Skyward is a strategy card drafting game of control versus opportunity for 2-4 players. After generations of turmoil, the four factions in Skyward have put their differences aside to work together for a better tomorrow! As a commitment to this alliance, the world’s first airborne city, named Skyward, is to be built above the intersecting borders of the four realms. Tasked with building this new city, you and other cultural luminaries vie for control by becoming the Warden, and ultimately declared "Founder of Skyward."
Skyward uses a unique card drafting mechanic where the first player, the Warden, draws the cards to be drafted by each player and then uses an "I split, you chose" style of gameplay for players to draft cards to then Launch buildings to build Skyward, the airborne city. The Warden has great power in splitting the cards for drafting but chooses last in turn order, so key strategic decisions will help shape each turn and each game uniquely!
