Introduction[edit | edit source]
Some cards have sockets. If you insert a gem in the socket and pay for the gem's costs, then you get the gem's benefits. For example, Rotting Knight is a 2/1 zombie that costs ③ resources and has thresholds. If you insert a white gem and you have a white threshold, then it becomes a 2/3 zombie. But if you insert a red gem and have a red threshold, then it becomes a 2/1 zombie with . So you can customize socketable cards however you like.
You can find a complete list of socketable cards at Hex TCG browser and Hex card search engine.
Gems[edit | edit source]

Rules[edit | edit source]
For both PvP and PvE:
- You cannot use more than 4 copies of each gems per deck.
- You can insert major gems in minor sockets, but not vice versa.
- If you don't pay the gem's costs, then you won't get the gem's benefits, but you can still play the card normally.
- If you create a socketable card in battle, then it will have a random gem with your threshold.
- You can change gems between rounds like you change reserved cards.
- Some computers use different gems than we do.
