You start by dealing three cards to each player and creating a row of nine cards in between the players. Each of these Relic cards has a number, a colour and a symbol. Each player takes turns to align their Magical Staff card so that it faces in the direction of the future.
Players take turns to play a card from their hand to move their Magical Staff card backwards or forward to take a new card into their hand, aiming to collect combinations of three similar cards (colour, number or symbol) to score a point. The first to five points wins.
It's super simple but with a few interesting twists. Firstly, if two Magical Staff cards end up on the same position, the player with the highest value cards steals a point from their opponent. Secondly, when a player completes a set of three cards, they swap them with cards in the row.
The result is a fascinating game about time and timing. You need to act decisively to claim that cards that you need, whilst anticipating the moves of your opponent. Fail to be ready for a clash and you lose one of your hard-earned points. So what starts out as a Solitaire-style puzzle, quickly becomes more like duelling a foe.
