Played on changing and combinable grids: Play with 2-5 players and adjust the board size to your liking with 4 combinable boards.

Emphasized tactical positioning and movement: Plan, position & move your cards like never before!

Neverrift TCG combines the best of both worlds: Unique card combos and collectability with spatial positioning and tactics!

Construct your own unique deck using the additional cards provided in the board game box and expand your collections and your options with boosters.

Neverrift aims to be highly accessible without compromising on depth or complexity. The need for tactical positioning enhances both deck building and gameplay, so we've focused on four main principles to make Neverrift approachable for everyone:

- Simple Rules: Learn to play Neverrift in under 2 minutes!
- Concise Card Texts: Most cards feature only 2-3 lines of text.
- Affordable Play: Want to play Neverrift without committing to a trading card game? Get the board game, and you'll have everything you need!
- Available Online & Offline: Neverrift will be available in both physical and digital formats in single player and multiplayer modes. Read more below.

We've invested hundreds of hours to ensure the game is balanced, engaging, and allows for the discovery of new strategies. Co-created by gaming experts and hundreds of play testers, it’s a unique collectible card game that blends board and trading card game elements.

Each card is a small piece of art

Yet in many card games the actual artwork only makes up a small fraction of the card. We cherish our amazing talent's works by reducing text and stream lining design to showcase THE feature most cards are remembered by: Artworks.
No AI art was used to create our artworks and we are proud to have featured artists from each continent including over 20 countries!

Markus Schwarze, the creator of Neverrift, has worked in the TCG industry for nearly 20 years. As a passionate TCG and board game player, he founded his first business at the age of 14, growing it into one of the largest German online shops for trading card games, currently employing around 40 people.

Markus always aspired to create his own game. Twenty years ago, he was sketching ideas on paper as a teenager; today, his passion and entrepreneurial drive are fully invested in Neverrift TCG – his dream became reality!

Gate to the Games combines hundreds of years of TCG and board game experience, channeling this expertise into the intense game design and play testing sessions that created Neverrift. We collaborated with industry experts, consultants, game veterans, pro players, retailers, and wholesalers to develop an outstanding product. Moreover, hundreds of play testers from around the world helped shape Neverrift into the game it is today: a game for players, made by players.

Neverrift has been showcased at various conventions such as SPIEL Essen and Dreamhack and tested in brick-and-mortar stores. The latest Beta play test for the Neverrift app brought together over 150 play testers from across the globe.

The collective wisdom and feedback have shaped Neverrift into a truly unique TCG and board game experience, dedicated to exceptional game play.

Jump into the Neverrift online! (Available Q4)

Centuries ago humankind lived in harmony with its surroundings until an unexpected event shattered that peace. A gigantic rift opened, ripping the world apart, allowing creatures of mystical yet dangerous nature to enter the once peaceful world.

Over time the inhabitants adjusted to the rift’s existence and various factions developed, each treating the rift in a different way. There are those who worship the rift. Those who protect the rift. But most people despise the rift and think of it as an event that was never meant to happen. A rift that was never supposed to be… calling it the Neverrift.

Powerful beings called Tamers emerged, representing their faction’s beliefs and facing the threats caused by the Neverrift. Taming creatures, wielding magic and planning for their next move they wait for an opportunity to strike.


Our booster packs will be made from fully recyclable paper instead of plastic, utilizing "metallized paper" that features shiny effects for a visually stunning appearance. This innovative material offers a unique texture and look, yet can still be disposed of in paper recycling bins. By using paper boosters, we significantly reduce environmental impact compared to traditional plastic packaging, contributing to a more sustainable future.

In addition, our production will be based locally in central Europe (Germany) to minimize delivery distances and reduce carbon emissions, making our processes more eco-friendly. Partnering locally also enhances quality control, as it allows us to communicate, supervise, and adjust production more effectively.

Our printing partner will be Ludo Fact & Friedmann Print (a subsidiary of Ludo Fact), known for producing popular franchises such as Catan and Keyforge.

Rarities:

Common
Rare ★
Epic ★★ (partial rainbow foil)
Legendary ★★★ (partial rainbow foil + colored hot foil ornaments)
Parallel Foil: rainbow foil over whole card (each card can be a parallel foil)

There might be a very rare last rarity, but this will be subject to Kickstarter performance and stretch goals! ;)

Booster Distribution:

Slot 1-6: Common
Slot 7: Parallel Foil (can be any card)
Slot 8: Rare/Epic/Legendary

Drop rates per booster non-foil / parallel-foil:

Common: 100% / 65%
Rare: 65% / 30%
Epic: 20% / 3%
Legendary: 15% / 2%

These numbers are on average! Rarity distribution will vary slightly between displays to prevent manipulation.

Neverrift aims to attract both players and collectors by offering exclusive collectible items while ensuring that every player can enjoy their favorite cards without breaking the bank. To achieve this, we have adopted a hybrid approach to our products. This includes randomized items, such as the limited booster box released only once per year, and non-randomized items, like our board game and themed expansions.

Our products are:


Themed Expansions: include 30 fixed, new cards (5 of each faction + 5 neutral cards). We aim to have 2-3 themed expansions released per year.

Board Game Expansions: will bring lots of new cards, 5 new tamers, new boards/grids, as well as new grid mechanics and card types. One board game expansion shall be released per year. Might even be bringing new factions or multi-color-factioned tamers (Psst!).

Collector Display: will contain all cards released in a year in alternate art or foil-upgraded versions, as well as some collector display only cards.

By choosing this hybrid approach we not only ensure a constant flow of new cards at a reasonable rate, we also don’t overdo it in terms of feasibility in development. Below follows what is planned for 2025.

Release Schedule 2025:

    March 2025: Themed Expansion “Dragons from the Rift”
    June 2025: Themed Expansion “Otter’s Den"
    September 2025: Themed Expansion “Roar of the Beasts”
    October 2025: Board Game Expansion
    November 2025: Collector Booster Box 2025

    This is our planned Release Schedule for 2025. All themes and names are subject to change depending on community feedback - we want to include the Kickstarter and Neverrift communities in deciding what will be next!


    June: Campaign Ends
    June: Pledge Manager Opens
    July-August: Manufacturing
    September: Freight Shipping Begins
    October: Fullfilment Begins
    November: Delivered to Backers
    December: Retail Release

    All above dates are estimates and we will continuously update all Backers with timeline changes.

* Shipping fees will be paid after the campaign, on the pledge manager.
A pledge manager is a third-party platform that we will use to make to it as simple as possible to send you the packages. You will be able to select the language of your pledge (English or German) and provide us your shipping address, simply and safely. Shipping fees and any other mandatory fees (like VAT for EU backers, depending on the regulations of your location) will be collected in the pledge manager too.
