Isotropic ran a Web-based version of the card game Dominion for a very long time. I played countless hours of Dominion on this unauthorized, unofficial site. Users could play the base game and almost all of the expansions for free. The person who wrote the code and hosted the site (to my knowledge) ran it completely for free and did not generate any money.
All of my gaming friends knew it was too good to be true, and expected the site to be shut down at any time. Days turned into weeks, weeks to months, and months to years. Years. Years of a lot of fun, playing a game better suited for the digital realm than the physical. For free.
On about March 14, 2013 Isotropic shut down their online version of Dominion. An official product had been launched over at playdominion.com. The person who ran Isotropic shut the server and that’s the end of era.
