From the Department of Five-years-Late-To-The-Party
I picked up Star Realms for the Decathlon, but without enthusiasm because it’s just another deck builder and I suck at deck builders.
Well, I’ve been playing it solidly for 3 days now. Sorry everyone waiting for me to take my move in other online games but I’ve been occupied. I don’t know whether it’s the primary colours and pew-pew-in-space theme, or the skinner-box-esque feeling when the deck chains just so and unrolls 50 points of damage onto the AI, but I seem to be gripped.
Yes, the AI. I think I still have a sub-50% record against the medium AI, although I am about to pay the full version and can go even worse against the hard AI. I still suck at deck builders, obviously.
Anyway, so, there appear to be a lot of expansions? Which are worth getting to start with? Any good sources of advice (assume I’ve read all of BGG, for what that’s worth)?
