VEmpire Learning Lesson 3

WHAT IS A DECK-BUILDING GAME?

 

VEmpire is a digital Deck-Building game.

A Deck-Building game is a turn-based card game where building a powerful Deck is part of the game
itself – in opposite to a CCG (Collectible Card-Game) where the Deck is being assembled before the match starts.

In a typical Deck-Building game both players start with a weak Start-Deck.
They can acquire better cards with a “currency” that the already owned cards are providing!

All cards that have been played within one turn and have not gone into the Graveyard, usually go back into
the players Discard-Pile at the end of the turn.
This is also true for newly acquired cards as also for cards that remained in the players Hand.

At the beginning of the game and at the end of each turn, just before it’s the opponent’s turn, a new Hand of five
cards is drawn from the Deck.
If the Deck is empty, the Discard-Pile gets shuffled and becomes the new Deck.
This way – allmost all cards will be drawn (again) later!
All cards, which lead to victory (or defeat) are available within the game through normal play!
