Star Realms status update

Posted by Robert Dougherty (Creator)

Hello backers,

We've been busy getting Star Realms ready, but thought now would be a good time to update you on our progress. 

The games are printed and the promo cards and playmats have been submitted to the printer. It is going to be tight and we need to pay to air-ship product from China to make it happen, but we are currently still on schedule to have your rewards in hand by Christmas. 

It has been a lot of hard work, but we are very pleased with the results. Check out the Kickstarter exclusive promo card:

 You can see more card previews here:

Thank you again for all your support! Soon you'll be blasting your opponents to smithereens!

      I opted for the PNP files and still haven't received mine. Is there a reason for this?

      What about the PNP files? A lot of backers are playing the physical copies. Please!

      (If it were up to me, I would have said "you choose the color" - since that's what you do when you play the Merc. Still a good thing for the players, but not a freebie)

      FYI - On BGG the answer given was that there is no effect when the Merc ship is drawn.

      Question on the Merc ship... sorry for asking this in so many places (it's mainly for the benefit of everyone else in each thread):
      What happens in the Co-op challenge if the Merc ship is flipped up? Do the players choose the effect of the Nemesis/Pirates? Is there no effect? Do you scrap it and draw again?

      Got mine today!! Excellent job guys, everything looks great!

      Awesome flavor! Merc Cruiser's flexability seems bonkers good, enabling me to draft a "goodstuff" build on top of supporting a single faction when I go deep. My initial thought is that the cruiser will be the glue that turns greedy decks from clunky to insane. It's also worth noting that it one-shots most of the "lower-teir" bases initially spoiled without having to meet a pre-defined condition (i.e. playing a previous card of the same faction).

      If this doesn't get y'all excited, I don't know what will.

      +1 for the ETA on PNP files, and I'd like to know if we have also the year 1 promo set inside :)

      But thanks for the update. :)

    13. kc2dpt on

      I am in no hurry to get my game.

    14. Viktor Csete on

      What is the ETA of the PNP files? Did I missed something or we have to wait toll the physical copies arrived?

      I for one would be fine with waiting if shipping them by air proved to be too costly. I wouldn't want you guys to lose money on such an awesome project!

      Awesome news! I know that flying product can't be cheap. I just want to let you know that it's very much appreciated. I've got friends coming home and I plan on playing this with them during our annual 5 day board game marathon.
