The game is easy to learn but takes skill to master. It begins with players choosing their character and drawing resource cards. With your resources in hand you can choose to construct buildings, fight monsters or amass an arsenal of spells. Buildings allow you to generate additional resources each turn. Fighting off fiendish foes will reward you with glorious one time loot bonuses. Players may use spells to assist in the construction of buildings, the slaying of monsters, or with the proper character can be massive sources of victory points themselves. Character selection can be the difference between a glorious victory and soul crushing defeat. Each character has a different ability that will help you rack up those oh so important victory points. The player with the most victory points at the end of the game wins!
