During this phase, players build a hand of cards in a process called drafting. These cards will provide them with upgrades for troops and clan, monsters to join the fight, quests for glory, and the raw power to win battles.
On the Second and Third Age, if a player has a leftover card in their hand from a previous Age, they must first place this card face down on their clan sheet, on top of their clan symbol.
Take the deck of cards from the Age Track of the current Age and deal 8 cards to each player. The few remaining cards won’t be used in this game session.
