Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga

Product Info

Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga is a turn-based online strategy board game of space combat, destiny and power politics. Players use special decks of cards that represent the assets and abilities of their favorite alien races, bringing them to life and offering players the opportunity to customize their gameplay. With hundreds of different cards and multiple victory conditions, the number of strategies you can develop is endless. You can conquer your enemy's home world for a military victory, unearth ancient alien artifacts for a cultural win, or double-cross your way to a political victory at the Star Chamber. Cards include game elements such as special ships, heroes, politicians, and special alien technologies. The game models intrigue, economic planning, colonization, and both space and ground combat through both board and card game mechanics. With numerous maps to choose from you will never experience the same game twice in Star Chamber!

This new edition contains 2 single player campaigns as well as a tutorial campaign, 2 starter decks (or 6 booster packs), 5 Atok Incident boosters, 5 event passes, and 5 exclusive promo cards only available when you purchase the Matrix Games edition.  For only $29.99 from the Matrix Online Store, the total value of the starter decks, booster packs, and event passes comes to $31.95 and that doesn’t include the value of the single player campaigns or the 5 special promo cards.  The new Atok Incident, which is launching along with The Harbinger Saga, contains over 300 brand new cards to further increase the number of strategies in the already robust Star Chamber catalog.

Deaf Gamers: 85%
Like any strategy game worth its salt, the more you play the game the more you appreciate its complexities.... there's a decent amount of [single player] content to sink your teeth into, which is always pleasing.

Computer Games Magazine- 5 Stars!
As a pure strategy game, this is one of the very best.

Hard Gamers - 84%
(Translated from French)Finally, I must acknowledge I was surprised by Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga. The play succeeds in mixing much strategy into a card deck as well as an interesting universe... In short, if you seek a turn based strategy mixed with a Magic style card deck, this game is an excellent choice.
