We compiled some Q&A on DC, and put it on this page here of our site.http://www.dungeoncrawler.com/ccg/information.php
There are many questions arising about Dungeon Crawler CCG that have less to do about how to play the game and more about the overall product line. So we've put together some answers for some of the most commonly asked non-rule questions about DC below.Where is DC Located?
Gifted Vision is a Canadian based company and we are now warehousing some of our product in the states.Is DC an Actual CCG?
In short, yes, DC is collectible. Although you can buy 1 whole set of Rares by purchasing one Unbound Starter and one Unbound Booster box, which are seeded or fixed. The "collectible" part comes in the fact that you can also buy single Booster packs of 10 cards if you are on a smaller budget or just want to try out some new material for the game rather than committing to a big purchase.
1 Starter + 1 Booster Box = 1 whole set of Rares.Four Playable Formats
Dungeon Crawler supports 4 standard formats of play; solitaire (1 player), competitive (2 player), cooperative (2-4 players) and multi-player (3-6 players).
Solitaire can be played indefinitely with just the Starter. Cooperative and Multi-player can be played if each player has a Starter. All 3 of these formats can be improved with Boosters.
Competitive, due to it's very nature is a special case. It is best done using a constructed format (building your decks before arriving to your matches). Since 4 is the maximum number of any single card you can have in either your Crawler or Dungeon deck we recommend picking up four starters and four booster boxes to maximize your ability to construct competitive decks.Four Rarities = Yikes?
Many people twinge at four upfront rarities (not including promos), but DC Unbound does not have "ultra-rare" or similarily hard to acquire cards. All of the rares can be found in two purchases; the Unbound Starter and the Unbound Booster Box. Each rarity contains 40 cards for the total of 160 cards found in the Unbound set.
DC CCG is extremely easy to collect.
For every 1 Rare (star symbol), you will get 2 Uncommons (diamond symbol), 3 Infrequents (pyramid symbol) and 4 Commons (dot symbol). An easy rule of thumb to know how rare a card is in DC, is to check how many sides it has (dots/circles having 1 side). There are only a certain number of Promos (vortex symbol) ever printed, while sets will stay in print until the next set comes out.What's in the Starter?
The Starter comes with a 40 page player's guide, 30 double sided tokens, 10 Adventure cards (5 Adventurers and 5 Quests), a 65 card Crawler deck and a 65 card Dungeon deck (that's 140 cards in total). All of these cards are "fixed" which means that all Starters are identical. There are 14 of 40 rares found within the starter that are exclusive to the starter.What's in the Booster Boxes?
The booster boxes contain 26 booster packs (each with 10 cards) and have all 26 of the remaining rare cards. Although all of the cards are found in each of these boxes they are randomly mixed within. This is something we refer to as "seeding".
The Boosters are currently at sea and then must face customs, the earliest we can expect them will be October.Do We Support Leagues?
Right now we are all about educating the public about playing the game. We do support Leagues for storefronts that order directly from us. Assuming they go through a distributor, the storefront will need to make arrangements with us to get league support as we can not track non-direct sales.
We are beginning an Exemplar program where volunteers can organize games and earn points towards special items.Will There Be Tournaments?
Currently there is nothing planned, but we do wish to have this in the near future. Once we feel we can support a tournament environment we will jump on board. We do run Contests each month for free product/merchandise/promos on our site. We fully encourage organizers that wish to run local tournaments in lieu of a game day (league).What Can a Player Expect in the Future?
While we are working on our next booster set, we plan to release smaller expansion packs to keep the experience fresh. These expansion packs are under development and will be released once the game can sustain itself. Once we get in to our production routine we plan to have a new Starter set released every 3 years.Improved Production Line.
After our rather lengthy experience with customs and a terrible series of disappointments with our printers, we will be moving our production closer to home where we can have better control over the quality and the timeline of our products.
