Runewards: Gwent-like Strategy Card Game (by FredBear Games)



#GooglePlay: https://goo.gl/iche3b

Runewards is a free-to-play competitive Gwent-like strategy card game set in a fantasy themed world that allows players to battle one against another. Runewards is a game about strategy, about bluffing and about out-smarting your opponent.

In Runewards, players can play solo versus A.I. or other players in Unranked or Ranked Matches. Each player begins with 10 cards, containing Spells, Units and a Hero. The Player with the highest Power value at the end of the round wins.

Players can also compete in Seasonal Leagues, where reaching higher Leagues will reward the player with gifts (Chests, Cards, Gold and Runes) depending on what position they finished at the end of the Season.

Players will be able to increase their Deck Collection simply by playing the game. They can also earn cards by completing daily Quests, which reward Gold The currency that is being used in the game to purchase chests. Chests contain cards that can be added to your Deck Collection.

If you want to succeed, you will need more than just playing the game, you will need to outplay your opponent!

== GAME INFO ==
The game board where you will play against other players is called Battlefield. The Battlefield is composed of three lanes (shown in brick-mortar composition) per player called Territories, all of which is based on unit card's Affiliation.

The Territories play a crucial part of Runeward's gameplay because many cards, spells and heroes can affect them in a variety of ways.

On the right part of the screen you have the Heroes which you can pick when you make your deck. There are several heroes for every army in the game.

Cards: Runewards has three types of cards: Heroes, Units and Spells.
