Star Realms Challenge #1
2017

After attaining Hero status in numerous sectors for defeating Pirates, Nemesis Beasts, Shadows and Replicators you have retired to the Mentaline sector where you are largely unknown.
The Mentaline sector is full of Blob worlds with massive Orbital factories and even some colony worlds on the outer rim.
Unfortunately some of the new Breed of Nemesis Beast have been hiding in this sector, waiting for the opportunity to emerge.
One of them is heading directly to you and your home ...

Can you defend the Sector?
Will you be able to defeat this Nemesis Beast?



Your Challenge is to play the Nemesis Beast Scenario.
Note there are a few new rules for play and scoring:

Choose a Blob Card from the Trade Deck of value 4 or less before you shuffle the deck and lay out the trade row.
Add it to your Personal Deck before shuffling.

The Value of the card, is the number of turns that a trade embargo is in play.
During the embargo all Blob Cards cost one less than the marked Value. Yes, Value 1 Cards are FREE!
All other Faction Cards cost one more than the marked value.
Faction-less cards like the Explorer or Merc Destroyer cost their normal value.
When the embargo ends, all card costs return to their marked values.

New Breed Rule
The Value of the Card also determines the starting Authority of the Nemesis Beast.
The starting Authority is equal to 50 plus 4X the Value of the Card.
e.g. If you start with a Blob Destroyer (4) then the starting Authority is 66.
e.g. If you start with a Battle Pod (2) then the starting Authority is 58.

You may also use the following expansions:
Star Realms: Colony Wars
Crisis: Bases and Battleships
Crisis: Fleets and Fortresses

Your final score is your Authority minus the Nemesis Beast's Authority at the end of the Game.

Post your results in the following format:
Card: Blob Destroyer
Score: -24
W/L: Loss
Embargo: 4

Gave the Challege two tries on this lazy Monday as I wait for the Rose Bowl this evening. I chose my Blob cards randomly.

1st Game
Card: Blob Destroyer
Score: 11
W/L: Win
Embargo: 4
NBAuth: 66
Rounds: 10

There were a bunch of Blob cards available during the Embargo rounds, so I was able to stock up on some good combat values. My final attack was for 26.

2nd Game
Card: Blob Fighter
Score: -26
W/L: Loss
Embargo: 1
NBAuth: 54
Rounds: 11

This one was a more typical session. Only having one Embargo round doesn't give you much to go on. I might have had one Hail Mary chance at the end, but the Beast drew a Machine Cult card causing me to discard a 5-strength outpost. If I could have played that, I would have had one more chance to take it down.

Thanks for the Challenge, Shaun! It was fun.

Huzzah, a new year; a new Star Realms challenge! Thank you!

Unfortunately, I couldn't get a win today (and as you can see, no lack of trying!). The embargo never seemed to help me - the Blobs wouldn't show up until after the embargo was over, and to help the Nemesis Beast destroy my bases!

This was a fun addition to the base rules—thanks for setting this up, Shaun.

The embargo didn't help me much, since for the first few rounds the trade row was mostly made up of super expensive cards. I also wasn't great at setting up any defenses, and the combos I set up never seemed to come out together. Net result = a loss.

Card: Ravager
Score: 12
W/L: Win
Embargo: 3
NBAuth: 62
Rounds: 8

I'm not sure if I calculated the score correctly. I had 5 left and hit him for 18 when he had 11. So he'd be at -7 to my 5. That's 12, right?

Loved my first challenge - not only because it's a win but because it adds more replayability to this game!

Edit: I forgot to add that I got REALLY lucky during the embargo, because I think I picked up 6/7 blob ships/bases during this time. That's why I grabbed the ravager as well - he could scrap 2 cards from the trade row and I picked up a couple blobs that way.

I've played a bunch of Star Realms, but not much against the Nemesis Beast. This was a fun challenge! I think I'll go check out the back catalog.

1st Game
Card: Battle Pod
Score: -31
W/L: Loss
Embargo: 2
NBAuth: 58
Rounds: 10

I got wrecked. It was humbling.

2nd Game
Card: Trade Pod
Score: -14
W/L: Loss
Embargo: 2
NBAuth: 58

I split too early and added scrapping too late.

3rd game
Card: Trade Pod
Score: -7
W/L: Loss
Embargo: 2
NBAuth: 58
Rounds: 11

Much better game. Picked up 3 blob cards in the first two rounds. Went heavy blue with some lucky purchases. Split into yellow later for deck cycling and damage.

I wanted to give it another go with the Blob Wheel. Much better.

4th game
Card: Blob Wheel
Score: 19
W/L: Win
Embargo: 3
NBAuth: 62
Rounds 14

Starting with a base seems like a strong choice in Nemesis.

Haven't taken part in these (or played Star Realms) for a while so not expecting much here.

1st Game
Card: Trade Pod
Score: -23
W/L: Loss
Embargo: 2
NBAuth: 58
Rounds: 12
Didn't start to do any damage until about the 6-7th round. Got very few bases built. No advantages gained from the trade embargo.

2nd Game
Card: Blob Destroyer
Score: -66
W/L: Loss
Embargo: 4
NBAuth: 66
Rounds: 13
I only managed to get one Blob card during the Embargo and though I got a few bases into play, every time I did he drew a blob card from the deck to destroy them. Never got much damage building up.

3rd Game
Card: Spike Pod
Score: -24
W/L: Loss
Embarg: 1
NBAuth: 54
Rounds: 10
With only 1 round of a trade embargo I was fortunate to pick up a Blob Carrier but couldn't capitalise on it, but at least a bit closer.

4th Game
Card: Spike Pod
Score: -46
W/L: Loss
Embarg: 1
NBAuth: 54
Rounds: 10
No advantage with the trade embargo and failed to get any bases, just seemed to be stuck with low point cards and couldn't develop the deck.

5th Game
Card: Battle Pod
Score: -43
W/L: Loss
Embarg: 1
NBAuth: 58
Rounds: 11
Trade row was just full of high value cards which I couldn't do much with to start. Killed before hand started to get decent.

6th Game
Card: Blob Fighter
Score: -27
W/L: Loss
Embarg: 1
NBAuth: 54
Rounds: 10
Pretty much as above. I used to know how to play this....or so I thought!

Edited 7 Jan:

Undeterred by my appalling losses I played a few more hands. I won't bother listing all of them, none of which were glorious in any shape or form other than the sheer number of them, up until the last two games.

Game X
Trade pod
Score: -11
W/L: Loss
Embargo: 2
NBAuth: 58
Rounds: 15

This was so close! I was doing quite well with a blob and trade federation deck getting authority back and doing some decent damage. At round 13 I had inflicted about 25 damage and the NB was down to about 13 authority left and I was confident I had enough authority over the next round or two to finally get a win. The next hand however was full of scouts and vipers - only a couple of damage done - but I still had 18 authority so he couldn't kill me unless he pulled a blob. Well guess what the next card was - no bases out so plus three damage for 18 damage in the 15th round and exactly enough to beat me. My next hand would have won me the game!

Game X+1
Cargo pod (colony wars)
Score: 9
W/L: WIN!!
Embargo: 3
NBAuth: 62
Rounds: 12

After failing to get very far with the standard Star Realms deck thought I would try this with Colony Wars and the Cargo Pod. Built a reasonable trade and machine cult deck supplemented with decent blob cards. It came down to the wire where I was going to lose that round but just had enough attack to defeat the NB.......finally.

I'm off to lie down in a darkened room until the next challenge.

PS: Thanks for doing this Shaun

I think I got 0 blob cards during the embargo. Luckily lots of cheap federation came up so I could do a lot of healing to balance out my no bases. This helped me last almost long enough to win - NB ended with 5 and hit me for 11 when I had 10. Almost had 'im!

Looks like we are losing the Mentaline sector. soblue

However it is great to see so many Commanders making the attempt.
I admit I thought there might be some ship card pattern to the winning battles, but you are all doing well with whatever you choose.
Well done! thumbsup

As a side note, my BGG subscription for this thread isn't working.
Sorry for any delays with updates, as I have to remember to manually check for new posts.

Overall: 1/5

Round 4: BOOM!!!!
Card: Trade Pod
Score: 60 (31 vs -29)
W/L: DOMINATION (win)
Embargo: 2
NB Auth: 58
Rounds: 10

It was the Command Ship to the rescue! That and the cutter kept me afloat restoring authority and allowing me to purchase some bigger ships. My last hand eventually gave me a total of 11 cards which produced 48 combat. The Nemesis Beast was annihilated. Below is my final turn. Tapped cards show they were trashed. The dice show a +3 combat due to its destroy base ability.

Gave this a whirl as it looked like fun!

Card: Trade Pod
Score: -6
W/L: Loss
Embargo: 2

Very close to a victory but had a terrible final draw. That coupled with no real early benefit from the trade embargo ensured my fate.

I will definitely be trying this again later after my kids go to bed!

The Nemesis Beast has beat me pretty badly in the past but I got a fortunate start in this one. I chose the Trade Pod and picked up the Hive at a discount on round 1. The Trade Pod came up in round 2 which allowed me to afford the Blob Carrier. I got both of those to come up together in round 4 to acquire a Battle Blob for free. That was about the best start I could hope for.

I got no discounts in the embargo as no blob cards were available even though I had money to spend. I ended up with a couple of bases and some cards that would synergize.

The best luck I had was NB kept flipping red faction so once my bases were up early NB couldn't hurt me. I had a couple destroy enemy base cards and some enemy discard cards so was able to max some attack and search through my deck getting a strong engine early. I hit the NB on back to back turns with 29 and then with 28 to end the game.I still had 37 authority to NB -12.
