You can easily play with just the contents of the Starter, but with even just 1 booster the game really starts coming to life. Currently I think I have picked up 2 or maybe 3 boosters, actually only 2, and I have a really decent sized army.

I think you can only use up to 15 units or something like that, so with 12 I am fairly close to the limit, and I have 4 buildings which is a good start too. I think all that is just about $60 Canadians, and like I said, you can easily play with just the starter.

I'm just starting up too. I have a pair of starters and 6 unit boosters headed my way in the mail... my patience is being tested pretty heavily. :(

What you can use in a game:

Minimums:
1 Monster (Alpha + Hyper)
2 Buildings
4 Units

Maximums:
2 Monsters (Alpha + Hyper)
12 Buildings (no more than 5 of the same type)
15 Units (5 max Elites, no more than 5 of same type)

You get the minimums with a single Starter Box, add 1 building and 4 units per booster and you build up quickly. You can use units from any faction but spawning costs of units not of your monster's faction are higher so focusing on a single faction is encouraged if not required if you plan on playing tourneys and such.

I just want a fun game to inflict on my family and friends. :) So I'm not going to worry too much about it. I figure 32 units, 10 buildings and 2 monsters should provide a nice selection for fun games. And I can always add more as funds and opportunity warant.

you may not want to grab 2 starters unless your planning on getting one for someone else. you really only need 1 starter, then after that boosters away; mainly unit.
