Arcana Rising invites up to six spellcasters to participate in a competition to obtain arcane artifacts and cast mighty spells in an effort to gain knowledge and power. As they gather their mystical relics, they note the passing of the moons which amplify the power of certain schools of magic permitting wizards to cast spells at the peak of their power!

Arcana Rising is a drafting and engine-building game where players compete over three rounds to craft a magical engine that will power their collected artifacts and generate points for them at the end of the game.

On a turn, players pick a single card from the pile they are passed. Once a card has been chosen, players pass the remaining cards clockwise, then choose whether to add the newly acquired card to their tableau OR to discard the card in order to run their engine and cast their spells. Randomized moon tokens tell players which of their spells can be cast. Therefore the timing of executing your powers is almost as important as the powers themselves.

The cards fall into schools of Charms, Herbology, Potions, Blood Arts, Alchemy, and Artifacts. Only a single type of spell may be cast each turn, depending on a randomized order for that round.

After three rounds of drafting, players will calculate their scores based on the unique set of artifacts they have collected and the player with the most victory points wins!
