Those playmats look useful as well as cool

Enjoyed the play through, not sure if I’d get this yet, I’d want to see a few more games with differing packs, but saying that, if the price was right I’d most likely get one

The best part of KeyForge is that you can have tournaments at your local shop where everyone buys a deck and plays cold with no idea how well your deck plays. You have to figure it out as you go along. You can do in such a way that everyone plays at least 3 games so you if you nerf your first game, you have two more chances and still can win. I like it.

Oh my! I’m very excited with this game. I enjoyed the “unique” idea. I hope this mechanic works well

This is different! Buying new decks might be additive.

I am intreagued with this game as I suck at deck building, but play CCGs pretty good.

Intrigued by this. From a wallets perspective, I like the idea of just having one deck of cards that you cannot add to.
Caveat ahoy:
Price of entry will be “key”, new deck to better suit play style trial and error (buy a deck see if you like it if not buy another)?

That seems pretty intuitive. Not something I’d get hugely into as I prefer minutures and/or narrative games but there seems no harm in having a deck or two to be able to play a pickup game here and there. Looks like it’d be easy to pick up and play.

Very interested in the unique pick up and play deck. Not sure I like those playmats, a bit too busy for me, I prefer plain mats so you can properly see the cards.

Im not really a card player so my opinion might not carry much weight, but compared to Lightseekers that was a very long dry and boring playthrough. It was lack an Az though.
