In Foretold, everyone takes on the role of an aspiring deity. Competitors must build up a Temple, gather Faithful followers and collect powerful Relics in an attempt to wipe their opponents off the map – only one deity can reign eternal in this free-for-all of legendary proportions!
Foretold is a turn-based strategy game that gives players an engrossing experience.
Play features Cards (Faithful, Fate Cards and Relics) and Tiles (Temple) acquired through a central Marketplace board. Games feature a period of economic build-up, preparation for combat, then Raiding and end-game.
Players will align with one of four unique Fate Decks, boosting replay value. Craftiness, table politics and strategic play will determine the winner.

- Players will purchase Tiles from a randomized stack (the Tile Deck) to customize their Temple, which is then arranged strategically to increase hand-size and defenses.

- Each Fate Deck has a powerful set of 20 different cards, in theme with each of the Fates.
A Raiding Party ventures into an opposing Temple, encountering Defenders and Traps along a Tile path to theHeart of the Temple, where the opposing life force dwells. Combat is resolved through dice rolls, with Defenserolling first and combining its total. Faithful played from the Raiding Party must beat defending total or they are forced to retreat. If the Temple is conquered, damage is dealt through Smiting. When an opponent’s life hits zero, they are defeated. The last remaining player has achieved immortality!
