"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."

It's a digital only card game that focuses on drafting and economic decisions (I think of it as a bit like 7 Wonders, but there are quite a large number of differences). It's a really well designed app.

Agreed.

It's very straightforward and almost all drafting, resolution, and more drafting.

You're presented with a choice of four cards, the ones you don't pick are presented to your opponent (and vice versa). Then a new set of four cards are offered (so you don't get a second chance at something).

You draft your cards, and effects resolve automatically.

There are four rounds - in Rounds 2 and 3, you are randomly given four of the card that you previously drafted so you are only drafting four per each of those.

In the final round, you are drafting only from the collection of 16 cards that you've drafted over the course of the game, with none coming free.

It plays pretty quickly, and is pretty well balanced in my opinion.

It really does have that 7 Wonders kind of feel, and was developed back when 7 Wonders was really popular but had no effective two player version.

I still prefer playing this to 7 Wonders Duel.

Very worth playing and even after beating it on the PC I purchased the Android version as well and beat it completely too. It's very fun while you're still unlocking things, but becomes a bit stale once you're through everything.

Not a fan of this game, but I don't think the design is bad, perse. Worth trying at this price.
