A collaboration between legendary game designer Richard Garfield and Valve.
Artifact is a trading card game made and published by Valve. It combines deeply-strategic, competitive gameplay with the rich setting of Dota 2. The result is an immersive and visually-stunning trading card game unlike any other. It’s up to you to decide the best way to navigate the constantly shifting tide of battle.

- FUN WITH FRIENDS. If you’ve played card games around a kitchen table, you know the enjoyment that can come with house rules. Artifact allows you and your friends complete control in creating a tournament. Simply select your elimination or non-elimination format and deck constraints; then, challenge your friends to a crucible of your own design.
Artifact is one of the greatest CCG game ever to be made. It's made by Richard Garfield, the guy who created MTG! Need I say more? Suffice to say that the game is comprised of a multitude of mechanics, each of which is like its own "mini-game" within the larger game. What makes Artifact a masterpiece of a card game is that it is so much more than the sum of its parts. The way that the individual elements fit together to make a single whole is simply extraordinary and the result of decades of refinement. The game is deep and balanced, rewards skill, and is a ton of fun. The game allows for a game mode where you don't need any cards to play (draft mode) and instead you pick out of a pile of random cards from the entire game. You can also expect from Valve plenty of content updates from the game for at least a few years. The graphics being great enhance the fun factor even further and the cost for cards is the best in the entire industry. I am excited to see Artifact thrive. Valve have created a gripping, addictive game that, unlike anything else in the genre, can truly leave you on the edge of your seat. So if you are at least mildly interested, go ahead and give it a try. It's very unlikely you will regret it.
