I am new and I searched but did not see this in the forums. I have played so far four times (I know not a lot yet but I am working on that) and each time I have played a LS Jedi deck while my wife has played the DS Sith deck both straight out of the Core set. My wife has two out of four times gotten Vader out in the first turn which tipped the balance of the force to her because she made him a force thingy. Out of the other two games, it was two turns in and Vader was on the table. When he is there, he has been creaming my jedi. In fact, she won an edge battle on one, had a blaster on Vader and killed ObiWan Kenobi before I could even do anything. The one time that I did not see vader come out, I had issues drawing units which could have been the problem. But with her ability to seemingly get the balance on the dark side and gaining two Death Star spins a turn, I am cleaned up quickly.
So, what am I doing wrong? I am sure that the game, after all the development and play test, is not unbalanced. That means that I need to have some strategy that I am missing to help me have a chance. Either that or we are playing wrong.
While having my wife win makes her happy and I can get her to play more, I would love to have a fighting chance. Any advice would be appreciated.
