In 2018, legendary designer Richard Garfield introduced the world to KeyForge! Become a new Archon in Age of Ascension! As a new set of KeyForge, Age of Ascension mixes up the card pool with 204 brand-new cards, joining 166 cards first introduced in Call of the Archons to create an entirely new pool of 370 cards and billions upon billions more unique decks for you to discover, learn, and master. It’s important to note that Age of Ascension is a companion to Call of the Archons not a sequel or replacement!
Age of Ascension will be available to purchase on Thursday May 30th. Come in and grab the new starter set or a couple of new decks!
Keyforge is a whole new type of card game from our friends at Fantasy Flight Games. It’s a 2-player card game that is neither collectible nor living. Each deck ($9.99 msrp) is unique using a combination of 3 of the 7 factions (Houses of the Crucible) and a selection of the many cards to create a one-of-a-kind deck. Each deck has unique art generated just for it on the back of the cards!!
And, to top it all off, it’s designed by the legendary Richard Garfield (Magic: the Gathering, Android Netrunner, King of Tokyo to name only a few)!! My head is exploding, Meeps!
Players become Archons who must collect Æmber to be the first to Forge three keys to win all while crushing their opponents. There are no costs to play cards, but only one fraction can be played per turn.
We’re pretty excited about the game! We got our demo decks today so we can learn to play it and talk more fluently about it. But, the idea is so cool that it has to be good!
Pre-launch Event 11/10
We’ll be running a pre-launch event here at Meeples Games on 11/10. We’ll have a kit with swag. More details to come!
“Don’t try to change the Crucible to fit your needs. Let it change you.”
Enter a world where anything is possible in KeyForge! In the
center of the universe hangs the Crucible, an artificial world built
from the pieces of countless planets. Here, in the world’s first Unique
Deck Game, created by legendary designer Richard Garfield, two players
step into the roles of mighty Archons, racing to forge keys that unlock
the Crucible’s hidden Vaults.
Leading their diverse teams, filled with followers from three of the
Crucible’s great Houses, the Archons must gather Æmber, stave off their
opponent’s progress, and ultimately be the first to open a Vault and
gain its incredible knowledge. With a vast array of creatures,
artifacts, and abilities and over 104 quadrillion possible decks, every
deck is completely one-of-a-kind, and no two battles will ever be the
A World of Infinite Possibilities
In KeyForge, you become an Archon, one of the only native
inhabitants of the Crucible. This world was built for your kind by the
mischievous and enigmatic Architects, who cobbled together pieces of
every planet in the galaxy, bringing with them an eclectic variety of
creatures, vegetation, cultures, and technology from across the stars!
