10. Star Realms
This is a brand new game that resulted from a 2013 Kickstarter campaign. Star Realms is certain to test people’s brain power. A fast paced card game, Star Realms involves two players who take turns buying starships and space stations from a continually replenishing central play area. Over time, each player builds their own unique deck of cards and takes cards away from their opponent by bombarding their space stations, destroying their spaceships and diminishing their life points. This is an extremely fast game that keeps players on their toes. It is similar to some other deck-building card games such as Dominion—but with more firepower.
