What Is Lorcana?
Lorcana is the name of the world where Disney Lorcana takes place. But it’s not just any world. It’s a world where magic is everywhere and where different dimensions meet. Imagine a place where you can find all kinds of Disney characters, from different movies, genres and eras. A place where you can see what would happen if Elsa met Jack Sparrow or if Stitch teamed up with Mulan. A place where you can discover new versions of your favorite characters, like a steampunk Alice in Wonderland, a pirate Rapunzel or a space Aladdin.
Sounds awesome, right? Well, it is! And it’s all thanks to Lorcana.
Lorcana is the name of the force that binds together all these dimensions. It’s also the name of the magic that you can use to create portals, change reality and summon characters from different movies. Lorcana is what makes Disney Lorcana possible and fun.
How To Play Disney Lorcana?
Now that you know what Lorcana is, let me tell you how to play Disney Lorcana. It’s not hard at all. In fact, it’s super easy and super fun. All you need is a starter pack and at least one opponent. A starter pack contains 60 cards, including 2 foil cards of the characters on the package front, 11 game tokens, 1 rulebook and 1 booster pack (with 12 random cards). How awesome is that?!
Character cards are the cards that show different Disney characters with different attributes, abilities and costs. They are the stars of the show and the ones that you will use to create your team and fight your battles. Each character card has four things: a name, an image, an ink cost (the amount of ink that you need to play it) and an ability (a special effect that you can use when you play it).
Ink cards are the cards that show different colors of ink that you need to play character cards. They are the fuel of the game and the ones that you will use to pay for your characters and their abilities. Each ink card has one thing: a color (duh). There are six colors of ink: Amber, Amethyst, Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire and Steel.
The game is about you and your opponent taking turns to play character cards from your hands to your teams. To play a character card you have to pay its ink cost by using ink cards from your ink well (a pile of ink cards next to your deck). For example, if you want to play a character card that has 4 red ink cost, you have to use 4 red ink card from your ink well. Easy peasy, right?
But Wait, There’s More! Abilities Are Not Just About Their Effects, But Also About Their Costs And Timing
When you have played a character card you can use its ability if it has one (not in the first run). Abilities are the special effects that make the game more fun and interesting. They can be different things, like giving you more ink, damaging your opponent, protecting your characters or affecting the game rules. For example, an ability that says “Draw a card” lets you draw a card from your deck (duh). Many abilities have a cost, like exhausting the character (shown as a symbol with a swirling arrow) or paying more ink. For example, an ability that says “Exhaust this character: Draw a card” lets you draw a card from your deck if you exhaust the character.
But wait, there’s more! When you don’t want or can’t play more character cards you end your turn. Then it’s your opponent’s turn to do the same. The game continues until one of the players reach 20 lore or can’t draw more cards from their deck. That player loses and the other player wins.
But wait, there’s more! Just kidding, that’s it for the rules in this Disney Lorcana guide.
That’s a short introduction to how you play Disney Lorcana. It’s simple, right? But don’t let the simplicity fool you. The game is also deep and strategic. You have to think about which characters to play and when to play them. And think about which abilities to use and how to use them. And also to think about which inks to save and which inks to spend. You have to think about how to deal with your opponent’s characters and abilities, and about how to win the game.
