Prime Elements (fantasy card game)

What is Prime Elements?
Prime Elements is a free cross-platform fantasy card game for the iPad, iPhone, Android and Web.

What is the gameplay like?
The game inspired by different fantasy and strategic games such as Baldur's Gate, Heroes of Might and Magic and Magic the Gathering (MTG).

The battle mechanic is similar to the WoW TCG: each side has a main Hero character, the Hero can cast Spells and summon Creatures to join the battle.

The objective is to defeat the enemy Hero and keep your own Hero alive.

What makes it different from the other card games?
The Prime Elements - has strong adventure and story part, which lures you into its gorgeous and mysterious world of magic, brave heroes and epic ancient creatures.

It's much easier to understand and start playing. The average combat-session is only ~6-8 minutes.

And we believe we’ve found a way to balance the game mechanic in multiplayer so that even very experienced players still can be beaten by smart newbies.

All together it makes game more accessible and interesting for all fans of strategy games.

Do I need to stay online to play?
Yes, it's an online game and currently you will need an internet connection.
However, the offline campaign mode will be available in the future.

Yes – you can play against other players in realtime using any of the supported platforms.

Meet the Earth Elemental

Earth elementals, the strongest of all elementals.

They are made of the rock, and energy of the nature itself – Earth elementals are the brute force of destruction.

I'm always up for another TCG, but I question your decision to use WoW TCG as a template.

Shadow Era already copied WoW TCG so closely I am still surprised to this day that lawsuits haven't been flying around. Shadow Era also has a huge headstart on you for what will likely be a very similar game.

Anyways, good luck, hope your game makes an impact.

- our main goal -> the TCG we can play in very short sessions + give good chances for smart newbies to beat the veterans (call it "unavoidable forces of nature" or "terrain advantage")

- can you do it in WoW TCG or Shadow Era?

I really welcome another TCG. Love them on iOS. I just hope a game that's quicker and easier than shadow era really does work to your advantage. I already thought shadow era was quick and simple to grasp. Good luck. I'm guessing you've got a fair way to go yet ?!

Meet the Raven and the Werewolf

Raven – usually interpreted as messenger of Morrígan – a war goddess.

Wizards are able to foretell a death or the outcome of a battle – by the croak of the raven.

Werewolf, also known as a lycanthrope (from the lycanthropy – the ability to transform oneself into a wolf), is a human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf-like creature.


Carte - we did not play it yet, but IMHO(based on the video) it's very complex TCG\CCG.

The only thing that makes it's "similar" with the Prime Elements is 5 basic sets of magic, but IMHO this is ancient classic element systems: Classical elements and Five elements (Japanese philosophy)


We are able to increase the difficulty - it's not a problem.

Problem - to make it simple and keep it's interesting.

But simple and quicker TCG gives you very interesting possibilities, for example - simple Undo action (call it "back in time" spell) changing dramatically the battle strategy
