Attack the Darkness Contents

Attack the Darkness

Attack the Darkness is a table-top role-playing game, a constructed deck game, and a card-drafting game all rolled into one. Your character is your deck; your cards are everything that character is, and everything they can do.

Designed to be simple in its components and yet complex in its combinations, Attack the Darkness allows for the speed and excitement of a collectible trading card game while granting the tactics and intricacies of a table-top RPG.
