Star Realms Gambit – The Verdict


Gambit is the first electronic expansion for star realms. They really hit it out of the park with Star Realms. It’s a great great game and works so well electronically.

Gambit on the other hand is a minor enhancement. It adds a little but not a huge amount to a the base game. It’s certainly not essential to your enjoyment of the game

I’ve had it for a few weeks now and it’s fun but really compared to what you get for your money with the base game it’s small beer. I’ve waited a few weeks before I gave my opinion and it hasn’t changed.


Star realms itself is a stupendous game, it’s so much more than the sum of its parts. Gambit doesn’t add enough to recommend it. If you’ve had your fill of vanilla star realms then it could be worth a look. If you’re a die hard fan chances are you’ve already in game purchased it and are now wondering what you could have done with that 3.99 you burnt

There’s another few expansions coming down the tracks and those I’m looking forward to. Until then don’t bother, just like octodad it’s a damp squid…..
