Cardians
A drafting microgame.

Players: 2
Playtime: 20 minutes
For Ages: 12+

Game Setup
• Build a deck consisting of 8 blue, 8 red, and 8 yellow cards. Use one of the pre-constructed sets or mix and match multiple sets to build a unique custom deck!
• Deal 12 cards to each player's hand.

10 Rounds of Play
Each round, both players will complete the following three steps.
1. Play a face-down card across from your opponent's card and next to your previous card in the row.
2. Simultaneously reveal the played cards.
3. Swap hands.

Step 1 Step 2 Step 3
[1][3][3][?] [1][3][3][2] [X]]]]]]]]S
[2][1][4][?] [2][1][4][4] N[ ]]]]]]]]


End of Game
The game ends after the 10th round. Discard the 4 unplayed cards. Both players add up their totals for each color. The player with the highest total in two of three colors wins the game. Whenever a color is tied, the player with highest card in that color wins the tiebreaker.

Looking for any feedback or suggestions you have. The gameplay is super simple but there is quite a bit of decision making and analysis based on the cards available.

Cards will have passive effects and/or conditional triggers based on cards in your row, adjacent cards, cards of a matching color, your opponent's cards, etc.
