Empire of Swords: Advanced Techniques Expansion

The first expansion for Empire of Swords, introducing new gameplay elements and more!

Advanced Techniques is the first expansion for Empire of Swords, the 18-card micro game from Jon Merchant. Empire of Swords started as a small contest entry for the 18-card tuckbox challenge, but it always needed something.

So here we are -

EoS: ADVANCED TECHNIQUES includes streamlined and revised gameplay, 10 new card types, and the introduction of QUICKSTRIKE cards - cards that can be played at any time!

Grab your standard edition of Empire of Swords and combine it with this expansion to create a full deck of 36 cards. All instructions are included inside the tuckbox.

*Requires the base game found here: Empire of Swords
