Let’s Play: Dark Souls The Card Game
Playing as a tank Knight, a healing Herald, and range damaging Sorcerer we’ll be making our way through progressively more difficult enemy encounters, gathering souls and equipment, which can then be used to improve our deck of cards, before facing the final boss fights!
Your deck contains equipment, items, and spells which are used to heal allies, damage enemies, or block incoming damage. However, the abilities of these cards have a stamina cost to play. Generally, the more stamina cards from your hand you use to play an ability the more damage you may do or incoming damage you may block,
However, a players deck represents their health, making each encounter a delicate balancing act. If there ever comes a point when a player has to draw a card and cannot, they are out, and all players must return to the bonfire to rest and recover.
There are five bonfire cards in total so making sure you use them sparingly and deciding when to return will be very important.
We had a lot of fun with this one but let us know what you think.
Will you take on the challenge?

Does the armor on the enemies block the certain amount of damage on every attack, or the armor is just like hp in plus? For example 1 armor will always reduce incoming damage by 1, or is it just like 1 additional health?
This was a great watch!!! Good job guys!!! The game is great
Is Darkeater Midir card in this set?
I must have misread the rules. >_< I was flipping cards form the top of my deck when I took damage, not selecting a card to discard form my hand.
The music for Armour of the Sun 1:40:55!! 😀 praise til you're hollow folks
Had to find a video of players fighting Pontiff lol THANK U! Wasn't sure if clone's damage tokens TRANSFER OVER to boss. They don't
Recently got this and all expansions a lot of fun would just like to say u guys earned a sub I’ve watched a few play throughs but that was by far the best helpful n most enjoyable to watch well done
Looks good, will buy
This game looks….deadly!
I gotta get this!
Ask yourself after a few seconds, which awesome hobby companies sponsored this video? Don't cheat… I got 0/5
I’ve never watched a whole play through before today. Wow! This looks much better than the board game, I’m definitely picking this up.
It looks like they finally got the spirit of Dark Souls right, I'll gladly play this once it finally gets home
Can you tell us how many enemies have special abilities? I am worried about the foes not being versatile enough for the added challenge. Are there alternative modes?
Nicely done gents. Bravo on your victory. Praise the sun!
I want to know how many bosses this game has. I would deeply appreciated if you answered my question
Thanks for the playthrough guys. I received my copy yesterday and this helped a lot. Can't wait to see some expansions to this.
This is a awesome game and a cool Letsplay
For german people, a german Lets play:
When exploring the rulebook says if you continue after an encounter the next encounter needs to be next to the starting position or next to an encounter already cleared. After your first encounter at the bottom you did the one at the top – not next to either the start or a cleared encounter. Is this right?
8 more days!!! Hurry up! I want this game!!!!
Any advice about evolving the decks for being more efficient per character?
Just got this game. I really regret buying it. OVER 400 CARDS?! WHAT A MESS!
Thanks guys for an awesome game. I haven't been so successful, but I'll die trying, again and again and again ……
If you swap positions with another hero, it uses up both your move actions for that turn. Also it's if your starting hand contains a weapon that determines the mulligan, not equipment.
Am I missing something or when Vordt did the double swipe on the front row and there was nobody in that row surely he'd hit the second row instead like any other enemy ?
Just bought the game. Good job guys convincing me
I think this game is great, but it really needs expansions to shine. It would be great to get most bosses in the next expansion and maybe even more items or additional rules.
The only one that tells you what kind of reward you get is Vordt. How do you know what to get from the other bosses in the game?
I have a small doubt. At minute 1:34:10 the Overhead Smash card is shown, indicating that the character pushes backward the character in the front centre row. However, in minute 1:34:46 it is assumed that not only the attack effect of the character (which is clear from the rules) but also the push effect are transferred to the hero located in the first row (in this case the Knight). Is this correct? In a couple of games where we have played Vord, we have assumed that whereas the attack effect is passed to any character in the corresponding row when there is no hero in the incumbet column, other effects are not inherited. Can someone please comment on this? Thanks!
Is PVP a thing in this? I didn’t watch the video all the way through
Don't you get to mulligan if you don't at least draw a weapon? Not just an item…
The guy on the right should have done a mulligan, since he did not draw a Weapon Card. The Gold Pine Resin is not a Weapon.
When your Weapons do Area Attack, which of the Rows and Columns shown on the graphic are Targeted?
So when it shows Area Attack on the lower Row, the Attacks Target the bottom Enemy Row?
It seems the last Area Attack missed, because it Targeted the Enemy's front Row, but the Main Boss was at the middle Column of the bottom Row, so technically, if Area Targeting works the way you have dictated in this walkthrough, the Attack would have missed the Boss, so you actually failed to kill him, and the game has not ended.
Awesome play through guys….
OK, I'm sold! Getting the game asap! Thanks guys.
'Falchion' is pronounced 'Fal-shun' 🙂
1:21:30 How did you hit him from the back right corner…?
Edit: Ok, so you realized it but…can you still hit him when you are in the back row?
1:40:56 I had to dance..
i think the instructions say you can reshuffle the primary draw if you dont get an ATTACKING card (36:36)
i have a question i havent noticed this piece of instruction anywhere… for melee attacks, do you need to stand in the first row of your board to be able to attack or is it just important you are in the same column as the monster and yourself and the front row back row is not important as long as no monster or other player stands in between? the instructions only mention column, but it doesnt specificaly say about the row… just that players and monster cant be in between… thanks for help
So when you take damage you have to discard that number from your hand/deck? And they go to discard pile which cannot be used anymore?
Awsome Gameplay i loved it
The edition to show the cards and the angle of the camera to show cards was pretty useful
I'd love to see an expansion Gameplay
