Another way to achieve allied greatness!
Sometimes you want to make sure your powerful ships invoke their allied powers... Being able to buy a leader and have it put into play immediately with the flexibility to use it right then or any later round. Really nice thematically and of course.. the gameplay is great and comborific!

Adds Yet Another Flavorful Touch to Star Realms
Star Realms is a fun, inexpensive, lightweight deck builder, and is a lot of fun right out of the starter box. Several small expansion exist for the game, however, and the Crisis wave of expansions offers a few separate additions. The Crisis: Heroes Set adds individual heroes for each faction, each wielding a unique, one time bonus for the player at a time of his choosing. The Heroes are mixed into the deck, cost only 1 Resource to purchase, and are put into play immediately rather than into your discard pile. There they stay, until called upon.

As with the other expansions, this expansion set does not make or break Star Realms, but adds just another light touch of interest to the game. Star Realms is a lightweight game, and fairly short, so the expansions wisely insert only small (but effective) changes.

At its price point, Star Realms is an easy game to get into, and adding the expansions like the Gambit Set is really not much of a question. If you have Star Realms, grab this. If you are buying Star Realms, you can't go wrong grabbing this with it, although you may decide to just work with the core set for a few plays first, just to become familiar with the base game play.

And then add all the Crisis goodies.
