With hundredsStar Chamber is a turn-based online strategy board game of space combat and diplomacy, combining production, research and diplomacy in a hybrid board and card game design. Players use special decks of cards that represent the assets and abilities of their favorite alien races. With hundreds of different cards and three victory conditions, the number of strategies you can develop is endless. The Harbinger Saga is the second block of Star Chamber cards. The Atok Incident is the first of the three Harbinger Saga sets and features 300 cards of all races and tech. All new mechanics like Conquerors and activated abilities add new strategies and dynamics while familiar faces like General Nargha and Professor Hernandez return in new versions. In 2006, the Descent and Maelstrom sets will add over 300 more cards to complete the block. [Matrix Games] Expand

    Star Chamber freshens up the CCG genre by blending traditional card play with a strategic game of planetary conquest. [Mar 2006, p.85]
  2. Fans of collectible card games will find it easy to pick up the basics, and fans of the strategy genre can dive right into the combat system without trouble. The graphics are a little below average.

    Only the most commited turn-or card-based strategy gamers will enjoy , which is a real shame, because with better online help(there's no manual)and a more fleshed-out tutorial, this game could have appealed to a wider audience. [July 2006, p.97]
