How The Game Plays
On a typical turn a player will face an Enemy or Ordeal, and try to beat it by using their Slider to make their Courage and Sanity greater than what they are facing. Beating Enemies and Ordeals earns you Rewards as well as Heart and Mind points. Once you have earned enough points, you win the game.
If you're smart you can discover very cool or unusual combinations of cards, and great strategies for screwing with people, which is one of the things that makes Bedlam so much fun. The more games you play, the more strategies you will discover.
The game can be as short or as long as you like. Set the number of points you need to collect before the game starts, or even decide to play through the whole deck (although this could take a day and a night).
