Gotta text 'em all!

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if Emoji were a Pokémon style card game? Well wonder no more...

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

The game works like this. You will need 2 players.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

Choose 5 cards for your "Emojimon team".

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

You must choose 5 different Emoji, no duplicates.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

Though you may choose the same Emoji as your opponent.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

There are 25 Emojimon Cards to choose from, so try not to pick the exact same 5 as your opponent.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

Now you both display your team 5 of Emoji.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

You each get 50 Health Points to begin with.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

Now flip a coin to decide who goes first.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

Player 1 texts his first Emoji to Player 2.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

Player 2 counters with his first Emoji.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

You subtract the number of attack points of the opposing Emoji from the defense points of your Emoji.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

If there is anything left over, you subtract that number from your 50 Health Points.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

So if you play an Emoji with an attack score of 8, and your opponent has a defense score of 4, they lose a total of 4 Health Points.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

Once you've both subtracted your score, you play your second Emojis.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

You can't keep cumulative defense points from a previous round.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

Each new head-to-head is a separate battle.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

Once you've played all 5 rounds, the player with the most Health Points remaining wins.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

So try it.

Daniel Dalton / BuzzFeed

Or try making up your own rules. Nothing is set in stone.
