Let’s Play: Dark Souls The Card Game

February 6, 2018 by thisisazrael

It’s time to engage in jolly co-operation as Az, Lance, and Coco try to survive a game of Dark Souls The Card Game from Steamforged Games due to release 16th March 2018.

Let's Play: Dark Souls The Card Game

Playing as a tank Knight, a healing Herald, and range damaging Sorcerer we’ll be making our way through progressively more difficult enemy encounters, gathering souls and equipment, which can then be used to improve our deck of cards, before facing the final boss fights!

Your deck contains equipment, items, and spells which are used to heal allies, damage enemies, or block incoming damage. However, the abilities of these cards have a stamina cost to play. Generally, the more stamina cards from your hand you use to play an ability the more damage you may do or incoming damage you may block,

However, a players deck represents their health, making each encounter a delicate balancing act. If there ever comes a point when a player has to draw a card and cannot, they are out, and all players must return to the bonfire to rest and recover.

There are five bonfire cards in total so making sure you use them sparingly and deciding when to return will be very important.

We had a lot of fun with this one but let us know what you think.

Will you take on the challenge?
