Elements is a free online fantasy card game in which each player embodies an elemental--a spirit composed of an element. Elements are the fundamental building blocks of nature and express skills (unique to each element) that can be used in duels against another elemental.
Each skill corresponds to a card. Players pick which, and how many, cards to use in their duels, collect the cards in a deck, and then pit their deck against either an AI opponent or another player. New cards are obtained either by winning a match, which provides a modest chance of winning a random card from the opponent's deck, or by purchasing cards using Electrum coins, and also from finishing the 500 score quest (once). Coins are earned by winning matches and selling cards.
Each elemental receives 100 health points (HP) at the beginning of the match. The duel is over when one of the elementals runs out of health points or runs out of cards/decks out.
There are three types of cards:
- Creature cards: These cards will summon a creature that will fight for the elemental. Creatures have a certain amount of attack power and health points, and many have their own special skills.
- Spell cards: Spells have an immediate effect and are then discarded.
- Permanent cards: Permanents are artifacts, equipment, or any other item that will remain in play for an indefinite amount of time, the best example being pillars.
