Hi to all,

I played five games with different opponents always with the starter deck and always with the same result: MacCain wins

I would like to know if this is only coincidence. Is the game unbalanced? any similar experience?

have you read through rest of this forums ... seems like most people have had better luck with obama. but you are using the starter decks and are experienced playing against what seems to be new people, so you should have an advantage. if you aren't playing against new people, why are you using starter decks still if worrying about play balance?

And everytime I've played with the starter decks Obama wins. Honestly I wouldn't start worrying about game balance before you've gotten hand of the regular drafting-version since the starter decks are close to identical.

Just because i have played against new opponents in all my 5 games, we played with starter decks and i dont worry about balance, i enjoyed all 5 plays, only i wish to know other gamer`s experience

I have only played once with the starter decks and it was a blowout for Obama.

That's really interesting. At Orccon, I played a game and watched two others with the starter decks and saw McCain win all 3.
I was assuming the decks were identical. Is that the case?

Identical but for the swap of Defense and Economy.

We played our first game yesterday, McCain won in the end, but it was pretty close.

My experience was the opposite.

But the starter decks are essentially identical, they should be balanced.

If theyre balanced, and 32 people of even skill level play each other, one should experience McCain going 5-0...

McCain has won 6 of 10 for us. I won with him last night, so if Obama had won, our series would be even right now. Only the first game used the suggested starting cards.
