About Pathfinder Adventure Card Game
The Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (PACG) translates the world’s best-selling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game (RPG) into an entirely new breed of card game, where players adventure, battle monsters and villains, and acquire new feats, items, weapons, and allies – all without a Game Master. The first game, PACG: Rise of the Runelords, made its debut at Gen Con Indy 2013, where it sold out in the first four hours. The follow up, Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Skull & Shackles, based on the pirate-themed Pathfinder RPG Adventure Path, is scheduled for release at Gen Con Indy 2014.
