Eclipse of Edenhorde is a card game currently in its Early Alpha release. It is set in the same fictional universe as the Edenhorde series, including the NFT collection, lore, and other media. Players get to immerse themselves further into the world of Edenhorde.
As an Oru Commander, the player leads their Oru tribe in a battle for dominance. Through strategic card-based 1v1 gameplay, players get to wield cards with specific stats and abilities in battle until they defeat their opponent.
Let's dive into the game's mechanics, cards, card abilities, and turn-taking.
The game takes place on a 2x4 grid where each player takes a side: the player who created the match shall be the Defender, while the other acts as the Attacker. Both players have 15 HP at the start. In order to win, you need to deplete your opponent’s health first.
Cards are strategically placed on the board, and they attack and/or defend against the card that is placed directly opposite to them. If the opposite card slot is empty, the attack directly hits the opposing player’s HP.
Each player is given a randomly generated deck of 24 cards at the beginning of the match, with 3 cards already drawn to their hand.
On every card, there are 3 values indicated (at the top left corner):
Card cost - this is the amount of units that a player needs to spend in order to play the card on the board. Card cost ranges from 1 to 7.
Attack value - this shows how much damage the card deals to the opposing card on the board. If there is no opposing card (the slot has been left empty), then the damage is dealt to the opposing player’s HP.
Health value - this shows how much damage the card can take before it dies
Some cards have special abilities that get triggered either when the card is played or when it is destroyed. These are listed as symbols at the bottom right of the card. You can inspect a card while playing to learn more about its abilities.
Here is a list of abilities that some cards have:
This nullifies the first attack received from an enemy card.
This ability causes the card to self-destruct upon executing its first attack.
This lets the card intercept and absorb attacks aimed at unopposed allies (when the card slot is empty).
This ability lets the card attack instantly without waiting for a turn to be activated.
When the card with this ability is defeated, it returns itself to the player’s hand instead of the discard pile.
This reduces the attack power of the opponent card by -1.
On attack, this ability rejuvenates the player’s health equal to its attack value.
This ability carries the power to instantly obliterate any card that it strikes.
This ability lets the card bypass enemy cards and directly damage the opponent’s health.
This inflicts 1 damage to its attacker as a form of retaliation.
The ability lets the card unleash fury so that excess damage will spill over to the opponent’s health.
Turn-Taking and Card Activation
Taking Turns and Spending Units
A turn consists of (1) drawing a card from their pile, (2) placing cards on the board (optional) by spending units, and (3) clicking the End Turn button on the right side of the screen.
Units that were not spent during a turn are carried over to the next turn, which means players can strategize by saving up a lot of units so they can spend further into the game.
The Defender always goes first, followed by the Attacker.
Whenever a card is played, it stays dormant for one turn (you will see the card locked up on the board). This means that it cannot attack or be attacked. After one turn, the card becomes active. However, this does not apply to cards with the “Haste” ability, as they can immediately attack or defend without waiting for a turn in order to be activated.
Each turn is limited to 2 minutes. Once the timer runs out, both players’ actions are revealed and the turn is resolved. The players will keep taking turns until one of them goes down to 0 Health and is defeated.
