If you’ve played Star Realms or Hero Realms, you know that they are great deck building games with direct conflict and multiple ways to play. While both have similar rules, their unique settings set each other them apart. At Origins 2022, I spoke with Rob Dougherty about their upcoming Star Realms Kickstarter campaign, Rise of Empire. They also just released the Hero Realms app, which is free to download and gives you the ability to play the game without any kind of purchase. You can find out more about both in the video above.

While not working as a Database Administrator, Keith Schleicher has been associated with Gaming Trend since 2003. While his love of video games started with the Telestar Alpha (a pong console with four different games), he trule started playing video games when he received the ill-fated TI-99/4A. While the Speech Synthesizer seemed to be the height of gaming, eventually a 286 AT computer running at 8/12 Hz and a CGA monitor would be his outlet for a while. Eventually he’d graduate to 386, 486, Pentium, and Athlon systems, building some of those systems while doing some hardware reviews and attending Comdex. With the release of the Dreamcast that started his conversion to the console world. Since then he has acquired an NES, SNES, PS2, PS3, PSP, GBA-SP, DS, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One S, Gamecube, Wii, Switch, and Oculus Quest 2. While not playing video games he enjoys bowling, reading, playing board games, listening to music, and watching movies and TV. He originally hails from Wisconsin but is now living in Michigan with his wife and sons.
