The Official TAV Rules


Hey folks. Here is the link to the brand-spanking-new Spellfire: The Antigonish Variant rules.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. Although I have been playing this version of Spellfire since 2000, this is the first time the rules alterations and changes from standard Spellfire have been codified in an official document.

If you've been curious to try the format, now's the time! Tell me what you think.

***UPDATE 1! Link to rules now actually works! :) ***

P.S. I have been asked about the Dungeon changes. I do have a post explaining my rationale for each change here. I think these changes make dungeons more fun and less confusing.

***UPDATE 2! Link to the Spellfire Reference Guide, vol.3 is here. ***

  1. How do you handle the card Tithian(301 1st ed) with the TAV rules?I am guessing champions that defend more than once are hard too get rid of in combat without a quick kill method.

    1. Tithian razes Nibenay immediately. Tithian can't be prevented from razing a realm by Pit Trap (although he's still discarded). Basically if Tithian wins, the realm is flipped immediately. He's still a good card in TAV, but not as great as he is in standard.

  2. Great to see these finally released!

    One quick question though - the rules mention a Spellfire Reference Guide vol. III. I was unaware of such a book; presumably it was published online somewhere. Where can I get ahold of it?

    1. Yes there is a volume 3, which includes all of the cards made after volume 2. I have a .pdf on my other computer, I forgot where I downloaded it from. Email me at marc.dalesandro@gmail.com and I will write back and attach a copy for you.

  3. I type a random search into the internet fairly often. Sometimes it has to do with old games that I really liked. Spellfire was one of these games. I am really excited about reading through the variant rules. At one time I made spreadsheets for hundreds of card ideas. Hope to share these with others at some point. Thanks for keeping Spellfire burning!

    1. That would be awesome, TCL. I haven't played in a real tournament since 2001. I hear that GenCon has some Spellfire tourneys, but of course they don't play TAV there.
