White Wizard Games LLC, the company created by veteran Magic: The Gathering players Darwin Kastle and Rob Dougherty (developer and co-founder of the Ascension deckbuilding game) announced a new Kickstarter campaign for their new physical and digital deck-building game, Star Realms.

· Easy to Learn: Unique design is fun for new players and for veterans.
· Portable: Entire game can fit into your jacket pocket.
· Combat Game: You win by attacking your opponent.
· Expandable: For multiplayer games, just add an additional set for every 2 extra players in the game.
