Long ago, Hand of Glory was the greatest gameshow in existence, a trial of mighty champions beloved by gods and mortals alike. Yet as time passed and ratings fell, the viewers tuned out and all that is left now is the Crew, those abandoned to the sprawling set, and the Host, the  divinely-wrought entity that keeps them trapped there. 

In a desperate bid for freedom, you play as champions of the Crew who travel through the ruined set of Hand of Glory as one last entry to the competition. Your prize is your freedom and the freedom of your people; to fail is to suffer exile from the show. You must work together with your other Contestants by battling foes, crossing obstacle courses and completing quizzes, cook-offs and dating rounds in a bid for freedom. 

Hand of Glory is a cooperative deckbuilding RPG for two or more players. It plays with a simple dice engine and a hand of cards, with an emphasis on fast tactical fun and interesting challenges. Grow and develop your character, pull off cool combos and battle your way to freedom today!

This game includes full-colour and low-ink versions of card decks and rulebooks play, card sheets for you to print at home as well as card images to upload to virtual tabletops. I've also included a setup for the playingcards.io VTT to make online play quicker and easier to get started.
