play both players chose the same number of cards to begin play and then
they expose those cards to each other.
play is then determined by whatever means agreed upon (usually a die or
card play, the players then write down each others POP (Points of Pain)
rating , as well as their own.
Then the player that was determined to go first rolls his/her dice, which
determines the move of his/her wrestler as well as the POP that wrestler
inflicted on their opponent (see chart on how to read a card).
Then that result is deducted from their opponent’s total POP rating.
Play is alternated in the order that was predetermined prior to play.
This continues until one player has reduced his opponent’s total POP
rating to zero or less.
The opponent who has had his POP rating reduced to zero or less loses and
does not get any more attacks.
The winner gets to keep all the cards defeated in the ‘ring’ or play.
