Deck Building Games generally have players with the same hand of cards and must purchase cards from a central area to 'build' their decks. The player who manages to create the most efficient deck to beat the monsters or win victory points will win the game. Notable deck-building games include Dominion (the first of its kind), Ascension (a light fantasy game) and the Marvel Legendary series (a co-operative version).

Will you in the end by the Monarch with the largest Dominion? Learn More
