Heroes of Karth: Deathmatch™ is a fantasy deck-building card game based on the Heroes of Karth™ book series. Deathmatch can be played with 1-4 players in 5 different game modes:

  • 1 vs. 1 (play against one opponent)
  • 2 vs. 2 Co-op (play with a friend against two others)
  • 3 & 4 Player Free-for-all (play a survivor match)
  • Adventure Mode (play as the Dungeon Master against up to 3 Adventurers)
  • Single Player Mode (Battle against Xeon the Undead Dragon)

In Heroes of Karth: Deathmatch™ you and your opponent join either the Allegiance (Elf) or the Shard (Goblin) faction. Decide your fighting style ahead of time with 12 different pre-made Starter Decks or build your own to suit your particular style. Choose 2 hero cards to lead your unit cards! Arm yourself with spell and treasure cards!! Then hire and position your cards onto the battlefield and fight a deathmatch, with victory coming to the first to collect 40 gold or 25 kill points!

Players try and outwit their opponent’s strategy in a tabletop game where the cards are the game pieces and players use gold to spawn additional cards onto the battlefield. Balance between using gold to hire units, mercenaries and heroes and saving your gold for the win condition. Utilize a wide range of strategies including ranged or melee classes, spells, pets, magic items, traps, poison, stealth units, healers, totems, and the undead curse. With over 200 cards rendered with stunningly beautiful original artwork, the deck-building choices are unlimited. Play a deathmatch where the careful management of resources and placement of your cards can make the difference between winning and losing!

Coming Soon: We are in the process of developing the Dwarf versus Orc Expansion.


The next venture starts on Roll20 with all of our artwork being made available as tokens. Check out our heromonstergoblin and elf products and make heroes of karth chracters come to life in your RPG games! We will also be creating a series of one-off “adventures” using 5e DND characters and smashing it into League of Legends and Warcraft III resulting in what we are calling “Heroes of Karth: Adventures“.

We are pretty excited with all of the adventure ideas we have to help entertain everyone while creating something new and fresh that will be both fun to play and challenging.
