Disney Lorcana - An immersive trading card game. Wield magic inks and the power of Lorcana to assemble your team of Disney characters. Some characters will be familiar friends. Others will be fantastically reimagined.
Disney Lorcana is a trading card game set in the rich and magical world of Lorcana, you play as an Illumineer, who is tasked with assembling a team of Disney characters. You'll wield six magical inks to summon glimmers of these characters.
Each game is a race to collect 20 Lore which players collect by having their summoned characters "quest" on a turn. Almost every character card has between 1-4 Lore symbols on them, and players collect those Lore automatically when a character quests, which also exerts them. To stymy an opponent's chase for 20 Lore, players can challenge any exerted character, causing simultaneous damage to both the challenger and the challenged.
However, only exerted characters can be challenged, so a player can attempt to protect a valuable character simply by opting for a character to do nothing on a turn. In addition to Character cards, there are also Item and Action cards. Item cards tend to stay in play, providing buffs or additional benefits, while Action cards have one-time effects that range from damaging an opponent's characters to drawing additional cards.
