How To Play the Game
Once you set up the game, you divide each round into eight steps:

- Transform weapons
- Resolve instant effects
- Monster attacks
- Hunters attack
- Monster escapes
- Hunter's dream

Once you finish one round, you begin again at the first step.
How To Win the Game
The game's goal is for your player to be released from the chalice dungeon. Throughout the game, you will fight monsters within the dungeon and collect blood echoes. Your blood echoes are part of your overall blood score, which counts towards the end game.
In addition to blood echoes, you also take the blood echo for your trophies into consideration. At the end of the game, you tally up your points and compare them to the other hunters—the player with the highest total wins.
If you tie with another player, the player with the most banked blood wins the game. However, if there is still a tie, the players must share the victory.
