A Glimpse into Parallel’s Gameplay
For those unfamiliar with Parallel, it’s a sci-fi-themed Trading Card Game (TCG) with an array of innovative mechanics. The game follows the standard TCG format, where players construct a deck of cards and engage in duels, with the first player to reduce their opponent’s life to zero emerging victorious.
Parallel cards come in three types: units, effects (spells), and relics, each playing a unique role in the game. The game introduces five ‘Parallels,’ which are akin to gods, summoners, or champions in other TCGs, adding an intriguing layer of strategy.
In Parallel, players build decks of 40 cards, with the option to include up to three copies of each card (Legendary cards are an exception, limited to one per deck). Players can use cards from one Parallel and those marked as Universal. Additionally, each player selects a Paragon for their deck, offering passive bonuses throughout the match and functioning as in-play units with unique stats and effects.
Parallel’s mana/energy system requires players to ‘bank’ cards from their hand, with each card banked increasing their maximum energy each turn. The game begins with zero energy, and players must bank at least one card per turn. On the turn a card is banked, players draw an extra card at the end of their turn, adding a dynamic layer to the gameplay.
Parallel’s Planetfall expansion offers a fresh infusion of gameplay elements and cards to captivate players and enhance the game experience. With its enticing blend of strategy and sci-fi allure, Parallel is looking to be at the forefront of Web3 TCG games.
