Confusion is a game where you use peculiar cards in strange combinations to win in fourteen stages over seven rounds. Cards may be purchased, which affects their price through the game. A manual indirectly explains the card interactions through an absurd storyline. Your opponents have varying levels of skill. The game contains hidden advisors and tips. If you succeed in buying the right cards, shuffling, and playing the "higgins", you will get a high rank, but only players in the lead may enter the final round.
