The new set, Rise of the Empire is a two player set that tells the story of how the Star Empire was formed in Rebellion to the Trade Federation and predates existence of the Machine Cult and the Blob! This all takes place before the timeline of the Core Star Realms Set (A Prequel!).
There are New Factions! These include:
The Consortium: The Wealthier worlds who are in close proximity to the Trade Federation
The Kingdom: A Militaristic Monarchy
Scavengers – A loose confederation of colonies and smugglers who are outside the area of Trade Federation control in Uncharted Space
This new set will Campaign centered and will be played “Legacy” style meaning that physical changes will be made to cards over the run of the Campaign. These changes will involve Faction stickers that will permanently modify the card (or just use a sleeve).
We’ll talk about the gameplay mechanics and changes in the next update! In the meantime, take a look at these images!

Hope everyone is enjoying the Megahaulin Classics. For those not familiar, we needed to take down the original episodes so we could clean them up. Its been a labor of love to revisit each of the episodes, but some of them really mark some awesome milestones in the Star Realms online community.
Today the Special Gambit episode featuring MazerRackham was posted. It remains one of my all time favorite Megahaulin episodes. His strategy insights are concise and illumination. Everyone should listen to this one, even if they’ve already heard it.
We just saw that Megahaulin blog contributor and legendary podcast Co-Hose Matt “The Cutter” Newberg has posted an awesome video that discusses Gambits, Heros, Events and Missions. The video does a great job of breaking down the individual game mechanics for each, but also take a current take on the Star Realms Meta and how these cards can be utilized to max effect. Lot’s of great tips and insights. Well worth the watch!
