The game has a draft mechanic where players play a card, pass the cards to the next player. Once each player has 5 cards revealed the end of the round begins. Players gain madness tokens for each card with tentacles on them. The player with majority of madness tokens from the round may gain 4 points or discard 1 madness token back to the supply. Each card has a scoring ability across the top. For each card that has it’s scoring satisfied players gain points listed on the card. Typically these cards deal with the suits that the cards have. After scoring if anyone has 9 or more madness tokens they lose the game. It is possible for both players to lose the game. Play continues through two more rounds as long as a player doesn’t go insane with madness tokens.
