App description: Deep civilization-building strategy in a fast-paced card game!

There are many paths to victory in this competitive strategy boardgame featuring hundreds of cards ranging from great pyramids and war elephants to sneaky spies and crafty merchants. Perfectly balance your citys culture, military, defense and economy to outwit your opponent and win!

"Age of Rivals feels like a breath of fresh air in an App Store drowning in more traditional collectible card games" - 148Apps.com - 5/5 stars

"...there's a depth here that other games of the same length can't emulate" - Pocket Gamer - Silver Award Winner

"Gameplay is fast, very fun, and requires both an overall strategy and turn-by-turn tactics to prevail." - Pocket Tactics

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.

There are NO in-app purchases. All game content unlocks at a constant pace just by playing the game.

"Premium" CCG at US$0.99? No brainer for me. This is my game of the week.

Really cool game so far. Just completed tutorial and first PvP match. Only problem is layout on some screens on my iPhone 6+. For instance when choosing to play a friend the dialog box that asks for a password (i think) does not fit in the landscape view on the screen. There is also no way to back out other than to hard reset the app. Similar issue on the alliance creation dialog box .

If the devs are reading this, can we please get the option to require dragging card purchases to their slot? It is too easy to tap the wrong card with a stray finger.

Otherwise, great game. Relatively complex, but built on rules that are fairly simple to learn.Too cheap for the quality. Anyone with even a passing interest in strategy/card games should buy this ASAP.

Love how it really is an exact port of the premium Steam version so I was effortlessly able to login into my previously created Steam account and resume right where I left off with my leader levels and card collection!

Seems cool. Though I bought this to play during my plane trip tomorrow, but it turns out the game requires an internet connection to play

Immediately deleted.

There was not a hint that single player play would require me to create an account and to be logged in before I could play. WIthout doing so I cannot even preview the game so have no idea whether it is good or not. Anything under $10 is not worth the hassle of a refund request so deleted with a personal note to place this developer on my "Do Not Buy" list. One star rating. $0.99 seemed too generous to be true. I guess it wasn't.

My first tutorial got stuck on "saving" right before War tutorial. Had to reset and do it all again. Just so the devs know...
