From the rules:

S-P-O-N-G-E: Fight the Evil is a card game based on the adventures of S-P-O-N-G-E (see http://s-p-o-n-g-e.com).

In the game, each player is a SPONGE Historian, helping out on an investigation. The Historian position at SPONGE is often a short-lived one, and the “Inactive Files” are full of past Historians that “didn’t make it”.

The object of the game is to last longer than any of your fellow Historians.

There are numerous ways to lose the game. Basically, any action that would put you into one of the Inactive Files (Known Dead, Presumed Dead, Asylum, Missing, Resigned, Inaccessible, or Other) also puts you out of the game. The only exception is the Reanimated file. If you die and get reanimated, you can keep playing the game, but you will suffer certain restrictions, making “winning” more difficult.

Each player also represents the “forces of Evil” that threaten to thwart SPONGE at every turn. This means that you will be playing cards on your opponents as often as you play them on yourself.
