"The land of Andora was peaceful until an ancient evil, Cryxx, called "The Claws of Night," was awoken and rallied to its side the savage beasts of Andora. Beorin, the great king of Andora, and the noble creatures of the land, band together to battle the evil horde."

Game Play

---------------

Each player is dealt 4 cards out of a 48 card deck (32 unique cards), with 4 suits (elements), and both players draw their first card. The first player plays a card, and then the next player plays a card in response. The highest value card wins. If both cards are tied, the player who won the last play wins. Each round begins with both players drawing a card. The winning player will play first.

Strategy/Tips

------------------

When playing the cards, if you are playing first, the best play is your highest value card. If you are playing second and if you have a card that can beat your opponent's card, then play that card.  If you do not have anything that can beat that card, it is best to play the lowest value card in your hand.
