Here is an overview of the game, via WSS Playground:
In Touhou DollDraft, you form teams comprising “dollified” Touhou Project characters and send them into battle against each other. Characters can be made stronger by gathering characters from the same group together, or by putting characters who have special feelings for one another on the same team. Can be played by up to four players online.
All characters belong to a specific tribe and each has their own strength value, unique skills and costs. Additionally, each character also is assigned an “affinity” value towards each of the other characters, putting characters with special feelings for each other in the same team will result in a boost in strength.
Purchase dolls with game currency that save up over time. Every player present will be locked in a real-time tug-of-war for the best dolls available. If you’re willing, you can even pay extra to snatch somebody else’s dolls.
Form your team with the dolls that you’ve picked. Players can pay extra to increase the number of dolls they can include in their team.
In battle, each turn sees the players engage in two 1 vs 1 battles in turns, players will continue picking dolls and engaging in battle until somebody’s HP reaches zero.
