I got a key (through Humble Bundle or elsewhere). How do I redeem it?
Login to your existing account or register a new account. Once you are in the game, click the menu button at the top right of the screen (three horizontal lines) and select “Redeem Key”. Enter your key and you will receive your item!
I got a key to the Basic Edition. What happens if I have an existing account or already own it?
Keys to the Basic Edition can be redeemed by any account, new or existing, unless you already own the Basic Edition. If you do own it, you can give the key to someone else.
What exactly is in the Basic Edition?
The Basic Edition includes these extras: 11 treasure hunt adventures, one month of Card Hunter Club membership, nine adventurer figures, and 100 slices of pizza that can be used in-game to purchase gold, figures, chests, and more.
Is there competitive multi-player? Co-op play? How much single-player content is there?
Card Hunter is both a single-player (campaign) game and a multi-player game. You can play cooperatively with one or two other players in both the campaign and casual multiplayer. Multiplayer features ranked games, casual games and leagues.
What will I have to pay?
You can play Card Hunter for free. However, if you wish, you can buy some stuff with real money. You can subscribe to become a member of the Card Hunter Club. This boosts your loot drops. You can buy treasure chests that contain loot and you can purchase costumes for your characters. You can also buy some Treasure Hunt adventures which give you an epic quality item if you complete them.
Aren’t free to play games just designed to make you have to pay to win?
Some free to play games are designed that way, but our model is that we want to provide you a great free experience with the option of purchasing stuff if you like the game and want to enhance your experience. We are striving hard to make sure the game isn’t “pay to win”. With the exception of the Treasure Hunts and the costumes, you can access everything else in the game for free.
Where can I get more information on the actual game?
What role did Richard Garfield and Skaff Elias play in development?
Richard and Skaff worked as design consultants on the game. They’re helped us make sure this is a truly great collectible card game.
