Step into the futuristic world of Red Rising, a dystopian society divided into 14 castes, based on the book series by Pierce Brown. As a representative of a house seeking to ascend to power, you must strategically build a team of followers using a hand of cards. The choice is yours - will you aim to overthrow the oppressive Society or submit to the rule of the powerful Golds? In Red Rising, you'll play a hand-management and combo-building game. At the start of each game, you'll receive a hand of 5 cards. On your turn, you'll deploy one of those cards to a specific location on the board, activating its unique benefit. You'll then acquire the top card from another location, either face up or face down, adding it to your hand to increase your final point total at the end of the game.

At the start of each game in the Red Rising universe, you receive a hand of randomly selected characters which you can use to manipulate the game. You can deploy characters, activate abilities, and add new characters to your hand as the game progresses. Each time you obtain a new character, you receive a special bonus based on where it came from. Purchase your copy of Red Rising and add it to your gaming collection.
