Epic Digital's full release is currently scheduled for Fall of 2017, but by backing this Kickstarter for $25 or more, you'll get early Alpha Access!

Your Alpha Access will allow you to start playing Epic Digital in March (that's right, NEXT MONTH), months before it is available to the public! You'll be able to give us feedback on the game, and help shape Epic Digital!

As we release them in the app, you will own unlimited copies of every card in the Base Game, Tyrants, and Uprising. That's a total of 216 unique cards with which you will be able to play sealed, draft, and constructed with ANY tournament legal deck!

Here is a look at our alpha deck building screen:

 

Challenge your friends or random players around the world to as many Dark Draft, Random 30 Sealed, Preconstructed and Full Constructed games as you like, for FREE!

Use your Event Tickets to unlock custom cosmetics and additional campaign features. Event Tickets can also be used to play in leagues or competitive tournaments with in-app prizes, or even to play in World Championship Qualifiers!

The first war of the gods tore the world apart. Each god continually remaking reality was more than the universe could withstand… The great nothingness returned, leaving the gods to bicker in the void.

Eventually, a compromise was reached. The gods joined forces to create the universe anew, but this time there were rules that even they must obey. No longer could gods battle directly, tugging against one another on the fabric of reality. Now their wars are fought in the mortal world with mighty champions and devastating events.

Tales from the world of Epic:

In Epic, each player starts the game with a score of 30 health. Your goal is to eliminate your opponents by reducing their health to 0.

You start the game with a hand of five cards, and draw a new card at the start of your turn. Your cards represent powerful champions that will fight for you or game changing events you can use to thwart your opponent.

Before you first turn, you may muligan to improve your starting hand.
Before you first turn, you may muligan to improve your starting hand.

Each turn every player in the game gets one "gold." Some cards cost a gold to play, others are free. This means you can play any card in your hand from the very first turn. There is no slow building of resources in this game. Epic starts at full throttle!

It is hard to do the game justice with mere words... Check out these Play Through videos to really get a feel for what Epic Digital will be like:

A look at our alpha deck building screen:

 

The four colors of Epic cards each represent a different alignment. Yellow is good, red is evil, blue is sage, and green is wild. Each alignment has its own strengths and weaknesses.

Like in Star Realms, you can play cards of any and all colors in your deck. If you can match colors, your cards will frequently get more powerful.

The righteous, the honorable, protectors, healers, angels, saints, brave knights and benevolent kings. These are the forces of good.

Your good cards will raise large armies of humans, protect your champions and increase your health. You will banish enemy champions to the bottom of your opponent's deck and launch devastating airborne assaults lead by glorious angels.

Savage beasts, burning fire, terrible storms, instinct, aggression and rage. The wild don't have an agenda. They aren't good or evil, they're hungry... and your opponent looks like food. 

Playing wild gives you giant monsters that can smash and stomp though your opponent's defenses. You'll hurl fire and lightning at your foes. Great storms, volcanoes and earthquakes will smash all that stand in your way.

The cruel, the murderous, vampires, assassins, demons, devils and zombies. These nightmares taken form are champions of evil.

With evil cards, you'll master death, killing champions in droves then bringing the dead back to serve a new master. Your vampires will shrug off mortal wounds and feed upon the forces of your enemies. Hordes of zombies and powerful demons will be yours to command, if you are willing to pay the price to summon them.

The wise, the clever, the logical, tricksters, scholars, illusionists, engineers, alchemists and wizards. For the sage, knowledge is power. Reason and logic will illuminate the path to victory.

Through sage cards you will master time, returning enemy champions to your opponent's hand. You will construct mighty engines of war and call upon powerful magic to transform or blast your enemies. You will mislead enemy armies, leaving your opponents defenseless and assuring your victory.  

In November of 2016 White Wizard Games ran the first Epic Card Game World Championship where 64 players competed for their share of the $100,000.00 prize purse!

One of the very exciting things about Epic Digital is its potential to grow the Epic Card Game community. A larger player base and revenue from both the physical and digital version of the game will allow us to run more (and potentially even bigger) events! 

Note: All rewards and stretch goals for this Kickstarter are digital. No shipping necessary!

Risks and challenges

Every single backer of this Kickstarter will gain Alpha access next month. While this is awesome, and will allow our community to help shape the game, it is still an Alpha. Some game features haven't been added yet, and there is certainly a high risk of occasional bugs, and some server down time when we upload new, improved versions.

The White Wizard Games staff has been playing the Epic Digital Alpha for months now, and we are LOVING it. We look forward to sharing this experience with you, our backers, and we are especially looking forward to having tons of new opponents for our online games!
