Epic is a fast paced card game of fantasy combat designed by Hall of Fame Magic players Rob Dougherty and Darwin Kastle. It packs all the amazing game play and beautiful art of a trading card game in one little box at an unbelievably low price.
We designed Epic to provide great draft and sealed deck play 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 (like $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.
Just that would be an unbelievable amount of game for the money, but there are more ways to play. By simply dividing up the cards by the four colors (yellow, red, green and blue) you will have four preconstructed decks, each balanced for play against the others.
With sealed, draft, and preconstucted 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.
