Cards are the core gameplay mechanic in The Last Hex.
- The cards in your deck are affected by your stats. Each card has its own formula which uses your stats to determine how powerful the effect is. To raise your stats you must equip yourself with items and you will also have chances to gain stats via events. Some cards are stronger at the start of a run but fall off in effect later on, while others grow exponentially through your run.
- There are 11 classes with individual decks, starting equipment and powers
- There are ~350 playable cards
