Strife is a 2-player strategy card game that plays in around an hour. It’s a game of perfect information, where you will always know your opponents options. Aside from mastering the unique combo-creating gameplay of your champions, figuring out how to outmaneuver your opponent is where the true challenge lies.

Each player has the same hand of 10 champions, and will simultaneously play them as they fight over key locations throughout Aerim worth varying victory points. Each champion has a battle ability, triggered during battles, and a legacy ability, which can be used only while on top of the legacy pile. This creates an intricate latticework of strategy for the players, as each champion must be considered for not only what he can do in the current battle, but for what ability he will add to the next.

Further impacting the critical decisions within the game is the Fatestone tiebreaking system. The Fatestone starts at a value of one, and whoever holds the Fatestone die loses all ties. However, that player may instead pass the stone to his opponent to claim a victory in that tie, but doing so raises the value of the Fatestone by one each time it is passed. At the end of the game, the player holding the Fatestone adds its final value onto their victory point tally. Whichever player has the most victory points at the end of the game, wins!

Tense gameplay, agonizing decisions, and dynamic ability combinations all combine to make Strife a truly exciting addition to any gamer’s collection.
