How To Play

The 'kitchen table' game sensibilities belie the much deeper complex and engaging gameplay, pulling from a diverse range of cards. Each game is as much a narrative experience you can share with friends, as it is a battle for tactical supremacy.

Two players take the roles of Avatars, assemble their own decks, and then cast a variety of elemental spells, summon powerful minions, and shape the world around them from their Atlas to increase their dominance and ultimately banish their foe.

We know that players learn how to play in different ways, from watching videos to just throwing cards on the table and working it out as you go. With that in mind, we've prepared some useful tools to help get you on your way. Explore our Good Times Society intro video that covers the gameplay basics and some walk-through games with the Sorcery Development team.

For those that want to dig into the nitty gritties, download our rulebook PDF or explore our FAQs. We've been consolidating the questions that players ask about specific cards and interactions, and created dedicated card pages that show each cards' FAQs in context.

There is also a super friendly and helpful Sorcery community on Discord that are happy to answer any questions, so be sure to head over there and meet your fellow sorcerers, clarify rules, and find some locals to play some games with!
