Infinity wars Rulebook.

   This is a compilation of words, areas and game-play action that happen during the game, I strongly suggest you do not read trough all of it, but instead use ctr+F to find the keyword you are wondering about. If you cannot find a certain keyword, try shortening it, such as using "attack" instead of "attacking", or "play" instead of "in play". If you still cannot find the keyword, Go ahead and post it on the thread as it may be missing.

This compilation Include a Glossary, a overview of the field, of the cards, of the turn order and of win conditions. There is also a list of niches.

Great guide Darkname. Stickied.


Some comments:
Minor language terms
- You used honor instead of morale for when your deck runs out.
-  Believe the term is "initiative" instead of priority

Would like to see you cover trading post and deck building restrictions in-depth.
Sacrificing a creature does not result in morale lost.


Regarding Exhaust. Currently creatures like Secluded Constructor can use their ability when they are exhausted(ie. turned they are deployed). Not sure if this is intended or not.

Thanks, I know I would get the wrong words somewhere in there. kept typing creatures instead of characters too!

I will probably add on to it over time, not too sure about adding a deck building section as I feel it should be an individual guide by itself.

Note the date of the last Edit (and the cards/UI). This guide has not been edited since Early 2013. Poison was introduced in Infestation. There are many, many more terms now and there are more win conditions now, aswell. (: Still a great guide that hopefully will be redone or edited ^-^
