Hand of Fate (Solo Option)


You, traveler, have been chosen to play The Game, an ancient artifact of terrible power that can twist reality and call forth horrors from the past to test its players.

You now sit at the table before Kallas, the current master of The Game, to play for his entertainment and your life.

You enter the fray with only a rusty ax and the most basic of skills.

Trace the steps of your past and explore the vast lands of the kingdom. Hone your abilities, outwit your opponents, and slay the greatest of foes in order to claim the title of Hero.

Hand of Fate: Ordeals is an adventure deck-building game for 1–4 players that can be played in competitive or cooperative modes.

I’ve condensed the thread to a clean rule sheet and hopefully this helps people.
