Edges and Abilities
A quick demonstration of “Eye in the Sky” and “Swap” being used during the same hand.
Edges and Abilities are special actions that have direct impact on the game. Edges are character-specific and trigger automatically while Abilities are activated using Cunning and can be used with all characters.
In Grind Mode you can customize any character with free and unlocked Abilities.
In Contender Mode you’ll be playing with pre-determined builds called Contender Cards. Once you’ve unlocked competitive play with any one character you’ll be granted full customization privileges even in Contender Mode.
Abilities that do not need to be unlocked and can be added to any character build. Use Cunning to activate.
Must be unlocked before they can be customized but can be part of any Contender Card build. Use Cunning to activate.
