Welcome back to our previews of Star Trek [Deck Building Game] TNG Edition.
Today we are going to look at a few cards that are only as powerful as your ability to know what your opponent’s are up to. While it’s important to plan your turns out correctly and gain those key cards at the right moment to improve your deck on your way to victory, it is just as important to watch what your opponent are doing so you can make sure that your one step ahead of them. It isn’t always enough to just gain the best cards and optimize your deck, you sometimes need to get your hands a little dirty and sabotage your opponents.
Today’s previews are all cards that help you by messing with your opponents.
Here we have Par Lenor with an interesting effect that interacts with Starbase. His effect allows you to choose a card from Starbase that you would either like to save for yourself or simply keep out of the hands of your opponents.
Lwaxana Troi is a very powerful woman. Hopefully you have been paying attention to what your opponent’s have been gaining so you can make them lose that pinnacle card at the just the right moment to keep them from moving ahead of you. The fun part of this effect is even if you don’t guess correctly, you will peek at their hand and so will know for the future what are some of the cards in their deck. This can be combo’d well with other cards that affect the player’s hand, such as the next preview.
Sela has shown herself to be an expert strategist. Her effect allows her to plan ahead so you can be ready for what’s coming next. When your opponent’s about to drop that “Fire All Weapons”, you can play Sela and make them discard it.
You can also combo this card with other effects that let you see your opponent’s hand, such as Lwaxana, so you can be sure that they will be discarding a card.
Our last preview for today is not a card that messes with your opponent’s hand but instead messes with their head. Riker like to make his opponent’s sweat. Here you get to name any card in the game and choose an opponent who must then guess if you have the card or are just bluffing. When they guess incorrectly, you get to draw 2 cards and thus increase your potential for that turn.
Let us know what you thought of today’s previews and What you want to see in our upcoming previews. Stay tuned for more previews coming soon.
