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.

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.

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.
