The first three prize cards available are Eye on the Prize, Eyelets and Lookalikes.
Eye on the Prize (-10) - Actions that affect cards in your Field of View must affect this card (if applicable) before any other cards in your Field of View can be affected.
Eyelets (0) - HIDE 1 card in any player's Field of View.
The player may put ('hide') a card in any player's Field of View face down underneath this card. The hidden card is considered not to be in a Field of View (for View-points and action purposes) but may be unhidden (and returned to the Field of View) if the hiding card is moved out of the Field of View (except for being hidden itself). Only the player whose card hid the card may look at the hidden card.
Lookalikes (10) - You DRAW cards equal to the number of players in the game.
These cards may be inserted into any social Viewpoint deck and will also be able to be included in tournament decks where this is allowed by the tournament organiser.
Besides introducing new mechanics and interactions, the introduction of these cards is meant to encourage players to start brewing their own decks. This means that individual players can create their own 70-card Viewpoint 'brew deck' based on the core Viewpoint decks and prize cards and then compete with their decks against other players' brew decks. This concept is in its infancy but, with the introduction of more Viewpoint sets and prize cards, 93 Made Games intends to introduce sanctioned tournaments where people can earn leaderboard points and rewards and compete for the Viewpoint 'Brew Deck' Championships. The key points to consider when playing with brew decks are:
- The objective is still to be the first player to reach 100 or more Viewpoints.
- Each player must have their own 70-card Viewpoint deck and all cards that refer to a Draw Pile refer to a player's own Draw Pile.
- The specific quantities of cards allowable in your deck must not be more than the number of quantity of those cards found in a core deck or for prize cards then no more than three. e.g. You can only have one Shadow card in your deck but you can have up to three Eyelets cards.
- Every player has their own Discard Pile and when a card refers to a Discard Pile, it refers to a player's own Discard Pile. That means for cards like All-Seeing Eye, these can be only be used to get cards out a player's own Discard Pile.
- To avoid confusion and losing cards, all card should be sleeved (hopefully not many of your opponents will have sleeves that are identical to yours).
- All cards function in the same manner as they would if only one deck was being used. i.e. STEAL - You still take cards from an opponent's Hand. SWAP - You still exchange cards between your Field of View and an opponent's Field of View. And so on...
- If in doubt, don't hesitate to chat with our designers who will be able to clarify any query in quick time.
So until we chat again, keep your eye on the prize and happy brewing!
