The official rules indicate that each player's deck must contain 60 cards, neither more nor less.

  • You win when you get 20 "Lores".

As we mentioned in our How to play guide, the game ends when one of the 2 players manages to reach 20 Lore points.

In addition, another rule is that if one of the players runs out of deck cards, they automatically lose.

  • There are 4 types of cards (Character, Items, Actions, Songs).
  • Those cards can be of different colors.

  • You may use up to 4 copies of the same card in your deck.
  • What Are Ready and Exerted Cards?

{E} =

= Exerted

Some game rules and card effects require you to exert or {E} a card in play. To exert a card (or {E}), turn it sideways.

Once a card is exerted, you can’t exert it again until it’s been readied by a game rule or card effect. To ready a card, simply turn it back upright. Remember to ready all your exerted cards at the beginning of your turn.
