The object of the game is to gather cards into sets representing the battles of each war of the United States.
The thirty-six cards are divided into six "suits" designated by the following flags: American, English, English Naval, Spanish, Mexican, and Tripolitan. The cards contain questions related to the following wars: the American Revolution, War with the Barbary Pirates, War of 1812, Mexican War, U.S. Civil War and the Spanish-American War. The instructions are printed inside the lid of the box.
The players acquire cards from other players by correctly answering questions on the cards.
