We have played this game numerous times and both applied multiple strategies and attained our victories and our losses. Today, Claire managed to create an awesome defense system from the beginning and this time around, she took the win! Star Realms offers up a fast-paced round of intense fire power, building defense bases and outposts, all while battling in space. Initially the base game is just for two players, but you can purchase multiple copies of this game, adding two additional players with every purchased copy that you pick up, which is a really cool concept! There are multiple ways to achieve victory in this game, and like other deck-building games, you'll want to utilize the various factions based on the direction that you can see the game heading. Building multiple defense stations is a valuable technique, but there's different ways to tear those bases down quickly. You'll come up with various strategies based on who you're playing against at the table. This is probably one of the best portable games that I own. The artwork in this game is excellent! I love the amount of detail and vibrant colors on the cards and the mechanics combined with the theme of the game provides an excellent deck-building experience. If you love deck-building games, especially one as portable as this, then Star Realms is a definite must for your collection.
