Faeria is a digital collectible card and turn-based strategy game that takes place on a dynamic playing board set in a fantasy universe. The game was developed and published by the independent Belgian game studio Abrakam, and released for desktop platforms in 2017.
Faeria is a combination of a digital collectible card game with a “living” game board concept. Players in Faeria battle one-on-one against other players or computer-controlled opponents. Battles take place on a empty hex board, with two vying avatars placed on opposite sites of this map; the maps also include four Faeria (mana) wells at other corners. Each player starts with a deck of thirty cards.
At the start of a player’s turn, they draw a card from their deck and gain three Faeria (mana points). If they have control of any of the mana wells, by having a creature next to it, they gain an extra Faeria point per well. They may then perform one action from their Power Wheel, play any number of cards limited by their Faeria, and/or move any creatures they have on the map, in any order. The Power Wheel allows the player to either gain one Faeria, draw one card, or to place land tiles onto the game board; this can be either two Neutral (Prairie) land tiles, or one tile representing Mountain, Forest, Desert, or Lake. New tiles can only be placed next to tiles the player previously placed, or adjacent to tiles one of their creatures occupy.
