Inspired by the Infinite Dvorak Deck and an idea by JakeTheWolfie, Dveck Builder combines the anything-goes nature of Dvorak with the structure of a deck-building game. Expand your deck by buying cards, play through your deck as fast as you can to earn points, and get in the way of your opponents trying to do the same thing!

Decks

Each player starts with their own deck consisting of 5 Blue Shards, 4 Red Shards, and 1 Gold Shard. The rest of the Basic Material cards (Red, Blue, and Gold Shards, Bars, and Slabs) are placed in their own face-up stacks. Sets of Golden Prestige cards totaling 20-30 cards are shuffled to form the prestige deck, and 100 Main Deck cards are shuffled to form the main deck. Put the top 5 cards of the main deck and the top 3 cards of the prestige deck face-up in the middle of the play area. This is the Shop. Whenever there are fewer than 5 main deck cards or fewer than 3 prestige cards in the Shop, add the top card of the appropriate deck to the Shop. A player's cards that are discarded or destroyed are put in that player's own discard pile. Cards that are Trashed are put into a face-up Trash pile belonging to no player. When a card would be drawn from a player's deck (not just looked at) while it is empty, that player first turns their discard pile face-down and shuffles it to make their new deck. This is called Cycling one's deck.

Materials and Buying Cards

Materials are neither Actions nor Things. When a Material is played, it generates a certain amount of coins and remains in play until discarded (As turns become more complex, counters should be used to track a player's coins). A player may buy Basic Material cards from the supply piles or cards from the Shop by spending coins equal to the card's cost, shown in its cornervalue. Actions cost Red Coins to purchase, Things cost Blue Coins, and Materials may be paid for with any combination of Red or Blue coins. Prestige cards' costs are split into two numbers: the first is the card's basic cost, payable in Red or Blue Coins depending on the card's type, and the second is the card's prestige cost, which must be paid in Gold Coins (add the two costs together for the purposes of effects that consider a card's cost). Gold Coins can only be spent on costs that specifically require Gold Coins, or they may be spent to change the color of one of your Red or Blue coins. Purchased cards are acquired and put on top of the buying player's discard pile. Players need to keep track of how many non-Basic cards they have acquired.

On Your Turn

During your turn, you may play up to one Action, up to one Thing, and any number of Materials, and buy up to one card of each type (Action, Thing, and Material). At the end of your turn (after card effects that occur at the end of a turn), discard all Materials you control, lose all your unspent coins, and then discard down to or draw up to your hand size (5 by default). Note that you do not draw at the beginning of your turn.

Victory Points and Ending the Game

Whenever a player cycles their deck, they gain 1 VP (victory point) for every 4 non-Basic cards they have acquired (round down). The game ends either when a player reaches 50 VP, or when the main deck or prestige deck is empty and no cards from that deck remain in the shop. The player with the most VP at the end of the game wins.

Additional Rules and Terms

  • Tokens count as Things. A Token's type is also its name. If a Token moves from play to any other zone, it ceases to exist.
  • Counters are not Things. Counters can have types. They can be placed on cards to track effects, count charges, or whatever else is useful for managing information in the game. Players are free to place counters on cards to track information without needing to be directed to do so by a card, but if a card's text does refer to a type of counter, those counters should only be placed and removed according to that card.
  • If a card played by one player ends up in another player's play area, mark it as being owned by the first player. If it would be destroyed, it goes to its owner's discard pile. (Example: Alice plays a card with the text "Play this into any player's control" into Bob's play area. It is marked as being owned by Alice. Chippy then plays a card with the text "Attach this to another player's Thing" onto that card. Chippy's card is marked as being owned by Chippy. Dave then plays a card that says "Destroy all Things controlled by target player" targeting Bob. Alice's Thing, which Bob controls, goes to Alice's discard pile, and Chippy's card which was attached to it goes to Chippy's discard pile.) Cards that end up in another player's hand, deck, or discard pile are assumed to have changed ownership.
  • Ability is a generic term for Action Abilities, Thing Abilities, and anything else of the form "Bold Text Followed By Colon:". If not otherwise specified, Abilities can only be used during your turn.
  • Effects that occur as a Reaction to an event (e.g. "When a player plays an Action card, as a reaction you may...") take place after the triggering event is declared, but before that event takes effect.
  • To Upgrade a Material is to return it to its supply pile and replace it with a Material of the same color from the next supply pile up (A Blue Shard upgrades into a Blue Bar, a Gold Bar upgrades into a Gold Slab). This is treated as the upgraded card changing rather than leaving the zone it's in, and the new card isn't treated as having entered the zone it's in. Slabs cannot be upgraded. To Downgrade a Material is to return it to its supply pile and replace it with a Material of the same color from the next supply pile down, as with upgrading. Shards cannot be downgraded. Only Basic Materials can be downgraded or upgraded.
  • When you Acquire a card, move it from its location (usually the Shop or its supply pile) to the top of your discard pile, or to another zone as specified by the effect. When you buy a card, you acquire it, but some effects let you acquire a card without buying it. Gaining ownership of a Thing is not the same as acquiring it.
  • A played Action or Ability that is Negated has no effect, as though its text were blank.
  • When a card leaves play, any cards that were attached to it go to their owners' discard piles, unless specified otherwise.
  • When a card's text refers to that card by its name, and another card gains that text, treat the first card's name in that text as though it were the second card's name (If a Thing in play called Ghost Copy has "This Thing has all text of the top card of your discard pile." and the top card of its controller's discard pile is called Boomerang and has the text "Action: Return Boomerang to your hand", Ghost Copy treats that ability as though it said "Return Ghost Copy to your hand").


Design Guidelines

  • Cards in the main deck should not be dependent on specific types of cards or mechanics that are unlikely to be found in any given 100-card subset.
  • Players should be able to interpret the state of the game based on cards that are visible or that were played within the last round, so a card should not produce effects that last significantly longer than the card itself ("Until the end of your next turn" is about as long as players should be expected to remember).
  • Counters exist above the gameplay level, so cards should not interact with counters except their own ("Remove all counters from target Thing" is forbidden, but "When you buy a card, you may add or remove a balance counter from this card" is fine).
  • A Card that produces VP can win games by itself if a player is able to play it repeatedly, either by quickly cycling their deck or returning it from their discard pile. Such a card should have enough restrictions that it doesn't overshadow the standard means of earning VP, granting the player who buys it first an easy win.
