Game of the Week: Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre

At Board Game Geek: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/112686/epic-spell-wars-battle-wizards-duel-mt-skullzfyre

Epic Spell Wars is a humorous card game for 2-6 players. Each person plays a battle wizard trying to prove that she is the most powerful one of all. Players attempt to make spells from the cards in their hand. Cards come in three flavors: a starting card called the Source, a middle card called the Quality, and a finishing card called the Delivery. The cards have a glyph in the lower left-hand corner: if you match the glyphs on each card, you perform extra damage with your dice roll. Players start with 20 health points, and play continues until only one player is left alive.

Play begins with players laying out a spell face-down in front of them. Spells with the lowest amount of components go first. If all spells are of three components, then the one with the highest delivery number goes first. The Source card will state who is the target of the spell - for example, it might be your strongest foe. The Quality card directs you to roll dice to determine damage taken. The Delivery card can modify the damage taken based on a dice roll.
