A good solid deck building game

I felt the need to pop on and leave a review - I understand that, at some point, other people have had issues but perhaps those issues have been dealt with (I certainly haven't stumbled upon anything game breaking) and it would be a shame for you to miss out because of the bad reviews. It's slick, simple to pick up and a solid card game offering.

Someone complained that you can't keep your deck and you start off weak - that's because it's a deck building game not a collectible card game... The difference is that you build your deck within each game - this means you have to alter your strategy to build with the cards on offer.

I really like it but it's a shame that the online games are empty - I can only imagine it's because of the bad reviews....

Brilliant deck-building game

I love dominion and hero wars and star realms so I was very excited to check this similar card game out-it’s awesome! The gameplay is just what I wanted in a deck builder but with so many unique and interesting little twists which make for a really well balanced and enjoyable experience each game. Even offline, the repeat play value is very high since there are sooooo many cards and so much variance. I like the way all cards have a point value which is totalled at the end and added to ur score, it means that a player can’t just hone down their deck cos u will lose on points, it means each turn what u purchase must be considered for end game as well as during the game itself. The art is just incredible and totally unique. Fantastic! I would like to see more customisation of what cards I can include in off line games, so I can go into an expansion and cherry pick a few to not put in as I do choose - that would be so nice please! Well done on a great creation 😊

Great game, detracted by some niggles

The base game and expansions in themselves are really good and have provided me with the most time in an app so far. I have played mostly pass and play with my partner with some solo play. I notice disappearing cards occasionally which is an annoyance. The biggest annoyance is having to rewatch the hand played when it’s passed over, no need for it, just set it as an option if need be. Really slows the game down. The later expansions are not as interesting, tried to add mechanics to the game, and for me they just make it overly complicated. A final nag is on the 60 star limit on online games. Otherwise well worth playing.
