For those interested in other card games besides Magic (and Ascension), I’m currently helping out on a new deck-building game, Star Realms, designed by two Magic Hall of Famers — Robert Dougherty and Darwin Kastle.
To quote from the Kickstarter page: 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!

Hurry though, there are only two more days left before the Kickstarter ends!
