How will the game work?

Note: for up-to-date information on rules and how the game is played, please see the Learn to play section in the game client.

Suitcase & Card Pool

Before a game starts, each player creates a Suitcase full of 50 cards. When an opponent is matched, both suitcases are poured onto the table, creating the Card Pool. Both players will share the Card Pool during the game.

Starter Deck

Each player starts the game with only 5 cards (the Starter Set), taking 5 cards to their hand each turn. Whenever a turn is finished, you can choose to keep or discard the remaining hand cards, and up to 5 new cards are drawn. Thus, the Discard Pile is shuffled and becomes the Draw Pile again. The deck is played over and over again.


To create a stronger and deeply strategic deck, each turn a player is able to buy new cards from the River, putting them into their Discard Pile. The River takes six semi-random cards you can afford from the Card Pool and makes them available to buy.

Striking a balance between having a flexible deck and having a bloated deck is essential. Knowing how early-game cards will serve you in the late-game is crucial.

Synergy effects

You will gain Faction Points as you play. Faction Points will boost the level of your cards in play, potentially making them more powerful.

All Factions can be played together, and we encourage mixing Factions in your Deck and on the Battlefield.
