    Re: sealed with curses

    A "curse" is put upon whoever opens the game. It is "sealed" as in closed up, and a curse is given upon whoever opens it.

    Definitions 1, 2, and 3.

    Does "a curse is put upon" mean "a curse is enabled and affects to whom opens it"?

    Thank you.

    Re: sealed with curses

    That product description is a lackluster example of written English. It exhibits numerous grammatical errors and sentence fragments, as well as multiple punctuation errors.

    I would not recommend analyzing it for learning purposes.

    Is the mistakes only grammatic ones or related to word meaning?

    Thank you.

    Re: sealed with curses

    Much of the description is an incomprehensible word salad. There's no way to judge whether its author made more mistakes in vocabulary, grammar, or punctuation.
