Introduction and Game Overview
What is Mutology?
Mutology is a monster-maker expandable card game (XCG) for two players. Before a game begins, players construct a 45-card main deck using Mutology XCG cards. A main deck consists of Units, Modifications, and Procedures. This main deck is paired with one Character card and an optional second deck. To win the game, players must bring their opponent’s Base health from 20 to 0 by executing a strategy which complements the talents of their Character and Mutant units in their deck.
Ambitious dreamers. Dangerous thinkers. Mad scientists! These are labels the world will grant us: for we are mutologists, bioengineers of the future! This progressive branch of science has only just been discovered, and nations scramble to assert themselves as the next global superpower. By creating new lifeforms called Mutants, your nation establishes precedence in this burgeoning scientific field. However, only by destroying your rival’s Base can you claim to be the superior scientist.
Players gain a fixed amount of resources at Turn Start, and spend this resource to play cards from hand or activate abilities on cards already in play. Radiation counters are added to a player's Reactor as Unit, Mod, and Procedure cards are played from hand.
Using these Radiation counters, players unlock powerful abilities on their Mutant units or transform them into more impressive Stage 2 creatures. Players initiate combat using these units until one player's Base health reaches 0, declaring the remaining player victorious!
