New Player Decks

Are you having issues getting started with Star Trek Adversaries and unsure how to put together a first deck?  Well the below will help new players get more familiar with the game without the deck construction portion getting discouraging.

These decks have a good balance of crew to ship ratio, a good play curve, and they use a variety of effects to help new players grow accustomed to the game and the specific mechanics.  They include a bit of everything to see what you like.  There are lists available below to import into the game for both Federation and Klingon

These lists are a good starting point for everyone. Just keep in mind that because it only uses basic cards that there is room for improvement. Obviously, you’ll want to upgrade cards as your collection grows, but it’s a bit better than the basic deck you start with and have a nice spread of cards so there’s more variety for new players.

Also, some of the basic cards in there could probably be doubled up, but I’ll leave it to you to figure out which.  Half this game is about thinking critically about what works and what doesn’t. Much of the fun of the game is playing around with different combinations to find the ones that work for you.

    I would actually recommend telling new players which cards to double up and why. While there might be an aversion to netdecking, ultimately many new players will be new to CCGs in general and actually do need a bit of handholding. Think of it as training wheels so that a player can figure out how to pilot the deck, and thus why it has certain cards, before they move on to experimenting.
