Each player has 7 double-sided tokens (angels). The object is to initiate, move, and clear a set number tokens from the board. (The number depends on how fast you want the game to go.) The game board consists of a number of squares each depicting a Celtic motif (birds, monks, beasts, etc.) and having various bonuses. For example, if an angel lands on the Fish square, the player can move his or her other angel 4 squares forward. If an angel lands on an occupied square, the player gets no bonus. If an angel lands on the opponent's angel going in the same direction, that angel is removed from the board and has to start over.
The board is based on a wood engraving by Randy Miller and is inspired by the Book of Kells.
The angels are round wooden tokens with the angel engraving on one side and the Celtic knot on the other.
The dice used to determine the move are metal.
