      1. Players are known as Illumineers who "wield magical ink to summon new versions of Disney characters and items, which are called glimmers," with which to allow players to "race across Lorcana and collect missing pieces of lore". With a team of glimmers, the Illumineers with compete with each other to gather lore, and the first Illumineer to obtain twenty lore wins

    7. Card Types

      1. Amber

        1. Amber glimmers are purposeful. Patient and dedicated, they’re able to pursue causes and ambitions with single-minded persistence. They often work within communities, either from above as a leader or from within as a healer, bodyguard, or just a loyal follower.

      2. Amethyst

        1. Amethyst glimmers are wondrous, for this is the otherworldly ink of sorcerers, sages, animated objects, and other glimmers who use their special powers to achieve their aims. They are incredibly powerful when they have access to their amazing abilities but may land in trouble if they're stripped of those or tap into power they can’t control.

      3. Emerald

        1. Emerald glimmers are flexible. Gifted with the ability to adapt to changing circumstances, they are never caught off guard. Quick-thinking but not necessarily book-smart, they navigate their environment—whether physical or social, natural or artificial—with ease.

      4. Ruby

        1. Ruby glimmers are daring. They use their speed and bravery to defy the odds. They are often warriors, explorers, and daredevils.

      5. Sapphire

        1. Sapphire glimmers are intellectual. Intelligent and creative, they excel at strategy, invention, and the arts. They can almost always know something, plan something, or invent something that will win the day.

      6. Steel

        1. Steel glimmers are strong. Large and imposing, armored, or just plain powerful, Steel glimmers can apply huge amounts of brute force to get the job done.

    8. Starter Decks

      1. Amber and Amethyst 

      2. Emerald and Ruby

      3. Sapphire and Steel
