Treacherous Turf is a card drafting combat game for 2 players. Each player draws a hand of seven cards, takes one and passes it on to the other player, until each player has a new hand of seven cards. Players then take turns to place these cards one at a time simultaneously onto one of three arenas. Once all seven cards have been played each arena is totaled, whoever has the most points on their side of the arena gets 1 point. After each arena has been totaled, the deck is shuffled and the drafting starts afresh. Play continues until one player reaches 5 points. If two players hit 5 points at the same time, another round continues until one player has more points than the other, revealing a clear winner.
