Radlands is a competitive, dueling game about identifying fiercely powerful card synergies.
Act as the leader of your post apocalyptic group of survivors in a tooth-and-nail fight to defend your three camps from a vicious rival tribe. If all of them are destroyed, you will lose the game.
The primary resource in the game is water. You will spend it to play people and events, as well as to use the abilities of cards you already have on the table. People defend your camps and provide useful abilities, while events are powerful effects that take time to pay off.
Both players take cards from the same deck. All cards may either be played to the table or discarded for quick “junk” effects. To win, you will need to manage both your cards and water wisely.
