Throughout the game, you’ll gain Insight, which you can use to Awaken your Fighters, permanently upgrading their abilities, or unleash their powerful Signature Moves.

HOW TO PLAY ENMITY ENGINE - ACTION PHASE - Take one Action. You can do things like draw cards or buff your Attacks. Select a Move. Choose a Move Card from your hand and set it face-down. You won't know what your opponent picked until both players have chosen. Can you outwit your opponent? - BATTLE PHASE - Players reveal & resolve their Moves. Switch your Active Fighter OR launch an Attack. - CLEANUP PHASE - Gain Insight. If your Attack dealt Damage, add your Move Card to your Insight Zone. You can spend Insight to Awaken your Fighters to upgrade them or use it to fuel your Fighter's powerful Signature Moves. If you didn't deal Damage, you get nothing!
