There is a fact which I suppose should be emphasized more: History of War is NO classical TradingCardGame. In HoW there are no rarities which make other cardgames so money-draining. In HoW you EVER know which cards are in each set you are purchasing and so you only need to buy each set four times - and then you own all the cards of the edition four times. No more booster grabbing and searching for the Tiger I or Pershing or the Yamato! Each set is visible on the website of HoW in details:

or just

I know, there are many players out there who love the booster-grabbing-and-searching-for-the-holy-grail-feeling. But HoW is for players who have limited money available and who want to know what the hell they are purchasing.

Well said.

History of War is about the GAME not "collecting."

Why should I buy each set four times? Can't I just buy one set of each? I am considering to buy this game and this phrase makes me wonder now.

Right, you only need four packs of one set if you want to play with the standard-play-format "Strategy". At the beginning just purchase the africa box or simply one set of the axis african starter and one set of the allies african starter. These sets are well balanced and make really fun to get started into HoW. If you like the game you can expend it by buying more and other sets - but you always now what you will get

So is the Africa the way to go for novices?

Or should I get an Axis and an Allies starter plus boosters?
