Similar to other card battlers or collectible card games (CCGs), Inscryption‘s mechanics rely on tried-and-tested rules. But, of course, there are a few twists, too. Some might be a little confusing, especially if you’re new to the genre. Here’s our Inscryption beginner’s guide to help you with basic mechanics, vendors, card upgrades, map encounters, and combat tactics.

Inscryption beginner’s guide – Card combat, map encounters/icons, vendors, and card upgrades
At the start of your Inscryption playthrough, you’ll meet a mysterious being named Leshy. He challenges you to a match and, from this point onwards, you’ll progress and learn from each lesson. Anyway, since we’re discussing several facets and mechanics, I’ve split up our Inscryption beginner’s guide into two sections. You can refer to the pages below for the parts that you need help with:
- I. The basics – Understanding card stats, perks/sigils, resources/mana, and general combat
- II. Progression on the map – Map icons, vendors, and upgrading your cards
