Living elements interweave throughout the realm. A water guardian extinguishes a roaring wildfire that leaves behind unrecognizably scorched earth. The seared avatar of that earth rises and consumes the water of a dozen seas. With infinite variations on their eternal cycle, no element can ever reign supreme.

Mysticana is a Foundation Deck: an 18-card deck that includes multiple core games using just the base cards with even more games added through small expansions. The deck features cards with 6 ranks across 3 suits (elements) which have a “rock-paper-scissors” hierarchy. While each game might make use of the deck’s design in different ways, the flexible foundation enables new games to fit in seamlessly alongside previous entries.

The base deck includes rules for three core games: Nine Perils, Sorcerers' Showdown, and The Path Ahead.

  • Players: 1-4
  • Length: 15 minutes
  • Age: 8+

EXPANSIONS

Cave of Djinns is a solo-only expansion to the Mysticana deck. In this evolving puzzle, the player must solve the djinns’ riddles through careful card placement. Each of the 6 double-sided djinns are placed in a loose pyramid shape, with space around each djinn to play a card in each orthogonal direction. The player draws 2 cards and plays them both in sequence each turn. Each djinn shows a specific arrangement of cards around them which must be fulfilled to solve their riddle and earn an immediate one-time bonus. Solved djinns are covered by an adjacent Mysticana card. Complete all 6 riddles to escape the cave with wits intact!

Arcane Artifacts is a multiplayer expansion to the Mysticana deck. In this lightweight game of chance and skill, each player receives 2 cards and hopes to have the best combination for the round. After the initial deal, players may discard 1 of their cards to draw a replacement, then each player decides whether to stay in the play or resign for the round. Once all players have committed, a new card is flipped; this determines scoring for the round and also changes the value of each Avatar (rank ⟐). Players reveal their hands to see who holds the best score. Each round also features one of 12 Artifacts, which offer a bonus to the player's hand who meets their criteria most effectively. Rounds are cumulative, and the first player to win a round and have 30+ points is declared the final victor!
