As powerful alchemists, players enter into an arcane competition. With mysterious artefacts and fantastic creatures, they must try and win control of coveted places of power before their opponents. The elementary essences are rare, however, and have to be used with care: should you use the philosophers’ stone to produce gold? Or can a sea serpent help keep your adversaries in check? The game furnishes the players with a limited personal arsenal: in total each player receives just eight artefacts and creatures at the beginning. To come out on top in this war of wizards you’ll need to make clever use of your deck of cards, identify the best combos and be willing to adapt your strategy.
