I wanted to drop in and share my current Star Realms set with you. In recent months I spent many hours playing this amazing game with my friends. In this time I started developing an interest in deck-building, which made me come back to the game with the goal to make a definitive experience. I played with balance, card amounts and all possible variations that might give different angles to the whole setting. This is what I came up with after months of recycling, restructuring and rethinking my approaches.
First off I would like to give me three essential mantras for my set:
Make it fun
Make it balanced and all factions thematically coherent
Easy on surface with big potential for clever plays
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!
