About This Game
Deck Building With a TwistRandomized turn order, no shuffling, and multiple win and loss conditions make this a deck building experience like no other!“This is not the end of the world. That already happened. This is what is left: us, gravehold, and the Nameless. For generations we have taken refuge in an ancient and haunted place. It has taken our mages an aeon to hone their craft, but they are ready... and they are lethal. The breaches, the very conduits through which the Nameless travel, have become our weapon.”
-Yaleesa Rhykk, Gravehold survivor
The situation is bleak. The final city - Gravehold
- needs the power of the breach mages to hold back the Nameless. Join the fight, and maybe… just maybe, Gravehold will live to see another dawn.Aeon’s End
is a deck-building game where you create a team of up to 4 mages who will fight cooperatively to defeat whichever Nameless nemesis has come through the breach today. You begin with a starting deck of 10 cards, 5 in hand. Each turn you play gems
to gain aether
, which is used to buy new gems and relics
, learn new spells
, and increase your casting potential by opening additional breaches
. You can also play relics to give yourself or your allies a boost. Then prep
spells to your opened or focused breaches to be ready to cast
them on your subsequent turns.
What makes Aeon’s End unique is how it uses randomness
. Unlike other deck building games, players do not shuffle their deck when it runs out. The order in which you discard is preserved so plan your discards carefully to set yourself up for subsequent turns.
Instead, randomness in Aeon’s End comes in the order of turns. At the start of each round, the turn order deck
is shuffled to determine the order of play. Will the nemesis go twice in a row, pushing back the mages’ defense? Will the mages get 4 turns in a row to set up for the coming onslaught? It can be hard to know what’s coming next when you are deep in the melee!
Finally, there’s the city of Gravehold
. The breach mages of Aeon’s End are not just fighting for their own survival, but the survival of all of humanity, and the Nameless know it. If Gravehold is ever reduced to 0 life, the mages have lost and humanity is but a memory. Protect the city at all costs!

Aeon's End user review
This is great digital adaption and flows very well. The card icons work even on a small screen and the AI enemy’s actions are clear to understand even when it plays a series of events.
Beautiful rendition of Aeon's End. A very very good board game which has been translated into the computer version and does a brilliant job of doing. Love it and can't wait till they add the expansions.
Faithful adaption of a great boardgame.
Solid adaptation of one of my favourite board games. Looking forward to seeing it grow. For those who need their computer games to look sleek and flashy it might not appeal - for me it is enough to have the mechanics faithfully recreated in such a way that I don't have to bother with setup and teardown should I just want a quick game in the evening.
Pretty good port. I come from the board/ card game and as much as I like it - the set up/ tear down can be a faff. This eliminates that issue. Gfx are pretty basic but do the job. Would be nice to be able to play/ return multiple cards at a time rather than drag and drop individuals.
This is a PC port for the boardgame Aeons End, a coop deckbuilder in which you play as mages fighting to defend the last bastion of humanity against terrible monsters.
A bit of a disclaimer here: This review is mostly going to be about Aeon's End itself, rather than talking much about the specific aspects of this digital version (as many reviews already focus on that). Besides, it's Handelabra. They know their stuff, and yes, this PC port of the game is well done. Also, I'm going to make some comparisons to Sentinels of the Multiverse, as many of you likely already know that one.
My Biases: I backed this on kickstarter not because I have played the physical game but because I really like the developer and the game seemed to be very fun if their streams were any indication. I really enjoy the game from what I have done so far.
(Disclaimer: I know the physical boardgame a bit and like it very much)
Whilst this is a faithful adaptation of the (1st edition) physical game, I asked for a refund simply because there are no AI mages.
Solid digital version of a great board game
I had actually bought the boxed version of the game, hoping to learn how to play this incredibly deep deckbuilder game. When the Early Access version came out, I jumped on the opportunity to buy it (one of the few full price games that I've purchased), knowing that Handelabra would produce a solid digital version of the tabletop game. And they did, now that it's a full retail version. It took me about two hours to grasp how the spells and relics work together, but I am still learning how the boss (so-called Nemesis) gains in casting strength to summon minions and play powers. There is a lot to grasp about the how each of the four different Nemesis bosses work and how to build a solid team of Breach Mages, so I am really glad for a digital version that takes the error-prone paperwork and card mechanics out of my hands.
In this video I take a look at Aeon's End, a card combat game.
Fantastic game. Fantastic implementation. Not much more to say...it immediately made me go out and buy the physical game and several expansions, which is about the highest praise I can give a game like this.
Another great digital port of a difficult but fun tabletop game!
It's a direct translation of the tabletop game. The tabletop game is good.
