Flesh and Blood TCG

Flesh and Blood is an up and coming trading card game from New Zealand based creators, Legend Story Studios. Although inspired by classic trading cards games (TCGs) such as Magic The Gathering, Flesh and Blood uses an entirely new game system created by ex-MTG pro James White. Flesh and Blood looks to simulate a fantasy battle using weapons such as swords and shields between two or more heroes, which is unlike any other TCG. With no officially supported online or digital version of the game, the creators of Flesh and Blood consistently emphasise that it is meant to be played face-to-face or in the ‘flesh and blood’.

Why Choose Flesh and Blood

Flesh and Blood has a very clear focus on competitive TCGs with a highly active tournament scene across the world, from local level ‘Armoury’ events at local game stores to annual World Championships held for the top players across the globe. With the ever shifting focus of Magic The Gathering (MTG) towards its casual multiplayer format ‘Commander’, Legend Story Studios will immediately appeal to those players who mostly engaged with competitive MTG. Flesh and Blood’s 1 vs 1 ‘Classic Constructed’ format is its most widely supported game type which encourages competitive play.

Flesh and Blood attempts to reduce the element of luck from TCGs and the innate issues of using a ‘land-based’ resource system found among many other TCGs, where every card has it’s main effect as attack or action, but can also be ‘pitched’ to turn it into resources to be used to play other cards. Cards can also be used to defend, but expect tight decision making as once the card is used for defence, it will no longer be available for a potentially precious attack and will not be replaced by a new card until the end of your next turn. This drives combo-centric gameplay where skillful players are rewarded for recognising the best path to victory while others might be overwhelmed with choices.

This unique system also provides a drastically different flow of gameplay compared to the majority of TCGs as you begin the game at full power, instead of gradually ‘ramping up’ your resources throughout the game. This system simulates more closely a battle between two warriors, as they would become more wounded throughout the battle. The longer you survive in a game of Flesh And Blood, the tougher it is to get that perfect hand to deal a devastating blow to your opponent.
