Community Art Challenge

Congratulations to all of the contestants in the Sorcery: Contested Realm Art Challenge! The community’s tributes to the unparalleled artistry of Sorcery: Contested Realm was truly remarkable. Make sure to watch our showcase of the submissions and the announcement of our Community Art Challenge champions! Let us know in the comments which were your favorites!


We are making steady progress with the final stages of fulfillment. The team has been messaging backers over the last week with regular updates to ensure your address is up to date before we mail out pledges. Moving into next week we’ll be updating backers in different territories using Kickstarter updates and also sharing progress on our social platforms too.

There and Back Again

In Sorcery: Contested Realm, your avatar uses sites to expand their influence on the realm, determining where your forces can move and attack the enemy. However, these sites are so much more than just simple stepping stones to victory. Game Designer, Mike Haught walks us through the role sites play in creating the tactical depth championed by Sorcery: Contested Realm. You can read all about it here.

Contesting the Realm by Turn Two

As we look for veteran plays to help share their knowledge with others, this week’s Deck Tech comes from our very own Rafa Novellino. As both a designer and competitor in the ongoing discord league, Rafa has a lot of experience to share! In our last update, he walked us through the iterative design behind the development of Sorcery’s iconic Lightning Bolt, but this week we take a look at his primer for his hyper-aggressive Spectral Bears Deck.

Print and Play Update

As the Alpha cards make their way into the world, we took the opportunity to update the pre-con Print & Play PDF files. These were originally uploaded as playtesting tools, but now with Alpha approaching, we wanted to update the files and make sure everything matches the real deal! Whether you're sitting next to your letterbox waiting for the Sorcery boxes to arrive or not, you can fill that void square in your heart with these PNP files until you're shuffling the real deal between your fingers.
