News and updates from all the Competitive Star Realms Leagues and Tournaments
I’ve always been a fan of comics. I had a bit of time and decided to think through what a ”Star Realms” Comic might be like. This was fun to make and I hope you enjoy!
In today’s Legend Tournament, held 12.26.21 in the Star Realms Digital App, Thestral defeated MauveTurtle in a one game playoff. At a time when Jochum is largely considered overpowered against most foes, the Commander makes his appearance vs. McCready in a game for the ages. Usually, we’re not luck enough to have documentation of the match, but in this nail biter, you can see just how Thestral’s Legend was born. Enjoy!
This time Dustin and Rick get back together to celebrate a great dodgeball victory and determine if Jochum should be banned from competitive play. Rick puts a bounty on Corybear88!
Bit of a delay here in posting this episode – BUT ITS WORTH THE WAIT! We’ve got newly minted Star Realm Legend EAN TEAGUE aka AgentSeto. Yes, that AgentSeto from Ep 103. This is a great conversation that is not to be missed!
If you’re curious about the Dodgeball format mentioned, take a look here.
Congrats to Ean on the well earned win!
Everything you need to know about the Unicorn Format
By Cory Thomas (IGN corybear88 and known on the Facebook as Daisy Tom)
Why is it called unicorn?
A unicorn is a rare and mythical creature. Winning a star realms game by completing missions on your first 3 turns is a rare event (possibly also mythical, but that’s debatable). So winning on your first 3 turns via missions was called a unicorn, and the name has stuck.
Feel free to #blamePolites for this interlude in the lesson to see what it looks like when a unicorn is bagged.
What is the format?Continue reading
An astute reader pointed out that the first several episodes of Megahaulin Classics were not available in the public feed. It was learned that this was due to some content expiration configurations on the podcast hosting side.
It looks like the only way to bring this missing episodes back from the grave is the republish them again with a current date and then sort them into the proper timeline. This means that some of you who automatically download older episodes will see some additional content in your feed.
Apologies in advance. Please feel free to listen and laugh at the older content, just like we do!
Update: Looks like the crisis has been averted. For those looking for Megahaulin Classics, you can easily view them by following the filter here.
There are numerous tournament formats to be found in Star Realms. We’ll start covering these a bit more as their popularity has increased quite a bit in recent years. If you ever get bored with “basic” Star Realms, just know that there are a myriad of options available and today we’ll introduce Dodgeball.
Dodgeball was originally the brainchild of MarauderMo inspired by AceGeiger’s Zombie Tournament (Mo was also the author of the Endurance Challenge). After several pickup games and rules refinement, CrankyDay, with the support of SilentAl and several others, had built a framework which has led to seven seasons and counting of league play as well as numerous smaller events.Continue reading
