YOU’VE ARRIVED AT THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE where the vast artifice known as The Crucible attracts the exiled, abandoned, or simply mislaid civilizations and creatures of the ageless matterverse.
This is the domain of the enigmatic Archons, ethereal beings that seek to plumb the Crucible’s strange Vaults for that which they desire more than anything: the very secrets of creation.
To open these Vaults, the Archons must forge Vault Keys from the powerful substance of Æmber. To do so, they need guile, courage, and most importantly, allies from among the strange denizens and creatures stranded on The Crucible.
KEYFORGE was designed by veteran designer Richard Garfield who has designed some of the bestselling card games of all times (Magic: the Gathering, Netrunner, KeyForge, King of Tokyo and many more).
In KEYFORGE each player takes on the roles of an Archon seeking gather enough Æmber to first forge three vault keys and win the game. To play, each player will need one Archon Deck of 36 cards, comprised of cards from three different Houses (factions that dwell in the Crucible). These cards represent the minions, actions, artifacts and other elements of the Crucible that each Archon controls.
There are many interesting and special houses in the Crucible, such as the beasts and magic of the wilderness in House Untamed, the stygian demons of House Dis, the scoundrels and thieves of House Shadows, the devious traders of House Ekwidon, and many more.
A selection of the many KeyForge Houses.
KEYFORGE may be the most unique game ever created. Every deck that a player purchases is unique in the world. This is made possible by the magic of the software engine behind KEYFORGE and modern digital printing.
Once a player buys a deck, that deck may be scanned on the KeyForge Master Vault to track Master Vault ownership of the deck, and to enable the deck for play in official KeyForge tournaments.
If you're new to KeyForge, there is no better place to start than the KeyForge: 2-Player Starter Set. This amazing box contains full rules, tokens, learning decks, and two ready-to-go sealed KeyForge decks to explore.
The out-of-the-box KEYFORGE experience is a head-to-head dueling game. Yet, for those less competitively inclined, the line of KEYFORGE ADVENTURES allow players to use their regular KEYFORGE decks in an entirely new collaborative way.
Each KEYFORGE ADVENTURE is a stand-alone game experience in which 1-3 players work together to defeat some enemy of the Crucible or other challenge. Whether you're looking to defeat the monstrous KeyRaken, foil an undersea conspiracy, or investigate a mysterious dark mansion, there's an adventure waiting for you!
