This is a strategy game in which players engage in turn-based card battles on a grid-like playing field. Players take turns selecting cards to summon fantastical creatures (e.g., dragons, elves, ninjas, dwarves, witches, giant lizards) on a game board. Creatures use magic spells, axe strikes, and sword slashes to attack enemy units on the board; card characters disappear in a plume of purple light when defeated (i.e., when their life points reach zero). Still-frame cutscenes add a dark tone to the relatively minimal depictions of violence; for example, "the tremors of earth soaked in the Children of Earth in blood." The text also contains the expletives "damn" and "hell" and a direct reference to alcohol (e.g., a "Drunken Demolition" card reads, "I wish I drowned to death in a sea of liquor"); one character is depicted with a lit cigar in his hand and mouth. Some cards depict female monsters—grey demon-like figures—in skin tight outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage.
