Luck & Logic (ラクエンロジック, Raku en Rojikku) is a media franchise created by Bushiroad with five other companies: Bandai Visual, Doga Kobo, Nitroplus, Lantis, and Yuhodo. It consists of a trading card game, with the first products released on February 28, 2016, and an anime television series by Doga Kobo.

Plot[edit]

The story takes place in the year L.C. 922, where the whole of mankind is facing an unprecedented crisis. Following the end of a 100-year war on the mythical world of Tetraheaven, the Majins who lost the war sought a safe haven and invaded the human world (called 'Septpia'). The government was forced to fight by dispatching Logicalists who are part of the ALCA, a special police force dedicated to protecting the streets from the foreigners of another world. These Logicalists are given a special power that will allow them to enter a 'trance' with the Goddesses from the other world.

One day, Yoshichika Tsurugi, a seemingly ordinary civilian living peacefully with his family and lacking 'Logic' meets the beautiful Goddess Athena after saving some people from a Majin attack. Athena possesses the 'Logic' that Yoshichika should have lost. What kind of unexpected destiny awaits these two? The fate of the world's future is decided by the 'Luck' and 'Logic' of these Logicalists.

Trading Card Game[edit]

The Luck & Logic trading card game was officially released in Japan on January 28, 2016. Trial deck 1 and 2, Brave Logic and Rinne Logic respectively, as well as the first booster expansion, Growth & Genesis, was released in English on the 24th of June 2016. Booster set 5, Trance Re:union, was the last set released for English edition of the game, which released the 31st of March 2017.

Gameplay[edit]

Luck & Logic is played between two players with pre-constructed decks. Players take turns playing cards, using abilities, and initiating battles. The game ends when one of two win conditions are met.

Win Conditions[edit]

There are two win conditions in Luck & Logic. A player wins by destroying all six of his opponent's gates or when his opponent refreshes twice. Refreshing is the act of shuffling one's drop zone back into the deck.

Deck Construction[edit]

These decks consist of 60 cards in total, 50 cards in the main deck and 10 cards in the gate deck. The main deck contains member, tactics, and paradox cards, and the gate deck must consist of exactly 10 gate cards. You may have up to four cards of the same name in the main deck, and up to two cards of the same Gate number in the gate deck.

Card Types[edit]

Member[edit]

There are three types of members in Luck & Logic: Logicalists, Foreigners, and Tranceunions.

Logicalists and Foreigners are members that can combine through Trance to form Tranceunions. These members can be played from hand or "sortied" by paying its cost using "stock," as long as its level is equal to or less than the number of cards in the player's level zone. Tranceunions may have a Logic Drive ability that can be played in the main phase, as long as the Tranceunion has "soul" under it. Tranceunions obtain "soul" when they are played through the Trance method. If they are played from the hand without using Trance, they do not have "soul" and cannot use their Logic Drive.

Tactics[edit]

Tactics cards are "event" cards that can be played during a battle, and they give the player's member an advantage in the battle.

Paradox[edit]

Paradoxes are horizontal cards that, like Tactics cards, can be played during a battle. These paradoxes change the rules of the battle and may swing the outcome of the battle.

Gate[edit]

These are the cards that make up the gate deck. The gate cards are placed face-down on every circle. When a gate is destroyed, it is flipped face-up. Destroying all of the opponent's gates is a win condition.
