In the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, you go on valiant adventures in a rich fantasy world. Each player has a deck of cards representing a character, which you play through many individual game sessions called scenarios. Several linked scenarios are called an adventure, and several linked adventures are called an Adventure Path. As you advance through the Adventure Path, you’ll improve your deck, customize your character, and face more and more powerful challenges.
To win many scenarios, your party of adventurers must locate, defeat, and corner a threatening villain. Some scenarios don’t have a villain; you win these by closing all of that scenario’s locations before a timer called the hourglass runs out. Other scenarios have multiple villains, or even more unusual victory conditions; in those cases, the scenario itself will tell you how to win it.
