In addition, it maintains transparency in the game, meaning all the cards in the game have a verified supply and historical record.
The players battle with each other by choosing different types of battles like ranked battles and practice battles. The ranked battles help players to increase their rating.
On a plus side, the beginners can also play the ranked battles without any trouble, as a rating below 100 does not lose any ranking points.
The battles generally happen between players having similar strengths. And in the game, the players from both sides must choose six monster cards and one summoner card for the battle. One can win the battle by destroying all the monster cards of the opponent.
The game, in general, is free to play, but the players must buy the summoner's spellbook for US$10 to unlock the complete game. With the summoner's spellbook, players can assess several other features that could be redeemed for real currency.
The game’s daily users are over 0.3 million, and according to DappRadar, it is one of the most popular games on any blockchain. In addition, the game doesn't promote itself. So, its popularity comes from word of mouth.
