  • 12.[DLRM] Delirium

Every expansion above can be played alone without the basic game, by design.

Since some sets share same mechanics, there are some combinations, which work together.


  • 0+1: CotG + RotF: Chronicles of the Godslayer & Return of the Fallen
  • 2+3: SoS + IH: Storm of Souls & Immortal Heroes – for the Event cards
  • 4+5: RoV + DU: Rise of Vigil & Darkness Unleashed – for Treasure and Transform
  • 6+7: RU + DoC: Realms Unraveled & Dawn of Champions – for multi-facition heros, constructs, and synergies between them
  • 8+12+13: DS + DLRM + DLV: Dreamscape & Delirium & Deliverance [No Recommended for Balance] – for Insight Mechanic

Note: Gift of the Elements (10)[GotE], can play well with many sets. You can try it out yourself.
