Set in the trap-riddled prison of Vincenzo Natali's Cube, this deck sees players trying to pick their way through a maze of cuboid chambers, avoiding a variety of dangerous and grisly traps. Note that this deck contains a few (arguable) spoilers.

Special Rules

Doors

A Player may, in place of an Action, "go through a door" - they should draw a card and reveal it to all Players. If it is a "Trap" card, any Player may discard a copy of that card from their hand, or sacrifice a Companion they control, to negate its effects. If not negated, the Trap takes effect. If the card is not a Trap, the Player may keep it.

Knowledge

Trap cards drawn outside of "going through a door" have no effect - they signify knowledge of that trap, while in a Player's hand.

Death

When a Player dies, they discard their hand and leave the game.
