I have given away a lot of cards trying to get people into the game over the years with little luck, must of been the fact they were Ocean’s Edge,this is pretty much when I shifted into just a hardcore collector.
Because OE is a bad set? I’ve found that despite giving stuff away, people need my initiation to play, period. If I don’t keep things up they’re not going to play on their own or teach anyone else, which is part of the reason I don’t give as much away anymore. Even the most “gamer” type person I’ve taught (who I think liked the game more than anyone else I’ve taught) gave their ships back to me when they left college and we wouldn’t be able to play anymore.
