"Age of Rivals feels like a breath of fresh air in an App Store drowning in more traditional collectible card games" - - 5/5 stars

"...there's a depth here that other games of the same length can't emulate" - Pocket Gamer - Silver Award Winner

"Gameplay is fast, very fun, and requires both an overall strategy and turn-by-turn tactics to prevail." - Pocket Tactics

Age of Rivals was inspired by strategy boardgames and designed to be ideal for 1 or 2 players to play in 10 minutes with plenty of depth and replayability. It's the "anti-deckbuilding" CCG, where having only minimal control over your deck encourages endless variety in each game and puts the focus on in-the-moment tactical decision-making.

Amazing. Just great.

Please check this out. You pay once but still have to unlock much of the card options from playing. It’s not a grind fest however, and it’s not luck of the draw completely. Once you open 80 or so packs, you’re guaranteed every card. It’s a cool concept. Best of both worlds balancing p2w and b2p. Someone who has owned the game for a month has an advantage over a new player in terms of selection, but after a month or so, all players are equal.

In terms of gameplay, I’m just going to say this: please trust me when I say it’s incredible. Online PvP is a blast and playing against a friend is even more fun. Enjoy. ,

Reluctant, but happy

I choose my purchases carefully and enjoy board/card games very much. After playing this for several hours I am happy to say it was a good purchase.

It takes a little while to see how all the cards can work together but after playing the computer a few times you get the hang of it.

Very well thought strategy choices a long with absence of ‘direction’ by choosing a character make this a good choice for those looking to add to their card game fix. I’m a big fan of star realms so a quick strategy fix is right up my ally.

Good gravy this game is amazeballs!

What a treat it was to discover this gem of a game. (Thanks TouchArcade!) I have lost 75% more games than I have won but let me tell you, when you pull off a win (rare in my experience) it feels great! I have already unlocked all the cards but boy howdy was it a challenge! My only gripe (purely cosmetic) is that I was not blown away by the artwork, it’s good but I wish each card had a unique design. Regardless though, the gameplay, design and FUN factor makes this game a MUST HAVE for CCG strategy game enthusiast. Kudos to the Dev for creating such a fun and affordable game. More please!!!!
