In Artifact, Two players face off against each other on three [[Boards]]. Both players use a variety of [[Cards]] to build up their force and hinder their opponent. As time goes on, the players become more powerful, outfitting their [[Heroes]] with [[Items]], and using more and more powerful [[Spells]]. The goal of the game is to Destroy the Enemy Ancient, that becomes vulnerable after you destroy any of their towers. You can also win the game by Destroying Two towers.

The game starts by playing the first three Heroes of each player into random lanes and dealing a starting hand to each player from their Draw Deck.
