BAS (GOD mode)

What is the Format of BAS (God Mode)?

BAS God Mode is a different take on the Original Mode. Games will be based on reducing your opponents HP (health points) to 0 to destroy one of their hearts. Each player begins with 3 hearts. There have been 4 phases added: Sun, Water, Moon and Earth. Power moves are earned in different ways, in each of the different phases. Tributes can be offered to earn health potions that restore lost HP.
