THE FANS HAVE SPOKEN
This game is Awesome! Challenging and entertaining. Not just some gem or gummy game. Terrific find!

I think this is the best "match 3" game out there. It's got a ton of RPG elements to it that makes it very deep. It reminds me a lot of Hearthstone.

Got to love a good mix of bejeweled and magic the gathering in an app. Love it!

Basically this game takes my favorite elements of Ascension and Hearthstone and gives them a different, and I think improved, foundation.

My wife teases me that Gems of War is Candy Crush for boys. It's an intriguing combination of a gem game and a collectable card game. I like the campaign and the guild play.

This is like the version of Puzzle Quest I never knew I wanted. Oodles of quests, challenges, guild activities, cool monsters, arena fights, ranked fights, and man I could just play that treasure mini game all day.

So far this really is just more Puzzle Quest, I don't think I could be happier with it

Ok I feel like I'm an apps addict and I feel like I should get some tax relief with the amount of money I've sent to Apple at this point, lol. Yet you still find all these games early on, how do you do it?

You had me at "From the creators of Puzzle Quest".

You lost me at freemium and the fact this would no doubt require an always on connection.

Wait does it for sure require internet? I'd be all over this if it was offline. The original puzzle quests were offline games werent they?

I was only guessing it did, I don't know for sure, but it seems to be the trend with games like this these days...
