Join us to celebrate the launch of the world’s first unique deck game – Keyforge: Call of the Archons!
What is Keyforge?
Keyforge is the newest card game from Richard Garfield (creator of Magic: The Gathering) and it is the world’s first Unique Deck Game. Every single Archon Deck that you’ll use to play is truly unique and one-of-a kind, with its own Archon and its own mixture of cards in the deck. If you pick up an Archon Deck, you know that you’re the only person in existence with access to this exact deck and its distinct combination of cards. In fact, in just the first set of KeyForge, Call of the Archons, there are more than 104,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible decks!
Every Archon Deck contains a full play experience with a deck that cannot be altered, meaning it’s ready to play right out of the box. Not only does this remove the need for deckbuilding or boosters, it also creates a new form of gameplay with innovative mechanics that challenges you to use every card in your deck to find the strongest and most cunning combinations. It is not the cards themselves that are powerful, but rather the interactions between them—interactions that can only be found in your deck. Your ability to make tough tactical decisions will determine your success as you and your opponent trade blows in clashes that can shift in an instant!
Players take the role of competing houses on a planet known as the Crucible. Each deck brings different alliances of the houses and players compete to hold off opposing forces, and ultimately gather enough Æmber to forge keys and unlock the mysteries of the Crucibles’ vaults.
This launch party is the perfect chance to pick up a deck, learn to play, and earn some cool swag along the way!
Join other local players for a day of action and discovery as you participate in three fun activities designed to take you from novice to full Archon in record time. You’ll even earn custom prizes for each activity you complete:
- Pair up with another attendee, open your starter decks, and play with the Quickstart rules in a Learn-to-Play game.
- Next, you’ll open your unique Archon decks and register them in the Call of the Master Vault.
- Finally, you and your fellow attendees will enjoy a quick, four-round Launch Party Tournament, using all four decks from your starter sets.
For each activity you complete, you’ll earn an Active House card that you can use to indicate which House you’re activating. For participating in the Call of the Master Vault, you’ll earn a chance to add to Fanfare’s Create-an-Archon poster. And completing the Launch Party Tournament allows you to claim a poster for your favorite House!
Note: All prizes will be available while supplies last. Be sure to show up early to guarantee your spot in the event. More details will be released as the date draws nearer.
This is just the start of the Keyforge fun! Starting Monday, November 19th we will be hosting Monday Keyforge League Nights. Keep an eye on our calendar for more details!
