Hand of Fate 2 is a deck-building role-playing game that takes you through a number of quests. As you progress you’ll unlock more cards which will bring new encounters, weapons and equipment.

The combat portion of the game has been vastly improved from the first instalment. It also features companions, each with their own bonuses and attack styles, 22 new quests that are unlocked as you complete missions and hundreds of new encounters, equipment and artifacts to find.

Before each quest you’ll have a chance to design your deck based on what cards you’ve already unlocked. Choosing the right cards and equipment for a quest can make progress through it much easier. Some quests have both a gold and silver token. This means you can complete a quest partially but still move forwards with the adventure.

Hand of Fate 2 was released in February 2015 by Defiant Development. It continues the story from the first Hand of Fate game with improved combat mechanics and new encounters.

Due to the popularity of the two games Defiant Development have raised funds for a Hand of Fate boardgame on Kickstarter. The game will be called Hand of Fate: Ordeals and is a competitive or co-operative game for 1 to 4 players.
