    Medieval themed closed deck card game, simple enough for players of all ages

    • Simple enough for beginner players
    • Start playing immediately
    • Lots of cards to discover
    • Play P2P or versus CPU
    • Seasoned players will want more complexity
    • Sound design minimal

    "Oh no, not the Blobbin' Goblins again..."

    Storm the castle walls! Castle Wars is a closed deck card game, in which you have to defeat your CPU or human opponent with the cards you are dealt.

    Each turn, choose to play or discard one of the cards in your hand. Each card costs a certain number of gems, and can give you resources, alter your stats, or attack your enemy, represented by their castle. You'll need a balanced strategy to take down the enemy castle, keeping in mind defense of your own structure, amount of stockpiled gems, and what cards you have in your hand.

    Each card displays what it does really clearly, making it simple to start playing immediately. The complexity and themes are perfect for players for any age, although seasoned card game players will probably crave something more meaty.

    The default is to play against the CPU, but it's also possible to challenge your friends via Facebook or email. Going P2P with random users is another option.

    Castle Wars isn't going to win any originality awards, but it's a great choice for players just starting out with the genre.

    Mines & Magic is a casual yet strategic card battle adventure for everyone. Clash against countless foes in a Single Player Adventure mode for the ages! Not good enough? Try the new Arena mode to wage war with other players, and show them who's REALLY got the strongest deck! Don't like being too competitive? Face off against your friends and have the most fun you'll ever have! While you're at it, swing by The Forge, where you can destroy lesser cards to forge powerful Epics. Level up and defeat enemies to unlock new worlds, cards, avatars and castles.

    Mines & Magic is the brand spanking new name of Castle Wars, and is part of an ongoing massive overhaul to every aspect of the already solid game. We have completely redesigned the UI, the battlefield, and have added tons of new single player content. We've also balanced and added a multitude of awesome new cards. We've listened to the feedback of our fans for the last few years and are here to say: this is what you've been waiting for.

    Defend your castle against an onslaught of foes by building up your defenses. A strong Wall and a Strong castle are vital! Increasing your gem production will be key to having an advantage over your opponent, and is done by sacrificing cards. Once you're ready, devastate your enemies with a full on offensive. Lay waste to your opponents and be the Last Castle Standing!
