About Flesh and Blood

Flesh and Blood (FAB) is a new trading card game, set in the fantasy world of Rathe. You play as a hero, with many classic fantasy classes to choose from. The first FAB product, Welcome to Rathe, introduces Warrior, Guardian, Ninja, and Brute! The class of the hero you choose, dictates the cards you can include in your deck.

Each class has a unique play style. If you like agile synergy, then flip open a pack of Ninja. Robustly powerful? Guardians’ your man. Reckless destruction? Bellow for a Brute! Tactical precision? Duty awaits, noble Warrior.

FAB introduces a completely new and innovative game system to the TCG industry, based on the design philosophy of:

  • Start full
  • Reduce variance
  • Every card counts
  • Reward good decisions, not good luck

Every turn of every game there are plays you can make. No mulligans required. During most games, you will see every card in your deck at least once. Games are won through the accumulation of many small decisions, not through slamming “a dragon” and riding it to victory.

Tournament Play

Flesh and Blood is designed for constructed, sealed deck, and booster draft tournament play.

At the World Premiere, all matches will be best-of-one, with the exception of the final match, which will be best-of-three.

The FAB game system is designed to reduce variance. Simply, the player who makes the most “best decisions” in a single game match, will win the vast majority of their matches.

About Ira, Crimson Haze

Ira, Crimson Haze welcome deck is designed for an incredible first play experience. Ira will teach you the fundamentals of FAB while simultaneously showing you how much depth there is to the FAB game system.

The Ira Welcome Deck is a cohesive deck with very high replayability. Even the most accomplished TCG player will appreciate the depth of gameplay offered by Ira welcome decks.
