Gameplay in Scrolls is an interesting hybrid where players control a hand of cards that can be played on a board. The objective of each match is to destroy your opponent's totems (located at the end of the board), which will require you to play the various creatures you have in your hand.
Each turn, players can sacrifice a card to get an additional point of manna (used to play the cards), or to draw two new cards. These options have both benefits and drawbacks, so you'll need to consider them carefully before acting.
In Scrolls there are over 350 different cards (or scrolls, actually), each with its own design and representation on the board, as well as its own attributes. Some cards let you summon creatures and others cast spells to improve your situation.
Scrolls is an excellent and very polished game where the hand of Mojang (creators of Minecraft) is quite obvious. The card-based duels are dynamic and fun, and you can even play online against other players or enjoy challenges and single-player missions.
