HOW TO PLAY LABYRINTH

Labyrinth is a PvP game which marries a Collectible Card Game (CCG) and a tactical turn based RPG.

You play both offense and defense in this game. You build 3 decks of cards for your Heroes that raid someone else's labyrinth. You build 1 deck of cards for your Boss room in your labyrinth--that is your defense. We call the rooms 'encounters'.

On a raid, you win each encounter by defeating the Boss for that encounter. On defense, your Boss wins by defeating all of the raiding Heroes.

When you raid, you move your Heroes when it is their turn. Each Hero can move up to 3 spaces unless a card modifies its movement. (To make it easier, when you are moving your Heroes, you can move the camera by holding down both mouse buttons and moving the mouse.) After moving, you may play cards, which are your spells and your attacks.

Each card has a tick cost in the upper left corner. When you play a card, the tick cost is added to the character's clock, moving them further down in the timeline shown at the top of the gameplay screen. You can see the possible change to the timeline when you hover over a card before you play it. You can also opt to pass the turn for that Hero by using the Guard card, which will add one tick to the character's clock.

When you defend you don’t have to be online. A player raiding your labyrinth attacks the last saved deck you have in your labyrinth. So defense is all about your skill in deck building. Defense plays differently than offense. You only have one Boss per encounter but that Boss can summon minions that help defend.
