What is Achroma?

Achroma is a beautifully illustrated fantasy universe that can be explored by playing the Achroma card game, Achroma Adventure and the tabletop role playing game, Achroma Legends.

Across the Five Realms, the ravages of a dark energy called Achrom is spreading, diminishing the magical life force called Chroma. You, a Realm Runner traversing the Realms must choose a side and fight.

Achroma cards can be used across all of the Achroma games to gain, drain and steal Chroma shards from other players and NPCs to make your mark in the evolving universe, shaping it forever.

Download and use the Achroma apps designed for each Achroma game to assist and enhance your experience at the game table. Add your card collection digitally to your profile to unlock rewards, avatars and start your journey to help shape the future of the Five Realms.

Achroma Cards


Achroma cards depict Characters, Locations, Actions and Objects from the Five Realms, each with their own in-game strengths and abilities.

There are currently 500+ Achroma cards to collect, with a new release every 3 months. Each Achroma release contains 60 unique and collectible cards in 4 rarities: Legendary, Rare, Uncommon and Common.

These cards are used in the Achroma card game as well as Achroma Legends, the tabletop role playing game, or just to collect and trade.

Achroma cards feature Metacodes that allow you to register them to your Achroma account via the free Achroma companion app (available on iOS and Android). Each Common and Uncommon design has a code per design. Each Legendary and Rare printed card has a unique code per print, making each and every one unique.


Achroma Releases

Each Achroma release is focused around a narrative setting called a Chronicle. Each Chronicle takes place in an area of the Five Realms and is accompanied by new set of Achroma cards, keywords, lore, short stories, app updates and so much more.

Achroma is not just one game and we at Realm Runner Studios are always looking to release more immersive and creative games as we evolve.

The beauty of this for players is that the cards in your collection act as a single resource to be used across these games and formats. Your cards will remain important and of use in all future games.

One collection, many ways to play.

Whether you prefer card games, tabletop RPGs or the classic 'choose your own path' adventure games, there will be ways for you to have fun and immerse yourself in the Achroma universe.

Learn more about the different ways to play Achroma below.


Easy to learn, fun to master, this 2-6 player format allows you to play Achroma cards to battle your opponents across the Five Realms.

Each player needs a deck of 30 Achroma cards (40 for Heroes format) called a Palette. Use a pre-constructed Palette straight from an Achroma Palette box, or create your own from your Achroma card collection.

During a game of Achroma, you'll spend Shards – your life energy – to deploy and attack with heroic Characters, equip them with Objects, harness Locations and unleash cunning Actions. Doing so will enable you to Gain, Drain and Steal Shards in return. To win, gather 30 Shards in your Bank or reduce other players' Banks to 0.

Gameplay rules are free and available online now. You can also watch our tutorial videos and get at-the-table-assistance from the free Achroma app on iOS and Android.

Play supporting Characters, enter epic Locations, equip powerful Objects and cast groundbreaking Actions to progress past challenges and foes that will cross your path as you traverse the adventure set before you by the Realm Master.

Never far from the information you need. Once you have purchased and scanned your Achroma Legends unlock code, you'll have full access to the Achroma Legends Wiki which contains everything you need to play the game right at your fingertips with our revolutionary Achroma Legends Companion App.

The quickest way to get started with Achroma is with an Achroma First Edition box set. It’s just a matter of choosing which chronicle/release you like the look of most. Each is a totally legitimate standalone game out of the box, and they’re also 100% compatible with each other.

Each Achroma set contains 60 beautifully illustrated Achroma cards, split into 2 complete palettes (decks), ready to play out of the box.

Each palette contains:
1 Legendary card (with luxury embossed finish)
4 Rare cards (with luxury embossed finish)
9 Uncommon cards
16 Common cards

There are 6 pre-constructed palettes in each release, split between 3 factions. The palette combination you receive is random, but always from different factions.

You can keep the two palettes as they are – perfect for two players – or add them all to your Achroma collection, and build you own palettes – ideal for the collector.
