There are icons on the card and text. With a crib sheet (or after playing some games), I think you could play it without nowing English. The text is mostly: gain icons, convert something, choose opponent.

*edit*
This is a great example of both text and icons on the card:

I confirm (I played the game several times): The icons are pretty clear. Only a few very specific cards have an "unique" icon ("Communism", "John Lenon", ...), but in all case, the text is just the icon explanation. after your first play, you'll have memorized all of those.

I played this with my son, who doesn't understand English well. It was fine. While there is some text in the cards, all cards are always visible and public, so if there's something you don't understand, it's easy to ask.
