Animus Set 1 - Card Drafting Battle Game

In an attempt to rule the universe, mysterious entities sought the power of the E=Cube. Their tampering caused it to erupt and scatter its power across time and space. All over the multiverse, various beings were infused with parts of this power. But it came at a price; they were subject to the beckon of the mysterious entities. Now they are called to the far reaches of the universe in a war for ultimate supremacy!

Animus is a card-drafting battle game! Draft characters from different worlds, time periods and even other dimensions. To win you must take advantage of the various abilities and powers to maximize your resistances and strike at your opponents weaknesses.
