Choose your clan, maneuver your forces, and fight for the powerful crystals of the Crystal Clans, the new 2-player expandable game from Plaid Hat Games!
On a player's turn, she takes actions, spending initiative for each action until the initiative token stops on her opponent's side of the initiative track. One action that can be taken is summoning new units from your hand into your home zone. Friendly units in the same zone combine into a squad, which combines their attack and defense but allows them to activate as one.
Each unit has attack, defense, activation cost, and unique abilities. Some units harness their clan's signature abilities, while others add unique tricks of their own. Players activate their squads and march them to the crystal zones to score a crystal or to their opponent's home zone to invade.
When a squad shares a zone with an enemy squad, a battle may occur. Each player has a chance to influence the battle by playing a card from their hand for a battle effect, whose results depend on the kind of card played by your opponent.
When you wrestle control of the crystal zones from your opponent or deplete your opponent's draw pile, you gain a powerful crystal which allows you to warp the battle in your favor. The first player to gain 4 crystals wins the game!
