I can forsee that Keyforge is only going to get more popular as we get closer to release (and following that!) so I just wanted to make a place we can waffle, speculate, rant and chat about it.
If you’re not familiar, it’s the newest competitive card game from designer Richard Garfield (of Magic: The Gathering and Android: Netrunner notoriety, as well as many others ) One of the key(!) conceits is that every single deck will be procedurally generated and unique… and apparently balanced too! Fantasy Flight are touting 104,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 valid combinations.
I think one of the most interesting aspects will be not learning what the “optimum” deck construction is and re-creating it, but instead working with a random deck you are given and finding your deck’s strengths, weaknesses and idosyncracies. You might know something about how an opponents deck might play from the factions which constitute their Archon but each deck you come up against will be a refreshing challenge.
So yes, I’m excited. How about you?
