Excerpt: It is not as simple as collecting rewards and placing monsters though. At the beginning of each turn, ceptors (card users) have the option of using spell cards: each having a different effect. A simple one is Magic Bolt, which simply does 20 damage to a creature on the map. Later, a more powerful card you might find is Meteor, which takes a land down to its base level. Leveling lands is an option available to ceptors that have creatures on the map.
Excerpt: Culdcept is a name that won't be familiar to many people -- well, unless you've recently spent time in Japan or keep yourself wired in with the pop culture fads of the country. In a sense, Culdcept could be compared with the Magic: The Gathering phenomenon in the States. It is a popular Collectable Card Game in Japan that combines elements of Yu Gi Oh (creature casting, battles and spells) with the mechanics of Monopoly .
