Players form a party with a maximum of 6 characters whereby each character has their own set of cards representing their behavior, thus building a deck. They can choose to go on an adventure, challenging various dungeons along the way with their deck. The adventure ends when the player has surpassed 50 levels (50層), or has run out of Health Points (HP) or Card Points (CP), after which they may go on another adventure. CP acts as stamina and 1 CP is consumed for every card played, but CP will be recovered when playing cards on the Adventure Highroad. Every challenge to adventure resets the players card deck and parties to their initial state. The only items carried over after the adventure ends are Gold coins (金貨) and Silver coins (銀貨), as well as experience points (経験値). The players earns two times of these rewards if they manage surpass 50 battles. A score is also earned at the end of each adventure, and is recorded on the leaderboards on Google Play Game Services for Android and Game Center for iOS.
The games uses a turn-based battle system. The player draws cards from the deck and plays cards alternately from the hand. The battle ends when either the player or opponent has 0 HP, or when the player has 0 CP. If they player manages to reduce the opponents HP to 0, the player earns rewards as well as a reward card which he can choose from 6 reward cards. Gold and Silver coins and experience points are only obtained when the player returns to town. The Player is free to play any number of cards, with a maximum of 7 cards per turn. When the deck has zero cards left, the discard pile is shuffled to mix in the deck, forming a new deck. Cards played add actions and determines the behavior of he turn depending on the card played.
There are five actions: Attack (アタック), Magic (マジック), Heal (ヒール), Guard (ガード), and Technique (テクニック).
The effective amount of attack, defense and recovery is determined by the total combined parameter, consisting of strength, intellect, piety, and vitality.
STR (筋力) x Attack = Physical Damage
INT (魔力) × Magic = Magic Damage
PIE (信仰) × Heal = HP recovery amount
VIT (忍耐) × Guard = Physical Defense amount
Technique itself has no effect, but it can trigger the condition for skills and passive effects which requires a certain amount of technique or more.
