Frequently Asked Questions

 

Gameplay

How does the celestial phase work within the game?

The Celestial phase is located at the top of the card and is divided into 2 types, Moon alignment and Sun alignment. Certain Ghoul cards have a Full Moon alignment. When a player has 2 cards with a Full Moon alignment, they gain the special ability to summon a Lagim card from the deck. To play, the player declares the action and shows 2 cards with Full Moon alignment. The player then draws from the top of the Lagim card deck. The 2 cards with the Full Moon alignment that has been used to summon a Lagim card stays in player’s hand. The player’s turn ends. Note that this special ability can only be activated once per game.

How can I gain Lagim cards at the start of the game?

At the start of the game, each player is handed with 4 Baryo cards. In order to gain Lagim cards, the active player can choose 1 move from the following actions:

Draw a Lagim card from the Lagim deck and battle it –  If the player wins the battle by surpassing the card’s Entity Level, the Lagim card is captured. However, if the player does not have the necessary cards to defeat the Lagim card, they lose the battle and consequently lose a Soul coin to the Forest, and must replenish with a new set of cards.

Play the Dark Soul coin – Playing the Dark Soul coin instantly grants the player 2 cards from the Lagim deck.

Play Card Abilities – Certain standalone Baryo cards such as Altar ng Kulam (Witch’s altar) card has a special ability to summon a Mangkukulam (Witch/Warlock) card from the Lagim deck.

Sacrifice a Soul Coin – If for any reason the player wishes for a new set of cards, they can voluntarily sacrifice a Soul coin to discard their hand and draw 4 new cards from the Baryo deck.

Playing Lagim is all about strategy: using the cards at your disposal, outplay your enemies by weighing the risks and deciding which course of action gives you the best possible chance of winning. (Please see the Actions section of the mechanics for a more detailed explanation of game actions.)
