Arcmage is a free game. This means that the source code is available to be studied, modified, and distributed. Most projects look for help with testing, documentation, graphics, etc., as well.

Arcmage is a tabletop and digital turn-based strategy customizable card and deck building game[12] within a fantasy setting created by a community of free culture-loving individuals first released in 2018. As a player (or arc-mage) you battle your opponents by summoning creatures and casting spells. You’ll have to defend your cities, manage your resources and power supply and conjure up a strategical plan to capture your opponent's cities.

Arcmage can be played by two or more players, either in person with printed cards or online with digital cards. It supports both pre-game deck building as random drafting. Although one-vs-one is the most played variant, the game supports other constellations and formats as well. E.g. one-vs-one-vs-one, one-vs-two, one-vs-three.

New cards are released on a regular basis through new sets. Unlike other similar card games, the cards are available under the CC-BY-SA4.0 license, and are available for download in high quality print ready pdf. Players can opt for a DIY[13] approach and download-print-cut-play or get the professionally printed card boxes. In either case, the DIY or pro cards are perfectly legally in both casual as tournament play. Therefore there's no artificial scarcity of cards due to an 'invented' rarity in production or utility in gameplay. Arcmage abolishes the pay-to-win model[14] and solely relies on the player's deck building and strategical skills. All players can enjoying the full game experience so there's no need for a pauper-format[15] as seen in other games.

Arcmage is truly 'free for all'.
