The game only takes a few minutes to set up and 30 minutes to play. With 38 interchangeable decks it is also ideal for a whole day of gaming. Recommended for ages 14 and above or younger with parental supervision.

Each player begins with 3 starting spells and creatures. The centre of the gameplay area contains a pool of 16 communal decks of cards. There are 38 interchangeable decks in the box to allow for a variety of gameplay. The rule book has four suggested formats to choose from and a guide on how to create your own set up.

A player’s turn is split into 2 stages: Gain and Combat. In the Gain stage, players earn dice based on the creatures in their army. Stronger creatures give dice of greater number and strength. The dice are then rolled. In the Combat stage the player matches the symbols rolled on the dice with the many different actions available on their cards. Actions include casting spells, summoning creatures, stealing, healing, attacking and defending.

Every turn there will be multiple actions the player can choose from. The player ends their turn when they run out of dice to complete actions. They can also choose to keep some dice for the next round. Play continues to the next player. The game ends when one player’s health drops to 0. The remaining player wins and is declared the greatest summoner in the land.
