3-4 Player Factions Format

(3) FACTIONS: 3-4 PLAYER SINGLETON OR 3-OF-A-KIND CONTRUCTED

Inside each set of Superbeings there's enough cards to play a 3 to 4 player game with less cards used for each master deck. Play Factions when you'd like to play Super Decks that have all of the same color; all Aliens, Androids, etc., and you have a large space to play, and you want to experience the enormity of 3-4 players battling Superbeings at one time.

THE RULES
  • For a 3-4 player game; each player constructs a 15-card Super Deck and 15-card Battle Deck from 1 Superbeings set of 120+ cards OR from all released cards from every set including promos.
  • Players contruct their Super Decks by dividing the Supers into 5 Factions of (Aliens, Androids, Beasts, Clones and Humans). The Xpet Faction is NOT allowed to be selected for this intial Faction selection round.
  • After dividing up the Supers into their Factions, determine who goes first and so on. Player 1 then claims the Supers (10 or more) from an available Faction. Player 2 then does the same and so on until all players have claimed their Supers. Once this rotation is completed, starting with the last player through player 1, drafting is used to select 1 Super at a time from any Supers that are not part of the intial Faction selection round. For example, if (Aliens, Androids, Clones and Beasts were chosen for a 4-player game that would leave available all Human and Xpet Supers to be chosen). Finally, if multiple sets are being used, players can choose to complete their 15 card Super Decks by selecting ALL Supers from the same Faction. Note, the only MANDATORY RULE is there must be at least 10 Supers per Faction from the intial Faction selection round. The remaining 5 Supers can be selected or filled however you want.
  • Players construct their 15 card Battle Decks by drafting 1 Battle card at a time. Whoever went first with the drafting will go second for Battle card drafting.
  • Remember to look for Faction based Battle cards to match up with various Supers to add strategic card combinations to your decks.
  • Of course if you want, building a FACTIONS game around a standard 25-card Super Deck and 25-card Battle Deck is fine providing you have enough cards.
  • Factions is typically played with the singleton constructed deckbuilding rules. They are as follows; (1) A Master Deck can only have 1 copy of any 1 card for both the Super Deck and the Battle Deck, and (2) the 25-card Super Deck must contain 10 or more Supers with a Super Rank of 3 or less.
  • Or play with the 3-of-a-kind constructed deckbuilding rules. They are as follows; (1) A Master Deck can only have up to 3 copies of any 1 card, and (2) the 25-card Super Deck must contain 10 or more Supers with a Super Rank of 3 or less.
  • If the cards used to deck build are not shared, remember to return your opponents cards that get exchanged via in-game card effects.
