“The game is played 1 versus 1 and each player begins the match with a hand of 4 playing cards randomly selected from their card deck, 20 Health Points (abbreviated HP) on their nexus, and 0 mana. Before the match begins players also have the option to trade out any of the first 4 cards they drew for new randomly generated ones.
After this pre-game phase concludes both players receive 1 mana gem and only one player receives the attack token, while the other receives the defense token. Only the player with the attack token may attack during this round and after each round the tokens switch between players and each player draws 1 random card from their deck.”
