For generations, Elementary College has been training aspiring magicians to master the mysteries of water, fire, earth and air. In its basement is the largest magical library in the world. The most powerful spells are hidden there from the eyes of young apprentices like you. It is even said that you can find the Big Book of Madness, a huge grimoire with mysterious powers. We warned you: opening this book would be the biggest mistake a magician could make...probably threats in the air invented by teachers to keep the best spells. Last night, you decided to open the doors of the Forbidden Library and finally access the power you are entitled to...

Play as apprentice magicians in search of adventure who, recklessly, opened an old grimoire... Together, turn the pages of this evil book and close it by fighting the terrible monsters that escape. Each player has different elements in his deck that allow him to cast or learn spells, get new cards, destroy a curse to weaken a monster, or heal himself to avoid going mad. The spells will be particularly useful to help your teammates, improve your deck and optimize your hand.

But be careful: monsters will not remain defenseless: they will inflict destructive effects on you and will eventually drive you crazy if you don't finish them on time. To overcome this, you will need to work together and combine your strengths wisely.
