Real-time strategy in turn-based card form
Ramp up your workers, build tech buildings,
summon heroes, and level them up.
A Decade in the Making
It took over 10 years to get Codex right
because it radically re-invents the customizable card game genre
- A whopping 23 articles about Codex
- And an hour+ long podcast
- Build your deck as you play
- A codex full of answers for whatever’s thrown at you
- New "patrol zone" combat system
- Customizability comes in chunks, so any combination is valid
- No collectability
Choose Your "Build Order"
Your codex is a book of lots of cards.
Build your deck from your codex as you play.
("Build order" is the RTS game jargon for that.)
You start with just 10 cards in your deck and add 2 cards from your codex each turn.
Economy, Heroes, and Tech
Your tech buildings, heroes, and units can all be attacked in combat.
You can temporarily disable the opponent’s ability to cast certain spells
or play certain units by destroying their heroes and tech buildings.
Choose Three Heroes
The heroes you choose determine which cards will go in your codex.
No matter which heroes you choose, your codex will always have a coherent set of useful cards.
(Heroes sold separately in various Codex products, but the Deluxe version comes with all 20!)
