Wondering how to play Redakai? Well the rules haven’t officially been released yet, but there is plenty of speculation and rumors flying around. Here’s the gist of how you play Redakai cards. Stay tuned as we will update this page as more information comes to light.
Games of Redakai will be played with 2 players against each other. Each player will have up to three characters they control and battle with. These characters will be set in game tray that represents the battlefield. As the game progresses, more cards will be laid on top of these characters, so the tray helps keep everything neat and tidy.
As the characters evolve, take damage, or get powerups, new cards will be layered on top and the overall look of your character will change. The visual effects will include energy blasts, slash marks, armor, and evolution cards which change the overall look of the actual character. Some card will also include stereoscopic 3d animations which will depict the attacks and effects in action as you move back in forth.
Drawing Redakai Cards
You will draw cards from your draw deck (up to six), which has it’s own special holder, and keep your hand of cards on a game screen. This is useful since the cards will be transparent, and harder to hide from your opponent than typical cards. The game screen and plastic draw deck will keep your opponent’s prying eyes away from your deck and hand.
Basic Redakai and Advanced Redakai
Perhaps the most exciting part of this game is that it will have two different rule sets. One rule set will be for basic easy play and appeal to younger children, while the second rule set will allow for more complexity, depth, and strategy and appeal to the older generations as well.
The game will also include Redakai Action Figures which may or may not have a bearing on the game. We do know though that when you swipe your card on an action figure, it will light up and project an actual animation onto a flat surface showing the character moving around. Also, the game will interact with the Redakai Cartoon in some 3D way somehow. We’re not sure how this will work yet, but we are excited to find out!
