Actively using character-driven stories to define the world of Malifaux, seek your fortune in this fast-paced and brutal 32mm tabletop miniature skirmish game. Assemble your crew and stake your claim!
Malifaux is a character-driven 32mm tabletop miniatures game. Players collect, build, and paint models representing the denizens of Malifaux, pitting these models against one another in groups called Crews for control of the precious resource known as Soulstones.
In Malifaux Fate's hand is represented by a pack of cards we call the Fate Deck. Each of the Fate Deck's suits represents one of the threads of aetheric power magicians use to power their abilities. When a model attempts to perform an action you will often flip a card for it to determine whether that action is successful.
Every turn each player draws a hand of cards. You may cheat fate with your cards, replacing the flipped card with one from your hand. In this way you can influence a model's actions you deem to be important.
Each player will need a Fate Deck.
