How to play the game... in three images!

1) The investigator and the cultist each have 6 cards and 4 tokens.

2) The investigator chooses a card from her hand and places it face down. She then bids 2 of her tokens. At this point the cultist has a choice - he can either take the 2 tokens and let the investigator have the card OR he can bid 3 of his own tokens to try and win the card. In the second image, the cultist bids 3 tokens.

3) The investigator loses her card but gains 3 additional tokens. So while the cultist gained the early card advantage, the investigator has the bidding upper hand.

Now it would be the cultist's turn to try and gain a card or bidding tokens.

The game plays in 5 rounds. You attempt to collect both halves of an Elder God or artifact to use its power. Whoever has the most control points at the end of the game wins.
