Life Forms

This is the language of the Time Lords, Gallifreyan. Each symbol spells out the symbol’s name.

Card Frames

  • The cards you play on the board will be displayed as miniaturized versions of the frame you have selected for it in your collection.
  • Frames are selected per unique card, meaning if you select the Silver frame for e.g. one of your Cyberguards, it won’t affect all of your other Cyberguards.
  • This also means that each card you own has its own native frames and progression system. Unlocking the Gold frame for one Cyberguard doesn’t unlock it for any other Cyberguards you own.
All visuals are work in progress and subject to change
