The Apeiron x Talon Nova Tournament follows a double-elimination bracket format, with best-of-one and best-of-three matches.

Every player prepares three decks, each featuring a different avatar. Once a deck wins in a game, it becomes ineligible for use for the remainder of that set.

Apeiron is a play-and-earn game that utilizes NFTs to offer players unique gaming experiences and real-world rewards. It blends classic gameplay with modern elements, incorporating aspects of roguelite and battle arena genres.

In Apeiron, players assume the role of Godlings, powerful beings tasked with assisting Doods — adorable universal inhabitants — in overcoming daily challenges and constructing their societies.

Godlings wield control over elemental forces like rain and fire to aid the Doods in their tasks.

The game rewards players with NFTs in the form of Planets, Stars, and Relics. These NFTs represent unique digital assets that players can own and trade.

Moreover, Apeiron introduces an exciting feature called Celestial Conjunction, where players with multiple planets can participate in breeding events to create entirely new and distinct Planet NFTs.
