The gameplay of Artifact: The Dota Card Game takes place across a field of three boards. The boards are also known as lanes, as they correspond to the three different lanes of Dota 2.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Boards serve as the primary avenue for interacting with the game-state. Cards are cast onto one of the three boards, summoning heroes, units and other effects. Boards can have Improvements attached to them, which provide a continuous effect for every turn spent on that board.
Once play is finished on a board, the game moves to the adjacent board to the right, until all three boards have been played on.
