Uses ANY trading card series including:

***RULES***
Get a bunch of trading cards, you can mix up different sets like Star Wars + Power Rangers + Bakugan.
Divide all the cards into these four types:
1) Character - includes monsters, groups, partners
2) Location- includes, land, mana, places
3) Battle - includes versus, battle scenes, spells, actions, techniques
4) Item - includes, relics, weapons, cars, accessories and things.

Now Each player Chooses 1 Character card that they want to be, and put your card in front of you.
Shuffle all the other cards and make a deck, put it face down.
If your only playing 1 player I recommend 5 of each card, meaning:
Character cards x 5
Location cards x 5
Battle cards x 5
Item cards x 5
-----------
Total = 20 cards for your deck

A deck = your adventure.

To begin your adventure, pull out a card
Here are the possibilities that can happen in this turn:

1) You pull out a Character card, then you must battle it.
To battle roll dice for the enemy (enemy goes first)
then roll dice for your battle point.
The higher point wins. In a draw, If you roll the same, then you re-roll.
If you lose then you are out of the game.
If you win then put the enemy card face down in the junk pile.

2) You pull out a Location card, place this card to the left of your card.
3) You pull out a battle card, place this card to the bottom of your card.
4) You pull out an item card, place this card to the top of your card.
5) You pull out a friend card, place this card to the right of your card.
Friend cards are character cards, there are 3 types of character cards,
A) You
B) Enemy
C) Friend

After you pull out one card and do the required move, then the next person goes, or if your playing alone, you proceed to your next turn.

You want to Collect as many Location, Battle, Item and Friend cards as you go.

If there is another deck, then you can pull out from that deck if you use one of your Location cards (if you have one). After you use the Location card discard it to the junk pile.

During a battle, after you roll the dice for yourself, if your not satisfied with the number you rolled you may choose to escape by using a Location card. After you do so, get rid of the Location card into the junk pile and put the enemy card back in the deck and reshuffle it, you may encounter that enemy again.

During a battle, a battle card gives you one point to your dice roll. If you roll a 2 and if you have 3 battle cards, then you can use all 3 to get a total of 5 battle points to hopefully defeat your enemy. The battle cards you use, must be tossed into the junk after you added them to your dice roll.

A Friend card is a character card that you meet along the way in your adventure and become pals with. They become your Hit Points. So if you lose a battle, you toss a friend card to the junk pile and continue with your adventure.

An Item card is very handy indeed. It acts as a wild card and can be used as a Location, Battle (better to use as a Friend card) or Friend card.
