Play a game
The goal of a party is simple: remove all life points of your opponent.
At the start of a party, you’ll have the choice between 3 heroic powers (10), they can be used once per round.
At the first round, your hand contains 3 or 4 cards depending if you engage the battle or not.
Furthermore, the player engaging the combat obtains 1 mana gem, the other players gets 3 gems.
Those allow to win 1 mana for the current round only (5).
The two players use their cards each their turn with the available mana (1). The mana ranges from 0 to 9 and increases each round (warning, when reaching 5, you’ll need two rounds to have 6, same for 7, then three and four rounds to get to 8 and 9).
The cost in mana of each card is indicated on the top left corner (3).
By default, a card is picked per round. But there is an alternative to get cards, thanks to the Favor (2), gained by attacking the ennemy God or by eliminating the enemy servants (with spells or if your servant survives his attack).
You’ll have the possibility to choose between 3 cards (6), their cost varies from 12 to 17 Favors. Choose wisely, this could be decisive!
All your valiantly lost creatures go in the “void” (9), some Gods can make them come back from the deads!
Don’t forget to finish your round (8) before your time (7) is over!
That is how the game unfolds until one of the two Gods (4) loses its whole life points…
Your Gods Unchained collection
All your cards are here. To easily find some cards, filters allow you to classify them depending of your preferences:
- Cost in mana (0 to 9+).
- Life points (0 to 9+).
- Attack points (0 to 9+).
- Tribe (Aether, Amazon, Anubian…).
- Type (weapons, creatures, spells).
- God (Light, War…).
- Scarcity (common, rare, epic, legendary or mythic).
- Sets (Genesis, Core, Order…).
- Quality (classic, meteorite, gold…).
Create a deck
Workshop is the tab containing your decks.
A base deck is created for each God so you get the hang of it.
Like in each card game, there are different archetypes of decks: are you more aggressive, controled, hybrid (midrange), combo or even suicide?
It is up to you to express your creativity in fitting the best combos!
For the less inspired, it is possible to directly import decks from other players, some are composed with base cards and for others, you’ll have to buy the cards on the marketplace (on Immutable or on the GU Decks page presented later on).
Forge your cards
The Forge allows to merge cards from a classic to a superior quality. Remember that only superior cards have a value and can be exchanged on the Immutable marketplace or secondary exchanges!
In terms of quality (and price), the rating in ascending order is as follow: Classic, Meteorite, Shadow, Gold and Diamond.
2 classic cards merge into a meteorite. To obtain a shadow card, 5 meteorites are necessary, 5 shadows build a gold and finaly, 5 golds to get a diamond… Good luck!
The cost of forging of each cards varies depending of its scarcity:
- Common: 20 Flux and 0.1 GODS.
- Rare: 40 Flux and 0.3 GODS.
- Epic: 120 Flux and 0.9 GODS.
- Legendary: 200 Flux and 1.5 GODS.
5 cards per pack, with nice surprises sometimes… a legendary can possibly be hidden in a common pack for the luckiest of you!
In addition to the packs offered when reaching a new level, the tab “Buy Packs” redirects you to the Gods Unchained page to buy packs of your choice (with a promotion, percentage dropping each day).
You’ll have the possibility to pay with your Metamask account or any other compatibel ERC-20 wallet, or directly via credit card.
All the details on the probabilities to obtain cards of quality and superior scarcity of the last set are here:

The Gods Unchained events
Gods Unchained knows how to rewards there active and loyal users.
As its name already says, this event is weekly and is from friday 1pm to monday 1pm. Entrants get rewards with numerous packs of cards.
The concept is easy, win as much as possible of the first 25 games you do! The number of rewards is proportional to the amount of victories.
Another parameter comes into play: your rank at the start of the weekend (fridays 1pm)
There are 12 ranks, from Rusted Bronze to Mythical.
Lets look at some examples:
- If you are Rusted Bronze, your best reward will be the one proposed for 13 victories out of 25.
- If you are Mythical, all the rewards are unlocked.
This system allows to valorise going higher up in ranks. Otherwise, it would be easy to start the weekend by fighting opponents of a lower level and win rewards easily.
Find the amount of packs and limits depending on the ranks:
