KeyForge is an incredibly fresh concept for a game, falling somewhere between a traditional collectible card game and a “buy it once and play it right out of the box” board game. Every deck that you buy has a randomized assortment of cards that is controlled by an algorithm designed to make playable combinations. The assortment of cards in any deck that you buy is fully unique; it will never be replicated in any other deck. Each deck also has a procedurally generated, fully unique avatar and name.
In this way, every single deck is unique. There is no deck-building, collecting, or constructing of any kind. Buy a deck, open it up, play it – a very exciting paradigm shift for all of us at Covenant. We are thrilled to see a more casual approach to card games with a low barrier of entry, a huge appeal to non-gamers, and a vast feeling of exploration and discovery.
From Fantasy Flight Games:

Here in the world’s first Unique Deck Game, two players become Archons racing to forge keys that unlock the hidden vaults of the Crucible, an artificial world built from pieces of countless planets.
