A truly medieval card game, that is free to download in the modern world!

Ortus Regni is a new and novel card game inspired by the late Anglo-Saxon period of English history. The Late Anglo-Saxon era in English history is a time of warring Earls. Minor kings all, they claim whatever lands they can. They establish fiefs, cultivate powerful vassals, and fight and engage in endless political struggles. All the while, the Vikings roam not just the sea, but the land.

It is truly a Dark Age. Or is it?

This is Ortus Regni, the birth of the kingdom.

The ancient world is dead. The world is reborn. Anyone can become a king through politics and diplomacy or by the blade. And it is always, in the end, by the blade. Will it be you?

Ortus Regni is a unique closed-deck, deck-design strategy card game. Players take the role of great Earls vying to control what will become England. Ortus Regni was inspired not only by Anglo-Saxon history, but also by the art of illuminated medieval manuscripts.

QUICK AND EASY DECK BUILDING: Or let the app build you one, and the save the decks you like.

TUTORIAL SYSTEM: Journey through the basics of the game.

COMPLETE CARD SET INCLUDED: no in game currency or card harvesting.

It was highlighted in BGG and Pocket Tactics some time before.

Yes you read it right, a full card game, completed with full tutorial, solo play against AI and online multiplayer, totally free! No ads, no hidden cost, no IAP.

It is a card game similar to MtG and is a full port of the deluxe physical card game of the same name.

Great game - tutorial got me nowhere, had to watch a few YouTube vids, but the app is great for single player to get to grips (not had the confidence to go multiplayer yet!)

Very nice,totally free game!

I was under the impression this had been out for quite a while now. Haven't tried it yet though was curious about it.
Is the online multiplayer asynchronous?
