BattleCON is a head-to-head battle card game that simulates the action and tactics of a one-on-one duel. Each player chooses one fighter from among a vast, diverse cast, and does battle against an opponent's fighter.
Each fighter has their own selection of cards which are unique to them, as well as a pool of cards which are shared among all fighters. By linking their unique styles to the standardized bases, fighters can form original moves with many different interactions.
Fighters also possess Unique Abilities (or UAs) which are new sub-systems that interact with their abilities. One fighter uses elemental stances, while another can charge powerful spells over time. One fighter sets up environment effects on the board, while another might control drones which attack at range.
There are nearly 100 fighters available in BattleCON, and no two have the same Unique Ability.

Beyond being the most critically-lauded fighting card game on the market, BattleCON is also a central part of a continuing series of games: the World of Indines series.
The persistent story and world brings characters to life among our many other games. The development of the world, characters, and story over time are just another part of the game's broad appeal.
While you don't need to play any other game in the World of Indines series to enjoy BattleCON, you may recognize your favorite fighters and their mechanics in games such as Argent: the Consortium, Pixel Tactics, Disc Duelers, Seven Card Slugfest, Sellswords, Millennium Blades, and Empyreal: Spells & Steam!

Over the past 7 years, BattleCON has racked up tons of critical acclaim by top reviewers. But you don't have to take our word for it—check out the reviews!
BattleCON: Unleashed is the storage box you've been waiting for. At 17x13x8.5" (approx. 43x33x21cm) this box is being built to hold up to 110 fighter tuckboxes, a game board, and rulebook.
In addition to a big storage box for your fighters, Unleashed comes with tuckboxes and base sets to bring BattleCON: War and BattleCON: Fate up to the high component standard set in Trials. In total, it includes:
BattleCON: Unleashed and The Grand Chronicle are being printed to order, which means only a few leftover copies will available in our online store after the project ends. We do not plan to reprint Unleashed or The Grand Chronicle—once they're gone, they're gone!
BattleCON: Devastation is the biggest and most fully-featured box in BattleCON's long history. Containing 30 fighters, 5 different play modes, 6 solo/co-op dungeons, and 4 massive boss battles, Devastation is one of the most full-featured tabletop games ever realized.
We've remastered Devastation, bringing it up to date with:
Already own Devastation? The Upgrade kit (included with any CONTINUE tier or as an add-on) patches the original Dev and gets you the two new fighters included in the full Dev: Remastered.
The upgrade kit does not include a new box, board, BattleQUEST book, arenas, or any components for the original 30 Dev fighters. BattleQUEST does not have any mechanical changes with this update.
Wanderers contains ten brand-new fighters created by veterans of the series, tuned and balanced meticulously by our design team!
Wanderers is a complete, standalone game, just like other entries in the BattleCON series. Any fighter in Wanderers can compete with any fighter in any other BattleCON game, and the complete contents of Wanderers will fit cleanly into the BattleCON: Unleashed big storage box!
The Grand Chronicle is the culmination of years of lore-writing, character design, and artwork. It covers the whole of the World of Indines, including side titles like Pixel Tactics, Disc Duelers, Empyreal: Spells & Steam, and Argent: the Consortium, plus concepts from a few upcoming projects we're working on!
Divided into sections by game according to the world's timeline, the book contains the complete saga of Indines lore as presented in current games, along with extended art galleries and lore. It's the ultimate companion for any World of Indines Fan!
Though Unleashed is the last BattleCON Kickstarter project we plan to do, we intend to continue maintaining the game through tournaments, balance patches, and periodic character/box releases. Our most important legacy of BattleCON is in BattleCON Online.
BattleCON Online is currently in Early Access on Steam, and our plan is to continuously develop it with new characters, new modes, and new balance patches. It's the best way to play with friends and rivals from across the world and hone your skills!
