Game Info

Nightly, the Wizards of the academy gather in the basement to complain about ignorant nobles, boast of their ethereal exploits, and spend what little magical energy they have left in a high stakes game of Hocus. It is a classic game twisted and enriched with the trickery of magic and spells. Hocus is a classic card game beloved by ancient folk, now redesigned for modern humans who may or may not have the gift of magic. It is about managing a limited hand of cards and wielding spells to create ranked sets of cards that are superior to your opponents’ sets. Using elements from classic Poker games, Hocus expands and revises them to create a fresh and magical experience.
