Eighth Edition Core Game

The Eighth Edition Core Game was a 2-Player Starter Set, which was released as part the Eighth Edition Core Set.[1] It was a starter-level product that came in two versions: with or without a CD-ROM. The contents were very similar to the Seventh Edition/2-Player Starter Set.


Core game cards[]

The Eighth Edition Core Game contains seven cards that don't appear in Eighth Edition boosters. These cards are numbered S1/7 through S7/7, and they use the Eighth Edition expansion symbol. All of these cards are part of the Eighth Edition core set and are legal for play in all tournaments in which the Eighth Edition core set is legal.
