New Keyword/Mechanic – Tourist

Tourist keyword is the main new mechanic of the Perils in Paradise expansion. It’s a clever way to add Dual-Class deck building without adding any actual Dual-Class Cards. Each class gets one Legendary Tourist card, letting them “vacation” in another class during deck building.

For example, Paladin’s Sunsapper Lynessa is a Rogue Tourist. It means that if you add her to your Paladin deck, you will also be able to use any Rogue cards from Perils in Paradise during deck building. This will let you take advantage of interesting synergies that wouldn’t normally be available.


There are some limitations, of course. You can ONLY use cards from Perils in Paradise (that includes the cards added in the mini-set in the future), no cards from previous and future expansions can be used. You also can’t add the other class’ Legendary Tourist card, you can only Dual-Class, not Multi-Class. It’s also a one-way street – Paladin can build decks using Rogue cards, but Rogue can’t build decks using Paladin cards (Rogue “dual classes” into Warlock instead).

Each class can “vacation” in a single class, ending up with a neat circle. Paladin is a Rogue Tourist, Rogue is a Warlock Tourist, Warlock is a Death Knight Tourist, and so on. Here’s a full infographic with all of the class connections:


One thing is sure, the deck building in Perils in Paradise will be way more interesting because each class has access to 9 more cards than usual, as long as they’re willing to run the Tourist card.

Other Mechanics – Drinks & Destinations

Two other recurring mechanics in this expansion will be Drink Cards & Destinations. They are not keyworded, just a series of a few cards with very similar themes/effects.

The first mechanic is Drink spells with three uses. There will be 6 of them in total. You might actually recognize the mechanic from cards like Bunch of Bananas and Barrel of Monkeys – those Drink spells will work the same way. They come with relatively weak effects, but their advantage is that they can be used multiple times at the cost of a single card.


The second mechanic is special Location cards that can re-open immediately when you meet certain conditions. Normally when you use a Location card, you have to wait two turns to re-use it. But let’s take a look at the Hiking Trail below – instead of waiting 2 turns, you can gain Armor and the Location will be usable again right away. You can even get all three uses in a single turn.

Of course, even if you don’t meet the extra condition, those Location cards will STILL open the regular way (after 2 turns). But if you run them in the right deck and time things correctly, you can get their entire value immediately.
