In the Martian Civil War event, each player will represent either the Ironyx Rebel or Elder side of the conflict.

Retailers that participate in the event will receive a kit containing an even assortment of Elder or Rebel pods* (the 12 cards representing the faction). These pods will include never-seen-before cards, exclusive to each side. One event kit is required for every six players.

This event will be played using the Sealed format rules, with a special rule: Each player must use their assigned Rebel or Elder pod in their final deck.

Once their deck is crafted, each player will play three games, seeking victory for their side so that it may be the faction standing at the end of the Martian Civil War.

Each Martian Civil War event at a participating retailer will be held over one day and feature a modified round-robin style of match pairings. Retailers may run multiple single-day events if desired.

* These are not legal for sanctioned tournament play.

Each side’s victories in this event places them one step closer to a favorable outcome in the war. After the event, each retailer will upload the result of their local games to Ghost Galaxy. We will then tabulate the results and announce a victor!

Winning the Martian Civil War will have permanent and long-term effects for the future of House Mars:

Victory for the Elders will see them maintain the iconography and color scheme of the current house Mars, while future releases of new cards will play into the controlling style of the Elder mindset.

Victory for the Ironyx Rebels will leave scars upon the house of Mars as its iconography will permanently change to that of the Ironyx Rebels. The Mars color scheme will incorporate red and black accents and future cards of house Mars will lean towards what the Rebels does best: fighting.

In addition, whichever side wins, it is they that will receive the first-ever Martian Leader card.
