Keyforge has mostly killed Hero Realms for me. Casual Magic: The Gathering and Shards of Infinity have survived.

KeyForge has stolen quite a bit of my attention away from Star Realms and Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game. And certainly has me thinking much longer about any board games I might back.

Ah...I should have had Star Realms on the LCG list. That's a good one. I only played it digitally (same with Magic actually).

I was thinking about half the hype/interest in KeyForge was just associated with the name of the designer...lots of "Nones" though so it seems like it's bringing in a lot of people who haven't played collectibles.

I count Hearthstone as a CCG pretty much. Although I wouldn't say KF replaced it but boardgames in general replaced it.

I play Star Realms quite a bit with coworkers. If KF had an app, then I could see Star Realms being replaced by KF.

I haven't played with my physical copy of Star Realms in a long time because I've got Keyforge and board games.

I think the lack of deck construction makes keyforge easier to get into for board game players. I am not at all interested in any LCGs or TCGs. Star Realms and Keyforge feel more like board games to me (if that makes sense).

My group alternates between keyforge and shards of infinity as well! most of the time depends on the number of people that show up but we have dabbled inn 3 player keyforge haha. shards is quite a different game so keyforge won't be replacing that one at my table.

In your world, I have another name. You must learn to know me by it. That was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.

My desire to play Keyforge has eclipsed my desire to play most anything else at the moment. I have mostly been a board-gamer and traditional card games player. Zero CCGs or LCGs. I would never have pegged Star Realms as an LCG, but I enjoy Star Realms and other similar deck-building games. I really cannot say whether Keyforge could replace something I haven't played, but if I could only have one game to play, I don't think it would be Keyforge...despite being what I most want to be playing atm.

Though there was a bit of a delay (I quit L5R months before this came out) it as certainly filled the competitive LCG gap that I was seeking. Most of my casual L5R crew has converted (more or less) over to Keyforge.

Keyforge can't replace any competitive CCG/LCG for me. I honestly don't think the game suits competitive play well.

For casual play though, it's excellent.

The collectable games I was into was more minis. I played Heroclix, X-Wing, and Dice Masters.

Wings of Glory killed both of these for me as I was burnt out on list-building games. Or rather games where the game was won based on what you built in your list. Then metas develop and you keep seeing the same darn lists every day at the venues.

But once I saw that a collectable game didn't have to be a money pit and didn't have to be won based on money or how you built your team, but rather your skill, Keyforge popped out to me immediately.

So I think I'm done with any collectable games that makes you buy stuff to be better. I think we are only going to see more games like WoG and KF.

Interesting. When I entered NONE for all the poll options, I thought it would be a small percentage of answers. Looks like I'm not alone in coming to Keyforge because of the pre-built nature of the decks.

I own some LCGs, but as I only own the base game each I didn't count them as "living"

I would assume this↑ as well (having no experience with CCGs/LCGs). Competitive Keyforge is a bit of a grab bag experience, and has thus far been less enjoyable than playing casually. You just can't know how to prepare for what you'll face. Even if you could know your opponent's deck before selecting your own, you may not even own a deck that's likely to beat it.

Agreed. For casual play, it's fantastic!
