Game play

  • Each round consists of 2 phases.
  • After the phases are played, the first player tile is passed to the left.

Placement Phase

  • The first player chooses a card and places it face down in the middle of the table.
  • The next player places another card to the left or right of all cards already placed.
  • You cannot play between cards.
  • Starting from the second round, you may place a card on top of your own card already in play.
    • While a card is underneath another card, it cannot be targeted or revealed.
    • It cannot gain influence or use its ability.
  • Once everyone has played a card, the placement phase is over.

Resolution Phase

  • Starting from the first card, players choose whether to reveal them.
  • If the card is not revealed, 1 influence is placed on it.
  • If the card is revealed, apply the card's effect and take all influences on it.
  • Repeat until the end of the queue is reached.
  • Each time you eliminate a card, you get 1 influence.
