    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.
