Quick Guide

Your deck

Your deck holds 25 unique monster and power cards. Monster cards form the basis of your deck. With power cards you power up your monster cards or enhance them with special effects.

!Players agree to an X amount of destroys in order to win!

This is what the board looks like:

The playing board.

Your Deck

Created with Sketch.

To the player's right resides the deck space. Here players place their shuffled decks of 25 cards before starting a game of Monster Club.

The playing board

Created with Sketch.

In the center of the board resides The Playing Board. It consists of three free playing spaces. Players need to carefully select to which spaces they play their monster and power cards to create stacks.

Move or Attack

A stack always consist of one monster card and of none to multiple power cards. Once per turn a stack can move one space to its left or right if that space is not in use. Stacks opposite to one another are called 'conflicting' and can initiate an attack on each other. If a stack has been moved it cannot initiate an attack during the same turn.

Card Effects

Some cards have the effect to target a specific side of the board. If this is the case it is always specifically mentioned which board is targeted.

  • 'Your board' is always the side of the board of the card owner.
  • 'Your opponent's board' is always the side of the board of the card owner's opponent.
  • 'The board' or ‘any board’ targets both sides and therefore the  full board.

Your grave

Created with Sketch.

To the player's left resides the grave. Here all cards from the original owner's deck end up when destroyed. Cards from an opponent can never end up in your grave and vise versa.

CARD EFFECTS

Some cards have the effect to target a specific grave. If this is the case it is always specifically mentioned which grave is targeted.

  • 'Your grave' is always the grave of the card owner.
  • 'Your opponent's grave' is always the grave of the card owner's opponent.
  • 'Any grave' targets both graves.


It's your turn

Players take turns to play cards and attack. At the start of each turn you draw until you hold 5 cards. 

At the end of each turn you always need to have at least one monster card on your board. If that's not possible with your current hand you have to show it and return it to your deck. Shuffle and draw again.

Stack 'em

You can stack power cards to monster cards. Again: it is up to you whether you do that face up or face down. However, take note that a face down card is not active whilst a face up card is. Also: You cannot stack face up power cards to a face down monster.

Take note of the power card indicator in the monster card's bottom left. It is the maximum amount of power cards that may be stacked to it.

More about Monster Cards

This is a monster card.

Monster card name: Every monster card has a name displayed at the top. Multiple monsters of the same name are not allowed in one deck if not stated otherwise on the card. 


Power card limit: At the bottom left corner an icon is displayed showing a number. This is the power card limit. It shows the amount of power cards this specific monster can hold.

Score: At the bottom center of each monster card  a score is displayed. This is the monster card's attack force. When in conflict scores are calculated. The stack with the lowest score is sent to the grave.


Type: At the bottom right the monster card's type is displayed. This is either 'rock', 'paper' or 'scissors'. Players only turn to their monster's type when in a conflict in which scores are equal. In this case rock is dominant over scissors. Scissors is dominant over paper. And paper is dominant over rock. The inferior stack is sent to the grave.


Special effect: Some monsters have special effects. If so, these are displayed above the score. The rules on the cards are always superior to the game's main rules.


There always must be at least 1 monster card on your field during your turn. If there is no monster card on your field and you hold only power cards you must show your hand to your opponent. Your opponent may now destroy on of these cards. Put the remaining cards back in your deck, shuffle and draw 5 new cards.

More about Power Cards

Created with Sketch.
This is a power card.

Power card name: Every power card has a name displayed at the top. Multiple power cards of the same name are not allowed in one deck if not stated otherwise on the card.


Special effect: Below the visual of the power card its special effect is described. Some power cards only have a calculation effect. In this case, often there is no description needed. The rules on the cards are always superior to the game's main rules.

Power card indicator: A power card can be distinguished by the bottom left icon showing the letter 'P'.

Calculation: At the bottom center of some power cards the calculation of its effect can be found.


Type: At the bottom right the power card's type is displayed. It is rarely necessary. In the case the situation occurs in which power cards clash this works the same as for monster cards.


⚠️ Power cards are never standalone cards and must always be stacked to a monster card. Always take note of the 'Power card maximum' of the monster you stack a power card to.

Attack!

At the end of your turn you can initiate attacks on the conflicting stacks. During an attack all cards involved turn face up. The stack with the highest calculated score remains in place whilst the stack with the lowest score is sent to the owner's grave.

When stacks are equal players turn to their monster's type. That's either rock paper or scissors. The dominant type remains.

After you attacked it's your opponent's turn!
