In Cones of Dunshire, a gaming experience for 2-12 players, the goal is to accumulate cones: four cones wins, but in order to get a cone you have to build a civilization...which is where the Spirit Cards come in. Each player takes on the identity of one of two wizards, a maverick, the Arbiter, two warriors, a corporal, or a ledgerman (who doesn't play but keeps score while wearing a hat that says "Ledgerman"). Then there's the Challenge Play...the thing about the Challenge Play is that it's basically the reverse.

Note: this is not a real game.
