i love the fact that each deck is completely unique, with its own custom name and archon/cardback. me and my Co-workers are getting into this game and so far it is a blast!
What I think of it: I really like the game. It's mechanically simple, but there's enough interaction between the cards in your deck that there's plenty of meaningful decisions. It's refreshing to have a game like this that isn't about pummeling your opponent down to 0 health. None of the games I've played so far have been blowouts; even starting off really strong is no guarantee of a win, so there's a nice dramatic arc as tension steadily increases but neither player is completely down & out. How does it compare to other card games: With the small deck size, mechanical simplicity, and the little pride in knowing that my deck truly is my deck with a unique name & composition, I can definitely see this a replacing Magic as my 'carry around a deck everywhere' game, but it won't replace Magic or any other game in my collection. As fun as it can be to assemble a deck as creative expression, it's so nice to not have to worry about how good your deck-building skills are, whether your opponent's deck is based on the same gentlemen's rules as yours (re: fun/competitive, netdecking/homebrew, money spent). KeyForge is simply about playing the game, not who can design/buy the best deck and using matches to test the design. I like that it can be such a straightforward & inexpensive buy-in. Buy a single deck, read the rules from the FF website, and grab some tokens from your collection; you're now ready to play. There's no question about which product(s) to buy when you're just starting, or dependent on whether you plan on playing competitively or just casually. The starter set is nice and worth it if you're the person in your group who teaches new games to everyone else, but it's not a requirement. Be aware that individual decks do not come with rules, so you will have to download the rulebook from the website. My deck names: Dr. Mikvorp Auric (Mars/Shadow/Brobnar).. and Data-Driven Symphony of the Spaceport (Logos/Sanctum/Untamed).
