In Scrolls, as with many card games, your cards can have pre-defined skills (such as "Haste") which offer bonus powers to your units. When some of these skills appear on cards, they are also defined on the card. (i.e "Haste: Card comes into play with a countdown of 0.")

However, while glancing at my beginner deck, I noticed that some of these cards appear to have skills without a definition. For instance, the Crossbowman has a skill called "Ranged Attacks" but what that means isn't defined.

Is there a list within or game, or some where else, explaining what these skills are and what they do?

This Wiki (there are probably more Wikis too) shows a comprehensive list of all scrolls currently in the game. The special talents (like "Ranged attacks") are also explained: Ranged attack


You can get an explanation of the various abilities by viewing the card in game, and hovering your mouse over them.

This works in the Deck Builder: enter image description here

  • Mouse-hover... I don't know why I didn't think of that. Thank you.

  • On Android (and iOS I assume) if you click on the text box it'll "flip" the card and show you all of the special rules (since tablets generally don't have mice).

From the ScrollsGuide team, there is this App on Android:


The description says:


A Guide to Scrolls is a reference to accompany every Scrolls player. It's the most complete collection of information about every scroll available, and features community-written tutorials for the latest game by Mojang.

With this app, you can:

  • Know everything! Look up categorized info about every scroll.

  • Stay up to date! Read official news directly from Mojang.

  • Find specific scrolls! Sift out scrolls by resource or type.

  • Learn from others! Read up on the latest strategy & techniques with community-written guides.

  • Rank yourself! See the top Scrolls players, realtime. Search functionality and ranking graphs to see stats for every player.

  • Know when to play! See full game statistics.

It doesn't cost a thing and is completely ad-free.

  • Could you clarify "From the developers"? I don't see any evidence that this app is from Mojang.

  • The app is from Koen Basten who is not a developer, but he is part of the ScrollsGuide team (src: scrollsguide.com/users/kbasten). I'll update the answer
