A Strategy Card Game of Epic Warfare!
Eternity Wars: The Card Game is a two-player strategy card game of epic warfare. Players construct buildings to establish economic superiority on an expanding battlefield. Armies are deployed to clash in fantastic battles. And in the end, the player who destroys a government center first is the winner.
Choose Your Faction
Choose from a host of factions, including the Vulcan Empire, the Thall Clans, the Covenant of Necromancers, the Great Animal Kingdom, and more! Each faction boasts their own unique strategies and offers exciting gameplay experiences that change from faction to faction.
Build Your Base and Deploy an Army
Players construct a 40-card deck and a 10-card Reserve Deck using a variety of cards from the Base Set, Expansion Sets, and War Packs. With their decks built, they construct bases by playing Building Cards that grant valuable gold, expand the battlefield, and provide unique abilities. Using the gold produced by the Building Cards, players deploy powerful soldiers, in the form of Unit Cards, who assault the battlefield to engage in epic warfare against the enemy.
Fight on an Expanding Battlefield
Eternity Wars: The Card Game uses an invisible grid as a battlefield where soldiers fight and buildings are constructed. The grid's size is defined by the number of buildings each player has constructed. With each new building, a new lane opens up, expanding the battlefield for them to deploy and move additional units in.
Call for Reinforcements with a Reserve Deck
In Eternity Wars: The Card Game, each player may construct a 10-card Reserve Deck before play begins. Unlike other card games, players may include cards in their deck that allow them to deploy units directly from their Reserve Deck during a game. They may even take and replace cards from reserve after meeting certain in-game requirements!
Below you will find the Eternity Wars gameplay video. This video shows the current build of the game, and is not final. Many aspects you see here are subject to change, but not the core elements.
In a distant universe there is a planet known as Inferno. It is a battleground where advanced life forms considered gods and aliens unleash their creations in fantastic wars. On the continent of Ember, four different races, all with no knowledge of their status as pawns, fight what they believe are their own battles. And so armies of bloodthirsty Thall, disciplined human soldiers, unified animal warriors, and endless ranks of undead clash in epic warfare!
Enjoy this brief introduction to the Eternity Wars universe!
Below you will find the PDF rules for the Base Set. Please note that these rules are not final and subject to continual changes up until we go to print.
The Base Set has everything a new player needs to get into Eternity Wars: The Card Game!
-106 cards divided between 2 factions: the Vulcan Empire and the Thall Clans
-2 Turn Order cards
-40 damage tokens
The Vulcan Empire
Made up entirely of professional soldiers, the Vulcan Military is the most disciplined and well-equipped fighting force on the planet Inferno. It is considered a true honor to join the ranks as a soldier and defend the Empire from its many enemies. Because of the constant threat of enemy invasions, the need for a defense force is so great that the military receives near-unlimited funding and political support. Each soldier is given the best training and the highest quality gear. And so, perfectly organized battle lines of soldiers touting razor-sharp spear tips, finely crafted swords, and extra thick armor, await any enemy who dare threaten the socially and technologically advanced people of the Vulcan Empire.
The Thall Clans
The Thall define what it means to be a warlike race. Their genetic makeup draws them to violence like a parched animal is drawn to water. Add in an abundance of testosterone and a religion that preaches glory through warfare, and it becomes obvious that nothing, no matter how drastic, could ever convince the Thall to stop their constant invasions against the other races of Inferno. The Thall military strategy revolves around offense and overwhelming aggression, and they utilize powerful weapons and units to engage in offensive tactics. Defense is not a commonly used term, and when it is mentioned, it is only to explain that the best defense is a good offense. The powerful Giants and Savage Ogres prove that there is merit to such a simple strategy.
Additional factions are available in Expansion Sets, including the Covenant of Necromancers and the Great Animal Kingdom. Each Expansion Set is sold separately and includes 72 cards of one new faction.
The Covenant of Necromancers
The Covenant of Necromancers (CON) are a small group of wealthy necromancers who share a wish to see the world burn. They command unlimited armies of zombie soldiers from atop their Dark Tower in the Shrouded Forests. Individually, the undead are weak and easily defeated, but they compensate for this with the endless amounts of zombies that make up each army. The CON armies are known for their attrition tactics in combat, and their ability to out sustain enemy forces with unending waves of reinforcements. What makes the Covenant of Necromancers so feared is their ability to reanimate fallen soldiers on the battlefield, and it is not uncommon for a soldier to have to kill the same zombie two or three times in a single battle. But even when the Shambling Mobs and Undead Soldiers are eventually defeated, monstrous Abominations and highly skilled Undead Special Forces are unleashed onto the battlefield. And if that is not enough, the mythical Lich Titan is unleashed upon the world, to prove that the Covenant of Necromancers cannot be stopped.
The Great Animal Kingdom
The Great Animal Kingdom (GAK) is the largest nation on the planet Inferno and is home to a large variety of intelligent animals. Traditionally a peaceful kingdom, the other warlike races forced the GAK animals to form armies and forge weapons to protect their peaceful lands. What makes the GAK armies unique from the other militaries is their versatility. Because all of the animals willingly devote themselves to protecting the Kingdom, a large pool of different soldiers with unique skills are available for use by the Lion nobles who command the kingdom. Buffalo Spearmen form organized defensive phalanxes, while Hawk Riders provide a highly mobile cavalry. Assault Rhinos and Siege Elephants offer their raw power, and Cheetah Scouts undertake intelligence gathering. And when all methods fail to defeat those who threaten GAK lands, the wildlife will always lend a paw to help out their more intelligent brothers and sisters.
In addition, players may purchase War Packs to supplement their armies with unique new cards. Each War Pack contains 36 cards (4 copies each of 9 cards), including cards for each existing faction.
The Elite Forces War Pack includes new Elite units and buildings for each of the four currently available factions. Engage in infiltration operations with units like Specters and Shade Assassins to catch enemies of the Vulcan Empire by surprise, or unleash a Giant onto the battlefield to crush all that stand in the way of your Thall army!
Eternity Wars isn’t just a board game, it’s an entire fantasy universe with unique characters and dramatic events. The novel Eternity Wars: Conspiracy tells the story of two young Vulcan citizens, Terminus and Athena, as they struggle to save their people from an apocalyptic invasion by the barbaric Thall Clans. Throughout their journey they encounter deadly enemies in the form of power-obsessed Thall warriors, sociopathic necromancers, sly assassins, and even corrupt Vulcan generals. But for all their enemies, Terminus and Athena are able to forge powerful alliances and receive help from forces they once thought malevolent. The result is a clash between good and evil that spills over into the heavens and reveals an ancient battle between the creators of their world.
Every chapter in the Eternity Wars novel includes beautiful illustrations and maps, creating a truly immersive experience.

Backers of the DELUXE Pack and above will also receive 2 additional limited cards (4 copies of each). Both cards offer unique gameplay experiences to keep Eternity Wars: The Card Game fresh and fun.

Many optional items are available for purchase. These items can be added onto any pledge level. Simply increase your pledge by the amount equal to each add-on. More add-ons may be unlocked as we reach stretch goals.
International Shipping Chart
International backers will need to pay an additional shipping charge depending on their location. Consult the chart below to determine the amount needed, and increase your pledge by that much.
For add-ons, to calculate your total shipping charge, add the amount you will need to add for your pledge level, and then add an additional amount based on the items you wish to buy. For example, a backer from Germany pledging at the Base Set level that wishes to add-on a playmat would add $8.00 + $10.00 = $18.00 to his overall pledge.
Please be aware that in addition, international backers are responsible for paying any taxes/VAT as well.
At $3,000 we will have enough to finish up many of the incomplete elements of the game, including graphic design, art, and game changes. We will print the games using an on-demand printer we have an established relationship with.
When we reach this funding level, we will make the transition from a POD printer over to a factory printer. This will include an across-the-board upgrade of the quality of all games, including more durable boxes, thicker tokens, and a full-color 24-page rule book. New tokens will be added to the Covenant of Necromancers expansion as well!
Once we reach this funding level, we will be able to add a new War Pack to the add-ons list. The Masters of Warfare War Pack features new leader units and other unique cards for each of the four currently available factions. Like all the War Packs, it will be available for $10.
This stretch goal unlocks the Frontline Heroes War Pack, and introduces new heroes and cavalry units to each faction.
The Mercenaries War Pack is chalked full of mercenary cards that can be recruited to fight for any faction!
In the Capitals War Pack, each faction gains the ability to upgrade their government center to a stronger capital government center and gain extremely powerful abilities. Enlist the aid of Wild Animals or unleash the dread Lich Titan onto the battlefield!
It is extremely important to point out that this game is still incomplete, including graphic design, art, game mechanics, and balancing. While the core elements of this game are locked in place, it is still subject to major changes based on critical feedback that we receive. By pledging toward this project you will help us to give the game the finishing touches that it needs.
Risks and challenges
Alice Entertainment LLC has already published one game in the past. Faced with the insurmountable challenge of failing to fund a Kickstarter, we were still able to produce a limited print run of a high- quality board game to offer to backers, and even delivered it on time.
Having gained experience, we understand that there are always risks and challenges involved when running a Kickstarter to publish and produce a game. While we can promise that all aspects of this project that are under our control will be completed on time and to the desired standard, there are many elements of this project (from manufacturing to shipping) that will be completed by other parties, and we cannot make promises for things we don’t have full control over. However, if in the advent that the manufacturer does not deliver a product of the promised quality, or if some unforeseen event occurs, we will do everything in our power to ensure that any issues are solved, and if it comes to it, at the very least we will do our best to refund your money back to you.
Alice Entertainment is committed to providing the highest quality product by the promised delivery date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
