Every game is different due to the randomized cards making up the Sin of Damnation; with a vast combination of locations and objectives possible, replayability abounds. To begin the game, players need to create the Location deck. They first select the Setup Location card that matches the appropriate number of players (ensuring a play experience that scales well). This card instructs them how to create the Location deck for the game... the dangerous enemy-infested areas that players must travel through these to reach their ultimate objective.

Location cards will call for certain Terrain cards to be put into play and indicate where they should be placed in the formation. Also, each Location card indicates how many Genestealers will inevitably spawn in that location before the Space Marines can move forward.
