Shadowfist is a trading card game based loosely on action movies from the studios in Hong Kong with a splash of Hollywood for spice. The cards represent people, places, and things involved in the Secret War to control the world's feng shui sites, mystical places of power that guarantee victory and prosperity for those who control them. Each game represents a small battle in the larger war raging all around us.
During a game, you'll play various cards to advance your side of the story and move closer to your goal of controlling feng shui sites. Each player needs his or her own deck of Shadowfist cards to play, but the exact mix of cards you play with is up to you.
Getting Started: What you need to play
The figures in the Secret War belong to one of ten factions. If you're new to the game, you can purchase a quick and easy demo deck from the online store for the low price of only $3.25 (that includes shipping!).
The store also has singles available from Dark Future, Shurikens and Six Guns, Critical Shift and Empire of Evil! Start with a demo deck and build your collection into a lethal machine of kung-fu action!
Booster boxes may be purchased from Z Man Games or Potomac Distribution.
Once you get your cards, you need to know what to do, right? Right!
