What Is vEmpire: The Beginning?
The game takes you back in time to Roman mythology. Remus and Romulus, legendary twin brothers, are the main focus. However, here is where the game takes a new direction. Their Empire is now aiming for the metaverse. (We already wrote an article about vEmpire.)
The Empire is about to conquer and absorb everything in its way. But, both brothers want to rule the metaverse. As a result, epic battles lay ahead.
Romulus shows his strength and leads his men. He is the responsible one and wins the hearts of his people. On the other hand, Remus is the devious one. Anything goes in his battle plans. He may lack Romulus’ popularity, but he is in it for the long run. Nonetheless, both command a strong army.
How to Play vEmpire: The Beginning
Before you start, you will need your MetaMask wallet, some VEMP, and either BNB or ETH. The latter depends on which network you choose for playing the game.
Once you join vEmpire: The Beginning, straight away you need to decide. Which of the two brothers’ armies are you going to join? Once you make a decision of which faction you join, the next decision is there. You can join the game here.

You have to decide how much VEMP you are going to spend on the battle. What is your risk factor going to be? Options in the game are 10%, 25%, and 50%. You need to agree with your opponent on the same risk factor for both players.
Your goal is to beat your opponent in a best of three rounds set up. At the start of the game, each faction has a deck of 41 faction-specific cards. Furthermore, there are 10 universal cards. Both factions can use and own these cards.
Once the players get ready for battle, they form their Legion. This is a set of 25 cards from their deck. At the start of the game, they receive 15 random cards from their Legion. The remaining cards go back to the Battle Deck. Some cards allow you to dip into the Battle Deck. As a result, you get new cards on top of your original hand.

Playing the Game
Each game consists of three rounds, and you need to win two rounds. You play each new round with cards that you haven’t used yet. Therefore, plan a strategy and choose your cards wisely. Don’t use all your best cards in the first round. So, are you going in with brute force? Or are you the cunning master who removes your opponent’s key players one by one?
The flipping of a virtual coin decides which player can start the game. The winner plays the first card and the game starts. Thereafter, players play their cards until they both decide to end a round or run out of cards.
Remember that used cards are out of the game. You need to complete three rounds with the 25 cards in your deck. On the other hand, there are cards that prevent cards from going out of play! Check out the video below, featuring a description of the game by vEmpire’s COO.
Winning the Game
Whoever wins two games out of three is the overall winner. The winner of a round is the player with a higher overall strength at the end of each round. However, although you may choose to end a round, your opponent can keep playing cards. A tactical tip is to not get tempted to keep playing all your cards in the first round. However, by doing so, you may be wasting useful cards. They can be of importance in the next round.
Boost Your Cards With NFTs
To summarize, you can also boost your cards with the Founding Soldiers NFTs.
- A Common card adds +1 Strength to your in-game card.
- On the other hand, Rare NFTs add +2 Strength and Unique NFTs add +3.
