I'm very interested in this game but have two questions:

1. Are the contents of the Starter Set exclusive to that box? In other words, if I plan to get the Core set and the expansions should I still get the Starter set? The hero graphics on the Starter Set box front appears to be unique, but I want to be sure I'm not ordering something in duplicate.

2. Has anyone played more than 1v1, and if so how was it? I don't get a lot of chances for two player games so I'm definitely interested in the idea of 4+ players.

Thanks!

1. The starter set content is exclusive (except that it's also included in the Deluxe set) and the Finesse spec in particular is very popular in "deck"-building.

2. Sorry, haven't tried it myself.

If you plan to get everything you might be better off ordering the Deluxe set from Sirlin's website.

Loved it with 3 players. Lots more wiggle room and negotiation.

With Two-Headed giant, I imagine 4 players would be roughly the same speed as 3 players. I didn't play it, but I am fairly certain it's awesome based on the format.

I would guess that 5 players is probably slow and 3 hoursy. Might still be a blast if you're into an Emperor style MTG game.

For sure 2-4 players are really solid though.

Yeah. If you wanna multiplayer, get the Deluxe. Much cheaper.

There are a couple of other threads about multiplayer: this one on 3-player and this one on Two-Headed Dragon. I've only played 2HD, but I posted about my experiences of that in the latter thread. (But basically: It works very well.)
