So all I need to do to win all the time is have the strongest cards?

Strong cards are great to have but mindlessly summoning Yellows and Purple cards may not be the best strategy. Factions and their abilities play an important role in deciding the outcome of matches.

How do I activate the cards correctly when playing?

Ok here’s a checklist…. 1- Make sure you have enough light, if it’s too dark to read the card it’s too dark to play! 2- Don’t stack the cards on top of each other. remove and replace the cards whilst playing the game. 3- Push the cards together, if they’re too far apart from each other they’ll look at you, almost have them touching to make them battle. 4- Angle the camera/phone. If you’re not using the holder then make sure you hold the phone high enough that the camera can get a good scan of the card. 5- Clean camera, sometimes grease on the lens can affect activation. 6- Restart the app, if in doubt just restart the app
