How to play Urban Cards

Customize your deck in Urban Cards by choosing from 102 cards, carefully selecting your workers, special powers and businesses. Hire different types of workers, from clueless interns to savvy IT specialists, construct and upgrade real estate, and employ cunning henchmen to defend, steal, or bury the competition in debt. Win by making more money than your opponent, or by bankrupting them!

Explore three different districts, each with its own unique faction, bringing their own special playstyle and starter card set:

  • Oper: The realm of the millionaire CEO, the workaholic suit, and the dangerous smile of a lending shark. Bedazzled by generous bonuses, but be careful of its ferocious appetite for debt.
  • Akibara: The technology valley controlled by gamers, hackers, and neon lights. Being virtual doesn’t mean to be weak, and online attacks, from trolls to otaku, is this faction’s main mode of attack.
  • Gastown: The poor and forgotten inhabitants are adept at sabotaging their opponent, stealing from their business while ruling the streets. This do-or-die faction doesn’t shy away from a healthy dose of physical violence to achieve its aims.

Not for the faint-hearted, Urban Cards’ singleplayer campaign lets you square up against mobsters, ruthless money lenders, or cybernetically-enhanced hackers, to finally compete against the oppressive power of the greatest finance institution itself: the government.

Urban Cards is currently in Early Access and will be regularly updated with new cards, opponents, events, and other exciting content!
