The game changes in powerful ways with a new type of card — the Gambit. There are nine of them, and each player is given two of them at random to begin the game. When do you use your Gambits? When do you make your move? The wars continue, and now the stakes are even higher!
Chance is a word void of sense; nothing can exist without a cause. – Voltaire
For a good fleet commander, everything is an opportunity…and at times of war the law falls silent. Take every advantage you can with Gambits, the first expansion for the award-winning Star Realms Deckbuilding Game.
Gambit cards are dealt face down to players at the beginning of the game. You choose each number of Gambits every player will get (usually two), or you can give fewer Gambit cards to some players as a handicap. Players keep their Gambit cards face down in front of them until they choose to reveal them. Players may reveal Gambits at the start of the game or during their main phase. To reveal a Gambit, turn it face up. When a Gambit is revealed, you get powerful one-time or continuous abilities that can help lead you to victory.
