Today White Wizard Games, the company created by Magic: The Gathering Hall of Famers Darwin Kastle and Rob Dougherty (developer and co-founder of the Ascension deckbuilding game), announced a Kickstarter campaign to launch their new Star Realms deckbuilding game. Their goal of raising $20,000 to fund the final stages of game production in order to get the game ready for the Holidays is well underway. With the campaign being live for only a few hours, Star Realms has raised $3000! It’s no wonder that anyone who might have heard of these Hall of Famers or even played Ascension themselves are clamoring to help get this game released!
The Kickstarter campaign finishes on November 2, 2013. Be sure to check out their Kickstarter Video below:

More About Star Realms
Star Realms is a fast paced deckbuilding card game of outer space combat. It combines the fun of a deckbuilding game with the interactivity of Trading Card Game style combat. As you play, you make use of Trade to acquire new Ships and Bases from the cards being turned face up in the Trade Row from the Trade Deck. You use the Ships and Bases you acquire to either generate more Trade or to generate Combat to attack your opponent and their bases. When you reduce your opponent’s score (called Authority) to zero, you win!
Star Realms will be available as a physical game in time for Christmas. The entire game fits in a deckbox, which makes it the perfect stocking stuffer. The game is also targeted for beta release on PC and Mac in March 2014.
