Inscryption – Horror Card Game

About This Game

From the creator of Pony Island and The Hex comes the latest mind melting, self-destructing love letter to video games. Inscryption is an inky black card-based odyssey that blends the deckbuilding roguelike, escape-room style puzzles, and psychological horror into a blood-laced smoothie. Darker still are the secrets inscrybed upon the cards…

In Inscryption you will…

  • Acquire a deck of woodland creature cards by draft, surgery, and self mutilation
  • Unlock the secrets lurking behind the walls of Leshy’s cabin
  • Embark on an unexpected and deeply disturbing odyssey

Endless Scrapyard

Required Cards

  • 1x Energy Conduit
  • 1x Steel Mice
  • 1x Bone Heap
  • 1x Any conduit card (I recommend a Factory Conduit)


  1. Reach 4 maximum energy.
  2. Have the above cards in your hand.
  3. Play your conduit cards to the left-most and right-most lanes to activate the Energy Conduit.


  1. Destroy any of your cards in the inner-left and inner-right lanes with the hammer.
  2. Play Steel Mice to any empty space without losing energy due to the activated Energy Conduit and keep a copy of Steel Mice due to its effect.
  3. Continue until a satisfactory quantity of bones have been farmed in the same turn.

Final Blow

  1. Destroy all your remaining cards with the hammer.
  2. Play Bone Heap to any space that will allow it to directly attack.
  3. Activate the ability of Bone Heap until you can no longer afford the bone cost.
  4. End your turn and watch as your Bone Heap deal an absurd amount of overkill damage in a single blow.
