From The Dim Future Wiki
- The leader
- 6 areas: 2 Wastelands and 4 other areas that share a faction with the leader
- A group of exactly 50 cards that may not include areas or leaders. This is the group that is drawn from.
In addition, the deck may not include more than 4 cards with any given name.
Often, the word "deck" is used to refer to the 50 cards that are drawn from during the game. This meaning of "deck" is a zone of play during the game.
