2. The Official Trailer
Here is the official trailer.
3. New Game Mechanics
The Khajiit are closely connected to the twin moons orbiting Tamriel. Their lunar phases play a key role in one of the new mechanics.
Wax and Wane
Cards (Khajiit?) with wax-and wane-power enter play with one of two abilities dictated by the ‘waxing’ and ‘waning’ phases of the moons. These phases change at the end of each of your turns, so timing is key! One odd turns (1, 3, 5, 7, …), a card with this power gains their waxing benefits. However, when the card enters play on even turns, the waning takes effect.
The second new mechanic in Moons of Elsweyr is Consume. This mechanic relates to the dark art of necromancy that runs unchecked amidst the unrest in Elsweyr. With Consume, you can remove a card in your discard pile from the game to gain advantages as stated on the Necromancer.
The following articles look a little deeper at the mechanics.
