A great game! I find myself wanting to play another game of it on a regular basis. The people in our group feel the same way.

Great deck building game. I love the game. It has great interaction, but I really dislike the Prestige point cards and wound cards....

What Dominion should have been. Still features mediocre interaction mechanics, but at least you get to do something with your cards other than buy more cards.

Es un juego basado en armar con las cartas un buen grupo de héroes, mercenarios,aliados,hechizos y armas lo suficientemente fuerte para combatir los monstruos del laberinto y las armadas de los demás jugadores.El batallón y la estrategia se van armando a medida que se reúne el oro necesario para comprarlos. Hay que tener en cuenta los valores y hacer los cálculos, para determinar la fuerza y la capacidad defensiva de los aliados antes de atacar, ya que ser recibirán heridas de los ataques defensivos de los enemigos.Al final si se gana la batalla,los valores de los enemigos se convertirán en puntos de victoria que definirán el ganador del juego.

It's one part Ascension, in it's tactical nature and buy/combat row; yet you're building a tableau and can attack other player's tableau/army for points, which is another way to reach an end game condition.

It's strange that those two games have so many similarities yet came out at the same time.

I think I'm leaning toward Graxia a bit more yet Ascension has such a short play time and setup/breakdown to it's advantage.

Good mechanics weighed down by a lot of downtime between turns, at least with 5 players. I'll probably like it more when playing with 3-4.

This feels like Thunderstone should have been. The problem with Thunderstone is that the dungeon bash is deterministic, which leaves no room for tension. Here, the damage means that there is a real opportunity cost to attacking too soon, and you leave yourself vulnerable to attacks from the opponent.

Very provisional rating - need to play it more, then the rating may alter dramatically. One play of a 2 player game and I was intrigued. Lots to like here - muligans to drill for a clutch card (and spells to do the same), nice mix of actions and I like the random appearance of the cards to 'buy' - makes setup and put away a breeze!

However it's not perfect - lots of adding up for combat attack and defence (but if you've played Magic you'd be used to that) but unlike Magic you have to throw all your units into the combat (rather than decide who attacks and then who defends) so it's rather more critical to get it right.

This takes me to my other concern - multiplayer, I could see this suffering from downtime as there is a lot to consider in your turn, and not much planning you can do outside of it - futhermore given the PvP combat you need to get it right, so they'll be checking/rechecking all the time ... probably some play aids (such as MtG spin down dice) for tracking attack/defence will help a bit - but some characters & weapons give big bonuses for PvP combat ...

All in all, a game I suspect I'd play more often with 2 than more ... but with 2 it seems pretty good.

Only 1 game so I'm still at the stage where I haven't really seen the whole elephant yet. I like what I saw. Nicer artwork than Dominion & even Thunderstone. Possibly more interesting interaction than both too, though this is blunted somewhat by the need to count up all the values of coins, attack & defence, etc.

Very MTG like with a splash of Dominion. And oddly it reminds me a little of Through the Ages though cant think why.

There is a lot to get to grips with here; the ever changing combat values, your strength compared to other players, the stage of the game and VPs versus board power. It might be just require a little bit too much housekeeping for me to really get into this game.

From one play i am also a little concerned about how balanced some cards are

This went down better than I thought it would with 3 players. The option is there for player combat, although the first to initiate this may be at a short term disadvantage. Nice variation of the deck building theme, with quite a lot of control over what you can get.

A Dominion style deck-building game crossed with Magic the Gathering by adding player-vs-player combat. Does it work? There are a few minor flaws, but there are some excellent ideas here, and ongoing development should see the release of an even better sequel.

Fun, but hard to get to the table as I own so many other card games that my group like to play. Deckbuilding isnt a winner with my group, Dominion already traded away. This may well be following them.

Trade agreed.
