    In Prime Wars, a strategic card battle game, players are transported to a fantasy world torn apart by the different races that exist there, with each race striving for survival and a chance to gain ultimate power. Like most wars, this one is full of mutiny, lies, and manipulation. The races have become fragmented, and now everyone fights for their own blood.

    In game terms, each player starts play with ten cards in hand; cards come in eight types, with six of them being races that have an advantage when played against a specific race. On a turn, you must play a card that beats the value of the top card currently in play, play a mercenary (which automatically beats the top card), or play a battleground (which has an effect like "the next player loses a turn" or "change the direction of play"). Heroes, for example, gain +2 when played on Beasts, but are otherwise worth their normal value. Some races have the power to play a second card at the same time as the first or give an opponent a card from the player's hand. If you can't play, then you must draw a card instead.

    The aim of the game is to have no cards left in your hand, so players will have to think strategically about which races they take to battle at each opportunity.
