Trial of the Gods is the first set to be launched in Gods Unchained (GU) after the Genesis set was introduced in 2018.

All relevant for building trust and both are achieved by using blockchain technology. There will be a few code examples, and some blockchain tech-talk, but it shouldn’t require much prior knowledge to follow .

Update: A guide for the latest set, Trial of the Gods, can be found here. This guide is primarily for Genesis, though some generic concepts about Gods Unchained cards are explained here.

In this article I’ll be talking about which type of card packs are worth buying in Gods Unchained. The card packs have different properties and different prices, so which to choose depend on what type of cards you seek. The game is in beta as we speak and open for anyone to play (beta access included in link).
