Let me start by saying I'm a huge Lotr LCG player. Deck building not a problem. I play it mainly solo but sometimes with a friend or two. I have bought all the expansions for that game which really adds up.... Anyway, as much as I love lotr, I enjoy playing other various board/card games. I thought about getting another lcg to play a 2 player game with a friend. I think I'm might pick up star wars. I would only be able to play it a couple weekends a month, so considering that, I don't want to go spend loads of money and get tons of expansions for a game I won't be playing a ton. I've done some research on the rest of the LCG's and Star Wars seems to be the easiest game to buy without being super serious about it. We will be serious when we do play the game but we just won't be competing in tourney's and competitive play. Just a weekend game day.
What should I buy to have fun with a friend and play maybe 4 consecutive games once every couple weeks? I know when I tell people what to buy for Lotr, It's hard not to give them a whole big list of things to buy. I want to stay cheap here though. I can get a core at Coolstuff for $26.99, $19.99 for a deluxe box, and $9.99 for a Force Pack. I want to spend no more than $60. I hear many people say, "You must get two cores to actually have a good experience playing the game". Considering how often I will play, is this true? I hate to buy more than one core...I didn't for Lotr and I get along perfectly fine. But for Star wars, is buying two cores a must?
I was thinking Core + Edge of Darkness would be perfect. I probably wouldn't buy any more after that for a long while. But do you think I should just get two cores and play with that? Or two cores AND edge of darkness?
In other words, what would be the cheapest option to play Star Wars casually with a friend a few times a month?
