Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20[Music]hello everyone okay you know that I'vebeen meaning to do more tabletop gamingon this channel in general and thanks toa collaboration with light seekers I'mnow able to do that so let me introducemy good friends dan and Tom who havemore experience with this specific cardWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40game than I do so I've invited them hereto play with me today to both show offthis game and just to have a good timeplaying card games and call it work yeahso this game is called light seekersit's a relatively new game yeah andthere are a lot of different componentsto it other than a strategy card gamebut today we're gonna focus on the cardWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00game that it is so if you're someone wholikes other strategy card games I'm Iwas a big MTG player from back in theday I play a lot of hearthstone so thisis right up my alleylike other strategy and trading cardgames you've got a lot of differentdecks you can probably see behind methere are all different starter deckshere the art style on them is super cooland today we're gonna get into thegameplay so without any further ado DanWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20and Tom what decks are we playing withtodayokay so we're playing with a mountaindeck and the storm order deck first ofall Trishawelcome to the mythical world of tantosyes we're not in your house anymorewe've crossed we've crossed they orderedI knowpixee tom is a mount I have a mountainWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40weather controlling pick be perceived byMolly she's she's super tough and feistyokay so speaking of each deck has itsown hero that you play as tell me aboutyour hero Dan so with the storm deck wehave Malia and each hero has its ownspecial ability that is unique to thatWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00hero Malia can increase damage fromcombos by one and she has 30 life verycool so you can take your little lifemarker and put it on the 30 let's startthe game yes okay and I have dolo themighty I'm a mountain how is this notgonna be the shortesta mountain it's a David and GoliathWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20scenario whoo what yeah I know here wego Dola the mighty is part of themountain order so he's got 31 health I'mgonna put that right there and Donna themighties got like an activated abilityso this is something that I could use asWatch at: 02:20 / 02:40an action in the game so I would take 2damage and then I get to draw two cardsthat's pretty cool and you'll noticehere that there are elements that arepart of the orders and that basicallydictates what kind of cards I can playyou'll also notice that there's a littlegold ring around one of them that meansit's a superior element so we'll getinto that later but that means I canplay more than one of the crystalelements fun side mission for viewersWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00how many times will I forget to add onedamage I'm impressedjust from a strength standpoint that youonly have one more little Mix's lifethat being said at time I love you but IWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20also really want to play this game socan I jump on Jackie attack and turn meout so as we touched upon there aredifferent orders in the game so there'salso nature there's tech there's astraland there's also dread they all playslightly differently as well and whenyou start getting booster packs andstuff you get different heroes so thisdoesn't always have to be the hero youstart with are you specific death yeahWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40but the hero will always dictate whatcards you can play from the get-go okayawesome and yeah because it's a tradingcard game these are the intro decks thatthat you can buy pre-built but you alsoof course can build your own decks andcustomize that with your own individualheroes which is great okay so what isthe basic turn order of this gamebasically the objective is simple youWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00try to defeat your opponent but the waythe turns go you'll see here on our nicelittle mats here we've got this nicelittle key which will tell you how theturns go it will start off with thebuffets we'll get into that later we'vegot no buffs in play at the start so wedon't do that and then we move on to theaction phase so in your decks you havethirty five cards 36 including you hereWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20you have five combo cards and 30 actioncards so your action cards are yourbasic actions you're gonna be takingthroughout the gameattack defend and buff and then thecombos combos we'll get into later nowfor the action phase of the turn you cando two actions and then there's the drawphase where you can spend unspentactions to door cuts okay I think weWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40should just get into itokay perfect I filled would you like tocut my time let's not do that ceremonyof course now you are yep we are playingwith card protector sleeves to protectour guys but the arts die on the back ofthe cards is really cool and so I wantto make sure that we show those to it infact I'll just do it right now while I'mWatch at: 04:40 / 05:00thinking of it without looking at whatmy top card is there it is check out howcool that is very very cool okay choiceall right so I'm gonna slide this backin now how many cards do we draw at thetop two game I think you should go firstokay bring you in the deep end fairenough you draw four cards right myWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20friend Daniel here will draw five okayis there any type of Mulligan if I hatemy hands all rightand an interesting thing about this gameis I guess you don't really have as muchneed to Mulligan because there is nospecific resource management if you willwhere I need to get so many mana orWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40lands or anything like that in order toplay cards because that's all determinedby your hero and those elements wetalked about earlier all right so I gofirst so obviously there's no buffs inplace don't have to do with those yet Iget two actions correct you ready tolose oh this is big I can I can feel thesweat I know I I have been playing cardWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00games strategy card games for a verylong time bring it so you know what youcould do right now you can use throne ofthe Mighty's ability to get more cardsin the air and that's that's part ofdiadem I t's you know 1902 the mightypart of his awesome ability even thoughWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20it's gonna take damage early on in thegame you can get more cards in yourhands and then you've still got one okayyeah I'm definitely gonna use thatability someday right usual my actionsdid use that ability and I take twodamage but I draw two cards so let metake two damage which puts me down to 29and I'm gonna take two cards nownormally the draw would have to be yourWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40last option correct but because it's myactive ability that's not the case hereso I do still have one action left I cando interesting that could be cool so I'mdeciding between two cards right now I'mgonna play my lava balancer mmm I'm justWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00picturing like a bouncer at a bar butentirely made of lava that's terrifyingyeah I use really a ball so it's likethat kind of bounder but I just had likeoh boy a lava I throw at your face whichis so terrifyingTrisha see is a bouncer at a club stopWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20stalling this is gonna be and therecipient moves to action cards of acategory of my choosing attack defendbefore item from their hand to theirWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40deck and I'm going to choose a tax tomove your hand back into your deck wellunfortunately and I'm gonna prove thisto you said Bob Tech cards okay dan isshowing me something beautiful so let'sWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00turn that to camera so everybody at homecan see that whoa don't want you to seethat though so I obviously guessed thewrong type of card at bad luck peoplethere I was I was this close to goingleft but then it didn't happen Dan tookhis T damage okay you did your actionand you played an attack so that is theend of my turn my and I don't drawWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20during the draw phase because I use bothmemorize all right all right so we'regonna come at you hard with a love firstoff this will reduce combo costs bythree but in three turns so at thebeginning of each of my turns I'm goingto have to rotate this so this turn Ihave an X next turn I have an X and thenWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40the turn after that all my combo cardsare reduced by a cost of three I usuallyhave to haveso many elements in order to play acombo which will match at the top of thecard but that card will take away thecost fight that's amazing and yeah canwe just talk about the rotating gonnaWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00care yeah absolutely sir Stan said likethis is gonna rotate at the beginning ofeach turn so basically what you do onceyou put it into play as Dan has done itwill be the top left-hand corner thatapplies in that particular moment andthen you'll apply that to the text nowbecause this has X's up in the cornersit's not gonna do anything that's justlike time out and I'm waiting I'mcharging it's charging them the swoopingWatch at: 09:00 / 09:20Cove is swooping wait what is it it's asweeping kovat a swooping cork give usyour best sweeping cool I was trying toswoop while like and I didn't want to gofull on sure you don't want to goforever go cool cool yeah yeah yeah soWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40basically once that gets in the thirdround so at the beginning of dance thirdround it will then rotate rounds arehere so that means as Dan said it'sgonna reduce the cost of his combos thathe has one in his hand right now bythree so I need to make Dan I get all ofthe combos out of his hand before thatexactly you'll notice there'll beWatch at: 09:40 / 10:00different kind of buffs that will comeinto play as well so some buffs have novalues in the corner whatsoever thatgenerally means that once it's on thetable it stays there until either thetext is resolved or it gets removed by aplayer oh I'm gonna think about allgreat so you're sweeping Cove it is inmy first action okay is there a limit tohow many buffs can be in play at a timeWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20you can have as many as you can put upI've seen twelve buffs in play oh my godit's pretty epic okay so that was yourfirst action first action done and thenI'm going to draw a card for my secondaction move over to you/ - me / - dole oh the mighty um allright um how many cards do you have inWatch at: 10:20 / 10:40your hand down single that's five I'mgonna use my abilities your abilitieslet me use my ability and I take twodamage when I do that but I draw twocards all those dollars tough so with myremaining action for this turn I amgoing to play the crystal bat and thatbat is not fragile despite the nameWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00beingstill looks very terrifying deals youthree damage and heals me for three soI'm going to go back up to 30 and youare now down to 25 that text is resolvedso he goes into my discard pile and thatis the end of my turn all right wellfirst off oh that corvid just moved byWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20this if I did absolutely nothing that'swhy it's moved so that doesn't count asan action that's right me rotating mybook Dan unfortunately doesn't come withthe Stars I do like the colors on thatcar scooping corded that's very cool Ilove the artwork on these cards as wellWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40they're moving awesome okay what you gotdone you know put in another booth thisis the hurricane spirit the attackability it will move two cards from therecipients hand today and the deck inabout three turns yeah I'll point outsomething else about so this is aslightly different buff as well you'llnotice here on the sweeping core bedWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00it's just got circular values in thecorner for the hurricane spirit we'vegot two circular Banyuls and that valuesvalues and then when we get to the finalcorner you'll know there's a clunky onethere that basically means that once itgets to the clunky it doesn't rotate howto play it's stays in play until you usethe ability that's in there now soWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20Steven app you can save it up obviouslyyou're gonna be mindful about leaving itin too long because you might be able toremove it later but that's basicallywhat the clunky means I mean there willbe other buffs where there's clong keyson every corner where it will onlyrotate when a certain thing happens coolyes for my next action I will draw acard and then it goes over OhWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40ribbiting Pass okay you know what I amgoing to use my ability again I knowthis is becoming like old hat for meright now so that's nice that's okaywith dollar you get that an ability inearly whilst you still got plenty ofhealth and then you got your chock-fullof card when I feel myself for three soI feel like I can do that again allWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00right well the first thing I'm going todo well I guess the only things alreadyis one of my actionsonly have one lap it's pretty big thingI am going to use my crystal leach whichit does say burn on it which means itdoesn't go into my discard pile it'sactually removed from the game afterthis but what this crystal each does isDan needs to remove - oh you have to bowWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20to whole buffs you remove your lightyour gameplay has been meaningless I'mgonna I'm just gonna set this off to theside so I remember that it's not part ofthisthat's basically what burn means itmeans that once it ends up sort of onthe discard side it means that if youWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40have any cards that allow you toretrieve custom you discard that juststayed up doesn't count you okay perfectand then I hand it over to you Dan okaywhat was so we're gonna put in the stormshaman ah oh man shaman shaman is thestorm and increases damage the shamanWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00what do you mean don't worry about itincreases damage done to other heroes byon the next turn it will be four but onthis turn is nothing nuts so here's aquestion the turn that a buff comes intoWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20play is it automatically active on thatfirst on that top left hand corner ifthat said if that had like a value ofsome value then I would definitely wantto try to do something straight not likeit needs to wait a full turn to serve meactive got it up there some like healingones to that as soon as I play it ohI'll get for healing or yeah yeah okayWatch at: 14:20 / 14:40is that in there would have to waitingfor me okay that was okay um let me justreexamine everything I have here so thefirst thing I'm going to do is play myplaying bat this is a bat made entirelyWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00of flame and it deals five damage to DanNoto be a swooping corvid can you be aflame that I mean I'm not gonna lightmyself on fire for this video adedication as many cases it wouldprobably yet what am I going to do that cuts at Trish's house apparentWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20picture if I was entirely on fire andthen yeah I would have actually gottenup and run around the table but Ihaven't my gun so I can't um but yeahvery frightening I hope that you werefrightened I'm quivering so that fivedamage which brings you down to what Danhoney Oh 22 my 28 but that's okayWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40anything can change in this game at anytime and I'm also going to play for mysecond action an attack called scryingcrystal and the recipient moves allcombo cards from their hand back intotheir double deal damage equal to thenumber of combo cards that were movedwhat whoa I'm sorry I wasn't payingattentionokay one more time you're gonna have toWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00go through your hand and remove all ofyour combo cards which I know in thebeginning we were teasing combo cardsthat they're big and bad and computergames that come in uh right now dan hasto remove all in his and put them backinto his deck and also take that manydamage so how many of that rata G and TWatch at: 16:00 / 16:19down there is a whole game okay ThankYou scrying crystal like I said thosecan be game-changing so that was a verygood card and then that was both of myactions so it goes back to you nowbecause you took those out and put themin your deck you just reshuffled yes yesrotate your storm shoving your shaman ofWatch at: 16:19 / 16:40the store and increase damage done toother heroes by four so it doesn't evennecessarily need to be from an attackbut it's not a clunker so it only worksfor this correct yeah so we'll do moredamage plus 4 that's 8 weight damageWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00with the dust fiend this card and thiswould have been really really helpfulthis card can count as any element whenused for a combo so oh no if forinstance I don't know I had a reallyawesome combo in my hand thebefore before I had to go and turn allmy combos in and I was missing anWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20element I could have used this to payfor it so what Dan means by paying for acombo I know you haven't dealt withcombos yet normally how our hero haselements and we would use those to coverthe cost of a normal card that has likeone up here if you're like oh man theymatch cool they can do thatcombos have more than one up here andinstead of using the elements on yourWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40hero to pay for that combo you actuallyneed to take cards from your handenough of these put together that theysatisfy the cost from your hand backinto your deck down was saying you knowif he were to have combos and was maybesaving up some cards to put back intohis deck to pay for said combos hey soWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00there's still time to get some combosinto play that would have been a reallygreat one because I can count as anyelements so you hit your dust fiendswith your storm shaman for 8 damagebrings me down to 20 dustman dust screamthat sounds like a vacuum Thank Youbrand it's a vacuum nightmare you justfiend and then I'm going to draw a cardWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20and now it's your turn okay now doesthat mean a storm shaman is out of playor we don't we'll rotate out at thebeginning of my next turn even thoughthe effects have been resolved sometimeshaving buffs that stay in play actuallyhave either a benefit or a detriment toyou okay I go I'm going to use my doleWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40oh the mighty ability to take two damageand draw two cards which makes the game18 to 18 it is now high score ooh that'sinterestingooh that is also interesting we got somecommon prize you've got some boring cogsTom come on dude I thought I was helpingWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00now if you do play a combo it takes upyour entire turn so you wouldn't be ableto do that it takes you both youractions and I've already used one soyou're right if you just had happenedlet's say hypothetically drew two combosjust that neither of them will help addanother thing to note as well you canuse other combos to pay for a combo soWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20if you've got a combo that matches thesymbol of the symbols you can contributethose to theand you can overspend as well don't tellher one I want to see you crushed intothe dust you don't have to playfavorites it's okay it is fair that Iknow all the rules yeah absolutelyWatch at: 19:20 / 19:40I'm hoping subjective it hurts my heartto not use this card for its fullpotential but that's okayI'm going to play the omron thief whichis an attack that is not affiliatedwhich means that has no element ofdevelop energy built into any definitemany-colored the UM bronze thief who isjust stealing stuff that's what he doesWatch at: 19:40 / 20:00he deals four damage to you Dannow if the recipient has more health andme after the damage I would heal forthree that is not the case so he justgoes into my discard and that is the endof my termsso you're turned down okay so the stormshaman shamans are okay no I like thatshamanism this is the vitalizing fraudWatch at: 20:00 / 20:20oh I don't know if this snake is hisstaff he's squeezing it miss mangasscreaming anyway gives me six healing soWatch at: 20:20 / 20:40one two three four five sixoh man 22:18 2218 vitalizing frog skinfrog yes and then I'm going to drier Ilike that you just became a pirate aswell just apparently I should haveintroduced this video with my pirateWatch at: 20:40 / 21:00friends I mean about his ego um alrightdo I want to do this or this and I thinkI'm going to go with the combo defendstream of tongue now D paper stream oftanto so if you look at the top of thiscard it's got three different elementsWatch at: 21:00 / 21:20on it which means I need to take cardswith those elements represented on themfrom my hand and place them back into mydeck to essentially pay for this comboso I am going to use okay I'm going touse another combo in my hand I wish Ididn't have to but I'm going to do thatit's gonna work so the crystal skincombo in my handWatch at: 21:20 / 21:40has two crystals and what does that onehe that's right he writes the earthquakeso you got you got earthquake you got aChris and then I'm going to also use arelic that has fire Rock down in FraggleRock so let me go ahead and shuffle thisWatch at: 21:40 / 22:00back in while you would please takeseven damage and I feel for seven it'samazed he's kind of flashing here so Igo up to 25 and you are down to 14 sincethe text was resolved that goes into onebig one and done and then you get toWatch at: 22:00 / 22:20draw a card when you play resolves yourtime okay perfectso that's it I'm in draw card and thatis the end of my turn dance okay so thisrotates out oh you're real excited wellI'm excited because guess what it is ohyes what it is it's the dance andWatch at: 22:20 / 22:40flutter work so three damage increasedby three if you have more than twentyhealth but you do have that guy whichblocks it by two but some sorts ofdamage - - so for damage but then I getrid of that so yeah four takes me downto 18 okay the mountain fort goes intoWatch at: 22:40 / 23:00mountains or tiles away and then mysecond action three damage with thecackling Wisla hahahaha three damage butEirenemay remove a buff to increase it bythree damage so that's six damage oh manokay okay so six more damage to me thatbrings me down to 12it is now 16 to 12 and my how the tidesWatch at: 23:00 / 23:20have turned I was bragging before and isthat the end of your turns and that isthe it's getting there okay see mangleone turns boom wonderment one damage toDan thank you for that okay so that wasmy buff phase I cannot to pay for that yet um okay I'mWatch at: 23:20 / 23:40gonna use my ability take to damagewhich takes me down to 10 which isballsy at this point gonna have lethalbut the mighty has big balls I have hugebomb Boulder balls let it be known oh ohWatch at: 23:40 / 24:00I'm gonna play the buff exteriordefender which is cool looks like alittle boy cancels the next attackagainst me so provided whatever kind ofdamage Dan is doing as an attack whichI'm guessing it's not based on thismotion that he's doing that might beable to save me for the game okay yourturnfantastic so I'm going to do a comboWatch at: 24:00 / 24:20buff paying for it with my lightning andwind lightning storm oh so right off thebat for damage to you plus plus one sofive damage and these get shuffled backinto my deck okaydraw one and then it goes over to youokay so while you're doing that thatWatch at: 24:20 / 24:40rotate deals you to damage so excitedyou've got 13 can I do 13 this turn ohmanyou know what I cannot do 13 but what Ican do is 10 Ohso that is inferno it's a combo attackWatch at: 24:40 / 25:00we got to pay for it with two flames soI'm gonna use the plane bat and the everrock relic they're going to go back into my deck and that gives you 10 damage[Music]once I shuffle I'm going to draw ohthat's what you do after combo good youknow anyway from that las Dunsey Gopal'sWatch at: 25:00 / 25:20that was a okay first of all that was amarathon that was a gameover in my I don't know what and the 15Watch at: 25:20 / 25:40minutes of Matt that was intenseyeah that was riveting look at this andyou had like 28 when I was down to whatit was 27 and 7 and 1 my how the mightyhave fallenbaby Dan what do you think that's lightWatch at: 25:40 / 26:00seekers no I I do think this is a reallyfun game I think that it is a little biteasier to learn than some of the otherstrategy card games out there so onceyou get the hang of it you can startplaying right away and then after youstart dealing with the differentgameplay styles of the different decksyou understand more the complexity andthe different strategies you can goWatch at: 26:00 / 26:20about with it which is really cool andstart to build your own decks to whereyou can mix and cross orders and so youcan develop cross order decks where wecould mix our dicks together 's and thenitem cards come into play when you'reable to use cards that are out of yourcharacter's element amount install thenyou have to be careful which hero youchoose because that could really and youWatch at: 26:20 / 26:40know wow this is a super exciting timeto be looking at the card game because Ido know that play

  1. Nice to see card and board game content. It's usually hard to watch "let's play type videos" thru to completion but this was fun/interesting. I have over $800 into Star Wars Destiny and my wife and son don't even want to play it. I'll put it up on ebay so I can get money to buy more games they don't want to play, lol. Getting addicted to kickstarter board games too, she really loves that. NOT. (I mostly want them because I love painting the miniatures) too bad I spend at least a day on painting one miniature as they now usually come with 75 – 130 each game. Oh well, great to have so many geek options and hobbies. Finishing a 144th scale millennium Falcon now as I just had shoulder reconstruction surgery (from a BAD bicycle accident in October) and am out 2 months of my last year of a 30 year Fire Dept career because of it. Glad I didn't abuse my sick time and saved it for emergencies (as in 2 broken ankles, a broken tibia, a broken foot, and a torn off bicep (all from off duty ice hockey injuries). I love my hockey more than games. Keep up the great work, one of my favorite subs.

  2. Just wait until you start using items and splashing other colors into your decks. Very entertaining video and this game is one to get. Easy to learn, difficult to master

  3. Watching the gameplay was very helpful in understanding the game. I really like Magic but wanted something less dependent on the "meta" and chasing a playset of one card or another just to be "competitive", this looks like it could be that game.

  4. This feels weirdly like that old wii game, i think it was called skylanders? I dunno, the art style, the way elements are presented, feels a lot like that old game. Even the logo looks like an evolution of skylanders.
