Epic Card Game™ is a great draft and sealed deck card game, right out of the box.
If you are a trading card game veteran, you know what this means, and yes, it is every bit as awesome as you think it would be.
If you haven’t played trading card games before, you are in for a real treat. Sealed and draft are incredibly fun! Unfortunately, with trading card games, they are also incredibly expensive ($10-$30 every time you play).
But with Epic, you get the fun without that scary price tag. A single $15 box of Epic allows up to four people to play draft or sealed again and again with great game play every single time.
With sealed, draft, and preconstructed decks, up to four players can play out of a single copy of the game. There is another way to play, called “constructed,” where each player needs their own copy of the game. In constructed, you build a deck at home using your entire Epic card collection to play against a friend who did the same thing.
While Epic gives you the full trading card game experience at a tiny fraction of the cost, Epic is NOT a trading card game. There are no random packs or hard-to-get cards. When you buy the game, you get everything you need to play. You know exactly what cards you’re getting. There will be expansions down the road, but they are optional. You can literally play and enjoy hundreds of games with just the base set.
One Game – Many Ways To Play
There are so many ways to play Epic – a different game every time you play! Sealed, Open Draft, Dark Draft, Preconstructed, Epic Cube, Full Constructed, Hydra, Raid, Last One Standing and many, many more. See our Formats page for details. Play with friends, or get involved in the competitive scene. For local tournament details, check out our How to Run an Epic Card Game Tournament page.
