Fantasy Flight caused quite a stir with the announcement of KeyForge, their unique card game where every deck in existence will be different from all the others. Players at Gen Con had a chance to check it out, but what about the rest of us? In this preview, we get a look at how the game actually works, so you can check it out for yourself.
From the website:
You are an Archon. Renowned and respected across the diverse artificial planet of the Crucible, you are nonetheless cursed with ignorance of your own existence. The Architects have harvested countless worlds to supply your world, bringing creatures, artifacts, and sometimes entire cultures across the stars to form their unique wonderland. With no obvious means to return home, many of those brought to the Crucible look to you for guidance and leadership, but how can you lead others when your own path is a mystery?
The key to discovering the secrets of your origin and the knowledge of the Crucible is hidden within countless Vaults, scattered throughout the planet. If you gain entry to these Vaults, you will absorb their full wisdom and strength, but you are not the only one who seeks this power. Rival Archons seek this same knowledge, and they are not likely to walk away without a fight. When your clashes begin, you must draw upon the power of your team, relying on their unique skills to stave off your enemy as you gather enough Æmber to forge three keys and open the Vault.
Today, we offer you a closer look at these chaotic clashes as we examine the gameplay found in KeyForge: Call of the Archons, the world's first Unique Deck Game!
