Star Realms is a spaceship combat deckbuilding game designed by Magic: The Gathering Pro Tour Champions and Hall of Famers Darwin Kastle and Rob Dougherty. Play powerful ships, destroy enemy bases, or blast your opponent directly on your way to victory!
In Star Realms, your empire is under attack and it’s up to you to defend it! Star Realms is a fast paced deck-building card game of outer space combat. It combines the fun of a deck-building game with the interactivity of Trading Card Game style combat. As you play, you make use of Trade to acquire new Ships and Bases from the cards being turned face up in the Trade Row from the Trade Deck. You use the Ships and Bases you acquire to either generate more Trade or to generate Combat to attack your opponent and their bases. When you reduce your opponent’s score (called Authority) to zero, you win!
The core two player Star Realms deck is all you need to start your galactic adventure. It contains a rule book together with 128 beautifully illustrated cards (80 trade deck cards, 10 Explorer ships, two 10 card decks for each player to start with, and 18 double-sided score cards) in a compact cardboard box.
Star Realms is recommended for 2 players (purchase additional copies for up to 6 player-multiplayer games), ages 13 and up.
