After playing L5R, Carl and I continued our CCG fun with two-and-a-half games of On the Edge. Carl mistakenly assumed that the OtE "starters" were pre-constructed decks, but it was obvious after about half a game that they were, in fact, just randomly inserted 60-card packs with no rhyme or reason. With so much of the game relying on synergy between cards with the same keywords -- and especially with many cards with bulleted cost indicating that they can ONLY be played when they share a keyword with a Character or Resource you already have in play -- it was apparent that we should take a few minutes and try to make SLIGHTLY more focused decks and try again. So we split up our decks and sort of traded some things between the two, consolidating Aries cards in one deck, for example, while sending Fringe stuff to the other.

In the end, these two decks were much more functional and the games played were fairly close, if a little crude due to the still-clunky deck construction. But we both had a really good time and we got at least one, "Holy crap! Are you guys playing On the Edge?" from a nearby table, which was cool. We'll both head home and work on better decks for our next session.

P.S.-- This is a session report. Yes, a quick sketch. Sorry it's not where it ought to be. Don't feel obligated to thumb it or award GG. Neither was ever my intention.
