Has anyone here played Star Realms? It's a deckbuilding game with a spaceship theme.

I've not played many deckbuilding games before (either like Magic, where you build your deck and then play, or like Dominion, where you build your deck during play), but this game hooked me right away.

A guy I work with gave me a few games one lunchtime. It's very fast to learn and to play. I was able to pick up the game in the space of 5-10 minutes and we got through 3 games in about 90 minutes. Now that I've played half a dozen times, 3 games probably take 60 minutes or less.

Dominion didn't grab me immediately, but I ordered a copy of this game the day after I played it for the first time. It's not super-deep in regards to strategy but, at the same time, play time is so quick that it lets you try out a number of different strategies in a short period of time. If your strategy doesn't work out you've only wasted 20 minutes.

Definitely recommend.

I have a couple decks of the game and tried to get the Australia importers - Good Games to get in the 2 official expansions for it - Crisis and Gambit. They did not even know they could get them in. A few months later I talked to one of their higher reps at a gaming convention and he said he would look into getting them.
