What is Prismata?

Prismata is an easy-to-learn, fast-paced hybrid strategy game that borrows familiar elements from real-time strategy games, collectible card games, and tabletop strategy games, combining them in a radical new way. Think “turn-based StarCraft”, but without a map. Or, think of Hearthstone with workers and build orders instead of decks.

In Prismata, instead of having decks, each player has access to a pool of units available for purchase. The unit pool is randomly generated at the start of every game, and is different every time, so players can’t memorize preplanned openings or play the same build orders over and over again. Other than the initial setup and the coin toss to decide who goes first, Prismata has NO RNG WHATSOEVER. This makes the game a completely level playing field and true test of skill—the winner will be the player that best plans and executes their strategy.

Prismata is still in Alpha, so most graphics are not final.

Tourney format

The preliminary stage of the tournament will consist of a 5-game round robin in which each player plays every other player. Games will be played using 45 second time controls, and the Base + 8 Prismata unit set. Any tiebreaks, if necessary, will be played using “Rapid” time controls. The top two players will be invited to a special final match that all other players will spectate!

Tune in on Thursday, November 20th at 6:30pm EST!
