  3. Choose a hero

    Choose a hero to play against. Each hero has a different style of play, and the deck is based around the strengths of the hero.

  4. Play the game

    At the start of the game, each player is allowed to redraw parts of their starting hand. Each player gains one gem per turn, and gems are replenished each turn to allow additional actions. Summon minions and use spells to defeat the enemy hero. To win the game reduce the opposing hero to zero hit points.

  5. Practice and improve

    Choose to play one of three modes: play, solo adventure or arena. Play mode matches one player against another player. Solo adventure mode allows players to practice against the game engine and is a good way to gain additional cards to enhance your deck. Arena mode is a gauntlet-style multiplayer option where a player plays with a group until three loses are accumulated.
