Backstory Cards: Distant Worlds $1.99
Publisher: Galileo Games

So I had already purchased the original Backstory Cards, which seemed pricey but were pretty decent in play. Since I'm currently running a space opera game using Uncharted Worlds, I thought I'd try these.

There are fifteen new cards, a two-page PDF. For a $5.00 price point, I'd have thought there'd be more meat. The cards themselves are OK, but not that amazing or creative. This is a $1.99 product at best. I see now that they've marked down the price on the physical deck + PDF to $5.00, which might still be high, but does me no good. As it is, I feel ripped off. Caveat emptor.

My recommendation is to skip this one and any other Backstory Card supplements at this price point.

Hi Blake,

Thanks for your review. It looks like we made a mistake in pricing the extension cards' PDF. I'm fixing that now in the DTC system, and I'd like to make it up to you. I'll send you a refund, or a copy of the physical cards. Your choice. Just send a note to
