The game is a minimal and rules-light implementation of the Apocalypse World Engine. Game play requires players be familiar with those rules. The game consists of a series of print-and-play Dragonfly Cards, each representing a "Dragonfly" character. Players select or are dealt a card for play. The game's simplicity is intended to allow the entire product to be contained in the space of a typical pack of playing cards, and to be playable while traveling.
