Imajica is a customizable card game for two or more players. Customizable card games are different from a “standard” card game in one important way: each player uses only cards from their own custom-built deck. Players’ cards are never shared. One player never draws cards from another’s deck, but the cards can and will affect the other players. The game can be played with the starter deck you have just purchased, but the exciting part of the game is mixing and matching different cards, creating a deck of card that suits your own unique style of play. You can do this by attaining new cards, either by trading with friends, or purchasing Imajica expansion packs. Each card in the set has unique uses in the game.
Decks may be built from a wide variety of cards, in an even wider variety of combinations. The strategies and themes a deck can have is limited only by the imagination of the players.
