Players seek to prove they are the most esteemed wizard in the land by filling their shelves with similar types of ingredients and completing spells. Players draft cards from center stacks in an attempt to build out their shelf tableau and unlock new scoring mechanics. Players can also use abilities from spells to change up the game and their collection of ingredients.
When all the cards are drafted players tally up points based on their unlocked scoring and adjacent similar ingredients. Players also lose points if they match up items of the same color.
