What is the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game?
Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (PACG) is a cooperative card game. 1 to 6 players explore and overcome challenges, improve their characters, and acquire new cards for their character deck.
All you need to start playing at home is a Base Set. Or you can join an Adventure Card Guild event with a single Class Deck. Either way, your character will take part in an Adventure Path - an epic story spanning many unique play sessions and multiple power tiers.
One HUGE change in the updated PACG system is that only 1 boon of each type may be played on any check. No more getting blessed by every player, including yourself. However, this restriction is ignored by cards using the new keyword "freely". Proxy cards replace the many duplicated henchmen we're accustomed to, and in fact remove the distinction between villains and henchmen, leaving only "story banes", which can effectively serve in either role. Another type of proxy is via the keyword "danger". A scenario may declare one bane as its danger, which may then be invoked by various other banes or locations.There are many other new (or promoted) keywords than can be explained in this summary, including: "guard", "close", "new", "suffer", "scourge", "bury pile", "heal", "discards", "reset", "before acting", "after acting", "immunities", "resistances", "vulnerabilities". Locations now include traits, opening up a lot of design options. Imagine rangers performing well in the wilderness. Finally, new cardboard tokens called "markers" can be placed on certain cards (like scourges) to show that the character holding a matching marker is being affected by that card. Along with the proxies, this means that there are no longer any duplicate cards in PACG sets outside of some low-level blessings!
