Hello

I know there were few similar subject but time goes on and knowledge grows

I am not a deck building gamer. I can say not even card gamer. I like few card games and really love just one : Imperial Settlers.

But I need some Star Wars game in my collection and this one appeals the most.

I am planning to buy just one core set. I am not interested in deck building. Just casual play with friend.

Which of deluxe expansions would you recommend to boost the game in the best way ?

I know one allows to play with 3/4 players. I dont think I need it. What about other ones ?

For a deluxe expansion, I would highly recommend Star Wars: The Card Game – Edge of Darkness, as it "completes" the core set by adding the rest of the Smugglers and Spies and Scum and Villainy affiliations.

Star Wars: The Card Game – Balance of the Force allows for up to four players, but the general consensus is it doesn't really add much to the core game if only two people will be playing.

The final deluxe expansion, Star Wars: The Card Game – Between The Shadows is designed to expand upon the Jedi and Scum and Villany affiliations, so it would make sense to get Edge of Darkness first before picking this one up.

If you haven't already, check out the Star Wars LCG Objective Sets first to get a better feel for what's out there, if you don't mind the card "spoilers".

Have fun!

The first expansion I would buy is Edge of Darkness. It will complete the starter decks for the Scum and Villainy and Smugglers and Spies affiliations.

Star Wars is pretty unique for a CCG-type game in that deck building can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it. The objective set system really does make it very approachable.

For casual play, I would just get Edge of Darkness. Between the Shadows is a fantastic expansion, but I would say that if you bought it, it would be mostly to build new decks. The Core + EoD are perfectly balanced within themselves and you would have 6 decks to choose from (3 on each side).
