What is LackeyCCG?

LackeyCCG is a tool for playing any CCG (collectible card game) online (or offline in solitaire mode). It's also a great tool for building and designing decks. You can create your own CCG or download a plugin of an existing game and play with your friends.

II – How to connect to Server and find more players:

1º Build a deck in “Deck Editor” tab and don’t forget to save it OR use a Precon Deck clicking in "Browse" button OR convert your deck from ELD format (FELD/ARDB/Etc) to LackeyCCG format using the bellow tool:

In "Deck Editor" you can use a "Format" dropbox to filter Library, Crypt and Storyline cards.

The deck conversion tool not recognizes some VtES cards, Check your decks after conversion.

2º Go to “Server” tab, put your nick name in "Login" field, click in "Refresh Server list from the tracker" button and then connect to the official LackeyCCG server OR you can make your own IP Server in "Start your Server Menu" OR you can "Connect to a Server from IP"

3º After the connection to the official LackeyCCG server you will see a main server window where you can see another players and another’s games (magic, wow, 5rings, etc), you can talk to another players in below Chat, join a game available in the right "Description" field or host your own game clicking in "Host a game..."

2º Join or host (create) a game.

3º Wait for all other players sit in Main Game Window

4º load our deck by right clicking in your avatar's button and then "Load Your Recent Deck" OR you go in the deck editor section, click in the button "Choose" and then "Load Deck to You".

5º Shuffle your "Crypt" and "Library" right clicking on their texts of their tabs right below the gaming table (both library and crypt are automatically shuffled as your load the deck, but the program does not shuffle properly, so I suggest you shuffle at least five times for a possible better result).

6º Roll a D20, right-clicking on the game table and then clicking in "Roll D20" or typing: /rolld20 on the chat below.

7º The highest number sit in the first position and choose the place he will put his vampires (crypt cards) by clicking on the "Draw Crypt" tab under the game table. Then, the second players sits below the first one, put his cards on the game table and so on until all players position themselves in the game table. To see his/her crypt cards on the table, simply select the card and press SHIFT once.

8º To play cards from hand to table just drag and drop the card to the game table or right click on it and click "Play".

9º To pay cost of cards, influence minions or lose pool use controls in the right side of your avatar.

10º To see all players in game with more than 2 players just resize the avatar screen using a colored bar bellow the avatar field.

11º   To shift phases or shift from one player to another, just click in the arrow controls bellow your avatar colored bar.

Unfortunately turn order don't show right player order, this will be corrected in future new version of program.
