How do I build my deck?

Year 1 is a community deck card game which allows you to play with as many cards in the deck as you want. You can separate decks into themes or combine them all together to make a super deck. Building your deck is fun and easy as there are several ways to go about obtaining new cards. Each set comes with a starter deck to which expansions will be released regularly. We also offer custom card creation in which anyone can build their own personal game card. These are encouraged to be used like business cards and can be spread far and wide over time making a unique rolodex of business associates that can be added to your deck. Also you will find that we often give away special promotional cards to event attendees and our fans on Facebook(link to Facebook), Twitter(link to twitter), and Website(link to register) members.

What happens when I unlock Year 1 card codes?

Year 1 promo cards frequently come with card unlock codes at the bottom. These unlock codes allow you to add the card to your virtual deck for online play and include it in your online collection. They also unlock bonus CE Income points, additional content online, and enter you into contests and sweepstakes giveaways when promotions are running. Unlike other card-based unlock codes, our card codes never expire and can be passed on to friends and neighbors. If you register a Year 1 card, you can pass it on to friends and see who else gets it after you!

What is the Year 1 Grey Market?

A grey market is a secretive, unregulated (though technically legal) trading economy. It’s not black... just a little... cough... secondary. The Year 1 Grey Market is our online card exchange program that allows players to keep unlocking cards and passing them along. Whenever someone unlocks a card you already registered, you get an email letting you know they unlocked a card. It’s a fun way to see where your cards end up after they left your hot little hands. If there is a particular card you are looking for, you can also use the Year 1 grey market to locate an owner of a card and make them an offer they can’t refuse.
