws) with the Native Village. Let the Explorer deliver silver and gold directly to your hand. Gain a silver while slowing down the opponent(s) via the Bureaucrat. Turn property acquisitions (victory card purchases) into gold with the Hoard. Smugglers are an efficient way of keeping up with the proverbial Joneses. Shelter your assets in the (Cayman) Islands and double your pleasure with Throne Room.
