Take the role of a magical merchant competing to sell enchanted rugs in Azetta, a city famous for its custom of hosting local tradeshows where rival spellweavers advertise their wares in wizardly duels. Customers flock to watch the spectacles, and the victors win the glory and the sales!
Stitchcraft is a two-player strategy game where the cards aren't proxies for ogres and dragons - they themselves are the actors in the game. Playing a tapestry unleashes the enchantment woven in, then contributes towards building a winning sales showcase.
With a single spell woven into each of just eight colors of rugs, the rules are simple enough for anyone to play...
...but conquering a cunning opponent is another matter. Practice in single-player mode versus the AI player, then take on other spellweavers in online multiplayer matches. If you ever master a particular Pattern, choose a new one for eight different spells that promote fresh strategic challenges!
