Far more engaging than Paperback, to me. Hardback can allow for nearly as much gaming as spelling, which I like.

Fun word building game. Cool combos can be created with the genres. Ink and wild card rules are on point. I like the various game options like player powers and adverts, and of course co-op/solo is a plus. A little repetitive and the more expensive letters are difficult to obtain.

Rating is tentative and may go up with more plays, but it doesn't seem to quite hit the highs that Paperback did. Also it's longer. I'm torn because I prefer Star Realms/Ascension style chaining in deckbuilders over the Dominion style buys, but the combos in Hardback just aren't as interesting thus far. Having said that I do enjoy the game quite a bit. I'm just not sure it dethrones Paperback.

A bit longer and a bit more brain burny than I would want for a deckbuilder. Amazing design though.

The Star Realms + Scrabble mashup is an utter failure for a word game. It takes away the core skillset required (spelling good words) and replaces it with COMBOS! A weak game that rips off a game that already sucked to begin with.
