Battle Brawn is a competitive strategy game focused on tactical combat, deck building, and ranked ladder play. Each battle is a 1v1 match between two online opponents. Gameplay in Battle Brawn is turn-based, with players taking turns to play cards from their hand to cast powerful spells, equip mighty artifacts, or summon deadly minions to move and attack on the battlefield on their behalf. Each match is fast-paced (less than 10 minutes) with a simple winning objective: reduce the enemy General's health to zero before they can do so to you.
Battle Brawn is played between two players on a 9x5 board. At the beginning of the game, the board is occupied by the players' Generals. The goal of a game is to reduce the health of the other player's general to 0.
Each player starts with a deck of cards. Cards come in three varieties: minions; spells; and artifacts. Play takes place in turns. On their turn, a player may move their general and minions and attack adjacent enemies with their minions and general; summon new minions adjacent to their general, cast spells, and equip artifacts to their general.
