The Civ Trading Card Game (CivTCG) is an in game, player-developed card game based mechanically on Hearthstone, Magic The Gathering and Pokemon. Cards were sold on CivClassic 2.0 and are currently sold on CivMC. CivTCG's Discord opened on July 14th 2018, and the game was announced on Reddit on August 7th 2018. CivTCG was invented and developed by Lodish.

On CivMC, cards are available from purchase in the main shops at Altepetl, Yoahtl and Shiroyama, Nara.[1]

Competition History

The first official tournament to be held was the Pre-release Tournament on October 19th,[2] it lasted several days and Swiftfizz won first place, with BorderTage in second and ShinjiruMC in third. It was an official sport in the Nara Olympics with BlankestAtlas winning gold, Earyx silver and animeme_master bronze.[3]

How to play

Each CivTCG match is a 1 vs 1 battle between two opponents representing two different nations. Gameplay in CivTCG is turn-based, with players taking turns to play cards from their hand, either to cast a powerful effect or to summon a minion to fight on behalf of their nation. Each nation has 20 Health, and if their health is reduced to zero that nation loses, cursed to be a deserted ruin.

At the start of each turn, the player draws a new card from their deck - a collection of 27 cards selected before battle. During their turn, each player can choose to play any of their cards, activate card abilities or command minions to attack targets, however most actions require the player to spend Materials. Each player starts the game choosing 1 Material out of the 5 base materials(❂⚒⎚▩◆), and gains one more of their choice at the start of each turn. All of a players's Materials regenerate at the beginning of their turn (all their Materials become 'replenished').

Drawing your entire deck does not cause the player to lose. However, once a player has no more cards to draw, later attempts to draw an additional card from their empty deck will cause them to suffer 5 damage from Fatigue.

Players can currently choose from 164 official cards, with more cards always being added through future expansions.

Official Sets

There are currently 3 major sets and 2 smaller nation theme sets developed with cards from the Promo Set also Tournament legal. The most recent main set being the Duels set. Sets vary in size. So far only the Classic Set has been rereleased on CivMC. Some cards such as Hjaltland Banner had their art fixed, or were reworded for their rerelease on CivMC.[4]

The card Iron Raider is a misprint of Simple Iron Raider that was sold at the beginning of CivMC and was later fixed and plate destroyed meaning their numbers will never increase. Iron Raider is tournament legal but will be considered the same card as Simple Iron Raider in regards to the rules for example a deck may not have both Iron Raider and Simple Iron Raider in the same deck.

Promo Set

Promotional cards made for CivTCG are labelled as their own set, unlike other sets promo cards don't list how many cards are in the set. Currently there are 32. The Promo set cards can be identified by their ㏚ symbol on the card, also the names of the cards tend to be coloured. The Promo set is currently the only set with reprints, for example reprints of Shardore Tower and Meditat Ziggurat. Unlike other sets, Promo cards can't be bought normally, all are obtained in different ways, for instance the A Game of Thimble card is earned from playing a game of thimble when Lodish is around.
