The game seems to function well if you are some more than minimum number of players. A lot of interaction between the players makes it a good game.

A chaotic card game, where you mark your current status on a player mat. You try to reach your secret victory goal, buy playing resource cards as followers, mystic power and gold cards on yourself and dragons on your opponents. There are spell cards, event cards and deity cards, which gives give you advantages and protection. The different powers, which depends of how far you are on the mat makes it extra interesting. Although the chaos factor is high, I like this game quite much and rate it 7 (out of 10). ML=6, SL=6, TB=6 (mainly because they thought the game became a bit long.

Extract from Essen report 2001-10-16 “Mystic War” was first played. A pretty old and chaotic card game, where you mark your current status on a player mat. You try to reach your secret victory goal, buy playing resource cards as followers, mystic power and gold cards on yourself and dragons on your opponents. There are spell cards, event cards and deity cards, which gives give you advantages and protection. The different powers, which depends of how far you are on the mat makes it extra interesting.
