Absolutely! The game has been designed to please both players who want a standalone product, and those who love collecting and expanding. The core game is for those who don't like the prospect of buying randomised boosters, but still want the fun of playing Oligarchy with 2-4 players. The cards in the core set come from all 8 factions and give a fun and balanced play experience and can be played and rearranged until your heart's content. The players who love collecting and expanding their decks can enjoy busting open the booster packs and expanding their Oligarchy universe. By having something for both player types we feel we have something for everyone.
