The rules for the game are available to download from their website and The Sentry Box has three sets of the print and play decks available for people to use at the event. These print and play decks have a reduced 60 card set taken from the 120 cards that will be available at release.

The store has also backed the Kickstarter for this project and we are taking pre-orders for the ten card sets (plus promos) that we will be getting in during September. The shipping product will retail for approximately $20 US and contain 120 cards.
