The Boomsday Project is the second expansion coming out in the Year of the Raven! Our expansion guide will feature card spoiler list, gameboard art, card backs, general artwork, and more! I’ll be updating this guide immediately following the release of any new information.
- Release Date – August 7, 2018.
- New Keyword – Magnetic – Minions with “Magnetic” can be played normally, or fused with another Mech. Fusing Mechs will add the Magnetic Mech’s stats and effects to the one on the board, working just like a buff card!

The Puzzle Lab
The Boomsday Project is a scientific endeavor of maddening scope, so Dr. Boom is calling in everyone to help . . . including interns! All the wacky science being done at the Boom Labs—not to mention the blatant disregard for ethics and safety— has resulted in quite a mess, and someone’s got to clean it up.
In The Boomsday Project’s single-player mode, The Puzzle Lab, players can earn Dr. Boom’s favor by solving over 100 different mind-boggling puzzles. Players will be have to wrestle with a variety of brain-teasers that’ll put their wits to the test, like Lethal puzzles, which challenge them to make a match-winning play with a specific board state, or Survival puzzles, which task them to stay alive against stacked odds with scant tools at their disposal. Bright researchers who survive the gauntlet will earn a one-on-one with Dr. Boom himself, at his personal workshop.
The Puzzle Lab opens on August 21.
Each one of these experiments requires you to complete each puzzle based on the theme of the experiment. Here’s a list and description of the themes:
- Lethal (Destroy the enemy hero): In this experiment, the assistant is tasked with neutralizing the opponent in one turn using the cards at their disposal. We expect this will provide valuable insights into the destructive properties of many of our inventions.
- Mirror (Create a perfectly mirrored battlefield): These tasks challenge the assistant to create a board state where both sides are perfect mirror images of each other: minion positioning, health, attack, etc. This should yield plentiful data on various means of board manipulation.
- Board Clear (Clear the battlefield of minions): Pretty straightforward: clear the board of all minions. Our research suggests that minions play an important role in winning matches, and this set of challenges will help us better understand how to get rid of them.
- Survival (Survive the enemy Hero Power): Finally, the Survival trial requires the test subject to restore their own health in order to survive their opponent’s next onslaught. A recent study has shown that dropping to zero health inversely correlates with winning games, and this experiment will further explore that relationship.

Here’s a bunch of full card art from The Boomsday Project. We’ll be adding more as it’s released, so be sure to check back often. Click an image to enlarge!
The key art usually sets the theme of the expansion. It gives the designers a good idea of the feel of the set, so they can model their artwork after it.
