This may have been pointed out already but with 43 forum pages I haven't found it yet; does anyone else find themselves calling their Scouts "Astrotrain" with the resemblance between them and the G1 transformer....?

Takes me back to Saturday mornings watching robots smash each other to pieces then finding out the toys did a remarkable job of replicating that by also breaking into many pieces.

Absolutely loving this game. I'm a big fan of deckbuilders and can't believe how much of one they've crammed into such a tiny box. Hats off to the designers, it's a remarkable game and highly addictive. I've even got the web app, which is something I never do as I generally prefer the tactile feel of actual cards and pieces, but this one is great.

No, but I refer to the Explorers as "Exploders", you purchase them and promptly blow them up when they come into play.

I'm going to have to steal that name. Very fitting!

You are not alone in thinking that. Also when I was a kid I asked for a Starscream and got Astrotrain instead so now I scrap scouts first no matter what.

Whenever I say that I want to play this game I call it "Star Blazers" instead of "Star Realms".

Glad to see someone does that. Exploders don't last long in my deck.
