Lucky Duck brings innovative deck builder Mutants to retail

“Mutants is an innovative deck-builder where players lead a team of genetically modified gladiators. Starting with a fully symmetric hand of cards, players have 5 rounds to breed the best possible gladiators from their assymetric, uniquely crafted, gene pool and impose their strategy on the arena!”

Mutants – the Card Game is a successful November 2018 Kickstarter Project from producer Lucky Duck Games and designers Sen-Foong Lim (Belfort) and Jessey Wright (Kingdom Rush: Rift in Time). In this 2-4 player deck builder, players mix and match genetics starting with the same cards, but shopping within an asymmetric “gene pool” market. Each player’s gene pool can be pre-constructed or drafted, and the 4 included pre-constructed sets allow easy start to play. Players each get a hand of 6 cards, and the round ends when players run out of cards. Cards can have deploy effects which activate when the card is played, and leave effects for when a card is pushed out of the player board. On a turn players get one of 3 actions: Breed allows players to gain a new card for battle this round. Incubate saves a card for battle next round. Deploy plays a card from a player’s hand to their active mutant slot. Games last 5 rounds, after which players score points for mutants “frozen” into their archives.
