  • Come and go as you please. Feel free to stay for an hour one week and four hours the next!

KeyForge is the first-ever “Unique Deck Game,” meaning each of the game’s pre-built decks has been mathematically crafted to be completely one-of-a-kind among over 104 quadrillion possibilities.
Decks never change, so the real challenge of the game is to master your knowledge of the cards and outplay your opponent.
When you sit down to play a game of KeyForge, you and your opponent will assume the roles of a mighty Archons with their own unique name and symbol. Your path to victory is to gather Æmber, forge three keys and unlock one of the Crucible’s hidden vaults!
