Frequently Asked Questions
No! Deck of Wonders isn't "destruction" legacy, so you'll never be asked to destroy a component. You will have the opportunity to upgrade certain cards at major milestones by placing a sticker on them, but those upgrades will never cover up the original information on the card, and you'll always be able to play "vanilla" if desired.
If you don't want to place stickers on your cards, we'll have a spot to track upgrades via the rulebook. Some players are getting extra sleeves so that they can place each upgrade sticker on its own extra sleeve. If you'd like to do that, just add $7.50 for sleeves (330 total).Last updated:
The date is driven primarily by art. Deck of Wonders has over 50 works of art by Lauren Brown, and they're dual-sided! While the optimist in me would love to promise the game will be ready earlier, I think Lauren might reach through the internet and choke me! My golden rule has been "don't rush the artist," and I've been super happy with the results of that approach so far. I also figure that a first-time creator has a lot more to gain by being conservative on timeline than by being aggressive. What I will say is that if the game is ready before Nov 2021, we won't artificially hold it back.Last updated:

You'll only need one copy of Deck of Wonders to play co-op with up to 3 people!
In co-op, each player selects a separate Villain to face, and you play out your battles in parallel! At the start of each turn, before drawing, each player may pass one card from their hand to another player's hand. To win, all players must defeat their respective Villains on the same turn! A Villain defeated when other Villains are left alive will simply come back to life at 1 health. Up to 3 people can play co-op at once with 1 copy of Deck of Wonders, and you can play with as many people as you like if you add additional copies of the game.Last updated:
Half your deck is dictated by the Villain you're facing, and the other half is assembled by you in one of 3 ways:
Trust the Deck of Wonders: New players can simply use the 28 recommended cards from their collection to complete the Deck. This gets you started quickly with a tough but attainable challenge.
Make Your Own Destiny: Experienced players can hand-pick 28 cards from their collection to complete the Deck. This allows you to maximize your chances of success through smart deckbuilding.
Let Fate Decide: Players looking for a challenge can shuffle their collection and deal 28 cards at random to complete the Deck. This creates an unpredictable and unique challenge. (And statistically speaking, it’s almost certainly the only time that exact set of cards is ever played!)Last updated:
Yes! And that accounts for the additional thickness as well as the height/width.Last updated:
I'd love to translate Deck of Wonders into as many languages as have sufficient interest. So far, there's been strong interest from the French community, and I'm pleased to announce that Deck of Wonders will have a PDF rulebook and card reference available in French!

The card will be a variant of the normal template that is personally signed by the game's creator, Dennis Furia, and illustrator, Lauren Brown. Each signature card will also be numbered.
Each side of the card also has optional rules not found in the base game. These rules are just for fun, and riff on the fact that the card is "signed off on" by the designer and illustrator, giving you permission to bend the normal rules in 4th-wall-breaking ways.Last updated:
