The game is divided into a series of Derbies. At the end of each Derby, the player who controls the Combatants with the highest combined Strength is the winner, and the first player to win 3 Derbies is declared the champion.
A Derby is played over several turns. In each turn, players simultaneously deploy a card from their hand and then pass the rest of their cards to the player to their left.
The key to winning is choosing which Combatant to deploy while gathering information for later turns. â€¦
