Love the fact that each deck is unique

If you are put off from other collectable card games because of the expense and time it takes building decks, try KeyForge instead. If you happen to get a good deck and learn to play it well, this could be all you need to compete against the best!

A unique game

Played several games of this now and have enjoyed it. The unique deck is a cleaver idea and provides a great low cost way to play a competitive card game. I played magic for a few years and it cost a lot of money. This is a great price and you don’t need to buy anymore. I have 2 decks that I’ve played against each other and one appears much more powerful than the other. This could be me being a novice and not figuring out my “weaker” deck or it could be just something that happens with the random unique deck as You will always get one that’s more powerful than another. More plays will hopefully figure it out. Each game has been enjoyable anyway and Would recommend giving it a try if you are even slightly interested in a 2 player card game.

Keyforge is the latest card game that looks like an endless money sink from Fantasy Flight, of Android:Netrunner fame. So probably best to get a few comparative notes out of the way first:

1) No, this is *nothing* like a living card game or collectable card game.

2) Yes, you can spend £stupid on Keyforge, but I don't think you'll want to.

The big novel feature with Keyforge - opposed to pretty much anything else - is that every single deck is unique. And you can't change it, or tell what you're going to get before you open it. In theory that means that any deck you get might be utter junk, but of the ten-or-so I've seen so far, all of them seem ok. All of them have the potential to explode into a spectacular chain of combos, drawing forth more "oohs" and "aahs" than your average bonfire night spectacular, but all of them have also fizzled like a disappointing roman candle stuck in your back garden in a persistent drizzle. It's a hugely swingy game, and honestly you have to be on-board with that. It's all part of the fun. In any other game that involves you buying ever-increasing numbers of cards you'd play one game with a deck like these and then spend hours optimising some of the... "interesting" choices out. Not in Keyforge: you're stuck with what you have.

And that's wonderful. I love Netrunner - I really, really love Netrunner - but I don't play it as often as I'd like to because I just don't have the spare time to spend putting together a deck, and on top of that I'm…

Low barrier to entry

This is a TCG analogue designed around being easy to get into and still have tactical depth. The rules avoid any concept of 'interrupts' and that avoids having the awkward issues around timing and priority that TCGs often suffer from. It also avoids any decisions not made by the player whose turn it currently is, avoiding back-and-forth that slows the game down. While not every deck is well-balanced, and the lucky dip nature of the decks means there's no way of knowing if a new deck you buy will be too similar to one you already own, the game has a low barrier to entry. If you provide your own tokens, there's no need to even get the starter set.

Enter a world where anything is possible in KeyForge! Here in the world’s first Unique Deck Game, two players become Archons racing to forge keys that unlock the hidden vaults of the Crucible, an artificial world built from pieces of countless planets. With an incredible array of creatures, artifacts, and abilities, no two decks are alike, and no two battles will ever be the same!

Playing with the KeyForge: Call of The Archonsstarter set is only the beginning of your adventures. You can expand your arsenal with Call of the Archons Archon Decks, each of which offers a full play experience without the need of deckbuilding or boosters. Each Archon Deck is completely one-of-a-kind and cannot be altered ensuring that you’ll use every faction in your deck to achieve victory. Every Call of the Archons Archon Deck features a distinct name and Archon, and is filled with a singular mix of cards, tactics, and strategic potential. In each pack, you will find an opportunity- the chance to become the best in the world at playing your decks. Will your teams have the strength, skills, and cunning to win the day?

 2 Players  |  15-45 Minutes  |  Ages 14+
