Looking to buy just one of these as I only want to play 2 player. From reading some forum posts, people generally believe Colony Wars to be a more balanced game, but is it the preferred base game experience?

Thanks.

I much prefer the base game over Colony Wars. I either play the base game alone or play big Star Realms (base game, Colony Wars plus a few expansions and promos).

I would recommend playing the base game (for free) in the app a dozen or so times and then getting Colony Wars. The base game is easier to learn, the powerful cards are more clearly powerful, and the strategies are a bit more straight forward. Colony Wars has a couple more mechanics and the powerful ships and abilities are weaker.

I also prefer base game better. The factions are not as balanced, but I like the speed of base game better.
