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!

I’m pleased to announce that we’re just a couple days away from the BGG Star Realms League – the oldest running Star Realms competition – beginning its 50th season of play on 1 July. This is not only a major milestone for the League, but it also marks the implementation of the biggest set of changes to the League during my tenure as League Commissioner and possibly in the entire history of the League.
Each month we will post an update on what’s happening in the world of online leagues/tournaments.
Interested in joining any of these leagues? Check out our prior post, Guide to Online Leagues, for a description of each league and how to join.

We all love Star Realms, but most of us primarily play online. In fact, there is a whole lot of the community that either don’t own the physical cards, or if they do, have only touched them to sleeve them and put them away for safe keeping. Which is fine. But what happens when you go to a live tournament? What happens when you want to win a playmat, some cash, or even your face on a card at Origins or Gen Con?
Whether you realize it or not, playing the physical game is a much different experience than playing online. So, how can you prepare? How can you transition from being a great player online to a great player in the real world? Hopefully, this article can help with that.
