Early Access

Learn About the In-Store KeyForge Pre-Launch


Gain early access to the Crucible and to all the action, discovery, and excitement of KeyForge at the upcoming Pre-Launch being held at select retailers!

Starting November 10, you'll be able to find retailers selling a limited number of Archon Decks ahead of the full, official KeyForge release. These stores will also have Learn-to-Play stations, meaning this is your chance to pick up early decks and explore a bit of the Crucible before the Launch Parties begin on November 15!

Forge Your First Keys

Attend a KeyForge Pre-Launch, and you'll get a better sense of what this game is all about.

Yes, it's the world's first Unique Deck Game, and that means that for every deck, there's no other deck exactly like it.

But how does the game play? Well, it's crazy, unexpected, fast… and FUN! None of the cards come with resource costs, so everything is free to play! But you can only activate the cards from one of your deck's three Houses in any given turn.

As a result, you have to learn how to use the cards in your hand and your deck as effectively as possible as you race your opponent to gather Æmber, forge three keys, and claim the secrets hidden within one of the Crucible's many Vaults.

During the Pre-Launch, you'll have your chance to sample all the game's wild and explosive back-and-forth action. Giant creatures! Tiny creatures! Cute creatures! Advanced technology! And wormholes that deposit you in lush jungles! In the Crucible, anything's possible… and it usually happens.

Get Some Swag

Join the rush of players looking to collect their KeyForge decks at the Pre-Launch, and you can even claim some cool swag!

After you learn to play the game in the store, you can collect a special KeyForge lanyard and glossary card (while supplies last). Then, after you purchase your Archon Deck, you can claim a pin for your favorite House (again, while supplies last).

Discover What the Architects Hath Wrought

The Crucible, the world of KeyForge, is a place of many quirks, constant change, and ever-evolving delights. Come discover this world, this game, its many Houses, and their species, cultures, and technology. Come play. Have fun. Gain swag.

Your early access to the Crucible opens on November 10. Attend the KeyForge Pre-Launch at a participating retailer near you!
